Problem with settings from one version to another

Postby Tony » Wed Mar 21, 2012 12:01 am

Ok, I've had Cinta before, and stopped using it for some reason. Now I recently started using it again and started with version 1.5.5 and set up a few tagged notes. After downloading the next version, 1.5.7, I seem to have lost all my notes. So, I copied the database from the earlier version to the later one and saw my notes, but they just didn't look the same. It didn't have the bold font for the titles and the font seemed smaller.

I'd like to know how to recreate or preserve my settings from one update version to another.
Also, I have no clue where the backup is happening. How do I find out where Cinta is backing my files to???

Any help would be appreciated!

Hi Tony,

please check the following:
  • Options\Editor\Text formatting
  • View\Note Appearance\Header-Font and Text-Font


In Vista/Win7 your data is stored in C:\Users\<your name>\AppData\Roaming\CintaNotes.
Your settings are saved in "cintanotes.settings".
Your notes are saved in "cintanotes.db".
Your backup is in Backup\cintanotes.hourly.db,cintanotes.daily.db,cintanotes.weekly.db
