Cinta Notes popup in silent mode broken — IE caused?

Postby Nvs » Sun Apr 22, 2012 12:47 am

Hello.

I use CN to capture snippets from Firefox in silent mode. It used to show a popup every time I captured a snippet of text. Now it shows nothing, while I didn`t change anything in it.

I would like to figure out why this happens and what the cause may be.

I feel it ceased to work after I installed SP2 on my Vista system and upgraded IE from ver.7 to ver. 9. I had SP1 before that.

All this just a few days ago. But I am not sure if this is the cause.

Also, I tried uninstalling the program with revouninstaller with all the junk and registry files, then restarted and installed it again, but it didn`t help.

I made a report with the dependency walker program for the debugging purpose.

Check it if you like — it shows it all. Some files seem to not work with the program properly, however, they are all fine, as far as I can see.

Get the file here:

I have silent mode enabled, you can make sure by looking at this picture:

Maybe it will be useful.

As for the rest of its functions, it works as before. Only the popup died out. Now I can`t know for sure whether clipping has worked or not — it doesn`t show me. But it works, of course.

What OS?

Vista sp2

What version of CintaNotes?

The version is 1.5.6.

Must be the latest.

What window/pane has Focus?

The browser, the proram is in the tray.

What key combination?

Any. Ctrl + F3 now.

What program and version are you clipping from?

Any.

Hi and thanks for the detailed info about the problem!

Could you please check if there exists the following registry key on your system:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced\EnableBalloonTips
and if so, what value it has?

thanks!

I should have checked that in the first place, didn`t come to my mind.

I found that key with zero value. I deleted it. It required an explorer restart to take effect, but balloons are back now.

IE-troll probably screwed that, I didn`t have that before.

Thanks for the tip.

I have this issue: silent mode still leads to popup.

Is CN minimized to tray at the moment of clipping?
If CN is just obscured by other windows, it comes to the foreground even in silent mode.

For silent mode to work, user needs to uncheck, "Open in editor"--a bit confusing.

Do you think that ignoring the "Open in editor" setting when silent mode is activated would be a better solution?
Please note that silent mode is about not showing the main CN window. And even when "open in editor" is active, the main window is still not displayed.

Actually, I find the use of checkmarks in menu options to be really cumbersome, because if I want to uncheck two or three items, multiple clicks are required (an excessive number), as the user must repeatedly select the full menu sequence to select or deselect each checkmark. Aside from this separate issue, I would say, yes, "silent" should mean really silent! No popups except the balloon tip.

Mike, sorry for the delayed reply. I think you're right and we'll change the behavior so that the "Open in editor" option will become disabled when "Silent" is activated.

About the inconvenience of menus - I agree, and we plan to move the options to a separate configuation dialog as we refresh the UI in CintaNotes V4.0.
