tag control missing space

Postby Thomas Lohrum » Sun Aug 28, 2016 9:54 am

Hi Alex,

with release 3.2.x a change was introduced to the tag edit control. When the control gets focused by Ctrl+Arrow-Down Cintanotes used to append a space, so that more tags can be added easily. Now, the caret is put right behind the last word, so i need to press space myself, before i can add more tags.

Hi Thomas,

The space is still there for me. Did you check how its in 3.3 beta?

Steps to reproduce with 3.2.1

• create a note

• enter a tag

• press Ctrl+arrow up

• press Ctrl+S

• press Ctrl+arrow down

[EDIT 00:31]Maybe the setting to trim spaces does introduce this new side effect?

Did this ever work? Just checked in CN 2.9.3 - your steps lead to the same result.
A space is only added to the already existing note tags when the note edit dialog first opens.
Probably we should consider adding space on saving a note as well.

I can not tell what changed. Only that for a couple of days i have trouble adding more tags to a note, as the caret is right behind the last tag. I am not aware of such a behavior before that. Nevertheless, adding a space after the last tag is a good idea, as it makes adding tags easier. It won't hurt either.

Also i suggest, that when the control gets the focus, for example when i press Ctrl+Arrow-down, the caret is placed right behind the space after the last tag. This is similar to focusing the title. Also it makes it easier to add tags.

Agreed, this should greatly increase keyboard usability, and is easy to implement. Added to plan for V3.4. Thanks for your suggestions!
