Tag Sidebar starts appearing even when turned off

Postby marun2 » Wed Feb 03, 2010 11:23 am

To reproduce the problem:

In CN, turn off "Tag Sidebar" (press F5).
In CN Options>After Clipping, check "Switch View to Untagged" option
Go to Firefox or your browser and then select some text and note it (press Ctrl-F12 for taking the note)
When CN window appears, notice that the "Tag" sidebar has appeared.
Click on the "View" menu and notice, CN has automatically put check mark beside "Tag sidebar" even though you didnt change it yourself consciously!

This behavior seems to be because even though tag sidebar is itself off, "Switch View to untagged" option, if checked, causes the tag sidebar to switch itself on automatically.

Thanks for the report!
This was intended as a usability aid. CN avoids displaying only part of the notes without the user knowing that he doesn't currently see all the notes. Displaying tag sidebar was the obvious way to let know that current view is not the default "All".
