[Ann] CintaNotes 3.1.1 Beta 1

Postby CintaNotes Developer » Fri Dec 04, 2015 11:36 am

Hi everyone,

Good news - we have fixed some of the gripes in 3.1 :) Here's a fresh new beta for you.
Thanks in advance for taking a look!

Dec 4, 2015 Version 3.1.1 Beta1

In this version:

Enhancements:
  • Added settings option "selection.followedited" to control whether focus should follow the edited note (enabled by default)
  • Added settings option "tags.hierarchy.backslashes" which determines if tag input fields should automatically convert backslashes to forward slashes.
  • Improved display of note preview when note has remarks but no text

Fixes:
  • Fixed one remaining possible reason for crashes upon pasting rich text into note editor
  • Main windows position was not saved when exiting the program using tray menu
  • Regression: tags autocomplete popup cut off text
  • Editor: undo of some formatting changes didn't work
  • Search by tag text didn't properly implement whole word search (i.e. when "search inside words" was turned off)
  • Main window was needlessly activated after using "Add new note" hotkey

Download:
Installable: CintaNotes_3_1_1_Beta1_Setup.exe
Portable: CintaNotes_3_1_1_Beta1.zip

WARNING! BETA SOFTWARE! USE AT OWN RISK, AND ALWAYS BACKUP YOUR DATA!

Great, working fine for me!
One question: Where I can read about all CN settings (what they mean)

Hi Alex,

there's a possible crash related to the backslash conversion.

Steps to reproduce:
create new note
add a title
add a tag "aa\bb"
save and exit editor
click on the tag bar to expand aa -> bb
click on "bb"
double click the selected note
bang :(

Now the conversion is done on saving, but will be visible only after re-opening the note. I'd prefer to treat "\" the same as "/" when i input the character. That is "\" will never become visible. This has less implications such as the above issues.

As a remark:

CintaNotes Developer wrote:Added settings option "selection.followedited" to control whether focus should follow the edited note (enabled by default)

Thus it is backwards compatible!

CintaNotes Developer wrote:Added settings option "tags.hierarchy.backslashes" which determines if tag input fields should automatically convert backslashes to forward slashes.

The default is disabled. Thus it is backwards compatible!

Did you enable the setting?

That is tags.hierarchy.backslashes = 1

Thanks Oleg for your confirmation. Maybe it is related to some other settings of mine.

Tomas, one update - I have tested on Windows 7 x32. Later I'll check with x64 one.

Hi Alex,

i've just had another crash. It was not related to either backslash conversion nor pasting clipboard content. I guess there is an issue regarding the new feature "don't follow the note". I was organizing some notes, opening, editing tags and saving notes. When i opened one of the notes CN crashed. I did some more tests and i think i know what causes this issue and also the other reported crash.

The crash occurs when there is one note in the notes list only!

This new feature comes in pretty handy. :)

Remarks:

  • One minor inconvenience when working on the list is, that the focus will remain on the bottom note, thus a preview of the next notes is not possible.
  • Another issue is the fact, that the current note is not part of the history. Thus when i search for something new and come back thereafter the focus of the last active note is lost. If i am correct i suggest to enhance history to make the active note part of the search history.

The helpfile:

The settings that have no GUI option - ie you have to set them manually in the cintanotes.settings file - are in the section 'Advanced Configuration' under the 'Configuring CintaNotes' heading. The ones with a GUI setting are in the rest of the 'Configuring CintaNotes' section.

Thanks Chris, I have read this file before posting my question. There is description just of a few settings ... Where I can read about rest?
There are 271 lines in my settings file and I didn't write any one of them. I know the mean only some of them, many settings doesn't have description in http://cintanotes.com/help/

WBR, Oleg

PS Of course, some settings have names which are selfexplained :D

Ah, yes - a lot of the settings are un-documented. I suspect this is because Alex doesn't want people messing with these, due to the issues they could cause - the ones listed in the help file are probably the 'safe' options. As for a full list, I am unaware of one - Alex may have one on his system somewhere, but there is nothing public at least.
