Thank Chris!
I kind of thought so.

One question: Where I can read about all CN settings (what they mean)


Oleg, Chris was right - not all settings are properly documented.
Only the most important ones are.
I suggest to go through the old release notes, they might have some information which is not included into Help.

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!


You're right - this is the real reason. Backslash replacing is not to blame here.
Thanks for report and for brilliant analysis!
I'll fix this bug in the 3.1.1 final.

Regarding replacing backslashes with forwardslashes "on the fly" - I think the current way is preferable, simply because it is more consistent with another setting, "Lowercase tags". There tags are converted to lowercase also on saving, not on typing.

Thomas Lohrum wrote: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.


I don't quite get the problem, sorry. Could you maybe come up with an example?

Thomas Lohrum wrote: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.


I'm afraid this will be a huge change to how history works. For example, if I simply press and hold the down arrow key, you want all these notes to go to history? You can say "let's save to history after some timeout". But this also will have serious implications. First of all, not only active note needs to be saved, but also the current selection (selection and focus are actually different: you can move focus without changing selection when you hold Ctrl and move). Second, let's say you select 10 notes, delete them, and then go back in history. The history state tells that 10 notes should be selected, but these notes don't exist any more!
