[UI] Tag sidebar width

Postby Noddy330 » Sat May 09, 2009 11:39 am

I have some long tag names that I cannot see the full text of in the SideBar, e.g. auto-fit-sidebar-width. Can you allow this? Maybe allow the user to set the width, or drag the width with the mouse? Or maybe auto-fit to the longest tag name? Nod

You can add the following line to the cintanotes.settings file to change the default width:

app.mainframe.tagsidebar.width = 200

200 is width in pixels here.

So can we consider this issue resolved, or maybe leave the suggestion for draggable-width sidebar?
In the second case we need a poll.

I'd consider it closed too, with the disclosure of the setting herein, since I prefer to have a fixed sidebar, not having an additional worry about acidental dragging -- I do understand though that some people would rather have the flexibility of dragging to resize it. Should a poll be posted?

EDIT: It also dawned on me that this tip would be a good entry for starting a forum FAQ thread. What fo you think?

A FAQ - good idea. What about having it downloadable and in CinaNotes? But wait until multiple note files can be opened. Nod

Do we really need to download it? ;) How about capturing it with CintaNotes? :lol: We should also start putting these more advanced tips and tricks together in another thread to have them all in one place!

Shall we start a thread then and sticky it?

Maybe we could start the [faq] tag?

I think so, but I would prefer to have a 'go!' from Alex...

Sorry guys I'm in a bit of a Zeitnot right now, so I'm not so active on the forum. Hopefully in the next couple
of days I'll be able to finally release Beta M9.

The FAQ topic - I think that's a really good idea!
There is the "official" FAQ in the Help, but well you know, "nobody reads help" ;))
So having a "[Goodie] CintaNotes Tips & Tricks" thread would be nice, and it also could
be the breeding ground for the official FAQ. So go ahead;)
