Modification to ""Show/Hide All"

Postby OldGrantonian » Wed Jul 28, 2021 9:48 am

.
The older I get, the more popups I need. If I have people sitting beside me (frequently), I use "Show/Hide All" (SHA).

The problem with SHA is that if I click on the icon to add a new note, my screen is then covered with Stickies.

Request:
- Adding a new note should not wake the SHA notes (unless of course they were due to Show at that instant).

To make this suggestion developer-friendly, here are some possible compromises:

- SHA is a fixed time - for example 1 hour. (I assume that would be a single new option in Settings.)
- If the new note's Sleep time is less than the remaining SHA time, respect that time - but don't open the SHA. Otherwise, handle that new note IAW current rules. Reason: In my case, such short-lived notes are likely to be urgent, for example: "Turn cooker to low", "Breathe in".

Thanks.

Hi,

I'm not sure that SHA function you're referring to.. CintaNotes doesn't have one. Could you please elaborate? Thanks!

Sorry. I've just revealed my age :-)

This post was intended for the "Stickies" forum - another great (free) app for people who can't remember...(I've forgotten what I was going to write next).

Maybe you should simply delete this thread.

Thanks.
