Thomas, sorry took me a while to get to this
[*]"File/Backup/Backup Now" command
I like it, nice. Actually i waited for this and am happy to have the feature now. Btw, the backup should also contain the settings-file
Could you please elaborate why you think the settings file should be backed up as well? I just can't see the reason for this.
The process of upgrading the database is good, but i need to get used to it.
Well at least it's creating a backup now
The progress-bar for export/import actions is also a good enhancement. Strange though, it never runs to the end.
Thanks for this observation. I confirm this for export, the import's progress bar does.
In cases when i want to rebuild my database, i use the existing settings-file and let CintaNotes create a new database. Thereafter i import my data from a xml-file. However sort-order and search-settings get lost. This is because, the database gets a new notebook-id assigned. This is probably done to register a new database. Since the xml-file contains the original id, i suggest to use it, in cases when the database is still empty. This way your settings would be preserved. Also cluttering of the settings-file can be avoided, because otherwise the old entries remain.
And how often do you rebuild your DB? Probably the best way would be to find and eliminate the reason for these rebuilds.
What you suggest can be implemented, but it will introduce a problem of two dbs having the same UID.
- Well done. I did some tests and they all looked very good.
- The caption "Size" should be "Size in KB"
- "Keep deleted notes for (days)". This is confusing. If the option is not checked, notes will never be removed from recycle bin automatically, right? When the option is checked they will be eventually deleted after 90 days (default),, right? Doesn't it make more sense to rename it to "Delete permanently after [xx] days?". Another alternative would be "[ ] Keep deleted notes for [xx] days, before deleting permanently"[/list]
I think the first option you suggest is better. However, I'd like to avoid phrasing where the edit box comes in the middle of the sentence - for translation purposes.
