Eep! I deleted my copy so I can't test - how big of a file can this handle comfortably? I just got into some Directory Readers lately, which list every file you have, and those files can come out 90 megs!! (Yikes!)

Even Notepad struggles with those, so I turned to the web to find a couple high-performance editors. The funniest one is http://www.movsd.com/thegun.htm - The Gun (Grown Up Notepad) shrunk down to minimalist glory of 6k (!!) which is coded apparently in Assembly and drills out huge files. (See also apparently next-generation TopGun with more features.)

You can download v1.0.72 here: http://www.donationcoder....opic=29268.0;attach=62515

I will be uploading a new release soon, just found a few bugs i should fix before building smiley

Would be nice if there was a universal standard for cross-browser compatibility...shame it will never happen...no idea why ever Browser developer opts to render things totally differently.

Rendering websites in a different manner, on a new browser is a very bad idea, purely because nobody is willing to even bother trying to support your platform.  Look at how popular Opera is, and how many websites that still don't support it.  Look at how many websites still don't render for ANYTHING other than IE, and even some of those dont even support the newer builds of IE.

The web design market is a complete mess because of how painful it can be to test for all possible browsers.

If it doesn't work on Safari - Screw em...As long as it works in FF, Chrome, IE and Opera, nobody really cares.  Make them use a real browser instead of spending a fortune on closed-source systems.

Thanks Stephen.

Is or could there be a way to set a user defined window size when EasyNotes is started?


The window size (Even in 1.0.72) should already be saved when you close the window.  It doesnt save the location yet (As far as I can remember) as I am pretty sure I didn't get around to adding that yet.

The things that save as of current (v1.0.72) are:

  • Background Colour
  • Font Colour
  • Workspace: Password
  • Workspace: Lock Status
  • Window Size

If any of those don't save in v1.0.72 please let me know smiley

Yay the menu bar is there!

There seem to be some bugs in the toggles though.

It gets stuck on some of the commands, so "close menu bar" toggles BOTH on and off, "Allow Window Move" and "Show Window Frame" seem to be both the same type of feature and then they toggle each other on and off etc.

Heh oops - "Open" doesn't work for me at all!

Even "Open With" just gives me a blank app.

I found/made a test case for the "unknown character" part. Heh - but I can't open it in EasyNotes!:
Not able to open anything either. Using Crtl+O or via the menu. Worked ok in the 1st version.

)

OK guys, I think I know whats causing this, give me about an hour or so and I will resolve the issue and upload the fix smiley

He'd have to say for sure, but it's probably non-printable non-plain-text characters that aren't in the default character table.  They show up as boxes when pasted to plain text.

Yes, I think you're right - (Another thing Notepad won't do!!)

Quick guess is that they're not text characters of any kind, but hard carriage returns or something, more like command codes. So get this, when I open up the offending file in Notepad, they're boxes, but if I open it in Wordpad (as text) and resave it (as text), they're all fixed.

It would be neat if this app meant I could skip that too... I might have to beg and plead for the menubar so I can switch! smiley

Could you possibly try recreate the carrage return thing in EasyPad for me so I know if I need to fix this? tongue

Im on a mission adding everything else, so you may just get a menu bar in the next few builds!  cheesy

1. "Whatever it is" that in Notepad comes through as square boxes etc (extra line feeds or whatever), usually from pasted data, always seems to go away whenever I open it in Wordpad and then save again as text. Then the second time it looks fine in Notepad. ("Whatever"  is ... expanded character/stroke interpretation?)

Could you perhaps explain this a little more, I don't fully understand what you mean

He'd have to say for sure, but it's probably non-printable non-plain-text characters that aren't in the default character table.  They show up as boxes when pasted to plain text.

Shouldn't really be an issue in EasyNotes, if that is the case, as it can load RTF documents smiley

Awesome!

Nice to see it is of use!

Is there anything you specifically want adding?

I was just using Ctrl-V as an example. I think Tao's emphasis was on making all context menu items available from keyboard shortcuts, so that muscle-memory could be employed after using the program awhile.

Fantastic program, Stephen. I'm using it right now...
* Stephen66515 is confused

All the contextmenu items HAVE short-cuts already lol

2. What if all the features were in a Toggleable menubar that you can turn on and off? At least for me the muscle memory works better on all apps with menubars, (which is why I hate the new trend in browsers and even gmail!) But then when it gets down to typing, you toggle the menu bar away.
I could add this, but the entire aim of this was to have all the options contained in a context menu and not a MenuStrip lol, so I don't really know if I would add this as a feature, at least...not yet anyway smiley

I think what he was thinking is that the menu bar would be toggle-able. That way, if a user prefers the context menus, fine, but if a user prefers to user Ctrl-V to paste, rather than right-clicking in the textbox and then clicking on the "Paste" context menu that pops up, s/he has that option. It's a pretty good idea, because many users prefer keyboard shortcuts to having to actually use the mouse to make menu selections.

If this is the case, you can already use CTRL-V to paste (as an example) - All the normal shortcuts work like they would in any other text editor.

EasyNotes has been carefully created to be heavy on keyboard shortcuts for this exact reason  Grin
