Another build? I need to sleep less.

BUG: Anuran>Archive>Archive log I like the "Archive logs daily at" option, but it doesn't seem to work if Anuran isn't running at the very moment the logs are supposed to rotate. On startup, Anuran should check to see if that point in time has passed, and archive the current.anu. This is (or should be) the behavior for the "Archive logs every" option as well. Times should be based on current.anu's origin date.

Might need someone to confirm the above bug.

E: looks like jdm's experience is the same as mine.
Actually, in my case, I expect that the popup would have been open/running when the archive time passed unheeded.

Gah...I really don't know what is causing it not to archive since all the tests I've done have worked for me. 

1) You mentioned that your computer is on 24/7 (so is mine) but it's not in some kind of sleep/hibernate mode at 3:30 a.m., right? 
2) Does the "Archive now" button work for you?

No, it's not.

Jackpot!!! I should have tested this. It worked on the early releases, but does not now.

Are you running Vista or Windows 7 and are running Anuran from the Program Files folder?  If so, maybe Anuran is having trouble writing to that folder?  If that turns out to be the case, could you try testing it from another folder outside of the Program Files one?

No: Windows XP, full admin rights, had no trouble archiving earlier.

<exploring>... Aha! Last time, I tried "Archive Now" from the tray icon. This time, I tried it from the options dialog, and saw the error message "current.anu file not found. Nothing to archive." Recall that my data files are not in the default location. So the popup and anuview have no trouble finding them, but apparently the archiver is not so aware.

Thank you for the nice program.

It would be nicer if it supported Arabic as my entered text appears as question marks.

You're welcome, mohamedm.  Apologies for the lack of Unicode support.  The last time I checked, the Unicode version of AutoHotkey didn't support file I/O yet so I'm not sure I could make it work even if I compiled Anuran with that version.  I'll try to find some time to check into it.

You may know about this but the program is causing the 'return' key to be a carriage return before it is a 'ok' command.

This doesn't cause too many problems normally, just an extra line in the AnVu software. However if you remember the last entry it means that the cursor starts underneath the sentence the next time it appears. It also means that if you remove something from the beginning of the sentence you end up with blank lines

I think this is the following

      Tickets and VHS digitisation
[blank line added by fault in return key]
[blank line added by AnVu at the end of message]      
[blank line added by AnVu at the start of the next message]
   (2010-01-20 @ 02:11:18 PM)
[blank line as I removed 'Tickets and' and pressed Enter   ]

Yes, this is a recurring issue that is sporadic enough that it's hard to code around.  Let me see what I can do about stripping any trailing newlines.

That would be great. It's not very sporadic here... my log files are filed with blank lines.

Just a suggestion, but how about requiring a SHIFT+ENTER for a new line/carriage return? Seems to me, most users of this program do not need a new line often.

Just my $.02

have a look in the options smiley - on the pop-up tab you can set the Enter/Control behaviour (choice is Ctrl+Enter or Enter for new line & the other for close popup)

Yes, but that doesn't work properly. Even with the default setting (Enter for close popup), pressing Enter often inserts a spurious newline into the log file.

I'm just getting back to using this now (well, as of yesterday evening)

I want to archive log daily, It's currently set to:-
Archive logs every: [1] [day(s)]
Does that archive then: 24hrs after the first entry, or at midnight (the latter doesnt seem to be the case here so I will have to wait till later to check the former*)

I hibernate evenings btw - yes yes my computer I mean :p    smiley
I should probably better use the second option (Archive logs daily at:) but thought I would follow this up as I found it confusing...


* will report back later if that works

It will archive 24 hours after you click OK.  You would be better off using the second option where you can specify a daily time to archive.
