Somehow reinstalling windows helped. So problem solved.

Apologies, Greybrow, I missed your previous post.  I'm glad the issue is solved, though.  =]

Hi forum and skwire,

first of all, thanks for this wonderful piece of software that has made detailed billing a snap for me for many years.

However, what I just realized (don't tell anybody because my clients will sue me with compensation claims) is that Anuran actually creates a perfectly normal entry in the logfile also when the popup window is simply dismissed (by clicking on the "X" botton)!

It must be untold times that I have dismissed the popup via the "X" button because I had not been working on a client project in the respective elapsed time period but was doing something else (for example, procrastinate).

Now I realize that every time the popup was dismissed, my client still was billed in the end because Anuran would create a log file entry also when dismissing!

Therefore, I'd strongly vote for a little code change that simply makes Anuran do nothing when dismissing the popup via the "X" button.

Thanks for listening,

Cheers
David.P

aagghh...

Anuran even creates a new line in the log if the popup window is dismissed by pressing "Esc"!

Please, this needs to be fixed!

Cheers
David

PS: also, the time in the titlebar and status bar seems to be wrong. It should read 14:21 (or 2:21 pm), but not 04:21

skwire, are you there?

Sorry for ranting on and on, but the possibility to dismiss the Anuran popup without creating a log entry is so much needed in my view.

For example, I just came back from lunch, and of course there is the Anuran popup sitting and showing that (sophisticated) text about what I was working on just before lunch -- but there being no way not to create a log entry (without loosing the last text entry's wording, that is)  :(

Looks like he was on today.  Which lends itself to the interpretation that he's busy right now, as he's very responsive (so much more than others of us).  Give him a bit, and I'm sure he'll respond. :)

Apologies, David.P.  As wraith guessed, I've been crazy busy with work travel these past few months.  Once I'm home, and have some time, I'll see what I can do about your reported issue.

@David.P: Here you go.  Uncheck the new option and it should work how you like.  Apologies for the delay.

Website | Download
v1.1.2 - 2016-04-26
    + Added an option to the Popup tab to allow the user to choose whether or
      not closing or using ESC on the popup saves the current text.  This is
      enabled by default to go along with the previous default behaviour.
      (Thanks, David.P)

Thank you so much skwire!

Apologies for not responding earlier -- for some reason, I was not notified of the thread updates.

Although now my income will decrease somewhat :huh: OTOH my clients hopefully will not complain anymore about excessive bills 8)

skwire, quick question, is it possible to add an option to specify which monitor the pop up is displayed on?

The popup should remember its position so, the next time it pops up, simply move it to wherever you want, enter your note, and save the note like normal.  Please let me know if this works for you.

That said, I can see where I can improve this by remembering the location even if you move and simply close the popup.

Thanks for your fast reply.  I moved it on the last pop up, should be due to pop up shortly - I will see what happens.
