Beta: fSekrit 1.3 beta thread
« on: September 18, 2006, 02:51:59 AM »
Believe it or not, I'm still working on fSekrit :)

I've set the release schedule for v1.3 at my birthday, October 15th. But I already have a beta version ready, for those that are interested (I suspect AbteriX will be, since I've added read-only notes support :)).

So far:
BETA1:
  • added:  read-only notes, finally :)
  • bugfix: changing key on unsaved document would crash
  • bugfix: saving an empty document would crash

Small suggestion: How about adding a right click context menu for copy, cut and paste functions. Sometimes they're more useful than the keyboard shortcuts.

Thank you f0dder!  :)

Brainstorming:

If i use "Make read only"
there is most of the file menu greyed out,, but the NEW button is still active.
So i can make a new EXE, which is still an r/o one and have the same PW as the original.

So i have this question:
why is the NEW button active for r/o fSekrit.exe's ?
Have anyone a need for this?

With this 1.3 beta1 i can use the NEW button
to reimport the text from a temp text file
and save it as new fSekrit.exe.
I would prefer to use the orignal exe to make new fSekrit files,
.. other people should use there own copy. ;)
So i think i have no need for this NEW button.  :-\

If i use "Make read only"
this entry is not greyed out ... still clickable.. but of course without function.

Question:
should'nt this entry be greyed out too, if it once was clicked?

If i use "Make read only"
the  "save" and "save as" is greyed out.

I can only save it if i close with the [X] button.

I suggest instead of  the "Make read only" entry
an "Save as read only.." entry
and disable the entry in the new created r/o exe only.

If i use this "Make read only" entry
in an exe which was created from the original exe
i get the following error in this daughter exe:

Steps to reproduce:
1.) original fSekrit.exe
2.) make an new r/w exe
3.) oben this new r/w exe
4.) press  "Make read only"
5.) modify the content a lil bit
6.) use [X] to close
7.) Dialog "do you wanna save"  -- yes
8.) Dialog: "Error. File is read only"

Ah, yeah, my younger brother mentioned that too - I thought that was standard RichEdit functionality, but appearantly I'll have to code it myself. I've added it to the ToDoList - as a low priority item, but it's probably easy so it should be done for 1.3 :)

AbteriX: I left "New" enabled since it can be useful to make a new note, without the hassle of downloading fSekrit from the internet. Password could be cleared on "New", but that wouldn't change much - after all, people could just re-enter that password after making a new note. I *did* disable import and export :P

I'll think a bit about it though. Anybody else have comments on "File->New"?

File->readonly will now be grayed out after setting read-only, added in beta-2 (will make some more fixes before uploading a new beta).

Your "Save as read only" is a good suggestion, and will get around some stupid problems, like the one in your latest post. Obviously I didn't test it extensively, hence: BETA. Thanks for giving it a bash!

Wow, after a long lull you're all about editing fsekrit -- makes me happy.

I agree that a save as read only function would be a good idea -- but to keep from being locked out of your files, you'd need an option to re-enable editing (password entry required).  This would probably be handy anyway.

These ideas are probably extending beyond the intended scope for fsekrit, but I'll throw it out here anyway--what about the ability to optionally set a secondary read-only password. Entering it would open the file in read only mode, so you could share the data with others at your discretion without giving them the ability to edit it.

Edit I spoke too soon, it's already been brought up :P

allen: spare time and energy/motivation comes and goes, and what I need is the intersection of the two... fortunately I seem to be in a good period :)

You won't be locked out of your notes since you can copy text from a read-only and paste to another app. Removing the ability to copy would be a somewhat artifical limit, people with access could just manually copy the text (painstaking, but possible).

The idea of an EDIT and a READONLY password is decent enogh, but that's a very artificial limit as well. After all, I have plans on opensourcing fSekrit at some point in time, and then it'd be easy for people to bypass ReadOnly. You really should think mostly of it as a "convenience".

What kind of status bar? :)

As for your privmsg about chinese translation, currently fSekrit isn't very translation-friendly... but I might consider support for that in the feature, probably along with unicode support. That's still a bit in the future, though.

Thanks, people :)

And not, it certainly wasn't depressing... got powdered in cinnamon (seems to be a Danish-only tradition?) since I'm now 25 and not married. A friend got so drunk he passed out and pissed our sofa, finally giving us the last excuse to toss that 15-year-old piece of junk and buy a new one. And a friend who studies physics showed up pretty drunk already wielding two coffee cans full of liquid nitrogen. So not depressing at all, rather much a barrel of fun :)

It's hard to be depressed at 25 (or is it .... I do't remember much I was too pissed at the time) .... the big 5 is approaching for me - now that is depressing!

And if I use base 50 I'm not yet 1, which would make a nice new start to life.

No where is that bottle ...

Not bad, allen - when are you popping by Denmark? ;). I'd fancy a bit of Absinth as well, if you don't mind :)
