@cschw
1) Can you give me an example URL that you are having an issue with?
2) Not sure what's up with that. It's working like it should for me. :) I'll check it out.
3) No I was not planning on making it resizable (if I decide to fully keep it)

@Jibz
1) I think I can do this....
2) I think I can do this also :)

Great :Thmbsup:.

Just tried running the theme editor, it gives a runtime error 14 at line 163 (in the same way as the main app).

I just downloaded again, and it is showing up as v2.0.0.5 - can you check on your end?

Thanks!

^yeah, xx.5 here too.
Also, I presume this by mistake: you have an ini file in the download (I just copied everything over before I noticed it).

Missed out on a couple of versions - great advances/improvements going on :up:

I tried changing the text colour on my favourite theme (the default one) - but (for my eyes and monitor at any rate) the darker backgrounds are too dark for black text, but not dark enough for white text. I've started using the Slate theme - it's got the lightest backgrounds I think. First panel is still to dark for my tastes.
Request:
one theme where the backgrounds are all relatively light.

Bug: cant consistently reproduce it though :-\
  • 1) open Note5
  • 2) maximise the window
  • 3) open a note
  • 4) change focus to another note with the mouse; window jumps back to normal size
-
Edit: this seems to consistently reproduce it - for step 2):
maximise the window => normal window => maximise window => step 3, etc.

Please try the DL again for ver 2.0.0.6

@tomos - You can edit the themes using the new theme editor to make the backgrounds lighter. I can still make you a theme with lighter backgrounds if you wish.
I'll also take a look at the bug.

I'm sorted - thank you very much !! (I had misread an earlier post, and thought I could only edit text colour with the editor)

PS download now xx.06 - the ini file is still in there FWIW.

Would it be useful with an option to change the font used?

Even though the small and large icons both look good, the one Windows uses in the taskbar (think it's 32x32) is pixelated here:

Update: v2.0.0.7 - http://vdsfreak.com/...st/90245038515/note5

- Fixed bug when window is maximized, it would restore to previous window state when clicking on a note.
- Saving to disk is now done when window is closed. Previously it saved when switching panels.
- INI file created only if one does not exist.
- Restore cursor position and selection when switching notes

@Jibz - Do you mean the font of the notes? The icon on my system is smooth and looks fine, odd... I was thinking about changing the icon anyway.

It just keeps getting better.... :up:

On my machine (Win7 64-bit), minimizing the program causes icons to appear in both the taskbar and system tray (screenshot below).  Could the user be given the option of choosing one or the other?

@Jibz - Do you mean the font of the notes? The icon on my system is smooth and looks fine, odd... I was thinking about changing the icon anyway.

I mean the font of the text the user is writing in the notes, yes.

The icon for the application in explorer is fine, the icon in the upper left corner of the app is fine as well, but the app in the task bar when it is running is a scaled up version of the 16x16 icon instead of the 32x32 icon. Here is a screenshot with the explorer, app, and taskbar icon for comparison again:

note5_icon_2.png

I've seen things like this happen before, and it's usually because Windows loads the first icon from the executable and uses that for everything, if it is not instructed to load the appropriate sizes (usually a question of doing multiple LoadImage calls and filling in both hIcon and hIconSm in WNDCLASSEX).

Just one question.  If I don't use the .ini from the download am I right in assuming the newer version of the program will write all the values it needs?

Edit: Never mind.  I see the .ini is not packed now. :)

@Jibz - I have made some adjustments to the icon, please check again.

Thanks for looking into this, but I am afraid this was probably worse than before -- now both the taskbar and the app icons look a bit strange:

v2.0.0.10 - On initial program open:  Selected Minimize to Tray, minimizing closes the program.  

If I close the program, then re-open it, the tray icon appears and minimize to tray seems to work.

@cschw - It sure does! Sorry about that. I'll have an update soon... hopefully tonight

Edit: It stays running w/o no tray icon or task icon. Still working.
