Default [APP]TypeNote V0.9.8.1 (updated 19. October 2009)

TypeNote V0.9.8.1 - Updated 19. October 2009

A simple application for taking notes, sorted by category.
I made this for my HTC Diamond, but it should resize to fit most screen sizes.

Functions:
- List of categories
- Auto open Category (open your favorite category on startup)
- List of notes
- Cut, Copy and Past text
- Select All text
- Search and replace text
- Insert current date
- Insert current time
- Portable Application (Settings are saved in program folder)
- all notes saved as separate text files in its categories folder.
- portrait and landscape
- Scans TypeNote\Notes\ or user specified location for folders that contain .txt files.
- Export notes (all)
- Custom Save/Read destination
- Files from 'root' will be added in "Main" category".
-- This can be switched on/off in Settings.
- Hide/Show buttons and title while editing notes (gives more screen-space for editing)
- Open files with the 'Open With' function in file manager (only when program is not already started)
- auto show keyboard (on/off)
- Animation can be switched on/off
- Warning "note already exist" can be switched on/off
- Place buttons (save, Cancel, Delete) above the keyboard (no need to close keyboard to see the buttons)
--- Only in portrait for VGA/QVGA++ screens.

- Bugfix, paste-function now scrolls back to cursor position in large files. fixed.
- Bugfix. font size to small cause crash. fixed.

Version 0.9.8.1
  • Auto open category (usefull if you often use one category more often than others)
  • Hide buttons and title while editing.. gives more space for text.
  • Portable application (does not require re-install if folder moved and system re-installed)
  • Open files from file explorer(open with), (only if program is not already started)
  • If custom folder is used, files from root will be added in "Main" category.
  • Animation can be switched on/off
  • Warning "note already exist" can be switched on/off
  • Place buttons (save, Cancel, Delete) above the keyboard (no need to close keyboard to see the buttons)

Thank you for a simple, but very nice finger friendly app. I like the color and font size on my VGA (Fuze) screen. And I appreciate the way TypeNotes "asks" before overwriting or deleting a note. I posted this info at Fuze Mobility but figured it would not hurt to add it here also.

I was sort of hoping that the app could open existing txt files (if I loaded them in TypeNote's default directory) but TypeNote canít see the files. I was able to open a TypeNote txt file using PocketNotepad soÖ.

-Create a new file in TypeNote using the same name as your existing txt file. Add one or two characters to the body just in case and save.
-Cut or copy your existing txt file into the \Program Files\TypeNote\Notes folder and overwrite the file you just created in the above step.
-You can now view and edit your existing txt file.

FYI: I tried adding my existing file and file name to the NoteList.txt file (located inside the TypeNote directory) but that did not work. The above steps work fine.

I keep network settings and other trivia in txt files on my desktop and like to have copies with me. The PocketNotepad and TC interfaces are not that friendly for viewing or editing.

One interesting note. When finger scrolling through a note it is very difficult (I couldnít do it) to accidently highlight text, unless the SIP is opened. Donít know how this works (something to do with sensitivity) but it is a very nice feature and would love to see it implemented in other apps. With a stylus I could highlight text with the SIP closed or open.

Also, Sensor Scroll works (you have to setup in SS Settings) and TypeNote works fine loaded to the storage card.

Interesting. I just checked on my Fuze and the time was 20 minutes behind; Fuze Home Screen 5:29 (17:29) and TypeNote 17:09. Not the end of the world, but a bit puzzling.

Default :09 minutes

It looks like regardless of what time it is, the minutes are always :09. The hour is correct (24hr). Like previously stated, no big deal.

It should open the file if you add it to the notes-folder and notelist.txt. For example if the file is called Network.txt.. copy it to the Notes folder, and add Network (without .txt) to the Notelist.txt file.

Will see what i can do about the scrolling thing..

And TypeNote should work wherever you put it actually Its coded in a way that it "sees" where it is. So feel free to move it where you want, just remember to fix the shortcut.
