It's impossible for me to use cintanotes for more than 10 minutes without getting eye strain or a headache. Looking at the white background of a note's window is like staring directly at a light bulb, and the text is so tiny it's impossible to read at a comfortable distance. On every application I use in which I must read or edit text, I have the ability to black out the background and make the text large. For example, right now I have this page in my Firefox browser zoomed in to 200%, plus I am running an add-on called Blank Your Monitor, which changes white backgrounds to black. These are very basic features for any application in which you work with text. It would be great to see them implemented into my favorite notebook application (which I have paid for).
Okay, here's an idea - I hope you understand:
I'm browsing through a very long pdf and want to tag various sentences, paragraphs and sections without stopping reading / leaving the pdf viewer.
I am reading through the pdf, I find a paragraph; I select the paragraph, then a discrete box comes up and I enter appropriate tags for the paragraph (there would be an auto-complete function in/to this box). I save/dismiss the box and continue my reading.
Whenever I finish my reading, I can go to a highlight section and search for a particular tag - up appears a list of the sentences, paragraphs tagged with that word or term.
Is this something CintaNotes can work with or is it an idea best directed at developers of pdf viewer software? Maybe this is how some pdf viewers already work - can you help?
I would like to update CintaNotes without the hassle there is at the moment: Download, shut down CintaNotes, select location to save update, select file, agree with EULA, install....
Okay, the EULA part may be important but the update process for something like SUPERAntiSpyware is pretty seamless....same for most smartphone apps.
When using CintaNotes for foreign language vocab (French, German, Russian, Italian) it would be a big help to be able to markup colour on words in notes, even it just as the hi-lite colour used in THOSE notes as opposed to a global hi-lite (eg yellow.)
In Russian I use blue for male, green for feminine and orange for neuter with anything else to mark the common gender or exceptions. Italian has some such as "il poeta" and German has many and French could drive a Russian mad as Russian at least MOSTLY make sense ;-)
And no, that is no typo: i use GREEN; women case use PINK for for feminine of LAVENDER or ... i use a pale green if i can find it. Light Green versus light blue TEXT is very problematic on a whitish background; setting a pale pastel green background is fine for BLACK text for me. There are very good apps for checking this issue of color legibility as a contrast issue.
When comparing oddities across Russian/French and Russian/German vocab, I use darker shades for the French or German. My fault for starting with "Polish for Poets" ;-)
Very often I have to send a note to another person. Currently I have to open the note, copy it to the clipboard, open Notepad, paste the text, save the file and drop it into the email.
I would like to have a shortcut to save the opened note to a text file so CN only asks where to save the file. This would be much faster.
