Option to set tag sidebar visibility on per-notebook basis

Alex Jenter 5 years ago updated by Cassandra D. Everhart 5 years ago 1

"I have two separate .db files (two separate notebooks).

On one notebook, I want to have the tag sidebar visible.
In the other notebook, I don't want to have it visible."

Add subheading formatting to note editor

Alex Jenter 5 years ago updated by patsm00re18 5 years ago 1

"I'd love to have at least one, but probably two different headings available within a note -- they would be bold and slightly larger than the body text. This would help separate sections of a note. Now I just boldface a line to make it a sort-of heading. I'd love to have a couple of keyboard shortcuts to make that happen: bold plus slightly larger than body." (by orsonk)

Elastic tabstops

Shawn 5 years ago updated by Cassandra D. Everhart 5 years ago 1

I still have a lot of notes in Notepad++ because (via plugin) it supports Elastic Tabstops. This feature automatically aligns all content in a table based on the textual length of each column. Separate tables in a single document/note can have different tabstop alignments, since each group is separated by two carriage returns. This provides a simple ability to align information into a pseudo-table structure. If you use Notepad++ and aren't using this plugin, you need it. It's awesome. Elastic Tabstops ensures that whether your tab setting is 4 spaces or 8 spaces or 30 spaces, columns align correctly when text is tabbed consistently.

Here's an example of how it works in Notepad++:

Vs the same table in CintaNotes:

Image 130

Among other things, this feature would allow note content to be able to be easily and quickly copied to/from Excel without having to munge the number of tabs that are currently required to make text align correctly. Likewise, any other application that supports tab-separated content would work, too (Access, phpMyAdmin, SQL Server, Adminer, HTML tables, WordPress and many more). This would greatly improve application compatibility.

This is different from the Smart Tabs request since Smart Tabs inserts spaces (yuck!).

I believe this is different from the Quick table creation request because that appears to require special formatting (RTF or HTML) where Elastic Tabstops works on plain text in notes where formatting is stripped. When you strip formatting (CTRL+D) tabs remain tabs so the pseudo-table alignment is preserved.

Better batch operation support

Alex Jenter 5 years ago updated 5 years ago 1

Maybe the most oustanding feature of Cintanotes is its incredible fastness,
but editing multiple notes in one go is still very inconvenient and, in my humble opinion, its biggest downside.

Generally I am missing further "Bulk Actions" or "Batch Routines", for example to

• Add / Replace / Remove: Links, remarks, attachments, (parts of) titles, (parts of) text
• Save attachments
• Edit properties (dates)
• Clear formatting

For some cases there might be a workaround by using Export/Import, but that's no fast editing.

Highlight option for foreign language words

Сергей Землянов 5 years ago updated by Alex Jenter 5 years ago 1

It would be nice to make the option of color highlighting foreign

language words, as opposed to the main language when editing the note

text. For example, I make a note where the main language is Russian and

it is necessary to highlight the words or letters of foreign languages:

English, German, etc.This is very necessary when copying text from

external sources, there may be errors such as "С" Russian is written as

well as "C" English.

Merge to a note via rules

Fred 6 years ago updated by Alex Jenter 6 years ago 1
- IF note contains/starts with / etc. AOEUAOEU then MERGE that note to a particular existing NOTE (instead of just the section), and have the option to include the DATE.

- So that anytime I make a note about my brother (Ron) I end up with a running account of all his notes. This just simplifies selecting and merging the notes, and when they merge now I lose the DATE if it's just a Titled note.
