keep it simple, if the title of a note comes in a text, highlight it and jump to the note if clicked, linking to a new note with [title new note] of selecting the text and chose "create link" option in the right mouse click menu.Zulupad is a good example.
Thank you for the program.
I'd like to have at least one more link field, which is needed in the following cases:
a) when merging two notes having links to different documents;
b) one note might have internal and external links.
Спасибо за программу.
Просьба сделать ещё одно (как минимум) поле для ссылки, которое необходимо в следующих случаях:
а) при об'единении двух заметок, в которых могут быть ссылки на разные документы;
б)в одной заметке могут быть внутренняя и внешняя ссылки.
Удачи в работе !
I would like to see a way to link notes without integrating the links inside the note.
See http://cintanotes.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=1329 for an explanation.
If you are already working on this and decide to enable making links to other notes in the editor consider an auto-complete function. For example TiddlyWiki does not have that and when working with more than a few notes it is difficult to link.
Also make the linking case insensitive. Nothing worse then linking to [Today] in the middle of a sentence... :-). [Today] and [today] should be the same note.
That is a big diasppointment, autorecognition can't be that hard to implement..
having to type nothing is still far better, if a note has the title "todo" then the todo in "some things todo is better than nothing to do" could be automaticly a link
And this will work only if there's just one note titled "todo" anyway, which is quite a limitation.
nuts? todo will just be hlighted as a link, you choose to click on it or not, a few false positives compared with a lot of ease, also the titel is normally not a single word
not necessary, the link-evaluating part could just be activated in the view modus, the links could also be kept in the db so that they wouldn't have to be evaluated on each view but only when saving edited notes
notes with the same title in one database ? bad idea IMO, but in that case you could let it act as if you had clicked a tag, let the three notes be visible in the list-modus and let the user choose which one he wants to open
Why do not use something like hashtag? Personally I prefer to have a # hashtag for tags and a '^' for links, for example..
3) Exactly same number of keystrokes, but less possibility for ambiguity => greater typing speed
First: I make a suggestion, not an order.
Farther, it can be usable because it is also/already adopted in a lot of broadly accepted systems like G+, Tweater, FB, *Wiki. Ctrl+N is mostly adopted as a new document/object combination. Ctrl+Shift+L is possible, but how will it go in its process? Like typing a sentence then Ctrl+Shift+L [program activate link-add mode], typing a letter [program does ???? - Opens a dropdown with all matching note titles?; - Just makes underscore_font? with other words, what is the sequence_diagram says? :) ]. Or do you need type a word and then select it and Ctrl+Shift+L?
>1) Note text is not littered with artificial symbols => improves readability
Now...., any decoration / marking of text, makes it less readable.
>2) Link caption can be different from link destination => great for links as part of text
Then you have any way do more then just hit Ctr+Shift+L :)
>3) Exactly same number of keystrokes, but less possibility for ambiguity => greater typing speed
If I see point 2, I do not understand how I can do it with the same number of keystrokes.
I think we maybe have to distinguish the external links and internal links (and also maybe the link to a tag or other objects)
Sorry for my English. I'm not a native speaker and also never learned this language at school or in any learning process.
I'm utterly dispappointed now this is implemented, not only there is no auto*-linking as i suggested but it's only usable when you have a payed licence, I can't even try it. IMO you shouldn't criple software and don't charge for personal use but get your money from business users. Sorry, I stop contributing.
Peter, I'm really sorry that you're feeling this way. Believe it or not, we had good reasons for doing it like this. Here are a few considerations:
1) The Auto-linking feature can still be implemented in future, we have even started it but didn't have enough time to make it production-ready. Even the way it is implemented, it is only a few keystrokes more: select, Ctrl+Alt+L, Enter.
2) Almost ALL CN uses are of personal kind! There are extremely few company licenses sold (and about 75% of them were bought by Thomas ;) So few, in fact, that we plan to remove the Company license altogether, and just leave Free and Pro.
3) In what world is adding _new_ features crippling? Note linking is commercial while it's "hot". After a year or so, it will become a free feature.
4) People who really want it, can easily buy a license with a big discount, or even get it for free. There is a permanent discount program, and beside that I'm always eager to grant a license to active contributors. I'd gladly give it to you, for example.
I just wish you could for a moment look at the situation from a different perspective.
Anyway, huge thanks for your contributions, and hopefully I'll have the pleasure to welcome you back! )
And as you can see - Alex is more than generous and thankful for any help.
So I hope we will soon see you back in the community of happy CN users.
to you and those who help CN growing
