Re: A few questions on the ver. 7 and cross platform functionality

If MyInfo goes to a SaaS (software as a service) model for yearly rent, I will most definitely stop using it and move to MyBase which has had a powerful cross-platform client. Open source solutions are quite weak at the moment. I am happy to pay for good software, but I greatly dislike the idea of r...

Re: new feature: PROJECTS

Very good discussion here on tags vs. hierarchical ordering in trees. I have to reiterate again the suggestions I made several years ago. I feel these features would greatly improve user's ability to use MyInfo so sort and to find information and bring it closer to functioning as a qualitative data ...

Re: Ribbon bar?

I too am not a fan of ribbon toolbars. I really can't understand exactly what type of advantage they are supposed to bring for the user of desktops systems. With ribbon menus, the menu items constantly change and I have to search endlessly for the function I want. In addition, they rely too heavily ...

Re: Upgrade to version 7?

This is indeed very good news. I've been waiting for v7 for quite some time. A cross platform version will be popular I'm sure. I'll do what I can to introduce it to a wider audience and write a review on my blog about software useful to social science researchers at http://www.ambrosi.ca/gear-equip...

Re: Trouble Pasting

Wow.. That is exactly the same problem I was having last year. I thought it was because my Windows 7 installation was corrupted. I was using Webroot too and had very similar problems but was never able to find a solution. I am now running Win 8.1 with Classic Shell (faster than Win 7) and no longer ...

Re: Some thoughts about tags in MyInfo

Its been at least 2 years since I posted the above recommendations for improving MyInfo's feature set. I still think that these would be crucial improvments that exist only in very few software applications, but yet would be immensely useful. I'm surprised that other note-taking applications have no...

Re: Roadmap ?

I am really looking forward to a new verison. Though MyInfo is still my #1 tool, my work seems to be hampered by the lack of a proper hierarchical keyword/tag system. The web-clipping tool is still rather weak (compared to InfoQube, UltraRecall, MyBase). A mobile phone app that allows easy import in...

Re: "Find text" in both directions

Yes, it would be very useful to have this feature.

Hopefully version 7 will have significantly expanded/enhanced search features that will make finding data much easier. Although the current version is quite good, I've encountered many deficiencies with its search features.

Re: Features that might be added

Anyway, my point was, if that feature is critical to you, why not have a plug-in coded as soon as possible? Very good point Uzzer- I could hire out the production of such a word-count feature. Any suggestions on where I could hire a compentent coder to produce it? Funds are pretty limited now- I ju...

Re: Changing Color of Program Interface?

I too would really like to be able to change the colour of the interface. I'm not sure what "look" I would like, but for photo viewing applications, I really do like the neutral grey interfaces. They seem to be easy on the eye, are not distracting, and do not distort colours. Having the option for d...

Re: Some thoughts about tags in MyInfo

I would love to see some improvements to the TAGs feature. More specifically, the following features might be of considerable use to many users, especially to researchers trying to categorized the content of documents and link documents. 1. The ability to link one sentence in one document to a plac...

Re: Features that might be added

The word count feature should be quite simple to add. If TreeDBnotes had it, then MyInfo could probably easily add it as Petko seems to be a master of good code, very much unlike TreeDB which crashed often and lost plenty of my data. A word counter would be a very useful addition for writers, editor...

Re: Cross-platform version?

Hoping for some good news regarding a new cross platform version of MyInfo. A new version that has a mobile phone app that can sync to the destktop version will breathe new life into MyInfo. I am currently using Evernote for fieldwork research because it offers this flexibility, but I will be more t...
