sharing files by Dropbox

How long should it take for Dropbox to shift revisions in MyInfo back and forth between two computers? I did a little experiment this evening, and after a half hour a revision made on my main computer still had not shown up on my second computer. Is there some sort of adjustment I can make within My...

Re: mysterious error message

"Note 1: Missing some context about the setup though. Surface Go 2 is accessing the files directly from Dropbox? Or are those files synced to Surface Go 2 folder and next opened?"

The latter.

I've not had any such problems with my other software.

Re: mysterious error message

P.S., this morning I did some probing around the Web, and I see that External Exception E06D7363 refers to files that have become corrupted through imperfect syncing. I recall that there has been some recent discussion here about problems of that sort. Meanwhile, would it be safer for me copy the My...

mysterious error message

Several weeks ago I bought a Surface Go 2, mainly for use in libraries, and since then I have been struggling to make MyInfo work properly on it. When I open MyInfo (or sometimes even before I do that), I usually get this message on the screen: External Exception E06D7363 MyInfo is also painfully sl...

Re: serious problem with sorting by attributes

Thanks for the encouragement. Software bugs can be mystifying. I remember a nerdy old friend of mine from years ago: whenever he tried out new software or a new command, he would bring his palms together, pretend to close his eyes, and announce wryly, "We will now assume an attitude of prayer.&...

Re: serious problem with sorting by attributes

Once again, mysteriously, all is well. I have now taken a solemn oath that I will never again report problems here until I have waited at least a week!

Re: serious problem with sorting by attributes

As usual, I fired off my complaint too quickly. I now see that the problem is in only one section -- seems to be completely frozen -- of one notebook. Very mysterious.

serious problem with sorting by attributes

In the latest update I am no longer able to sort by attribute in the note list column. When I try to sort, either nothing happens or the program crashes. This is not a problem with one particular notebook; it is showing up on all my notebooks. Can you fix this soon, please, Petko? I depend heavily o...

Re: Colors, contrast, font appearance etc.

I find that I can make the text look just slightly darker by changing the background to yellow. The color combination I'm using at the moment is 40-240-218. It helps a little, though I am still looking forward to a better solution.

Re: [fixed] bug in editor pane zoom?

Just installed the latest build, and this extremely annoying bug has at last been banished. Thanks, Petko!

Re: Colors, contrast, font appearance etc.

Another excellent, dark-looking font is Volkhorn Medium (freely available on the Web).

Re: Colors, contrast, font appearance etc.

Yes, I've experimented with other fonts (such as Gill Sans, Rockwell, and Sitka Small), but was never really satisfied with the results. (Having been an occasional book-designer in the past, I confess that I am a font-snob.) There is also an underlying technical problem for me when I consider changi...

Petko, would you care to join this conversation? Have you by now found a solution to the problem of the grayish fonts?

Re: Colors, contrast, font appearance etc.

Although I don't feel as strongly about this as you do (and I certainly have no intention of abandoning MyInfo 7), I agree that the slight grayness of text in MyInfo 7 is unsettling and hard on the eyes. I raised the issue on this forum many months ago, and I can't remember now what Petko's explanat...
