During the usage I have come up with a list of improvements I would like to see.
I will list them here and will be happy to elaborate on them if anyone should want me to.
- Being able to format the heading (title) individually of each document as well has having a setting for the default formatting. Ie. I would like to have a more prominent heading (with bigger characters, maybe in bold and in a different colour) - at least for some of the headings.
- An indication that changes have been made, but not yet saved. For example a star in front of the name in the MyInfo window bar as seen in most other software. Maybe the save icon could be ghosted when no new changes since last save has been detected.
- Being able to define a list (actually several lists) of words and their explanations and then being able to assign one (or more) of these lists to each document/topic, for several or all documents/topics. The words on the list will be marked somehow (a dotted underscore or a special character right after the word (a floating question mark?) when written anywhere in MyInfo. Hovering the mouse over the word will bring up the explanation.
- Real tabs as we know them from Libre Office and Word.
- Shortcuts (as for state icons) should also work with the number pad and not only with the numbers above QWERTY.
- Zoom in and out in the documents by using CTRL MOUSEWHEEL and also CTRL + and -.
- Being able to use mouse wheel to scroll when in "browser window".
- When a document within same topic changes name so should the hyperlinks pointing to this document. Or is it because the hyperlink changes, but the describing text (which is what we can see) doesn't?
- Having a document named "Ronan Rehberg-Courdy" will give the full name every time a link is made quickly.Would it be possible to have the option to quickly (automatically) choose a shorter name, just "Ronan"? I can't see, how that should be implemented, though. More hassle than worth it, probably.
- If you make a document named for example Leaping Tiger and insert a hyperlink somewhere else to Leaping Tiger and then change the document's name, then the links should also change name.
Is it even possible?
Possible problem: What if you have given it another in the link?
- Batch tagging. Highlight several documents and insert a tag (or comment) in one and it will be added to all (remember a check to see, if it has already got that tag (comment), so we will not get two identical tags (comments).
- Be able to give a document more than one name that you might link to. Ex. Melthus which is the man's name, but he is known as the Night-sarge. The document's name is Melthus, but it would be nice to be able to add "the Night-sarge" as name, so a link using [[ can be made using both "Melthus" and "the Night-sarge".
- A horisontal scroll bar in the dokument window is missing. When having a table wider than the screen it is impossible to see the portion to the right of the screen. This happens for me when I make the table on my main computer and later have to use it on my netbook (with a much smaller screen).
- A keymacro function - so that f.ex. [[ may be assigned to a key such as CTRL + ½.
- Costumize [[ to something else. I would like to use | for example (easier to reach).
- Toggle tree pane (both by mouse and a short cut) open and closed - useful on smaller screens.
- Layered bullets
- Paste Special option so that things might be pasted as is, without formatting, etc.
- Impossible to see colours on selected topic. Perhaps a selected topic could simply have a red border (make it an option and make it possible to choose the colour).
- The possibility to decide where the settings for MyInfo is kept. I would like to keep the settings in a dropbox-like environment, so that the settings are the same, no matter what computer I use. This way favourites etc. will be the same.
- The ability to choose entry forms on a document basis. Using MyInfo for RPG I use some documents in the topic for characters - I would like to use one entry form for those, another entry form for cities and for some no entry form at all.
