Some more updates

  • improved tooltip and prompt when clicking [+] new buttons in lists (contributed by Danner Stodolsky)
  • you can add tiddler content (aka 'notes') using quick add by putting it on the end of the line after two pipe chars, ie .action|tag|tag||content
  • handy delete buttons for actions and ticklers in lists (borrowed from tracks)
  • date picker now shows S M T W T F S at top of calendar
  • little dropdown next to project name in a project lets you open all items in a project (click it and choose 'open all')

Thanks everyone contributing to the discussion on the mailing list.

I think you'll like it...

Firstly, Danner Stodolsky has contributed a patch to NewSavedTiddlerPlugin that gives a more useful prompt when you create something. Instead of "Enter title for new tiddler" it will now say "Enter name for new Project" and the tooltip when you hover the mouse shows "Create a new Project" instead of "Create a new saved tiddler" for instance. Thanks Danner for this great patch. Secondly, there's some little links to the menu tiddlers in the menus now so you can more easily customise them. Though you should be aware that at present your menu (and other) customisations will be lost when you update. Thirdly, as suggested by a couple of people on the mailing list/google group, the drop down lists and the toggle tag lists (like context) have a new option for creating a new item on the fly. For instance instead of this:
  • Create action. Realise it needs a project
  • Create the project and name it
  • Notice the project isn't in the drop down list yet
  • Close the action and re-open it from somewhere
  • Now choose the project from the drop down
Now you can do this:
  • Create an action. Realise it needs a project
  • Click the drop down and select 'New Project...'
  • Name the project in the prompt window and you're done
This same works for contacts, areas, contexts, etc. Inspired in part by the add label controls in gmail...

Demo. How to update.

How to get rid of those contexts/areas that you don't use

The empty file contains some example contexts and areas just so there's something there to start with. But it's highly likely you're going to want to remove some of those in your system. Here's how you can clean our your unused contexts and areas.
  • Update to the latest version
  • Click on any context (or area) to open it
  • In the top right click of the tiddler on the word Context (or Area)
  • From the list of contexts (or areas) click on the one you want to delete and then click delete. It's best if you make sure it's empty first.
  • Repeat the last step as required
  • (Note: you also can create a context (or area) by clicking 'new here' when looking at the list of contexts (or areas))

Another thing you can do is rename your contexts or areas. Do this by editing the context/area tiddler and changing it's name. Click 'done' and answer yes (okay) when it prompts you to rename the tag in N tiddlers and then your context or area will be cleanly renamed everywhere.

Some updates

  • use two columns instead of three almost everywhere
  • help popups now link to the wiki (though there is no content yet)
  • new view called SomedayMaybe and Future (under Review tab)
  • other little fixes I've been sitting on for a while
