Re: bug - not feature

Hi Owen,

Other than the fact that I really like the interaction of the substring
matching, no there's not really a great reason to keep it.  Though if
people chose sane names for notes it doesn't become an issue.  

The renaming issue is certainly a problem though, but enforcing word
boundaries doesn't exactly solve it, it just makes it less common.
Although maybe word boundaries is a good enough heuristic.

Re: bug - not feature

Regarding linking, auto-renaming, and wikiwords:

Personally, I'd like to be able to explicitly mark a word (really any
string) as a wikiword (link) instead of using auto-linking. Then I could
highlight something I wanted to link, hit "control-blarg", and the usual
magic happens.

If you did this, you could safely update link names without mangling
tales of monogamy (or monotony).

A variation that preserves some of the convenience of the auto-linking
behavior would be to only auto-link WikiStyleWords and require that
others be explicitly linked.

Time Reminder

Hi !

I was wondering if there was any plan to add a kind of reminder feature
to tomboy, eg. I add a note concerning a future event, like give  book
back to the library, and set it to remind me that day to do it and popup
the note when i launch tomboy, or something like that ?

If not, would it be relatively easy to do it, and if yes can you give me
some infos about how to do it, the best place to do it, etc ?

See you !

Support is currently in the works for:

      * Creating Evolution Todo and Task items 
      * Linking to and annotating scheduled Appointments

But I don't know in what stage it is, I am looking forward to the
feature, so if you can write it ... ;)

To me, that kind of thing seems outside the scope of Tomboy.  Surely
that's the kind of thing Evolution and other scheduling applications
are for?  While integration with Evolution for TODO lists etc will be
nice, I don't think it's Tomboy's duty to actually do the reminding...

I've had this thought too. What I thought of was just a simple way to
automatically parse a date/time out of a note when it's saved and then
be able to sort and search through notes by that date/time. I was
thinking of a flexible heuristic for the parsing, something that would
recognize "dd/mm", "Month, dd", "Tuesday", "Tuesday at 7", or others
as points in time based on when the string containing the parsed date
was last edited.

It would probably associate each date with a line number or cursor
position within the note, so you could have dated items on todo lists,
etc... The only user interface would be an "Upcoming dates" window or
similar and some prefs for "dd-mm-yy or yy-mm-dd", etc...

My C# skills aren't really up to par, but I was considering trying to
do this in the new plugin architecture. I'm sure there's a date
parsing algorithm we could steal from another project, the rest of the
project would be pretty simple, I  think.

Just my ideas, maybe someone else can use them...

Imagine I don't use Evolution, I just want to be reminded of one 
specific event, one time, i don't want to setup and use evolution for 
that trivial task !

And I find it's in the scope of tomboy: I think about something that I 
must do in two weeks, i create a note with what I have to do, and set a 
reminder in 2 weeks, and voila, that's all.

Also, there is no need for recurring events, reminding x minutes before 
events, etc just a simple "that day when tomboy start show up a message"

Re: disabling text in toolbar?


It listens to your GNOME toolbar style preference.  If you want smaller
toolbars, consider switching that setting in the gnome-ui-properties
capplet.

Re: Time Reminder

Raphaël,

Though this is outside the scope of Tomboy, it should be possible to do
if you write your own plugin.  You can check out some of the simple
plugin examples in tomboy/Tomboy/Plugins or in tomboy/Tomboy/Watchers.cs
for some with more complexity.
