Printing - save bullet heirarchy


I spent the whole semester taking notes with tomboy.  When it was time to
study for finals I printed them out, and all of the various layers of
bullets were flattened.  In other words
*text
      +text
             *text
Became
*text
+text
*text

This renders the notes virtually useless.  In order to work around this I
had to export to html, select all of that, paste it into OpenOffice and
print from there.... with a whole semester of notes.   Is there a way to fix
this?  Am I missing something here?  

Thanks for any suggestions or comments

This is known.  Printing is currently in the process of being
rewritten and this will be addressed.

As an aside, was there a reason you couldn't print your HTMLized notes
directly from your web browser?

   Excellent.  It just caught me a little off guard.  I look forward to
testing the improvements!  I have no programming skills whatsoever, but I
would love to help out in any way I can.

     For some reason, even though all the notes would show up in the
browser, only the first page would print.  It certainly is odd because this
is not an issue under any other circumstances, but I didn't investigate
further except to try out a few other notes to confirm that it wasn't a
fluke.

Could you file a bug for this and attach the patch there?  Otherwise,
we're likely to forget all about it.

Thanks,

Inserting list items

Hi all,

If I want to insert a new bullet item after an existing one, I can place
my cursor at the end of that item and hit return, which opens up a new
bullet item for me.

But what's the easiest way to insert a new bullet item at the beginning
of a list?  I've tried several obvious approaches, but all of them
require fussing with indentation levels or combining two separate
bulleted list, etc., and I'm looking for something more direct.

Thanks,

Todd Wilson

Go to the top of the list and type - top bullet

ie.  you have a list like this:

 o list 2
 o list 3
 o list 4

go to the top and type - list 1

- list 1 <enter>
o list 2
o list 3
o list 4

That makes sense, I think if you are to the right of the bullet, but
left of the text and hit enter, it should move that bullet down and make
a new one above it.
