Revamped quick-open dialog

By | 2009-09-29T21:02:00+00:00 September 29th, 2009|English|

Today I made a (much needed) major rewrite of the "quick-open-tabbles" and "quick-link" dialog boxes. You can now arrange tabbles in many different ways (by name, by color, by color name, be recent usage, etc.) in order to find the tabbles you need more easily without typing anything. (Previously, the dialog was very oriented towards typing. Not so anymore.)Here is [...]

As nothing was happening, they eventually started threatening me (specially Maurizio). On Sunday I started trying to install Bugzilla on our *inexpensive* shared hosting. Since then (for the last 2 days) I've been fighting with: - Bugzilla(I won!) - perl [...]

Auto-align, another video

By | 2009-09-25T08:12:00+00:00 September 25th, 2009|English|

Here is a new video of the upcoming auto-alignment feature:In the previous video, I was executing the auto-alignment manually.

The quick-open dialog: how to use it productively

By | 2009-09-24T04:59:00+00:00 September 24th, 2009|English|

I still want to do it (if Andrea and Irma approve it), but I realized there's a complication.We are planning to make tabbles scale automatically according to the number of files they contain. (Think of an ordinary tag [...]

Judge for yourself if my Tabbles desktop is pretty :)(click picture to enlarge)Of course I have many more tabbles, but I have hidden them from the ground floor. (I open the hidden tabbles with ALT+c). In general, I only use the ground floor for tabbles that I want to click for first; later I use the "suggested tabbles" panel, from [...]
