Stefan 0 Posted May 10, 2008 Share Posted May 10, 2008 After using the latest version for a while (on XP SP3 and Vista Ultimate SP1), I'd like to report what I found so far: * while Shift-F10 now works (thanks a lot btw!), it still doesn't work properly: - select a note in the note list (tab there, use key-up/down to navigate to a note) - since when working without a mouse, my mouse cursor is usually somewhere at the border of the screen - press Shift-F10 --> the context menu should show up somewhere in the note list near the selected note, but instead it shows up where the mouse cursor is (usually at a completely different place, sometimes even on a different monitor!) * navigating the side pane with the keyboard is only working partly: - tab to the side pane - use key-up/down to 'mark' a tag - pressing enter does nothing, only space will select the marked tag (enter should work too, but not just 'select' but select and deselect all other entries) - if you have multiple notebooks, it is not possible to select one: neither space nor return does anything * navigating through the different panes with tab doesn't work properly. - select the side pane - press tab (the note list is selected) - press key-up a few times to select different notes - press tab (now I'm not sure what exactly gets the focus, but it seems to be the notes) --> hint: make it UI wise more clear what has the focus! - press key-up a few times to go through different notes - now suddenly the note list is selected again * send-by-email didn't work in the last version at all, now it's back to the same I reported here: http://forum.evernote.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?f=30&t=5905 * create a new notebook. Once created, the new notebook does not have an icon in the side view. Only after restarting EN3 the icon shows up. * select Attributs->created->since->this month --> Even though it's may 10th, I have notes show up way more than just a month. Even if 'this month' actually means 'one month', that would still mean the entry from april 6th should not show up (see attached screenshot wrongdates.png) --> after some more testing, I can see that none of the entries in the 'created since' attributes tree is working properly. I even get for the 'today' entry notes back about two months (those notes showing up have neither been modified or had a subject change ever) --> the same problem happens for the 'last modified' attributes Maybe relevant for this issue: I'm using a German OS which means the date format is DD/MM/YYYY and not MM/DD/YYYY Now to some (still) bad UI decisions made: * while the notebook 'tree' in the side pane properly expands, the sub-notebooks are expanded at the same level as the root node, they're not indented as for example the 'Atrributes' tree. This is very confusing. * the menu entries are always all enabled, even if with the current situation they won't do anything. For example, the Note->Merge entry should only be enabled if at least two notes are selected. If no or just one note is selected, that entry should be disabled. Most menu entries have similar situations where they should be shown disabled. * in Tools->Options->Tape the font selection combo works ok, but I doubt that many users can really chose a font by just seing its name. There's a lot of room just below the font combobox, why not put an example text there which shows up in the font currently selected in the combobox? Or even better, use a custom combobox control which shows the fontname in the chosen font (see attachment betterfontselection.png showing an example of such a custom font selection combobox). * The "Create Notebook" dialog uses a combobox to select from three (!) notebook types. The hint text for each type is only shown once the notebook type is selected in the combobox. Much better would be if the dialog was a little bit bigger, with the three nb types selectable with a simple radio button. And of course the hint text visible below each radio button so it's immediately visible what each nb type is for. * The "change dates" dialog to changed the different dates of notes has links to set the current date. A link is used to open a browser, not to execute an action. Please put a button there instead of a link. * The tags which are not selected are shown in grey. Grey labels indicate that they can't be clicked on, that they're disabled. But of course they can be clicked and selected. This should be changed so that the currently active tag is shown in bold and the others normal (but not grey!). * The buttons in the toolbar don't indicate that their active when the mouse cursor hovers over them. It's not immediately clear that you can click on them. * The default ink tool settings comboboxes show the icons not with a transparent background, which looks ugly. See attachment inktools.png.
