Re: A simple to-do list

William, glad you seem to have a solution -- and don't worry if we've spun out in directions away from you! It's been a fascinating discussion (thank you for sparking it) and when (the collective) we document the outcomes, you might decide to adopt something we suggest -- or not! But others will ben...

Re: Contribute Your Knowledge Improvements

I know (from relatives) how cataracts can impact, so will back off until you're ready. Lots of stuff to do on Simple To-Do Lists (and plugins) but when we get people willing to contribute to the KnowledgeBase we should strike while the iron is hot?

Re: Research Planner enhancements

Another thought: if your 'custom' task attribute has an auto-create note, it will currently be ignored, if you're not using the default auto-create note associated with the plugin.

Do you want that auto-create note to be used (if no other note contents are specified)? Not promising anything...

Re: A simple to-do list

And while I remember: NOTHING I write is perfect -- if somebody wants to take issue with it or change it -- go ahead! The important thing is to provide clear useful information, not that my name is attached to it!

David, If you work from the record list, you can being up the Named List Pane via the Named Lists Pane button on the Menu, or the Lists > Named List Pane Menu option. If you work from the Focus window or a diagram, it's a little more complicated -- you need to bring up the Named Lists Pane alongside...

Colin, the Filter will do the job as well as a custom query . I just tend to reach for queries rather than filters as my tool of choice.

Re: Wishlist: Provide a “Program Ready” event in API

That's the sort of facility I think a Wish List item could ask to enhance -- add other option to those workspace options -- e.g. including the Named List pane.

I've also done a recent merge and have acquired the same problem.

I then ran the Sort date plugin to re-add Sort dates where they were missing. I BACKED MY DA...

Re: Multiple source and image title templates for marriages?

If you're going to do a lot of manual tweaking of the title, consider putting the whole thing in the Other info box and making the template just {OTHER} -- that way any data changes you make won't affect the title. But it's more work.

Re: A simple to-do list

If you want to see the Records list alongside another window and the Named List pane (and your screen is wide enough, you can adjust the slider - if your screen is big enough to make it usable (I have a 34" monitor, but others will not have that luxury).

Window > Tile Vertically Show the Named List Pane. Slide the separator between Record window and Named List Pane all the way to the left hiding the Record window. Not great, but it's doable. As you say, people who work from the Records List rather than the Focus window or diagrams can do it more eas...

Re: Multiple source and image title templates for marriages?

You could try using the Other Info field, which can be included as {OTHER} in a template, or the Ref ID filed ({REF}) if you don't use them for anything else. Some time back -- and I can't find the post, it's so long ago -- I asked about having the option for different settings for different source ...

Mike, Was this intended to be in the WishList forum? Also, I believe that what you suggest needs lot more thought... It isn't possible to run a Plugin automatically, so in addition to the Program Ready Event that you suggest, you would need to add the ability to run a Plugin on some trigger rather t...
