Subject: Lost my links again...

 
My QCP-6035 Palm Phone is great, but I do have the occasional hard 
reset - like this morning.  When I finished restoring everything, I 
got all my ShadowPlan files back, but all the links were broken.

Does anyone have a suggestion for reconstituting these?

Thanks

Bonsai can import Brainforest outlines. You can have 32k per note.

But... it cannot link to other files like Shadow can.

I don't know if it is an API.. but they have a developer's kit. (Which by the way makes you agree to things you might not want to sign)

they have something called a "plugin". I don't know if that would make it any easier to write or not.

The -only- reason I am not doing it right now is because nothing that I know of supports this.

Yes you would ask them what field to dump things into.

There is an app called QDiary that lets you make your own free form database. It dumps it's data to the memopad. Shadow might be able to usefully import the info.

Brenda,

Maybe I misunderstood you, try again.  Although I warn you, I am no 
computer techie and can't explain how they all work in techie terms.

Basically I am using cutting and pasting on my desktop to move info 
from my memopad into our access database.  We call the database 
'come-ups' and it operates as a tickler system.  It has a 'history' 
field and fields for info on contacts, bring forward dates etc.  
Because a number of people may be working on a file, many may be 
modifying the 'come-ups' hence my need to synch to see on my palm 
(when I am out of my office) what is happening so that I can plan next 
steps or answer questions (especially if someone else is responsible 
for the file but I am the client contact!).  I plan tasks and other 
notes in SP.  I export those notes to memopad so I can put it into our 
access database later.  My ideal would be able to export directly from 
SP into my thinkDB database which would then synch with our access 
database when I synch.  Our computer guru is too skittish that the 
access database will have too many problems if I modify it on my palm. 
 There also is no direct export to a database out of SP.  Although if 
you use thinkDB, it should only be a 2 step process to export to memo 
or doc and then paste that into thinkDB.

I guess the foregoing all depends on what you use a database program 
for.  I apologize for my babbling but it is getting late.....

Jeff,
Are thinking in adding HiRes support to Shadow (as QuickSheet does)? 
That would let shadow show more lines per screen and avoid to much 
scrolling. I think many of us would definitely use it a lot.

Ok do you mean you are doing something like this in the memopad...

Item 1
Item 2
Item 3

Then you load up the thinkDB deskop and cut and paste...

Item 1 into field 1
Item 2 into field 2

etc?

Is this done as in my example above?

Actually, this might even be easy to implement!

Now I don't know anything about SP so maybe this won't work but here is my attempt anyway :-)

Have a template file in SP that mirrors your thinkDB database.. like this (well if my example above is correct)

data for item one here
data for item two here
data for item three here

You can't label the items or else that would appear in your data.. you could put a line at the top for what the columns are

Now if SP can export to a CSV file you have it made. (there might be other data in it that you don't want though... you would have to look at the export file to see how to maybe change your thinkDB setup)

If SP can't export to a CSV.. then what you need to do is just do it yourself... putting a comma between each item in one record and going down a line (no comma at the end) for a new record.

Then when you have the CSV format file... just import it using the thinkDB desktop.

(wow maybe I will have to try the above myself!)

Also try out the program I mentioned called QDiary... it will let you dump a formatted free form database to the memopad. Then you could go into the Palm Desktop and cut and paste the memopad record as a text file. Then use thinkDB's desktop to import it.

I hope the above makes sense.

well that could be a problem... thinkDB is buggy.

I guess what I was looking for was maybe you had a special way to do the pasting.. but I am thinking you are doing what I mentioned at the start of the email.

	I will likely be adding hires support, though I wont' enjoy doing
it twice (for Clie and for Handera). I'm waiting for the units to be
around in Canada (the Clie was just released a few days ago and is 800CAN
.. ouch!). Handera isn't anywhere to be seen. So far I'm not sure if many
people will use highres modes to show more content.. it just makes you use
smaller fonts :/

Heh.. my only point was that since Shadow Desktop *already* uses XML, this format should be very easy to import to *any* XML-compliant application. I think it is way less efficient for Shadow to explicitly support n different variations of Palm databases. Sure, you would need to set up the field-mappings, but you do that once and should then be set. The only drawback is that it would involve a trip for the data to the PC and back and not be possible to do internally on the Palm device. What you gain is sharing a generic file format that can be used in a number of ways regardless of developer, application or OS. For instance, the recent Microsoft MDACs will let you spit out XML from Access or SQL Server, it should be as easy to get the info to travel in the opposite direction. The core support is present in Windows and lots of developer tools are available for implementing XML-support. If the current crop of databases today is lacking XML support, my guess is they will get ther!
e sooner rather than later.

Well, it's the same problem with all app linked enabled : DateBK, 
SuperNames lose links too. Sometimes, some links survive... It's 
really a good question, may be somebody could help. What's the way of 
linking? Something as an Id? There's a nice linking hack, never lost 
a link even after reset, that's PalmWiki, of course ;) Just point to 
title of a memo. It's really awful to lose many links, lot of work to 
rebuilt, sometime can't even remember all linked items.
What about a restore function, as Windows does for delete links on 
Shortcut : "the next item is ****, do you want to join"?
Oh, oh, Jeff, you're really going to stop sleeping and eating ;D

	Yep; each record in a palm database has a "reasonably unique" id
associated with it. So most linkages are doen by this.. Shadow stores the
ID of the record in question, so that it can be found again later. After a
full reset, the IDs will be all new for various reasons.

	Smart restoration would be ugly; theres a lot of issues with
having the app guess at what todo matches a given shadow item, and it
would take along time to process, given many of us have thousands of items
in Shadow lists. I'm not sure how accurate you could get, but it wouldn't
be 100% thats for sure.

	I have thought about a "re-establish all links" operation, that
just creates new links for broken links, but then you'd have doubles in
your other databases :/

Not even that complicated, I only need to cut and paste into 1 type of 
field but for a number of different records (? I am not a techie so i 
do not know if I have the jargon right.)  Basically our access 
database has a seperate memo field called a 'come up' for each file we 
have.  At any one time I work on 70-100 different files (I am a 
lawyer).  When I cut and paste I do it into access, not Think DB.  
think DB then synchs with the access database and brings it to my 
palm.

I second the request for HiRes support in Shadow. I bought my Clie N760 primarily for its HiRes capabilities and find there is a world of difference between low res and high res applications. It's not just fitting more information on the screen, the text looks much better and is easier to read. Text formatting can also be used to better advantage. I'm sure a year from now, most mainstream applications will support HiRes.

> title of a memo

That's why, now,  I build over 80% of my linking uses on PalmWiki 
rather than on a linker system (Dbk4, Shadow (sorry!),or LinkerHack). 

Of course links targets are only within memo.pdb or datebook.pdb 
(well, it's already makes a nice deal), but siurces can be any app. 

All my items labels now, in dbk4, SD, ... are "palmWiki designed" : 
for instance "ToBuyForLunch MarkFriends" (you can have several of 
these memolinks in a single line). 

In my linked memos, I always paste the date (a left slide on 
FitalyStamp, which makes the "link" to Datebook), and may add one or 
two keywords for any appropriate context (MemoLeaf filtering and 
retrieval, or Palm Find). 

So, I don't fear hard resets disasters ;-) 

Furthermore, this linking system still works on desktop: 

On a "PalmWiki formatted" item of PalmDeskTop (not of ShadowDesktop, 
sorry) : 

Ctrl-C, Ctrl-F, Ctrl-V, mouseclic : here is my data (memo, 
or "linked" adress, or Todo...) 

Sorry for friends to whom I've been promoting DayNotez very hard :I'm 
now seriously considering dropping it, now that I'm dealing well with 
my "PalmWiki linking system" ;-) 

I don't publish this in Shadow-Tips, cause I'm afrait it's a tip for 
less Shadow usage ;-))

Anyone have any ideas? This is the coolest product, and the best customer

	Actually, a lot of people this happened to just go on about using
Shadow and then sync again the next day, without a problem. But if you
want to sync fully right away, just delete the one XML file that is having
the problem and then sync again. (ie: The lastsync.txt, go to the bottom,
and the filename will be there pretty much).

	It is annoying, but I'll hopefully have it fixed soon (I've had
zero time for any development in the last 2 weeks since release, but
fixing this is pretty tops in my list)

	What did you do following the cancelled sync? (did you kill the
hotsync manmager processes or what?)

	Sounds like you must've killed it or did something at the worst
possible time; you should have one side or the other in fully owrkable
state (ie: The desktop file isn't updated until the handheld fully
synchronizes, so if you kill things mid-sync, the desktop file will be
preserved).

	Check the DesktopRef if you need to go to one of the backup files
:(

	Sorry, I'll get this bug fixed soon as I can :(

Yes - I ended up killing the hot sync process after about 45 minutes of it
just hanging there (after trying to cancel it the regular ways).

I did find the backup in the Hot sync manager directory and it looks like
I'm back in business. Thanks!

        What did you do following the cancelled sync? (did you kill the
  hotsync manmager processes or what?)

        Sounds like you must've killed it or did something at the worst
  possible time; you should have one side or the other in fully owrkable
  state (ie: The desktop file isn't updated until the handheld fully
  synchronizes, so if you kill things mid-sync, the desktop file will be
  preserved).

        Check the DesktopRef if you need to go to one of the backup files
  :(

        Sorry, I'll get this bug fixed soon as I can :(

Hi!

Just thought I would mention that I found a little weirdness in the links after installing the ActionNames 5.0 beta. I *think* this is a beta problem, but it could also be a change in the way AN works internally that might require adjusting from within Shadow.

Anyway - what happens when I follow the link to a contact is that AN 5 will open a seemingly random event instead of the selected contact.

So far it still links correctly to my datebook and todos.

	The shadow conduit keeps a tonne of backups automatically; check
the DesktopRef. (The palm has a file copy, the desktop has a file copy,
the hotsync manager keeps a raw backup, and the conduit keeps 3 backups)

	The AN guys don't publish how to ask AN to go to a contact. As
such, Shadow doesn't know how.. it just tries a standard goto, and that
usually doesn't work. (ie: The AN guys are the ones not following the
standard, so they need to publish their goto mechanism)

	A few people figured out their goto mechanism for todo/datebook

Well, it might be useful once the new features work as intended :-) Stable is a relative term - weird stuff happens, but it has still to crash on me. Reading the forums suggests this is not the case for everybody, though. One cool feature is the "Contact history" - a clickable list linked to your previous meetings, calls and todos for a specific contact. Multi-line display of meetings is nice too, but there are a couple of not-so-useful features as well. We (the users) believe there might be an upgrade cost, but it has not been publicly announced yet. The Iambic staff is playing the cards very close to the chest as usual.

OK, that's what I thought. I did post a message about this on their board for beta-discussion about the product. It did work nicely with 4.61, though. That should be a free update from 4.54 if you're interested.

Subject: thinkdb and shadow was Re: Re: new filter proposal

 
Now I am hopelessly confused with your question.
Here is what I do (which I hope will explain this):

Note:  I have a seperate SP list for each file I work on - named for 
its file number.
1. Export SP list for file #12345 to memo on my palm (I make it a note 
view before doing so as it is cleaner).  Repeat for a number of 
different file lists.
2. Synch palm to desktop.
3. Cut memo (or parts of it- the ability to export single items from 
SP rather than whole lists would be nice - but that is another 
discussion)from palm desktop.
4. Paste memo into my access database.  The access database has a 
bunch of info with a number of fields for each file we have.  But for 
File # 12345 I only need to paste into 1 field (which is a memo field) 
the info from SP.  This field contains a continuous history of events 
of that file. (And each time I complete a task that I planned on SP it 
becomes an event.)
5. repeat steps 4 and 5 for as many memos as I have to cut and paste.
6.Run thinkDB desktop to synch with the access database.  (It also 
synchs with another access database which works like a calendar but I 
won't explain that. This access database was first developed before MS 
Outlook was available! but works better because everyone in our office 
has access to it and can change it which we need.)
6. Synch my palm again.  This brings the thinkDB database to my palm.


Voila!  I can now read info in thinkDB that has been inputted by me, 
and others at my office.   I can then plan in SP what I have to do 
next in each file -> and link that with ToDo+ as necessary.  I can 
also make notes on research, meetings, court hearings etc. (which I 
need to do away from my office) either in SP (or bring them in to SP 
through links, imports etc.) and then where necessary put it back into 
the office Access database that our firm runs on using the above 
process.

As I said, the ideal would be to eliminate some of the above steps.  
That I think will have to wait...

Now what exactly is your situation - what info do you want to 
integrate between SP and thinkDB.  How many fields do you need to 
import into (I only need to use 1).  What do you need to use thinkDB 
for that you can't use SP for.    If you need to use thinkDB to synch 
with office databases like I do, but use SP then I do not know how 
else to do it easily.  If you use thinkDB as stand alone databases 
then that is different, and why you need to use SP and why you need to 
integrate with thinkDb will also be different.  The answers to these 
questions should give you what you need.

Oh I thought I asked if it was a memo and you responded no... I must have misunderstood your response or something.

Ok so you are doing this: (well I gotta translate it into technical terms for me :->

a. Write case history info as a Shadow outline
b. Export outline to a memo
c. HotSync
d. Load Palm Desktop
e. Load Access
f. Go to memo in Pam Desktop with the exported outline
g. Cut memo
h. Paste memo into Access

I had the order all confused for how you were doing stuff... I was thinking Shadow/thinkDB/Access instead of Shadow/Access/thinkDB

Doesn't the computer guru scream about # 6?

i. run thinkDB desktop
j. some conversion spec is going on here that is not discussed (I am mentioning it here it for completeness)
k. tell thinkDB desktop to save and install the file (mentioned for completeness)

>6. Synch my palm again.  This brings the thinkDB database to my

k. Sync to update the thinkDB database  


>Voila!  I can now read info in thinkDB that has been inputted by me,

I think this was the part that was confusing me... because it makes it sound like people are inputting stuff into thinkDB directly. So what they are doing is inputting data into Access in the "normal" way... ie: just typing directly into Access. You are inputting data by putting it into Shadow and then using the Palm Desktop to grab it and THEN pasting it into Access.

Ok so I think I get it now...

 I can then plan in SP what I have to do  
>next in each file -> and link that with ToDo+ as necessary.

See now I know a lot of people would say.. well why not just put it all in the memopad to start with?! But I know for me, I would rather have it in an outliner because then I can move stuff around more easily.

hmm this stuff could go into Shadow-tips... it is a very interesting way to handle the situation.

>As I said, the ideal would be to eliminate some of the above steps.
> That I think will have to wait...

It would seem that there is no way to automate the process because a human has to pick what Access record to paste the data into. You couldn't just do an import on Access and have it know what record to put your memopad record on. Well I don't know... I am not an expert in Access.. and besides this probably makes no sense to you 

Here is what I am assuming.. say there are 10 clients in the db.. and you want to add some info for Client #3 and Client #7. So you have 2 shadow outlines one for each client. You export them both to the memopad etc. There would seem to be no way for software to know that you wanted memo #1 to get pasted to Client 3 and memo # 2 to get pasted to Client 7.

It could be done by having thinkDB/Access bi-directional syncing going on... but you said the computer guru doesn't want that. But even if you -could- do that, you wouldn't be able to use Shadow and export to a memo because thinkDB has no way of picking the memo up automatically. (let alone putting the memo on the right record). Even if Shadow could somehow talk to thinkDB, that STILL would not help you... because you are not allowed to sync directly to Access.

The only thing I can think of right now that might help... is to use the Shadow Desktop. (I have not used it.) If you could somehow cut a Shadow outline and paste it into Access you could at least skip the export to memo step.

>Now what exactly is your situation - what info do you want to  
>integrate between SP and thinkDB.

Actually, I was just curious as to what your process was because it sounded like something I hadn't heard of before :->

I have hardly used Shadow at all. I have not had time to try it out very much yet. Bonsai just scrambled my outlines again today... I had thought that bug was fixed. Makes me want to try Shadow more.

>  How many fields do you need to  
>import into (I only need to use 1). 

It would be more than one. 

I wouldn't have the problems that you have though because I am just a single user so I can do whatever I want.

My main thing that I would like to do that can't be done.. well at least on Bonsai.. is make a log of what I work on and the time it takes. Bonsai cannot time anything.

So right now I have a Bonsai outline set up, and I write in what I do and the start and stop times.

Then I have a thinkDB database that times it.

But I don't write down all that I do in thinkDB.

I could do like you are doing and export the Bonsai outline and paste it into thinkDB. That would be a good idea.

The problem is that if you export Bonsai stuff it loses the dates. Maybe I could make my own export so that would not happen. (You can define a template in Bonsai.)

Nope not in a work setting.

When I was in a work setting, the supervisor did not approve of my Palm use.

 If you use thinkDB as stand alone

Some of my databases have Access counterparts and some don't.

I will definitely have to think about putting my completed items in my thinkDB database. Right now they are just clogging up the main Bonsai list. I would have exported them to DayNotez but it does not retain all the info contained in the outline when you export to DayNotez.

thanks for taking all the time to explain it to me! I think I finally understand it now.. :-)

My four cents worth...Maybe no Lite wins out in the short run, assuming the focus is on having one with lots of "power" options AND a desktop.  But how long until all the others begin to make a desktop?  Then are you just one of the many "power" choices that divides the market share evenly?  Or do you offer what none seem to stick with, a lite version or the option to remain like a lite version (within the program one can add lots of the additional options, but can also opt not to use such).  Seems it would be easy to allow for such, but maybe the programming is too complicated to allow that option.  Just a thought to keep the broadest base of support for years to come!
Thanks for listening.

FYI re: AN5...The font changes seem worse in AN5.  Now the font is thinner with those OS that allow for High Resolution, making it more of a strain to read.  Then the larger font does not allow individual entries to be larger, but the entire list must be and thus requires scrolling down more often.  No option for the bold font.  Bummer on their "major" upgrade.  Some ok stuff added, but to me not a huge upgrade and the font situation now seems more problematic.
We'll see what happens!

Subject: Keyboard support when using graphical buttons

 
How does one (or can one) keyboard in the "done" or "details" 
commands when the graphical buttons are showing?? In other words, I 
like the graphical buttons, but when I am using the PPK keyboard, 
there don't seem to be any keystroke commands that equate to "done" 
or "details" when viewing a list. When using the text buttons, those 
two buttons are there, of course, and the PPK "done" and "fn-details" 
keys work fine. They don't work when the graphical buttons are 
displayed however. I've looked in the manual twice and am either 
missing the obvious or it isn't there.

	I just picked up a keyboard, so I will be adding some more
keyboard options. Deails, Done, Check/Uncheck toggle, etc will be going in
soon to help in various cases. Stowaway keyboard driver (recent one) has a
mouse pointer that lets you hit some of the buttons pretty easily when you
need to.

Subject: Item in multiple lists? ("item to item link")

 
Would people actually use this? We've nailed down the semantics
awhile back, but upon thinking about it I'm wondering how many people
would have a good use for it.

	Consider; an item in a list could be "sent to" another list (new
option I will add, to save on cut and pasting). Like when importing, I
could add a "link to original" checkbox for the send-to dialog, so when
you send the item to the other list, it remembers where it originally came
from.

	Then a change to it in the other list will change both. OKay, this
sounds neat, but I can see only limited uses for it (but maybe my brain
isn't creative today)

	1) Multi-file filter would depend on this; specify a filter, and
Shadow could scan through all files making a new file  linking to the
originals. Then you could browse the resulting file, delete it, or jump to
the originals. This is useful.

	2) Given resource assignments, you could create a project file,
and then "send to" items to other lists to hold assignments for
individuals or other resource dependancies. OKay, this sounds good, maybe.

	3) Any other uses?

Hi,

Wow, that's amazing! Today I thought to myself: wouldn't it be cool to have item to item 
linking ability... 

That could be just GREAT!
I have several lists with some things in common between them.
For example: I have one list the contains a project's "things to do".
I have another list with things I'm waiting for. This list contains item from several 
projects.
There are items that belong to the project and should be in the project list. However, if 
these items are in a "Waiting for" state, it should also be in the second list.

What a telepathy... :-)

	Yep, this would suit my style of working with Shadow just fine. Now, I have a quite a few File-links between my "Weekly plan" and various projects I'm currently working on. It would be even better to be able to send specific items from each project due the following week to my weekly plan, for instance. I also keep lists of "Maybe someday" ideas. When the time is right for implementation, I can link these items right into my weekly plan as well.

	I re-use my weekly plan file, so for this to be really useful, a few new purge options should also be included. I like to remove all items marked complete from my weekly plan after exporting it to DayNotez for journaling. However, it wouldn't be good if completed, linked Shadow-items started to disappear from say a project plan. Here they are needed for the history and progress, but the weekly plan is designed to focus on only what's important right now. A toggle or preference to delete linked Shadow-items or not might be a solution.

	You mean a separate option from the normal "Deleted linked objects
with item" pref?

	I'm currently expecting to make it so if you delete onside or the
other, then you just get the usual broken-link alert that lets you
sever-all, or let you manually several item by item. So you'd send an item
to your weekly, and then eventually delete it from the weekly.

	A original item will never know if it has been cloned or how many
times, and it will *not* be able to goto its relatives (ie: It has no idea
where or how many exist; it could have 1000 clones for all we know, so it
would be impracticle to track them all. Your unit would bog down after a
few clones..)

	A clone will always know its original item, however, so a clone
can give you a goto option, or a broken link warning, etc.

This feature is really essential.

One obvious use of this would be enhanced ability to use contextual 
lists as recommended in the Getting Things Done (GtD) methodology.  
For instance, you may have lists for ToDos in the office, at the 
computer, or at the phone.  Obviously, there is considerable overlap 
here, so the ability to create multi-list items would greatly 
facilitate such an approach.

There are plenty of folks who have either experimented with, or are 
refugees from, Life Balance and I would guess that contextual ToDo 
lists are one of the main attractions to that software.  Having that 
ability without the unfortunate "fuzzy logic" overhead would be a 
great step for Shadow.

I can think of other potential uses, but suffice it to say that this 
feature would be VERY useful.  PLEASE do it!

NOTE: Please forgive me if this is a repeat post -- my laptop battery 
went dead mid send on my first attempt and I'm not sure if it made it!

Hi Jeff,

Something funky has been happening with items that I sync to the 
desktop, and I'm wondering if it is a known issue, or if I'm doing 
something wrong.

I decided to use Shadow as a grocery list.  It worked really well, 
and I made it through the store in record time despite having my 2-
year old tagging along.  Anyhoo, when I synched it to the desktop, 
checked items were duplicated.  The duplicates were unchecked, and 
reverted to "list type."  I deleted the duplicates on my desktop, but 
they reappeared after hotsynching.

For now, I have unchecked the sync to desktop option....


ps I checked out 2.02 and the filters work as advertised.  Thanks!  
Keep up the good work.

	Remembering that in my implementation, the original (cloned) item
woudl not know about its clones. Deleting the original woudl not do
anythign to the clones, but they would complain about broken link.
Deleting a cloned offspring would have no comment anywhere. Deleting one

	I probably will, since the 2.0 architecture allows for this sort
of thing without too too much work.. but I got to worrying how useful it
would be beyond the above, and how valuable the above would be.

	Duplication should only occur if you change an item on both the
desktop and the handheld, or if you have another computer in the mix.

There is another computer in the mix, but Shadow Desktop is only 
installed on one of them.  Do I need to do something special here?  

Do I need to install the latest version of Shadow Plan on both 
desktops?

	If more than one computer is being synced against, you likely will
see duplicates. ie: Theres isn't a reasonable way to guarantee between 3
machines that data is not being lost, so to preserve and be safe, Shadow
duplicates in times of question. (ie: Given a 3rd computer, you can
nolonger tell if an item is "changed", it is merely "different". So rather
than guess which is changed, we duplicate to preserve both states).

	This sloppy logic only occurs the first sync on a new machine; so
if you make a change, sync to the old machine, then sync to the new
machine (no changes since last machine), then you can sync on the new
machine. Otherwise, if you sync on one machine, then change something, and
sync on a new machine, you'll get duplicates.

	I'll be improving it later but I have to work out some safety
scenarios.. its pretty complex stuff.

Jeff,

Wouldn't the option "Handheld over-writes Desktop" in the conduit help take
care of that 2nd computer?

My laptop is my main computer, and my DeskTop at the office is my secondary
computer (I stop in every couple of weeks.)  The first thing I do at the
office is HotSync with "Handheld over-writes Desktop" (the default.)  If I
do any updates on the desktop, I will HotSync again with "Synchronize Files"
temporarily set.

I have yet to put Shadow DeskTop on my DeskTop because of this situation.
For now, I'll e-mail what I need from the LapTop to the DeskTop.

Thanks...
    ...ed

Don't forget the bug of multiple item types in a list. Like on my shopping

	Duplication woudl not occur unless you have multiple computers in
the mix, or changed on both sides. The only bug in the conduit with
regards to item overridden views is that the view will revert to list's
natural type if it gets synced and editted.

		Yes, because Shadow is quickly becoming one of the core systems of my setup, I would like to keep items here for a number of reasons, mainly tracking. So, deleting a clone should not delete its "parent", imo. Like my previous example, you wouldn't want the completed steps in "Project X, phase 1" to disappear from the Project X file once you delete them all from the weekly plan. You *would* like to get them updated to "Checked" status if you checked the clone, but this is what you mean by "Link to parent", right? Deleting an ordinary Shadow item linked to ToDo or Datebook *should* delete the corresponding item in that database because it reflects a change in my planning.


		>A clone will always know its original item, however, so a clone

		Right - or it could also be used for (as I was afraid of) the ability to kill the original item when it was deleted itself. I now understand you never intended for it to work this way, which is good.

Hope this makes sense - I'm tired :-)

Subject: Delete linked item from datebook when completed?

 
I use ClockPop to show me time and the daily events, both timed and untimed.
It´s very handy to check and re-check on the fly what´s to be done for the 
day and it even saves to need to turn the device off again.

But - I would like to see the events disappear after I checked them
in Shadow. In other words, I have an event in DateBook (standard) created
from the LinkManager in Shadow. And I would like to have this event deleted
when I check it for completion. The only way I see until now is removing
the event manually from DateBook.

Is there a way?

Thanks for your help,

Subject: Error message from Shadow Desktop, HotSync problem, more

 
1.) I just installed the Shadow Desktop program. Worked reasonably 
well for several days until I started to get this error message: 

"Could not open file! Perhaps found not yet supported international 
characters? (Maybe not well formed at line 15)"

Any ideas??

2.) The program started to freeze during the Hotsync process. So, 
based on what I read in this group, I removed the .dll from the Palm 
directory. But how do I repair the problem.

3.) I noticed that when I modified my files on the Desktop program & 
the performed a HotSync the formating was re-set on my handheld 
(m505). The Desktop is incredibly handy for input when I am at the 
office. Also, love being able to print & publish to the web. The 
desktop is critical to my useage.

Thanks!

Yes, you actually get a smaller font with applications enabled to 
take advantage of Clie's HiRes. I also think that large outlines 
would look great on the Clie.

	Off the top of my head, Datebook doesn't do checked/completed
items. DateBk4 adds it as an extension to the Datebook system. Shadow
doesn't support too many program-specific extensions, instead aiming for
standards compliance. I will add program specific stuff when other more
pressing matters are finished, which are good for everyone. (ie: I'm
betting theres a lot of DateBk4+Shadow users, and also Action Names+Shadow
users, but also ToDoPlus+Shadow and dozens of other programs.. and I'm
still sure all of those are dwarfed by the number of people who do not use
a replacement Datebook at all. Heck, what about those using DateBk3
because its built into their Visors for free..)

	If you're relying on a program specific extension to get special
handling in Shadow, it may take a bit, unless its very very easy to
implement.

	Desktop 1.0 doesn't work too well with international characters
(hence the error ;)  International characters are "non-ASCII" really, so
inserting special characters or the like can cause this problem. It will
be remedied in a few weeks hopefully.

	Solution is to not use those special characters right now.

	That advice wasn't given; you can consult the lastsync.txt file to
find the problem XML file; (there is a bug in 1.0 desktop). Just remove
that XML file (or all XML files if you don't care), and sync, and all will
be well.

	You should only have lost view-overrides (having a checklist with
some note or project or cusotm items inside of it, for instance). This too
will be fixed in 1.1.

Yes, the font is smaller but still very readable. The bitmaps of the 
characters are the same as other Palm devices, just displayed with 
very tiny pixels.

Thanks for the support. I would be happy to alpha or beta test any hi-

	Off the top of my head, you can have no progress bars, progress
bars for all, or progress bars for items (supress parents). You want to
suppress bottom level items progress bars.. leaf items. Not yet possible,
but can be added (but prefer not to do it for awhile ;)

Jeff,

I am having duplicated entries too and I am using 2 PCs for syncing.  
One of them with the Shadow conduit, the other without.  I did a 
little experiment to find out what will cause the duplication 
problem.  Let's name the PC with Shadow conduit as PC_A and the one 
without PC_B.

When you sync with PC_A and make changes on the Palm and sync with 
PC_A again, no problem (just like 1 PC syncing).  The problem arises 
when you sync with PC_B first before syncing with PC_A, no matter the 
changes on the Palm is before PC_B sync or after, ie if you change 
record 1, sync with PC_B, change record 2 and then sync with PC_A, 
both records will be duplicated.

I think this is difinitely a bug.  I do not have this problem with 
other conduits when I hotsync with 2 PCs.

	Correct; this is documented and as I described earlier :)

> I think this is difinitely a bug.  I do not have this problem with

	Try this and let me know:

	Sync on PC_A
	Sync on PC_B (ensuring todos are the same on both)
	Change the todo at current location (PC_B, say)
	Sync at that location (PC_B)
	Sync on other location (PC_A)
	What happened to that todo?

	In this case, the todo should duplicate if everyone is following
the rules, since PC_A has the todo with no dirty markings and it is
different than the handheld and PC_B version, which also have no dirty
markings.

	Its pretty complicated; maybe I got it wrong, but the issue is
really not so much when you have 2 computers but when youhave 3 (home,
office, laptop), or more. The conduit has no idea how many computers are
involved,and that number can change (sync at a friends, buy a new laptop,
sync at work when normally you do not, etc).

	Or even simpler case..

	Sync at PC_A
	Chage something
	Sync at PC_A as you head out to work
	Sync at PC_B.

	At PC_B you coudl have:
	1) No dirty flags (no changes shown, but this may not be true)
	2) Some dirty flags; do the changes here clobber tha handheld then
because you changed something?

	(2) offhand you think sure, there were changes. But read the
timing and notice that despite being dirty flags, those changes are older
than the ones you may at home and have no changes shown for. So following
normal logic, you would lose your new changes for old ones.

	For reasons like that, Shadow duplicates. It saves your data.

	I can add timestamps maybe to help out, but it starts to get extra
complicated :)

Jeff,

I tried what you have suggested and the todo is not duplicated, this 
is what I have done:

Sync with PC_A,
Sync with PC_B,
Checked todo in Palm Desktop of PC_B,
Sync with PC_B (after sync, todo is checked on Palm),
Sync with PC_A (after sync, only one todo and it is checked)

I think you've got the logic wrong and I agree with you that it is 
complicated (I am a developer myself).  If I remember correctly, in 
the Conduit Development Kit (CDK), there is a fast sync and slow 
sync.  Slow sync are for situations where the last sync is not with 
the current PC.  You may want to take a closer look.

	I've taken a very close look thanks very much ;) What does happen
in the last two steps? Since there is no dirty flag on the item (you
synced to PC_B), then how is the conduit to know that when you sync to
PC_A it is newer? It must then rely on timestamp.. if so, good on
them. Shadow's conduit doesn't rely on timestamps yet, but I may if it
works out to be correct in all cases. So far I've worked out a few dozen
scenarios where you will get the wrong data some %age of the time, so I've
gone with the 100% safe.

	I'll improve it over time, but must work on international
characters and such first.

	So little time, so much to do :/

I use ClockPop Hack Version 2.7 and the corresponding
ClockPop Skins. 

With ClockPop Skins you have the possibility to
choose the appointments you like to see (but only up to 
4 or 5 I think because of lack of space): timed and
untimed.

And I configured ClockPop Hack that it pops up when
I press the Datebook-Button for a certain amount of
time. If the Device is off when I do this, ClockPop
jumps to live, shows it informations and takes the
device back to sleep again when I release the button.

It´s true, Datebook doesn´t support checked or completed items. Well, I don=

created in Datebook as a link from Shadow (which is already working very wel=

the Datebook. 

That´s what I understand is the difference between a link and a copy.
But that´s not happening, the event stays in Datebook and I have to remove =
it manually.

That perfectly understandable. But maybe something like what I´m looking fo=

Subject: Re: Project management question...

 
Hello,

Remember this suggestion?  Well, here's another (or maybe I'm just 
showing my ignorance of Shadowplan...):
- When I write a project plan, I often have complex dependencies, 
e.g. 
task 5 must be (directly) preceded by tasks 1, 3 and 4
task 4 must be (directly) preceded by task 1
task 3 must also be (directly) preceded by task 2
task 2 must be (directly) preceded by task 1
task 1 has no predecessor.

In a PERT chart, it looks (if you can see it the way I can)like:

  / 4 - - \
1 - 2 - 3 - 5
  \ - - - / 

...with time running along from left to right, of course.  Now, a 
simple 'show next task' filter  doesn't handle this type of project 
well because it doesn't tell me that once I've completed task 1, I 
should get on with tasks 2 & 4, and no others.  

I reckon (IMH and ignorant O) that to make Shadow handle this kinda 
thing, we'd need a field to show each task's predecessor(s), perhaps 
like Microsoft Project.  What d'you think?

Thanks

(Thinking out loud).  ShadowPlan is an outliner, not necessarily 
project management software.  The project diagram shown can be 
imitated by a tree: Task 5 is complete when tasks 3 and 4 are 
complete, and task 3 has subtask 2, which has subtask 1.  I believe 
task 4 can be linked to task 1 as well.  Going back to my 
experiences with other software, including Franklin Quest and Covey, 
is the potentially-powerful feature of "nested tasks" where the 
software remembers that parent tasks cannot be due or completed 
until child tasks are done -- check off one task and the next task
(s) are shown due.

	Set up the "Delete linked object with item" pref (or something
like that). Should be in the Links panel of the 2.0 global prefs. With it
set, todo and datebook linked objects will be removed when you purge them
from Shadow.

	The "next action" filter is in the current alpha/beta, though it

	I've been thinking about this sort of thing for awhile, but it'll
have to wait a bit, till the desktop polishes up a bit (international
characters, maybe the mac version which is 80% ready). I'm goign to add
item to item linking of sorts, which may help tieing into item
relations.. ie: First step item to item linking is to allow you to have
one item in muiltiple lists. But by a similar mechanism, you could relate
items.

	Then we could do sort by relation, and maybe next-step by the
dependancy graph.

	There are various brute force methods nowe; a better method will
be available soon.

	Some options off the top of my head:

	1) Open a new memo in palm desktop, paste in a shadow-memo-import
formatted text, and then after a sync do a memo import on the handheld.

	2) Use a macro to reformat the desktop file into a Shadow XML
minimal file on the desktop, then have Shadow Desktop shove it up to the
handheld. This is actually not too hard.. see below.

	3) Wait for the Shadow Desktop import (which does (2) for you).

	What I've done many times is (2). IF you have a file with (say) 3
items to go to the handheld as a new list, like this:

line 1
line 2
line 3

	Just use a macro to change it into this:

<item><title>line 1</title></item>
<item><title>line 2</title></item>
<item><title>line 3</title></item>

	Then put <ShadowPlanFile> at the top, and </ShadowPlanFile> at the
end.

	Shadow Desktop can send that to the handheld just fine.

	Maybe in 1.1; primary goal is to fix the international character
support, and during testing I may enable drag-and-drop to move items (its
already partially supported, but disabled due to lack of sufficient
testing) for alpha testers. If they can get it all tested and we can get
everythign working, I'll include it.

	Alpha and beta testers are open to the public.

	I worked out some time-stamp scenarios which weren't good, which
is why I did not build it in first off. I'll be revisitng it soon
hopefully as the conduit will be in general improvement phase in a little

	It means that I've not had time to test it much myself, and I

	Alpha and beta are open to the public.
