Answer: D)  Just over 1000

By the way, thank you and the others for the quick response to the 
question about keyboard support.  I'll remind you later about menu 
support.  Wordsmith did a great job of implementing this feature.

I'm starting to use ShadowPlan more and more.  This is a great 
program and you've done a terrific job of supporting it.  A couple 
additional comments/questions:

1.  I'm currently using version 1.4.17 and haven't experienced any of 
the delay problems using the links to addresses or memos with the 
categories that others have related.  I use Action Names as a 
datebook/address replacement.  However, I did notice that the link to 
Action Names for the address book took me to the wrong spot like it 
used to for to-do's.  Wonder if it might be a similar bug.

2.  How difficult would it be to incorporate a similar category 
feature for linking to-dos where you could pick the category to link 
to on an item basis rather than list?  This would really be heaven 
for me.

3.  I know you're already planning on creating the ability to link 
from one files item to an item in a different file.  When this is 
implemented, would you also be able to link the progress bar on an 
item in one list to the progress bar of an item in a second list?   
This would allow for a sort of master list of projects that is linked 
to more detailed lists but could show the overall progress on those 
projects automatically.

Keep up the good work.  With improved keyboard support and the 
desktop application, this is going to be one incredible app! (as if 
it isn't already :)

Subject: Default Color in Outlines

 
Jeff, 

Is there a way to change the default color that we use in our 
outlines?  I know that I can manually set each one but what I'd like 
to do is to set a color, say blue, as the color that everything new 
will be put in as.  In the same vein, is there a way to change the 
color of an existing list without changing each one individually? 

thanks

from boxes, its slowed down a bunch (suporting categories hurts). Just
wantint go make sure its acceptible.

	Yeah, it'll get fixed for 1.5.0.

	That'll be after 1.5.0; its a bit tricky, so I'd rathe not break
anything this close to release :)

	This stuff is down the road (after better desktop support).. we
can fight about it then. Good idea though.. it makes sense.

	Interesting; thereisnt' a current way to change the colour of
everything, without using Hilights (though thats not what you want to do
for this).  You just prefer a different item colour?

	I was thinking of eventually adding a default "foreground" and
"background" colour and the like, but never got to it.

	Does anyoen else need this?

I use color coding quite frequently and consistently in DateBk4 to 
reflect the different types of appointments/todos I have. It gives me 
a great "at a glance" overview of a day, week or month. It would be 
nice if I could get Shadow's color scheme to match the one I already 
use in DateBk4. It's no show stopper for me though.

So if this can be done with little impact to your schedule and 
Shadow's footprint, then yes, it would be really nice to have. If it 
takes significant resources, then I'd place it lower on my priority 
list if I were you.

Roy.

I have asked for this in the past.  What I really think would be 
easiest is (if you have a color palm available) for you to load up 
Khroma, and make sure that Shadow Plan honours the settings in Khroma 
(it currently doesn't).  Once you have that, people can configure the 
basic colors of Shadow Plan just like all their other apps (and for 
free too).

After that point, allowing specific colors in Shadow Plan would 
follow later.

Actually, I've been using Chrome (I don't know what Khroma is) ever 
since my I got my IIIc (now Prism) and Shadow does honor Chrome a 
little -- if you don't use the Col-bg option in Shadow you will get 
the background that you've chosen for your Chrome scheme.  I have a 
very dark background in my Chrome scheme and would like to be able to 
make my text a light color for better visibility.  Also, I would like 
to be able to change the whole outline at once because I often change 
the color scheme (it's just a quick tap or two) depending on what the 
lighting is like where I'm working.  That's why I was asking about 
this option.

	I will have to look up the info for Khroma; I'm so far playing it
pretty safe, in the name of compatability. Doing a lot of colour tricks
with other apps can make it difficult to be compatible on all machines, so
so far I've erred in favour of safety. Colour is very good in Shadow.. but
I agree.. I could do so much more :)

	OKay, heres a plan -- can you guys bring it up again in two weeks
or so, once I've had 1.5.0 out the door, and a little break out of the
way.. and then we can start thinking about colour again. I have a Prism as
well, so colour is my interests too ;)

	You can already set the colour of individual items. (Go to item
details, and look in the bottom right for a solid black box. Hit that to
get a colour picker). We're talking about mroe global defaults.. like
setting the default background colour, text colour, etc.  You can also do
hilights right now.. take a look under the List menu, and hit
Hilight.. great fun :)

How do you move up and down the list with the keyboard?  I have been

from item to item down a list.  This looks like a fantastic app-- but 
I'm 99% sure I'd use my PPK to enter the bulk of the info I put into 
it, and I'm picking up my stylus every time I want to move to another

Nope.  When I enter several lines into an outline, and want to return

With no hacks running, I still can't get the arrow keys to work.  I

I can move an individual item around using Tab/Shift

	The cursor keys allow you to move the selection up and down, and
collapse/expand items. But only if your'e using a beta greater than
1.4.0. If you're on 1.4.0, just wait until tomorrow or Tuesday when I
release 1.5.0..

You were right... I noticed right after I posted my last message that 
there was an earlier message in the list referring to the "latest 
beta version."  On a hunch, I installed it and VOILA! it works.  Even 
with 8 hacks, QuickBits and TornadoV installed, the arrow keys work 
just fine.  What an awesome program.  Looks like I'll be registering 
this one.  :)

And thanks for the help Tamim.  If you hadn't let me know that 
support for arrow keys was now included, I probably wouldn't have 
kept exploring and tried the beta.

No problem, you're very welcome! Glad it worked out for you. 
Actually, I found out the cursor keys work in Shadow by accident! If 
you're a keyboard user, I would also like to HIGHLY recommend 
LaptopHack from Paul Nevai and PointerHack (free). Both of these 
hacks add so much keyboard functionality that you'll barely need to 
touch your stylus again. You can find both hacks on Palmgear.com.

Subject: using Shadow for to dos

 
I registered Shadow today, and want to use it to keep a "master list" 
of projects and todos.  I'd like to be able to selectively put *some* 
Shadow items into my to do app (and in Datebk4), and it looks like 
Shadow's linking is just the ticket.  I think this system would work 
out a bit better if I could quickly and easily determine which of the 
items on my Shadow list have been linked to these apps.  Would it be 
possible to add a filter and/or highlight menu item so that linked 
items could be chosen for those purposes?

One other thought... any chance that an item marked as a "done" 
appointment (not todo) in Datebk4 could then be marked as done in 
Shadow?  And one more, while I'm generating work for Jeff... would it 
be possible to specify a default category for either To Do or Datebk4 
links?

Thanks in advance.  This is an awesome program as is-- hope these 
feature requests don't sound too demanding coming from a newbie. :)

	I will be (eventually) adding a customizable filter screen, so you
can whatever you like. For now, turning on the link arrow column will
quickly let you see if anitem has any links from it, and turning on the
todo-link column gives you a quick way to see, disable, enable todo links.

> One other thought... any chance that an item marked as a "done" 
> appointment (not todo) in Datebk4 could then be marked as done in

	A shadow item linked to todo or datebook will become checked if
you check the corresponding item in the todo/datebook,a nd vice
versa. Thats what the link is for ;)

> be possible to specify a default category for either To Do or Datebk4 
> links?

	1.5.0 allows you to set a default todo link category; the datebook
doesn't have categories (though datebk4 allows them. I'll support that
later)

The *to do* items in Datebk4 that are marked complete do show up as 
complete in Shadow... but *appointments*?  (marking appts. as "done" 
is another feature of Datebk4 that isn't in the original Datebook 
app.)  When I mark an appointment in Datebk4 as "done", either by 
checking the appropriate box in the Datebk4 appt. details box or by 
swiping left to right through the time of the appointment, it doesn't 
seem to do anything to the linked Shadow item.  Am I doing something 
wrong?  Wouldn't be the first time.  :)

	Ahh; Currently, Shadow works very well with the todo and datebook
databases, but I don't do much in the way of other-peoples-extensions,
since they're nonstandard and only useful to groups of people. ie: A lot
of users are DateBk4, DateBk3, DateBookPlus, Action Names, and other app
users, though DB4 and AN definitely have the majority. So once things are
more or less "done" in Shadow, I'll add more specifics for DB4.. but it
seems to me to do things foreveryone first, and then go into working on
little things later. But we'll see.. (I like DB4 icons :)

	You can already set the colour of individual items. (Go to item
details, and look in the bottom right for a solid black box. Hit that to
get a colour picker). We're talking about mroe global defaults.. like
setting the default background colour, text colour, etc.  You can also do
hilights right now.. take a look under the List menu, and hit
Hilight.. great fun :)

	In Link Manager, you add a link, and then on the link list in
shadow, it shows the wrong address? OR do you mean after you do a goto to
Action Names it goes to the wrong one?

Subject: Re: keyboard support

 
May I make a pitch for a couple more tweaks to the keyboard support?  

I'd like to have one item of an outine selected when I open it (top 
line maybe?).  As is, when I use my keyboard, I have to tap on "open" 
and then tap on a line to "wake up" use of the arrow keys.

I've also found that if I have more than one screen of info in an 
outline and the last item has >1 line, scrolling to the bottom does 
not reveal the whole item-- only the top line.  Does the same using 
the menu "next item" command.

I've also found that when I use arrow keys to scroll back up to the 
top the whole outline suddenly disappears when I get to the top.  The 
screen gets redrawn if I use "page down."

I'd bet this is a deliberate choice, but would it be possible to at 
least allow users the option to not have the details screen opened up 
by default when one types a new item in an outline?  I'd love to just 
be able to see the item as it appears on the outline while I'm typing 
it... maybe then a simple down arrow or "done" would allow one to 
move to another point in the outline.  I realize that some probably 
always set dates or numbering when entering items, but I rarely do.

Finally, I'd like to see a way (aside from LapTopHack and/or 
PointerHack) to select and open an outline from the list of all 
outlines.

Despite the fact that I've developed the fine art of finding such 
things (making work for developers), I love this program.  It has 
already become the center of my schedule planning-- I've mapped a 
hardware button to it (high praise indeed from a long-time Palm 
user).  I'm not offended if you ignore my suggestions-- it is your 
baby and you've done an incredible job so far.  :)

and reveal more of the information.

	Does this only happen with the keyboard scroll up, then?

	I'll be adding this sort of thing "eventually"; It was a choice I
made up front, so that I could capture more data about an item right from
the onset. I always assumed people would enter less often than they would
read the data (bad assumption!), so the capture dialog made sense.
Changing it now is lots of work,s ince it changes the UI -- tapping on an
item.. shoudl it select it, or put a cursor in it? I am planning on making
this a pref in the future.. since it suits two different sets of people
very well -- task managers will likely want the details behaviour as it is
now, and journalists or meeting note stakers amy likely want to just skip
the details screen and type away..

	No no, from day one I've encouraged suggestions. I don't make the
program for me alone, so why shoudl I ony listen to my thoughts? It is
built by request for everyone. This is my personal opinion as a user and a
developer, and I cannot understand why more developers don't do the same..

No, I just got it to repeatedly happen with the "previous item" menu 
command.  Happens if I have several screens of data, and I move down 
the outline so that I'm one screen away from the top of the outline 
(that is, the top lines are not visible).  I then select the top item 
showing on the screen, and tap "previous item" or up arrow from the 
keyboard.  My screen goes blank.  Only appears to happen when you are 
one screenful away from the top.

I'd love to be able to start the program, see my list of outlines, 
use the arrow keys to move up and down that list and press "return" 
to open the one I want (a la SmartDoc).  I currently have to both tap 
on my selection with the stylus and then tap on "open."

I wish more developers did.  :)  People tend to gravitate to those 
who listen... like Steuart Dewar (Datebk4) and Paul Nevai (LapTopHack 
and pEdit).  With any luck, the market will reward you guys.  I just 
don't want to come across as believing that my vision is the correct 
one or most popular, because I'm certain that there are differences.  
In fact I think one of the strongest features of Shadow is the 
ability of the end user to customize it to different needs.  I *love* 
options!

	Strange; so essentially, go to top of list, hit page down button,
hit the up arrow and woof? Weird.

	I have a simple philosophy; if someone makes a suggestion I like,
and it doesn't contradict existing stuff, I put it in. If people disagree
with wat I think, and they vote me out, I do it. Since no one has made
some of these suggestions, or the ones that've been made before and I've
not put in yet.. well, they simply have to go in :)

	heh. The trick is keeping them reasonably organize.d I think
Shadow is one of the most customizable apps ever. But its still (hopefully
;) pretty easy for people to use.. just close your eyes an dhit "OK" ;)

I like to do this through announce, but I keep finding lots of people in
shadow-discuss but not in shadow-test.. so my apologies for the spam.

There are now two editions of Shadow Plan -- a version for everyone
(Windows, Mac, Unix, you name it), and a version enhanced for Windows
users.

Generic Edition:
http://www.codejedi.com/shadowplan/binaries/shadow150gen.zip

Windows Enhanced Edition:
http://www.codejedi.com/shadowplan/binaries/shadow150win.zip

This release features improvements all over the place, to make your time
in Shadow Plan more valuable and productive. Get it while its hot :)

An extract from the WhatsNew follows.

		jeff

Shadow Plan 1.5.0
-----------------

Lots happening in this lastest release of Shadow Plan! Be sure to keep a
watchful eye on your download sites or my website, as I'm hoping to
release some Windows tools soon to translate your Shadow Plan files into
RTF, HTML, and other useful formats!

Shadow Plan 1.5.0 is another huge stride forward for Palm outliners and
task managers. You can now link to the Address Book and MemoPad in
addition to the ToDo and Datebook as before. You can archive old items as
you delete them, if you like. Many facets of the application have been
tuned to make your life easier -- Palm global Find is supported, exports
have been improved, group management is easier. For Windows users, a first
step towards desktop support is included in the Windows Enhanced Edition
-- a one way backup conduit that writes its files in the industry standard
XML format. Keep your eyes open for tools to translate the XML into RTF,
HTML, and other useful formats making sharing and printing your data very
easy!

NEW! Windows backup conduit!

NEW! Killer linking! Link to address book and memopad, and expand and
  collapse address and memo links underneath an item right onscreen! Now
  you can appoint people to tasks, easily illustrate who attended a
  meeting or easily identify locations of tasks (or anything else you can
  think of doing!) Set a program to use for jumping to these links. Have
as
  many links on an item as you like!

NEW! Global Find now supported! (Searching through all your Shadow files
  at once now works, and all those nifty hacks that work with Find will be
  happy!)

NEW! Make new items from existing todo and datebook items! Easily allows
  you to create items on your desktop or from other applications, and then
  bring them in as linked (or unlinked) Shadow task items!

NEW! More list-specific options -- autolink all new items to todo, and set
  todo linking category, among other things!

NEW! Archive your items as you delete them! If you don't wish to forget
  an item forever, just archive it! They will show up in a list called
  __ARCHIVE__ in Unfiled. You can edit this list to your desires, too!

NEW! Automaticlly saves your changes if you exit Shadow within Details
  type windows.

NEW! Drag and drop should help you more with its visual hints!

NEW! Export to DOC! (and soon Import from DOC, too!). Use any of the
  normal exporting formats, too. This should let you communicate
effectively
  with palm word processors, and allows you to get your data to the
  desktop that much easier!

NEW! Can now "goto" links in Action Names! (AN used to go to wrong one,
  due to the way it works)

NEW! Better keyboard and button support -- some new and also more sensible
  shortcuts, more hardware scroll button support, etc. Arrows will move
  the selection point up and down, or collapse/expand items

NEW! Open database and XML formats! Your file operations can be a little
  faster (after a few uses) in this version; in the future they will be
  much faster. Further, other developers are welcome to link to and work
  with Shadow Plan files. Maybe more wonderful tools will pop up from
  others?

NEW! General bugfixes; no more looping display on long lists; demotion and
  promotion now move the item to smarter more useful locations in the
  sublevels and much much more!

I've probably forgotten things, too :)

Subject: Luck? *sigh* Let me know how it goes with 1.5.0..

 
Looks like 1.5.0 is so far a pretty good and solid release.

	I think 1.5.0 may have found a compiler bug. The Address linking
works well in All on all tested machines, but I think on some machines the
non-All may just find no matches and show an empty list (thats the
compiler bug -- very odd.) One of these days I'll send my list of issues
to CodeWarrior :/

	So if you have this issue.. just use All for now for Addresses
:) Anyway, so be it -- I'm taking a few days vacation. I'm burnt out
bad :P

	Overall, I think 1.5.0 is a pretty good and solid release. Theres
a few snags, but I just couldn't commit an extra 30hour a week to it for
the last couple weeks.. such is life. I'll put out a 1.5.5 soon, with some
more keyboard support, some fixes for whatever folks find in 1.5.0, and
such. Gotta keep everyone on their toes :)

	I'll have to check the manual, but here are the rules: If you
check a child off, and the whole sublevel becomes complete, the parent is
also checked (which can cause its parent to be checked, and so on, as
levels complete). If you have two items in a sublevel, and check one of
them, the parent wont' check.. its only on completing a level this
happens.

	There is a list option in Shadow Plan 1.5.0 to allow you to turn
off some of these automatic behaviours. If you activate that option
("Suppress autocheck"), then you can check and uncheck things to your
hearts content..

	Sorry, I'm in a super rush right now :)

	From day one, a Mac Enhanced release is planned. It will lag the
Windows one not due to favouritism (I'm a unix guy ;), but due to
difficulty in getting a development platform (ie: I don't have a Mac, and
I need a pretty decent one that can run OS9 and OSX I think..). So if you

Subject: WOW! plus wish list...

 
I went from 1.4.0 to 1.5 last night (being a new user I didn't try 
any of the alphas or betas). I LOVE the todo link improvements. The 
ability to set a default category and auto-link in specofic lists is 
terrific. And being able to select an existing todo and back-link it 
to Shadow is a real plus. I can't believe that only 2 weeks ago, I 
almost dismissed Shadow as a viable product for me! The more I use 
it, the more powerful it gets. Oh no - am I becoming one of those 
Shadow fanatics????

Now for my wish list - I like the option to suppress title word wrap. 
But sometimes I want it on, to see the entire entries, and sometimes 
I want it off, to see a more concise list. I have to select Menu-
>List->Preferences->Opt->Suppress title word wrap. Could that option 
be toggled on/off with a command key? Or at least with a top menu 
pick.

My second request is probably more of a challenge. I use Datebk4 
icons and bold fonts extensively. Datebk4 stores that info in a note 
but does not display a note icon for those todos since it knows that 
the icon info is the only thing in the note. However, Shadow does not 
know that there is only icon info so when I expand all memos, I see 
all the icon jibberish for any linked items that have icons in 
Datebk4 and the screen looks pretty messy. Any way to hide those 
notes?

Thanks for a GREAT product, Jeff. Keep up the good work.

Yes! Came in handy just this morning...works nicely.

It also gave me an opportunity to comment on the "pretty" formatting. Would
it be possible to have an extra space/CR before the second level items?

In my example below, the second level items are "Colic and crying",
"Emotional sensitivity", and "Fighting and sharing". An extra space would
help quickly distinquish between the previous third level item and the
second level item.

Hmmm....

1. Tried disabling all hacks, then deleting links : NO PROBLEM
2. Reinstalled hacks one at a time: NO PROBLEM
3. Installed all hacks: NO PROBLEM

Well, that seemed to do the trick - sorry for the panic! I wonder what was

Subject: ToDo Completion Date

 
I'm a new (and totally impressed) user to ShadowPlan. I just
downloaded 1.5 and am getting ready to replace my 'ToDo List' with
ShadowPlan.

I have 'Record Completion Date' set to Yes in my ToDo Preferences.
This way the due date (finish date) is changed to the date when I
check the item off as complete.

When I create a ToDo in Shadow, link it to my ToDo list and then check
the item as 'complete' in Shadow, the due date/finish date does not
get set to the current date. If I create at ToDo in Shadow, link it,
and mark it as complete from my ToDo list, the date does updated to
the current date (this is my current work-around).

Did I miss one of the incredibly flexible features somewhere?

Thanks!

Sorry if this is a duplicate - I'm not sure it got out on my first try:

I'm a new user just trying to get started.  In the manual, section called

Mary Ann,

If an item has multiple children, then checking off one child as 
"done" should not mark the parent as done.  For example, I have an 
item with 2 children.  When I mark one of them as done, the box for 
the parent shows that the parent is half completed.

If, however, both of the children are complete, the parent SHOULD be 
marked as complete (since all subtasks are finished).

If what you are getting deviates from this, I'm not sure how to 
explain it.  I just double checked before posting this message, and 
Shadow seems to work exactly as it should on this score.

I am thrilled to see the new feature of 'New From...' that imports from the

datebook tab, but the list is empty.  It tap 'pick week' and choose this
week which is loaded with events, but still nothing in the list.  None of my
private entries are hidden, so what gives?  Also, if I do 'New from...' and
scroll through todos, I only see a few done todos from the previous days and
only 1 or 2 incomplete todos when I know there are at least 20 current todos
on my list right now.  Anyone else experiencing this?  I am using Shadow 1.5

Greetings,

I just started playing around with the new version and its File 
Linking capability.  I set up a file link from a task in my main file 
to the sub task in the linked file.  I can follow this link
downstream 
(from the task to the subtask) just fine.  I'm wondering if there's a 
way to go directly back (upstream) from the subtask to the main task 
file.  So far, I can only get back by going back to the main file
list.  Is there another way?  Thanks for any guidance.

there's no way built into Shadow, but a lot of us use a hack like McPhling,
Switchhack, or Launch em ap hack to go "back and forth" between apps.

sorry as soon as I sent this I realized that this would not work for going
back and forth between files within Shadow.

What I have done is to physically set a "back link" to the original file (an
item named "Back to ___") if this is a function that I would be using often.

Hi Jeff,

First off, if I hear a response to this message in the new couple of 
days, I'll be upset 'cause you're supposed to be taking a couple of 
days off! But when you DO get back, I just ran into a little anomaly. 
When you link to an address and you pick the application you want to 
use, it only works for the first time. For example, I use eyecontact 
as my address application and when I link to a contact to it and then 
click on the link in Shadow, it works properly and goes to Eyecontact 
and brings up the right contact. The second time I use the link, it 
defaults back to the standard Palm address app. Can't figure out why.

Hi, 
Another recently 'converted' fan of shadow. Just trying out the latest version, but can't seem to get the link to address/memo feature working. When I go to the link menu and press 'add' it begins to show a list of addresses and then the dreaded words 'fatal error' come up and the visor needs to be reset. I understand (from reading the manual!!) that a sub-menu should come up after pressing the 'add' a link button, with a choice of adding either memos or addresses (as well as an option to choose the default address/memo programme)? That never appears on my machine. I've disabled all my hacks and tried, but still no luck. Anyone got any ideas???

Here are the steps I follow. It hasn't crashed on me so I hope that 
it works for you:

1. Create a list item or click on an existing list item
2. Click on the Link button
3. A pop-up dialog box will show up. Click on the Add button
4. You should get the Link Add window. There are two buttons on the 
top, Address and Memo, Address will most likely be highlighted. From 
the Category, select the category you want and it will only list 
people in your address book under this category
4. Click on the person's name you want and click ok
5. Click OK on the next dialog
6. Click OK to return to the list
7. You should now have a link to the contact

I really don't know why it crashes on you, it really shouldn't. Have 
you been following the same above steps?

Thanks for the steps below. I have been following these. Problem is between
steps 2 and 3. No pop-up dialog box shows up - it immediately begins to
import (what looks like a list of addresses) but very quickly goes to the
'fatal error' message!
It obviously looks like it must have something to do with my machine if
others are not experiencing the same problem (although I have diabled all my
hacks) I'll investigate further.
