With this new release, it would be interesting to know how some of 
you are using all this neat features like tags, custom views, etc, 
etc.

Also does anybody set tags as names, I'm curious to see some examples
(Tormod), it seem like a very powerful feature for project planning 
and the likes

TIA

	Yep; See the Ref Guide for some example ideas for tags, gleaned
from my personal use, from observing the alpha testers, and from out in
space.

	I use a few names as tags, and states mostly (Active, Funded,
On-hold, Waiting-On, etc). So I flag a project as Active and Funded, and
then filter for funded, and/or active, fairly commonly. I also put peoples
names in there (some as address links, some as tags, as I've not moved
everythign to tags yet), and use filters to obtain lists by person.

No tips just yet...but I wanted to say after having a good sniff around in the app 
and the manual (first time since v1.5), this is one hell of a killer app! Nice and 
flexible. Who thought an outliner would do so much?

Even the external card handling is smooth...

These are EXACTLY the features, especially tags, that I'd been hoping 
would be added to Shadow!!!  I've always wanted a way to keep a 
record of my activities and be able to sort/filter it based on names, 
activities, subjects etc.  2.5 blows any other app away!!!

Yes, until I upgrade my Palm to one with OS4.0 I'm using names as 
tags, but I'd prefer just to link to their address book entries and 
filter by address links.  Still, the tag is just a useful (I just 
hate doubling up by linking both to the address book and a tag....)

Subject: Moving To Do's forward..

 
Not strictly Shadow related, but part of the whole PDA
experience..

	I do keep ToDo's. They often come out of Shadow, but often they do
not.. just ad-hoc todos I whip up, and don't want them brought into
Shadow. (I keep misc household To Do's just as flat simple todos.
Auto-impoirting them into Shadow woudl be fine, but really, it would be no
value add, so I don't). I know, thats blasphemous coming from me, but its
true.. I'm lazy ;)

	Anyway, I look at "today" and "future" todos, but mostly
Today's. (I barely use ToDo's at all, but I use my datebook app and like
to just see what I've got to do in terms of To Dos, which are my lower
priority but need to do items).

	As such..

	I always move my late To Do's forward a day or two when I'm not
going to do them. At the end of the week I go back and bump things I've
missed or need to look at, etc, to a later time.

	This is lame, but its what a tonne of people do ;)

	I'm tempted to write a tool which pushes dated unfinished ToDo's
up to the current day. Or maybe prefs.. bump them up one day (and have it
run each day), or bump by one week (so they go to the same day next week).

	I could build it so it automatically runs each night, so that
midnight comes and boom, all your todos move up a day to show in the
current day. (That sort of thing, anwyay).

	I know DateBk5 can do this, but for Datebook, Datebk+, AN, and
other users ,this could be a usefull mini-tool.

	Is this already out there anywhere?

	Just something to remove one step fo my days tasks :)

NOTE: These are untested; I've not had the time to go through and
check these files (nor do I own iSilo, for instance).

	I have received 4 alternative format manuals. I'll also add a
HandStory clip in a minute...

	See here:
http://www.codejedi.com/shadowplan/downloads.html

	Currently there are: Acrobat PDF version, iSilo, Palm DOC, and
Plucker versions. I'll be adding a HandStory clip pdb in a moment.

	Please let me know which ones work for you; I opened the Acrobat
one on my desktop and it was fine there.

	Looks almost what I want; my thought was to make a job that runs
automatically eah day, to save you having to invoke it all the time
(without having to assign it a button..) I'll give it a shot though.

Jeff:  there are a couple of unclosed HTML comment fields in the reference 
manual that can mess up some browsers.  IE seems to process them fine: I 
only noticed because I used ISilo to dump it to my palm, and it just 
truncated the document.  Just search for comment tags and you'll find them.

2.5 is very cool, by the way.  I'll let you take a deep breath before 
making requests for the desktop version...

Checked To Do Roll; almost good, but bad :) It apologizes many
times for being slow, but god only knows how it coudl be so slow.. moving
a few hundreds items taking a couple of minutes by their estimates? They
must be doing somethign seriously wrong :/

	Ita also very naive; it allows you to "pass through" to only 3
applications (built in ToDo, for instance, but not a user definable To Do
application). More importantly, they were clueless to have gone throgh so
many revisions in this way. If they claim its usefull for users of AN and
such, why didn't it occur to them to pass through to AN?

	This sort of thinking suggests some lack of clue and lack of
working towards the actual goal of solving peoples problems.. so I'm
afraid to use it. What other horrors lurk in there ;)

	They're removed in the online version of the manual. Thats not the
problem with IE though :/

	heh.

	Pretty quiet after the 2.5 release though; I thought there'd be a
big explosion of gabbing. So either I'm very lucky (no explosion in my
suport box), or people are still downloading it ;)

My post should have read that I cannot afford the time being seen

convenient for me to have a paper copy.  (This is the trouble with 
sneaking message board time at work.)  So, although the web-based

study the features properly.

	I'll likely clean up the file a little to make it easier to print
for next update; the problems that make it trouble to print have been
there since day one a year or so ago, without me finding out about them
:) (Obviously we just passe dinto the threshold where people want to print
the manual, whereas a year ago, no one bothered ;)

	But I'm tempted to make alittle side program that does it. Set
itself up with an alarm that goes off once a day at 4am, and when it
receives the alarm it just moves ahead old To Do's instead of making an
alarm. We'll see :)

	No sorries :) You mentioned it out of goodness, I checked it out,
got wary, and posted a response for the next person so they'd know my

The earlier beta pre-empted it maybe?  I am still working my way 
through the manual and the features and in the processes discovering 
features that were there already that I didn't realise were there.

I've been using shadow for about 4 months now and I'm only beginning 
to appreciate how good it really is.

BTW, I'm still having the problem with the broken views on sync, I'm 
at a loss as to what to do.  I've checked everything that I could 
think of and everything seems fine, but I think I will need a hand 
with it.  I'm pretty sure it's not shadow, maybe one of the other 
apps is doing something.

	Do you lose other list settings, or just the View?

Just the view, I did no have any custom filters set on the lists at 
the time and where I did, I didn't notice any other obvious 
differences, but I did not really test for filters.  I've set up two 
views:

Job - checkbox, progress bar, link arrow column, tag column (wide) 
and suppress note icon.

Task (children of job) - checkbox, link arrow column, tag column 
(wide)

List preference is set to whatever, some are custom, some are task, 
some checklist, it doesn't seem to make a difference.

If the list pref "sync" option is ticked, the items that display tags 
end up with a broken view and just display the text of the items 
after the sync is performed.  I've not looked for any filter settings 
being lost.

If it's not ticked, the items retain the view that was applied to it.

At this stage, I'm inclined to back up the unit, do a hard reset, 
uninstall all the handheld software on the pc and start again.

	Oh wait, you mean you're losing the view of item overrides, not
the list itself. So after a sync, the overrides become broken and display
as checklists.

	Never do that! Thats far too much work.

	If something unexpected is happening, its probably a bug.

	I'll have to look into it; its possible the conduit is borking the
view overrides for saved custom views (not for lists, just for item
overrides). In which case I'll make a patched conduit ASAP and get that
out there.

Subject: How to view only items that have no siblings?

 
I'm new to the program but have read the manual and 
experimented extensively.

Question: is there a way to view (or sort / filter / other?) so that 
only the items that have no subtasks appear?

The right-most sub-item are my actual next actions, and it would 
be nice to just see those rather than also see all the parents 
above them.  Is there a way to do that?

I thought I'd filter level >= 3, but that still gave me levels 1 and 2 if 
there was a level 3 or more.  Any thoughts on how to elimiate all 
parants when viewing?

Thx in advance.  Enjoying so far!

Roy.

yes, checklists with no bubbles, no numbers, no link column, nothing, 
just text, and then I have to go into each individual item and change 
it back.  The tags haven't been affected, they reappear once I change 
the view, I can't remember if the item level was affected.  I think 
it was.

It can be good for the soul :)  I was thinking that maybe Hotsync 
might be doing something crazy, but I don't really understand the 
sync part that well and virtually rely on the installation programs.  
I don't have that many apps on the unit and I have organised the 
subdirectories on the pc so that I can reinstall prc files 
efficiently.  But, I will hold off doing it unless I get really bored 
on the weekend.  I'll just untick the sync option on the lists that I 
use the views on.

Like you said, it's only happening to me and that worries me because 
it could be something I'm doing or something that I've done :(  I

Subject: Hotsync-Crash with Shadow 2.5.0

 
Hi,

I downloaded Shadow 2.5.0 yesterday and started experimenting with ags
and Filters and stuff. I added some tags to a list as well as some
other items.

When I hotsync'd this morning, hotsync hang at "Synchronizing Shadow".
After 10 minutes I canceled the hotsync on both sides, but there still
was no reaction. After another 2 minutes, I performed a soft reset on
my palm. Result: The list in Shadow was truncated to 2 items from
formerly about 20.

I erased the list, then hotsync worked again and I still had my old
version on the desktop. Unfortunately, I can't give you the list that
went wrong, as it got erased...

Is there a problem with tags? I still have desktop version 1.1.0 ...

Oh, I am running a (German) Palm IIIc with 3.5.3, Desktop 4.0.1
(german), and Windows 2000.

Greetings,

Thilo

	Nope; I built the engine believing that lowerr items had no
meaning without their parents. I can add it, but I don't get a lot of
requests for it, and its sort of an ugly thing to build.

	ie: Most lists are of this form..

Project A
	- Research
Project B
	- Research

	So "Research" alone has no context.

	However, you would counter argue that "Research" alone triggers
what you need to do.

	We'll see in the future :)

	No, thats a rare old bug in the conduit unrelated to 2.5; that
(and another; there are two main annoying but reasonably rare bugs in the
conduit) are the main drive behind a tonne of work about to go into the
conduit. Fortunately, the issues aren't super-bad as you can always
restore from Shadows various backups as you did. I'm sorry for your
issue.. we'll track it down!

Subject: Re: How to view only items that have no siblings?

 
Further thougts/question (re: why and possible how to see only 
lowest level items)

In my system, the lowest level (no further siblings) are the actual  
next action items.  I can understand "call sue" or "deposit 
checks" w/o seeing the higher level categories, project titles and 
sub-project titles.  Having those higher level categories helps 
me keep all the tasks organized in a nice visual way that's easy 
to navigate when I need it, but being able to see just the next 
action lets me see the greatest number of next actions possible 
given the small screen size.

I wonder if two linked files could get me pretty close? - one for 
the project lists, and the other for actual doable next action?   I 
need to spend some more time playing w/ the link function to 
see if this is a viable approach.  Any ideas?

(By the way - in looking at past messages - there was someone 
who wanted a view that auto expands to show all sub-
categories.  I think s/he was after a related issue - the desire to 
see the next actions more easily.  At the end of the day - I really 
need to focus on doing my next action.  I find I like to keep my 
outline generally fully compressed, for easy navigation, but when 
i actually want to look at my action items I would need everything 
to be fully expanded.  I think the zoom buttons probably 
accomplish this specific issue.)

Beautiful application!  Thx for any further suggestions.

Roy

I think the easiest way to do this would be to link them to the ToDo
database and use that as your flat view of tasks. I know you lose context
this way, but it seems that you don't really need context if you're trying
to eliminate parents. The note on the ToDo could show you the context, but
that's extra taps. Just an idea.

The crunch here is how hard you're tied to the "no siblings" way of doing
it. If you have a bunch of projects with defined steps, you *could* list
the related actions for each project as siblings and apply the "Next step
only" filter. Check one off and the first sibling below automatically
becomes the visible "next action". This hides all those steps that comes
after the "next action", so you make good use of the limited screen. You'd
have to adjust your system a little though, but it *is* very GtD'ish. Oh
well, just my 2 c.

	Thats a nil-creation date. As in "unknown". I think imported items

	I'm confused. The desktop files are the 160 XML files. You remove
them.. well, they're not going to be there to sync. They'll download fresh
form the handheld and be recreated.

You do indeed have the option to plonk when you wish. I mentioned

Todo's to change. Since I don't have 100 Todo's to move, I couldn't

Subject: Linking to a filtered list

 
I have a Shadow list called @Agenda, which has "@Agenda" as its first 
line.  I've filtered the list to hide completed items.

Using ShadowLinkHack, I've linked/created an undated Todo in DateBk5 
called @Agenda.  When I go into the todo's note and double click on 
the word "shadow," it brings me into the @Agenda list.  However, it 
leaves me somewhere in the middle of the list (not on the top line), 
and the list also appears without any filters.

If I save the list and enter Shadow either through the application 
screen or (third) button on the Palm, I can go into a filtered 
version of the list.  The problem only occurs when using the link 
from DateBk5.  I also encountered this problem using LinkerHack.

Any thoughts?

Subject: Setting prefs for addr/memo linking?

 
Hi all!

What a wonderful piece of engineering the new version is! Now I just
have to make my mind up how to use the tags...

Even though I've been using Shadow for quite a while, I just
discovered the possibility to link to memos (slow to catch on...). This lets me 
have easy access to a projects "infofile" stored in a memo, while I use 
Shadow to organize all Next Actions (love the Next Action Only-filter - keeps
me from feeling overwhelmed!)

But.. is there a way to set a preset preference for which Memo-app to
link to? 

I use MemoPLUS and would like to have memo-links opened in MemoPLUS 
instead of the built-in memo app. Of course I can change what app to
use in the "Set program" - but it doesn't seem to "stick", making me having
to set it in every new link.

Haven't started using the address linking yet, but I guess there's
the same problem with address linking? (I'm using PopUp Names).

Thx again for a great app!

I believe Shadow will unfilter and unzoom any list when you jump into it
from a link, whether you use LinkerHack, MegaWiki, or ShadowLink.  The
reason being the item you're jumping to should be always visible and Shadow
ensures that by removing any filters or zooms.

If you just want to jump to the top of the list and not to the specific
item, uncheck 'Support ShadowLinkHack' in Link Preferences.  This way Shadow
won't write the item uniqueIDs and ShadowLink would jump to only the top of
the list.  Regardless, Shadow will still unfilter and unzoom the jump-to
list.

Sure there is :-)

In Link Manager, choose "Add" and select the "Memo" button at the top. Now,
in the lower right corner you have a button called "Set program". Hit this
and you can choose what program you want your memos to open in. Mine opens
in MemoLeaf without any problems. I still have a problem getting my
contacts to open in ActionNames though, so these I just open in the
built-in address book. (ActionNames opens a seemingly random recurring
event instead. This problem is probably on the AN-side of the equation.) I
don't have PopUpNames, but just test it and see if it works.

Thanks Tormod (sunny today in Sthlm isn't it?!)

But it doesn't quite work for me though... I can set the prefered app for the 
current link, and it seems to work for the next link I make if I just set the 
program in the link manager and then Cancel.

But it doesn't "stick" so all new links I make use the set program.

(Just discovered that since PopUpNames is a hack, you can't choose it in the

Hmmm... I don't have this problem. My choices seem to stick until I change
them by going trough that "Set program" thing again. Sorry, I'm fresh out
of ideas here.


>(Just discovered that since PopUpNames is a hack, you can't

Nah, I was afraid of that. Hacks are launched in a different way than "real
apps" I think, so that's probably the reason for it. However, I feel that
the link to the built-in Address app works well in a Shadow context. If I
follow a link to a person, I basically just want to see his/her contact
details, so for me it isn't an issue. It depends on how you use that info,
I guess...

How does it not "stick"?  You should only need to set it once and jumping to
a memo link should always bring you to MemoPLUS.  It does remember what you
set even though tapping 'Set Program' doesn't hi-light the currently chosen
value.  If by not sticking you mean some of the memo links jump to MemoPLUS
and others don't, then something is definitely wrong and I don't know the
answer.

That's exactly what it does: some jump to Memo+ and some don't. Setting 
Memo+ as the program for memo links doesn't "stick" - seems to reset to the 
standard built-in Memo app for the next link.

Tried disabling the McPhling hack, but it didn't change anything.

I'm having trouble scrolling my lists; using the scroll arrows and scrolling on

on my mac - clicking/tapping above/below the inidcator in the scroll list 
thinking that will scroll one screen up/down. Which it does on my powerbook, 
but of course not in Shadow.

I'm not after that exact functionality (though I think it would be neat...), what 
I'm looking for is a way to scroll one screen length at a time somehow.

Is that already possible and I've missed it, or is it perhaps a candidate for 
som future version?

Wild shots in the dark here...

Do you have either ShadowPlan or Memo+ on an expansion card?

Perhaps if you provide details of your configuration -- handheld model,
PalmOS version, hacks, etc. -- the group or Jeff can figure out what's going
on.

PUN can be used with an address link - you need to install the 
Startnames.prc application that comes with it - this is an app which 
launches the hack so it can be used in linking programs such as 
Shadow or Datebk5.

However, the downloadable version of PUN (v1.2) doesn't support 
the 'Goto Address' function so jumping to a link will always show the 
first name in the list.  You need to e-mail the author to get v1.2.6 
which fixes this.  Take a look at www.benc.hr

Subject: Ideas for 2.5+

 
I have been playing with the betas of 2.5 for the past few weeks and 
have become immeresed in playing with tagging, filtering, and making 
views.  

The product is a great evolving one and it is great that Jeff 
welcomes, solicts, and works with suggestions.  The mark of a true 
developer that excels.

Among other uses I am using SP for my ToDo list - mapped to the ToDo 
button - I don't have any use for the Palm version.  

Been using some of the GTD approach to life and am still reading the 
book.  I will probably post some of the uses in the tips fourm latter.

A couple of suggestions:

1.    Could there be a line created that could be toggled on/off like 
the titlebar that would have the ability to contain the name of hte 
View and/or filter applied to the view?

I have many filters created and now many views as this is easier to 
toggle a view with a filter then to take the steps to bring up the 
filter selection.  But I don't always remember the view and filter 
combo as I look at the list.  It would be great to have the view name 
and filter name on the display.  This could be a list preference like 
the titlebar that could be turned off/on.

2.     Would it be possible to copy a view like you can copy a custom 
filter?

3.     It would be a great enhancement to apply a tag association 
filter on the fly as an addition to the filter in any view that I am 
working with. This would be a AND condition.  Maybe a button on the 
top c/f/v area that would allow a dropdown of the tags and allow one 
to select a tag and apply that to the existing view.

There are many times when I am looking at my massive ToDo list and I 
suddenly think of a need to review all the items that contain "x" 
tag.  Presently I need to make a filter for that tag association and 
then apply it.  What would be slick is to apply on on the fly, a 
disposable type of tag association filter.

So far about 60 different tags spread over 5 categories - keep adding 
ones everyday.  

Would be interesting to have a palm app that measures time spend in 
each application.  ShadowPlan would be way out there on my usage.

Thanks.

Hopefully, to clarify...
I'm one of the rare people CHRONICALLY plagued by the hanging hotsync 
problem. You've said to sync, you can just remove/delete the 160's.   
If I create a file on the desktop, or more commonly,  edit a file on 
the desktop, but inorder to get the blasted thing to sync, i have to 
remove the 160's, I never can incorporate the desktop changes on the 
HH. Right? Is the answer is just don't use the desktop?

If i disable the Desktop, say using force remove, will the bug still 
affect my syncs? 

hope this doesn't confuse things more... and hope you can help.--ms

I'm glad you have a fix for your problem. Unfortunately that doesn't
work really well with an NR70, when I don't have access to the hard
buttons while in tablet mode.

Jog Dial will scroll a list a screen at a time when the file is first
opened, but if I actually use the stylus to tap on an item to see the
details and then try to use the jog dial to scroll again, Shadow acts
pretty weird. It scrolls one line at a time, and sometimes won't scroll
at all for several tries (I think because it is also scrolling up one
line at a time on filtered items that I can't see.)

Jeff, is there some sort of obvious fix for this?

If the NR70 has the jog dial and back button and they function like previous
Clies, then you can de-select the (hi-lighted) item by pressing the back
button and jog-dial scrolling will be by screenful again.  When an item is
selected, jog-dial scrolling is by item.  You're right that, in by-item
mode, scrolling has a bug in that it doesn't skip the items hidden by the
current filter.  Jeff, how about fixing this bug for 2.5.1?

	Filters get tossed when coming in from a link, since it makes it
easy and fast to guarantee you're not hiding the item. (ie: What if you
came in from a link, and the item was filtered? What *should* happen?) So
we just remove the filter, to be safe.

	The list positioning problem when coming in from a link is
mine; it'll likely get fixed very soon, in an update to 2.5.

	Its a little odd, but its like this: Go to the Link Manager (for
any item), hit Add, pick Memo, pick Set Program, pick a program, then
cancel the addition of the link (unless you want to do it). The memo app
choice will stay forever, for all memo links.

	It'll stick.

	If the receiving app can understand a "goto", it'll work. Some
programs dont' do it, or don't do it right (Action Names, for instance).

	If any of them go to memoplus, they will all go. Shadow only has

the difference. If its going sometimes, but not others, its a Hack or

	Tapping in the gray-area of the scrollbar will scroll one screen
at a time. Using the hardbuttons will scroll one screen at a time, too.

	I'm trying to decide a way of making the titlebar show this info;
ie: I considered making a tap in the far left of the tbar change the tbar
to show the view and filtername. So toggle it between two modes. The
leftmost box on the tbar is for the coll/exp arrow.. but that may or may
not be present depending on if you have it set to indent or not. So can't
do that.

	I thought maybe a tap-and-drag on the tbar could toggle its
display mode. But thats uncool and "hidden".. no one would know unless
they read the manual.

	Or maybe add to the Alert that asks "Ascend" or "Descend" a button
for "Toggle" which changes between the two display modes.

	Or maybe putting the info into the tbar is the wrong
approach. Maybe another row is the way to go (optional of course).

	I've been tempted to add under the Tool menu a "Adhoc Filter
Wizard". You pick a tag, and it ditches your current filter and creates a
n unsaved custom filter for just that tag. But not sure how useful it
is. It wouldn't save, so is just until you exit the app.

	Check the manual ;)

	If an item is selected, jog will go up/down one item. If no item
selected, you'll go a page at a time. You can hit the Back button to
unselect the selected item, and push the jog button to select an item, or
open details.

	So scroll page up/down, push jog to select an item, scroll up/down
one at a time, hit Back to clear selection, then up/down page at a time.

	Its quite slick :)

How can I revert to "default mode" for the type of an item in a list?

If I change the type for an individual item in a list (from, say Checklist 
to Note), that item's type remains as Note even if the list's type is 
changed to (say) Worksheet.  Is there a way of converting the individual 
item's type back to "default" (so that it follows the type set for the list

I suspect not, as the manual says, "If you change it [the item] to (say)

or until you change its override again" - I'm just hoping this ain't

It does have to be a pretty quick tap though, especially if you are
overclocking the app. If you hold the stylus to the bar too long it keeps
going (I had that same problem in college : )). Just an observation.

	I'm not sure what you mean.

	Do you mean you want to have a View, that contains a Custom Filter
that shows items matching a certain tag?

	What exactly are you trying to do, and what is happening? Yout
description above blows my mind :)

Ok, I apologize, let me try again..

I have a Custom View setup called Tickler View under the View Manager 
the box for select is checked off with a filter called tickler as 
well.  I hope ok so far. Under the Custom Filter Detail screen for 
tickler the rule tag is by association to this tag: ?.  So when I go 
back to select the custom view I want applied it shows up fine 
because I've attached tags to all the items on that list but the list 
title @Work also shows up, even though it doesn't have a tag attached 
to that, note I have no children under the @Work list title yet but 
nontheless its still showing up on the my Tickler View..Is this a 
bug, I've experienced similar actions with custom saved views, I 
upgraded from the SP 2.2.1 I think to the 2.5 version and that's when 
I noticed this behavior..

thanks Jeff.

Hi again Jeff, it would be cool to change the color of the band, so 
instead of a purple band, one could change it to whatever, also it 
would be AMAZING if for example the list heading under a list view 
could have the col-bg thing applied to them only so it would look 
color coordinated and not like present with alternating purple 
colored bands,

for 
example:

What I just explained translates to have all the @ headings to have 
the col-bg applied to them and one would choose whichever color one 
wants, anything other than purple for example

Is this possible because that would really just put SP over the top, 
as it is right now its at the top but this would just give you a 
cleaner look and yet take advantage of the col-bg

	So your filter is looking for tag "?"? @Work item (not list, I use
"list" to mean "file") must have "?" attached to it? The filter has no
other rules?

	The ledger colours are only pleasing to look at if they are
regular spaced. Having them eraticly spaced makes them bloody annoying,
trust me ;)

	Alternative colours ay come in the future. Just a function of time

Subject: 2.5 comments and uses

 
I was very surprised and very grateful you found a way to cram the 
creation date in there. Some of my lists are purely informational and 
when the items get too old the info is not trustworthy.

Another list I use to keep track of all the configuration changes and 
tweeks I make to the 60+ PCs I support.  Just this week a user said 
that his PC has not been shutting down correctly for the last month 
or so.  Now that I can see the cr date I can quickly narrow down the 
possible changes that may have caused it in that time frame. You can 
imagine how much troubleshooting time this can save.  Once again 
Shadow pays for itself.

That reminds me: I had been using target date for this purpose but I 
wouldn't always remember to set it. How about an option for all new 
items to default to target date of current date (or 1 week from 
current).  I know, I know, you're working on the desktop.

FILTERS:

Filters are over the top!  I use Boolean type filters everywhere, but 
on the Palm they always seem limited.  On HandBase your limited to 2 
levels:

[NOT] condition1 AND/OR [NOT] condition2

which is not enough in many situations.  The last time I used ThinkDB 
it had 3 levels.

Not so with Shadow, filtering is probably more powerful than I'd ever 
need in everyday use.

At first I thought they were awkward, but now that I'm used to them 
and they seem quick and easy.  

OR - inside Groups
AND - between Groups

(Correct me if I'm wrong here, I haven't read the manual yet.)

TAGS:

Tags appear to be so versatile that I think they'll be the central 
function of most lists.  But so far I haven't used them much in my 
working lists except for people names or depts.  

Also an idea I got from this forum: I use them to tag very short 
tasks so when I get some free time (I can dream) I can filter for 
them.  I use those 1/4, 1/2, and 3/4 one character thingies. (ACSII 
188, 189, 190) They're nice and small and look great in the tag 
column. 

(Jeff, is there a problem using them? I haven't seen a problem yet.)

VIEWS:
 
I already use views ALL the time.  I very glad they can include 
filters, I don't think they would be as useful to me without that.  
Of course now that I've been spoiled like everyone else I want more.  
It sure would be nice if a view could include fonts in a future 
version.  I find myself switching to a small font pretty regularly, 
which means many taps for normal and bold font.  Resetting is 
faster.  

I have a feeling it won't be possible because the fonts I have on my 
HH wouldn't be the same as someone else.  

Many, many thanks for a great great app.  

The more I use it the more uses I find for it.

You can set the item type to 'List's Type', then it'll default to whatever

I'm fairly certain that the FC software (FPS) does not use the Palm ToDo
database. So you would have to link your SP item to ToDo and then import
them into FPS. That would get the items into FPS, but again I'm fairly
certain that this would break the link (you couldn't expect to mark it
complete in FPS and see that carry over to SP).  So all in all, I don't
think there is a useful way of linking SP to FPS.

If I can make a suggestion, I would tell you to drop FPS and go with SP
instead. I tried FPS for a while, and not only is the software buggy, it is
very PC-centric, meaning your expected to do all your planning on the PC
and get to view it on the hand held. It's getting to the point that I can
manage my life very well with SP HH, SP DT, Palm DT, and Week View on the
Palm. Feel free to contact me directly if you have any more questions about
switching over.

	Franklin Covery uses proprietary databaes and won't publish their
specs. As such, no program can work with FC's stuff without reverse
engineering it, and its not worthit seince it leaves them to change the
format at any time and mess evewryone up, and is of dubious legality. So
we don't touch FC..

	No -- filtering works its way up, but not down. Filtering was
always designed to narrow your view, not... "increase it" (by showing you
children). Matching a child matches all parents, but matching a parent
doesn't match its children.

	We could try and build something, but you can't do it with Filters
right now.

	Someday I'll make it so one filter can depend on another.. that'll
make it infinitely powerful. But even now, it should be good enough for
99% of uses..

	You got it. - is always ANDed.

	*gasp* :)

	See the Ref Guide for some examples I came up with.

	Tag title is only used for display, not internally, so there
should be no problem. You should be able to use whatever you like..

	Not likely font control in views. Sorts and such sure, but not
likely fonts.. that woudl lead to far too mjuch user confusion and a nasty
UI..

Hi Jeff,

Love the update on the handheld.  Only problem is that when it tries 
to sync, it runs indfinitely--I've let it go for up to 30 min.  I 
have a clie 760 and run Win 2000.  Any ideas?

	An old bug in the conduit, will be fixed soonish.

	Do a file find for lastsync.txt
	In the same location are your desktop XML files; move them
somewhere else for safe keeping.

	You're good to go.

I do something similar at present.. Shadowplan lets me build context for
items, but I make sure the 'leaf' items all make sense without the parents.
At present, the parents provide only structure.. Something like..

Work
    Roadrunner
        Distribute Project Plan
        Talk to Mark about ideas for new API
        Kick Fred to give me feedback on timescales
    Coyote
        Write Sales information document
        ..
Home
    Lawn
        Rake lawn
        Re-seed lawn
    Internet
        Investigate BSD mbuf bug

The leaf items then get linked to ToDos.. (actually, I only link the Next
Items).

However, with Shadow 2.5, tags and filters etc are much more powerful, and I
probably want to keep all this stuff in Shadow. It would be nice to be able
to set up some flattened views.. Ie. "Show next items without parents". I
can zoom into individual levels, which does help some, but the ability to
hide some of the structure would be useful. I tried to do it with a filter
on "level > 2", but obviously, that still shows parents...

I understand that its not really how Shadow does things, and I havent really
seen a need for it before now (Shadow linked to ToDo did this fine), but now
Shadow has all these new features, I can see real use for the "flattened"
view.
