Subject: option for additional shortcuts (was 2 or 3 little things)

 
Quick thought about a possible pool of untapped shortcuts: DB5 uses 
numbers as shortcuts as well as letters (I think CESD's used /1 
thru /7 so far, at least).  Not very intuitive, obviously, but it 
could give yo a little breathing room; if it's an important enough 
function to a particular user, there's a lot of incentive to memorize!

While I can appreciate the complexities, Jeff, I look forward to your 
investigation of this point.  It's one of the reasons I haven't 
really started using the desktop much.  But nonetheless, I'm still 
getting a lot of mileage out of the HH!

Subject: Cut / Paste Error Message

 
Has anyone come across this ... I'm working in a list.  I cut an item 
from that list using the [C] in the upper right corner, and then I 
paste as child that item (again, using the [C]) somewhere else in the 
same list. FYI ... The item in question happens to have a link 
associated with it.  When I then tap on the link arrow (far right 
side of screen) and tap "Go to ToDo", I get the error 
message "MemoryMgr.c, Line:4365, NULL Handle".  I then have to do a 
soft reset.  When I come back to this list, the link for this 
particular item has been severed and I have to reset the link.  What 
gives?  I don't seem to encounter this problem if I just "drag-and-
drop".

Interesting, and a better question for Jeff, but it would seem cut and paste would be more likely to sever a link logically thinking, and drag and drop less likely.  To me, the solution you are getting would be what I would expect, but maybe that is not right.  Jeff...?

Yes, me too, but it's rare :) (Jeff, I couldn't resist, I sat on my 
hands and everything)

Todd, see my message #7613 and Jeff's reply at #7618.

I couldn't reproduce the error and I haven't seen it since and I 
have since completed the item.

	For debug sake, try doing it, and try doing it after cleaing the
clipboard. When you do a "paste", the original item is still in the
clipboard, so it is possible that when you do the "goto", the two of the
items are fighting (ie: The one in the list, and the one in memory in the
clipboard). The clipboard item is supposed to let go of the link
gracefully when you exit Shadow, but perhaps it is still tied to the
pasted item.

	Baby steps; I wanted to get drag and drop in there, and othe forms
of item pushign around, and that required the conduit to be much more
intelligent. I also wanted the conduit to work on a large number of
desktops environment (where you sync at 5 stations, that sort of thing),
as well as improve it all around. So the last while was almost entirely
conduit focused. Now the conduit is stable, the goal is to get the Mac OSX
side to beta, and then I can focus on improving the desktops across the
board, with a new feature going in showing up in both Windows and Mac at
the same time. That makes my life a lot easier :)

	So things are coming together very nicely right now; Shadow 2.6
going out, a nice solid new platform for Windows. The Mac side is catching
up. The desktop is much easier to maintain and add featres to in the new
release, so I can grow things much easier without complications or the
like.

	So expect growth much faster now, anyway.

That's a real devilish tactic... I hadn't noticed you already had the
whole alphabet in there... :)

Looks like the available options are I, J, Y and Z. I'd go for
[shortcut] I, just for simplicity of the stroke... anyone have any
better preferences here?

Damn - didn't get a chance to post my beta5 problems.. Here they are 
anyway
a) Uninstall of previous beta's including 5, cause Control Panel/ Add 
Remove programs to hang. (On NT, XP and W2k). Has to be terminated 
with end task.

b) Dates in the desktop are in US format. Not desktop locale or palm 
spec.. just plain old USA. If you MUST stick to a single date, please 
use OCT-28-2002, or 28-Oct-2002 and avoid using numbers. What does 
10/2/2003 mean to you?? (not what it means to me I'm sure)[Issue 
still in 2.6 release]

Congratulations!

I've been laying low working on my Sony OS5 device for the last few days.

I'm little peeved since some of my programs that I use daily do not work any more.

As far as shadow is concerned, it works fine until you check off mixed resolution option--the display then gets corrupted and can't read it (it cuts off half of the letters)

So, all the small fonts are GONE!

	Nice!

	How good is the battery life?

	Virtual grafitti good, but I'll live without it. I just saw a Palm
show downtown Toronto where they waved magic wands. Some of this stuff
will be just incredible if it catches on, but the games and applications
already available for these units are incredible. Bluetooth head to head
gaming and messaging and file transfers are just going to go insane...

	Using Font Bucket by any chance? (Who knows if that works...)

	It should work fine on the Clie.. its using the Sony highres API
:/ Checked your font settings?

	Good question though.. does the NX70 use the Clie highres API, or
Palm OS5 highres API, or both?

	I'll be building a Palm OS5 highres option within hours or days,
fear not ;) Watch for a shadow-test announcement in a day or two no
doubt. No way I'm sitting in "low density" mode any more than I have to ;)

Quite a few.  Including Quickword, Daynotez, Supernames.  These programs all worked under Palm simulator, but . . .

I don't know about both.  According to Sony, they followed the Palm convention for HR API.  All the HR programs that worked under older Sony do not work any more.  So, I guess it's not both.

	WiFi? Bluetooth or 802.11? 802.11 is killer on power. Not a PDAs
fault. It seem sokay on battery life. Its a real shocker to give up

	OKay, so its probably an extended Palm one then, to support VG. I
bet thats the problem.. it probably says "yes, I'm Sony Clie hifghres
extensions" so you can do virtual grafitti, but when you try highres Sony
API it gets borked. We probably need to figure out if its VG only, and
Palm highres. Whacky :/

	Soon enough. Please watch shadow-test so I can fix you up :)

Jeff: this was an issue before the current betas, and it still remains: If I copy or cut items from an email (like sender's contact info) into an entry in a Shadow file on the DT, often when I try to open this file later I can't..the error references some unrecognized international characters, which aren't in there (at least not visible...these are US names and addresses) , but you have suggested the email may have some "junk" I can't see which is corrupting the Shadow file; However, I follow this procedure in other desktop apps, like DayNotez, and there is never a problem! Is this fixable in a future release?
Also, if you then open the raw .pdb on the DT to get your file back, and save it with as a Shadow DT file, with the .xml extension, the name still has the .htm extension, which needs to be manually corrected to *.xml. Why is that?
Having said that, I'm still on beta 4, so maybe I should try this again with beta 5?
Keep up the excellent improvements...

DT is 1.2.5; I'm sure pasting from Word shouldn't present any problems: I'm pasting usually from an email message, which we both agree can have some hidden junk. The last time I got the error, I had pasted a name/address/phone from someone's email (I'm using Outlook Express 6) and then copied them into DayNotez desktop, and then copy and pasted into Shadow.
Is it possible that copying first into Word can "wash" the text so it's clean enough for Shadow not to choke on it? Obviously DayNotez didn't do the job...but DayNotez didn't choke on whatever might be hidden in that text, either...what's the feature in Shadow that would make it that sensitive to a couple of snippets of hidden text (if that's what the problem is)?
Yeah, it's 2.6...but beta 5!! How are you groovin on the new Palm? Did you get the keyboard model, or is that coming out later? I'd be curious how it stacks up to the Clie N70 series...

	Check the FAQ. This is supposed to happen, and the old conduit
will go away next time you restart Hotsync Manager or reboot. IT wont'
sync twice or anything, either, so no worries.

	Pasting into Shadow Desktop 1.2.5 strips out all the offensive
binary junk Windows likes to include, so it should work.

	Make a new test list, with like 2 or 3 dummy items.

	Then go to your email app, and copy somethign, and paste it into
the memo/note field in the desktop. 

	Then send me the XML file if you cannot open it, and I'll see
whats going on in the XML.

	I picked up the Tungsten T (not the W which is the phone-like one
with the keyboard thingy on it).

	Being OS5 means losing Hacks which is a bit of a shocker (ie: I
live on PiDirect.. or did). Since OS5 is so new, theres a bucnh of apps I
suddenlly miss. MegaLauncher (highres on Cile) was my launcher for a long
long time.. but it doesn't yet work on OS5. So I'm stuck with SilverScreen
low rez (what I had before ML). It runs fast as a bat out of hell on the
Tungsten, but damn.. I hate Silverscreen :)

	Tungsten versus NX70 .. is complex. The Tungsten has a *gorgeous*
screen. Best I've ever seen on a handheld.. the white is actually white,
and it shows up great in light or dark. I've been using a Clie for awhile,
and those screens are nice, but the T whips them. The sound is excellent
etc. Highres yadda yadda. So the Tungsten has everythign the Clies can do,
and the same as the NX70.. exceptnig the virtual grafitti and built in
camera and clam keyboard. I dont' care about any of those things, nor do I
acre about mp3 or the like anyway.. I use a PAD for PDA work, not music
and casmera work.. I have a digital camera for that :)

	So the Tugnsten is quite nice; it is *very* fast. The Nx70 will be
faster I imagine, but fast is fast. The Tungsten seems to have a very good
battery life, while the XN will not. The older Clies were okay.. the N760C
was a great battery life for me, but the NR series is not godo enough
IMHO.

	I'm still learnign the unit, but so far.. I've beciome hooked
fast. Speed is everything :) Some main apps came over fine, while some
others broke.. but I expect updates soon. Handstory for instance better
fix soon or I'll go to Plucker or the like.. but I'm fond of Handstory. I
need a highres launcher, but I can get by. By the other apsp (like Shadow
;) run like crazy...

	Gotta run. If you want a review I can do one..

	In time. Lots of writing to get it to that point, since no desktop
OS provides that powerful a built in widget, so I'll be writing an all new
Shadow-like widget cross platform for all the desktops. But its very high
on my list.

	The button bar is a little faster than the menu, but good
idea. That coudl be a good use for the base window.. ie: I had intended it
to be a drag and drop anchor and for clipboard viewing, but a fast
launcher would be cool too. I'll meditate on it.

Subject: mass promotion of children?

 
Looking for advice, and hoping I'm missing something obvious!  If 
not, Jeff, there may be some feature requests imbedded here. :)

Is there a quick way to promote all the children of an item to the 
parent's level? Or, alternatively, to demote a parent to its 
children's level, or delete/cut/move a parent without 
deleting/cutting/moving the children?

Here's my situation: I wanted to make Shadow my repository for 
Someday/Maybe items, instead of having them occupy a ToDo category.  
So I did an import of that category, which contained 200+ items.  
Naturally, Shadow split them up into 3 lists, each with a single 
parent called "Someday/Maybe" that contained many children.  In order 
to get them all back into one file, I selected the parent items in 2 
of the lists and used "Send Clip to File" into the third.  

Now I have a list with 3 siblings, each called "Someday/Maybe", each 
with many children.  Now I want to get rid of the 3 top-level 
siblings and be left with one big list of all the current children as 
top-level siblings.  What's an EASY way to do this for very long 
lists?  

I realize that I could click on each child in turn and use "Promote 
Item" (which, admittedly, is now made much quicker by the new 
desktop), or check every child and then use "Cut and Uncheck All 
Checked" and paste into the top level - but any solution that 
requires me to manually touch every item seems to me to be 
unacceptable, or at least very unsatisfactory when dealing with so 
many items.  

I see several ways to address this: a "Promote All Children" command 
or "Check All Children" command on the handheld would seem to me to 
be the quickest.  Alternatively (or additionally!), enabling 
selection of multiple items on the desktop could accomplish the same 
thing, as long as the promote/demote buttons worked on the 
selection.  I would suggest the Windows "standard" 
Select+Shift+Select for selecting a range of items and 
Select+Ctrl+Select for selecting non-adjacent items, but I'm 
certainly open to other options.

Thanks in advance for any advice (or new features) ;).

Open list preferences and click the opt button.  There is an option there called 'suppress autocheck'  make sure this option is not selected.  Then in your list you should be able to just change your newly imported list into the checklist style so that everything has a checkbox, then checking the 3 parent items should cause all children to be checked.  Then go back to list preferences and turn that option on.  Then you can uncheck the parents and all the children stay checked

Subject: DT to HH sync problem

 
I'm still on the beta 5.  Not sure if this is a problem or if I've 
not set some setting correctly.

With a file sync'ed, I made some edits on the DT copy (added a couple 
items, edited a couple items), then resync.  When I check the HH, I 
see:

1 - new items came across OK.
2 - in that section (parent on down) I just added to, ALL items are 
now checked as if completed.  (Actually, I suspected this was going 
to happen when I saw all items in the DT screen had the "Finished 
Date" filled in with today's date
3 - edited items - changes did not come across.

I looked at the sync options: HH overides DT, but that's IF there's a

Subject: Re: mass promotion of children?

 
Matt,

I recently did pretty much exactly what you did (though on a smaller scale,
so I just promoted each item individually) and ran across a bug in the
conduit.  (I've passed the info on to Jeff and it's on his list of fixes).
It occurs only when you make the changes you described on the HH on a list
you are syncing to the DT.

IF you make the promotion changes on the HH AND then delete the original
parent BEFORE you sync with the DT, the promoted children will be deleted as
well. (of course they can be restored from backups, but that's another step
you don't want to take.)

Procedure to avoid this:
1.  Promote all children - I'll leave it up to you as to how :-)
2.  Sync with DT.
3.  Delete original parent - Someday/Maybe in your case

Interestingly, this does not occur if you make the changes on the DT, so
that's another work around.

Not trying to alarm anybody..... Just know this happened to me..... it's on
the list to be fixed........ Doesn't shake my confidence in a great tool!

Neal

Subject: syncing problems

 
I am having trouble syncing from the DT to the HH, with 2.6.  I sync 
between two computers, but I do not think that is playing a role here. 
 After I synced on the second computer, I changed something on the 
desktop.  I sync again, but that change does not appear on the HH. The 
hotsync option is set to syncronise.  As to whether there were changes 
on both sides, it was first set to HH overrides; I then selected keep 
items from both sides -- still no difference, although that should not 
be the issue since I only changed on the desktop.

Any ideas?

Just out of curiousity, how is it that Palm desktop syncs with no 
problems, on different computers, but syncing in other programs is so 
much more complex?  I am sure there is a good answer, but it is not 
obvious to this layman.

Well for one the built in databases that Palm Desktop uses are actually rather 
simple. For each function there is only one file, and that file is pretty flat 
in it's structure (you don't have nested Contacts, you don't have nested ToDo's 
etc.).

Shadow however (as an example of a more complex sync situation) has multiple 
databases ... each containing (potentially) highly nested data. Elements can be 
moved hirearchically, created, destroyed, etc ... and this all needs to be 
tracked.

Also I don't think that the Palm Desktop is as swift as you may think, but 
rather the Data isn't as dynamic. How many times a day do you update your 
address book compared to your Shadow lists? I'm sure if you were adding and 
removing contacts at the rate of several a day ... in between syncing on 
different desktops ... that you would run into occasions where you'd end up 
loosing (or gaining unwanted) data. It's similar with Memo's, Todo's and 
Datebook entries (although these last two are much more dynamic ... but that's 
why people use programs like Dbk5 and Shadow ... )

Subject: What to do with Tungsten 5-way Pad?

 
We've had one-handed operation of Shadow Plan for awhile (for
Clie's). Of course, thats all Sony specific stuff, and is jog-dial
oriented anyway. So how would we want the 5-way button to work?

	FYI: The five-way control is actually a 4-way "d-pad" with a
center button. Its a disc that you can push up, down, left, or right, or
push down in the middle. I imagine it will be good for gamers, especially
if it can sense two things at once and thus represent 8-direction ;)

	For the Clie's jog dial, we make it like this: Jog either moves
the selection hilight up or down one item, or pages up or down. It pages
the view if no item is selected, or moves the hilight if an item is
selected. If no item is selected, pushing the jog selects the topmost
visible item, while pushing th Back button unselects an item. Pushing the
back button while no item is selected takes you back to the file selecting
screen. Pushing the jog while an item is already selected opens the
Details window. While in the file selection screen, the jog lets you
scroll up and down the file listing, and pushing the jog opens the
selected file.

	Essentially on the Clie, using the jog and back buttons, you can
view any Shadow list on your handheld, with one hand.

	We could do similar things with the navigation control on the
Tungsten, perhaps even figure out a way to check items.

	Before you get goofy, I don't think I want to have a horizontal
icon bar of operations, with "push" picking one and left/right selecting
which one, and up/down selecting items. Thats too much work and would be
bloaty ;)

	However, using up/down to scroll the selection or view, and
left/right to select or unselect, sounds reasonable and would fit into the
existing jog dial code reasonably easily. We could use the push-button to
open details, or perhaps do checkbox toggling and leave the detail window
to the left/right action. So in effect we could use up/down just as with
jog dial, and use left/right to simulate the jog push and back button
push.. that leaves us with the center push button tobe something new, like
toggle checkbox.

	Any thoughts?

	That would suggest they were already checked when they got to the
desktop. Did you accidentally hit the Checkbox somewhere along the
line? (like on the parent, and thus checkign all the children?)

> 3 - edited items - changes did not come across.

	Are they linked to ToDo or Datebook? (ie: I so, then the linked
object becomes the master when "outside of Shadow", so you then have 3
sources of truth, with the external linked object takign precedence)
(Yeah, I need to think about this. Its getting complicated ;)

	Does this help?

	Is 2.6 installed on both desktop machines?

	Is the item linked to ToDo or Datebook? (ie: If an item is in the
handheld, and desktop, and also linked out to ToDo or Datebook... then a
change on the desktop may get clobbered by the external ToDo or Datebook
item, snice it gets checked when you open the list, not at sync time).

	Palm Desktop programs (like ToDo, Memopad, etc) are all programs
where the items have no relations or complexity. ie: Every single ToDo is
separate from every other ToDo. Shadow data is relational and much mroe
complex, with items takling to each other in many ways.

	Consider: A ToDo list .. it is flat. There are no children versus
parents. An item is just up or down in the database, and that doesn't even
matter to it.. the item is just an island unto itself.

	In Shadow we have to worry about relationships like "contains"; if
you move an item to be a child of another item, and them move another item
to eb a child o that one.. what happens when yuo delete the middle on on
the desktop, or mvoe it somewherre else, so no the handheld relations
different than the desktop relations? The items may be identical, but
*something* has changed..

	It is a much more complex situation in many many ways :)

	See, Palm has carefulyl designed its applications to keep their
lives easy, but as a result, you can see the limits of those applications.

I was thinking use the push button for select...sort of...

If you have been scrolling up or down, it will select. If you have 
selected, it will open. If it is open, it will close. To unselect, 
just start scrolling with up and down again. Of course that doesn't 
address how to get to notes.

Just random thoughts at this point.

I downloaded 2.6 from your website today, and ran the setup program

When launching the desktop, a message advising me to enter the code 
on the handheld side appeared.  I have two codes: one for the

entering the handheld code works, but does not register the desktop.  
Entering the desktop code fails.

What am I doing wrong?

	The desktop gets its registration from the handheld during
synchronization. As such, snice you bought in two steps, your handheld
must be registered twice -- first with your handheld code, then with your
expansion code. (You cannot just enter the expansion code, since people
would just buy the expansion package and I'd go out of business ;)

	So if your second code doesn't work, you must msiremember or
misenter it or the like. Send me your hotsync ID and your two codes in
private email.

	And your codes will still work for OS5 :)

	When an item is linked to the ToDo or Datebook, for now, those
applications become the master (ie: The Shadow Desktop gets clobbered by
Palm Desktop). In this case, you can change those items in Palm Desktop
(since it is the master).

	I will be changing some stuff so that the two condutis cooperate a
little better with co-owned objects. (Whew, say that 3 times fast ;)

Jeff,

One feature I would like to see in the Desktop is an option allowing 
URL's in a Shadow list to be displayed as hyperlinks, such that I 
could click on a URL and launch IE or another browser from an open 
file.  Although not a high priority item I'm sure, I think it would 
be very useful.

Thanks,

	Yep; we'll see. Theres various complications around that, so its
lower priority than some other stuff.. but I'd like it too :)

	Strange. What windows OS version?

	Tried rebooting and installing again? (I've been using the same
version of the catapult setup builder for a year or so now, and its been
very reliable)

	You can find the expat.dll in the distribution By_Hand
directory; copy it to the same location as your hotsync.exe (you can do a
file find for it), and you should be cool. It also needs to be where you
are installing shadow.exe to.

	Try installing again. It should work fine. If you're using NT,
perhaps you need to make sure you're an administrator? (Some NT's are
screwy this way)

	Shadow doesn't talk to Outlook at this time... not directly
anyway. We can link items to the ToDo and Datebook databases, and Outlook
will sync those. Since those databases don't have the ability to tag
items, it would have to be as text. For instance, you could turn on
"Origin Stamps" for linked objects, and then you would see filename and
parental hierarchy for those linked items, but not tags. Including tags
(or perhaps the Prime tag) in origin stamps or the like could perhaps be
an option, but its not something you can do now. Neat idea though.

Speaking of ideas, I'd love it if Shadow eventually had a per list option to use the heirarchy stamp or the prime tag stamp.  My main action list has very little hierarchy now with tags.  Having every todo link just give me the filename is not too helpful, other than giving me a quick way to jump via shadowlink.  For tag stamps, I'd love an option for just filename>>primary tag.  At first I was thinking just primary tag, but I'd still like to use shadowlink to jump.

Subject: RE: Outline Numbering

 
I too would like to see AutoNumbering go beyond 3 levels deep.  Many of my
outlines end up 7-8 layers deep, so I have to manually number anything
beyond 3.  Now that version 2.6 address the problem of retaining numbering
beyond the third level, I don't have to renumber everything quite so often.

I do have a slight work around that I have been using:  Since all of the
children under one parent will adopt the numbering of a sibling, (would that
be peer pressure??!!), I keep a 9 level template-item at the bottom of my
list.  When I add a new item to the list, I begin by copying this template,
pasting it in the appropriate location and then filling it in.  Since all of
the numbering is now "predefined", each child will adopt the correct
numbering type.  

While this works for creating an outline, it does nothing for editing,
leaving the outline format fairly static and isn't dynamic information the
whole point??

Shaun

	It will definitely come to the desktop. We'll work out deep
auto-numbering too, sooner or later :)

I've brought this concatenation scheme of numbering up here in this 
forum as well. Jeff's thoughts were that to go much beyond what is 
now possible in ShadowPlan (3 as a list preference and a couple more 
that siblings will automatically inherit) would take up too much 
screen territory.

What I do because of this limitation is to have a network of lists 
rather than very deep lists. I rarely use the file selection screen --
 rather I have a master table of contents (personal, 
family/household, work, etc) that links to tables of contents for 
each of those topics. I find that I actually move around my lists 
(103 at the present) faster through this network than navigating by 
way of the file selection screen. As I develop a new list and it 
starts to go deeper than 4 levels I break off the appropriate items 
into a seperate linked list. A couple branches of my tree have tables 
of contents of lists 3 levels deep.

I have currently recaptured a lot of my 
screen space by using 6-point fonts and I still wonder about the 
concatenation numbering scheme -- but what I have going right now 
works.

	I'm not against it, I'm just afraid of using u your whole screen
for numbering ;) However, that may be less of a concern seeing as highres
is about to become widespread :)

	I'm not sure I want to have the List Prefs screen have a giant
enforcement section.. so I may have to provide an anlternate screen to
specify level locks or the like. We'll see. Keep bugging me :)

	Curious; 2.6 cannot really damage files, unless something
extremely bizarre happens on your handheld. Are you sure you've got 2.6
installed (And not 2.5.something?)

	If the name of tyhe file is "foo" on your handheld, do a search
for "ShadP-foo.PDB" on your desktop (case insensitively), to find the raw
PDB backup. Try opening that with Shadow Desktop (using Open PDB from the
base window file menu).  It may or may not handle a "broken file", but
theres a good chance it can fetch out a bunch of the content and allow you
to "Save as" and make a new XML or PDB file to send back to the handheld
(to save re-creating the list). It is generally very hard to lose data,
even in themost dire of circumstances.

	Without knowing more detail, I cannot see how it could happen with
2.6 fully installed. (You have conduit 2.0? You can tell from the sync
progress box for Shadow, while you're syncing)

I'm probably evil for suggesting this, but I'd rather have it
automatically save whatever changes I make but have persistent undo
capability, so if I accidently make a change, I can undo then, or I
can close and undo later.  :)

I personally find the constant prompting of programs to be quite
annoying, and with a flexible undo mechanism, quite unnecessary.  If I
didn't want a change, I wouldn't have made it, dang it!  :)

Jeff, I checked and I do have the 2.6.0 version. I downloaded the 
desktop and handheld as one unit so I assume I have the right 
conduit. 

Could this be the problem? I think I may have started the list on the

just checked the Synch box on the list preferences menu. I think this

	No, thats fine.

	Send me the top portion of a lastsync.txt file (you can do a file
find to locate one) to support@c... and I'll take a look, see if
theres any gives. Otherwise, I'm at a bit of a loss (ie: Don't have enough
information to go on).

	Anyway, if you want to get the contents of the file back, let me
know privately; I'll walk you through a few options.. we can probably get
all the content back in a snap.

	I had someone a couple months back send me an import format
MSPRoject likes; if you coudl also nail down an import format, send it to
me privately. I wouid like to build a CSV export from Shadow that you
could then import into MSProject.

	I suppose what I really need (that likely no one but me can
provide ;) is a CSV layout that woudl allow me to export it to MSPRoject,
and then that MSPRoject could itself export so we could share the same
data back and forth between MSProject. I don't know if Microsoft makes
that easy. It'll certainly be easier for future XML based MSOffice apps :/

I still think some sort of time delay might be nice too, because I am
usually trying to do nothing more than expand collapse or check a
checkbox. Perhaps if you do the Navigator pad implementation "right"
some of the things I use the stylus for that cause unintentional drags
could be done with button presses instead. I would LOVE left/right to
expand/collapse! Maybe a toggle on one side, so that the other side
could be used to check the checkbox if present, or perhaps the center
button would check the check box. It takes a really long press to get
back to the launcher, so maybe that would work.

	I chanegd the voice button to go to launcher; much faster. Too bad
you cannot redefine the center buntton to do voice though :) (whe held)

	I'm undecided abtuo the 5-way yet; I'm hoping as peopel get it,
they'll let me know..

	ie: We need to be able to do one handed navigation; since the TT
has no jog dial and instead has the 5-way, it has to do more or less the
same sorts of things. If there was a back button, we could use left and
right for stuff (using up/down as analagous to the jog dial).. but there
isn't. So we must use left/right for the same thigs as jog-push
(right) and back button (left)...

	So I'm thinking like this:

	(All for the 5-way d-pad controller)

	Up:
	If nothing selected, page up.
	If selection, select previous item.

	Down: Opposite of Up :)

	Right:
	If nothing selected, select top visible item.
	If selection, not-parent, open up details.
	If selection, is a parent, expand it.. or if already
		expanded, open Details.

	Left:
	If nothing selected, go to file selection screen.
	If selection, collapse (if parent). If not parent, deselect.

	This seems to make some sense.. except that once you're in
Details, the center-button is Done (the OS does that). So its a little
inconsistent...

	However, with the above scheme, we have the center button entirely
unused. I thought we could use it to toggle collapse maybe, or toggle
checkbox, or somesuch..

Toggle checkbox, since expand/collapse work with left and right!

	Font Bucket (latest version) works fine, I think. I'm using it on
my unit, but I've not installed any font packs.. but I use it to fiddle
with the built in fonts and it works no problem.

The following shadow-discuss poll is now closed.  Here are the 
final results: 


POLL QUESTION: Mac OSX users; the Shadow Desktop for
OSX is in alpha testing (see the
screenshot on the website!). I can
expect to get the desktop through
testing reasonably quickly, but the
conduit (that does the syncing) will
take another few weeks or so to get into
testing, plus a few weeks of testing.

Would you rather have a public release
of Shadow Desktop for OSX that initially
does not have a sync conduit? (it can
read and write to your raw PDBs that
Hotsync Manager works with). Or would
you rather wait a month or two to get
the Shadow Desktop including the
conduit, so it just syncs as normal? 

CHOICES AND RESULTS
- I'd like (and purchase since updates are free) OSX Desktop right away! Can live without conduit for awhile, 10 votes, 66.67%  
- I'd like (wouldn't purchase until conduit) OSX Desktop right away! Can live without conduit for awhile, 2 votes, 13.33%

Here's an interesting one.

I have a problem with my M105 in that when I change the batteries a 
hard reset ensues.

In the past everything has been recovered to my Palm.

The first time I went through this process with the new 2.6 conduit, 
the Conduit hung in the initial setup phase. The HH claimed to be 
syncing the To Do List.

I managed to recover using 2 Custom hotsyncs the first excluding 
Shadow and the second including ONLY Shadow.

Anyone any  ideas as to how to avoid this problem ?

	Its the regular Shadow version, upped to alpha 2.6.2; it should
work identically on all non-OS5 units as 2.6.0 does. (ie: For you, it
offers high resolution as normal, but not yet virtual grafitti)

	yeah, the new conduit seems to pause or hang during some hard
reset recoveries; it shoudln't be an issue.. next sync all is fine. I'm
not sure about details yet, but I expect it to be fixed in next update (in
a week or two or so hopefully). The issue is that on some Palm Desktops,
Shadow is being given a totally invalid set of data during hard reset
restorations, and the conduit gets hung thinking about it :/

	I think you just need to push hotsync again and it'll all work
second sync :/

	Fix coming.

OKay, I've gotten 5 people twisting my arm the last 2 days. If
I've let Handera support slide too much, I apologize. I've got a lot of
other forces at work (including thousands of non-Handera users ;), so as
usual.. the grit in the wheel does haev some power ;)

	I'll see what I can do; I'm not going to tackle all of it.. ie:
I'm not sure how many people really care about landscape mode, and if its
work.. it has to wait. But I'll see what I can do about highres support
and whatnot.

	Handera folks are like Mac folks ;)

Subject: Shadow 2.6.2 gone beta.. OS 5 high-res

 
This is a mini release to get you early adopters of the Palm
Tungsten T or the Sony NX70 high resolution. I know I couldn't spend
another hour in low resolution mode ;)

	Get it from the front page of the http://www.codejedi.com site!

	Theres a few little gotchas, but I figured you couldn't wait any
longer.

What are the gotchas?? I didn't see anything mentioned on the site.

And if anyone else has done this, what's the best font you've found? I have 
awful eyes, so I've tried the Garamond 14 bold (as my normal font) and it's not 
quite right. Any suggestions?

	The only one I found was that when you're drag-and-dropping that
the items you drag over can get funny looking (low-rezified), until the
drag is complete. Its simply temporary aesthetics.

	I just use the Palm built-in "large" font, which in high-res mode
is tiny, but not goofily-tiny :) (ie: Palm OS size 12 in Font Bucket
speak, or the large font if not using Font Bucket)
