	Just because I love replying to myself today :)

	If you want to see the "small" font (Palm 9 point standard) in
high res, you can check the screenshots page:

http://www.codejedi.com/shadowplan/screenshots.html

	The top left screenshot is the small built in 9 point font being
used on the high density OS 5 Tungsten display.. *Tiny* :) Thats why I use
a little larger..

Jeff,
Is there anyway during sync to have the conduit automatically purge 
lists from ShadowPlan 160 that are no longer on the HH? I delete and 
change names of files often enough that I accumulate clutter there. 
Deleted files remain in the folder as well as the original list after 
a rename and then a sync. This clutter adds difficulty in opening up 
the right list, especially after a rename.

Subject: Simple Printing from the Desktop

 
Jeff,

I want to cast my vote again for simple printing functionality from 
the desktop.  I hate to bring up a competitor's product, but 
ThoughtManager has a nice printing function.  I am not a 
ThoughtManager fan because it is a very simple outliner and doesn't 
have all the other functions of Shadow, but at least the printing is 
straight forward. You can print a list with checkboxes or send a list
directly to WORD to include in a report.  

I would like Shadow to let me print my lists including the checked or 
blank checkboxes, etc.  Then I could refer to the printed 
list throughout the day when I am away from the desktop and don't
have the time or it would be awkward to scroll throught the list on 
the handheld.  As I go along throughout the day I can refer to and 
check off tasks as I work on them. At the end of the day I would 
transfer my new checked tasks to the desktop or handheld and sync.

Simple export to WORD would help when you need to include a list as
an outline in a report.

Thanks for keeping us "uncomplicated users" in mind.

Richard

Subject: Shadow conduit hangs after fard reset

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 ?

Mark

 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.

 It should be harmless (if a little odd).

I use the list view and like having the date on the left...the reason 
is it doesn't waste a line for one event.  Your method would require 
two lines for days with only one appointment. To me that's more 
wasteful than the 8 characters wasted now.

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

 This is a mini release to get you early adopters of the Palm

 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

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)

 I plan on addinf a feature where we have an "Archive" directory in

blank checkboxes, etc.  Then I could refer to the printed 
list throughout the day when I am away from the desktop and don't
have the time or it would be awkward to scroll throught the list on 
the handheld.  As I go along throughout the day I can refer to and 
check off tasks as I work on them. At the end of the day I would 
transfer my new checked tasks to the desktop or handheld and sync.

Simple export to WORD would help when you need to include a list as
an outline in a report.

Thanks for keeping us "uncomplicated users" in mind.

Subject: Managing Tags

 
In trying to move a handful of separate Shadow lists into one larger 
list (with each item having numerous tags for eventual filtering), I 
find it takes a fair amount of time to individually add each tag to 
each item. If I'm bringing in 200 items and each can have an average 
of 5 tags, then that's 1000 different assignments I need to make. 
Maybe there is a better way to do this. What about, in addition to 
the current "Add Tag" method, using a more 2 dimensional method of 
managing tags? Have a screen that looks like this:

    Tag #1 #2 #3 #4 #5 <>
Item
Item 1   X  X  X  X
Item 2   X     X     X
Item 3      X  X
Item 4      X     X  X
Item 5         X

The row of tags could be scrolled sideways within a given tag 
category. The column of items could be scrolled up and down based on 
the current filtered list. The center section would move up & down or 
back & forth with the top row or left column. Tapping the 
intersection of an item and a tag would put assign that tag to that 
item. An X would appear to denote the assignment. Tapping a displayed 
X would remove the link between the tag and the item. Using such an 
interface would make it easier to set multiple tags for a given item 
or assign one or more tags to multiple items.

Comments? Is this even feasible?

Thanks!

Subject: Keyboard Friendly but ...

 
Hi all,

Last week I got a Palm Portable Keyboard for my HandEra 330.  I was quite 
surprised to see how keyboard friendly Shadow Plan is.  

<space> = demote
<backspace> = promote
<left arror> = collapse current level
<right arrot> = Expand current item
Cmd A = View note
...

The only one I can't get to work from the keyboard is:

Cmd <space> = Toggle checkbox

The graffiti strokes work but not the keyboard equivalent.

The keyboard sequence brings up the on-screen keyboard.  Is there any way
to prevent the OS from bringing up this keyboard and allow the sequence to
go to Shadow?

Thanks,
Steven

I'm a bit leary about toggling the checkbox with the center button. 
Most of my filters screen out the checked items.  My concern is that
if I accidentally toggle while navigating, then I have to change to a
different filter, find the item again, and uncheck it.

I would vote for center button expands link menu so I can navigate to
linked items.

Subject: Still have that bad syncing feeling

 
I am still unable to select any different custom sync settings other 
than the defaults on my work computer - Win2k. I think this is due to 
my work's security measures and requirements for administrator 
priviliges to accomplish some tasks. Today I tried to convert a PDF 
file using the Adobe Reader Palm Desktop tool and my computer gave me 
a message saying that that task required administrator priviliges. 

Other then that I'm loving the new conduit in terms of NO occurences 
of doubled items in my lists and I do have all the other capabilities 
on my home computer.

I'm likeing the new capabilities of the desktop as well ... but give 
us something new and many of us get ideas for more, don't we? Would 
it be possible, and practical, to add the capability of some keyboard 
shortcuts to initiate some tasks? Especially new item, new child. 
This would enhance what you've already done to make list development 
easier through the desktop interface.

I have some other thoughts/suggestions/and buggy items in addition to 
the above but I kind of hold to the approach of dribbling one or two 
things out at a time and see if they resonate with other shadow-

Subject: RE: Simple Printing from the Desktop

 
Jeff-
Just for the record on the issue of printing:  I'm about to have to
abandon Shadow due to the lack of print ability from the Palm.  I
evaluated Shadow for preparing drafts of specifications and other
engineering documents while in the field, and the main use for test and
inspection check lists and recording comments during start-up
commissioning of drawbridges (my specialty).  

SP does a perfect job for me until I get ready to leave the meeting or
job site when I MUST leave a copy, especially of a inspection Punch
List, for the contractor to correct.  It can't wait several days until I
return to my office and can cut/paste or whatever into word; and I don't
carry a laptop with me (that's the reason for the PDA).

I carry both a IR linked hp-dj340 printer and a mini SiPix Pocket
Printer AT in my field kit so am ready to print.  I'm not concerned much
about formatting as long as it's legible and the outline order is
maintained (I usually use "legal" numbering so don't even need
indenting), but I must be able to share the results with the contractor
and other participants in the meeting (and no, most of them do not use
PDA's and beaming to other installations of Shadow is not a option.
Contract requirements insist on hard copy reports).

The necessity to share work with others is so primary to almost
everything I do (except my contact list and calendar) that I was
surprised how little support printing gets in both Shadow and most other
outliners.  Must be a lot of very non-communicative PDA users in the
world.  Anyway, it appears that I'm in the vast minority of SP users so
understand why my needs don't get up very high on your to-do list ... or
is it that the majority of folks who need printed output just don't
consider or use Shadow?  A wonderment.

	An interesting idea, but I woudl rather come at things from
analyzing the root needs and causes; ie: Your real need is to assign 1000
tags (damn, 5 tags on *every* item?! :), so perhaps instead of defining a
keen but comlpex and all new interface, you really just need a fast way fo
mass-tagging? ie: "Assign this tag to all items in this sublevel", that
sort of thing. PErhaps a simple coupel of taps to do a mass assign would
be mroe efficient use of resources?

	Cool (the drawbridges part, not the leaving shadow part :)

	Ever use Exporting to achieve printing?

	Very few people need printing from the PDA directly; as such it
must be low on my priority list. Few people have an IR or bluetooth
printer around. I get 1 message every 4 or 6 months asking for printing
from the PDA, while I get 50 a day for other things. (This however I
expect to grow over the next while, as we push more and more into business
amrkets, and ask the business markets get mroe into wireless)

	Of course, you can always export to memo or DOC and print from
those.. theres dozens of appliactions which can print to IR from those
formats. Thats always been the avenue I've pursued for printing, due to
the limited audience.

	PDAs are about mobility, and very few people have a printer where
they are, or on the road. As such, PDA people who print is a very small
minority of PDA users in general (from statistics, not guesses). 99% of
PDA owners will print from the desktop application. However, what is
interesting is it is a changing trend.. as more and more IR and bluetooth
devices get out there, peripherals are starting to catch up. Bluetooth
hard drives for remote data stores, phones that can IR print, etc. Most of
this is going on in Europe, but is coming over to the US and Canada slowly
these days..

	So I think things will change over the next year or two, and I do
intend on looking into PrintBoy and other toolkits in awhile, once OS5
settles down (who knows what printing options will be available for OS5 in
a while). I do have a growing segment of print folks, and I do not intend
on letting them hang.

	Hope the exporting can help you out. If you need a better export
format, let me know and I can work on that.

	Expand Links and Collapse Links are only available from the List
View screen, link arrow. The link arrow shows up on the right hand side
like this "->", but only if you've not turned it off. (A custom View lets
you not include the link arrow, but all the built in views have it).

Links, depending.

Hanging head, I hadn't found the "Export" function in the PDA.  Now that
I've dug it out, I will experiment.  Exporting to pEdit if the proper
data goes over is an acceptable solution.  If I just RTFM, maybe I can
stay in the Shadow after all ...

This is what I find surprising ... that so many people are entering data
for their own enjoyment (?) without any need to share this data with
others.  My own experience, both DT and PDA, is the exact opposite.  I
seem to always have to print or fax.

	PDA's are generally personal; but when data sharing is needed it
usually is done through the desktop (email, etc).

	Can you get a bluetooth interface for printers I wonder?

	The developer has to build a print system, so its a lot of work.

I've tried it both ways to no avail. Also Ive tried "locking" a 
setting different than the defaults by checking "set as default" but 
the settings will revert to the defaults and the checkbox will have 
cleared itself, even though I left it checked.

	That is correct behaviour; when you check "set as default" and
then hit OK, the settings become the default. Next time you open it up,
you are now defining either new temporary settings, unless you check them
to be set as default.

	Do a fresh sync so everything is all clear and the current temp
settings are all used up, and then go into it, set it up differently, set
as default and hit OK, then go back in, and the checkbox shuold be
cleared, however the values shuold be the same.

Personally, if I'm in the office I would prefer to hotsync and print
from the pc, either from SP-DT or export to a text or word editor for
better formatting.  Don't ever expect SP-PDA to have full print
formatting capability.

Can't really figure out why would ever want IR link in office.  For
laptop, prefer wireless LAN connection for much faster 2-way (in future,
probably Bluetooth).

My IR is all for field use where the PDA is on it's own.  SiPix mini
printer is especially great because of it's tiny size.  Yep, not for
fast, full page size, or high production ... but perfect for the "get
by" pass out temp hard copy until I can get back to the office and get

In my professional life the PDA is a field data acquisition and
reference tool that I can use to present a checklist to be checked,
dated, and remarked; and to enter field notes and report text to be
edited and formatted once I return to the office.  Of course the PDA
also serves as a portable reference to my contacts and calendar, but
that's a separate issue and not involved with the need for printing.

When engineer's take paper notes on pads or in field notebooks, they can

	No, I mean.. each developer ahs to build a lot of code to
interface to PrintBoy or PalmPrint or the other systems; they dont'
magicly know how to read Sahdow files, nor format them for printnig, and
Shadow can't magicly know how to talk to these print solutions or provide
intrerfaces for pritn options etc. So adding print support to a Palm
applciations is quite an extensive undertaking..

	(without even thinking about writing a new print system, which
would be suicide :)

	You mean you cannot find the uninstaller, or cannot operate it for
some reason?

	ie: It should be in Add/Remove programs as soemthign to do with
Codejedi.

	If it fails, you can always just delete all the files where you
had it install them, and remove ShadowPlan2.dll (do a file find for it ;)

as you said, that is your personal preference for your use...
for me, when I am not at or near my desktop that has the desktop version, I would love the ability to be able to print to another printer, or to just print instead of having to go startup and run my desktop program.  many times I just want a hard copy of what I have to jot notes on or work at changes from a larger view, and thus printing from the pda would allow that.  since many are beginning to use shadowplan as their ONE all inclusive planner, printing from it would seem to be the next step!  my thoughts.

I am also new to Shadow Plan and use it for projects at work. I very 
much would like to share some of my lists with co-workers or print 
for my own use from the desktop.
Ideally, the desktop version will have more of the functionality of 
the Palm, much like HanDBase.  I would like to print out a filter of 
the list -- this would allow me to use one master list for all 
organizing and then filter out what I need for others or for myself 
in a given situation.

I think Shadow Plan is so powerful that it would be a formidable 
desktop program if the desktop component had more features.

Congratulations on creating a wonderful program.

but do remember this Jeff, from what i can see most new printers are putting in the IR capability, and seems the new OS 5 pda's will have bluetooth installed, the capability to install it, etc.  these inclusions are right around the corner, and the more ahead of the game you are it seems the more people will come to your product and give it better reviews!!!
just a marketing thought...of course, i don't have to do the work.  ; )

Subject: Sorting within an item

 
My question: If an item in a list is selected, and you expand items, only 
that item will be expanded to show its sub-items (not the whole list) - is 
there a way similarly to *sort* a single item's sub-items?

My reason: One of my list is for "Books". It includes a top-level item, 
"Authors", that I want to keep sorted alphabetically.  However, there are 
other top-level items that I do not want sorted alphabetically (eg: the 
sub-items for the classics are "Bible", "Greek", "Roman", "Middle Ages" and 
"Renaissance", that I want kept in that chronological order). If I sort 
"Authors", even with just that top-level item selected, the whole list 
(top-level items and their sub-items, and sub-sub-items, etc) are sorted 
alphabetically - it can get very confusing!

I suspect I am missing some simple setting or procedure (that's always been 
the case when I've posted to this list in the past!) but I can't find an 
answer in the manual, so I am throwing myself on this group's mercy again!!

Subject: Weighting

 
I'm a fairly new ShadowPlan user, but I've already got practically all my
organization in it. It's a great program. I understand that it was developed
as a to-do list replacement with a lot of emphasis on dates. But it is so
flexible that with the idea of assigning a value to each item I think I
could do so much more with it. I know there's been talk about this before,
but I really think it would be a such a useful and simple addition that I
want to add my vote here.

All I need is to be able to assign a value to each item, and the present the
sum of the values in the parent. I can think of so many uses for this
feature:

1. Project planning. I have to plan medium and large sized projects. I
divide the projects into tasks. If I could assign a value to each item
(usually, number of hours) I could do great project planning with Shadow,
summing the hours in the parent.  If checked items aren't included in the
sum I could even know how many hours are left as the project proceeds.

2. Budgets. When I'm doing shopping or planning large purchases, it would be
great to be able to put a value in each item and then know the total value.

I'm sure others can think of lots more uses.

What do you think?

But I think the OR groups would function better if they were AND

Just see what solution is easier to implement, Jeff. Either one

There are two ways that I can think of.  One way is to select one of the
sub-items, then in the sort dialog box check the option "Sort Selected
item's level only."  The second way is to turn on the title bar, zoom inside
the item you want to sort, then tap the corresponding title by which you
want to sort.  There's one major difference between the two methods.  If you
use the title bar quick sort, it sorts items at the current level and
sub-levels.  The option in the dialog box lets you sort *only* at that
item's level.

Is there a way to change the black color used to highlight items?

I have played around with 'khroma', a program that lets you select the
color for various user interface objects, but can't find anything that
will effect the color that Shadow uses to highlight the currently
selected item.

Or maybe Shadow lets me control this already, but I haven't found where?

Or maybe this is a coming attraction?

	Don't worry, once we get the MAc OSX side a little settled down,
we'll be focusing on desktop feature growth. Filtering, better printing,
etc, are all on the todo list :)

	Sure; select a subitem and do a Sort with the checkbox set to sort
only that level.

	Hmm. You could manually number the titles (stick "A. " or "B. " or
the like in there) and then an alpha sort would work. But you couldn't use
auto-numbering, since that is dynamic.

	Actually, the goal was to be a good list application; it just so
turns out that being a great list program makes you a good ToDo
replacement too :)

	Weightings are on the priority list fairly high, fear not.

	You can fake it now using (say) Tags, but you couldn't get parent
summation this way. But it would work for record keeping.

	Thats an interesting requirement -- ignoring checked. I suppose
that would have to be a list option.. remind me about that later :)

Subject: Re: Managing Tags

 
Actually, I am trying to assign, say, 5 tags to 200 items BUT the 5 
tags are a varying subset of about 42 tags total. It isn't just a 
bulk tag assignment. Up until you implemented tags, I maintained 
multiple To Do lists (Admin, Computer, External House, Internal 
House, Auto, Personal, etc.) Inside the lists were top level events 
such as Repeating Items, Infrequent Items, Summer, Winter, Spring, 
Fall, etc. Since reading the manual regarding Tags and Filtering, I 
figured I'd try to combine all or most of these lists into one and 
use Tags and Filters to view different subsets of To Do items. I 
first created about 42 tags such as @Home, Monday, Spring, etc. and 
grouped them into categories (Time-based, Place-based, People-based, 
etc.) for ease of selection. Now, as I move groups of To Do items 
from my old lists into the new MegaList(!), I find I need to assign 
various combinations of the available Tags to the items. One item 
might need the External House, Spring, Summer, Fall, @Home tags while 
another might get Internal House, Repeating, Fall, Winter, Spring, 
and @Home tags. My suggestion for a 2-dimensional item-tag grid was 
an attempt at being able to depict and control the items and their 
tag situation (which are assigned, which are not) in a visually 
useful manner. Just an idea whose time may not have arrived!

Oh, I've never used any desktop outlining software in my life. Did 
someone else already think of this idea?

Thanks,

	How is your Megalist working out? :)

	Mass-tagging sounds pretty interesting ot me; I'm thinkign your
tag-grid is ambitious, but may not solve your problem; imagine having 42
tags across .. impossible. So you'd have 5 or 6 categories of tags, with 5
or 10 tagsin each.. so you'd be scrolling left and right a lot, and
changing ctaegories a lot. It could help, but I'm not sure it would help
*well* :)
	We'll see. Its a very good idea, but lots of work :)

	Ahh. Thats locked in as black for various OS happy reasons. One of
these days I'll build a subsystem to handle a nice background colour
changer, but its actually reasonably complex due to the way the OS handles

	Its possible, but not "easy" per se (but not hard either). The OS
doesn't provide a multiple-selection widget :)

	Right now I'm focusing only on the OS5 highres side, 5-way
controller, virtual grafitti, and handera highres, and then back to the
Mac OSX alpha stability. Not getting adventurous on the handheld yet :)

Not as such :)  The only extension manager that I know of that works under
OS5 is TealMaster.  It doesn't handle trapping FldHandleEvent, however,
which, unfortunately, ShadowLink uses.  I can change it to trap a
TealMaster-compatible event and see how that works.  That's really not a
good solution, however, as TealMaster is not freeware and I'd like to keep
the use of ShadowLink totally cost-free.  I'm looking into making ShadowLink
not dependent on an extension manager and that might be the route to go.  In
any case, I don't have an OS5 unit (and won't get one) so any testing beyond
the OS5 Simulator will need volunteers.

Some time ago, Jeff, you asked if we would like a drawing
component and got almost no response. At the time I thought, what
a silly idea ;-) But now, a drawing note that synched... yes,
please!

More than that, I want to be able to draw on the handheld, and
import graphics from other programs on the desktop. Imports from
bmp, gif, jpeg, and tiff would be great. 

BTW: Add my vote to a weighting column/field when you get back to
the handheld, please. 

Also, on the handheld, I still add tags most commonly when
creating an item by using the <links> button. For me, it makes
sense to do any date, todo, address, and tag links all at once.
Without tag categories and the sticky tab (address/memo/tag),
this is a very inefficient process for multiple tags!

And, still on the handheld, add times to the dates for target
date, at least, for adding meetings to the datebook, and the
alarms you were talking about a while ago.

Thanks for the desktop progress, I am enjoying shadow more than
ever!

Time and time again, people have asked Jeff and Jeff has asked people about what kinds of dates to include in the date popup. Right now it's 'No Date', 'Yesterday', 'Today', etc. 
How about creating another 'page' in the General Preferences where a Shadow user could enter a date title and then a +/- value to indicate how many days from today the target date should be moved. Or simply import a properly-formatted and specially-named Memo when necessary? 

For example, the existing choices would be -

Yesterday = -1
Today = 0
Tomorrow = +1
+1 week = +7

'No Date' and 'Choose Date', the other choices, would be included by default, as could the oft-requested 'Beginning of next week' but with a shorter name (Nxt week?) and based on the global datebook first day-of-the-week pref.

Finally, this could be a way to let people decide how many date types they want depending on how many they define in their list.

Subject: Shadow Tags in shadow-xml

 
I'm interested in trying to parse Shadow XML using the weblogging 
tool Radio Userland. (I like the idea - perhaps too ambitious for my 
limited scripting skills - of using Shadow's outliner as a weblogging 
tool on my Palm, then using Radio's XML handling tools and the 
MetaWeblog API to take the resulting XML file and post it to my 
weblog automagically...!)

What would be really useful would be to get meaningful tag names into 
the XML - at the moment the tag attributes just seem to be some kind 
of number (a timestamp?). That way I could assign a tag attribute of 
say, "Title" to the title of a weblog post, and place the item as a 
child to the actual post data (which would be inside a "Note"). Other 
components of a weblog posting (as per RSS 2.0) could also be tagged 
in Shadow with their name - things 
like "Link", , "Category", "PubDate" and "Source" etc.

Alternatively, where on the desktop does a key to the tag attributes 
live? Or maybe (as always) there's another, better way to skin this 
cat?

cheers

I found a simpler solution. I'm just going to put all level 1

The only problem is that my level 1 is actually at level 3, so 
when I send the items from list to list (using "Send Clip to

guess you can't have everything. I'll just have to cut and paste 
each item at the top of my list into into its apporpriate level 
in the list. Actaully this is kinda hand caz I can priorize each

Thanks for explaining the filter options. Now I know it

	ShadowLink likely won't work under OS5, though I've not tried it.
As Ling mentions, TealMaster tries to simulate some limited few mechanisms
for Hacks, but I've not looked to see which ones.

	OS5 supports a new system to allow things like Hacks, so
ShadowLink will need to get rewritten for that, if its doable and if Link
wants to do it :) Ask her nicely :)

	The new system is pretty good in a lot of ways.. ie: Hacks worked,
but not really well, and more by luck and convention than anything
else. OS5 tries to standardize how that works, in a simple way that should
depend less on Hack authors playing with voodoo. Its still young, so
doesn't support what all Hacks need, but it shoudl support most Hack needs
quite well.

	So I imagine its possible to write something like ShadowLink, or
at least quick DA-launcher type hacks like MCPhling. Just a matter of
time.

	"not get one"? Holding out for OS6? :)

	The Simulator ought to be sufficient for that sort of thing; it

	yeah; I do intend on adding "hints" to various fields; ie: The
dates are in Palm Time Epoch, but I might add a field like "<hint
Dec-21-2002>" or the like, to make parsing easy.

	The Tag number is actually the Unique ID for the Palm Record in
the ShadowTags file on the handheld.

	I suppose a brute force way of doing it before I get to the above
would be to make an item for each tag, then write the tag name into the
text field, and then link to the right tag. So then you could sync the
file, and see in the XML essentially: "Home" "1234567", and know that Home
is that number. Then assume that number in your translation script?

	(ie: The number will never change, even across device resets and
reinstalls)

Yeah, I'm looking into the notifications system now.  Looks like fun.  I'll
have to add stuff an extension manager used to do for me, like enabling
after a soft reset, but it doesn't look too hard.  We'll see.

I had previously requested this, respecting the lines already
established by DateBk5. I really think this is a low-hanging fruit kind
of addition, and hope you will consider it closely Jeff. I think that if
you believe 99% of users will define the same ones, then we should
perhaps stop discussing this (to me, rather obvious) idea and get it
implemented! ;)

Heh.  Palm programming is a hobby for me.  My Clie is just 1 year old.  No
way I can justify upgrading now.  By the time I'm ready for the next PDA,
it'll probably be OS7 :)

By the way, Shadow 2.6.3 runs fine with the release ROM in the Simulator,
but borks all over with the debug ROM (DR12).  Is this your experience as
well?  Or do I not have some settings right?

	Yeah, I sort of like the new system. Seems nice and simple, though
a little lacking. More priorities woudl be nice, and priority standards so
people know how to chose them. And it seems some notification handlers can
swipe events from other handlers of different priorities.. so a badly
written hack can kill the whole system. But its a step in the right
direction.

	The real trick becomes.. now Hack authors need a configuration
screen of their own; sonce notifier handlers can handle their own gig,
theres no Hackmaster type UI to enable/disable individual extensions, and
do we want people to go to 10 different extensions to enable or disable
them in a different way each time?

	We'll see how it pans out :)

	I've got banked up all those messages from a few months ago.

	Its the "limited time" problem ;) When you've got a few hundred
todo items you have to pick and choose carefully :) Right now we're being
taken up by the "broad stroke" changes (like OSX, etc). Once those things
all settle down, we can get to the little things and plow through some of
them.

	Correct.

	Read on if you're interested in developer hacking ;)

	To make apps OS5 friendly is a little or a lot of work depending
how naughty you are; writing direct to screen is a guaranteed way to break
an app from OS4 going to OS5.. use the APIs, or update for OS5. Shadow
however has always been very faithful to the Palm API's and standards, and
I closely tracked the OS5 news so make sure Shadow would be first to work.
It looks like you can go back about a year and Shadow will still more or
less work fine in OS5 :)

	However, theres one thing I never bothered to fix, since I know
PACE would cover for me, and I've not had time. Its a little thing, but
something I'll change a bit later. It just too dardned conveniant to give
up easily.. makes the code really ugly to change it to how it should be ;)

	The Palm OS API includes a type "RectangleType" for holding
regions (x, y, width, height). It is used for clipping regions, gadget
sizing, you name it. Forms, Gadgets, etc, all include a bounding box in a
RectangleType.

	Since I jump through hoops to resize and move gadgets around by
device, resolution, scrollbar presence, and lots of options, my engine is
pretty tight with the OS. One thing it assumes is that it can read these
RectangleTypes from all over the place.. it just assumes it can look into
the main gadget and see how big it is, for instance. In (I think) OS4.1
SDK they started to really push towards you not doing this, but I knew the
PACE guys were already supporting Rectangle reads in OS5, so I didn't
sweat it. Also, they never provided an API/Glue routine to peek where I
needed to peek...

	Why? Because I've got piles of references to rectangles. And I
can't just use a macro which changes a direct read into a function call
and direct read, since I use many rectangle reads in each function, for
different rectangles.. so its actual development work to change them all
:)

	So, in short, the Sim complains about me poking around in
Rectnalges a lot. Thats the only time I ignore the rules. I also know PACE
directly supports it.

	I expect to change it in awhile, but not just yet. Too much to do
:/

	Since the Release Sim doesn't warn about things that PACE accepts,
you'll find no warnings in Release.. Shadow honours all the Release rules,
and as such works out of box for OS5 :)

Yes Ling!  I have both OS 5 and Teal Master, thus would LOVE a version that works in that set up.  Thanks for your work.

  Okay, I got a version that works with TealMaster under OS5.  I still want to
  make it independent of an extension manager, but at least we know ShadowLink
  will work under OS5.
