Subject: hiding checked items?

 
Hi folks,
I'm a relative newbie to Shadow, but I really like the program, especially 
with recent desktop improvements. Discovered you all while doing some 
online research about David Allen's "Getting Things Done," but we won't go 
into that. Let's just say I'm very happy to have found Shadow.

I have a fairly simple question. Is it possible to have checked items 
disappear from view, as they do (or can) in the Palm ToDo app? I realize 
there are all kinds of issues once you start working in a multi-tiered 
environment, which is why Shadow is so cautious/picky about deleting 
anything (whether parents or children). But I also find it awkward to have 
all those checked items cluttering my lists, and there's no shortcut/quick 
method of getting rid of them apart from the menu (and no command shortcut 
- I often use my Palm keyboard).

Any advice / help?

Thanks, and great program!
Geoff

Yes it is. Pick the menu option Tools > Manage Filters, choose Built-

hidden.

Made a little mistake there: you should tap Apply instead of Done to 
activate the filter.

	Welcome to the forum :)

	Sure thing; you're looking for Filters, which are available under
the List pulldown menu as well as the [F] top-right popmenu. Just pull up
the Filter Manager and find the filter you like and hit "Apply". There is
a built-in filter for checked items (to show or hide them), and you can
construct your own filters to do this and other things (though
constructing filters is an advanced topic.. see the Reference Guide for
details).

	Once you get the hang of filters, they're a snap; its two taps to
disable or re-enable the filter, so its pretty easily done. (ie: Using the
[F] top right popmenu.. there is a Remove Filter option if a filter is
active, and after doing that you can re-enable the last filter just as
easily from the same place)

	Cheers!

Ah ha! Jeff, you see that!!! I'm not the only one who intuitively 
goes to the wrong place to activate a filter. I still say "Apply" 
should be in the place that is now occupied by "Done" and "cancel" 
should replace "done" functionality and go to the right of apply. 
Just a minor issue actually but one that hangs me up almost every 
time! (Though I've been trying to reprogram my brain on this one)

Jeff,
The different numbering system is just a little disconcerting. I 
don't fell that it is necessary to address. I don't have a particular 
answer if you decided to do something, however if you did I don't 
know that the best answer is listed in the poll. You're a creative 
kind of guy -- maybe there's something not currently done by any 
other app that would work. I think what would be ideal is something 
that allows the user to feel confident about having the latest 
versions of each component (i.e. HH, DT, conduit) without extensive 
searching on the web site. In other words something, that is clear 
from the #ing shown in the Help>About or displayed while the conduit 
is doing it's thing. Something that ties each component together, 
displays the overall evolution of ShadowPlan AND the evolution of 
each of the components too.
Maybe a tall order, I don't know. Again, I don't think it's necessary 
to address.

	Its bugged a couple of people, so if its an easy fix, we'll take
it :)

	I did think about somethign in the About menu or dekstop and
handheld which says the versions its "rated for"; ie: Handheld 2.6 would
say "Rated for desktop 1.2.5" and vice versa. But this is something that
would bound to be forgotten to update when I assemble distributions.. so I
hate building in things I know I'll forget sometime ;)

	We'll see. We'll come up with something :)

	Really, I just need to add a function to the desktop so it can
check for updates and install whatever is newer. Then it wouldn't matter..

Subject: Unlinking checked items

 
One of the things I use Shadow for is project management (go figure). Those lists are my 'always link new items to ToDo' lists, this way I can follow via the Palm Desktop. Once an item is completed and checked, I'm not interested in deleting it on Shadow but I am interested in it no longer appearing on the Palm Desktop. For this to happen I would need to sever the link every time an item is completed. Would it be possible to set a list pref 'Delete ToDo Link on checking' or something of the sort? Right now I need to Filter Checked Items, switch Views to Flat and then untap all those little Ts until I go crazy :) Which isn't so bad, but things could be even better.

thanks

Jacob

Subject: Re: Shadow Plan 2.6.7 Beta Released!

 
Jeff,

I played around with FontBucket a little, and found that I could put 
the program file on my CF card using Handera's Autocard.  With no 
actual fonts installed, I still get all the Handera fonts in Shadow -
and effectively no hit to my memory.  Then, since I was really just 
interested in smaller fonts for Shadow, I deleted all the FontBucket 
fonts except 4 (Arial 10 and 11 point, standard and bold).  This 
gave me everything I needed font support for and my Fontbucket 
database (which must reside in RAM) is only 15k. 

Long way of saying, time spent adding built-in support for the 
Handera fonts is probably time spent better elsewhere - like making 
the C/F/V buttons bigger in hi res :-)

Now that I can use these little fonts, I think there's room for that 
miscellaneous field we've talked about...

Thanks again.  I fear support for the Handera API will fade out 
given their device's sales volume and the move to OS5 so I really 
appreciate your commitment to what is probably a pretty small part 
of your user base.

Jacob,

I don't know of any direct way to do this.  But until Jeff puts
everything anyone ever wanted into Shadow... ;)

I have a "work-around" for this.  Archive your completed ToDos from
the standard database.  I do this manually in Outlook, just sort,
filter, highlight and move to a separate "pst" file I have for the
purpose.  I'm assuming there is a parallel in the Palm DT.

This effectively deletes the ToDos from the database.  When you sync
next, Shadow sees these as broken links and will clean them up for
you.

One caveat.  Be sure you don't have any broken links before you purge,
otherwise you'll let Shadow clean links that should have been
repaired.

	Maybe. I've not decided yet. I first need to allow custom filters
to be used as hilight filters, and then we'll see.. its mostly a
performance issue.

Subject: Non-synchronisation of HH and DT

 
I am using a registered version of Shadow (HH: v.2.6.7 registered; DT: 
v.1.2.5 registered; conduit: v.2.0.0)

I have created a list on the HH (called "Export from Shadow") and set it to 
sync with the DT (in Lists\Preferences by checking "Sync"), but it doesn't; 
I have also amended lists on the DT, but the amendments do not get carried 
over to the HH

The conduit is set to sync, with the HH over-writing the DT in cases of 
conflict. However, synchronisation is not actually taking place: the DT 
version of "Export from Shadow" is empty; the changes to lists on the DT 
are not carried over to the HH, and vice versa.  The latest HotSync log reads -

	I'm not entirely sure what you mean; ie: If stuff is offscreen,
you coudl scroll down to it, page down to it, or collapse items to make it
visible. Make sure you're using the public beta from the frontpage of the
website, which makes collapsing/expanding a little less fudgey. If you've
not disabled the scrollbar, it makes things easy.. just tap to scroll down
a little or a lot at your leisure..

Subject: Off-topic: Anyone up for alpha testing non-Shadow related?

 
I've got a game proof of concept demo I'll need to alpha in a day
or so. I figured I might as well offer it to you guys.. we've all been
trhough the fire already so why not keep up the fun? :) Nothing really
exciting, but pretty cool.

	Caveat: Only works on Tugnsten T and Sony NX70 .. OS5 and ARM
power required. Expect a reset or two (no data loss). Older untis need not
apply (sorry, this needs serious horsepower).

	If you're interested reply to me personally (not to this
list. This isn't Shadow related, but a new Codejedi product)

Would those be bad for the payer, the payee or both? Paul Nevai 
(pedit and LapTopHack developer) pushes PayPal as his preferred 
method of receiving payments. Is he misinformed?

	I've heard bad stories; I cant' say whethor they're substantiated
or not, but they were enough to scare me. For both seller and buyer. I
won't go into details, since that wouldn't be right. I suggest poking
around yourself :) (ie: see www.paypalsucks.com or whatever it is :)

	Hmm. Thats a toughie. Did you try a larger font? (ie: By default,
hi-res is a tiny font. You can use the built in larger font, and its a
little better to work with)

	They do, but the tap area (vertically) increases with the font
size, making them easier to hit :)

Subject: Beta 2.6.8!

 
I've got a 2.6.8 version that has a new feature I've called
"theming".. you can specify the colour schemes for the list view. It works
flawlessly for most people I think, but a couple of people have reported
some colour painting oddities.. so I think its time to beta and get more
input and try and narrow in one what the problem could be..

	Get it here:

	http://www.codejedi.com/shadowplan/shadow-test/shadow268a.zip

	If you have a colour unit, go to the global prefs and hit Next a
couple of times.. for most people the Theme Prefs panel will be the 3rd
panel. (Only shows up for colour units).

	For Clie's, you must be in high-res mode with Shadow
itself.. Shadow won't let you use themes in low-res or high-res-assist
mode due to Sony OS bugs which crash the unit (their bad, not mine).

	So try out the theming.. set up colours how you like them. Try
tapping up and down the list to select and deselect numerous items in a
row, open and close lists, scroll around, make new ones.. all the normal
routine.

	Let us know of any oddity you see. It should work more or less
as it does now, except you can play with colour more :)

	It doesn't theme the file selection screen yet.

	Notes:

	If a list is only half a screen long, the rest of the screen
should still be white. Let me know if this is otherwise.

	One person reported seeing the theme painting showing up behind
some of the buttons on a Clie. Let me know if you see anything like this.

	One person with a Clie reported seeing the wrong paint being used
for items as he tapped down the screen. Let me know i you see this.. I'd
really liek to know which OS version and unit it occurred on :)

	When an item is selected, its autonumber will temporarily look
like its a zero. That'll be fixed in the release.. this is a beta after
all ;)

	Let me know how it goes :)

	AFAIK this version works very well, though there could be oddities
on some particular model of Clie or the like, perhaps. Thats what I need
to find out :)

Jeff,

Been off for awhile - been too busy setting up my own business!  
managed to pick up v.2.6.0 when it came out.  Checking the list out 
today,  See lots of new updates but seems to be focused on OS5 etc. 
etc. 

I am still using a IIIxe with OS 3.5.3.  For now I don't need the 
colour, hi-res etc.

My question is - do I get anything out of the updates?  I see some 
drag and drop updates but that wasn't a problem for me (hardly used 
it :)

Thanks.

BTW - any way to print on DT with just the list and not all the 
additional info - start date etc. etc.

For those of you using ShadowPlan and the GTD system, can you tell me

Jeff,

After installing 2.6.8, I see a noticeable lag when I click on an
item. Each time I click on another item there is a short pause before
it's selected. This occurs whether or not I've made any changes to the
color themes. I'm using a IIIc. Yes, I now it's old but I never saw
this lag before. I just reinstalled 267a and the lag isn't there.

Any optimization that you need to work on? Otherwise, this may be too
much of a performance hit on older machines.

Subject: More about filters and menus

 
Thanks for the helpful replies about using filters to hide checked items. 
Should have seen that myself. Having the filter button at the top is much 
faster than using menus (more on this below). Several more questions

1. Is it possible to combine, or otherwise customize, the built-in filters? 
Say I want to see this week's target items (or any other selection), but 
hide the ones that are already checked? Some of the built-ins are pretty 
easy to recreate inside a custom filter, but others are more complex, and 
they don't show their actual definitions

2. Is there any way to navigate the menus using either a Palm keyboard 
(e.g. cursor keys) or even the graffiti pad? I'm finding my aim on 
activating menu items is terrible. (I fear it may be my machine/screen, 
which is a hand-me-down Palm III that is, otherwise, in good shape) About 
half the time the menu disappears, and the other half I get something I 
don't want. I use shortcuts / command keys, but not all functions have them.

BTW, thanks, Jeff, for the tip about up/down strokes for moving items on 
the list. I was just going to ask about the graffiti equivalent of those 
buttons. It's mentioned in the manual, but "swipe up" and "swipe down" were 
less clear to me than your email explanation of "up/down" and "down/up" so 
I hadn't been able to get this to work for me. Also, is there (likely to 
be) a keyboard equivalent of the same - maybe one of Ctrl/Shift/Alt with 
the cursor keys?

	How much lag are you talking? Milliseocnd or second?

	With the new theme code, an item must be "redrawn" rather than
just "reversed". Its a little slower, but the speed to draw a single item
shoudl be pretty fast. Ahh, I suppose theres possibilities of lag in that
we have to lock down the icons to render them (from the sresources), and
perhaps your unit is slow to lock resources. I wonder if the speed of
resource lock varies by the number of files on the handheld or
anything.. hmm..

	again, how much lag? I'll try and look into it a little.

	Anyone else notice anything?

but it'd be "inelegant".

	Do you have col-bg turned off on those lists? (List Preferences)

	It works great on your NR70? If you tap on each item going down
the list, or on every other item going down the list, all is fine? No

	The built ins are not implemented in terms of the custom

Jeff,
I;ve noticed one thing already with 2.6.8 installed:
When I select items in a list my numbering system character is 
changed on that item. My standard numbering system is: "I,A,1" for 
the first 3 levels. Now when I select a "I" item the character turns 
to a period "." When I select an "A" item the character turns to an 
ampersand "@". When I select a "1" item the character turns to an "0".
If I leave the list and then return all items return to their proper 
enumeration symbol.

On my Prism I get a pronounced 3D effect that is incredible! It looks 
like the yellow/black lines are 1mm "higher" than the green/red. 
Pretty cool Jeff!!

However, one other thing I noticed. The theme coloration doesn't 
apply to the enumeration, "expand" triangle, link arrow. This can 
make those characters tough to see with the green/red lines. Anyway 
the theme coloration can be applied to those item characters as well?

Jeff,

The lag is "significant". Since I don't have it installed now I am
guessing. I'd say it was about half a second. That compares to
basically instant response in version 267a.

I'd ask any others with older units to download this version to see if
they get the same (slow) response when going from item to item.

I also have a IIIc, and I also see a bit of a lag, maybe 1/4 to 1/2 of
a second. The other peculiarity I notice is that with come background
colors the forground color of the check box changes from what I have
it set to (black) to something lighter..

	Enumeration?

	Icons aren't easily changable on the fly, so they stay the same
colour always (or should). If you set dark backgrounds, not much I can do

Hi Jeff

On my T615, if I select colour options everything works fine.  
However, with no Col-bg selected and the colours set to default the 
following happens:

1. the selected item colour is black (not blue)
2. the second and subsequent lines of a selected item disappear or 
the font is black on black rather than white on black.

Hi, Jeff.  I working off a Clie T615-C in hi-res mode.  I have the

Shadow.  Themes do the same thing, colors go back to default when I

Hi Sharon

I have tried the following:

1. col-gb on, fonts and themes will stay put after exiting 
completely.
2. with col-gb off, fonts stay put, but no colour at all.

I have Fontbucket installed, but I have X-master and Fonthack 123

Fonthack might have something to do with it.

I'll test some more tomorrow.

Couldn't wait till tomorrow so I tried setting themes with Fonthack 
swithced off and when I had col-bg turned off, everything

With col-bg switched on,  everything was fine even after an exit.  

Changing fonts, same thing.  Nothing with col-bg off and everything

	Yep, thats fixed in the alpha updates and I mentioned it in the

Subject: 2.6.9 oddity

 
Jeff: the color bleed and the disappearing numbering issues seem to
have disappeared in 2.6.9; I'm was having a strange side effect
though: if a list is expanded, completely or partially, and the
"Collapse All" command is invoked, on half my files the second item in
the list wouldn't collapse, and stay open with all its children
visible.  But I've tried to reproduce it a few times, and most often
than not, the collapse command works fine, so I'm not going to pursue
this unless it starts really acting up. I'm on the NR-70 so you may
finally have made the Sony OS bend to your will....Happy Tgiving for
those celebrating!

	Collapse All will not collapse the item which is currently
selected. Its how we decided it shuld be done a few years ago, and we've
left it for consistency, though its a little odd..

	So you had problems where the background paint would show up
behind other parts of the screen (like behind the up/down scrollers in the

Subject: Introduction and Question About Project Management

 
My name is Steve Rabin. I am a principal in a property management 
company. I found Shadow when ver. 1.5 was released and have remained 
current with all updates. Recently, after helping me with a recurring 
hotsync problem, Jeff suggested that I join the discussion group. 
BTW, the new conduit is 100% stable and Jeff does a fantastic support 
job :) For the past month I have been reading the daily e-mails and 
find the discussions informative and insightful.

I am interested in using Shadow to improve my effectiveness managing 
projects. I recently became enlightened to the power of sorting and 
have delved into tags and custom filters. I have created 7 business 
categories.  One of the business categories is a project management 
category with 8 project list files: business development, human 
resources, management, marketing, project management, capital items, 
maintenance, desk top publishing, curb appeal, research, and 
infotech. The project files contain multiple level one entries that 
are individual projects. A few of the most important projects that 
are work in process exist as separate list files with the details 
expanded into multiple list levels. I am looking for guidance on how 
to use Shadow to organize, prioritize, sort, and track the competing 
dependent tasks of multiple projects. I searched the archive for 
project management threads but did not find any guidance. Should I 
create one large current project list and sort the list items using 
filters and highlights? Should I maintain separate lists and link the 
list items that are dependent tasks to the to do list? Initially, 
filtering 8 different project types and their individual items in a 
master list seems onerous. As a group, your discussions lead me to 
believe that you are interested in using the full power of Shadow to 
maximize your organization and productivity. I look forward to 
receiving any advice you may have on this subject drawing on your 
experiences managing projects with Shadow.

Thanks

Steve

Is there any way to delete ShadCache?  Something's gone horribly 
wrong with this file and I can't get rid.  When I'm backing up using 
BackupBuddyVFS it complaints about this file saying 'Unable to 
transfer ShadCache Database can't find (0x0207)' which means it never 
completes.  I've tried to get rid of it: the LauncherX file manager 
says it's deleting but it doesn't (it also shows the file size as 
183Mb but I guess that's LauncherX's problem!), TealMover does the 
same, and FileZ crashes with a FileOpenDB() error.  Any ideas how to 
remove it?

	Loko back a day or two in the archives here and get the 2.6.8 beta
which has some better transparencies, and the upcomign next beta or
release has better still. LX has bugs with icon management, but our new
OS5 highres icon in current public releases doesn't even have transparency
defined until the betas.

	Whacky. Shadow tries to delete it when you exit Shadow, too.. it
shouldn't persist. Try doing a good reset (not a hard reset, just a
pinhole reset) and then deleting it.

Subject: Shadow & Ecco Pro

 
Jeff - the ability to add multiple "tags" to each item in an outline 
is a fantastic functionality (and one that makes Shadow unique 
amongst all the outliners out there for the Palm). It gives on the 
handheld functionality similar to what used to exist in a marvelous 
piece of Desktop software, which although no longer supported or 
upgraded is still around and has survived for 5 years since it was no 
longer developed - Ecco Pro. An item in an Ecco outline could be 
classified in mutiple folders, causing a single ocurring item to be 
visible in relation to many topics or subjects. Anyone who has used 
outliners as a PIM has heard of this fantastic piece of Desktop 
software.
Netmanage, the owner of the program is now offering it's last version 
as a Freeware download. See: 
  http://www.compusol.org/cs/ecco/
 for more information.

It seems to me that the multiple tags for an item in Shadow would map 
very well to multiple folders in Ecco. Any chance you'd consider a 
conduit to be able to use Ecco as the desktop for Shadow Plan?
Thank you for your time & consideration.

Hello everyone,

I haven't been around for awhile as I have been very busy. I looked 
through the past messages quickly and didn't seem to find an answer 
to this question so Ill pose it here and hope someone can help me. I 
have a storyboard program which I use to storyboard and script client 
videos. I can export the storyboard in many formats. Typically I do 
it as a .csv and then view it on the Sony 710 with Handybase. I would 
like to use Shadow though and make it so I can check off the shots as 
they are done at a location. This would make it much more a in the 
field tool then just being able to read the script. Also, this way I 
could link the items to a to-do with an alarm as well.

The output I have is about 7 fields, Shot Order, Type, Clip Title, 
Dialog, Film Tips, Edit Tips and Length in HH:MM:SS. I would like to 
have it as the Shot Order is the item itself with a checkoff/todo 
link, the rest is indented under the shot order. I can get this into 
excel if that helps but I am not sure how to get excel or anything 
else to output it in a format I can import into ShaowP.

Just in case Jeff still reads the forum, Thanks again for an awesome 
product.

Thanks in advance for any help!

I'm still occasionally getting background painting under the dropdown buttons at the top right.  Still can't seem to find a pattern, though I think it's less than it was with the first theming version.

Set the list so that your items are checklist items, that way you 
can mark them done by tapping on the bubble.

Once your items are all marked off, you can tap menu, edit and 
uncheck all.

Now that we can see exactly what's being synchronized, I noticed that most of Shadow's sync time (long, in my case) is spent working on files that I haven't touched in a long time but that I like to lug around anyway for when I will need them. I thought that if the Conduit saw that a file hadn't been modified, it skipped it and moved on. What's happening?

	I can add to the DOC export reasonably easily. I just need someone
to lay down a useful DOC export layout and get a few people to agree to
it. ie: How should dates be formatted relative to the rest of it? :)

	With some tricks you could do an import into Shadow via Shadow
Desktop. However, you wouldn't be able to do any "synching".. ie: Editting
the storyboard again, and have those changes reflect in Shadows copy, or
edit the Shadow copy and have the changes reflected in your storyboard.

	As a rule, never use PhlegmHack, which has many insidious

	If the list is a "Checklist" view you will have checkboxes down
the left side, one per item. You can just tap once to check the item, and
theres a menu item to "uncheck all" to reset it. If the list is not a
checklist, you can (Advanced topic) add a checkbox to it, or change it to
a Checklist (see the [V] popmenu in the top right of the open list)

	It has to check the file to see if you've set it to synch and if
its been modified as well as clear out any old dead items lieing
around. In general though.. just having the OS open up a file so we can
see if you have th esync pref set takes some time across the wire :/
