NewSense: I am talking about running the program on it's own screen, and trying to initiate a second document to open on that screen in addition to the first one, which seems to be impossible as far as I undertand the process of the program, running as one instance, unless you can explain it to me differently, as I am happy to learn if it is possible?
Which MUI 5 feature are you referring to, as there are quite a few? I can see 3 windows, but they seem to each be in their own GUI frame, as though the program has been run/executed 3 times, and the programs put onto the same screen, which is not the same as allowing one execution of the program to then allow futher documents to open within the same execution of the program/screen/GUI - by way of example, such as you get with Scribble which allows a further text to be loaded as an additional TAB in the same GUI, within the single execution of the program, but as the additional TAB as a further spawned frame. Basically all I can say is, you seem to be missing my point, that's all.Quote:
pegasos-sigi2: On every Calimero on this screen you can take a differend work with a different document. What the problem ? You can copy/paste text and whole object groups between one Calimero and all others. This is a MUI feature, and i wont't integrate it a second time in Calimero.
Obviously if you will not consider my sensible request because you don't want to implement it then that is a matter for you, but it would enhance the program's features, but as I say, that is solely a matter for you - I am only asking, and mentioning it because I don't see the feature in Calimero, a feature that is missing which is worthy of mention.
I should also mention that I have re-tried the hyphenation feature, and it is still not working. ** UPDATE **
- I now have the hyphenation feature working - I needed to type some extra words into a previously saved document for Calimero to update the document with the enabled hyphenation dictionary. ** UPDATE **For other users info
: It will require you to go to the Open Office link, supplied in this thread by pegasos-sigi2
for the dictionary, and click on whichever dictionary you want, which then opens in a browser window with the RAW dictionary in a window, so then highlight/select, and copy the page of the dictionary as data, and then transferr it, by way of 'Copy->Paste' to Scribble/NoWinEd or some other Editor, and then save the dictionary as a 77k file, saving it as the same name as on the link in the same format name/wording as for the US and DE version of the hyphen dictionary.
Also, when I try to centre justify a paragraph then I lose the top 2 lines with a red rectangle 'bleeding' into the left margin, and if I right justify the paragraph then I lose all but the top 2 lines, with the same red rectangle bleeding into the left margin area, adjacent to the page area.
The text features of the program really need to be 'knocked-into-shape' - i.e. fixed, before you add more features.
Additionally, when I click on Snapshot a window in Calimero, to save its position and dimensions the program does not save those features of let's say for example, the Settings Window, as when it opens from initial loading you can only see the first letter of each setting, so I extend/increase the size of the settings window, so I can see the title of each setting, and then I click on Save but when I re-open the Settings window it is back to just the first letter of each setting being visible, surely that cannot be as you intend it to work?
Initially when I saved "hyph_en_GB.dic" in the program Settings window, those settings didn't get saved, and it reverted back to the US hyphen dictionary, but somehow I seem to have managed to get it to retain that option for the moment.
You have in the Settings TAB Options, System, but on that TAB there is only one item 'Cpu Usage', with a 'button' with the word 'Level:' in it, but it does nothing, so what is the purpose of it - the System TAB?
Also on the Settings 'Drawing' TAB under Potrace you have an option 'Turdsize', well I don't know what research you've done on the English equivalent of that phrase but it would be like typing in Deutsch/German "Scheiße Größe"! So maybe you need to consider changing the name of that option.
In fact the Settings window has options, but as the window sometimes is too small to see all the options the Save Use Cancel options are out of view, and it is not that obvious how to get to them, as there is no scrollbar on the right hand side, that any user might expect to see in any window/requester of this type, so would be an advantage to add it for everyone's benefit. I know it can be scrolled with a scroll wheel capable mouse, but it is not obvious.
I also notice that clicking on Save, in the Settings window does not then close the window, in fact neither does 'Use', the only one that does is 'Cancel' so that would indicate to a user that they cannot save a feature/setting only Cancel whatever they try to alter to suit their own needs.
I could go on about other shortcomings related to the program, but if you could fix the ones I have mentioned that would be fantastic.
Why other people have not mentioned any/some of these problems with Calimero to you already is beyond me, as you need to know they exist to be able to fix them. Is there anyone doing any Betatesting for you? I will do so if it is of any value to you.
Anyway, I wish you success.
