raising the qustion since it led me to DayNotez, which I had not encountered. Having
installed it on my T3 as a trial I'm going to buy it as, for me, it is a quite useful
complementary app in concert with peditPro and pToolSet. Which is my point--they are
designed for different purposes and work well together (for me). I wonder whether
Thomas has tried activating pEditTool while in DayNotez, as this gives much, though not
all, of the peditorial functionality of myNotes, while having the multi--category features of
DayNotez; plus, since myNotes is essentially a (specially empowered) memo, myNotes and
DayNotez can mutually be import/exported.
And if this is a useful solution, I wonder whether Paul would consider writing an auto
pEditTool "thingie" for DayNotez as he has done for DateBk5 ? DayNotez already has an
app launch link built in with DateBk5, so it might meet Paul's criterion for a highly stable
endeavor. Maybe this would be more doable and less complicated than Thomas' original
request; but, also maybe not really what he's looking for.... ?? what think ?? JMM
- I do actually like Daynotez. The one thing I don't like about it is
that the Daynotez memos are stored in a proprietary database. The
tempting thing about moving over to MyNotes is that they are memos and
are stored in the standard Palm memo database. It is also appealing
to me to simplify and use pedit to do my journaling instead of
carrying an extra program.
For now I do use the pedittool to enter my Daynotez memos. It would
be great if the autopedit trick could also be applied to Daynotez.
I see your point as well about keeping the memo switching
How about button shifting or button sliding the "}" button to bring up
a list of all the myNotes_XXX memos? That would keep it standardized.
