A couple notes and suggestions



I started using RedNotebook a while ago and thought I'd make a couple
notes to the original developer. Please correct me if I have made any
mistakes as this is my first time using a mailing list.

- If a tag is being updated or created on a particular day, I think
  searches on its category, text or tag should be updated.
- There should also be a way to assign shortcuts to insertion and
  formatting. In addition, I think perhaps the format button should be
  able to format selected tags as well as selected text.
- When the annotate button is selected or if a search is made, I think
  the previously selected annotation or search category should be
- Is there a reason for a drop down menu when clicking Template, Insert
  or Format?
- I have set my desktop environment to display text in whiteish and the
  background in blackish. The tag highlighting is yellow, which does
  not agree with the white text very well. I don't think this is a
  large issue, but it would be nice to have the option to change
  highlighting colour.
- A bug I noticed; I haven't really wanted to retry since I did it, but
  when I had RedNotebook maximized, and I dragged the resize bar
  between the search and the journal area all the way to the right, it
  froze my desktop. I'm not sure this can be really fixed or if it
  happens in desktop environments other than xfce, but you might make
  the areas have a minimum size.

I look forward to any updates to the software; I plan on already
extensively using this software.
