Re: Tasklist update


Dear Dimitrij,

thank you for your feedback.

1. Thank you for using the tag autocompletion plugin. I merged this into the tasklist plugin, but you won't really see a difference as you can use autocompletion without starting the tasklist. You just need to activate the tasklist plugin within the plugin preferences. Please make sure that the autocompletion plugin is deactivated, as
the same keyboard shortcut is being used. Does this satisfy you?

2. I reviewed my code and tried to find a way to cycle through the list of tags with the tab key, but unfortunately the completion method does not support this out of the box. There might be a way to handle this, but this is currently out of my knowledge. But you can use the tab key instead of the return key as well with the new version now.

3. Yes, this is an excellent idea. I implemented this into the new version. I hope it's ok that you can just double click a tag which you want to replace ;)

4. I'm not sure if you have changed the keyboard bindings? I chose ALT + q for the plugin activation due to the issues I had with ALT GR + @. Please review your bindings and get
back to me.

Dear Murat,

thank you for your great work!

I have some proposals regarding the tag autocompletion plugin:

1. Please make it a standalone plugin again. The autocompletion of tags is also very useful without the tasklist plugin. I tag a lot of my pages and the autocompletion makes this process very convenient. I'm sure, that most Zim users share my point of view.

2. In addition to "arrow up and down" respectively, also "tab" should cycle through the suggested tags in the autocompletion pop-up. This just feels more intuitive. The "tab" key is also used in other programs to complete a suggestion or cycle through them.

3. When a whole word is marked (f.i. by double-clicking on it) while opening the autocompletion pop-up, the selected tag doesn't replace the initial marked word, but is placed before the word. It would make more sense, when the initial word would be completely replaced by the tag.

4. Found the following bug: After invoking the search (Ctrl+F) it's not possible to write an "@" there, when the autocompletion plugin is enabled.

Wishing you all the best!

    Dear zim community,

    please join me in improving the task list plugin. I have
    implemented some additional functionality,
    which you may find useful.

    What is new?

      * The comments which are added to a task (via the task comment
        plugin) are now collected together with the tasks and are
        displayed in an additional column.
      * The tags within a task are now displayed in a separate column
      * You can now tick a task directly within the dialog. As the
        core task ticking functionality of zim is used for this, zim
        switches to the page of the task to be ticked.
        Due to the sorting of the displayed tasks, ticked tasks are
        sorted at the end of the list before they are removed after
        index refresh (within seconds)
      * The dialog is now split into 2 task trees. The second tree
        displays the history of ticked tasks
      * When a task is ticked within the dialog, the tick date is
        stored within the index. This tick date is also displayed
        within the task history tree.
        In addition, I updated the pageview module. With this update
        the tick date is added / removed directly to / from the task
        within your note.
        This date is also collected from the task list plugin and is
        displayed within the task history tree.
      * The print functionality now displays the open tasks with more
        information as well.

    I also included / updated following plugins into the task list plugin:

      * Tag auto completion (Shortcut: ALT + q)
        --> Supports you in adding tags by suggesting existing tags
        --> Removed unwanted frame around the tag entry (within Windows)
      * Task due date (Shortcut: ALT + period)
        --> Supports you in adding a due date to a tag (either plain
        within the text, or with additional entries or as a calendar)
      * Task comment (Shortcut: CTRL + SHIFT + >)
        --> The task can now be commented (together with the date /
        time of the comment)
        --> The task comments string is added in superstring format,
        so it does not stand out so much

    You should deactive / delete the separate plugins if you already
    use them. I will maintain them only within the task list plugin.
