Re: Flatpak of Zim 'next' is now available
Thanks for this. Works really really well overall - no crashes so far.
It's nice to see zim with the GTK3 styling accross the board and taking up
the desktop theme. I tested many of the basics, some some day to day use,
and imported some quite complex structured notes with no fuzz.
Tested some basic plugins (TOC, tags, tray icon, backlinks, tables).
So far I only run into fairly minor issues, mainly with the theme. I use
gnome's default adwaita Dark theme Zim picks up the team and overall it's
* links are unreadable (very dark blue/violet over dark gray background)
* "verbatim" text is directly invisible (charcoal over dark gray)
I recall from the early days of GTK3, other apps had the same issues with
the link colors.
* there are problems with the tray icon: right-clicking or left-clicking it
produces nothing (in GTK2, right click brings up a menu, and left click
brings up the app)
* the minimum width of the left side pane is way too large, it eats away a
lot of real state. In the GTK2 version it can be made much narrower. I
notice that the right-side pane can be made narrow (same in GTK3 as in GTK2)
Finally, I noticed that the left pane (Index, Tags, Journal) can be
collapsed with a button in the UI. This is useful - is that a new feature?
