eclecdec 1.1.73.0

I’ve just submitted eclecdec 1.1.73 to the Store.  A couple of interesting things in this version:

Split screen peek cards

While I like the idea, when I’m writing, to be able to pull up other cards for reference.  What I found, though, was that I often had to flip back and forth between the reference card (in, effectively, a dialog), and the actual editor surface.

Enter split screen.  Peek cards now appear as a pane to the right of the editor (both sketch and rich text).  I’ve found this smooths out my workflow quite a bit.

App Close Confirmation

I’m not sure why it’s such a pain to catch the closing of a UWP application (specifically, I’m talking about the [X] button, which is kind of easy to mistakenly hit with a fat finger).  Certainly WPF applications don’t have this same kind of difficulty.

But really, doesn’t it seem that it should be a given that if you’re working on something and accidentally (or forgetfully) try to close the app that you be given a chance to save your work?

eclecdec 1.1.69.0

The latest version of eclecdec has been submitted and should be available in anywhere from a few hours to a few days.

Changes for this version are bug fixes:

  • Typing in the writing timer dialog added two numbers for reach keypress (fixed by replacing a 3rd party control with my own)
  • Today and Yesterday status only took into account first editing session
  • Crash when stopping the writing timer when it was already paused
  • App close button now prompts to save editing changes (this is an interesting one – see my follow on post)

Like I said, availability depends on the Windows Store approval time, so the new version should appear (at the longest) in a few days.

eclecdec 1.1.68.0

I recently updated eclecdec to 1.1.68.0, with these changes:

Features

  • Add ability to create a new card from a selection, while editing a story card

Bug Fixes

  • Fix a bug where suspending eclecdec while editing a new (unsaved) card can cause the card to be duplicated, resulting in two cards referencing the same content, and preventing deletion of one without deleting the content of both
  • Fix a bug where returning to a previously edited card correctly places the cursor where editing left off, but improperly selects text past the selection
