Ruler – and more
I hadn’t noticed that – perfect! And the fact that the setting appears to be persistent means I don’t even need to have a ruler button in the Toolbar! (Although one would be nice…) [grin]
At the risk of sounding too cheeky:
- Take a look at Journler
- Copy everything that it does that EF doesn’t, except for the calendar-focus of the app.
As a sidebar, my search for the app for me has been frustrating at times. I want something that will allow me to combine data pulled form other sources with information created by me, in a way that both benefits from but is not limited by the formal hierachy of a traditional file structure. Three apps – EagleFiler, VoodooPad, and Journler – each cover 90-95% of the problem. But each covers a different 90-95%.
VoodooPad is my current choice, despite the fact that it covers the least amount of what I want, because there are no showstoppers. It allows multiple documents, has excellent import and export features, and handles internal linking, but doesn’t have smart folders at all.
Journler is in many ways the closest to what I want, but cannot reliably handle exporting and then importing into itself, and is limited to only one library. These are huge showstoppers.
EagleFiler, despite not being aimed as a data entry app, falls in between. It has multiple libraries, but only has pre-defined smart folders, limits your ability to put entries in more than one folder and doesn’t handle internal linking well (see one of my other posts today). (Note: I understand that I’m comparing apples and oranges to some degree, and faulting EagleFiler for things arguably outside it’s intended area of use.)
Currently, VoodooPad wins by default, but by a slim enough margin that I don’t jump in with both feet, because I see Journler or EagleFiler as being close enough that I might want ot switch after the next rev comes out.
Regardless of whether EF moves in the direction I’d like, it’s a great app – so great that I can’t help looking at it and say “you know, that peg really does have rounded corners, and that hole isn’t really square, maybe if I just took this here hammer…”
