First, a brief introduction:
I’m new around here, still on EF’s trial period. So far, liking it a lot; I’ve been testing all the major players in the informatioin management/gathering field, and EF is quickly becoming my favourite. Its simplicity and power are remarkable. Congratulations, Mr Tsai, for this great piece of software!
And now for a little trouble I’ve been having, concerning the tags autocompletion feature. I’m Brazillian and, as such, my primary language is Portuguese. That means I use a lot of accentuation, such as “é” and “á”. In fact, lots of words begin with an accented character. And here’s where the trouble begins:
I’ve created a tag for “água” (“water”). Now, everytime I start typing a tag beggining with an “a” (no accent), EF will suggest “água”. But suppose I want to write “azul” instead. The thing is: I cannot simply continue to type the word. If I do, the first character (originally an “a”, changed to “á” by autocomplete) will be deleted - leaving me with “zul” instead of “azul”. To get “azul” I must press “esc” after the “a”, dismissing the autocomplete pop-up.
I know it’s a relatively small problem; I know I could select the correct tag using the arrow keys (given that I’ve already used the tag “azul” before). But it disrupts the natural flow of the writing and, as I often forget this little caveat, I end up having to retype a lot of my tags.
So, my question is: can this behaviour be corrected in a future release?
(I also have a few feature requests, but I’ll leave that for when I’ve actually paid for the app…)
Thanks in advance! And congratulations again for EagleFiler!
