Note box

Hello,

Would it be possible to add into the JAlbum settings and related to each projects, a note box where we can add our comments on what we have changed into the skin for example or to not forget to do before uploading, etc...

Actually I use an external program where I add by notes, but having this directly into JAlbum will be great.

Have a nice day.

Thanks and regards
Henri

Here's a trick: Add an empty page to your jAlbum project. Put it first among the album objects. Exclude it and write your notes in the description section.

Hi David,

Thanks for the suggestion. I will do it, however a box into the settings would be better.

A good idea. Perhaps it could be added as another tab under the Advanced panel, so it wouldn't clutter up what's already in the UI.

For some of my stuff, I keep separate text files with notes about the project. It works, but it's clunky.

But with my suggestion, you get to see the comments as soon as you open a project, and it doesn't affect the generated album at all.

UI clutter, I guess. I'd prefer not to see excluded stuff in the Explore view.

A minor thing. Your approach works, but my vote is with hspagnolo. ;)

Thanks for the reminder, so you're both fine with a text field to write down notes under Settings->Advanced->Notes ?

I could also add a setting to display the note as a notification when the project is opened

The upcoming release will now have a notes field under Settings->Advanced->Notes. There is also the possibility for the notes author to have a notification hint about the presence of notes when the album project is opened.
