Previous Entry | Next Entry

I've been looking for a new Mac LJ client because Phoenix has crashed on me one too many times, losing a huge entry in progress. I'm test-driving both XJournal and iJournal and neither has quite the feel I'm used to, but I'm adjusting.

However today I noticed something that is a total deal-killer for me with iJournal, and wondered if it is something that is intended to be a part of the software. I had a partially-edited entry going, and went to open another entry window to paste in some links for another entry I intended to eventually write. iJournal asked me if I wanted to save my current entry and said if I didn't, my changes would be lost.

Now, I wasn't trying to close the current window, just open a new one. I have tested this multiple ways but it looks to me like iJournal doesn't allow you to have more than one window open at a time. Is this the case? This is totally bizarre behavior, if that's the case. Phoenix, XJournal, heck even Microsoft Word allow you to open multiple documents and work on more than one thing at a time.

I see that there's some inclarity about whether this client is being actively developed and supported, but if someone can comment, I'd appreciate it. I slightly prefer the interface of iJournal to XJournal (whose mechanism for creating image and text links is a bit wonky) but I'm in the habit of always having at least two journal entry windows open, sometimes more, and not being able to do so would totally kill the program's usefulness. I can't imagine I'm alone in working on multiple entries at once.

Good to know - I guess I'll uninstall it.
