1.46 release 3

So after fixing the Friends view menu option (which broke when I fixed the LJ icon notification, and enough people were upset by the paid mode thumb, that I removed that, put the button back in About, and Kevin fixed the Dock Icon cache issue... that I wanted to go ahead and get this one out. Again, I didn't rev it, because the fixes were pretty minor and only affected a limited few. So go ahead and grab it again if you were affected by the things I mentioned above. Sorry about that. :)

Suggestions

Hitting Tab from Subject box brings you to the text-entry box, but Shift-Tab does not bring you back to the Subject box (but should). While in the Text Entry box, you cannot tab to the Sec: Pic: Journal: Tune: or Mood: objects/boxes - perhaps this should be an optional hot-key, defaulted to option-tab to tab through the items, and when those items are pull-down lists, the arrow keys should activate and then scroll through the list.

A new GUI design (idea) would be moving the pull-downs from the bottom of the GUI to the left of the text entry box, with the selected picture on top of the pull-downs, as an actual picture which is clickable to change/browse other picture options.

I still prefer the clickable "drawer" which all the options hid inside of, this should be brought back and saved as a 'last used' status preference. ie- if the app was quit with the drawer open, it will launch with it open, if it was quit with it closed, it should launch with it open.

The 'future' list includes plans to handle html visually (im assuming rather than raw code), im also assuming this would introduce color/font/size/etc buttons, which would introduce a larger GUI, and for those who don't or shouldn't be exposed to the ability to use html, this perpetuates the logical need for the drawer option to be re-introduced.

deleted entries

a suggestion unrelated to coding (since i can't do it) ... it would be great if after you delete a post or sth the message read "your entry has been deleted" or sth instead of "your entry has been updated." i know the web version still says that so i dunno if that's as livejournal.com thing. but yeah, just in case someone posts an entry that really needs to be deleted and he can read that message as a confirmation.
