Just a UI gripe...

Part of the Aqua guidelines suggest that when using sheets to report information, the user choices should be action words and not simple yes/no. I'm writing this because when I went to close the iJournal 1.49 window, it popped a sheet saying:


"Entry has not been posted. Close and lose any changes?

No/Yes"

Something I suggest that would be more to the Aqua guidelines:

"This entry has not been posted. Closing this window will cause you to lose any changes.

Don't Close / Close"

I like the three options. It would be nice to be able to close the window like in any other app, and still be able to post your entry (just like saving your document) in the process.

This brings up a feature I've been waiting for a while, being able to save drafts of entries... as in, if the feature existed, it would be nice to have Cancel / Close / Post / Save As Draft. :)

Yep
Three options is better; and less wording would have to change if saving drafts were available. Now we need is for that feature to magically implement itself.
