Previous Entry | Next Entry

another annoying feature request

If there is unsubmitted text in the entry window, and you tell iJournal to quit, a little "are you sure?" dialog box would be really nice.

(I keep getting a little over happy on the command-Q when I haven't actually submitted my most recent entry yet. Feh.)

This is a built-in feature on Xjournal

Xjournal looked very cool; however, every time I tried to run it on my computer it crashed.

You may have tried a very early version and never deleted the pref file. Go into your pref folder and delete com.xjournal.plist and com.spiers.org.plist (and/or any varient of those two, as i don't have the older file name still on this computer). I would also go into your application support folder and delete the xjournal folder.

Then download the newest version ( I think it requires you have x 10.2.x or newer )

This was three days ago, only one install, on a machine running the latest public release of os X. Perhaps it just doesn't play with some of my other software; I'm not interested in investing more hours trying to make it work when it is hardly mission-critical software. *shrug*

XJournal doesn't log onto LJ clones, so it's a no go for some of us.

Need a new release
Hmm, the version currently in CVS saves any un-posted content when you quit (as well as periodically, if you ask it to) so I guess someone should make a new release soon.

Re: Need a new release
I wasn't referring to the prompt, but I know what you are talking about. I didn't notice that behavior but it should be fixed. I am currently working on some other parts of the project and won't be able to fix this for a while, though.

I was referring to the periodic saving of the contents.

Re: Need a new release
Works for me.. I was able to grab the CVS version and use Project Builder to make it. The auto save function works as advertised. (Yay - no more lost posts because of software updates!)

auto-save, as well
Often I spend a while on writing a journal entry, and I've lost a few due to a command-Q or a unrelated crash. I'm using v1.52 and I would appreciate an auto-save feature where iJournal would load any unsubmitted text into the journal window on startup.

I've seen some discussion here on a History feature, but I don't see it in v1.52 so I'm assuming that's in a development version.
