Just a heads up: there is a beta release of v1.5

And before I start tackling all other issues* - https://github.com/l...ntalist/issues/- I want to release v1.5 as there are a number of changes that could break things, please test it out and report any issues if you find them.

Most important changes:

  • Bundle and Snippet editor are now separated
  • Bundle name can be shown in the search results, as well as colour (fixed for now, could add a color picker later)
  • All details in the https://github.com/l...ev/changelog.md

To test it download:

https://github.com/l...archive/dev.zip

and unpack the zip file, close your current running copy of Lintalist before starting de DEV version
You can copy your bundles to the bundle folder, as lintalist.exe is not included in the download of the source code you might need to copy lintalist.exe as well, otherwise simply start lintalist.ahk (you must have v.1.1.20+)

The "check for updates" option via the tray-menu has been disabled in this beta release.

* incl. new plugins currently being discussed are
- split plugin https://github.com/l...alist/issues/23
- find & replace plugin https://github.com/l...alist/issues/27
- and other items as well https://github.com/l...ntalist/issues/

Feel free to post feedback at GH or here of course.

New features:
 

 

  • Show bundle name in search results and/or use Colour to indicate bundle. Setting: DisplayBundle. Caveat: using colours might cause the Search GUI to freeze or to become unresponsive should this happen simply avoid using a DisplayBundle setting > 1.
  • Set font (typeface) and font size for search results and preview. Setting: Font and FontSize
  • New Bundle editor - editing bundle properties now independent of snippet. Delete a bundle using the editor.
  • minor changes & fixes.
 
 
See release notes https://github.com/l...leases/tag/v1.5  for install & update instructions.
 
Future updates will include:
 

 

  • "foolproof" plugin parsing for better nested plugin parsing.
  • ...

Just a heads up: there is a beta release of v1.6

You can download a new early beta release here:
https://github.com/l...archive/dev.zip

It would be advisable to install this in a new folder and not overwrite your current install of Lintalist. You can copy your bundles to the new folder as well - existing snippets should still work as in previous versions.

Changes

  • new plugin parser - try to "break" it
  • new Split plugin *

More info posted here https://github.com/l...alist/issues/37

* a usage example could be: you select a number of columns in your spreadsheet, copy that to the clipboard and you can now use the split plugin to use each cell and insert that into specific locations in your snippet.

Feel free to post feedback at GH or here of course.

Probably / hopefully last beta release of v1.6 - various fixes and new features including: sorting columns using various methods + quick sort hotkeys and setting the width of columns 1 &  2 - see https://github.com/l...mment-131321555and the https://github.com/l...ev/changelog.md for details.
 
Feedback welcome!

v1.6 is now available. You can use the tray menu, check for updates, to upgrade, or download it manually via https://github.com/l...talist/releases

  • New: Split & SplitRepeat plugins (*1)
  • New: You can now create counters "on the fly"
  • New: Column: width settings for column 1 and column 2
  • New: Column sort settings and quick sort hotkeys
  • Change: improved parsing of nested plugins
  • Change: new options for Calendar and File plugins
  • Change/fix: chaining HTML/MD snippets now allowed
  • Various minor improvements, code refactoring (see changelog for details)

*1 Split & SplitRepeat
The Split plugin creates an "array" of sequentially numbered temporary variables which you can place anywhere in your snippet. This can for example be useful if you copy multiple columns and / or rows from a spreadsheet and want to insert them at specific locations in your snippet.
See the documentation http://lintalist.github.io/#Splitfor more informations and basic examples.

Feedback welcomed!

Just a heads up, a new beta is available, v1.7:
  • New: SearchLetterVariations setting -  Allow for variations of letters in search query - 'e' also searches for 'eéèë...' etc
  • New: SnippetEditor Setting - Allow user to set editor to use for "Edit in Editor"
  • New: PlaySound Setting - Play sounds after paste, open or close of Search Gui (beeps, default Windows media or user files)
  • New: added help menu with 'Help' and 'About' options to the GUIs and added 'About' to tray menu
  • Minor fixes and code refactoring.
 
I'd be interested to hear any feedback on the search results if you use this version, especially if they are unexpected or different from previous versions.
Adding SearchLetterVariations meant I had to change some underlying code for the various search methods which now makes more of use Regular Expressions which could mean results are different or displaying the results of a fuzzy search has become slower. 
(For the PlaySound option: there are no sound files included, just look at sound.ini in the lintalist folder for instructions where to place them.)
 
Download the ZIP and unpack it to a folder of your choice:
 
Feedback welcome: https://github.com/l...alist/issues/49 or here of course.
