Contact Columns

    First of all I want to thank you for reviving do-Organizer!
    The impressive list of features is growing and growing!
    And it's much more stable, so I bought a license last week.

    I want to report a bug:
    Imported my contacts and that went very well.
    Use list view without any (sub)folders.
    I added some columns and reordered them by dragging with the mouse
    doogiePIM remembers this until I close the database.
    After reopening the database I open the contacts module and 4 columns are always placed back at the end of the list.
    Not all of them, but only these 4 columns:
    Birthday (This Year)
    Birthday Due
    Age Today

    Can you confirm this?

    Thanks in advance for your support and have a nice day

    You can be sure I'll look into this. I suspect there's a settings saving glitch somewhere.

    Many thanks for your kind comments and your support. I hope you'll enjoy the doogiePIM - Personal Information Hero -
    for many years.

    Thank you Chris.

    I hope you don't mind that I add another setting that is not saved between sessions.
    I docked the adress bar at the bottom, but after a restart of doogiePIM the bar is again on top of the screen.

    I don't mind at all. The more bugs get reported the faster I can fix them, making everyone happy :)

    The docking bug was fixed today so I'll upload a nightly build tomorrow evening. (version

    Hmm. Would it be possible to send me your settings file by email please.

    You'll find the file in the application folder, eg: C:\BiteSpire\doogiePIM\doogiePIMSettings.ini

    Please confirm if the Contact's Column persistence bug is fixed or not in version
    I've testing this latest version using a database structure and the settings you supplied and can confirm that the bug didn't raise its ugly head.

    If you're still experiencing a problem, please outline the steps in exactly how I can replicate the problem. Possibly with screenshots, but please blur any private information.

    I appreciate your help to get this matter resolved.

    Hello Chris, thanks for the update.
    The bug is still there.
    I can send you some screenshots, but I don't know if it helps.

    For instance: I can have the columns Home City, Home Postal Code and Telephone number. That info is saved. But when I place City between postal code and telephone number after reopening doogiePIM City is placed after telephone number. Can you still follow me :)
    Also the columns: Spouse, Birthday this year, Age today and Birthday due are always placed back at the end of the line. But for instance when I place Spouse as second column it is saved but some other columns are no longer sorted the way they where before.
    In other words: There are so many options and the behaviour of doogiePIM is unpredictable and is different every time I try something out.

    Forgive my English please ;)

    I've been working on this mystery all morning and have, hopefully, made some progress. After rewriting the code for the column routines, the tests look positive.

    I would be grateful if you could try this new version build and let me know if it solves your situation too. The new build can be downloaded here:

    Please note: This is only the main exe which means you need to copy this and overwrite the doogiePIM.exe in your existing doogiePIM folder. There's no other installation or unpacking, just a file copy.

    PS. Your English is awesome. ;)

    Thank you Chris.

    At startup of version there where only 3 coulumns in the Contacts Section. I defined the columns I want to use and reordered them the way I like best.
    There are now 3 columns that seem to change in the order of the columns:
    Web Page, Email Address and Primary Telephone Number.
    When I put these 3 columns at first and then the other columns, doogiePIM remembers the order of the columns. This is not the case when I put these 3 columns somewhere else. The other columns stay in place.
    Hope this info helps.
    Thanks for all your support.
