Browser questions

    I am new to DoogiePim and excited to try out the many features! At the moment I have a number of questions about browsers and documents.

    Is there a way to open a local file html or other local file in the browser? The only way I found was to type in a file url.

    Is there a way to open a document in the browser? For example if i have stored HTML in a document and want to view it. Perhaps there is a way to link the document to the browser? Or do I need to link to an external browser?

    Is there a way to save from the browser to a document?

    It would be nice to have copy on the right click menu in the browser rather than having to use CONTROL-C.

    Is there a way to open a blank page and paste in HTML?

    Thanks for everyone's help on this!

    There's no specific command to open a local file, as yet. You could drag a local file to a browser page and it will attempt to open and display it. I've scheduled the "Open" command to be added for a future version.

    You can currently save a page as a PDF. To save it as text, View the source of the page then use the top command to "Save". Not ideal, I would agree. I'll work on adding a "Save as..." directly in the browser for a future version.

    "Copy" is in the context menu but hidden until you actually select some text first.

    There's no "Blank page" command, as yet. Again, could be added later. Have you explored the Developer Tools yet? There is as ability to edit the HTML of a page directly through there.

    I truly hope you carry on enjoying the features of doogiePIM. I welcome any and all feedback, good or bad. The more feedback I get, the better doogiePIM becomes.

    For a bit of fun, try typing the following URL into almost any browser, including doogiePIM:

    data:text/html, <html contenteditable>

    It will turn the page into a simple text editor.
