    When I want to run the MiniBar Editor a dialog pops up:
    Unable to open the MiniBar Designer because it can't be found

    I use the portable version

    Have a nice day

    The MiniBar Editor is a separate utility which can be downloaded from here:

    It's more for advanced users, hence the reason for not including it in the doogiePIM package.

    New user here, and I'm very glad to have stumbled across this information about how to install the MiniBar editor. Many thanks! Another wonderful feature in a brilliantly designed app. :-D

    I also have a quick question: I understand that customizing the MiniBar is an advanced option and that, for this reason, it has not been included in the main application.

    However, is there any reason a link for downloading and installing the MiniBar can't be provided on the error message page, along with a brief explanation that this is an advanced feature?

    The reason I ask is that when I ran into the "can't be found" error message, I thought it was a bug, which is not a good impression to leave with a new user. ;-)

    It would also be great for those of us who DO want to install it to have a quick way to jump directly to the download link.

    With my thanks for your consideration,

    Thanks Metta for the great idea to include a Download button on the dialog. I can also add a more descriptive comment as to the Advanced uses of the editor too.

    I shall get that implemented in the next update which is due very soon.


  6. Sounds great, Chris! :-)

    Thanks for your prompt feedback, and your willingness to consider this suggestion. I'm sure many of your new users (and even some of your current users) will appreciate having this Mini-Bar info at their fingertips!

    Will be looking forward to the next update, and thanks again for your great support!
