    BiteSpire posted in Startup tabs?.

    This is actually going to be replaced with a drop down selection instead of radio buttons. I can agree it is quite confusing.
    It's more of "Action of tabs to show at startup".

    In order to achieve several open tabs:

    1. Select the option "Restore Tabs from last session", from the Settings.
    2. Open the tabs/sections you want. eg: Calendar, Contacts, Tasks and bitespire.com.
    3. Restart doogiePIM and you'll find the session with your tabs restored each time.

    Each open window remembers its own settings so you can create two different windows with very different tabs.

    I hope this helps.

    The glitch has been found and has been scheduled to be fixed for the next update. Thank you for the report.

    BiteSpire posted in PDF Page Bookmarks.

    When Bookmarking, the system tries to bookmark the current URL displayed. However, you'll be pleased to know this feature of bookmarking the page position is on the schedule of development.... and yes, I use doogiePIM to develop doogiePIM.... doogieception!

    Thanks for support of the feature.

    Hmm, that's odd as the tests I tried appear to work. I'll investigate further as to why it isn't working for you.

    Are the hyperlink URLs https type links or are they internal database links?

    Many thanks for this report.... The game is afoot :)

    The problem is one of legality.

    Chrome has licences for all the major video formats and is coded to play videos better.
    doogiePIM doesn't have all the needed licences yet.

    There is one major format, H.264. This format is widely used and I'm in the process of obtaining the licence to use this in my software. I could use rogue libraries but that would be illegal.

    As at the time of writing, I'm waiting for approval to use the patented format H.264 in doogiePIM. Once done, the range and formats of the built-in video player will greatly improve.

    It's no bother at all. Happy to give help and advice, if I can. :)

    I believe the problem may be due to Resources not being assigned as a Calendar Resource. You have to mark the Resource accordingly. By default, a new database comes with one Resource record "Default" which is marked as a Calendar Resource. Hence the reason why your new database appears to function correctly.

    You need to go back to your Resource you want as a Calendar Resource then edit the record accordingly.

    Thanks for the extra information. You are correct, there is a minor problem with the spell/thesaurus check on the focused edit window. It is planned to be fixed for the next update release.

    Well spotted. :)

    BiteSpire posted in Hello Everyone and Questions!.

    You mention you had hand written notes. Were these notes in a graphical format? as doogiePIM will only take the text of TexNotes into the Documents area.

    There is no Android version available, as yet. Some development has been done but has been deferred to concentrate on the prime reason for doogiePIM being a local database that is securely stored on a single storage area.

    Yes, a better Web Research clipping tool is on the horizon, enabling users to grab data from the web pages and insert quickly into Documents and Notes.

    I hope you find more of the features of doogiePIM to be useful and thank you for your questions.

    Could you show the location of the commands please. Are you referring to the ones on the main toolbar or elsewhere such as in the main menu.

    It's possible the icon lost its command link during compilation. Rest assured, this will be fixed for the next update.
