    The only "sync" feature in doogiePIM v2 is the manual import/export of the Calendar data ICS file. Google gives an ICS file via a URL you can get from the Google Calendar. If you browse to this special URL, doogiePIM will ask if you want to download and import the ICS file into your doogiePIM Calendar.

    Outlook calendars can be imported/exported using the Import/Export Data menu command in the File menu.

    Data in and out of doogiePIM is a feature that is concentrated on, in the upcoming version 3.

    Hi there and, likewise, we hope everyone is coping well.

    This is a testing time for humanity and our resources. I'm very sure the powers at be have our lives at the heart of their actions. Patience and trust in those of a higher knowledge is key to a good outcome plus a dash of respect for our fellow neighbour. So, keep safe and follow those guidelines. When one is unsure then common sense prevails.

    We would still like the v3 thread kept as this is referenced. Yes, the development of v3 is still continuing but at a slower rate (for obvious reasons all too known in 2020).

    Therefore, if you have any further ideas and thoughts about what you would like to see in v3, please please pop a post on that thread. We may not see v3 until 2021 but it will certainly be developed.

    Stay safe.
    Chris and crew.

    Hmm..... Interesting.....

    I need to look further into this but I don't like the idea of having open text, unencrypted files hanging around a disk structure.

    The game is afoot.

    I agree, GNUMACS is a great solution for Tex and LaTex documents.

    Thanks for all the ideas and feedback.

    The bespoke database format was made a long time again as there was no fast indexing, quick retrieval and compact storage system at the time of development. Of course, now we have lots of base file systems to use, such as DropBox and Microsoft drive (yuk).

    I'm sure a file/folder based system could be implemented although it wouldn't be as compact and as fast to retrieve data than the current model.

    Brainstorming will ensue. :)

    Please give further information when submitting reports. In order for me to fix the colour problem I would need to know which window this is. It looks like the Search window but it could be other windows within doogiePIM.

    Thanks for all the feedback and support to make doogie better.

    BiteSpire posted in Setting default font color.

    The font colour is dynamically changed to match an opposite colour based on the intensity of the current theme colour. To enable complete user customisation of all text colours of the UI would be quite a task.

    The font colours of document tree and folders can be set individually or in a group. Plenty of options are available there.

    There are also text background colour changes related to events, tasks etc in the record edit windows.

    The Documents section has a great deal of text and font options with the use of Styles.

    What further font colour changes do you need?

    Thanks for the report. Added to fix list.

    There are some commands used to start doogiePIM with a database and launch sections and head to a particular record. These are not currently documented. However, if you select a record then use the "Edit/Create Desktop Shortcut to item". You can then examine the param string in the shortcut properties.

    I'll see what I can do about documenting the current param commands.

    These options will be changed so you can enable error messages AND have other messages. Changing from radio buttons to checkboxes.

    Again, thanks for the feedback.
