Hi Max,

Thanks for solving the issue with losing customised view when changing Tree/Consolidated views!
I like this Customized filter.
I like also you added Due/Start date(regular/detailed) filer on the left column.

Keep good work guys!

Hi Max,
Sync with Android is very slow. The process stops responding on the notes synchronization.
I have already completed a first synchronization of all note attachments, but the subsequent ones are very slow. Android EPIM v.5.3 beta

Hi Max,
with me the sync to Android works now :)
Yes it is very slow... but first time after a long time I have even the subsequent and attachements.

Only thing is, that with each syncing it got every folder doubled, tribbled, ...

I will delete the Android Database and run a fresh sync from scratch. Then try a second sync and give feedback again.

Best regards
Juergen

Hi

I mainly use the notes and calendar modules. I am running windows 10 pro 64 bit.

So far the only new problem I see is when I create a child note, then promote it using the shortcut key (ctl-shift-leftarrow), it pops up to the top of the list instead of staying below the item I just inserted it into.

Other than that, some other problems that I've noticed also remain:
1. Whenever I install a new upgrade, my keyboard shortcuts revert back to the defaults instead of retaining the keys I've customized.
2. Also - I only use some of the modules. When I install an upgrade, my previous settings are ignored and I have to again designate which modules to show because all modules are now enabled again.
3. When I sync to my android tablet (epim for android 5.2.1) my notes come over in a different order from the way I have them arranged in the windows version. Can't they just stay in the same order?

And one small wish item, especially because of problem #1 above: When I click on a keyboard shortcut in the options dialog, why can't I just change the shortcut right there instead of having to click on the shortcut and then go down to the shortcut key box to make the change??

All that being said, I've had a lifetime license for Epim since 2015 and the product just keeps getting better, so keep up the good work.

Todd

DFNet, you mean slow comparing to the previous versions? Does that only affect the notes module or some others, as well?

Jaffcat, please do not duplicate your posts. The one you posted in another topic would be enough for us to react :)

Juergen, thanks will be waiting for the update.

Todd, please check your sorting order for notes in Android EPIM.
