Resize pictures in the Notes module

Post by Kjell »

Pictures (jpg, png, bmp) in Notes are autosized to the screen width.
If I try to resize a picture manually, I found it very hard.

It's difficult to select the picture for resizing: How to do that ?
Sometimes I managed to do it (I don't know how),
but got a copy also, so I had two equal (resized) pictures.
If I after saving, try to delete any of the two copies, both are deleted.

Tested with EPIM Pro 5.8.7 on Android 5 & 10

The auto-save (of the entire database) happens when I switch to another leaf
(the only way to exit "edit mode").
So the picture I tried to resize is gone, permanently (can't undo).
The only way to get it back is to do a restore,
which is a very clumsy way to correct a misstake (or many misstakes).
This autosave (which I can't dissable) is my main concern when using EPIM.
I had to be very careful, otherwise I can loose my data.
That's why I sync from PC to Android only, because its more easy to do misstakes on Android.
I want to turn off autosave and be able to save manually when "I" want.

These are my findings. Maybe some are wrong.

You can tap on a picture and then use the zoom in/out icons on the toolbar at the bottom.

And you can always click on the menu while editing a note and choose Discard not to save the note automatically.

Thanks, I didn't know about the "Discard" option when a leaf have been edited.
I also found that the "Search" icon turns into a "Save" icon.
Now can I also delete the duplicate only.

The problem I had to select the picture for resize was that I only got one "dot" below the picture at left.
To get it to work there must be two "dots" (left and right) with a line (green) between them below the picture.

Is there any manual how to use EPIM on Android?
It would be nice to have a help section built in.

Could you please attach a screenshot illustrating how the "dot" looks like? As I'm not sure I follow this one.

About manual - all should be pretty much straightforward. What sort of info you think you'd need from the help file?

Are you tapping on the picture itself? If so, what's your Android OS version? Thanks!

As I mentioned in my first post: Tested with EPIM Pro 5.8.7 on Android 5 & 10.
The picture is from a test on Samsung S9 (SM-G960F) phone with Android 10.

Yes, I press and hold on the picture to get the two "dots".

I found that I could only lower the picture size 9 times.
I testet several different picturesizes (PNG) with the same result (same final picture size but different resolutions).
I need the picure smaller than I can get, so I have give it all up.

Thanks
