Hi,

I have some usability issues with Minutes UI that I'd like to share, maybe for others is different:

1. Save

When editing a note, the dialogue that prompts if you want to save and exit or save and keep editing is superfluous in my opinion. I think it would be better to just save without any dialogue, if you want to exit it's just one tap away from the top left back button. That way it wouldn't interrupt you if you want to keep writing and just want to save the note. 

2. Tool bar

Both the delete note and markdown preview are items of the menu accessed by tapping the three vertical dots. I think both functions are quite common and should appear in the top bar, maybe instead of the markdown symbols switch (which is not a switch, and it looks like a drop down menu due to the small arrow at the bottom).

Maybe the eye icon should switch to markdown view, instead of read only or, if the Editor Toolbar is selected in the settings, replace the icon that hides the Android status bar with a markdown preview (I know this can be assigned to the same icon by long tap). All in all, I found very confusing switching between web view, read only, editing and markdown preview. 

Also, as I'm using the editor only for text notes and markdown, could somebody tell me for what functions the web view is used?

I'd like to know what other users think.

Thanks for your suggestions. I will keep them on my list and give more thoughts about them later. The development of the app will be taking more time and would be getting much slower this year as my other deadlines/obligations accumulated.

Hi,

I've been updating minutes a few times these past days, with the beta releases and the official ones. Now I noticed, in the widget list, five Minutes Notes Browser widgets and five Minutes Add New widgets. They look all the same, and probably is the same widget repeated five times. Anybody experiencing the same? I'm on a Nexus 7 2013, Android 4.4, Kernel 3.4.0-gb0eacf3.

Another solution which worked for me: uninstall and reinstall. As my notes are synchronized with Dropbox, I lost nothing. Saves the reboot.

A Play Store review mentioned that when using Minutes with multiling o, the keyboard would not pop up. Please let me know if you experience the same problem with the keyboard. Thanks.

Is there a convenient way to export a note as a complete HTML file?

Currently, through the share option in the markdown view, only the tags inside the body tag are exported. I'd like to be able to export to a file a complete html file which I can share or convert to pdf or whatever.

Is there something I'm missing?

+Lsc Saelim it's taken me a while to get round to trying your suggestion, which essentially works but with a couple of issues: small issue first, once shared it offers to save with .txt extension; and secondly, I the processor doesn't seem to escape non safe characters in the html output. In the example below the single quote ends up being saved as a Unicode character, I'm guessing, and is displayed as a series of strange glyphs in a web browser or html viewer:

Beta: allow calendar date picker to be disabled when inserting date stamp as some users could not insert date stamp in Minutes Pro (I am traveling so not much tests done for this fix, sorry if it leads to crashes, though unlikely)
