Stackz - New Feature Requests / Change to mark right/wrong
« on: July 06, 2006, 07:25:17 PM »
Firstoff, I know that this is a huge and probably useless one but I thought I could as well give an idea what can still be improved.
Okay, I am aware of the fact that it might not be the smartest idea to have like 7000 cards in one stack...but I still like it like that. Random reviewing without seperation is just the best for me.
But stacks is getting slower and slower in testing mode...to mark a card as known or unknown takes like 5 seconds on my machine. Maybe I'm an idiot but I think that this needn't be. After all it does not need to rewrite every sub-stack just because I answered one card. Sure this might be useful for people who want the graphic of the stacks to be updated after every card...but an option to update the stacks after more entries and doing it in the background might make it better. I mean it should be possible to instead of rewriting the two stacks that are influenced by answer, which I assume is what is wasting most performance atm, to just make a small memory area where it stores what is to go to which stack eventually and then when it has spare performance do it or do it more infrequently on larger stacks, or maybe some other way.

Stackz - New Feature Requests / Flags for entries
« on: June 09, 2006, 01:38:39 PM »
Well I don't have PS but a delete feature would also be nice in the normal version of stackz. Well for the time being just copy and paste it somewhere or write it down. Easier than searching for it manually.

Stackz - Solved Issues / First lines of a card not displayed
« on: May 20, 2006, 11:10:30 PM »
I've been hesitating to write this as it is probably already known...or maybe a lot to do to change.
I'd be surprised if it's not known yet...except if there is something that makes me a special victim of it.

Whole lines of an entry are not displayed unless I resize the testing/learning window.

Before resize

After resize


Fortunately if I press the edit button I can, as there is a scroll bar, always find out if stackz has eaten an entry without 'searching' for it by resizing the window randomly until the entry comes out.

I'm already used to it...but it's still one of the most annoying things there is in stackz.
Each card needs another size to display all entries.
Do I need to mention that this is annoying? Resizing and resizing every time for every single card...except for those that only have one line.
It's really a miracle I've gotten used to it...

I think...if it's possible that a scroll bar appears if the edit button is pressed when it doesn't fit...wouldn't it be also possible to show this bar if not the whole entry of the card isn't shown outside the edit mode?
Well perfect would of course be if this didn't occur at all...though the above suggestion would of course suffice.

Stackz - Solved Issues / Find duplicates acting strange
« on: May 14, 2006, 01:16:48 PM »
The find duplicate button is showing...rather strange behavior.

Example: I chose to edit all entries in all lessons that are 'unknown' or 'bad'

The search duplicates button is not available. Seems like there are no duplicates. But that is not true. Then I let stackz sort it, with reading as criteria. No change in the button.
But now I scroll down and find my 蝦, which I added twice on purpose.

No change in the button. Now I change the sorting by clicking on Entry.
And see there, it becomes available.

Now I click it...and yeah! It worked.


Um...but this is quite strange. I only happened to find out that it works like this by accident. Maybe this should be...changed a bit?
For example by making it work regardless of the sorting...or instead of graying the button out make it automatically sort for entry and then perform the duplicate search.
If that all is impossible then a note at the mouseover that you have to click entry first would probably help the users.

Stackz - Solved Issues / Re: New features
« on: March 19, 2006, 02:23:34 PM »
It needs a feature to disable (or completely remove it forever) the annoying 'force to 人名/地名 conversion' forever if you once manually add a whole entry in a stack or edit the 'entry' of one word. Also support for editing stack names with ime without having to switch to direct input.
Furthermore better editing in the edit stack menu. If I for example have a long entry (in the meaning) like
#[後漢書西域伝、天竺]日本および中国で、インドの古称。
#ヨーロッパ人が渡来して以後、ある語にそえて、外国・遠隔地・舶来の意に用いた語。「―牡丹」「―の横町」
#天竺木綿の略。
#「唐から過ぎる」をもじって、「辛からすぎる」の意に用いる。「―味噌」「―醤びしお」
and want to put /// or --- or something at the beginning and end of this line to mark this line (meaning) then after typing the first - or / at the end of the line or whatever the input jumps to somewhere to the next line for no reason. The editing while in test or learning mode is even better than that.
Such small things can sometimes cause more joy than some huge new feature... Maybe I seem to be 'bitching' but it's rather that I think that stackz is already the perfect tool if everything works like the user wants it to work (rather than it becoming bloatware with lots of features but lots of annoying things).
