Re: tool for entering notes

Here's an idea I'd love to see on some next version, if it's easy to implement: the ability to delete all comments that are on the database but not on any note.

Let's say I write "Market Anjas Das" on a comment. Later on, I find out there's a typo, and I should have written "Market Anjan Das". What do I do? I use EBT's "Request Support" tool. Once the change is made, I will run Billy and access Options | Preferences | Retrieve locations, in order to retrieve this new comment. Then, I will access Options | Manage locations / comments, in order to locate the old / wrong comment and delete it from the database.

Ideally, when I retrieve locations, I ought to be able to choose the option "Overwrite all comments". (Because other users might use this database differently from me, this should be an option, and probably not the default option.)

"Nice to have" too would be:1. some confirmation when storing notes hitting F5

Looks like BILLY hangs up after 444 notes everytime.Actually i dont enter that much notes in one form,i always store after 50 notes,so after 8 forms stored and 44 notes in the 9th form icant enter more notes,although the 444th note shows up green in the enteringform.Even deleting the whole note including printercode doesnt help.Only storing the 44 notes withF5 and closing Billy helps,after restarting it works again(dont know if only to next 444 notes,cause i dindt try it till now ;.) )
BTW Automatic storing after xx notes(in settings) doesnt work doenst work for me :roll:
Wonder if it works for someone or me just doing wrong :?:

Well, I guess it's Bug Reporting Day. So here's a somewhat inconvenient bug (?) that has happened to me:

Let's say you state your template value to 5 and then add a bunch of :note-5:. Then you start adding a bunch of :note-10:, but you forgot to change the value.
If you realize your mistake before uploading, you may still change the values individually on each of the mistaken notes—only to realize that, after these changes are made and you upload them, they are in fact uploaded with the old values.
If you don't realize your mistake and upload them anyway, some of those error notes may be detected as errors. In that case, you will receive a message mentioning that those notes were not uploaded because of some mistake. If, after that, you change the values of the unsent notes individually and try to upload them, you will get the same message again—because, in fact, they are being uploaded with the old values (just like the first case).

I'm saving after each 5 bills and I can't recall having had any problem about this. Not sure if I ever needed the autosaved bills but I believe I did.
