Noteaway creating new note using each character

Shonari shared this problem 8 years ago
Solved

For some reason if a paste text into the text box in noteaway it automatically closes the note and starts a new one.


Also, if I type text into a new note its automatically saves each character as a new note.


Eg. In the new note box if I type "TEST" a new note test created for T, E, S and T


To workaround this I have to type "T" then scroll down to that note and then select it and proceed to continue to type.


I am using noteaway version 1.1


PS besides that, noteaway is the BEST note app I have ever used. And ive downloaded quite a few. Kudos to you

Thanks for getting in touch. I'm sorry you've run into an issue.


First question... where is your NoteAway Library located? Is it in a custom location like Dropbox?

Yes, its in a custom location ie dropbox.

Would you mind checking if the problem continues if you move the NoteAway Library to iCloud or the Local Container, or some other custom location?


I think the problem before had to do with Dropbox specifically. I need to look back to see how I solved it, or if I've made relevant changes in a new update that I've been working on on and off for a while. My mind is full of other stuff at the moment.

I changed the library from dropbox to google drive. Works fine now. Thanks!

I'm glad to hear that it works normally in Google Drive.


Does the issue return if you move the library back to Dropbox?


I'd still like to figure out why this happens sometimes with Dropbox.

Actually, I believe I've figured out and fixed the issue :-)


But, I'll need to release a new update for you to get the fix.


I've had an update in the works for quite a while now, but I've kept getting distracted with other work. So, the next update will have this fix as well as some nice new changes and features.


I can't give a timeline on the release as I also have an update for TuneSpan to get out soon. But, I can say that the NoteAway update should be out at least before OS X 10.10 Yosemite is released as it will have some capability fixes for the new version of OS X as well.

Cool! Good to know. My Google Drive sync kicked out just minutes ago (ie each character creates a new note). So I switched to icloud... same thing. I quit, restart and all that. Same ish. So I just went back to saving notes locally and that worked. Will wait on the update.


Despite this one bug, thanks for a damn good product. Best noteapp ive used.

NoteAway 1.1.5 is now available on the Mac App Store :-)


This bug should be fixed, but please let me know if you run into any issues.
