A fix and a new feature but no updating yet – ReVuDo 0.3.8

with 2 comments

This is not a post I planned to write, but a bug is a bug is a bug, and they bug me.

On September 4th, Paul reported an issue with copy/pasting tasks from ReVuDo to Excel.  The context information was not copying. The most likely cause of this was adding the context icon to the context column.  It turned out to be a pretty easy fix, so here is version 0.3.8.  Paul, let me know how this works for you.

As it happens, I had finished another change that I had intended to go out in the big update for editing Nozbe using ReVuDo.  I had noticed that after I added more extensive filtering, that I wished I had a view with All Tasks.  So, I added one.  This is literally all your tasks in one view.  To make it more powerful I added a column for project labels.  Now you can open this view and filter for “context:out context:anywhere context:home” and get all the tasks with any of those three contexts.  Try it out and see what you can do with it.

Keep the comments coming.  I am working on editing, but that will be a large update, so I am not sure when it will be ready.  I’ll be blogging in the meantime, and will provide status updates as I go.

  1. Well done on such a quick response time! Looks like you’ve fixed the copy-paste bug!

    Regarding the corrupt characters issue in my post on version 0.3.7, the characters are “→” and “⇒”. In case they don’t come out in this page either, I’ll say that they are both arrows. One is called ‘rightwards arrow’ and Windows gives it the code U+2192. The other is the same, but with two horizontal lines (I can’t remember the code for that one – I have keystrokes set up for both).

    (BTW, I don’t see what adding edit functionality brings to the table – Nozbe’s windows/mac apps do a fine job. To me, Revudo simply brings great export functionality. Am I missing something?)

    Keep up the great work!

    • Thanks Paul. I’m glad to hear that it is working for you again.

      I’ll look into the arrow characters.

      As for editing, the initial driver was to have a fully functional Windows client that would work offline. Nozbe itself has started down that road so if it were only that I would leave ReVuDo to just provide the things Nozbe does not do. But, as I added filtering and reviewing features I realized how powerful a weekly review would be if I could edit so ReVuDo will become a full Nozbe client.
