Notebook 2018
Version: 4.51
by: Phuein [More]
This is a changed, updated, and fixed version of the addon Notebooks by Glen348 that is now outdated. There is only one (1) notebook now, instead of three (3). I personally use Shift+F and F1 to display the notebook (KeyBindings -> User Interface -> Notebook.) /nb also displays it.


IT IS STRONGLY RECOMMENDED TO COPY/PASTE ANY IMPORTANT NOTES OUTSIDE OF THE GAME.
(The dev's are currently working on having the game auto-save correctly! July 2018)

When necessary, or in doubt, back up the addon's data file by copying it:
C:\Users\%USERNAME%\Documents\Elder Scrolls Online\live\SavedVariables\Notebook2018.lua


This fork changes the following:
  • Fixed positioning of elements.
  • Fixed a bug with page options displaying incorrectly for new pages.
  • Improved default settings.
  • Using Escape now closes the notebook (as part of SCENE_MANAGER.)
  • Fixed and changed when confirmation dialogues appear.
  • Double clicking a word will only select that word. Please use Ctrl+A to select the whole page. (This can be changed in Settings.)
  • Fixed the Title and Page from showing and allowing writing, when there is no page selected.
  • The button in chat is now positioned better, and its position can't be changed.
  • The settings menu is now organized by categories.
  • Max characters per page is 1,900. NOTE: Unicode characters take extra space! And up to 3,000 characters can be displayed for editing purposes.

And adds the following:
  • New Page Title now defaults to current time and date (or "New Page" if that fails.)
  • Page moving Up / Down buttons for sorting pages easily.
  • Text Formatting display mode that shows colors, images, and more. It's on by default when not editing the text.
  • An option in Settings for when Edit Mode is entered and exited (default is Clicking.)
  • An option in Settings to select a default New Page Title.
  • An Account-Wide mode that uses the same Notebook for all characters in your account. Its pages & settings are separate and do not affect the characters' pages & settings. NOTE: Each character has to activate it for itself.
  • An option in Settings to overwrite the Account-Wide Notebook with data from the current character's pages & settings.
  • An option in Settings to disable /read and /idle when opening and closing the Notebook.
  • An option in Settings for Line Selection with Tripleclick (Doubleclick+1). BUG: Doesn't work correctly with UTF/Unicode characters. Unfixable.
  • An option in Settings to change Text Selection highlighting color.
  • Scrolling control (and fix) for Formatted and Edit Text modes.
  • An option in Settings to disable Formatted Text mode.
  • An option in Settings to change the text color in the Notebook.
  • When editing a page, a character counter will display at the bottom-right.

Hrm. That's an interesting suggestion, and a real serious issue. I went over the addon and its code, and I'm not tempted to integrate it. I might consider adding my own small alert system / notification for changes in the notebook.

However, the real issue is with the game developers. It's unacceptable that savedvars aren't backed-up for crashes. Saving a little text "live" should be no issue, at all. I strongly urge you, and all other users, to post in the forums here (a big thread with people voting their mind?) and request such a fix for good.

I'll keep a note about the alert system in my addon notes for future review.

I'm sorry you're having this kind of trouble with it. Very unexpected.

Were any of those Character Notes saved before that? Or was it all new? The game saves notes on /reloadui or log out.

If you put Character Notes, do /reloadui in chat, and then apply them to Account Notes, does that work?

Not a waste at all. This lets me know of the potential confusion, and so I added a note in the addon description. It's a feature by design, after all. Don't want people hating it.

Yes, thank you! It's probably user error, or for whatever reason my saved vars didn't save after the editing that was done. I'll make some edits, double check settings on my characters & try it again. Thank you!!

Yes, it should show the changes for all other toons that are using the AccountWide Notebook too. There's a distinction to be made here:
Every character needs to enable the AccountWide Notebook for itself, if it wants "in on it." Otherwise, it defaults to using its own Character Notebook.

This means that you can select which toons use the AccountWide book and which use their own book. So, if you use the AccountWide for some, you don't have to use it for others.

Does that help? I just tested and the AccountWide Notebook seems to be working fine for me; changes apply for all toons that have it active.

I ask because I made several edits on a toon yesterday, and the changes have not been made in the notebook for any of the other toons. I did save it several times & I don't believe there was a crash preventing the saved variables from being updated.
I still need to log in to that toon and see if the changes made stuck on that particular one or not. If so, I'll use the Overwrite feature. (Very handy, thank you for that!) I just wanted to make sure that Account-Wide is supposed to work the way I think it does. Thanks!
