Notebook 2018  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 4.83
by: Phuein [More]
Gift me @phuein in-game, if you have extra crowns and appreciate my addons. (Ask me which DLC I didn't get yet!) Thank you!

This is a changed, updated, and fixed version of the addon Notebooks by Glen348 that is now outdated. There is only one notebook now, instead of three. I personally use Shift+F or F1 to display the notebook (KeyBindings -> User Interface -> Notebook.) /nb will also display it. And /nbs will display the settings menu.


Recommendations:
  • Backup your notes outside of the game! You can copy & paste them anywhere, like a .txt file or your Google Docs, or...

  • Back up your data file by copying it or with Google Drive Sync at:
    C:\Users\%USERNAME%\Documents\Elder Scrolls Online\live\SavedVariables\Notebook2018.lua

  • Before changing your character's name, back up its Notebook. [I haven't tested this myself, so please post in the comments if a name-change loses its Notebook or not.] (Shouldn't affect the Account-Wide Notebook.)

  • After writing meaningful changes to your Notebook, you must use /reloadui (in the chat) to immediately save them to file! Otherwise, there is a risk that a game-crash will lose all those changes.


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. (Deleting will always request confirmation!)

  • 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 be offset within limit.

  • 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.

  • The Undo button has been removed. (Selecting any page will undo your changes.)

  • The info icon has been updated.

  • Fixed a visual issue with the z-index of page selection buttons.


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 and some texts. Unfixable.

  • An option in Settings to change Text Selection highlight color.

  • Scrolling control (and fix) for Formatted and Edit Text modes.

  • An option in Settings to toggle Formatted Text Mode (colors, images) as an override (if you just want it off.)

  • 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.

  • An option in Settings to overwrite another account's Account-Wide or another character's Character-Wide Notebook (same account or another) on the same PC.
    WARNING: It is strongly recommended that you back up your notes before committing any overwrites. (Please report if this is working for you.)

  • A right-click menu to page selection.

  • A Send as Mail menu option that opens your Mail Send dialog, puts the page's title as the mail subject, and the page's content as the mail body. NOTE: Page title max-length has been set to match mail subject max-length. And the recipient field will not be changed in your mail.

  • Dividers between pages. To create a divider, just change a page's title to "---" (3 dashes) and when you save the page it will show. (The divider is also still a page, so it can have content.)

  • The Notebook will always load into the last selected page (even after logout.)

  • A Copy from Mail menu option that copies the subject and body of your currently selected mail item in your inbox, into the open page's title and text. NOTE: This does not also save the page for you. Option only available when right-clicking the current page.

  • An option in Settings to set the book's texture (style) between: Paper, Rubbing, and Skin.

  • An option in Settings to display the Notebook over other UI elements, to assist with taking notes, such as during quest dialogues. NOTE: Enabled by default.

  • A Copy Random Line page menu option that copies a random line from the page into the chatbox. NOTE: Will not pick the same line twice.

  • An option in Settings to make chat-links clickable inside the Notebook. NOTE: Enabled by default.

  • A Toggle Markup text menu option that toggles the new official Text Formatting (colors, images) mode. NOTE: My old method that allowed this is now hopefully redundant, and is disabled entirely.

  • Added a Russian translation. Thanks to user GJSmoker for improving it!

Thanks! That's odd, @Phuein should work - I'm in PC-NA. Donations are welcome, but for feature requests please dm me to discuss. I'm not very available these days, sorry.

Thank you for updating this addon, Phuein! I really love this mod! I use it for RolePlaying and daily journal entries and writing down my quests.

Check the replies from wookiefriseur (2022-06-15 15:31) and me (shadowcep 2022-07-18 18:59), just before your account-wide question, they explain how to rename tabs (the feature had been slightly broken lately).

The workaround is easy from keyboard, the code fix (if you're comfortable with doing it yourself) brings back the "mouse left-click title on righthand page" approach.

@Phuein: could you incorporate the code fix into next release?
I checked your solution and yes, it worked indeed. So you helped two times in a row (and 100 more other people i bet), so remind me to buy you a coffee and sandwich next time! Be well my friend....

Thanks! You mean changing the title of a note? Yeah, just click the title area in the note itself, the big text, and you can change it.

Thank you for replying on this (although i saw it too late as it seems), but I appreciate your time and effort. I just wanted to say that clicking on each note's title (left panel or right panel top), doesn't seem to give any option to rename it, as left click just.....clicks and animates the line and nothing more, while right click extends three choices only but none about renaming.

I'm not the developer but I think this is the answer you need:

If you are running with "Account-Wide Notebook" OFF, then there will be a button just below that option which says "Overwrite Account-Wide" (with tooltip "Overwrites the Account-Wide Notebook with the current character's pages.")

If you click the button and confirm the action, your current character's notes will be copied into the Account-Wide notebook and the UI will reload.

Go into the settings again and turn "Account-Wide Notebook" ON, then after the UI reload you will be looking at the Account-Wide copy of your notes.

The original notes will still be in the character you copied them from, so you can go back to them there as a backup or to delete them later.

You can use other options to copy notes from one account to another or from one character to another.

To help you keep track of notebooks, account-wide or character-wide, it's useful to change the book's title. Don't forget that one book copied from another will have the same title at first, so rename it when you first open it.

I hope this helps.
Thank you for taking the time to explain the procedure, which was indeed simpler than i thought. I had not used to overwrite the account-wide notebook when i first tried, but after your explanation, it seems to be a two step procedure... first overwrite the account-wide book with the current one and then enable it.

You surely helped.

Question Account wide availability issue

Hello hello. I have a question to the developer (or anyone else has a good answer) about this handy and extremely useful addon. I want, to make my existing notes, which are many, to be available for all characters (still have none), but when i activated it recently, beside the small "heart attack" , i noticed that all notes got wiped, or to put it better, upon UI reload, i ended with an empty notebook. When i chose to revert this change, i got all my notes back but not account wide available anymore obviously.

The question is more or less obvious here... how can i make my notes available, without losing anything upon UI reload or character change? It should be a fast and without trouble procedure, unless i am missing something, but i believe i don't.

DIY fix to use mouse on page titles after Update 34

Thanks for this - didn't know TAB worked like that in Notebook, will use it in future.

After your comment about GuiRoot, I also went and looked at the code. I think the problem is related to Update 34 (Version 8.0), which introduced a change to rendering order (that also determines which controls get mouse clicks).

If you'd like to use the mouse on page titles again, a one-line (single-digit) code fix that works for me is:
- in AddOns\Notebook2018\Notebook1.lua
- replace line 604
Code:
NBUI.NB1RightPage_Title:SetDrawTier(0)
- by
Code:
NBUI.NB1RightPage_Title:SetDrawTier(1)

Had a quick look at the code and no idea why the click does not work.. probably some GuiRoot issue. But I noticed it listens to TAB presses.



So, not a fix but a workaround:


When you are in the body of the note (right hand side) you can press TAB to move the cursor into the title box. You can change the title that way.

This add-on has the greatest potential of all add-ons created for ESO. I'd love that book being the interface of many other add-ons. e.g. timers, harvest tracking, so many possibilities
