Louis, this latest release is really nice, tieing up a lot of loose ends.

It would be nice to have the OPTION to print the source title and citation (Page) in the report instead of just the code. I know that this could add many pages to a printout (mine is 408 pages long now), but it would be nice to not have to always refer to another page of a printout or follow a hyperlink and then back-button it back to where you were.

I could see this as a check box option that the user could select or not depending on their manner of working.

Keep up the good work!

Yes, I'll make that an option. Probably in Version 1.1

I was also thinking about having a tool tip show up containing the source and citation when you hover over the source and/or have it show up in the status bar. Those will be options as well to be added in Version 1.1

WAAAAAA, WAAAAAA, WAAAAA!!!

I thought that if I cried loud enough maybe this feature would end up in the product sooner. I'm sure that was loud enough ... maybe not long enough.

Or maybe I need to keep asking "Are we there yet?"

Just put it in whenever it's the right time to do so. I can wait. After all, I've got over 400 pages of Everything Report to read!

Having been a programmer since 1970 (and working in some langages that are probably now long lost ... like TUTOR on the PLATO system ... ) I know how hard it is to work everyone's requests in. Just keep plugging along.

Regards,
Rich

Keep being squeaky. Squeaky wheels do get the grease.

It is something I could squeeze in earlier, but Behold does not currently have an options page, and setting up a whole new window requires thinking about all the options and how they should be organized - something I'm not ready to do yet.

However I had another thought. If I add a toolbar icon (and an associated menu item) to allow toggling of the source details, sort of like the RM and EE buttons, then I might be able to implement it earlier, maybe for 0.99.

Of course, after that option is in, you'll have 500 pages to look through. :-)
