Version 0.9.108a is now available !

Hi IQ Users !
 
Well, well, v108 was supposed to be a minor update to v107, basically adding support for Calendar repeating events.
 
As it turned out, from one thing to another, just about every aspect of IQ was worked on.
The Calendar of course, but also Workspace tabs, numerous aspects of grids (filtering, hoist, drag-drop, columns), Gantt charts, Universal links, Toolbars and Dashboards.
 
Lots of usability improvements too. Things that required many steps can now be done in much fewer steps, sometimes a single click.
And when in doubt, more and more dialogs have an F1 button (bottom left of the window). Click it or press F1 to open the relevant page in the user manual.
 
Newcomers also now have a central place for hands-on help and documentation: the Welcome to InfoQube command which opens up a system-provided and managed IQBase designed to help them get going.
 
So here we are, 3 months later and v108 is now finally online: 
  1. New: Welcome to InfoQube command and IQBase: The Welcome IQBase is a system provided and managed IQBase designed to help users learn how to use InfoQube
  2. New: Workspace: New Tab button, to create new grids or open existing ones
  3. New: Calendar: View and Edit Google Calendar Repeating events
  4. New: Calendar: The Today button on the date toolbar is now checked when the today's date is shown somewhere on the Calendar
  5. New: Grid: Filter by Selection. Select one of more cells to show only items with these cell values. Works with Wikitags too ! Grid column filters now work in a very similar fashion as Hoist filters
  6. New: Grid: Add Column command: Button to create New Fields (on the fly, without going to the Field Properties dialog)
  7. New: Grid: Improved drag / drop (UI and speed). This makes IQ a viable option for Kanban-style information management (i.e. Trello-like)
  8. New: Grid: Right-click on an empty area of the grid shows the workspace tab context menu
  9. New: Grid: Hoist Special now has a checkbox to show the hoist in a new tab
  10. New: Grid: Hoist commands: Hold Shift or Ctrl to show the Hoist in a new tab
  11. New: Grid: When selecting a grid in the grid list or the recent grid list, hold Shift or Ctrl to open the grid in a new tab
  12. New: Gantt: Overview pane enhancements: 1- Resizable, 2- Shows visible date range, 3-Option to show/hide bars
  13. New: Gantt: Show Critical Path. Shows in red the tasks that determine the project completion date. When showing the Critical path it is now also possible to:
    • Refresh the Critical Path, after a change to the tasks for example
    • Optimize the schedule. Compress the tasks based on task links and delays to find the earliest completion
    • Save the optimized schedule as the current baseline, or turn off the Critical Path to return to the current baseline
  14. New: Gantt: Dropdown menu command to select the Auto-Scroll setting: None, Bar start, Bar end. Scrolling through Gantt tasks now offers better control over bar visibility
  15. New: Gantt: When the focus is on the Gantt, the left / right arrows now provide more information by:
    • Vertical colored line showing the date
    • Left / Right keys move the focus to the previous / next date of interest
    • All tasks that start or end on that date are highlighted (selected)
    • Use Ctrl + Shift + M (to mark) or Ctrl + C to copy these for easy referencing
  16. New: Gantt: Link color is now the same as the originating bar
  17. New: Gantt: When creating links between tasks, option to not show the dialog
  18. New: Gantt: Double-click on a link to open the link properties dialog
  19. New: Gantt: Improved Link dialog
  20. New: Dashboards: Right-click on the pane title bar shows the workspace tab context menu
  21. New: Dialog UI uniformisation in progress. Support for user selectable font size. "F1" button and function key support to open the online help page
  22. New: Format toolbar now has a
  23. New: Support for universal links to other apps (using URI protocol, such as Onenote://, ct://, epim://, etc)
  24. New: Support for universal links to IQ items and views (IQ:// hyperlink protocol)
    • Format: IQ://C:\SomeIQBase.sndb/items/ItemID, or:
      • /items/ItemID1,ItemID2, (...)
      • /views/Surface
      • /views/Calendar
      • /views/ViewName
      • /views/ViewID
    • The link will show the IQBase with the correct element in focus
      • If the IQBase is currently closed, the actual path specified in the link will be used to open the file
      • If the IQBase is already opened, link will switch to it, even if the actual link path is incorrect, as long at it is the same file name
    • Use Edit > Copy > Copy Item URIs to put a link to the selected items in the clipboard
    • Use Copy View to put a link to the view in the clipboard
  25. New: IQURIProtocolInstall.exe program to setup and register the IQ:// protocol
  26. New: Edit > Copy > Item URIs
  27. New: Properties pane: Item lists are now editable (Parents, Siblings, Children, Marked items)

  33. Fixed: Grid: Item > Split did not properly assign parents to the created items
  34. Fixed: Grid: Alt -> does not assign main parent
  35. Fixed: Grid: on column filter by selection, re-select the items after applying the filter
  36. Fixed: Grid: Re-arranging sub-items was not always save correctly
  37. Fixed: Grid: Custom formats were only applied to numeric fields (it is now possible to format dates using a format such as long date)

  53. Fixed: Import flat list: Failed if there were more than 32767 lines
  54. Fixed: Universal clipper: if 2 or more IQ instances were opened and one was closed, the clipper no longer worked
  55. Fixed: On touch screens, tap on a workspace tab did not always activate the tab

Lots of cool stuff in there!

Re: Version 0.9.108Pre1 is now available !

 Can't get the URI to work -- chrome starts up each time when I click on an hyperling created with the URI.
I'm probably missing a step. Will check it out tomorrow. 

Re: Version 0.9.108Pre1 is now available !

Hi,
 
Did you register the IQ protocol ?

Yes, I did.
(At first I didn't, and Windows complained. Then I did, and now Chrome starts instead of IQ.)

Re: Version 0.9.108Pre1 is now available !

 I'll try restarting Windows, just in case...

Re: Version 0.9.108Pre1 is now available !

 It doesn,t work, but I suspect it's a problem on my side : URIs to Word documents don't work either
e.g. <a href=ms-word:ofe|u|file:///E:\Desktop\Bio_Murgia.docx>Test</a>

Re: Version 0.9.108Pre1 is now available !

Open Regedit.exe and check that the following key was properly created:
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\IQ
  • DefaultIcon
  • Shell
    • Open
      • Command
        • (Default) : "IQMainFolderPath\infoqubeclipper.exe" /select %1

Re: Version 0.9.108Pre1 is now available !

OK, that was it. Now it works! 
I should've checked that.
(Had to replace IQMainFolderPath with my own path though. Was that what you had in mind?)
 
I'm really happy about that URI stuff.

Great !
 
No, it should be automatic. I found a small bug in the protocol installer. I'll release an update later on today
