Notes visible in the 'All Dives' section option request

Post by Antarctic-adventurer »

Hi Nick,

Great to see how far MacDive has progressed over the years. Still my log book of choice across all platforms.

When I'm using my Mac to review dives, I have a pretty big screen with a lot of real estate. Currently if I want to read the notes I've entered from each dive, I have to open the dive inspector, navigate to notes and have it in a separate pop-up window. This is a bit cumbersome and not ideal when reading through lots of dives. It would be great if there was a view option to integrate and display the notes on the right hand side of the 'view as list' or 'view as icons' pane at the top of the application's window or something similar.

Notes integrated into the main window would make them visible easily as they would be in a traditional paper and pen logbook. Is that something you could consider adding in a future version? :D

I'm not sure I understand quite what you mean - are you suggesting displaying the notes in the main title bar? I would probably not drastically change the main interface to include notes.

I was going to suggest adding them to the table, but I look to have removed that column at some point. I could add that back easily enough if it was helpful.

Just want to add a "me too" request to add the Notes in the column display. I've got a 27" display and lots of screen area to see my notes in the column view.
