DO Journal Release v1.1.1: Enhanced Search, Other Improvements & Bug Fixes

Bug Fixes Day One Diary DO Journal Journal PC Search Update Windows

New Search Options:

DO Journal Search Criteria

Now you can find:

  • All entries on a given day. Selecting this option will show you entries from the same day and month across your entire journal. So, for example, a search on 14 Oct 2016 using this feature will return your entries from 14 Oct 2015, 14 Oct 2014, etc. if entries exist for those days. 
  • Find 3 random entries from the past. This will just bring back 3 random entries from all of your entries. If you have less than 3 entries, it will bring back the number of entries that are available.

Why did we implement this? Because we think that it is important to look back on past entries and see what you were doing at that time. Hopefully, this will lead to some introspection and reflection and perhaps it will lead to inspiration about new journal entries.

Other Improvements:

  • Introduced a splash screen for processing operations that can take some time such as creating a new entry, deleting an entry or searching for entries - especially if there are a lot of entries.
  • Improved rendering of entries to reduce flickering of the list - especially in search operations.
  • The status bar now refreshes appropriately to provide information regarding the activity/processing taking place.


Bug Fixes:

  • Fixed a major issue where some users were getting an error message ("xx/xx/xxxx is not a valid date and time") which rendered the application unusable. We deeply regret the inconvenience this may have caused. This issue is now fixed.
  • Fixed an issue where the entry was being marked read-only after editing its tags. This will no longer happen.
  • If you add a new entry while viewing search results, the application now brings back all of your entries along with the newly added entry.
  • Addressed a defect wherein the entry details were not being cleared if you deleted an entry from the search results and it was the only entry.
