    It's a very nice little program, I like the idea and the layout, I wouldn't request any new features - it looks good as it is, still I think existing features could use a bit of tweaking, here's a couple of suggestions, if I may:

    - (I sent a message about this through the "contact" form, but here I go agan) I have a problem with CTRL+ALT+A shortcut, which is default combo for common polish letter, if I write the letter in notes box, all text I wrote to the moment disappears, it's quite a pain.

    - I think it would be logical that events without assigned duration should be always visible. At the moment an event with no specified duration is only visible on the day it has been defined. Anyway I'd love to have option to write events which are always on display, no matter which day it is.

    - I think there is a bug concerning the notes, it appears when "show note on mouse over" is OFF. Lets say we have two categories in notes: A with a couple of notes and B which is empty. First you double click A, now you see the tree with notes, then you doubleclick B and nothing happes as it's empty, now if you doubleclick any note from category A or you try to edit it it appears for only about a second and then disappears - that is notes from category A are practically unaccesible. To see them you need to click on the category A icon first and then on a note in this category. The problem only appears when the second category is empty. I hope I was clear enough to understand. Little thing, yet I suppose it could be fixed.

    - I think it would be nice if the program would save the layout on exit. Precisely the height and position of the window, and the height of the events part of the window. Also it would be great, if it would save the information of which "categories folders" were open. I would love to see the layout in the exact state I left it last time I closed the program.

    - Another thing about the notes: I would appriciate the option to add notes in "root folder" - that is not assigned to any category. Such messages would appear below the "categories folders" just as files in ms explorer.

    - Finally I would like to see more options in the upperleft corner, besides minimize button. Precisely I miss "exit button" and "always on top" switch. Also it would be nice to have option to have the program only as tray icon (no "program box" in taskbar).

    Anyways thanks for a nice tool, keep it up.

    Thank you for your suggestions!

    I have a problem with CTRL+ALT+A shortcut
    This bug will be fixed in a next version

    Anyway I'd love to have option to write events which are always on display
    You can select a long duration (1 year, for example), and this event will be visible during 1 year :-)


    I think there is a bug concerning the notes, it appears when "show note on mouse over" is OFF
    Yes, it is a bug, it already fixed, and corrected version will be released with a next version

    I think it would be nice if the program would save the layout on exit
    Partially done in a version 0.9.9

    Another thing about the notes: I would appriciate the option to add notes in "root folder"
    Good idea, it is added to development plan

    Right! =)

    After a couple of days of using the program I realised I miss another thing in notes tab. it would be nice to have option to sort notes and folders manually (by eg. drag'n drop) - just to keep more important notes on the top.

    One more thing - please allow multiply selection of notes. It would come handy from time to time - like for quick cleaning the old notes, now I had to delete them one by one.
