These enhancements would be nice to have in Personal Historian b ut as you can see there are workarounds,.
- When importing a new set of stories. (not just updating) It would be useful to allow setting the story status to not started. I currently do this in SQLite Expert.
- When adding categories they get entered in the order that I inputted them. I use categories as chapters in a book and if I put in chapter 5 before chapter 1 then the record number and category order all appear as entered. I can sort the stories in the main screen by date but when I publish chapter 5 comes out before chapter 1. Again I can correct this in SQLite Expert but it would be nice if I could select the order of the categories.
- My current project has 295 stories and I can change the category of each story one at a time. I found it easier to use SQLite to quickly set the categories for my stories. It would be nice if I could select a block of stories, like I can in delete function, and then say change all these stories to a category and probably eliminating all other categories for these stories. Again I am accomplishing this in SQLite Expert.
- When using pictures it would be nice to have the pictures properly positioned on the page in the final publishing. Currently some pictures overlay the footnotes on a page. No workaround except to edit in a word processor after publishing.
