    Default Output Formats

    Hello,

    Do you have any plans to be able to create outputs say for example in html for a diary entry - if yes how will that handle attachment data, like Sound, Image or Video ?

    What output formats do you currently support ?

    Regarding Printing - I have been playing with the Free Version - I created and printed some entries, but not all life factor data appeared on the printout I created, is this some set up issue or is there a bug in this ?

    I have played with Export Diary in Free Version and I see it creates an rtf file.
    This, like the Printed Version is not including the Life Factor - Matter - Temperature and Humidity Information - Any reason for this?

    Regards,

    Jon

    Jon,

    I'll need to check why those factors are not exported - have you modified them in any way? Are they plotted on the graph?

    At the moment diary entries can only be exported to RTF, but PDF export is also planned. HTML may be another option to consider...

    No modifications from standard. Did then try to change a few things but didnt help so have reset back to initial values.

    Those are exactly the formats I was hoping for pdf and html.

    PDF will be the first to get implemented, since it's close to what current export to RTF does. HTML is much trickier, as contents can be formatted either according to HTML or XHTML with tables or divs and the myriad of other options. If you were to use HTML output, where would you use it?

    Not sure as yet - I guess I am still thinking of future proofing as per my other post.
    I am wary of spending many hours days weeks diarising aspects of my life only to be unable to access them in 2020 when we get Windows 16 - Maybe to create some scrapbook type thing and having attachment images, videos etc embedded would be very cool.
    I am not a blogger but it would be quite cool to be able to post selected stuff if I wanted to.

    Yes, I understand about future proofing and being able to access your data at any point in the future. HTML is probably not the best for this though. RTF is actually read by many applications and is thus a sort of a standard format. Attachments can always be extracted from the diary file and saved back onto disk (if you chose to embed them in the diary). Of course backing up is very important - I can never stress that enough.
