i am having issues with putting ... anything in to the desktop areas. i cant just drag files and folders to the desktop areas, and if i make a link or a real item in the real folders, it shows up as a generic icon...

Am i doing it wrong?

On drag & drop - it's UIPI, it can be disabled by lowering UAC level. On icons - could You write more detail (like file type).

That's weird then, anyway regarding NP for Web - there is even "Open all" option when clicking on title bar. Sadly not many people use that extension nowadays, even NWC didn't become popular even though there is nothing wrong with it. Guess, this is fate of all things ahead of their time or not being pushed in mass media.

I keep the main sites i used in different nimi orignizers for Web, and right-click > Open all is always used, so glad that is in the code!

And yes, mass media literally has way to much impact on what is popular and what is not, even if it is a good app.

Is it ok if I do a web review of NPW on my blog? Then I will submit it to a few sites that i frequent (WM, rightguy.info)

There is freedom of speech so anyone can write review, critique even ;D

For me biggest concern with NP for Web though is that it technically requires revision, I know it works, but support of dual storage (remote & local) complicates it too much.

Anyway, there will be two new projects that You might find to like even more - both should have web versions.

Thanks, casual update, nothing too fancy. [link]

Yet I suggest trying PlaceTime features (click on any container in Center menu - You will see PlaceTime icon on menu bar - click it to open container PlaceTime settings)

Excellent german. Doesn't sounds like google translation. I know many polish people are able to talk and understand the german language.I have some polish friends and can't imagine that i would be able to learn polish.Seems to be a hard job for both sides.:)

Hope it was a bit understandable - as it was intermix of translation, phrases kind-of-templates and my linguistic knowledge flashbacks from back when I studied German (10 years ago or something?)

Slavic languages, and other with such complex grammatic like from Roman family - are definitely hard to learn. In matter of fact - ironically - I've always had better grades and scores from English than from my native language.

As for German (which I still insist to write Deutsch in English) - I really do see a lot of similarities, and while I totally can't write in it, I would say I have some very basic passive reading skills. (on speaking - I practice pronunciation frequently)

Could be a little more intuitive - but are controlled by swipes -> left-right change display, up-low scrolling and tapping - tap activate action, long tap - used for opening previews so far.

There should be some documentation on page - with next March/April release - right after new NV, which finally can be pushed forward - with only x64 event detection being still an issue.

It seems to be a really great program. o.o But there is no chance that there will be a version for mac-user, isn't it?
Reply
:iconsamiwieciekto:
samiwieciekto Featured By Owner Aug 10, 2010
I would say that main problem is not porting - overall its using mostly own controls - but lack of machine to develop on :] As Nimi is non-profit I doubt any chance will occur soon (unless magically getting chance to work for Apple Inc. :D)

They were not on my desktop, i had to install them again..

congrats with the DD :D
great project n__n

You mean that those disappear? Each place is running in separate thread - more or less their closing is kind of defence mechanism to preserve program running. In early versions it could been triggered by thumbnailing mechanism. Nowadays we managed to cause it few times by stressing database (was really funny xD)

Yet this restart - and standby - issue sounds like something new could You bring some more details?
