Stackz - Bug Reports / Demo wordlists
« on: June 14, 2008, 11:22:41 AM »
Deleting the sample wordlists will cause Windows Installer to pop up the next time Stackz is launched.

Of course, not deleting them won't cause any problems, but I assume that a lot of users will delete them on instinct before running the main executable.

PocketStackz - New Feature Requests / Virtual buttons / Font size
« on: June 13, 2008, 01:23:21 PM »
My PPC (Willcom WS-003SH) has a sliding keyboard, so I usually use it in landscape mode. The D-pad is small and downright hard to use, so when using Stackz i prefer the touchscreen buttons.

As seen in the attached picture, these buttons take up about one third of the screen, and as much space as all attributes combined. Even so, I still have to use the tip of my fingernail when hitting the up button to be sure that I don't accidentally hit any of the adjacent ones.

A possible solution to this problem would be to make the buttons an invisible 'overlay'. This would free up a lot of screen real estate AND make it easily maneuverable with your fingers.

Another problem is that, since font size is decided by attribute length, "entry" and "reading" will get a huge font while "example sentence" will get a tiny font, and still not display correctly, since only the first line is shown. Switching to portrait mode will fix this, but being able to 1) choose font size, or 2) redistribute the height of attributes would be a lot better IMO.

Landscape mode:

Portrait mode:

PocketStackz - Bug Reports / Resizing problems when changing orientation
« on: October 14, 2007, 10:12:49 PM »
I have a Sharp WS003SH (VGA screen) running WM5, and the proportions of the main screen (the one with all of the lessons showing, not the one with file names) won't resize properly when you go to/from landscape mode.

So, if your device was in landscape mode when you opened the file and then change back to portrait mode, the window will extend way beyond the boundaries of the screen. If you opened it in portrait mode, changing orientation will result in a window with reduced width.

Also, if you go from a disformed main screen to the Edit dialogue, it will have two sets of scroll bars (scrolling the new one will lock my WS003SH up, but then again its pretty buggy), but if you go from a normal-sized main screen to the Edit dialogue, you can change orientation and it will resize properly.

PocketStackz - New Feature Requests / Buttons too small in VGA
« on: July 24, 2007, 02:05:46 PM »
After nearly three years of using PocketStackz with my h1910 - which I bought for that sole purpose - I finally decided to upgrade to a WS003SH, which is faster and has got a nice and crisp VGA screen.

While fonts do look great, IMO the buttons are way too small. Not only that, but there's _lots_ of empty space on both sides of the buttons that should be used. This is more apparent in landscape mode.


Obviously, I should've posted this in the Bug Reports sub forum.

Stackz - Solved Issues / The Back button in the Learn dialogue

In the PC version the back button is always greyed out, and in PocketStackz it doesn't work as it should. Instead of acting like an undo button, it puts the current word in the list to the left, thus making it unable to declare is as known.
