PocketStackz - Solved Issues / Re: Pocketstackz and linefeed character

Sorry I have not replied with a sample that demonstrates the problem.  To reproduce it simply create a two line attribute in pocket pc and then save.  Then when you see that card while learning or testing you will see the box character.

Actually, it is in the test and learn dialogs that it is showing up as square.  I have tried just about everything to get it correct.  At first I was using the list editor to add the cards and that caused the problem.  So eventually I tried to just edit the card on the pocket pc directly.  I would select the edit card menu option, insert the new line.  It seemed to work but then when I went back to the learn or test menu the square was there.  Is there any retriction on the trial version that might cause this?  Could it be that I am using Windows Mobile 5.0?

I have been looking for something like PocketStackz to get away from using paper flashcards.  I originally started with paper flashcards and they started to pile up quickly.  So I decided that a PDA solution would be ideal.  I wanted something that would allow me to categorize the cards as well as give indications of what should be studied.  I started with Supermemo for the PocketPC but I did not care for how everything was lumped into one collection with no way to study cards of a particular topic.  Pocketstackz seems to be more of what I have been looking for.  It allows me to pick cards from a particular lesson and gives nice indications of what is at risk of being forgotten.  The end goal is no paper flashcards.  Now if I could only resolve the linefeed problem (see other post under PocketStackz forum).

I am currently evaluating pocketstackz for use in learning German.? However, I have run into one problem that I would like to resolve.? I want to use the four available attributes as follows:

German Word
German Example(s)
English Word
English Example(s)

For the German and English Example(s) I might have more than one example and I would like each example on a new line.? However, I can not get Pocketstackz to properly handle the linefeed.? I have gotten it setup correctly using the free list editor but when I transfer the file to the pocket pc it only displays a square where the linefeed should be.? I have also tried entering it directly on the pocket pc.? When doing this I can edit the card and put in the linefeed (using ctrl-enter), however after the edit is complete and the card is shown the square is back.? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
