Hello to the users of the Notes 8.5 beta client:
One of the things we tried to improve in Notes 8.5 was the "manipulatability" of the sidebar panels. So please try out the new sidebar. Specifically, please do one or more of the following:
- Open 3 or more sidebar panels. More is better.
- Drag to make them taller or shorter.
- Check to see if there are any new menu items on the "Panel menu" (the one drop-down menu thing we provide in the title bar of each sidebar panel).
IMPORTANT! If you are using TWITNOTES as a sidebar panel, well, the new features won't work, so remove twitnotes (You don't have to uninstall it, just remove it from the sidebar, I think). ther emight be other home-grown sidebar panels thta break it as well.
Let me know what you think/what we can improve.
I'll post pictures and details of how it is supposed to work, etc. in a day or so, but before I blog about the details of this new sidebar that you can manipulate more easily, I want you to just play with it.
