  Working with Categories

All Advanced Diary entries supports categories. We've added this feature for better visualization of your information. You can assign any categories to the entry and then filter your entries by category. The program allows you to edit existing or create new categories.


Assigning Categories


When you assign a category to an entry, the "Categories" window will be opened:




To assign a category just mark a box at the left of the category name and click the "OK" button. Marked categories will be assigned to the entry.


In this window you can customize your categories.


Click the "Add" or "Edit" button to add or edit a new category. This dialog box will be opened:




Here you can enter a category name and select category color.


To delete a category, click the "Delete" button.


You can change the categories order. Just select any category and click the "Move Up" or "Move Down" buttons.

If the "Apply categories order to all entries" option is on, new order will be applied to all entries, otherwise each entry in the database will have own categories order.


The program allows to set up categories to multiple entries. Just select several entries, then click the "Records - Categories" main menu item and choose categories. These categories will be applied to all selected records.


Filtering by Categories


You can filter your entries by category or categories. Click the "Records - Filter by Category" program main menu item. A dialog box will be opened:




Here you can mark categories for which you want to apply filter. Click the "Clear" button to deselect all categories, if necessary.

Then click the "OK" button. Now Advanced Diary will display only entries, which has at least one of selected categories.


To remove filter simply click the "Records - Filter by Category" program main menu item again.
