  Working with records

There are two methods to create a new entry: you can select any date on the program calendar and enter your text. A new entry will be created for this date. Also you can click the "New" button on the program toolbar or use the Ctrl + N shortcut. A dialog box will appear:




Here you can select an entry date and enter entry title (optionally). If record has title, it will appear on the Documents tree instead of date. You can change the entry title by editing it in the Documents tree or by clicking the "Records - Rename" main menu item. If you would like to change the entry date, simply drag it onto an appropriate date on the program's calendar, and the entry date will be changed.


To edit already existing record, simply select this record and then edit text.

To apply the record changes, click the "Save" button on the program toolbar and all information will be saved into the database.


A built in text editor in Advanced Diary supports rich text formatting (RTF), pictures, tables and hyperlink insertion. Also we've added the backgrounds and diary templates support. See the Working with text and "Working with diary templates" help topics for more details.


You can add a voice diary or attach any file to the current entry. This is not hyperlink to file. The attached file will be stored directly in the database.


Also you can assign any categories to your entry and then filter your entries by categories.


You can send your entries by email. See the "How to send an entry by email" help topic for more details. Any entry can be opened as an electronic sticker on the monitor screen.


If necessary, you can cut, copy and paste selected entries by using an appropriate button in the "Records" main menu item. Advanced Diary supports multiple records selection inside a single folder.


To delete an entry, click the "Delete" button. If an appropriate option is turned on, the "Confirmation" window will appear:




After the confirmation all selected entries will moved into the "Deleted Items" folder. This feature will allow to restore deleted entries, in case if you deleted them by mistake.


To completely delete your entries, please delete them inside the "Deleted Items" folder, or click the "Records - Empty 'Deleted Items' Folder". After the confirmation these entries will be permanently deleted from the database:
