The Note List displays a list of notes that are pinned to dates within a specified range. Notes that are not pinned to dates will also be listed. The Note List also shows search results. To open a note in the Note Editor, double-click its row.
The displayed date range can be adjusted by selecting a pre-defined range from the date range drop-down list, or by manually entering a start and end date. Notes that are not pinned to dates will always be listed, regardless of the specified date range. The following pre-defined date ranges can be selected:
Row heights can be adjusted to allow more of the note text to be visible. All rows will have the same height. To adjust the row height, click the row border on the left side and drag up or down. After releasing the mouse, all rows will be sized to the new height.
The displayed columns can be customized by clicking the List button and selecting columns from the Columns submenu, or by right-clicking the column header. A list of columns will be displayed where columns can be toggled on or off. Columns that are displayed will have checkmarks.
The following columns can be displayed:
You can adjust the column order by clicking a column header and dragging that header to a different location. An arrow will display indicating where the column will be positioned. The column order is saved whenever it is changed, so the next time VueMinder starts, the column order will match what was most recently defined.
To search for notes within the currently
selected date range, type the
desired search term in the Search box and press the Enter key.
Previous search terms can also be selected from a drop-down list
in the Search box. After commanding the search, a tab will be
added at the bottom of the list, and the list will update to
show only the notes (if any) that were found containing the
You can command multiple searches, and each search will be added as a separate tab. The searched date range can also be adjusted via the date range controls, and the search will be automatically refreshed to show notes within the new date range. To remove a search tab, click the tab's X button to close it. If all search tabs are closed, the full note list will be displayed. You can also click the red X in the search box to instantly clear all previous search results and return to the full list.
Each column header contains a filtering icon. If the column is not being filtered, the icon will display as an empty filter or funnel. When filtering is active, the icon will change to be filled in. When the filtering icon is clicked, you can choose to filter rows based on the content of the column.
The following filtering selections are available. Uncheck an item to filter it.
Advanced filters can be specified by expanding the Text
Selecting any of these advanced filtering commands will result
in a filtering dialog being displayed, where one or more custom
filtering conditions can be specified. Use the Operator and
Operand values to define the filter. Click the "Add Condition"
button to make a compound filter. In the example below, the
Category column is being filtered to only show rows with
calendars containing the word "Holidays". After you're satisfied
with the filtering condition(s), click the OK button to apply
After a column is filtered, its icon will change to be solid, as shown in the example below. Multiple columns can be filtered at the same time. To clear the filter, click the filter icon and select the "All" option.
The currently applied filter can be saved to a file, or a previously saved filter can be loaded and applied. The saved or loaded filters will apply to all columns, so whether you have a simple filter on one column, or complex custom filters on multiple columns, the complete filtering criteria will be saved or loaded. To reset the filter back to the factory default, click the Reset Filter command.
In most cases, the note list will automatically refresh. However, there may be some isolated cases where the list doesn't refresh. In those cases, you can force the list to refresh by clicking the List button and then clicking the "Refresh List" command in the drop-down menu.
The contents of the current list can be exported to a Microsoft Excel formatted (.xls) file by clicking List button and selecting the Export to Excel command.
The current list will be exported to the specified file name. If the file already exists, you will be prompted to overwrite it. If you have Microsoft Excel or another program capable of opening Microsoft Excel formatted files, you can choose to view the exported file after the export has been completed.
This is an example of how the exported list appears when opened in Microsoft Excel 2010. Note the first column is the Complete column. If a row is checked in the list, its Completed value will export as TRUE.
When a note row is right-clicked, a context menu will display. The available commands are the same as the commands accessible from the right-click context menu of the Calendar View, and are explained in more detail there.
When clicking an empty row, the same menu that appears when the List button is clicked (in the upper-right corner of the Note List) will be shown. This menu enables filters to be saved/loaded or the list exported to Excel. These operations are described above.
