That is truly awesome. I've reached a point where I don't even use inline attachments anymore because they're so difficult to read around. I just put them on their own line these days.

Julian - I think that is a fairly common approach for Notes users these days, but with more CoexEdit web users who are not familiar with Notes and its odditities, I wanted to allow them to attach a file without the awful vertical constraints. One thing led to another, and now both CoexEdit and Midas have these various options. - Ben

Very nice Mr. Ben, very nice.

I put also attachments on their own line, that works fine. One very annoying thing is however that I can't change the filename of the attachment directly, but I have to detach, rename, and attach it again. Can't MIDAS fix that bug in specification? :)
It would be also nice that .doc, .xls, .ppt would be automatically forced to use the OpenOffice icons, so that people don't wonder why my icons look different than theirs. Another thing for MIDAS?

You can certainly do either of those with Midas 4.00, Mika

Did you just add those MIDAS 4.00 features after I wrote my comment, or did I just miss them? :)
Anyway, we are still struggling with a quite cumbersome process to convert Notes pictures to files, so you can expect a MIDAS purchase soon. Yeah, I know I planned to do that already few years ago, but my colleaque has been doing it manually, so it was not that big issue to me.

Mika - LOL. No, those were both already there.

Amazing, I've been mentioning about this shared mind concept earlier too. This once more proves it. People DO think the same thoughts at the same time, totally independant of known communication methods, it has happened before, and it's happening still.
