Thank you Steve for Toucan It's a great app that I use on a regular basis. I don't know of anything that performs all the same functions so Thanks
I've come across a couple snags since upgrading and hope you can help me.
Upgrade = Jobs Not Working
I've found that since upgrading, all my jobs no longer work. That includes syncs, backups and scripts. I created a backup job in 3, checked the jobs.ini and saw that your using a different format for job creation so I understand why it's not working. However I think with this being the case there needs to be some sort of warning on the release and download page informing the user that their previous jobs will not work. A fresh install is required and jobs need to be recreated.
Alternatively, a utility to convert old jobs.ini's to the new format would be invaluable for those like myself with long job lists. I know that's a lot easier said than done but thought I'd throw it out there.
Scripts, how do they now work?
With the introduction of the new script format I think their really needs to be some sort of explanation of how it works. This leads into my next query.
Not sure if this is by accident or by design but I noticed the Help tab is missing in Toucan 3. I opened the Toucan folder and found the help.html which I naturally thought was my ticket. Wrong. I dug further and found X:/PortableApps/Toucan3/App/Toucan/help/index.html which I realise is the manual. I believe this location will not occur to many users and recommend re-implementing the Help Tab. Also for the Script section specifically, this needs to be a bit more detailed explaining just how to add jobs to a script.
I may be wrong but it looks like Toucan 3 is using the older splash icon from 1.x or the early 2.x's. If this is deliberate, so be it. Personally I prefer the newer one as it looks nicer and is consistent with the application's icon.
I realise the most likely reason these issues are in the 3.0 final release are because I and other users didn't test the pre-release enough and report them before this final release. Forgive me
Please don't think this feedback is empty criticism. I heart Toucan.
