This app was worth installing just for the ability to disable the minimum width restriction on vertical taskbars. Now it's nice and narrow.

Right-click the tray icon and select 'Advanced Options', then set the 'no_width_limit' value to '1'.

Windows SmartScreen reports is as not recommended to run.

@JasonK: I don't know why it would - maybe Windows doesn't really want programs like this that complicate support calls? The program itself is 1/68 on VirusTotal (clean).

I am not on a Windows XP system yet I hate when developers drop support for Windows XP. As far as I know the last version of Rainmeter which supports Windows XP is 3.3.2.2743:

I have version 3.41 and use it occationally.

@infestedtassadar-x17;
I found this in the Help file:
"All versions of iDailyDiary have always encrypted the diary data files, whether they are password protected or not. From version 3.00 the encryption has been improved to a 128bit Blowfish cipher."

@infestedtassadar-x17;
If you need a formless text editor with strong encryption, please try CryptoTE 0.5.390.

@Vavo: with the exception that the files reside encrypted on my HD at home and not unencrypted on an unknown and far away server which you have no control over.

Only the x64 build is updated to version 4.66, the x32 build is still at version 4.61. I notified the developer about that a couple of days ago, no response and no fix so far.

Given the time of year, he may be on holidays... :)

I will attempt to post on application website but ...
"Always start minimized (To Tray)" option does not work.

I have not seen changes occur to the configuration file (AutoHideDesktopIcons.ini) for this setting.

I will also ask about command line option to start minimized.

donald on 2011-09-22 00:45

Please note the immediate response of the developer.

This is a very nice and handy piece of software from a very prolific developer.

I have only seen first rate software from this developer.

freakazoid on 2013-12-02 00:03

Neat little app. Uses around 1.0 - 1.5MB RAM. GUI is a little ugly like all SoftwareOK apps, but you'll probably want to start this in the system tray and forget it! :)
