I have a DR1000, so for me this is not a problem, I recognise that it is a problem for the DR800, so for the next release I will try to see if changing the parameters for the startupComplete-system-call will bring back xournal to the front when clicking xournal.desktop again.
An alternative is indeed the DR800+ package as indicated by catharsis, which will enable the taskbar that also is available on the DR1000. This allows easy switching between 'active' applications.

Xournal-dr-0.6

I updated the first message with a new update for Xournal with:
- Disable multidoc, now clicking on xournal-shortcut again will bring running xournal-instance to front.
Specially usefull for DR800 owners (without the DR800+ patch from Iņigo). A running instance of xournal can now be brought to the front by clicking on the Xournal.desktop file again.
- Properly closing metadata.db file after importing scribbles
Someone reported that his metadata.db file of the folder in which he added a lot of annotations and merged using xournal, got corrupt after some time. Not sure if xournal is the cause and if this solves it. But it is better to close the file properly.
- Add .xoj file with tag:xournal and .pdg with tag:book
Currently all files created with xournal get a xournal-tag (also pdf-files). This fixes that behaviour.
- fast updates in xournal-statusbar lead to no updates at all, now using timer
The display timer has a timeout, where it waits some time after an update request is received, however, if they keep coming within the timeout, display updates keep on being postponed, leading to no updates for a long time.
Please keep giving your feedback.
Marcel.

Yes you are right, I can change it to a single line. Thanks.

Dear Mackx, dear all,

I still comparing the advantage comparing to version made for 1.71.
- Actually large files are opened faster; alternate pressing the tab increase speed.
- The continue rendering the screen when a word with one movement is finished really disturb my scribbling. I have tow wait for a second that the rendering is finished, otherwise my pen doesn't leave track in a range of determine time.
- Fine pen track becomes almost invisible. Scribbling was more smoothly in 1.71 version.
Finally I am returning back to 1.71, fine scribbling in xournal is very important benefit for me.
Thank you Mackx for taking all efforts to improve the software. I just wish to encourage you, that you are on the right way and still asking why 1.71 is more suitable for xournal.

Thank you,
Regards

I added an experimental mode to the 0.5 version that disables anti-aliasing, this improved the (loading/displaying) speed considerably, unfortunately it makes the scribbles 'jaggie'. I think most of the time is spend in the anti-aliasing. I do not really understand where the difference in opening speed between R1.7.1 and R2.0 comes from. I will put it on my todo list, but this will probably take a lot of time and switching between firmwares.
I will also check to see why the screen is not always correctly updated after the loading of a file.

Yes this has to do with the way xournal handles scribbles and the changes in the firmware for R2.0. The new firmware provides some functions that I may use to make the 'feeling' better. Otherwise I need to rewrite how xournal handles screen updates.

Do you mean on the screen or in the generated pdf? I shall check this.

Thanks for your feedback. Note that I am currently concentrating on the firmware updates so xournal updates are at a lower rate at this moment.

Mackx,
I've been trying out your latest version & it doesn't seem to update the screen when writing as quickly?smoothly as the old version (advanced refresh is selected) I too have noticed that it is a bit more jagged than previous (with the middle pen). I never could write neatly enough to use the fine one

Otherwise, I still use it all the time. Thanks for the efforts. I have also loaded your latest R.2 patch but so far not seen much difference in the limited use I've had since changing.

regards, Howard

In the latest version it doesn't appear to save the preferences. At least not when I try. Neither auto save nor a direct save. Whenever I start xournal it always returns to the default settings.

Hi Howard,

The place where the preferences are stored has changed form the 0.4 to the 0.5 version. Maybe it is related to that. Can you check if you have a \Programs\_config\.xournal-folder on your SDCard containing the file: config?
(Note that folders starting with a dot are not always shown on all operating systems.)
If not maybe it helps to create the \Programs\_config folder, or run the copyXournalConfig-script (icon is in Programs/Install) on your DR.

Marcel.

The copyXournalConfig-script or creating the folder?
(might be usefull for other user, and I might need to change my install script ).

Sorry Mackx,
I tried creating the folder but no change, but I ran the script and it's worked since then
