04 Jun 2014 - bug in synchronization plugins.
  • Due to bug discovered by Striker in synchronization plugins it's strongly recommended to anyone who use such plugins (for Box, DropBox, FTP, GoogleDrive or SkyDrive) to update their plugins to recent version (1.1.3.0). Then any "pnotes.net" directory should be removed from service provider site (Box, DropBox etc) and synchronization has to be performed again. If you have synchronized your notes using "buggy" version of plugin and encounter troubles with loading notes: close the program, delete "notes.db3" file from "data" directory, run the program and manually add problem notes (by using "Load Note" menu item on main menu).
