KhatzuMemo Update–Recycle Bin, View Text As Image

Rejoice! Another update to KhatzuMemo is here! New features include:

  • Recycle Bin: all deleted items automatically go to the recycle bin. They can be restored/undeleted, or you can empty the recycle bin outright [you need to to scroll to the bottom of the screen to do so; this is a precaution to prevent accidental emptying]. Deleting items from the recycle bin causes them to be deleted for real. Gone. No coming back. No retcon.
  • View Text as Image: this is still an experimental function and has a lot of limitations. Its purpose is to allow one to read Chinese on a typical Japanese cellphone (while Chinese and Japanese both use kanji/hanzi, there are some Chinese kanji that are currently outside of most Japanese character sets for data processing…sad), by converting the text to an image. If you plan on using this, be warned that it is very picky. It only works when all the text is full-width, including Arabic numerals, Roman letters, spaces and punctuation. Here are some examples of input.
    • OK (these will be converted properly to an image)

    With regards to the “text as image,” this is interesting. Perhaps one thing you can do is set up an option to have the image show without clicking on the button to push it. That way it’s up right when the user comes to the entry. This would be useful in the event that, say, a user is using a computer without Japanese text support (say, a certain work computer).

    It’s an CJK (Chinese/Japanese/Korean) computer text processing thing, but:
    107 is full-width,
    107 is half-width (and narrower than 107).
    I don’t know exactly why the difference exist, probably in order to fit Arabic numerals and Roman text seamlessly with CJK text; full-width fits better. Having said that, half-width seems fashionable lately. Half-width is what you generally use if typing, say, English.

    I have a request!

    Please make the “Good job!” 100% done page not redirect automatically, and just let people click on a continue link. Getting to that page is hard work! I want to gaze at it for a moment in all its glory…
