Bug Description

I have just installed today 0.45

I create a new notebook but no home page is saved as default, as it used to be in version 0.44

See print screen attached

Is it a bug?

Also the notebooks created with zim 0.44 open when I 2x click on a notebook.zim file or use the zim GUI, but the pages do not display any content in zim 0.45 (blank pages).

Can you run "zim -D" from a terminal (after closing all zim windows and trayicon) and attach the output ?

importance: Undecided → Critical

Stupid last minute fix before release broke the template for new pages. Effectively making it impossible to open any page that does not yet exist.

I am having this problem with ZIM .53

I cannot create a new page. If I select "create new page" from the right-click menu in the index pane, and once the dialog appears, if I begin to type into the text field to enter the page name, my whole system freezes. The only work-around I have found is to use copy/paste into that same input box for the new page name and there is no problem. I can create new page also with camelcase entries. It only happens when I directly type into the input box. I just cannot create a new page in the most obvious or normal way. This has happened to me countless times because I keep forgetting that this problem is there. Other than that, love my ZIM...!

I am using Ubuntu 10.04 LTS.
