Notebook 2018  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 4.79
by: Phuein [More]
Gift me @phuein in-game, if you have extra crowns and appreciate my addons. (Can even ask which DLC I missed.) Thank you!

This is a changed, updated, and fixed version of the addon Notebooks by Glen348 that is now outdated. There is only one notebook now, instead of three. I personally use Shift+F or F1 to display the notebook (KeyBindings -> User Interface -> Notebook.) /nb will also display it. And /nbs will display the settings menu.


Recommendations:
  • Backup your notes outside of the game! You can copy & paste them anywhere, like a .txt file or your Google Docs, or...

  • Back up your data file by copying it or with Google Drive Sync at:
    C:\Users\%USERNAME%\Documents\Elder Scrolls Online\live\SavedVariables\Notebook2018.lua

  • Before changing your character's name, back up its Notebook. [I haven't tested this myself, so please post in the comments if a name-change loses its Notebook or not.] (Shouldn't affect the Account-Wide Notebook.)

  • After writing meaningful changes to your Notebook, you must use /reloadui (in the chat) to immediately save them to file! Otherwise, there is a risk that a game-crash will lose all those changes.


This fork changes the following:
  • Fixed positioning of elements.

  • Fixed a bug with page options displaying incorrectly for new pages.

  • Improved default settings.

  • Using Escape now closes the notebook (as part of SCENE_MANAGER.)

  • Fixed and changed when confirmation dialogues appear. (Deleting will always request confirmation!)

  • Double clicking a word will only select that word. Please use Ctrl+A to select the whole page. (This can be changed in Settings.)

  • Fixed the Title and Page from showing and allowing writing, when there is no page selected.

  • The button in chat is now positioned better, and its position can be offset within limit.

  • The settings menu is now organized by categories.

  • Max characters per page is 1,900.
    NOTE: Unicode characters take extra space! And up to 3,000 characters can be displayed for editing purposes.

  • The Undo button has been removed. (Selecting any page will undo your changes.)

  • The info icon has been updated.

  • Fixed a visual issue with the z-index of page selection buttons.


And adds the following:
  • New Page Title now defaults to current time and date (or "New Page" if that fails.)

  • Page moving Up / Down buttons for sorting pages easily.

  • Text Formatting display mode that shows colors, images, and more. It's on by default when not editing the text.

  • An option in Settings for when Edit Mode is entered and exited (default is Clicking.)

  • An option in Settings to select a default New Page Title.

  • An Account-Wide mode that uses the same Notebook for all characters in your account. Its pages & settings are separate and do not affect the characters' pages & settings.
    NOTE: Each character has to activate it for itself.

  • An option in Settings to overwrite the Account-Wide Notebook with data from the current character's pages & settings.

  • An option in Settings to disable /read and /idle when opening and closing the Notebook.

  • An option in Settings for Line Selection with Tripleclick (Doubleclick+1).
    BUG: Doesn't work correctly with UTF/Unicode characters and some texts. Unfixable.

  • An option in Settings to change Text Selection highlight color.

  • Scrolling control (and fix) for Formatted and Edit Text modes.

  • An option in Settings to toggle Formatted Text Mode (colors, images) as an override (if you just want it off.)

  • An option in Settings to change the text color in the Notebook.

  • When editing a page, a character counter will display at the bottom-right.

  • An option in Settings to overwrite another account's Account-Wide or another character's Character-Wide Notebook (same account or another) on the same PC.
    WARNING: It is strongly recommended that you back up your notes before committing any overwrites. (Please report if this is working for you.)

  • A right-click menu to page selection.

  • A Send as Mail menu option that opens your Mail Send dialog, puts the page's title as the mail subject, and the page's content as the mail body. NOTE: Page title max-length has been set to match mail subject max-length. And the recipient field will not be changed in your mail.

  • Dividers between pages. To create a divider, just change a page's title to "---" (3 dashes) and when you save the page it will show. (The divider is also still a page, so it can have content.)

  • The Notebook will always load into the last selected page (even after logout.)

  • A Copy from Mail menu option that copies the subject and body of your currently selected mail item in your inbox, into the open page's title and text. NOTE: This does not also save the page for you. Option only available when right-clicking the current page.

  • An option in Settings to set the book's texture (style) between: Paper, Rubbing, and Skin.

  • An option in Settings to display the Notebook over other UI elements, to assist with taking notes, such as during quest dialogues. NOTE: Enabled by default.

  • A Copy Random Line page menu option that copies a random line from the page into the chatbox. NOTE: Will not pick the same line twice.

  • An option in Settings to make chat-links clickable inside the Notebook. NOTE: Enabled by default.

  • A Toggle Markup text menu option that toggles the new official Text Formatting (colors, images) mode. NOTE: My old method that allowed this is now hopefully redundant, and is disabled entirely.

  • Added a Russian translation. Thanks to user GJSmoker for improving it!

Addon Development

First off I would like to say that this is an incledible addon to ESO. I found it really useful in many ways. I save build, mark spots, track stuff etc. I saw the first addon of this series called ZAM notebook so you can clearly see that this addon came a long way to get to this point. It is a very helpful addon but it even though its the best note making addon around I think it could still use a bit of a improvement.

0. Font size (or maybe line size if necessary) - I mean this is something this addon needs for easier reading.

1. Website links - When you write a link to a website it would ask you if you wish to open the website after clicking on it. For example addon called p-chat adds link to open in your browser.

2. Accidental click - When you accidentaly click on another note while working on another one, add a question window, if you click on continue your work on this window wont be saved. Now it wont save the note and people might loose their notes.

3. Linked stuff. - When you click on item in chat, it opens this item info tab. It would prob require some grayish background for visibility in those notes, but it would be a really good addition after all. It could work for any item. (armour piece, food, achievement etc.)

3.B - Add and extra item window where you can create your own items and them link them into the chat. Now you have to own it or ask someone else to link it in order to save it. This could make this a lot easier .

These things mentioned above would make a good addition into notebook 2018. But even without those things its an outstanding addon we all thank you for the great work sir!

I have one more small request for a future update:
When saving mails to the notebook, it would be great to also save the name of the sender (account name) of the mail (and maybe also the date of delivery/saving?). This would allow to use the notebook also as a great storage for important mails (sender name and date is essential in my eyes).

Thanks for this really simple and great addon and for considering my requests
Best regards

You're welcome! If you want to discuss more requests to extend the addon, feel free to PM me to figure out some agreement.

Incompatibility with Postmaster Mail

Hello,

I use your addon together with Postmaster Mail and there is a little incompatibility issue. You both uses the tertiary key-bind in the mail scene to assign actions. Postmaster want to use the tertiary assignment for replying mails while your addon assign the key for saving mails to the notebook.

I easily solved the issue for me by changing the keybind in line 98 in "Startup.lua":
Lua Code:
  1. UI_SHORTCUT_QUATERNARY
instead
Lua Code:
  1. UI_SHORTCUT_TERTIARY

However, for many users this is not a easy solution. Maybe you can implement an simple workaround like using quaternary key instead the tertiary?

I also posted this issue here at the comment section of Postmaster. Would be great if you developers can solve this little incompatibility

Thanks for consideration and best regards

I get a lot of use out of the note book for things like puzzles and such but when I have a book or note open its hard to also have the notebook itself open at the same time.

Is there a way to resize the note book that I am not seeing or is there a single page mode? If not is there any chance something like that could be added, I feel like it would be super helpful so you can more easily take notes while a book is open.

Thanks for the awesome addon

Thanks

I personally just use /say for anything I need to remember for immediate use. You could go to the addon settings and Unlock the Notebook's position, to move it aside and see other UI windows. I also use a shortcut with F4 (check Hotkeys in game settings) to quickly toggle the Notebook, which lets me review anything else and go back to taking notes quickly.

For more specific requests you can PM me here.

Hi symkain. Thanks for the compliment! I'm glad people are still enjoying the Notebook even in 2020.

There isn't a way that I know of to export in-game data into a friendly format, like a text file. The contents is saved by the game into:
C:\Users\%USERNAME%\Documents\Elder Scrolls Online\live\SavedVariables\Notebook2018.lua

And it's not a pretty format, either. I don't know if anybody else made a solution for this, but I can imagine a simple script that loads the JSON contents of the file and extracts the pages' data into a new file, would do the trick. If you're interested in trying that, I suggest using Python. Otherwise, you could post a request in the forums here at "AddOn Search/Requests."
