Lotropad window
 
Description
Overview

Lotropad is a simple notepad plugin which you can use to quickly write down some notes without exiting the game. It can be used for, for example, cutting and pasting text to and from chat windows and storing reference information such as instance tactics or LOTRO Store shopping lists .

Big thanks to Vevenalia for the French translation!

Features
  • 10 note pages, each of which can be named
  • Image notes
  • Movable and resizable window
  • Adjustable font size, window opacity, and visibility on load
  • Movable button for toggling Lotropad window
  • NEW: Mini mode, right-click the button to switch between normal and mini mode

Installation
  • Unzip the plugin to your 'Documents/The Lord of the Rings Online/Plugins' folder

How to use
  • To load the plugin type /plugins load lotropad.
  • You can show and hide Lotropad window by clicking the Lotropad icon (visible by default). Button can be moved by dragging it. Position of the button is saved when clicking 'save all'.
  • Right-click the Lotropad icon to switch between normal and mini mode. In the mini mode, everything else is hidden except the text of the note.
  • Click and drag from the bottom right corner of the window to resize it.
  • Click and drag the title bar to move the window.
  • To save your notes click Save all, this will save the contents of all your notes. The write procedure is delayed so it might take a moment to be executed. Notes are currently saved per account which means that all of your characters on all servers can access them. Note that pressing Set will only set the title and text for the current note. However, this is also done automatically as you click through your notes.
  • Click settings to adjust the font size (main text field only), window opacity, and window visibility on load.
  • You can set a background, such as a map or tactics diagram, for a note. First copy the image (jpg or tga only) to images folder under the Lotropad plugin folder. Then click Img and type the image filename to the text field. Clicking Set image sets the image as the new background and Clear image removes the background image.
  • Answers to commonly asked questions can be found here

Command line options
  • /lotropad show - shows the Lotropad window
  • /lotropad hide - hides the Lotropad window
  • /lotropad toggle - toggles the Lotropad window
  • /lotropad - lists command line options

Known issues
  • When the whole note does not fit the window, the position of the scroll bar always moves to the end when the note is opened.
  • The plugin might still have problems with German or French clients
  • Background images might not be visible with some skins. This depends on how the alpha channel is set in ArtAssetID "black_translucent" image.

so if I understand correctly in the old version max. the number of notes was broken down so that for each note a separate display was created so if I wanted to create another note I had to add the whole string of displays for each note separately while the whole string of displays was in one block in one place.
and in the new version it is shown in two places, the display of the note icons is in one place (lines 256-261) but max. allowed number of notes is in another place (lines 19-25)
do I understand this correctly?
Yes, I realized that in the old version, adding notes was troublesome. So I made this modification with which you can change amount of notes on just one line (just 21).

thank you for the explanation, but I still don't see in your modified version of LotropadWindow max. the number of notes, which in the old version is clearly listed, so they are permanently listed what was convenient for me in case I need to create additional slots for notes (notes 20+)
Oh right, the number of notes on that modified version is on a variable called NoteCount, and it's set to 20 on line 21. Does this help you? You should be able to set this to anything (within reason and screen space) you want just by adjusting this line.

Thanks for trying, I haven't updated the plugin yet because I've been waiting for your response. Thank you for the modified LotropadWindow.lua but I can't ask you where the individual "actions for slot buttons" are listed in your modified LotropadWindow.lua file, somehow I can't find them.
I am sending you my modified LotropadWindow.lua as I have modified it. modified in my modified LotropadWindow.lua "actions for slot buttons" are on lines 252 to 398 and something like that is missing in your LotropadWindow.lua.
In the modified version of LotropadWindow it is on lines 256-261 and part of the button loop. In the original version it was a bit sillier and listed individually. I was hoping that it would work for you as is.

I have a minor problem with the update
based on advice from another user, I modified the plugin (privately) so that I raised the max. the number of notes from 10 to 20 and I have them all filled and when I update the plugin I will lose these data that I have in the notes 10+ but since it was a long time ago when I did it I can not find advice on the basis of which I modified the plugin so I would he wanted to ask whether such an adjustment could not be incorporated officially
note: the plugin worked for me without updating
Yes, I see. Actually, I once started Lotropad2 which would have had more customization like that, but I didn't get too far as I wasn't active in lotro anymore.

I did make a quick mod for you. It's a single file which you need to replace a file with the same name in Lotropad plugin directtory. It has configurable amount of notes, although it's hardcoded on line 21.

If you give it a try, remember to make a backup of your LotropadData.plugindata first. Also, you will lose data if you decide to change the amount of notes to be smaller later.

File can be downloaded here:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/0b6i3p917u...indow.zip?dl=0

Unfortunately, if you already lost notes after using the updated version instead of your modded version, then I'm afraid I cannot help :-(.

I thought I did that as well and did another version bump to be sure, but the same thing happened and zip didn't update - go figure. Version 0.82 in the file history is available though and has the same fixes. My other plugin worked ok and gave the new zip.

I updated the plugin, and hopefully it will now work with update 29. Thanks go mostly to Garan who provided some tips and example code on the plugin author forums.

Did you enter the filename correctly? If not, the background will turn gray, and there should be an error message in the chat window:
...gs Online\Plugins\Chiran\Lotropad\LotropadWindow.lua: 622: Failed to load background image.
Note that the filename is case-sensitive and must include the extension (.jpg). If you have any non-English characters in the filename, you might try renaming it.
yes, I copied the name directly from the name of the picture and then put it into the plugin, and since English is not my native language so I use the names in the alphabet without diacrystals (I'm Slovak) because I know from English on sometimes a problem with diacritics

exactly what pises I did and if you read my report, one of the formats was the .jpg format.

when I saved the image to Documents / The Lord of the Rings Online / Plugins / Chiran / Lotropad / images and the following game tried to load it so the only change was from the background of the plugin window changed color to lighter shades (I mean window when ) and then I turned off and turned on the game and log on the character so the plugin disappeared and I got a message about the error
