Title: 1.3.0-pre7
Post by: Kostya Vasilyev on December 16, 2013, 02:33:06 am
Version 1.3.0-pre7

* Fixed "load completely" and "show images" panels not showing or overlapping message text on Android 4.4.

Also fixed sending Google Keep images.

About the panels fix:

The issue is caused by substantial changes in Android's WebView in 4.4 (stop me if you've heard this from me before).

There were two ways to fix it, and I had to choose the "easier and less perfect" way, in order to be able to ship an update to Google Play this year. Yes, it's "getting late".

As part of the fix, I had to disable those +/- zooming buttons, as they were popping up in the weirdest places (outside of the actual message area).

The good part is, I was able to keep double-tap zooming (stock 4.4 Email outright does not support this, I guess for the same reasons).

I was also able to keep pinch zoom working in case of "short" messages, i.e. those that only take up a portion of the screen in the vertical direction.

I believe the right way to describe how all these things (zooming, pinch and double-tap gestures) interact, affecting each other, is known as "Gordian knot".

A better way to handle this mess does exist, but trying to do it now would push the release out too far. The Android Gmail app does it by getting a lot of help from their servers, which probably took dozens of man-years to implement.

Tried to add multiple images into a new email. Here only working with a file explorere like Total Commander.
Not working with QuickPic or the stock gallery on 4.2.2

Regarding EWS: when giving a star to a message, it looks a bit strange in Outlook: instead of a red flag the mail has an icon consisting of a small red flag and a person. However, such mails do not turn up in the 'For follow up' folder.
Mails starred in Enhanced Email or Thunderbird (IMAP) do show up properly. I still have to test if IMAP-starred messages are OK.

Enhanced Email is ActiveSync, Thunderbird is IMAP.

Flagged messages show with a red flag in my Exchange Online account, and are also marked (if you open them) as "follow up needed" or something like that...

Do you web mail in this account? Can you check what it looks like there?

@Thomas - technically, the ability to request multiple items was only added in 4.4, for the all-new built-in "Unified Document Management and Picking Affordance (tm)".

There is no reason file manager-like apps can't use it on earlier Android versions, down to 4.1, but that has to be done in those respective apps. It's a safe bet that Gallery won't, since that's part of Android.

Indeed, in webmail I just see a red flag. But, also in webmail they are not visible in the folder 'For Follow Up'. If I flag another mail in webmail the flag does look identical to the aqua-mail flagged ones but it does immediately show up in 'For Follow Up'.

Attached is a screenshot of Outlook 2010 with the two different icons. The top one is the normal flag, the other two are set in Aqua-mail.

When digging a bit more in Outlook: I think the symbol that is used in the Aqua-mail flagged items is intended for mails that are flagged by the sender, intended to make a follow-up, not the ones that are flagged by the recipients.

Thanks for investigating. I'll dig around in the docs tomorrow, to see if there is a different way to flag a message.

I have a special issue, but I'm not sure it is due to this beta version,
the DRAFTS box contains sent messages, but in advanced settings I cannot modify that issue.
I select "send box" and I set to synchronize as sent email, but the result is not correct.
Other folders are OK.

thanks for your help

I believe it's a translation issue, have had several native Italian speakers tell me what "drafts" and "sent" are called in Italian -- and each time it was different.

What are the right translations for "drafts" and "sent"?

Oh, and the way to reassign folders is to long press the account, then choose Options and Folders -> Folders.

Hi,

thanks for this reply...

English                             Italian
_________________________________________________________
Drafts                               Bozze
Sent                                 Posta inviata
Trash                               Cestino
Inbox                               Posta in arrivo
Outgoing                         Posta in uscita
Spam/Junk mail               Spam/Posta indesiderata      (I think Spam and Junk email is the same, if not, separate)

If you need support for italian translatio, I'm happy to do... ;)

I hope you can update translation in next pre7.5   ::)


regards

- Updated Italian translation

- "Message count" widget design tweaks
("How come your widgets' unread counts look different from the SMS app on my Samsung, are you stupid or what?")

- Made EWS message flagging work better.. flagged messages now show as tasks in Outlook.
(I tested with Outlook 2013. There are some details where it could be better still, but the documentation seems to contradict itself...)

- Updated Italian translation



you are simply the best!
It is nice and interesting follow your development in Aqua...

Only a comment,

there is a folder named Bozze/Posta in uscita (in English Drafts/Outgoing), I think there is a difference, Drafts are messages saved but not ready to send, Outgoing are messages waiting to be sent, because the connectio is not available, for example...
Si I think different status.



thanks for all

Oh, changing the strings was easy, since I - finally - knew what they should be, thanks to you!
