Author/Date folder security options

If you add user access permissions in folder properties, for instance, a folder containing sensitive contact details, then when loading up iscribe the password permission window comes up right from the start, and you have to enter a password before iscribe fully loads. It's a bit of a bore, is there any way round that?

I suggest you don't put permissions on one of the base folders, instead create a subfolder under that folder and put the permissions on that. If it's a sub-folder of /Contacts it'll still be accessible in the add contact UI, it searches sub-folders for contacts too.

I'm perhaps particularly thick, but I don't get it. No matter whether I set permissions for the main contacts folder or any subfolder, upon loading iscribe I'm asked for a password before being able to use the program - it would be better, to my eyes anyway, if the password was asked for only when trying to access a particular folder...

When it askes you for a password during startup, what is the text on the dialog?

It says Enter user access password for '/contacts/...

I've added code to ignore folders with permissions when doing lookups for contact records, i.e. when you enter recipients, it searchs the contact DB.

This will be in the next release.
