I'm interested in using the SharpROM Calendar (datebook), Address (addressbook) and Todo (todolist) apps after conversion to English with Stubear's script, but I've found a few problems:


display view:
-field names obscure values: department, work fax, work zip, home fax, home zip, birthday, nickname, anniversary
-address formatting prints fields together without spaces
-cant change full name format
-some fields not displayed
-sorted by pronunciation, none comes first, within none strange order
edit view:
-doesnt automatically include all populated fields
-switches to j input for some fields
-some field names in edit view in japanese
beam from palm:
-cant receive records with custom fields
-all categories -> unfiled


-very slow to load (>1m)
-keeps rescanning for link files
-cant disable link file for internal flash
-very slow to rescan link files
-event view description label obscures start of value
-no compress day view
-repeat has 5th n-day of month rather than last
-lame time picker
-no category
-cant delete single occurence of repeating event
-beamed from palm loses repeat
-doesnt show events in next/prev month on month view
-no note indication
-shows only due noncompleted tasks only in today day view, all in list and 3 (scroll) in time
-doesnt sort tasks
-doesnt show due date (except for over) or priority
-slows down system (mem use?)


-sorts no duedate less than duedate
-doesnt show notes in list view
-doesnt use start date (does in datebook)
-clumsy note box in edit view
-cant sort by priority and duedate
-loses category when beamed from palm
-long english field names obscure values
-list view datefmt 04/12/31
-doesnt add more rows for smaller fonts

Most of these problems are just annoyances, lack of expected functionality, or can be avoided once known, so the biggest problem is probably the obscuring of field values by the labels. Is there any way of fixing that? Can the English strings be shortened somehow, or the column spacing changed? Are there any fixes for any of the other problems?
