no tag panel, no slider on linux mint

Asked by william mann on 2018-09-04

I am trying to use RedNotebook. When I try to follow the instructions:

Todo list

You can also use RedNotebook as a todo list. An advantage is, that you never have to explicitly state the date when you added the todo item, you just add it on one day and it remains there until you delete it.

Here is how it works:

    Make sure the tag panel on the right is visible, if not drag the slider to the left.
    On the right click on "Add Tag"

I run into the problem that I have no tag panel, and no slider to drag to the left. I am using RedNotebook on Linux Mint 18.3

Can you help?

This documentation is outdated (and has been updated in the development
version). Please disregard the text about the TODO list.

Thanks for the quick response Jendrik! I will take a look at the development version.

I can't get the tag panel in Linux Mint.
How do I get it back?

You can set showTagsPane=1 in $HOME/.rednotebook/configuration.cfg .
