Minor problem with generated "fieldNotes.txt" of addon "Field Notes"

Solved

Hello,

yesterday I discovered a minor problem with the generated "fieldNotes.txt" file generated by the addon "Field Notes".

I. e. as you can read here: http://gsak.net/board/index.php?showtopic=31151&st=0 the field note of the last entry of the "fieldNotes.txt" is not correct imported to GSAK due of missing of the terminating Cr/Lf at the end of the "fieldNotest.txt" file. (the last quotation mark is also importet to the edit field "Field notes").

The missing of Cr/Lf seems to be not standard of Garmin created "geocache_visits-txt".

So could you please add a terminating Cr/Lf to the generated "fieldNotes.txt" file? Thanks. I attached an example fieldnotest.txt file.

Just a minor warning to Ormoru, geocaching.com is also quite sensitive to such characters, so be careful and test result also on gc.com web page.

Hello,

if necessary I can attach an original "geocache_visits.txt" file created by a garmin unit (Oregen 400t).

Hi CSG

how do you import FN into GSAK? I try macro FieldNotesImporAndLog.gsk and it is ok.

Thanks

Hi Jarda,

I import FN via "Geocaching.com access -> Publish logs ...", Button "Fetch", "Menuitem "From file".

There is the problem with the quotation mark at the FN of the last entry of "fieldnotes.txt".

If I add a Cr/Lf at the and of the file via notepad++ by simply pressing the return key everything works as expected.

I try your step without error. There is a file, which I try.

Hi Jarda,

you will see the "problem" after importing my example "fieldnotes.txt" file when you select "Psalm 34" cache and then click the "Edit" button. The edit field "Field notes:" contains the info 16:15 Uhr". But "correct" is 16:15 Uhr, i. e without the last quotation mark.

Hi Jarda.

same "problem" with your fieldnotes.txt. The content of the edit field "Field notes" of GCAP0F contains as the last character a unneccessary quotation mark, i. e.:

Correct: ... oid.locus.addonn.fieldnotes).*
"Wrong": .... oid.locus.addonn.fieldnotes).*"
