A couple people have brought up the idea here:
I wonder about the following:
- If a note is encrypted, should the note title be shown in the menu,
the table of contents, etc.? If not, what should be shown instead?
- Have one password for all encrypted notes or separate passwords for
each encrypted note? I think it'd be easier to remember passwords if
it was one password for all.
- How would other plugins interact with encrypted notes? The Export
to HTML and print plugin, for example. I guess if you were to
export/print an encrypted note, it'd prompt you for the password if it
wasn't already unlocked?
If you'd like to work on it, that'd be great! I don't know exactly
what's been talked about before, so your best bet might be to propose
your ideas as you start implementing them and get feedback.
