I've been using Electrum for few weeks now and it is my favorite desktop wallet! I'd like to thank developers for this great peace of software!
I have few questions if someone can help me out:
thanks! I will try to help you.
1. i don't understand why new addresses automatically appear in "Receive" tab.
your wallet generates new addresses everytime one of the last five addresses of its list is used.
this in order to ensure that all instances of a given wallet are synchronized.
(you can increase this parameter if you think that 5 in not enough, by editing the wallet file.)
2. Is it normal that "description" string (while sending BTCs) does not become "label" string in "Contacts" tab?
Official client works this way and I quite like that feature.
Problems occur when a given address is used in several transactions.
However, we could display a the description as "default label" for adresses that have no label. would that suit your need?
3. Why there is no icon for "password" in bottom right corner (XP port)? I see one in Ubuntu.
this is probably a bug.
can you post a screenshot?
also, do you use the binary version, or the python source?
4. Is there any plan for OSX version? That would be great!
I believe that the python source code can be used on OSX. please share your experience if you have tried and encountered problems.
@ThomasV: will this new feature allow 2 or more Electrum clients to be open at the same time and also to be used at the same time or would that cause problems?
it is not a new feature, it has been there for a long time.
yes, you can open multiple clients at the same time. you can open the same wallet on different computers, or different wallets on the same computer.
