Journal displays empty entries
If an empty entry was created for a journal index value, the original engine did not display it ingame nor notify a journal update.
(in 0.41. May 04 nightly)
(by the way the point of making an empty journal entry, instead of just using that number without creating an entry, is to make that journal title "Finish" or "Restart" without adding a new entry)
How can we reproduce this bug?
I don't know if the base game ever uses empty entries, it's probably just mods,
In this file I've added an empty finishing entry to A1_Dreams, if you use
Journal A1_Dreams 100
in the openMW console you will get the date added in the journal.
nor notify a journal update
Are you sure? I tested your plugin with original Morrowind. An empty entry indeed was not shown in journal, but I got a notify about journal was updated.
I'm sure it didn't notify while in dialogue, though journal entries with text and other messageboxes do display there. I guess it's different if you're not in dialogue then?

Yes, it's different. Why, Bethesda :( ?
Anyway, I suggest to do not display notification in both dialogue and non-dialogue mode.
But we need a feedback from other developers first.
