As many of you noticed, the latest version of Notebooks for Mac/PC still had a few startup issues. It took us a while to track down and fix those issues, but now an update is available for download.

As far as functionality is concerned, beta 7.2 is pretty much the same as beta 7, except that we made a few interface refinements. There is one very convenient addition, though: Notebooks’ File Menu now offers a list of Recent Items. This is not the final solution and we will definitely find a better location for them, but working with recent items is just so convenient that we had to enable them for all of you…

    Pandoc headers end up with a % at the beginning of the file name.

      Yes, we have noticed that too late, unfortunately, but we will take care of it ASAP.

    Overall a cool product … but if i would have paid for it … i would be very disapointed … i paied for the IPAD version … it is amazing! Good work…

    But with the desktop version , i miss “protection” of the books with passcode … TAGS would be nice (like in macjournal) … to be onest … i used MAcjournal a lot and switched to Nootebooks because of the dropbox-Sync and the fact that the macjournal does not Sync pictures … so for i am waiting for improvment on the desktop version.
    Sorry for my bad english, but i am not a nativ speaker,

      Dear Amon,

      Thank you for your comment. We also feel that a few essential components are still missing, which is why Notebooks for Mac/PC is still available for free. Protection, Tags, Search or Smart Books are just a few of those topics, but they are on our road map. – The iPad version is at least two years ahead, so it will take some time until the desktop version has caught up…

    Not sure if this is the best way to provide feedback on the beta or not. So far I’m very impressed with using the iPad / iPhone versions and am using the Mac version to manage files for projects and syncing via DropBox. Had one early comment / request on the Mac beta. It would be nice to have the option to show file name extensions for items in notebooks, at least for items not recognized by type. An “Open with…” context menu would be beneficial as well. Please let me know if there is a more appropriate mechanism for posting beta feedback.

      Hi David,

      thank you for your feedback (leaving a reply here or contacting us by mail, are both welcome).

      The “Open with…” option is on our todo list and I hope we can provide that soon. In the meantime you could use the “Open” option, which opens the selected document in the default application.

      The file name extension currently is visible from a document’s info (available from the context menu); do you think that might be sufficient? If not, we’ll try to add an option to NB’s preferences.

      Thanks again and best regards,

        Alfons – Thanks for the reply.

        I discovered the ability to see the file type in the “Info” view and that helps. After having worked with the application a bit more, I think what might be more helpful would be the ability to identify additional file name extensions as “text” files that could be viewed / edited directly in Notebooks (this would be possibly even more beneficial in the iPad / iPhone apps actually). I have a mix of files in projects that have different extensions but are just plain text files (e.g. .sql, .dat, .c, etc.) and being able to view those quickly in Notebooks would be helpful. I could still see a benefit with having the option of viewing the file name extension though.

        Glad to hear “Open with…” is on the ToDo list. I’m looking forward to new versions and have been telling friends and co-workers about the app (and Don McAllister’s ScreenCasts).

    I’m so glad that there’s a PC version- thank you, thank you. A small thing, but what about making the font just look bigger on PC? I know I can chnage the size of the font, but I want keep working in my chosen font, but I just want it to look bigger. Thansks again!

    Have started using Notebooks on both PC and Mac as well as iOs – looking to have it organize materials for home and business. However…. I have to admit that I miss an in-app search (though of course I can run searches from Spotlight or WIndows).

    thanks for the work. It has been great to have an application ported to both Mac and WIndows platforms. Horrendously useful and I like that it keeps the materials in their original form.
