Notebooks 12 on iPad and iPhone

What’s New in Notebooks 12

Notebooks 12 for iPad and iPhone is a major upgrade and comes with many changes, improvements and additions. It runs on iOS 12 or higher, and it is a free upgrade for all users of Notebooks 11.

  • Notebooks 12 welcome you with a fresh App Iconrefined book and document icons and a modernized appearance.
  • With a simple gesture you can mark books and documents as Favorites, which adds them to a new smart book at Notebooks’ top level. Favorites are like a shortcut to items you need to access frequently, or a quick collection of items you want to temporarily group together for creating an eBook or a PDF, for example.
  • You can pin documents to the top of the list, independent of the selected sort order. On an iPad, Notebooks can automatically display a book’s first pinned document as index or default document.
  • It is easier than ever to select any book within Notebooks as Default Inbox. The inbox can appear as smart book, so even a deeply nested inbox is quickly available from the top level. Notebooks also uses different inboxes for different storage locations.
  • The Apple Watch App is much improved. It offers Complications for quick access, and it lists your Favorites and the contents of your Inbox, too. While notes display as plain text, Notebooks can lay out, indent and colorize the text if you want. And if you add or append to notes from your watch, Notebooks automatically extracts context tags.
  • Internal link and Wiki links resolve even smarter. With just a title or part of a filename given, Notebooks can find the target, no matter where it is located. So you are no longer forced to enter the full path – although you still can.
  • Notebooks now supports Automatic Link Management. This makes sure that links don’t break when you move or rename books and documents.
  • Documents can have Backlinks, which makes it easy to see which other documents are referencing or mentioning them.
  • To enter the path for a link, hit or tap the TAB button for a list of auto complete suggestions. This makes it much easier to add the path to any document within Notebooks.
  • The same auto complete is available for context tags, too.
  • If you are into screen writing you will be happy to hear that Notebooks now supports Final Draft documents. They display in a perfectly rendered layout, including scene numbers.

The full list of changes and additions is pretty extensive, you find all the details in a separate article.
