Formatted Documents

  • No longer exclude protected items from search when Notebooks is unlocked.

Misc

  • Display a message when a Markdown checkbox cannot be toggled (cannot find task in plain text).
  • The keyboard shortcut Cmd-w to toggle word count works as expected.
  • The currently edited document no longer moves to the end of the list when using custom sort order.

    I think that the advanced delete function consists of two steps: select and delete. Why not take out the select function separately? Advanced deletion for translators is a minority-needed feature , and these advanced selection features are what the majority needs.

    In addition, I think function keys about copy, cut, and paste should be added, which are common in other editors with function keys.

    Another advice, if (…) key was modified to 【…】or (…), the name of the keys became the same. So naming each key was needed.

    With these functions, I think notebooks are perfect.

      Thank you for your suggestions. – I like the idea of an option to separate select from delete. This would make the keys even more versatile and easier to understand for the casual user. And then, cut/copy/paste are a must as well 🙂

      Regarding (…): this extra key for parenthesis is actually no longer necessary, since Notebooks 10 offers an option to automatically insert the closing characters for you. So you just type “(” – from the regular keyboard or from a custom extra key – and Notebooks automatically adds “)” for you.

        Hi Alfons,

        Thanks for your replying. In my opinion, (…) key is not only used for paired symbols, but also for quick input of custom phrases, so it is still necessary.Custom phrases are usually quite long, and it would be great to rename them with one or two letters.

          Now I know what you are referring to. Separate the key’s label from the produced text is on our list 🙂

      Hi Stefanie,

      apart from cut/copy/paste discussed in the previous comment, which extra shortcuts would improve your workflow?

        Hello Alfons,

        as I use my iPad mostly for typing, I have an external keyboard as it is much faster.

        Currently, I can invoke fullscreen within Notebooks but it would be great to have functionality for navigation through folders, search, new document (ie MarkDown), and probably for other users text formatting (usually I type in MarkDown therefore, I would not need text formatting), export or Open in…

        Thanks
        Stefanie

          Hi Stefanie,

          some of the shortcuts you mention (new document, search, formatting etc.) are already available. You always find a list of shortcuts applicable in the “current context” by holding down the command key on the external keyboard. There are shortcuts for navigating documents and navigating “back” to the previous book, but navigating books in general is a bit tricky with keyboard shortcuts.

          A shortcut for “Open in…” sounds like a very good idea – although the selection of the target app needs to be done on screen again. But still, it saves one or two taps. We’ll see what we can do 🙂

            Hi Alfons,

            Unfortunatly, there are no short cuts from the main screen. If I like to drill down to a book for instance it is not possible or selecting a book und see it‘s contents. After I am within a book it is fine.
            My request is more from the main screen onwards. There is only the option full screen and previous/next document but I have my books on the left side.

            Thanks
            Stefanie

              Hi Stefanie,

              I was expecting you to suggest shortcuts for drill down 🙂 On iOS, that is a bit tricky interface wise, but I see that it would improve productivity. Then we just need another shortcut to start editing the selected document… I have put that on our list, we’ll see what we can come up with.
