Notebooks 10.2.1 is a minor update which mainly addresses a few issues regarding formatted documents, but it also adds a few nice improvements.

User Interface

Notebooks and the joy of writing
  • Refined appearance of color labels and selected items in the list of books and documents.
  • The preview text for documents applies slightly wider line spacing.

Formatted Documents

  • Formatted documents provide “Select” and “BIU” from the edit (popup) menu.
  • Links to external apps work as expected again.
  • Tapping a footnote in a formatted document or Markdown reliably jumps to the target, and no longer makes the document editable.

Plain Text

  • Plain text documents reliably scroll to last opened position when hyphenation is active.

Markdown

  • Markdown fixes a rendering issue for fenced code blocks, especially when they contain HTML code.
  • More carefully paste URLs as Markdown.
  • We also update the default Markdown converter to better handle edge cases.

Misc

  • The new timestamp format “13:34” does not adjust to selected keyboard (thus avoiding switch to “1:34 PM” when changing language).
  • Correctly create PDF from a book’s process menu.
  • Improve reliability of Dropbox synchronization.
  • More carefully handle attachments when importing Evernote notes.
  • Add Open Sans font.
  • Multiple smaller fixes and improvements.

Notebooks 10.2.1 is available on the App Store. Should you run into any issues, please let us know.

    I love this app but I don’t like the new book or document select colours or style, can we change it back to 10.20?

      This “evolution” was inspired by the interface changes in iOS 14 and macOS 11. Compared to those, Notebooks’ rectangular color labels somewhat seemed out of place. So, please give it a day or two and see how you think about Notebooks 10.2.1 then 😉

    Hi Alfons,

    First thing I have to say (again!) is “Thank you for the awesome app! It’s the center of my iPad universe now… (and I still can’t believe you found that hidden “Open in” functionality by tap-holding on the app after Apple moved it without telling anyone!)”

    Can you tell me what the magic character is for extra keyboard Markdown table functionality?

      Never mind (on the question) – I see now that what I saw in your release notes pertained to formatted documents, not markdown… But the well-deserved praise still stands!

        Thanks a lot Mark 🙂

        Markdown keyboard shortcuts for tables would be a bit challenging, but thinking about it… maybe we can come up with something 😉

        That tip on how to find “Open in” on iOS 14 might be worth an extra posting here, because I guess that many users – not only Notebooks users – are having a tough time finding it…

    Alfons,

    I definitely agree that a separate post would be useful. This was one of the most counter-intuitive changes Apple has made to an existing feature – I don’t know how you found the long-tap for “Open in…”. I use it in Working Copy and several other apps.
