Everything that can go wrong will go wrong, and it will do so at the worst possible point in time. (Murphy’ Law – more or less)
After Notebooks 7.2 had been finalized, tested and was waiting for review at Apple, everything seemed set for the trip abroad, booked long ago. We had no idea that a case of Murphy’s Law was waiting around the corner…
It turned out that iOS 8 and the subsequent update to iOS 8.0.2 caused unexpected troubles, and being abroad with no regular internet connection, we had not chance to react in time. Many of you have experienced issues (see below), tried to contact us by email, on helpify or via our blog and had to wait much longer than usual to get a response. Actually, some of you are still waiting to hear back from us.
Despite the backlog of email we decided to give priority to fixing the issues, and today we sent an update to Apple for review. So if all goes well, you should have Notebooks 7.2.1 in your hands within the next couple of days.
Here is a summary of known issues and their current state:
- Strange scrolling behavior when editing formatted documents: fixed in Notebooks 7.2.1
- Prev/Next in search results does not work correctly: fixed in Notebooks 7.2.1
- Protected items do not display: this is caused by the new caching mechanism we introduced in Notebooks 7.2. You can quickly fix that yourself by deactivating caching in Notebooks’ settings > general, but in Notebooks 7.2.1 we will temporarily disable caching until it works more reliably.
- Printing not possible on iOS 8: fixed in Notebooks 7.2.1
- No timestamps and inserting images on iOS 7: fixed in Notebooks 7.2.1
It seems that the crashing issue (when launching Notebooks or when opening a file) is related to the selected time format. Changing that to 24 hours in iOS settings solves that. – We are working on a permanent solution.
