Formatted Documents

  • The flickering effect when tapping the text to start editing has been eliminated.
  • The Formatting buttons appear with a smoother animation and avoid extra scrolling.
  • On iPad Pro in split view, the extra keyboard keys show up as expected.
  • Opening “Look Up” to find a definition while editing no longer terminates the editing session.


  • Reliably convert very long Markdown documents.
  • We addressed a potential crash when using automatic Markdown detection in combination with automatic Dropbox sync.
  • Resolve an issue when the title contains umlauts on iOS 10.3.3.


  • Select the correct file extension when importing from other apps (avoid .file-url).
  • Using “Apply Current Style” for multiple books or duplicating books works as expected again.
  • Renaming a PDF document no longer produces the “Document not available” message.
  • When editing a document with an external keyboard on an iPhone, the toolbar no longer overlaps the text.

    I love Notebooks! I use it for all of my lesson plans.
    Are all of my documents backed up on iCloud? I would be devistated if I lost all of my work.
    Thank you!
