Notebooks for Mac 2.0.1 addresses a few issues that were reported by our users.

Plain Text

  • Ignore keyboard shortcuts for read only document.
  • Correctly align text on ruled background with overscrolling enabled.
  • Fine tuned the way automatically insert closing characters works.
  • Text documents no longer show a dark stripe instead of the scrollbar on macOS 10.13 or earlier, with scrollbars set to “always visible”.

Formatted Documents

  • When adding a table in the middle of a line, the table is added immediately after the current paragraph.
  • Toggling the list style with cmd-L now includes checklists.
  • Fine tuned the way automatically insert closing characters works.


  • Notebooks’ default Markdown converter correctly resolves multiple references to the same footnotes.


  • The outline uses the setting Use color label as background color from preferences.
  • The selected book’s font remains dark (light theme).


  • The setting for line spacing accepts all available values.
  • New option to select a fixed font size for print and PDF conversion.


  • Sharing from a document’s action menu tries to send the text instead of an attachment, if possible. Sharing from the File Menu or document list always sends the selected items as attachment.
  • Duplicating a task with due date copies the due date as well.
  • The toolbar buttons appear with correct size and without overlapping title.
  • Notebooks no longer quits when closing the last window.
  • If the document browser is hidden when closing Notebooks, it remains hidden after relaunch.
  • Keyboard shortcut cmd-alt-B shows the document browser.
  • Extra document windows are restored in correct back to front order when starting Notebooks.
  • macOS 10.15: renaming and reordering books in the outline works as expected.
