    So exciting! Question Alfons, Is it possible to incorporate handwritten annotations to documents you create on NB for iPad?

      Hi Robert,

      we will provide that for PDF documents, but for other document types I am afraid we won’t have a solution soon. The reason is that we are trying hard to stick with standard document formats, and as soon as we start adding annotations to a text document, we need to introduce something “proprietary”…

        How do you create an e-book? Are there instructions anywhere?

        • April 10, 2014 at 9:41 am

          There are several ways to create an eBooks:

          – to convert a single document, select “Process > Create eBook” from the action menu
          – to create an eBook from multiple documents, select them in the list and the pick Create eBook
          – finally, to convert a whole book and all of its contents, select “Process > Create eBook” from the book’s action menu

          You find more details in the handbook (Books > Actions for Books)

      It’s been more than a couple of days. Any update? I have been checking the app store daily with no sight of Notebooks for Mac

      • April 10, 2014 at 9:29 am

        We sent it off to Apple yesterday, now Notebooks is waiting for review… But you can continue to use the latest beta in the meantime.

          Great news!

        • April 17, 2014 at 8:44 pm

          Any progress or update on Apple’s review of the app?

          • April 18, 2014 at 12:14 pm

            Notebooks for Mac was approved a few moments ago. Just check the Mac App Store in 1-2 hours and it should be ready for download 🙂

    Have you heard back from Apple. Eagerly looking forward to the release of Notebooks for Mac.

    • April 18, 2014 at 12:16 pm

      Notebooks is on its way to the Mac App Store; it may take a bit until it becomes available on all stores, but this is just a matter of a few hours now.

        It’s here! Bought it!

        • April 18, 2014 at 12:48 pm

          Thanks! – Looks like you’re the first 🙂

        • April 18, 2014 at 3:07 pm

          THANKS …

            We’re in in trouble: we just found out that Notebooks refuses to launch on Mac OS 10.7 and 10.8. This means that an estimated 50% of our potential users would be unable to launch Notebooks if we released it as it is… That risk is too high, and we hope that the other 50% of our customers understand that we need to fix this issue first. We hope it is just a matter of a few days…

    Hello Alfons,

    Can’t wait to buy it, but one thing troubles me. As a power user, I will indeed want to put everything into notebooks. It’s truly the best solution available.

    However, being limited to WEBDAV or Cloud sync will seriously degrade my, and other corporate and government users. We aren’t allowed to use a public cloud or WEBDAV server for sync. The chances of some sensitive information escaping is too much of a risk.

    In their dash to the cloud, many app developers are simply abandoning this large group of users, forcing them to choose among the few (and mostly inferior) alternatives, or to simply do without.

    So the question is will there ever be a WiFi-only sync capability between my Mac and my IOS devices?

    • April 18, 2014 at 4:11 pm

      Hi Charles,

      unfortunately you’ll have to wait another few days until you can buy Notebooks (see my previous comment…)

      Regarding local sync capabilities, I may have good news for you: we are preparing a little Mac app which basically is a WebDAV server, but one that runs on your Mac on your WiFi. So with the sync capabilities already built into Notebooks on iPad and iPhone, you will be able to sync with a local folder on your Mac. – We want to push this a bit further and are trying to integrate this server into Notebooks for Mac.

      Does that sound like a solution for you?

        It is for the same reason I have stayed clear from the likes of OneNote and Evernote.

        Not all users want to wear that cloud banner especially with stringent privacy requirement in some environment.
