v4.2 released

It's been over a week since v4 was released. A loooong week! Markdown is like Marmite - some people love it, others hate it.

Anyhow, I've just released v4.2 which fixes a bunch of early teething problems as follows:

  • Double click/tap the notes window to enter Edit mode.
  • ⌥⌘T to toggle between Edit and View notes.
  • ⌘B and ⌘I will now apply Bold/Italic at the topic level. This changes the font for the topic rather than add Markdown punctuation so it won't be included in any Markdown export.
  • PPTX export no longer includes the Markdown formatting
  • Word count is now updated properly
  • Code blocks now default to using ``` rather than 4 spaces
  • Triple space (iOS) now strips off any period character.
  • The font used for headers has been reduced in size.

There is also a new Highlight (text formatting) option as below:

I guess this is another advantage of the new Markdown approach that I haven't really communicated. Additional textual formatting can be added in future and it will remain entirely backwards compatible.

Any other questions, suggestions of issues just drop me a line.
