Collate 0.3.0 is now available for download!
This version brings a couple of new features, a change to the Collate note format, bug fixes, and a minor version number bump (due to auto updates).
Change Log – 0.3.0
- Tag suggestions – Tag suggestions pop up when typing, allowing you to choose an existing tag.
- Compact list view for notes – For those that don’t like the card view, we now have compact list view without a note blurb. Enable in Settings.
- Auto updates – For future versions on Mac and Windows, a notice will be shown to download and install new updates. It’s optional but will show every time the app starts.
- Added option to enable preview for Markdown editor by default (potentially buggy, let me know if you encounter issues)
- Added default notebook option – Right click on a notebook and choose Set as default. When a new note is created it will go in this folder if a notebook isn’t already selected.
- Added logging – The app will now log errors. You can see the error log by opening the Help pane and selecting View Logs. A file browser will open up and the log is called log.log
- Rich text editor now has the option to format text in different styles: Serif, Sans-Serif, Monospace.
- Added support for 32 bit Windows (beta) – The .exe installer should now work on both systems. This is untested, as I don’t have a 32 bit Windows system to test on. Please let me know if it works or not!
- Cleaned up backend CSS a bit (necessary for future theming)
- Any YAML in a note’s front matter not used by Collate will be passed back into the note on save. This means that you can use custom metadata tags.
- Moved Outline note data from JSON in the body to YAML in the front matter.
- Added trim to license key box – Strips any spaces added to the front or back of a license key.
- Modified image button on both the Markdown and Rich Text editor. When clicked it will open a file dialog. When an image is selected, it will attach it to the note then embed the image in the body of the editor.
- Updated Collate Note Format. Removed the note and notebook folder naming restrictions. Note and Notebook titles now map 1 to 1 to the directory name. This means that Note and Notebook titles can only use characters that are supported by the operating system (Windows has a couple of characters that are reserved). See the updated note format here and the updated example collection here.
- Consolidated keyboard shortcuts into a single coherent system. This means that in the next version I can add a way to customize keyboard shortcuts.
- Fixed syntax highlighting not working in export window.
- Fixed trial ended message on first launch.
- Fixed embed link not working for images.
- Fixed issue where notes were jumping around on save.
- Fixed issue with Evernote import.
- Fixed issue with notebook count not changing when moved.
- Added trim to notebook name – Disallow spaces at the beginning and end of a title
- Changed the default note name to remove reserved characters to comply with Windows folder naming conventions.
