Collate is leaving beta and is now available for purchase!
We’re excited to announce that Collate (0.2.3) is available for purchase! This also means that the current beta version (0.2.2) is the last beta version available.
We’d like to take a minute to thank all the beta testers that reached out with ideas, suggestions, and bug fixes. Your feedback was critical to creating a feature-rich and bug-free release. Thank you.
The new version of Collate brings one major new feature: Note Types. In a nutshell, note types are various ways to take notes, which makes Collate a more flexible note taking and editing tool. Joining the Markdown editor that’s been the main text entry tool are two new ways of taking notes:
- Rich text (WYSIWYG) editor.
- Web clipper
Rich Text (WYSIWYG)
A WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) was one of the most requested features. With the addition of the Rich Text note type, users can now choose between keeping individual notes in Markdown or HTML. The note format is staying the same, but the body of the note now contains HTML instead of Markdown text. Which note type you use is completely up to you. This new note type brings the ability to embed base64 encoded images right into your notes as well. Neat.
The second most requested feature, the web clipper, is an editor that saves a web page locally and displays it. It’s quite useful for downloading content for archival purposes – really invaluable for all note taking needs! The bonus is that the entire web page is saved locally to the note’s attachment folder.
In addition to note types, keyboard navigation has been added: navigating around the note list and note pane works with the arrow keys. You can also tab and shift-tab between the list of notebooks and notes. A handy feature to navigate around your data.
A license will grant a single user access to Collate. For home and personal use on an unlimited number of devices and for business use across 5 devices.
