Hello again! Almost two years have passed since the last major release, time flies by. Last summer, I pulled up FSNotes for iOS, and now it's the turn of the macOS version of the program. A lot of work was done between 4 and 5, but for now I will focus on the innovations of the five.
The interface of the program has not changed much, but inside this update at least half a hundred bugs have been fixed. Attribute caching makes switching between notes even smoother, and new features will not give a reason to return to the old version of the program.
My good friend Matt Sephton created a GitHub issue back in 2018, I think you guessed... Yes, I'm talking about the folder tree in the sidebar. As you know, 'Three years is not too long to wait for what is promised', so get it and sign :) https://github.com/glushchenko/fsnotes/issues/188
The root folder is displayed with a simple title, and can be changed in the settings, as before. If it's iCloud Drive, then for the GitHub version, the label is now also localized. If not, then the default name will be Documents.
It seems to me that the system function was added back in macOS Mojave, now the entire color palette is available in FSNotes.
A lot of work has been done to put in order the selected rows of the table and those on which the focus is set.
Tags are also colored with new colors (available in macOS BigSur and higher).
I kept waiting for Apple to fix WKWebView so that it would be possible to humanly print documents. But nothing has changed in macOS Monterey, and I decided to use the old API from WebView.
Now printing user manuals will be more convenient, and images are fully supported.
Tags experienced many transformations, from storing files in metadata, to inline text that has proven itself well. There was not only flexible management.
The name of the directory in which the document being used is located has been added to the program header.
Removed the smart tag Inbox and Notes, by default the program displays all notes. You can hide unnecessary documents from the search and the general list in the directories settings, as before.
Removed visual trash, this is header Tags. Added header for external folders, if any are connected.
And there was also an opportunity to use old queries from the search, for this you can click on the magnifying glass in the search bar or just double-click `cmd - L`.
Previously, you could not override shortcuts for navigating between notes and directories. Now you can in the View menu:
If you select text in the editor and press `cmd - x`, you can cut the entire line at once without selecting the text.
To quickly navigate between smart tags in the sidebar, you can use the shortcuts `ctrl - 1...5`
Improved navigation between sidebar, note list and editor. Controls are available with arrows or as before `return` or `cmd - return`
To forcefully delete notes bypassing the basket, a shortcut is added `ctrl - cmd - delete`
