This release features Tag Icons, which enable multiple icons per thought. The way sizing works in notes is also much more predictable and consistent. Keep reading below for more improvements.

 

Version 9.0.85

March 15, 2015

  • Major Changes and Improvements
    • Tags and Icons
      • Tags can now be assigned icons which appear on the thoughts they are applied to. This can be used to effectively enable multiple icons per thought.
      • Icons and tags are now arranged so that they are much less likely to go beyond the edge of the screen
      • The name of tags with icons are shown only on hover, allowing many more tags to be displayed
  • Duplicate Thought Report
    • This new report shows all thoughts whose name is used more than once
  • Notes
    • Text size in notes is no longer related to the width of the notes editor
    • When the editor is made very wide, margins automatically appear to make the text easier to read
  • Contact Icons
    • Add an email address as an attachment to a thought and the thought’s icon will be automatically assigned if the email address has an icon available from Gravatar
