16.15 Version 13.4.0

Date: 16 Nov 2023 - Thursday

Added Show in Finder for Notes

At the top of the contextual menu for Notes on the List tab, you will now find an option to Show in Finder. Selecting this option will reveal the file in the macOS Finder.

Added Optional Separator for Linked Tags

When using the Linked Tags - G variable modifier, an optional third parameter may now be specified, in order to use a separator between tags of something other than a comma.

Added Script Include Option

One Script File may now include another, by specifying the name of a second file as a Script Module parameter.

Added Script Lognoise Setting

The Script Module Parameter of lognoise can be used to suppress some common error messages.

This version makes a couple of changes to the display of Link fields.

First, link fields are new styled with the ext-link class, which is an existing class defined on the HTML Class Values page. This will generally make the styling of links here consistent with the appearance of links within the Body of the note.

Second, the contents of the display string shown for a link field can now be modified using a special set of values to be placed in the the Collection Template File.

See the following for an example.

Ref Link: <link: x|s|s|x|x > 

Notice there are five separate single-character values separated by pipe characters.

Each position can have one of the following values:

And the five positions represent the following five components of a URL:

A couple of things to note:

And now, to explain what we mean by simplifying the presentation of a component.

First, this only applies to the Host and the Path. There are no simplification algorithms for the other three parts, so they will be displayed as-is, unless they are excluded.

For the Host, the following rules will be applied:

For the Path, the following rules will be applied:

And then, if the host and/or the path were simplified, then the two will be separated by a colon and a space, rather than a slash.

So, for example, given the formatting string above, this URL:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_note-taking_software

…would be displayed like this:

Wikipedia: Comparison of note-taking software

Depending on what you are using a Collection for, and what sort of links you are recording, this sort of formatting may or may not be useful to you.

In some cases, though, it can make the text of the link much easier to read for humans trying to parse all the pieces.
