### 16.16 Version 10.0.0

Date: 29 Jul 2022

##### New Shortcut Action to Add Note

Added to the list of Notenik Custom Actions for Shortcuts with a new action to Add Note From Text. This can be used as part of a macOS Shortcut to collect one or more field values from the user, and then add a Note with those values to the last referenced Collection. Such a shortcut can be invoked while using an app other than Notenik, so as to quickly capture a new Note without interrupting other work the user might be engaged in.

##### New Shortcut Action to Run Script

Added to the list of Notenik Custom Actions for Shortcuts with a new action to Run Script. This can be used as part of a macOS Shortcut to run a specified Script File.

##### New Export Option to Run Script

Scripts can now be placed inside an export folder, which will then make them available as a format when performing an Export, allowing the user to specify an output folder to receive the files generated by the script. See Export Using Script for details.

##### Improved Scripting Documentation

Enhanced the Knowledge Base information about Script Files, including a new chapter providing a Script File Example.

##### Query Builder Output Viewed Internally

When the Query Builder was introduced in Version 9.9.0 the output report was directed to a page that would open in the user’s preferred Web browser. This change now routes the output to an internal Notenik window.

##### Removed Case Significance for Partial String Comparisons

When using the Filter Module Parameters within Script Files, the string comparisons to see if a field contains, starts with, or ends with another string (or the negation of any of these) will now ignore case (upper- or lower-case). For example a title of ‘Record and Play Scripts’ would be judged to contain the literal ‘script’, ignoring the fact that ‘Scripts’ has an initial capital letter. This modified logic will also apply to filters generated by the Query Builder.

##### Removed Option to Grant Access w/o Confirmation

Turns out (and I now remember I had discovered this once before) that granting access doesn’t work without the confirmation dialog! So I’ve removed this option from the Collection Settings, and updated the section on Disk Access Permissions.

Next: Version 9.9.0
