Notenik 8.0.0 - Including Several Neat Enhancements

Posted on 18 Jan, 2022

The big news in this release is the ability to use an include command within the Body of a Note, to include a second Note or separate file into the Display of the first Note. If you’re including a second Note, then you have the option to specify a style of inclusion: just the Body of the second Note, or the entire Note, or a formatted quotation. (And, of course, if you need to, you can nest your includes.)

I implemented a Custom URL scheme for Notenik some time ago, and provided a handy way to copy a URL to open a specific Note, but neglected to provide anything similar to generate a URL to open the Collection itself, without specifying a particular Note. This oversight has now been corrected with a new command beneath the Collection menu: Copy Notenik URL for Collection.

If you’re using Streamlined Reading, it can often be handy to switch back and forth between that mode and the normal, unstreamlined, display, showing all fields with non-blank values. There’s now a new command and keyboard shortcut to allow you to toggle the Streamlined mode on and off, avoiding repeated trips to the Collection Preferences. Again, look beneath the Collection menu to find this new time-saver.

And, for those of you who use Merge Templates, there are a couple of minor new enhancements: the ability to format a person’s name in a first name first fashion, and a very rudimentary ability to convert HTML to Markdown.

And that does it for the latest release! As always, if you have something on your Notenik wish list that is still not there, feel free to drop me a line and let me know how you think my little app can be further improved. I’m always happy to entertain suggestions from users.
