  • Notes

    • If you purchased NoteBook from the Mac App Store, the very latest NoteBook update may not be available to you because Apple has not approved it.

    NoteBook 4.0.6 (754) 10/8/2014

    • Worked around a bug in Mavericks 10.9.5 and Yosemite involving the OS X XML parser, which caused certain large Notebooks to crash on open. To avoid this problem you must use NoteBook 4.0.6 to rebuild the Multidex of any Notebook that is crashing, by holding down the Cmd and Option keys while opening the Notebook.
    • Worked around a bug in Yosemite that caused text to disappear while editing.
    • Guarded against a crasher.
    • Fixed a bug where the numbered priority image style images would not appear on the Notebook page.
    • Fixed a bug where the current writing direction was not preserved when creating a new outline item.
    • Fixed a bug with slow typing while editing a page with a zoom factor other than 100%.

    NoteBook 4.0.5 (749) 9/3/2014

    • Clicking a page in the Contents Card, where that page exists in a separate window, now brings that separate window to the foreground.
    • Fixed a timing problem between revealing sticky notes when first opening a Notebook and restoring its miniaturization state.
    • Fixed a problem with restoring a Notebook window’s size when it was set not to display the paper holes.
    • Fixed a problem with the right margin in the engineering paper style when you have paper holes hidden.
    • Fixed a problem with the Mail clipping sticker when running OS X in Japanese.
    • Fixed a bug where after Save As-ing a read-only Notebook, NoteBook still thought the new Notebook was not writable even though the Save As operation creates a writable Notebook.
    • Fixed a bug where sticky notes attached to outline items no longer scrolled with their items when you opened their page in a separate window.
    • Fixed a bug with the Outline -> Table submenu in the French, German, and Japanese localizations.
    • Fixed a bug where NoteBook did not properly recognize URLs with tildes.
    • Fixed a bug where it wasn’t possible to change a Sticker’s “favorite” status using the Stickers toolbar item.
    • Fixed a bug where a page break caused outline items to print beginning on the next page but the item attributes (stickers, etc.) appeared on the next page and on the current page (where they would have appeared without the page break).
    • NoteBook now ignores zero-size shapes when exporting as a website.
    • Pressing Shift-Return on a Divider page now adds the new page above the selected page.
    • Fixed a problem with the View -> Stickies and Flags command.
    • Fixed a bug with saving Multidex information for strings composed of special Unicode characters.
    • Fixed a bug where dragging a Keyword into an outline item while editing that item’s text froze the Notebook window.
    • Fixed a crasher that could happen while removing discarded attachments.
    • Fixed a bug where shapes could be clipped when exporting a Notebook as a website.
    • Fixed a bug where attachment shapes could have an incorrect rotation applied when printing or exporting as a website.
    • Fixed a problem where while editing a sticky flag, if you scrolled the page so that its outline item scrolled out of view, the flag would disappear but its text would still remain visible.
    • Fixed a bug where the SuperFind panel would not remember new search strings.
    • Fixed a bug where if you had the Return key set to end editing and add a new item, if you added several new items and then clicked in the last and used the up arrow to move the insertion point to a previous item, the empty items would disappear from the page.
    • Find has been disabled on Multidex pages - you cannot display the Find Bar on Multidex pages, and Find Next and Find Previous will skip over those pages. The Find operation’s brute-force method of searching, and its method of highlighting matches, are not compatible with the way the Multidex pages operate. Please use Super Find to see where a word occurs across an entire Notebook.
    • Updated NoteBook’s application signing to work with the new version 2 Gatekeeper.

    NoteBook 4.0.4 (747) 7/9/2014

    • Fixed a bug that caused a Notebook that was saved with its cover page visible to be uncovered when reopened.
    • Fixed a bug that caused typing slowness.
    • Fixed a problem with text layout when multiple fonts existed in an outline item.

    • Fixed a bug where the SuperFind inspector date field would reset when the inspector lost focus.

    • Fixed a long-standing bug where the Prioritize sort sorted items by due date descending, which placed items due far in the future ahead of items due soon.

    • Added an option in the Outline pane of NoteBook preferences to disable NoteBook 4’s new auto-numbering feature.

    • Fixed a bug where the OS X list feature did not work when typing in an outline item in Paragraph mode.
    • Fixed a problem with action item syncing to iCal on Lion.

    If you are experiencing issues or crashers not addressed in the latest update, please let us know using our support form.

    NoteBook 4.0.4 7/9/2014

    Note: because of changes Apple made to iOS 7, it is not currently possible to add images from your image library directly (i.e. by way of the Add button in the pencil bar) to a NoteBook page. As a workaround, you can launch the Photos app, copy the desired image, and then paste it into NoteBook. We plan to work around this problem in a future update to NoteBook for iPad.

    • Fixed a crasher under iOS 8 beta.
    • Fixed a crasher when using sliders to change values in inspector panes.

    NoteBook 4 5/6/2014

    • Added the ability to read the new NoteBook file format.
    • Fixed a problem with syncing large Notebooks via Dropbox that would previously cause the syncing to fail.

    NoteBook 3.1.11 12/20/2013

    • Fixed a bug with syncing large Notebooks from Dropbox for the first time. Because of how Dropbox rate limits data and files pulled from its service, you will often see sync errors the first time you sync a large Notebook from Dropbox, and some of the Notebook's images and data files might be missing. Previously if you performed a resync NoteBook would not recognize that those files still needed to be downloaded and would report that the sync succeeded. But when you opened the Notebook, images would be missing and pages would report that their data was missing. Now, NoteBook correctly detects that page and other files are missing and redownloads them. Again, because of Dropbox rate limiting you may see a sync error after your second sync - just keep tapping the sync button until NoteBook reports that the sync succeeded. You will eventually notice that the sync bar makes more and more progress with each sync. Once the sync succeeds, the Notebook will be fully downloaded.
    • Fixed a bug in how NoteBook’s RTF writer saved out tab characters.

    NoteBook 3.1.10 8/23/2013

    • Fixed a crasher when running NoteBook on iOS 7.

    NoteBook 3.1.9 8/9/2013

    • Fixed problems with running NoteBook on iOS 7. Please note: iOS 7-related UI updates will appear in a future version.
    • Fixed a bug that disabled horizontal page scrolling at 100% magnification.
    • Changed how NoteBook renders PDFs. NoteBook should now properly observe parameters like the crop box, etc.
    • Fixed a rare Dropbox crasher.
