Isn’t the GTK used by NoteCase rather outdated too? It cannot do tables, struggles with encoding, web clips are not faithful, no numbered lists, etc. Even updating to GTK3 will not resolve most of these limitations (I could be wrong about this claim). Don’t misunderstand. I like NoteCase a lot and find it very useful. I imagine it is extremely appealing to those using multiple platforms, but I am just on Windows.
