Greetings fellow CRIMPers. I hope everyone had a nice new year celebration and is ready to head into a great 2018.

My number one wish for the coming year is to find a true substitute for Ulysses. There are a lot of excellent markdown editors, but none that combine that kind of pure writing space with tools for organizing and managing all one’s writing in one screen.

What is your CRIMPing wish for 2018?

Steve Z.

Thank you, Steve, for your hopes for 2018. I write this with a very slightly sore head, so in my case one of your hopes has already been fulfilled! May I wish you the very best for 2018, in return?

My Crimping hopes for 2018 are twofold. First, I should be pleased if someone develops and markets a desktop readability analyser for the Mac. There are online analysers, there’s a readability feature in MS Word, someone has just released a Mac Flesch-Kincaid “tester” application, and I expect there are suitable Windows applications. But there’s not - to my knowledge - a specific Mac desktop application.

Second, I hope that in 2018 the developers of DevonThink will be able to release a version with functionality which allows the automatic filing of files in specified groups in specified DT databases. To cut a long story short, this is not really possible at present without, at the very least, building quite a lot of Automator actions or AppleScripts or Hazel rules. But for me - filing away numerous files each week - this would be a time-saving godsend. The developers have indicated that their thinking is pointing in the direction of such functionality. It would be terrific in 2018 to have a released version that successfully embodies it.

Hoping WriteMonkey 3 gets into a usable state.

Also hoping for a decent desktop notetaking app for Windows. Heck, someone doing an updated version of ResophNotes is all I really want.

Oh, and looking forward to Scrivener 3 for Windows, of course.

A very happy and successful New Year to everybody!

I’m looking forward to folding in future versions of Ulysses and possibly also Bear. While I love Outlinely, it hasn’t progressed very much over the last few months. I’m hoping this is indicative of swan syndrome (not a lot on the surface, plenty of frantic paddling underneath), but even I get slightly resentful of paying a subscription for something that doesn’t appear to be evolving… (after a flurry of correspondence earlier in the year, Glam Software have retreated to their usual uncommunicative state. Shame).

Anyway: have a great 2018, everyone!

Bill

I assume you’ve tried CintaNotes?
