Still no linking to notes? That’s a shame. Still, I shall evaluate with interest.

Ulysses is almost perfect for writing in a lightly formatted way, but one basket for all the eggs is still limiting.

The new keyword manager is nice, but there’s only one set of keywords across everything in your library.

If Ulysses had a way to use individual libraries, I’d be very happy.

The new keyword management interface is sorely disappointing. It is a pop-up window rather than integrated into the main interface, and few other changes have been made to make it easier to manage keywords. In the end I just don’t use them, relying on folders instead.

Compared with Scrivener (say), Ulysses has no real outlining tools. You can put a comment at the top of each of a series of sheets, but that’s all. This handicaps it for writing anything much longer than a report, a blog or an essay.

So the sooner the application can import OPML sheet by sheet, from (say) OmniOutliner without going via Scrivener, the better as far as I’m concerned. I’d been hoping that the latest version might include this feature.

Otherwise, for me it remains a convenient tool for writing shorter long-form without distraction.
