Themes are fun – and actually, much more practical than one might think. For example, the lightly modified theme I’m using adds highlighting, strikethrough and underlining.

NotePlan itself has recently added horizontal lines – okay, not a huge thing, but invaluable if one is managing an enormous project.

And Eduard is now working on a complete scripting API as well, as you suggested, as a theme editor that will make modifying one’s theme much easier than before.

NotePlan already has a broad range of add-on scripts, although they’re all rather techie, as well as a couple of really useful PopClip extensions.

NotePlan tweeted out a link for a ‘Learn NotePlan By Email’ series, writing, “This is in “beta”, so feel free to send copywriting tips and reply if something sounds confusing!”

I have moved back to NotePlan after seeing the newest updates, especially folding text. I had been using NotePlan until mid-2020 when I needed some additional capabilities and started with Notion. But over time I mainly used Notion for a daily journal along with the spreadsheet capabilities.

The folding text is what finally sold me. I would like to see it folding on indented bullets and tasks, but I believe that is in the works.

Eduard does a great job listening to users and implementing ideas in a user-friendly fashion. The new design looks great, and has worked well so far.

NotePlan now has a small, vibrant Discord community.


Eduard is participating fairly regularly. Recently he discussed how with “about 1.6k project notes and 1.9k calendar notes” startup takes a few seconds for him to show the sidebar, but “I’m making some improvements for the command bar search for the next release to make it faster.”

NotePlan 3 is the biggest “outliner” disappointment of the year for me. Maybe there are some workarounds, I just lost my motivation after 15 minutes (and uninstalled the app - tested on my Mac) due to lack of perceived value.

The letdown is on 3 levels -
1. lack of polish on the basics, e.g. * prefix to designate task is overridden by “task” style which removes the asterisk and reverts to non-task; *

sequence is treated as characters at the edit level - requiring cursor positioning and 2 delete or backspace keystrokes to remove, ..
2. concern about bugs: I assinged a task to today. It didn’t show up in All Tasks or Coming up Soon. Not seeing tasks with a deadline means I would not be able to trust the tool? Recent (April) reports from other users about sync issues (not using Dropbox) - not advertised as fixed in release notes. OK - that means potential data loss and missing deadlines - a deadly combo.
3. lack of conceptual cohesion - tasks and calendar are completely separate, yet conceptually the app seems to suggest that the notion of timeboxing is the reason to show the calendar in a separate pane and allow for manual creation of appointments that are not linked to the tasks ...

Moving on, life is to short ...
