I do plan to have a document search.  When that is added it will be integrated with the list search so that when you select a searched for document the search terms in that document are highlighted.

Thanks for the advice about the screenshot. I’ll update it when the app changes more.

Speaking of which, always keep any outlines you create in Zavala exported as OPML files.  The next version of Zavala will break the database format and you’ll lose anything you’ve put into it.  I’m going to be converting the application to use tags for organizing instead of folders.  The tag model will be similar to the one used in Vesper if you are familiar with that note taking application.

Oops! Thanks for the warning. I’ve only got test data in there at the moment, but it’s a nice outliner.

I’ve put out another release of Zavala. This is a pretty big release. It includes iCloud syncing and sharing. That means that if someone else has Zavala you can share and collaborate on Outlines in realtime with them.

iCloud syncing wouldn’t be very much fun if Zavala was only on Macs, so this release also supports iOS. You can download Zavala for Mac and/or get the iOS version here: https://github.com/vincode-io/Zavala You’ll find the info at the end of the User Contributions section.

I’m pretty sure that this is the last time that I will break backwards compatibility. You should still always back anything you want to keep to an OPML file. But, from here on out, I am going to make things smoother for testers of the app. I use it daily and hope that others start to do so too.

Good news, Maurice – I was going to report a fairly significant bug in version 13.0 (lost my data repository, couldn’t work out how to enter text since Zavala started insisting that you have to go through the “tag” field first), but the new version works well, and I’ve worked out the tag thing. In some respects, it’s actually good to be “forced” to go through the tag field before you start writing.

Tiny bug, or perhaps feature: when you click the up arrow, it moves the cursor up to the next item rather than to the next line. Ditto down arrow.

Excellent that it now supports iCloud, and I’m delighted to hear about the iOS app – I shall install forthwith!

Keep up the good work,
Bill

Nice to see that Zavala supports nested tags – but folding of same would be even nicer! So rather than:

test
test/nested

you’d see:

test>

and then, after clicking on “test”:

test
test/nested
etc.

Same as Bear, NotePlan or Spaces.
