@satis – I agree, for a relatively new app, it’s extremely polished. And unlike certain apps (koff – Ulysses), its search function also searches through the cards. The lack of an iOS app is a shame, but I suspect there’s probably one on the roadmap.

I particularly like the way the settings are laid out: all sections are on the same page, with headings – just in case you need them – in the left-hand margin (a bit like the app itself), so you can simply scroll down it rather than clicking on lots of different sections.

I hadn’t noticed the font thing – amusing!

Cheers!
Bill

I think you should revisit Ulysses’s search ability. In addition to Command-F ‘find’ there’s also Shift-Command-F ‘search in group’ which offers the most granular search I’ve seen in any app.

I can think of no other apps I own which let me search only in dashed lists for a specific word or phrase, for example.

The only thing that comes close to the search ability in this app is pure GREP expression-search in something like BBEdit.

Good grief! You’re right, that’s certainly evolved. Oh dear – no, no, I don’t wanna look! No – more – subscriptions!

Aha! Novellus is back! And it’s been updated for Apple Silicon – a good sign that it’s not died off or been abandoned!

A nice, low-price Scrivener/Ulysses alternative is available in the Mac App Store again.

Cheers,
Bill

And the Novellus developer has taken the opportunity of tidying up/modernising the UI, too – it looks a good deal better than it did.

Great stuff!
