Quite an interesting update to a steadily evolving app that’s turned into a very good one: multi-platform UpNote (Mac, Windows, Linux, iOS and Android). Thomas has added “collapsible sections”, which is a rather neat concept taken from such perennial (but now, alas, more or less moribund) classics as Quiver.

The collapsible section essentially consists of a header plus a body text section that can be folded into the header. It doesn’t look like you can turn an existing paragraph into a collapsible section, and the folding is only single-level (i.e. below a specified header; you can’t have multiple layers). But it’s a very useful enhancement if you’re writing long notes or texts. I think it’s a great addition.

Thomas is always very responsive to requests, in any case, so those wanting even more support for single-pane outlining are welcome to hassle him ;-)

Oops, sorry, I lied: actually, you can turn any paragraph into a collapsible section, or transform it back into a “normal” text section. All text formatting continues to work in collapsible sections. You can also use different sizes of header in collapsible sections. But you can’t embed a collapsible section in another one – any attempt to do so simply toggles the existing section on or off.

It’s worth noting that a collapsible section can contain any/all kinds of object that you can already embed in a note (links, images, tables, dividing lines, etc.). They’re extremely flexible. They also show up as normal in the sidebar “Table of contents”, duly hierarchised by header type.

I haven’t had the opportunity to test collapsible sections yet but I am finding a lot of nice, useful features in the app. I *really* find useful the built-in right-click options Copy As Markdown and Paste From Markdown, as well as Insert Date (with Time)—features I’ve otherwise had to implement myself with 3rd party Popclip extensions.

If UpNote would ever make a real macOS menubar note feature which let you add and save notes without the app being open, I’d seriously consider it over my current daily drivers.
