Weekly update: 2018 week #8

This is our weekly update for the 8th week of 2018. The features and fixes might arrive at the desktop and mobile app a few days later than the web version.


Improved

  • We have added more uptime monitoring and also made sure we’re notified within minutes when Dynalist is unavailable. We also set up a public status page.

Fixed

  • [Copy/paste] Now when copying and pasting within Dynalist, note is interpreted as OPML. Before, it will be interpreted as HTML, resulting in HTML being converted into Markdown.

Mobile (v1.2.2)

  • [Preferences] Fixed preferences not saving when offline.
  • [UI/minor] Fixed can’t tap on notes to expand them when hiding notes or only showing first line.
  • [Android] Fixed status bar issue with some Android devices.
  • [iOS] Fixed can’t exit date picker screen.

Weekly update: 2018 week #7

Improved

  • [Mobile/Performance] In iOS app v1.2.0, rendering is much faster and consumes less memory. The app should now match Safari’s rendering performance.

Fixed

  • [Mobile/inbox] In iOS app v1.2.0, sharing a webpage from Chrome no longer crashes the app.

Weekly update: 2018 week #6

This is our weekly update for the 6th week of 2018. The features and fixes might arrive at the desktop and mobile app a few days later than the web version.


Feature

  • [Pro] You can now use the item finder to jump to any item by searching for it! For more information, see the announcement post.

Improved

  • [Settings] Updated setting dialog to have consistent style with the account setting page. Each option now also has a little explanation if it’s not straightforward.
  • [Search] Added new search operators. You now search for “has:color“, “is:heading“, and “heading:” followed by 0~3.

Fixed

  • [Formatting] Fixed undo can only undo making one item bold, after you make multiple items bold in bulk.
  • [Formatted] Fixed issue with individual item formatting toggling. For example, let’s say item A is bold and item B is not bold. Before, if you press Ctrl+B while selecting both A and B, A will no longer be bold and B will become bold. Now, A and B will both be bold after you do Ctrl+B.
  • [Mobile UI] Fixed navigation header of the date picker is cropped out on tablets.
