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.

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.
  • [Mobile UI] Fixed share to inbox dialog being blocked by settings.
  • [UI/minor] Fixed icon misalignment issue for current root items.

Jump to any item: item finder

With Dynalist’s file finder, you can already jump to documents and bookmarks pretty painlessly.

Wanna see something cooler? Here’s our latest Pro feature: now you can jump to any item!

It’s exactly like how the file finder works. You search for the item, navigate the results if necessary, and press Enter. Voil√†! You’re there.

The shortcut to invoke item finder is Ctrl/Cmd+Shift+O, which you can customize.

Note: This is a Dynalist Pro feature.

P.S. Since there are way more items than documents and bookmarks, you might run into some funky search results. If that happens, please let us know on the forum so we can tweak the search algorithm. Thanks in advance!
