Trunk Notes 4

Trunk Notes 4 was released in January. This updated TN to iOS 7 and included a number of fixes for Dropbox.

The second point release of version 4 has just been submitted to Apple. After a period of months between releases the aim is now to do frequent small updates to respond more quickly to bugs and requests for new features.

Although 4.0.2 is primarily a bug fix release, concentrating mainly on erratic cursor movement, there is a new feature for those of you who use a Bluetooth keyboard. With iOS 7 Apple finally enabled developers to add easy support for keyboard shortcuts when editing text. Trunk Notes takes advantage of this and adds the following keyboard shortcuts:

  • ⌘ + B – Bold
  • ⌘ + I – Italics
  • ⌘ + L – Either inserts [[]] for a wiki link, or converts a http:// link into an external link e.g.
  • ⌘ + T – Strikethrough
  • ⌘ + 1 – Cycles through 1st, 2nd and 3rd level headings for the current link
  • ⌘ + 2 – Starts a list
  • ⌘ + 3 – Starts a numbered list (notice that these three shortcuts correspond in order to the ordering on the toolbar)
  • ⌘ + D – Inserts a timestamp
  • ⌘ + S – Saves the current note

In the coming weeks support for TextExpander snippets will be reintroduced. If you have any small nice to haves you’d like to see in TN email!
