P.S. Notes has been updated

P.S. Notes isn’t the only thing that has been updated, either! DayJournal, DayTasks, and P.S. Notes have all been updated. Here are the notes about what’s new.

DayTasks, DayJournal, and P.S. Notes have been updated to use the HeaderBar so they look better and sleeker on your desktop. DayJournal has also been improved to import journal entries made on Blip Journal for iPhone.

Updates To P.S. Notes.

.txt or .md

P.S. Notes now has an option to work with .md files as opposed to .txt files. You can work with one or the other at any given time.

Write Mode

There’s also a new Write Mode you can toggle from the settings menu or by hitting Ctrl-w. In Write Mode, the notes list will hide and the text will perfectly align itself so you can focus on writing. Take a look:

The width of your text is perfectly preserved when switching in and out of Write Mode. Try making the notes list wider or the window larger before going into Write Mode to find the best setup for you. P.S. Notes remembers how you like it the next time you open it. Try it out now by installing from the PPA!

Check Your Word Count in P.S. Notes.

An update to P.S. Notes is available that adds a word count feature. In honor of NaNoWriMo, I added this feature for anyone using P.S. Notes for any kind of writing that lends itself to having a word count be handy. The word count will show up automatically after you get the update, and you can turn it off by unchecking the Word Count option in the extra options buried in the far right side of the toolbar.

Speaking of “in honor of NaNoWriMo,” take a look at this short bit of code I wrote to randomly print 50,000 words. (Seeing how that doesn’t quite end up as a real story, a next programming challenge for NaNoWriMo could be: take in some text and print that text, but with the words “so very, very” added in front of every adjective to jack up your word count!)
