What's New
# New Stuff:
  • Static, an advanced and powerful Markdown blogging tool with scriptlet support. Read all about it in the documentation.
  • Syncable, per document, preset text styles: Create a rich text page named "VPDocumentTextStyles" in your document and place a new text style on each line of the page. They will then show up in the Text Styles palette, and sync across computers.
  • Two way sync between VoodooPad for iOS and Desktop VoodooPad. VoodooPad will talk to its iOS sibling over the local Wifi and figure out which pages need to be copied over, and back. Basically, whoever was the last to edit a page wins. The iOS sync sheet has also been updated to show a little icon which will let you know if it's a one way sync (in the case of VP Reader, or a two way sync for VP iOS).
  • You can now select a cover image when exporting to ePub, which will be used in iTunes as a little thumbnail for the book.
  • When importing an image into a Markdown page (via drag+drop with the option key down), VoodooPad will insert the correct image tags to make it show up.
  • New page event: textViewWillDisplay(document, page, textView). You can use this to customize a text view (like adding custom margins) before the text view shows up on screen

    # Changed Stuff:
  • Mac App Store versions of VoodooPad are now sandboxed.
  • Two finger swiping is now the default for going back and forth (and always using the natural direction for this)
  • The location of your last web export is now stored as a document property instead as a per-machine preference.
  • When opening a document without a page cahce, VP will now display a little dialog saying "hey, this might take a minute please hold on". It's rare to ever see this, but it can happen.
  • Updated to MultiMarkdown version 3.6.
  • The Index page is now moved to the very first page on PDF export if you choose "All Pages" instead of a collection.
  • Renamed File ▸ Export ▸ "Export to iPhone or iPad..." to "Sync with iPhone or iPad...", since it's a sync now with VoodooPad for iOS.

    # Fixed Stuff:
  • Fixed a bug where synced pages were sometimes not getting their content updated for the search index.
  • Fixed a bug where putting $ in the web export template would sometimes mess up page macros.
  • Fixed a bug where calling the plugin API setExtraObject:forKey: would sometimes fail to save.
  • The escape key now works to close the services action window.
  • Fixed a bug where pressing return at the start of a line with a checkbox on it would sometimes cause a crash.
  • Fixed a bug where CJK characters that were right next to each other were not linking up correctly for web export.
  • Fixed a bug where the wrong mime type was used on ePub export and embedded images in pages.
  • Fixed a bug where you couldn't double click on VoodooPad documents in the Finder to open them, after running AppleScript against VoodooPad.
  • Fixed a crashing bug with the web server.
  • Fixed a bug in Static where choosing the various "Open Event Script" from the action menu would automatically re-create the Hello World page.
  • Fixed an exception in the linkedPageNamesInAttributedString: plugin API.
  • Fixed a bug where sometimes the web export panel would load a value for the preflight script when it wasn't support to.'
  • Fixed a bug where the Format ▸ Convert Page To ▸ Plain Text menu item had a checkbox next to it if a page was Markdown.
