A new update of Write! to v1.32.0 has arrived. In this update we’ve added the new feature to outline and navigate a document, and fixed some minor bugs.
Document Outline & Navigation
Write! now recognizes headers of all levels in your documents and uses them to create an outline that you could use to jump to different parts of your document without needing to scroll. It is a convenient time saver for browsing through lengthy documents.
The outline appears in the Cloud panel and can be viewed for documents that are open in the current session (the documents that are in tabs). In order to show/hide the outline, click the arrow next to a document’s icon.
As mentioned above, you need to have headers in your document so that Write! could create an outline. Here are the ways to create headers of different levels in Write!:
- Go to the Contextual menu > Text Formatting Tab (Ctrl+Space or right click) and select the level of the header you need;
- Use Ctrl+1, Ctrl+2 etc to create a header of the first, second etc level (on macOS Command+1, Command+2 etc);
- By means of Markdown, Wiki, or Textile syntax. An example of creating a header of the first level with Textile is as follows: “h1._space_Some header” and the phrase “Some header” will be automatically rendered to the header of the first level. For more info on how to use Markdown,
Wiki and Textile go to Help (F1).
Once you have at least one header, Write! will automatically recognize it to make an outline. Clicking a header will move you to exactly that part of the document.
Alternatively, you can go to your Account (you need to be logged in), navigate to the Download tab, and get the latest version for your OS there.
As always, we eagerly await your feedback on our UserVoice page.
