Write! 1.53.0: Local Documents Panel and Copy As HTML Improvements

As per numerous requests, in this release we have improved the Copy as HTML feature, made the overall experience of working with Local Documents Panel more enjoyable and delivered other minor features and bug fixes.

Here’s what’s new in Write! 1.53.0:

  • Added an ability to remember the folder path for the draft when creating a document through the Local Documents Panel. For example, when creating a new document using a context menu in a Local Panel, this new document won’t be shown in the folder immediately, you can see it on the side panel after pressing Save(Ctrl+S or ⌘+S on Mac);
  • Added an ability to delete a local file through side panel or tab context menu. When deleting the local file, Write! moves it to the Recycle Bin together with its draft. Usually, the draft contains the part of the document that wasn’t saved by you. This is needed in case the document was removed accidentally without saving the last changes and need to be restored. In case you want to restore the documents from the recycle bin, the best way to do it, select files that you want to restore and drag-and-drop to a folder of your choice;
  • Added an ability to rename a local file through side panel (F2) or tab context menu (Ctrl+R or ⌘+R on Mac). To do so, right-click on the tab with the document > Rename;
  • Added an option to copy text as clean HTML without CSS and classes. It might be helpful for those of you who are avid users of the WordPress and other blog platforms, and want your text to be perfectly inserted to your blog;
  • Updated German dictionary;
  • Fixed the bug with a default saving format;
  • Other minor improvements and bug fixes.

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.

  • Hi, the HTML code isn’t completly clean…

    How you can see, the HTML code show a lot of code that isn’t good for an import in WordPress or other online blog editors.

    Test h1Test 12345

    That isn’t good for an online editor.

    If you set that code in a blog post, that can collide with the blog HTML.

    Isn’t good for an online editor

    Test 12345
    A clean HTML code mean that there is only formatting without style or other parameters… the code should be like this: ” Test 12345 ”

    Then… A copy as “clean HTML” of the text up above should be simply like that:

    Test h1
    Test 12345

    • Hi Gabriele,
