August 24, 2016

Version 1.4, build 3453

New
Support for strike-through (not unlike this) in experiment and protocol text.
New
Support for underline.
New
Support for font colors.
New
Support for highlight, with different colors!.
New
Autodetection of links to make them clickable. It works with web browser links, like http://findingsapp.com, but also any type of links, such as Papers links, file links (more on this below), etc.
New
Insertion of file links as an alternative to file attachments. You can insert a file link using the 'Format' menu or the attachment toolbar button. Instead of copying the file as part of the experiment or protocol, the file is simply linked and left at its original location, similar to what you would have with a file alias in Finder. This is particularly useful for files on remote network drives, or external storage volumes. A file link is simply a "path URL" like file:///Volumes/Sequences/20160722/results1 (you can edit it manually too). Links can be to folders or actual files. Clicking on the link will open the file (or folder). Beware: the link will be broken if the path cannot be reached, for instance if the disk was ejected, or if the file was renamed or moved.
New
Copy-paste formatted content within a document or between two documents, including attachments, tables, notes, etc (finally!).
New
Redesigned table, with many improvements, and new flexible cell selection: entire rows, columns, or any rectangular selection.
New
Smart, automatic column width based on content in redesigned table interface.
New
Custom table column width using mouse drag.
New
Copy-paste tables and table selections to and from Excel and Numbers.

New
Emphasizing relevant fields and subfields in the popup menus used in the protocol browser and protocol editor.
New
Fields and subfields for medicine, veterinary medicine, earth science and training & coaching.
New
Create experiment directly from a selected protocol. This makes it much easier to start an experiment from a protocol, without having to switch to the protocol view in the experiment editor.
New
Create protocol from experiment. As an alternative, a protocol can be populated from a fragment of an experiment using copy and paste.
New
Share button in the toolbar, which invokes the 'Share & Export' sheet.
New
Pressing enter twice exits a list or a code block.
New
Ability to insert carriage returns in table cells, by using the alt-return key combination.
New
Support “Capture Selection from the screen” in contextual menu in document editor.
Improved
Calendar view scrolls to the currently edited day when switching from the text editor view.
Improved
Immediately showing the open panel when choosing to insert an attachment in an experiment. For protocols, the old behavior of inserting an attachment placeholder (clickable box) remains, so that one can create attachment placeholders that will be also shown when a protocol is used in an experiment, in line with the thinking that protocols act as template blocks for experiments.
Improved
Write 'Day X of Y' instead of just 'Day X' in step headers of experiments.
Improved
Faster loading of large documents.
Improved
Much improved performance when typing text in large documents.
Improved

Fixed
Correctly saving the changes done in experiments or protocols in the last 5 seconds before quitting the app.
Fixed
Correctly scrolling to current insertion point after various operations.
Fixed
Correctly scrolling to last insertion point after reloading a document.

Fixed
Using https for the Sparkle-based updater, to prevent potential man-in-the-middle attack allowed by vulnerability in the Sparkle framework.

Crash
Crash when using the 'Cancel' button in the date change confirmation dialog.
Dec 8, 2015

Version 1.3.1, build 3058

Improved
Direct import of zip files containing files in one of the supported formats (zip files were handled before, but only as part of a dragged folder).
Improved
Better handling of some of the zip files created by Finder (which encodes folders using rather primitive conventions).
Improved
Changing a date in a header now triggers a dialog to offer clear options to resolve potential date chronology issues or to optionally apply the same day offset to multiple dates in the document.

Notify the user of date chronology conflict when inserting a new date header, with various options to resolve the conflict.
Improved
Deletion of day headers is now easier using a dedicated button in the editor gutter.

Improved
Licensing information in the About window, and a subtle nod to our beloved customers in the acknowledgments.
Improved
Navigation between the fields of a day header using the arrows.
Improved
The app is now 1 megabyte smaller. At our scale, this means billions of hours saved thanks to faster downloads (or a fraction thereof; you're the scientist, do the maths).
Improved
Brighter color when reaching the end of the Pro trial period.
Fixed
Insertion of attachment box at a seemingly random position instead of the expected insertion point.

Fixed
Annoying sync-triggered resurrection of previously deleted built-in protocols.
Fixed
Opening the file twice when double-clicking an attachment icon or file name.

New
Export of multiple experiments or protocols, including whole projects and whole library, with an option to filter by date (filtering by date only for Pro users).
New
Import of Findings archives, which support merging of different versions of the same experiment or protocol; merging works the same as sync, but can be done by sharing documents back and forth via any method like email, AirDrop, Dropbox, etc.
New
Redesigned import workflow, allowing import of multiple files of different types, including files in zip archives; import can be triggered by the ‘Import...’ menu item (cmd-O), or by dragging files and folders onto the app main window or the Dock icon. Supported formats: Word, rtf or markdown for protocols; Findings archives for experiments and protocols.
New
Full-text search of experiments or protocols, not just based on title, but also aim/summary, author, as well as the entire content of the documents. Search correctly handles composed characters (e.g. accentuated letters), punctuation and greek letters (so one can e.g. search ‘beta’ and find content that includes ‘β’).
New
Search within an opened experiment or protocol. Matches are highlighted in the document and can be navigated using the ‘Find Next’ and ‘Find Previous’ menu items (cmd-G and shift-cmd-G), or using the return key (or shift-return).
New
Vignettes in experiment cards. You can pick a vignette by opening an experiment and clicking on the vignette area in the header. The vignette will then show in the experiment card.
New
Project colors visible in experiment cards. For now, project colors are assigned randomly (but reproducibly). Experiment tabs now have a project color badge instead of the flask icon. Let us know if you like the new look!
New
30-day trial of the Pro version for non-registered users. After 30 days, the app reverses to the free Basic version, which offers up to 20 experiments, as well as all the other features (except filtering by date for export).

Improved
Sharing via Mail.app, Messages or AirDrop, for experiments or protocols in Findings or PDF format; this is also done via the new export sheet.
