This latest update is all about getting the desktop version up to speed with the features that will be available in the upcoming release of WriteMapper for iPad.
Today, we're adding three new major features that have been highly requested by our customers: Spellcheck, Pinch-to-Zoom and Recent Documents.
Getting your writing work done quick is the entire purpose of WriteMapper. This version of the app now incorporates spellcheck ability, helping you spot and correct your typing mistakes faster than ever. This feature is enabled by default, but if you'd prefer otherwise, there also exists the option to disable spellcheck from the Preferences window.
In addition to the two existing ways (keyboard shortcuts and from clicking the zoom option in the toolbar) of setting your desired zoom level on the WriteMap view, you can now also use the pinch-zoom gesture on computers and hardware that support it. Nifty!
3. Recent Documents
It's now more convenient than ever to access your most recent WriteMaps. On macOS, you can view and access your recent WriteMaps by right-clicking the WriteMapper icon in the Dock, or from the "Open Recent" item in the menu bar. On Windows, you can similarly view and access your recent WriteMaps by right-clicking the WriteMapper icon in the Taskbar.
Besides the three new features listed above, we've also made these minor fixes and improvements in this release:
- While the content editor is open, you can now also use the Ctrl/Cmd + E keyboard shortcut to exit to the WriteMap view, besides hitting the escape key.
- Applied a fix for the animation seen during the process of creating a new WriteMap not lining up exactly with the new node in the created WriteMap.
- Fixed an issue where opening WriteMap files on the Windows platform from a state where the app hasn’t been instantiated doesn’t work.
- Improved WriteMap file name handling to not use the restricted colon (:) character.
Take it for a spin!
WriteMapper 1.3 is available as a free update for all our past WriteMapper customers.
