The primary emphasis in this update, in addition to the usual bug fixes and little improvements, was to enable the iPad version of WriteMapper to also be able to make use of new features available on iPadOS, as has been recently announced by Apple. Here's what's new in this version:
Mouse and Trackpad Support on iPad
Following the public release of iPadOS 13.4, Apple's iPad device now is fully compatible with mice and trackpads. In this update, we've focused on bringing this new feature to the WriteMapper app as well.
We've conducted a thorough and comprehensive rewrite of how our app's code handles user interactions, and it now will work with both touch pointers (your fingers), mice or trackpads — or even all of them at the same time!
- Made the “Full Document Preview” export option more obviously located in the menu bar on desktop.
- Added mention of License Manager on license settings tab in desktop versions, for easier access.
- Updated monospace font for Windows version to the recently-created Cascadia Code font.
- Updated some code framework libraries used in the backend on the desktop version.
- Increased the frequency of periodic autosaving of your work by the app.
- Fixed an issue where block embeds in the content editor were sometimes hard to exit out of.
- Fixed a bug on iPadOS and iOS where search results would be obscured in certain situations.
- Fixed issue on iPad and iPhone where tooltip menus were shown misaligned in some scenarios.
- Fixed a word count bug in the content editor on desktop versions.
