Getting straight to what's in this update, besides the usual bug fixes and improvements, we're also introducing a brand new feature in this release:
Absorb Child Nodes
WriteMapper has had the ability to turn lines of words within a node's contents into children nodes since the app was launched. In this version, we're adding a new feature which allows you to do the reverse — turn nodes into contents.
This helps with generating ideas for writing out the contents of a node's topic, by creating and ordering sub-points in the mind map interface before pulling them all into the parent node. From there, it's a matter of turning those points into complete sentences, and that's that node now taken care of!
You can check it out on your own copy of WriteMapper by right-clicking/long-pressing any node that has child nodes, and selecting the "Absorb Children" option. You can also select the node, and use the Cmd+Shift+A keyboard shortcut on macOS and iPad, or Ctrl+Shift+A on Windows.
Improvements & Bug Fixes
- Updated some code package libraries in anticipation of the upcoming iPadOS public release.
- Fixed issue with undo/redo keyboard shortcuts not working consistently in WriteMap view on Windows version.
- Corrected Header Letter Casing export option to also apply to Header Numbering setting, when set to Decimal.
- Removed the question mark character from file names when saving files.
- Updated autosave message wording on iPad to give clearer information.
