Sync with Standard Notes

A.B.C. 5 days ago 0

Simplenote doesn't provide (zero knowledge) encryption nor plans to, so Standard Notes is a nice alternative. It would be very, very nice if we could sync with Standard Notes rather than (Automattic's) Simplenote.

An example of such an implementation can be seen at

Sort and/or Filter "view"

sebastiano_rametta 2 months ago updated by Alex Jenter 1 month ago 2

Add a feature to open a "Sort and/or Filter by" menu to have an output where the current sorting chosen for the notes is not altered but applied only to the Sort by (results) View(s).

By this I could find and open one or more result search/folder Views, i.e. notes related to specific tags, sorting by date, one of the keywords set I use to apply to the note (i.e. from sender, note captured by Outlook msg), and so no.

Pencil support

Jul 3 months ago updated by Citation Vault 2 weeks ago 3

Hey guys,

what do you think about pencil support? I would like to use CintaNotes as an alternative to MS onenote and this feature is missing.

An option to disable rich text

john2020 8 months ago updated by Alex Jenter 8 months ago 1

I don't like rich text and don't use it anywhere, even in documents. Is there an option to disable it? For example, when I write numbered lists, the numbers are automatically "enriched". It breaks all my workflow because I need Asciidoctor/Markdown syntax for my lists. Also, it is very distracting.


As I discovered, this feature was _removed_ in 2.7.1 (CintaNotes 2.7: Options → Editor → Text formatting). I think it was a bad idea. A lot of technical-skilled people don't like Microsoft-Word-like ways to deal with text. Instead, lightweight markup languages like LaTeX, Asciidoctor, and Markdown are their best friends. I don't think we really _need_ Markdown in CintaNotes (although it would be great) - it could be too hard to add the parser/renderer and redesign the UI. But at least, please, give us back the option to use _simple plain text_, that is, to use Markdown or Asciidoctor _syntaxes_ (without the appropriate parsing and rendering).

More intense highlighting of current section title tab

Hector 9 months ago updated by Gregory Holmes 4 months ago 1

Currently, it is not easy to know what section of CintaNotes is selected, other than looking at its contentes (notes titles) or reading the small text on the the bar (top, left). It would be great if the currently active section title tab can be highlighted very clearly to stand out (for example, thick line border, or bright color background, or bold font title, or a combination of these); this means less fatigue when using the program. I suppose this is easy to implement. Thank you.
