New features:

  • In the find and replace window you can use a new option "replace with copied style", which applies the style of the last copied text item to the replaced text
  • In the spell checking mode, your typing gets checked and you can see mistakes and suggestions underlines in your text
  • In the spell checking mode, you can select any unrecognized word from the text and add it to the users dictionary
  • In the preferences you can activate the hotkey command-option-control-N which brings the CopyPaste Editor to the front. If a window was open, you can use this right away to type, otherwise a new window is created. This gives you a kind of notepad at your fingertips
  • In the preferences you can set an option to use Google style search strings for finding, i.e. words separated with spaces are not necessarily neighbors, and exact matches must be included in "double quotes"
  • In the preferences you can change the general behavior when pasting text to ignoring style information. This can be useful if you grab information from many different sources which you want to combine in one single document. Pressing the option key when pasting from the palette reverses the setting
  • Some amazing new features coming soon...

Bug fixes:

  • Fixed the automatic saving of clipboards which failed to save the first clip in the Clip Recorder
  • A crash on systems earlier that 10.2.6 is fixed
  • Many more bug fixes specially with saving files, finding similar soundings and other minor things
