Update History (Mac OS X):

iPhone/iPad ... Mac OS X

(newest first)

Version 2.2

New support for Markdown:

Three new actions in the Edit menu convert the current Markdown text document or selection:

Markdown support is supported in both the iPhone/iPad and macOS versions of TelepaText.

Keyboard shortcuts:

Version 2.1.7

Improvements and a bug fix:
• Tile windows now works on the set of windows that are visible on the current desktop Space, so you can have different sets of documents tiled on each desktop Space. To learn how to use desktop spaces, search for Mission Control in Mac Help in the Help menu. (Document windows are not currently restored to their assigned desktop Spaces upon restarting the TelepaText app.)
• Tile windows now works properly when any document windows are in full screen mode, only tiling windows that are not in full screen mode.

Version 2.1.6

New feature and bug fix:
• Added commands Increase Paragraph Spacing and Decrease Paragraph Spacing in the Format menu, including keyboard shortcuts.
• Text view updates immediately now upon changing the Paragraph spacing option in Settings.

Version 2.1.5

New features and improvements:
• Improved automatic window tiling. If only one document window is open, it will be automatically positioned in the center of the space next to the Documents panel.
• Added paragraph spacing option in Settings view. This value is relative to the font size. 0.0 means no extra paragraph spacing. 1.0 means the paragraph spacing is the same as the font size. This option lets one see paragraphs more easily, and eliminates the need for two Return characters between paragraphs to create a blank line visually.

Version 2.1.4

New Speech Commands* and Improvements for TelepaText:
• New speech command: [Evaluate | calculate] [text | selection]
The selected text is evaluated and the result displayed.
• New speech commands: [Show | display] [Word Usage | Word Types]
Shows the Word Usage or Word Types view for the selected text or document.
• If Tile windows is performed with only one document window, then the window takes up only the left half of available space; short line lengths makes for better readability.
