WriteMapper 2.9.0
Spellcheck and Autocorrect:
- The key focus in this version was to rewrite the content editor's Spellcheck implementation on desktop versions, creating a more efficient and consistent writing experience for our customers. Spellcheck now finds suggestions quicker when you right-click a misspelling. Also, styled text now retain their attributes when corrected
- We've also built an Autocorrect mechanism into the content editor, allowing for an even smoother typing experience. Autocorrect also uses a smart algorithm to determine if your typing should be corrected, based on the similarity of the suggested correction. You can enable or disable this behaviour from the Preferences window, where it's enabled by default on macOS

Other Improvements:
- Enable pinch-to-zoom on the iPad to also pan to the zoomed in local region

- Fixed an error on the desktop version when clicking the cancel option in the open file dialog
- On iPhone, fixed selecting Cancel from the Select Snapshot menu showing an empty menu
- Fixed misalignment of Preferences menu items on 5.8-inch iPhone screens
- On iPhone, prevent situations where new node topic text entry on the WriteMap view is blocked by the toolbar
- Corrected a bug on Windows where spellcheck sometimes deviates from the selected language

Quick Edit Node:
- You can now edit the contents of a node in a scaled-down editor mode, designed for making it easier to jump into jotting down some words without having to open the full editor. Quick Edit Node is accessible via a new keyboard shortcut, Ctrl+Cmd+E on the macOS and iPad versions, as well as on Alt+Ctrl+E on Windows

Export Options:
- More granular export configurations are now available in WriteMapper, allowing you to customise how your WriteMap should translate to the exported text document. A new "Export" section has been added to the preferences panel, from which you can adjust these new settings to your liking

WriteMapper 2.3.1
Improvements:

WriteMapper 2.2.0
Snapshots:
- WriteMapper now keeps a backup of a history of your work with this new feature. The five most recent versions of the five most recently saved WriteMaps are saved to Snapshots, which can be accessed from the “File” menu, and from the “Open” button on the iPad. There also exists the option to remove all Snapshots, if you’re worried about them occupying disk space

Export As OPML:
- We’ve added another export format, on top of the five existing ones. Adding OPML format export, with the app already supporting import of OPML files, will enable you to move your work in and out of WriteMapper and use it with other programs that support the format

Quick Search:
- Finally, you can now search an entire WriteMap’s node topics at once, and find exactly what you were looking for. Quick Search is accessible from the WriteMap view in the menu bar on desktop under the “Node” menu, the toolbar’s more options button (•••) on iPad, and with keyboard shortcuts on both (Cmd/Ctrl+F)

Improvements:
- On desktop, added optimisations for improving performance of viewing and editing WriteMaps with numerous nodes

- Prevented source information of images getting lost whenever the content editor was opened/closed

- Set ‘mins’ to singular (‘min’) instead of plural if the estimated read time info is one (1) minute
