I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

  1. Hide Vertical Panels and HTML Preview

    Would be a great option to paid users to be able to hide the left to vertical panels and just leave the writing section :)

    I would also love to see an HTML Preview of the Markdown.

  3. Attachment support with the help of DropBox

    An idea for adding attachments, without blowing up the idea of simplicity:

    Add option for connecting an DropBox-Account. Add an area (e.g. below the note field) for dropping files. If a file is dropped, add a (shortened) url pointing to the file in the dropbox to the note - this allows accessing the files from any other client. Within Metanota a click on the file can open a local file copy.

    In my opinion this can be a lightweight way for enriching metanota with attachments, without impairing the basic idea of simplenote.

    What do you think?

  4. Global keyboard shortcut to create new note

    A global keyboard shortcut to popup a new note entry window. Pressing this key combination would be available whether or not Metanota was in focus or not.

  5. Make 1.5 line spacing optional, so note can look like it does in SimpleNote

    Allow note to look as it does in SimpleNote, without the mandatory wide spacing between lines.

  6. Access local folders

    I'd like to be able to work with local folders.. then I could sync with Dropbox. This would be a good solution for working with iPad programs such as Notesy which support folders?

  7. Simplify the UI

    The architecture of the app is exactly what I'm looking for — particularly the ability organize by tag/label — and I'm ready to switch from nvAlt and purchase your Pro version. But... the UI is clunky.

    1. Open Sans is not a good font for small sizes and just bad for UI. It lacks the letter spacing/forms and spacing that Lucida Grande does. Some ideas: http://tinyurl.com/6yxoz4q

    2. There's appears to be no option for picking a note font. Why? Again, Open Sans is not a good font here. When writing/coding allowing for user preference is critical.

    3. The button sizes…

    The logo is already gone, font options are in the to-do list now. The “giant” buttons will stay though, at least for a while :-)

  8. A writing only mode

    I would like to be able to enter a "writing only" mode where the only thing I see is the note editing portion of the 3 panes. This way I'm not distracted by folders, or anything else and I can simply focus on writing content.

  9. prepend Metanota notes with -- Metanota:

    By typing

    -- Metanota: 2.0 - What's New
    -- Metanota: How to write notes using markdown
    -- Metanota: etc

    You will end up with all of your notes being grouped together regardless of the sorting mechanism.

  11. Provide an option for hiding Simplenote sharing tags

    Simplenote is using email-address-tags for sharing of notes. I don't need to see such tags in folders list. Actually these are wasting space. There is very rare use-case of looking what i have shared with specific email address. So i'd like to have an option to hide specific tags but see them after clicking on "See All" or similar in folders list.

  12. Add folder names to listing of titles and dates

    I'd love to be able to see the folder name in listing of titles and dates. That would make it much easier to assign folders to notes collected previously in Simplenote web and iPhone.

  13. Timestamping notes

    Allow a simple keystroke, e.g., <SHIFT><COMMAND>T or <OPTION><COMMAND>T to insert a long or short date/time.
    This allows easy tracking of jobs, etc., for consulting and other work.

  14. Password Protect MetaNota

    MetaNota has been been default go to app for note taking these days. I have been storing all my ideas and journal entries in it.

    What would be great is if I could password protect the app, so that MetaNota asks me for a password each time I open the software.

  15. Import RTF or Txt formats

    It would be great to be able to drag an RTF? or a plain text file onto Metanota or the sidebar and for it to create a new note using either the filename or the first line (up to the first newline char) as the title.

  16. add attachments

    If you are going to expand your backup service providers (evernote, box, etc); then please allow attachments.

    I was able to clear out 2000 emails into 50 notes, but I can't get rid of the last 200 because of attachments.

  17. Check to see if the email URL is too long before you embed it.

    Google complains if the URL is too long, so can you do a quick length check before you send me off to google? I would suggest truncating it if it's too long, but that's up to you.
