    • Local sync between Mac OS and iOS

      I know there is no Metanota for iOS so I think it is a dream to have a local sync (without iCloud, DB or SimpleNote ...)

        • Sticky search bar

          It would be useful to have an option to permanently show the search bar once the program has been launched.

          • Copy markdown text to the clipboard as HTML or RTF

            It would be very useful if markdown formatted text in Metanota could be copied to the clipboard in HTML or RTF format. In this way text could be easily exported to a blog or a Word text.

            • Add tags

              Tags should be kept separate from the concept of folders. I like the folders, but would like tags that are not folders.

              • Correct Secure Input Mode

                From time to time, MetaNota disables TextExpander. On this page http://smilesoftware.com/TextExpander/secureinput.html#Metanota%20Pro I found this is because MetaNota leaves Secure Input enabled. This happens erratically.

                • Create a shortcut for show/hide Metanota and another shortcut for new note.

                  This is customizable in Notational Velocity and pretty time-saving.
                  Thank you

                  • Make URLs live clickable links in a note

                    Unless I've missed it would be nice to have URLs as clickable links in a note - similar to Simplenote on iOS or JustNotes on the Mac.

                    • Put notes in folders by typing the folder name, rather than clicking

                      I like Metanota. I simply prefer the keyboard over clicking.

                        • Add TaskPaper-like project and task automatic formatting & editing

                          I would find automatic formatting and editing for projects and tasks as in TaskPaper very useful (colon at the end of a line to indicate a project, dash and space at the beginning to indicate tasks, multiple levels within projects and easy selecting and moving of tasks be selecting entire lines. This would also work well with NoteTask on iOS.

                          • Upgrades of Metanota

                            I have just started to use Metanota. Nice application. I like it. Suggestions for upgrades:
                            - Colors in notes. Both in headlines and in notes as such.
                            - Changes of typography in notes. Bold, italic versions etc. Fonts and formatting features.
                            - IOS application of Metanota.
                            - Easy cut & paste of notes between folders.
                            - Excel type of notes as well as text based.
                            - Sharing notes and folders with others.

                            Best regards
                            Mike

                            • New "Pro" feature: Smart Folders (multi-criteria search)

                              Here's an suggestion for Metanota Pro:

                              - Provide a simple way for users to search notes by multiple folders/tags and date criteria.

                              - Provide a way to save and name those searches.

                              - Add a section to the folders pane of Metanota called "Smart Folders" under which all saved searches appear.

                              Then, the user could have easy access to smart folders that list all notes that match multiple criteria according to their needs.

                              For me, an example of a useful smart folder would be:

                              - Show ALL notes where folder IS "Work" AND folder IS "Website"

                              And even more useful…

                              • New Feature: Option to hide notes via tag/folder(s)

                                I've been using Simplenote for a long time, so I have quite a lot of notes. As a result, the notes list in Metanota is cluttered. It would be a better user experience for me if I could get certain notes "out of sight, out of mind".

                                To me, an excellent "pro user" feature would be the ability to automatically hide all notes that contain a given simplenote tag.

                                The way I envision the feature:

                                - Provide an optional preference field where the user could specify one or more Simplenote tags as their "archived note folder(s)".

                                - Then, the note…

                                  Nice idea ! I’ll consider a way to implement it “cross-providers”, as starting with 2.0 Metanota will support other notes “cloud” providers too.

                                • Add timeline-scrubbing support

                                  I used to use EtherPad for a workshop class that I teach, and the timeline-scrubbing feature, which lets you quickly 'replay' all edits to a document, is by far the most useful feature of the platform. SimpleNote's timeline is not as useful as EtherPad's, but it would still be wonderful to have support for this feature for those of us looking to find alternatives to EtherPad's too-flaky-for-work performance.

                                  • Export as a text file

                                    It is a bother to copy & past from metanota to a text editor and save it.
                                    it would be great to be able to export.

                                      I recently discovered Metanota tool and I'm very inclined to leave nvAlt. It would be wonderful **to share notes with friends and students**, both in its original format or in markdown format, without using simplenote site to do it. Also the simplenote preview via browser by markdown is corrupted, leaving margins for new ideas for embedded youtube videos in Metanota site preview.

                                      • Automatic list item formatting (like Notational Velocity)

                                        When editing a list, such as:

                                        - Item 1
                                        - Item 2
                                        - Item 3

                                        If the cursor is positioned at the end of a list item, and you hit return, Metanota should assume you're adding a new list item and automatically add "- " before your cursor.

                                        This is how Notational Velocity works and it saves a lot of keystrokes when editing lists in notes.

                                        Thank you.
