  1. 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?

    • 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.

      • 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.

          • 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.

            • 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.

              • 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.

                • 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.

                  • 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.

                      • 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 :-)

                        • Search with hotkey is unusable

                          Make search barsticky or something else
                          Now need press hotkey twice for recover focus on searchbar
                          Hotkey must start search, but not show/hide searchbar

                          • 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?

                            • 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.

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

                                • 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.

                                      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.

                                        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.
