  1. 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.

      • Display more than one (configurable) preview lines in the notes list

        Like, you know, most other Simplenotes app out there :-p
        And in particular the iOS app

        • 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.

                      • 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.

                        • Add basic font/size preferences

                          Hello,

                          I'd like to suggest that Metanota provide basic font preferences for all notes.

                          I'm not suggesting any rich-text capabilities here - just a single, application-wide setting to at least control the font family and size for viewing/editing all notes in the application.

                          By comparison, Notational Velocity can do this; it provides the following settings in application preferences:

                          - Foreground text color
                          - Background text color
                          - Font family
                          - Font size

                          Thanks for considering this. I'm really enjoying Metanota.

                          Regards,
                          Dave

                          • Share notes with friends and students

                            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.

                            • 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.

                              • 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.

                                  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.
