Quality of Life Update

This update focuses on many minor improvements so that working with Zettlr becomes much more pleasant. While the previous two updates focused on fixing bugs that unfortunately made it into the app, this update can solely focus on improving your interaction with the app. We heavily improved the readability mode, the global search, and the TableEditor. But also outside of these three larger modules we have improved the app's behavior a lot. For example, the app now remembers if you had the sidebar open, and even on which tab you were so you don't have to open the sidebar again and again when launching Zettlr.

As always, we encourage you to read the full changelog below to see for which things you can finally forget your clumsy workaround and just enjoy writing productively!

Changelog

GUI and Functionality

  • Display inline math using monospaced font
  • Right-clicking citations doesn't select parts of it anymore
  • Inline-equations are now properly syntax highlighted
  • Fixed a bug that caused unintentional pastes when closing a tab using the
    middle mouse button on Linux
  • Heavily improved the full text search: Previously, certain files that should
    have been returned for specific search terms were not considered a match, and
    multiple results per line were mostly not reported; additionally, search
    results are now ordered by relevancy and the search results are marked more
    visibly
  • Heavily improved the table editor user interface: Now the table editor will on
    certain actions write all changes back to the document so that the possibility
    of data loss involves a single table cell at most in case the user forgets to
    un-focus the table. Furthermore, the table editor will now not be removed from
    the document when it loses focus, and instead the table will be updated
    silently
  • The log viewer now only displays errors and warnings initially
  • Fix a small visual glitch on macOS for toolbar searches
  • Added "Open in new Tab" button to link preview tooltip, when user has
    preference "Avoid Opening Files in New Tabs" set to true

    working on MacOS

    all platforms, you can customize the appearance using the selector

    will additionally treat sentences smarter than before
  • Fixed an issue that would sometimes break images when you edited the caption
    in the rendered image caption.
