I just saw a blog post outlining why someone prefers WorkFlowy to other note taking and list making tools. It included the gif above. I liked the summary, because it emphasized something that’s hard to describe: that WorkFlowy excels at helping people think clearly, and link thoughts together. Have a read if you like, it’s called, “WorkFlowy to the Rescue“
If you use Swype, you can now hit enter and it will create a new line, as expected. Enjoy Swyping!
Update: Unfortunately, we have had to disable this change. It created a serious bug in the normal iOS app, causing hitting delete with one character left in an item to also trigger a “return” event, and thereby wreaking all sorts of havok (you don’t expect hitting backspace to create a new item, right?). We’ve looked into a better way of doing the fix, and are hoping to implement it soon.
It used to be that in search mode, you only saw:
- Items matching your search,
- Their descendants
- Their ancestors.
This annoyed a lot of people, especially those who use tags heavily, because sometimes they needed to explore their WorkFlowy document while a filter was active. Now, you can do just that, you can expand any list while in search mode.
A fair number of people seem to have been really annoyed by this issue, so hopefully this saves you a few gray hairs!
Note: The root level of a zoom level currently doesn’t have the ability to expand in this way, so let us know if this gets in your way.
You can now paste hierarchical lists from either Microsoft Word, or from a plain text editor, and WorkFlowy will maintain the hierarchy of the text. This is a basic feature that we’re really happy to finally support.
