In what developer Shiny Frog described as its largest update yet, note-taking app Bear today received a version 1.1 update featuring new fonts, importing and exporting features, and more.
There’s a lot to unpack in version 1.1. Here are the highlights:
- Bear now includes support for bulk deletion and renaming of tags to better clean up your note organization.
- For increased readability, a new High Contrast theme, as well as three new fonts, have been provided for all users of Bear.
- Words prefaced with a (-) will be excluded for search, helping you refine your query.
- Syntax highlighting for the following programming languages: Perl, Ruby, Scaba, C#, Go, CoffeeScript, SCSS, Tex, R, and MatLab.
- More export options, including to TaskPaper, syntax highlighting in exports (Bear Pro only), and cleaner Word DocX exports, have been introduced.
- Day One, .TaskPaper, and .webbloc files are supported for importing files into Bear.
- Formatting options are available from the TouchBar on the latest MacBook Pros.
- Notes can be dragged onto a tag, rather than typing in the tag to each note.
- Web pages can be stripped down and formatted into notes through the app’s extension.
- Using “Hey, Siri,” you can ask Siri to read your note aloud.
