Myary Release Notes

Due to the large number of new functions and revisions, I decided to set the version number to 2.0.0. Below I will explain some of the most interesting new features. The complete list of changes can be found on the Myary release notes page, the appropiate link is listed above.


A lot has happened in the area of ​​markup and Myary now offers even more support and features in formatting your texts.

Myary also supports the markup language MarkdownExtra now, which is an extension of the regular Markdown language. MarkdownExtra is also known by many other names, such as github-flavored Markdown or Parsedown. Popular features of this markup language include formatting for tables and strikethrough text.
MultiMarkdown Exe
By default, Myary uses the Perl version of MultiMarkdown, which has not been updated since version 2. If you want to use the newer version of MultiMarkdown, you can now do so in Myary. In the Preferences of Myary, the MultiMarkdown option makes it easy to set up the latest version of MultiMarkdown for Myary in just a few steps.
Markup menu
Markup now has its own menu item in the main menu, which has been enriched with many commands. To all commands there are also corresponding keyboard shortcuts which allow easier and more enjoyable writing and formatting. In addition, the desired markup language can be quickly set via this menu item.

:: CriticMarkup
: Also new is the possibility to use CriticMarkup. CriticMarkup is an extra syntax for commenting and correcting texts. CriticMarkup is available in all markup languages ​​after activation through the preferences. Additionally, within the preferences the look of CriticMarkup can be adjusted for the preview.

Modernized User Interface

When you first start Myary 2.0.0, the redesigned user interface is immediately eye-catching

More compact appearance
Myary controls have been grouped together in the toolbar, giving you a better overview. If you do not need the toolbar, you can also hide it, which makes the look even more compact. In addition, the normal title bar can now be hidden, making the toolbar a quasi title bar, offering the familiar modern look of macOS apps.
Bright, dark user interface
In the earlier versions, Myary already offered the ability to switch between light and dark appearances. This has been further improved to match the general macOS style. In addition, it is now possible to quickly switch between light and dark user interface via the menu item Display > Light / Dark User Interface without having to restart Myary.

Icons for Notebooks

Myary now offers even more options for creating icons for notebooks. An exact overview of all possibilities can be found in the help of Myary. However, I would like to highlight at this point the new way to use Emoji as icons for notebooks. The setup is very simple. First, open the Emoji panel (Main menu: Edit > Emoji & Symbols). In the Preferences of Myary under General, select the appropriate notebook that should be provided with an emoji, and then drag the desired emoji from the emoji panel to the icon field in the Preferences. After saving, the new icon is already set up. With Emojis a very large number of possible icons are available.

Until next time!
