Highlights of MarkMyWords 2

New sidebar

The most obvious visual change in MarkMyWords 2 is the new sidebar, which replaces both the old drawer design and the previous file navigator. This makes the use of MarkMyWords more convenient.

Text clips

in the sidebar now also Textclips are located that replace the One-Click-system and are no longer tied to the respective Markup-language. There is also the option of creating groups for Textclips, e.g. on different topics in order to get a better overview of the existing Textclips.

Improved Extension-system

The Extension-system (formerly Plugins) offers with MarkMyWords 2 more possibilities. In addition to the new JSON data package, which can be transferred to Extensions and thus provides practically all available information about the current file, MarkMyWords 2 now also offers its own Extension-manager. With this, the Extensions can be managed, edited and new Extensions can be created directly in MarkMyWords.


Quicksave, formerly Predefined Folders, has also been revised. In particular, the creation of new directories has been simplified and can be done quickly using the MarkMyWords preferences. But the use of the Quicksave system in conjunction with the file-navigator has also been improved and now offers the user expanded options for adapting displays and behavior to their own needs.

So much for today, I hope you enjoy trying out MarkMyWords 2.

Until next time!
