If you weren’t logged in when making the purchase, or if you registered your account later, you should have received an email with your download link after purchasing.

There’s some more information here on resending the email, and linking it to your account that might help:

Thanks, it’s really helpful to see people’s workflows for features like this; they can be so different from one another.

For the first part: what value do you get from seeing which day a tag was used?

Note that “Used” is kind of a loaded term here. For clarification, Deepdwn could only tell you which days had edits to files that currently have that tag, but not days that tag was added or removed, since that kind of history isn’t stored.

So, if you added a tag to a file today that had a lot of edits in the past, your whole calendar might light up. Similarly, if you had a file tagged for a while, and removed that tag (or the file itself), no days would light up for that tag, for that file.

If you could see all of the days that all files with “Notes For Future Me” were (ever) updated, what would you then do with that information?

I’m not against the feature, but I think there may be other ways that Deepdwn could help, and some of them might be helpful to people with different workflows as well.

is the document data specific to each machine?

It is, yes. As a core feature, all of Deepdwn’s data is local, including your global and per-document word counts. This info is store in a sqlite database next to your config file, but Deepdwn doesn’t have any facilities for merging these between multiple machines currently.

I’m sorry, I don’t know how to give support for itch.io. You could try contacting itch.io support: https://itch.io/support

You can download it from itch’s My Library page, or Deepdwn’s itch page.

For the first feature, displaying days on the word count calendar associated with a tag, when hovering be over tags:

Can you explain a bit more about how you’d use that feature, or what issue you would like to solve with it?

For the second one: do templates help with that issue (creating documents with predefined sets of tags or other data)? How are you using tags currently?

Interesting idea!

I don’t think there’s much demand for allowing Deepdwn to open files it can’t actually actually fully support, but I’ll keep it in mind.

Hi,

This isn’t possible right now, but I’ve added it for the next release.

Hi Namrog!

You can currently do a (basic) search in the search field of the Files panel that covers all text (and filenames) in your documents.

A more feature-rich search is planned, focusing on additional filtering, but I don’t have an expected release date for it.

Bonus 2: I believe many of the markdown/preview features in Deepdwn are available in VSCode, either by default or with plugins. I don’t have any plans to port Deepdwn features anywhere presently, though.

Hi,

The preview CSS isn’t currently customizable, sorry about that!

Very cool, thanks for sharing!

Thanks for the detailed report!

This should be fixed in the next release.

Ok! Glad it’s working

Hi,

There’s a bug that may be affecting you, I think.

Can you try changing your languages and tell me if your settings.json file has the correct languages afterward?

On Windows, it’s located at %AppData%/Deepdwn/settings.json

Hi!

You can either: Right click (or control-click) the app in finder and choose ‘open’, and then ‘open’ in the dialog prompt

OR (and this is probably easier)

You can install the application through the itch.io app.

You’re most welcome

Thanks!

v0.36.1 adds horizontal scrolling for tables in the preview and HTML exports, and shrinking in PDFs.

v0.36.1 has a fix for the incorrect outline highlighting issue

Thanks.

I’ve usually found that working with/editing tables that wide is also not a great experience in markdown, especially with automatic table formatting enabled.

For these wider tables, are you mostly just pasting them in, and then doing minimal editing on them afterward?

(1 edit)

Thanks for the feedback.

Are your tables wide because of the number of columns, or the content generally?

Thanks again, that part is (probably based on the screenshot) by design.

In practice, the next heading “takes over” when it has reached a specific threshold from the top, rather than as soon as previous one goes off screen.

There have been a number of different versions of this feature to date, and I think they all have some shortcomings in some situations.

Thanks for the report!

You should notice that when you clicked ‘test3’, the editor scrolled to the ‘test 3’ heading correctly, and it was briefly highlighted, but then then the wrong element will be highlighted in the outline panel (‘test 2’) until you scroll down slightly.

It’s kind of a minor bug because of that, but I’ll see about getting a fix out for it 👍

Good idea! I’ll add it to the to-do list.

That would be cool, but won’t be possible with the current implementation of vim mode, I think. I’ll have to see what’s possible in the future when that feature is replaced, following a bigger Deepdwn overhaul.

I’m not sure yet either. I’ve been able to reproduce it a couple of times (out of many). I’m working on a fix for it.

The other issue is that you’re getting them in the first place when it sounds like you shouldn’t have incoming conflict changes.

Does it only occur when using dropbox? Are you using any non-standard dropbox settings that may affect the way that your changes are saved or updated?

You might also try using the ‘polling’ option for checking file updates in Deepdwn’s advanced settings if you aren’t already. It’s a bit less efficient, but may help with this specific issue for you.

Thanks for the report!

I haven’t seen that personally, or heard reports about it, but most people probably don’t experience those conflicts so that’s not totally unexpected.

Here’s how that ought to appear (ideally): Deepdwn screenshot with file conflict modal at the top of the document

What version of Deepdwn are you using? What operating system + version?

Thanks very much, I’m glad you like it!

With the syntax highlighting, it looks like you also get a smaller font size (which looks better with a monospace font), as well as a different background color. So that’s cool.

Ideally, both of those would also be set when using inline code from markdown backticks as well. Right now, that just gets size 18 monospace, no background or border to distinguish it from surrounding text.

  • Markdown inline code: hello
  • HTML inline code: hello
  • HTML inline code with language class: hello

Thanks, I’m seeing similar results. Hopefully it’s fixed at some point, but I don’t think there’s much I’ll be able to do unfortunately :(

I’m considering adding flatpak, but probably not until after flathub finishes their store implementation so that Deepdwn could be added there (depending on restrictions and fees).

Looks great! Are there plans to add (basic, non-syntax-highlighted) styling for inline code as well?

After some searching, I think the two fonts you may want are ttf-dejavu and noto-fonts-emoji

Wow, that doesn’t look great.

I don’t have a solution for you offhand. Does it happen with the appimage as well?

The HTML escaping has been reduced to a minimum in v0.36. There are still some cases where things are incorrect (mostly related to pasting characters which contain markdown). I’ll look at improving that in a future update.

Deepdwn currently supports backlinks between documents directly (back references are displayed in the small panel below the editor), but I don’t have specific plans for links based on tags and categories (beyond viewing files in them already).

I guess it depends on what you’re looking to accomplish though! I don’t have plans for a large network graph between documents for instance.

Maybe!

I believe ubuntu users can also install libfuse2 (which is still in the ubuntu repo), but I’ll look into additional formats.

That’s an interesting idea! I’m a little wary of adding a new, alternate preview mode in general, but it’s a possibility.

In the meantime, Looking at the Marp CLI, it looks like you could set it up to watch and preview individual files (or a whole folder with --serve), and use that for previewing without leaving Deepdwn.

In the styled export, it’s in the first <style> tag in the exported HTML.

You’d want to change the .markdown-body h1 through h6 font sizes to your liking.

Currently, there aren’t any available export options, ex for font size.

For HTML, you can either edit the exported CSS to reduce the heading font size, or you can use the unstyled HTML export and add your own CSS to adjust those kinds of things. I’m planning on adding some more options to this in the future, but I don’t have a solid plan for customization.

Hi,

The goal of any escaping here isn’t to prevent your content from being treated as markdown, but to prevent pasted HTML being treated as HTML (which markdown supports).

In this case at least, Deepdwn is returning the HTML text content as is from that source, rather than doing any escaping of its own.

For instance, the author of that content didn’t need to HTML escape any of those characters, other than the <, but they did anyway, and Deepdwn happily passed them along.

Markdown’s HTML handling is less strict and would allow < in some circumstances, but not others.

[n]<word” would be allowed but “[n]<word > something” needs escaping on the opening “<”, or else “<word >” will be treated as HTML and dropped or escaped, depending on your markdown conversion.

I’ll see if there’s anything I can do to improve it, but there’s a good chance that you’d still see some escaping where you wouldn’t necessarily want it, in which case Paste as Plain Text is still the best answer.

Discord integration (showing your writing status in discord), and tag/category autocomplete were both added in v0.35

This was fixed in v0.35.
