    If you need to search for an exact quote, put it in doublequotes, like this: "to be or not to be".
  • Support for mixed case tags.
  • "Cut" command for notes, and custom clipboard format to transfer notes from one notebook to another while keeping text formatting.

  • Ctrl+U shortcut for displaying untagged notes.
  • Last used export format is now remembered in settings.
