newlines and text alignment

For some notes, newlines don't seem to be displayed when viewing the notes, even though the newlines are shown in the main view, and int the construct notes view.

The alignment of the notes also appears to be different from note to note, even when the "align left" or "align right" is selected fromthe preferences menu.

These two behaviors seem to change from when the theme is changed, and seems to be different on the iPad than on the Mac.

I know that formatting is scheduled for the next release, but any help you can give for version 1.9.2 would be greatly appreciated!!

Kind regards -

    Do you perhaps have the 'Allow HTML' preference set on the Mac?

    We actually recommend turning it off, because otherwise you need to do things like line breaks with HTML.

    Unfortunately alignment is handled differently on each device at the moment. You can use settings/prefs to set it. We are working to making it consistent across devices in future.

    Kind regards,

    Many thanks! The HTML preference was my problem on the Mac.

    On the iPad, I can't seem to find the alignment control - is this controllable on the iOS device?

    Thanks again!

    It should be in settings, which is a button in the library if you go to the root folder.

    I see settings for background, text size, font, and default view time for both prompt and content slides, but no control for alignment?

    Thanks again!

    Hmm, you're right. I thought we had an option for alignment, but apparently not. Sorry.

    The major update will allow customization of alignment for each slide.

    Kind regards,
