Marknote 1.3

Friday, 28 June 2024 | Mathis Brüchert

It's been almost two months since the release of Marknote 1.2. Marknote is a rich text editor and note management tool using Markdown. Since the release a lot has changed and many new features have been added thanks to the work of all contributors!

User Interface

On small phone screens, you want as much space as possible to write and read your notes. Marknote now lets you hide the editor toolbar on mobile, so you can focus on the important stuff while having the formatting options just a tap away.

On desktop, you can now adjust the width of the note list and editor by dragging the separator, just like in other desktop applications.

You can now undo and redo changes using buttons in the UI, rather than relying on keyboard shortcuts, which is especially helpful if you're using a virtual keyboard that may not have a control key.

The application menu has been reorganized and simplified to make it less cluttered.

Carl's work on responsive images has finally landed in Qt and now also in Marknote. This means that images no longer get cropped on small screens.

Volker implemented clickable links! You can now ctrl-click links to open them.

Switching to Marknote

To make it easier to switch from your current notes application to Marknote, Marknote now offers several import options. for now you can import your notes from KNotes and maildir.


The settings now longer open in an overlay dialog, and are now shown in Kirigami Addons' new ConfigurationView.

Thanks to Garry Wang, you can now change the color theme directly from Marknote's preferences.

New setting dialog

Bug fixes

  • The heading of the note list no longer overlaps the buttons if it gets too long, now it is hidden.
  • The list of notes now overlaps the header longer when scrolling.
  • Opening a note on a touch device no longer opens the options menu every time.
  • Thanks to Carl, file creation on Windows has been fixed so you can use the sketch feature there, too.
