Version 3.13, December 12th, 2021

This is mainly a bug-fix release, including correcting several problems with ODT input and output; also a crash when pasting text into a storyboard, and another crash when removing boxes from an ODT file when compiling.

A new feature is the ability to filter rows when viewing a storyboard, making it easier to concentrate on certain story threads.

You can now target multiple sizes of print book by specifying (custom) in the page style but leaving the paper size values empty. This picks paper size values up from the configuration, so you can target, for example, paperbacks and hardbacks with different configurations.

Version 3.12, October 11th, 2021

This release brings you spell-checking as you type, a feature that has been frequently requested by customers. You can switch it on with the command Book | Check Spelling Automatically, and suspect words will be underlined in red. You can edit the text directly to fix it, or you can right-click (control-click on Mac) for a menu of suggestions and other options.

Another new feature is the option Remove all formatting in the Formatting Cleanup dialog. You can choose whether to keep certain formatting: bold, italics, superscript/subscript, URLs, and headings. Otherwise, all text formatting is removed and paragraphs are reset to the selected style.

Other additions include an Italian translation for the user interface, an image viewer for media documents that are images, and a new configuration option Bibliography formatting template so that different formatting templates can be used for different formats, such as ebook and print.

Support for Big Sur in beta, December 3rd 2020

As you may know, Apple have released some pretty interesting ARM-based Macs recently, running Big Sur (macOS 11). Big Sur and ARM support has required some retooling of Jutoh, but a beta is now available on the Download page for intrepid Jutoh customers to download and try out. It's a universal binary, so will run on Mojave and higher, Intel or ARM (natively). This beta also adds dark mode support on Mac.

All feedback on the beta is appreciated!
