Shiny new things

  • You can now move, rename or locate your vaults directly from the vault switcher.
  • There is now a new in-app help page with links to the online help docs, Discord, forum, as well as the sandbox vault.
  • The local help vault has been replaced with a sandbox vault.
  • You can now set the font for the interface and the editor directly under appearance settings. Note that some themes may override this font setting.


  • Improved Live Preview clicking experience for callouts and embeds.
  • Improved <iframe> for some websites that disallows being iframed.
  • There's now a command to open context menu for the current cursor location.
  • Vim mode up/down now goes into rendered code blocks, embeds, callouts, or tables in Live Preview instead of skipping them.
  • Pasting and dropping images or media files that are already located in the vault will now link to it directly instead of duplicating the file.
