Olver Reichenstein on iA Writer 5.1:

The all new Tags and x-callback-urls are so hip they’ll take you to funky town.

Here is how tags started. We decided to add smart folders to iA Writer for Mac. Just before wrapping that task up, someone on the iA Writer design chat said:

Great, now I’m going to use tags with smart folders and get organized.

I'm super excited about this new feature. I found myself organizing my writing in various different ways with iA Writer—including prefixing file names with hashtags to group drafts by topic. Definitely, this is going to be a game changer.

These are my highlights from this release:

  • Write #tags to group files (See tags working)
  • All hashtags are shown in Organizer and Go menu (and can be hidden from Preview and PDFs)
  • Added authenticated x-callback-url commands to read and write files
  • Dark appearance (will adapt to the system's light and dark appearance with the incoming macOS Mojave)
  • HTML tags are dimmed in Editor
