What's New:

Enhanced reminders functionality:

  • New setting "Repeat Reminder" under the Settings dialog. Select this option to keep the reminder alert going for 10 times every 3 seconds, unless you snooze or mark it as complete.
  • Quickly create red (important) reminders by including ** (two asterisks) in the reminder's text.
  • The reminder notification dialog is now bigger and easier to dismiss/change with the mouse or touch.
  • Reminder options "Edit" and "Delete" renamed as "Open" and "Complete".
  • A tooltip has been added to the reminder notification title in case the reminder name is too long to be fully visible.
  • An additional alarm sound can be downloaded from here.
  • Pretty small but significant UI change: New setting: Expand to Center (selected by default). Shrunk containers in the center of the workspace will expand to the center instead of to the right-hand side, as long as they remain fully visible once expanded. Deselect this option to revert to the previous behavior.

Remember: You can shrink containers back by double-clicking an empty space between the shortcuts or headlines (in RSS containers). RSS containers can also be shrunk back using the right mouse button.

Fixes

  • Shrinking containers by double-clicking on an empty space inside could have caused a container or a shortcut below to move.
