I’ve just posted build 210. Again Apple keeps rejecting the app. Good news is it means I can stuff more fixes into this release, again, again, again…

I’ve just updated the initial post in this thread for TaskPaper 3.2.1 Preview 204.

Bugs keep popping up. Just did one more release (207) that fixes some problems when typing near end of document.

I’ve just posted Preview (208). Let me know if you find any issues.

“Copy Displayed” doesn’t work for me in 3.2.1 (208). All it pastes is the word “undefined”.
Also the sharing widget still exports the whole content, not just the displayed content.

Thanks, I see the problem and will fix in next release… but I don’t think it’s a new one. At least the problem that I found also happens in 3.2. The problem that I’m seeing is if you select the last newline in the document, then “Copy Display” there will be an error and you’ll get “undefined” on the pasteboard.

To work around this just don’t select that last newline. Then for me “Copy Display” works.

Can you verify that you are seeing the same error… i.e. does the workaround work for you too?

This is intentional, generally in TaskPaper I want all selected text to be effected by commands. “Copy Displayed” is a special case command that doesn’t work that way. But it’s the exception.

Yes - it is indeed working that way for me. As long as I don’t select the last Newline marker it pastes properly.

This should be fixed in Preview 209.

Made it, 3.2.1 (210) should be out now. Phew!
