Today I’m happy to announce the first new release of ScratchPad in four years. It is a very small update that gets rid of the old pre-Yosemite style buttons and replaces them with modern OS X elements (see the screenshot). It also adds support for Retina displays. This should ensure that ScratchPad continues to look up-to-date even if Apple changes its UI again.
You can update by either clicking “Check for Updates” in the “ScratchPad” menu in the menubar or by downloading the new version directly.
Version 1.4.1 is just an interim release until ScratchPad 2.0 is finished. It is still under development and I work on it when I can, but it is difficult to find the time with all of the other projects I also have going on at the moment.
You can find more information about the application on ScratchPad’s website as well as the source code on GitHub.
If you would like to leave feedback or report a bug, please contact me.
- [Updated] Updated back & forward buttons to use OS X’s native buttons.
- [Updated] Added Retina-compatible icons.
Very nice to see an update to this very useful app.
The only problem I’ve been having is pasting in text from other sources always messes up the styles (background color, size, etc.). I know there’s a “Paste and Match Style” option, but is there any way to make this default? Or better yet, add a plain-text option?
