Slugline 1.1.0

We. Are. Back.

Slugline 1.1.0 is available now in the Mac App Store. This free update fixes bugs and makes things better, but perhaps most importantly, it exists!

Yes, it's been a while since our last update. We've been busy working on some very cool long-term projects, including some exciting new features for Slugline, but this update fixes a couple of nasty bugs that we just recently cracked:

  • When you turn off Character CONT’Ds in Document Settings, they are now really off, even in Preview and Print.
  • Pressing Tab at the end of a Dialogue element adds a Parenthetical to the next line. (Softly.)
  • We fixed a rare-but-nasty bug where missing or corrupted system fonts could result in no as-you-type formatting, changing Slugline from a screenwriting app into, well, an app.

Other changes:

  • You can now search the help documentation! And Slugline’s menus! Try it with ⌘ + ⇧ + /.
  • We fixed a rare case where long notes could be truncated in the Outline.
  • Arrow keys now nudge the Preview scroll in a soothing, pleasant manner.
  • When you start a Character with @, Slugline now offers auto-complete suggestions for other “forced” character names.
  • Speaking of forcing Character elements, you can now do that from the context menu.
  • We no longer auto-capitalize right after an open-parenthesis (happily).
  • Slugline now re-parses after a find/replace.

As always, you can download a free, 14-day trial of Slugline. The trial version has also been updated with the 1.1.0 fixes.

If you love Slugline, we'd be grateful for your rating or review, even if you've written one before—as the reviews reset with each update. If you ever have any questions, problems or ideas for future Slugline features, let us know!
