It’s the same procedure as every year: In June, some members of Ulysses’ development team travel to the US in order to attend Apple’s World Wide Developers Conference. But what is it all about? Götz tells us, live from San Jose.
For Matt Morgan, writing is a means to relieve work stress and turn it into something useful. In his first book, which will soon be published with Simon & Schuster, he shares stories from the intensive care unit, one of the most fast-paced, pressurized places in a modern-day hospital.
Please tell us something about you and what you are working on.

Are you a purist who accepts words and nothing but words in your writing app? Then you can stop reading here.
But who is, really? If you’re a blogger, you’re probably a medium to heavy embedder of images. (Visualize a travel blog without photos. So sad.) When writing manuals, you may want to add illustrations; as an author of nonfiction books, you could use infographics to get your points across. If you’re a novelist, you probably won’t embed images into your manuscript, but you may want to attach photos or drawings to envision the setting and the characters of your story. Ulysses has a function for that, too.
In our new, fully-fledged image tutorial we’ve collected everything there is to know about the use of images in Ulysses. You’ll learn
The Sweet Setup have published a new video course. For launch week, you can save 20%.
Until a couple of years ago, Shawn Blanc had no system for his ideas, notes, and writing. Everything scattered over various apps, pieces of paper, and notebooks – it was frustrating and inefficient.
But then he started using Ulysses and turned the app into his central spot for all of his writing. And it turned out that this was very conducive to his productivity and focus.
Shawn runs The Sweet Setup, a website dedicated to in-depth app reviews and trainings aiming to help people become more productive. This week, The Sweet Setup have launched their wholly revised and extended “Learn Ulysses” course. The course is aimed at beginners and advanced users alike and comprises more than 30 videos. It covers Ulysses’ features into great detail, introduces concrete workflows and shows how to use the app effectively in conjunction with other apps. Furthermore, Shawn shares a number of strategies to become a better writer.
“Learn Ulysses” costs $57, owners of the old, less extensive course will receive a discount. What’s more, you can save 20% with launch week pricing, which is available until March 29, 2019.
Split view editing – a new feature that was recently released with Ulysses 15 – is helpful if you want to refer to one text while writing another.* Do you want to see your outline while drafting a chapter? Or display a text in its original language while translating it? We’ve assembled everything you need to know about it in a tutorial. Find out how to
enter editor split view on your Mac,
switch your vertical split view for a horizontal one,
toggle the active editor highlight,
scroll through two texts simultaneously,
and switch between the two editors with simple shortcuts.
Ulysses 15 has been published only a couple of days ago, but there’s more news! We’ve relaunched our platform for exchanging styles and themes, formerly know as the Ulysses Style Exchange. It’s got a new name – Styles & Themes –, a new look, and will hopefully make it a lot easier for you to find what you’re looking for in terms of styles and themes.
Ulysses 15 is coming! We’re currently in the process of beta testing, smoothing and polishing the new version. In the meantime, we’re giving you a sneak peek at the new features.
The new version adds a new way to search for sheets with specific keywords – you know that already. But that’s not all! Ulysses 15 will bring much more power to keywords (on Mac for starters): with a global keyword manager!
