Preview: Web Images Preview in Your Editor

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.

Welcome to the image preview preview 😉 This new feature aims to make the work of website owners and bloggers easier, who store their images online and use URLs to reference them in their texts. With the current version, this works well when they export their texts; however, the Ulysses editor so far only displays tags for web images. But this is going to change!

With Ulysses 15, when you type (img) and reference the image with a URL, the app will retrieve a preview to display in the editor. On all your devices! That way, you can have a better overview of referenced images, and it’s easier to write about something the image is meant to illustrate.

What’s also new is that the PDF and DOCX exporters in Ulysses 15 will be able to handle remote images. So, if your images are online, there’s no more need to download and insert them in Ulysses; it is enough to provide a URL.

Preview: A New Way to Search Your Keywords

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.

Keywords are great for assigning your texts to certain categories. They’re versatile: Novelists may use them to indicate the progress of a chapter (“First Draft”). Copywriters label the texts they’re currently working on (“In Progress”). Bloggers reproduce their blog categories in keywords, as they’re transferred when publishing from within Ulysses. And so on.

With the new version, keywords will become even more useful. On Mac, we added a new way to search your keywords, making it a lot easier for you to spot sheets tagged with a specific one.

Preview: Split View Lets You Work With Two Texts Simultaneously

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.

Sometimes, when you write, you need to have an eye at two texts at the same time – or at one text, but two times: research on the left, actual writing on the right. Original on the left, translation on the right. There were ways to achieve that with two separate windows, but Ulysses 15 will make it much more comfortable to work this way on your Mac: with a native editor split view!
