I’m currently using DTTG 2.7.7 (16398) non-Premium. When trying to edit non-PDF text notes within the app, the selector doesn’t have drag handles, so I can only select one word or the entire body of the text, as in the attached photo.
Hold-and-drag to select words invokes the Loupé tool, which isn’t helpful in this case. Also, after a word is selected, tapping it again to change the formatting typically causes the word to deselect, rather than bring up the interaction bubble. This occurs when using it on my iPhone and iPad.
The larger context of this question is that I am trying to evaluate Forte Labs’ Progressive Summarization note-taking technique, which relies heavily on reformatting text notes: specifically, bolding and highlighting text. I prefer to work in text notes, especially Formatted Notes. I am having difficulty extending the method between macOS and iOS consistently and my workflow has become very iOS intensive with new fatherhood.
My understanding is that to consistently apply this method, I would need to adopt RTF notes as the standard format, and edit them in Drafts on iOS. Is this correct? Also, I have seen promises in posts dating back to 2018 for enhanced text editing in future DTTG versions. Could I become a beta tester for one of these versions?
