I’ve been using Devon-Suite for a few months, and I’m very very satisfied with the document management features. But for the note editing, to be honest, there are still a lot of things could to be optimized. Especially for the handling of images in notes.
Imagine that you are learning how to use a software, so you might add a lot of screenshots to your notes.
Markdown is super efficient for text editing, but not convenient for adding a lot of figures. You need to write ref, not just simply drag/drop or copy/paste images.
Using RTF or formatted notes
You can’t rescale the image directly in notes. In order to scale an image, it must be resized with external tools. And “Resize” also means loss of the details of images.
In other note apps, for example in Evernote, You can scale a large image to a small display size, so that it takes up less space in the text-body. If you want to see the details, you can double-click on the image to enter figure-viewer mode.
Alternatively, many modern markdown editors will automatically capture dragged-in images or images from the clipboard, store them in an internal image directory, and then automatically give you an internal reference.
e.g. after clicking CMD +V to paste a screenshot, the editor will show something like:
if you want to change the display size, simply add some suffix like:
c8479ae0a244c347134f33376e039bfe.png @w=600 % width = 600 c8479ae0a244c347134f33376e039bfe.png @h=400 % height = 400 c8479ae0a244c347134f33376e039bfe.png @w=200h=100 % width=200 and height=100 c8479ae0a244c347134f33376e039bfe.png @h=100w=200
Thank you all for the nice Application!
