  1. Fantastic work. I got you some fruit on a plate, hope it helps 😉

    I have a tiny request – if only the app would stop being difficult about me using .md as extension so I can edit them also in other apps ;-)\
    It keeps warning me with a modal popup. That’s a bit over the top, markdown files are after all .md files so that isn’t THAT bad 😉

    But hey, I don’t save new files that often, it’s not urgent. Keep up the good work!

    1. You’re absolutely right, that alert is superfluous but I never noticed it since I mostly use .txt files. I was able to correct this behaviour and I will publish an update soon.

  2. Hello there!
    This editor is absolutely incredible, and I love the minimalist design. Thanks for sharing with the world. I have two questions you might be able to answer.

    1.
    I am using a very dark theme and noticed this. When my sentences reach the bottom of the page in fullscreen mode, every time I press enter, the scrollbar on the right will light up then disappear. And this happens every time I press enter, and it can be distracting. (especially in a dark theme) Would you please make it so that the scrollbar stays invisible unless the mouse enters the scrollbar region? (Like how iaWriter fullscreen mode behaves. And here is my System preference setting: System Preferences > General > Show Scroll Bars > is set to ‘When Scrolling’)

    2.
    Is it possible to always use the app in typewriter mode? Making the current line always stay at the center of the screen? For example, when I launch the application, my first line starts from the top. I activated the Modus > Keep active line fixed, but it didn’t help.

    Any help with these will be appreciated. And thanks again for the incredible app!

    1. You’re right, the scrollbar flashes when you use the “Keep active line fixed” option and you get on a new line. I fixed this at some point, but it seems to happen again, so I will fix this with the next update.
      What “Keep active line fixed” does is unlike other apps that keep the typed text at the center of the window. in uFocus, it literally does just that: it keeps the active line fixed at its current position, so you can first scroll the text until the cursor is at the desired height, and if you type something and get on a new line, the text will automatically scroll.

  3. Now that the text size in uFocus can be controlled with command +/-, would you consider offering more font size options? In particular, I like 17px which is the default on iOS. Right now, uFocus jumps from 16px to 18px.

    1. You’re right, I will change the text size interval from the current 3pt to 1pt, so that you can have any font size that you like.

  4. Thank you! The editor is a masterpiece. Especially for someone who suffers from periodic chronic lack of focus. I love the typewriter sound. I am old enough to have experienced typing on a typewriter but savvy enough that I hardly ever use paper now. The typewriter sound creates intention behind every word that is typed. And the focus mode is another gem. I will be donating soon but I wanted to congratulate you on your work and thank you for putting this tool out there.

  6. It would be so usefull if your mac app would support Nkit format to convert to wbfs. Is there an update upcoming?

    1. I’m afraid that the NKit format is not supported by the wit/wwt tools used internally by Witgui, so unless they support it in a future release there’s nothing I can do.

  7. Hello dear author!

    Thank you for the great app. I would to love to use your app in future! But I have one feature request. If you add Preview mode, so that you can edit with applied markdown it’ll be much appreciated!

    Thank you!

    1. I’ll add a Preview mode in an upcoming release, but you won’t be able to edit it, at least not yet. That would probably require quite some work that I’m not sure if and when I can tackle.

  8. Hi Nicolas,
    I want to use uFocus v3.9.1 on MacOS 10.11 (the Apple Store mentions 10.10 as minimum requirement, plus a 64bit processor, which I have). Now guess: the app won’t start. In the Konsole app I found this:
    28.05.21 20:11:30,779 com.apple.xpc.launchd[1]: (org.desairem.uFocus.830112[1777]) Service exited due to signal: Illegal instruction: 4
    Can I do anything around this? Do you need more information? Or is the the requirement info on the App Store just aged?
    Thanks for any hint!
    Uli

    1. You’re right, uFocus used to crash on macOS 11.12 and earlier. The newest update should fix it.
