    Project mention: Delete Profile on macOS and Number Formatting Request | /r/joplinapp | 2023-06-07

    I've seen this question asked on the Joplin Forum, but why is the numbering format not more intuitive like other note taking apps as well as word editing software? I also have noticed that it does not auto-populate a number list when you enter "1.". This seems like common practice as most other apps have this feature, but Joplin does not. Overall, I have really enjoyed using Joplin, but see it as trailing other FOSS note taking apps like Notesnook and Standard Notes when it comes to UI/UX. Is anyone aware as to whether or not these issues are going to be addressed?

    Project mention: We launched a minimalist personal blog builder | /r/Entrepreneur | 2023-05-30

    Hi everyone, We just launched to seamlessly write (Medium like editor) and publish personal blogs. The basic idea is that when it comes to publishing your thoughts, there is no easy way. There are places where you can write seamlessly (like Apple Notes) but publishing it is a pain. Or there are platforms focused on enabling you to build a website or a blog (like Ghost or Webflow), but they don’t inspire you to write.

    I'm using Clutter to organize ideas. I also have a large number of tasks, but I can freely categorize them if I use Clutter. With Clutter, you don't have to "drag and drop into areas/categories". You can simply modify the tag to achieve the same purpose. This is what I love about Clutter.
