Natural Language Dates

We've added natural language date support across the whole platform. Jump to any date from anywhere on the platform with the new 'Jump to Date' command (cmd / ctrl + d). Type in 'Today', 'Next Tues', '12th Sep' – and it will automatically recognise which date you are meaning. Cards you create that contain a date within the title will automatically assign a 'Targeted Date' to that card. Our Calendar menu now also includes an input so you can jump to any date easily from that menu.

18th Feb 2022

Introducing Supernotes 2, the biggest update we've ever done! In this release, we've added two new views (Graph, Broadsheet), a brand new Super Editor, a new place for daily journalling, and much much more. Here's everything that's new...

Graph View

Visualise all the connections between your cards in our new graph view in 3D and 2D. Supernotes displays both hierarchical (solid and straight) and linked card relationships (dotted and curved) at the same time. Single-click on nodes to display cards in Preview, or use the hotkeys such as shift + click to open and alt + click to pin cards. We've also included a fullscreen toggle and a play button so you can sit back and journey through your galaxy of knowledge.

Try it now

Broadsheet View

Our all-new Broadsheet view introduces a newspaper-style layout to Supernotes. It will automatically create up to 5 columns for you to read vertically. Great for fitting more information on a screen. Your preferred view type for each parent will be saved and synchronised between sessions.

Try it now

Daily Collection

The previous "Today" collection has been supercharged into the Daily Collection, which allows you to navigate to any date, not just Today. Switch between a Weekly (List View) or Monthly (Broadsheet View) planner. We've also included a Calendar dropdown, so you can quickly select a day / set targeted date. Day objects have a "heatmap" to quickly indicate how many cards you have on any given day. Drag-and-drop is also supported for cards + dates, so you can easily move a card to a different date, setting the new "targeted date" property.

Try it now

Super Editor

We've enriched our Markdown typing experience with our new Super Editor. It greys out the markdown syntax and renders elements as they would be presented in display view. i.e. bold is bold, code is syntax-highlighted and monospaced etc. Multi-cursor support is included as well - just select some text and press cmd / ctrl + D to quickly select all instances of that phrase and modify it in one fell swoop. You can also reorder lines by the alt + / .

Try it now

Mobile Apps Early Access

Our Android and iOS apps continue to be in early access and have been further optimised for Supernotes 2. Upgrade today to receive your exclusive invite to the Supernotes mobile app.

Desktop Apps Early Access 🖥

Up to 5x Faster for large libraries ⚡️

Speed is important, and even though Supernotes has never been considered slow, performance is our top priority. We have done some major reworks under the hood, so everything will load even faster – blink and you will miss it! For users with especially large card libraries, you should see the most improvement.

Try it now

Covers 📰

Every Noteboard now has a cover at the top, which quickly shows the information about where you are. Don’t like the new covers? You can hide them with one click using the up arrow in the bottom right of each cover.

Try it now

Thoughts Collection 💭

Many of you already have 1000s of cards on Supernotes, and sometimes it can be hard to surface cards that you haven't looked at in a while. In an attempt to make it easier to find those cards, we've added a new collection called 'Thoughts' – these are "lonely" cards that either don't have a name/content or don't have any parent/child cards. With the Thoughts section, you can flesh them out, junk them if they are no longer relevant, or just leave them in Thoughts to help you find them later. Let us know what you think over on the Community and if you have suggestions for other default collections.

Try it now

API Keys and Security Improvements 🔐

You can now generate API keys from within the new settings menu, paving the way for future integrations and use-cases. We've majorly improved the experience around logging in, so that you will need to do it much, much less frequently while still maintaining a high level of security! We have also made some major improvements to the API, which you can find here.

Try it now

User Settings, Preferences and more Themes 🎨

We've moved things around a bit, so now all your settings reside in the new "Settings" menu. Here you can access the new "User Preferences" screen, which allows you to customise whether your cursor spawns in the title or body of a new card, the hotkey used for opening up the card coupler, and set your themes. Speaking of themes, there are two new ones – a sepia-style theme called 'Deuterium' and a darker dark theme, 'Carbon'. The process of switching between themes should now be much faster as well.

Share Pages 📮

Quickly share a single card with a friend even if they don’t have a Supernotes account, using a secure link. Great for sharing recipes, concepts or notes. Your friends can then add this card to their library on Supernotes, with your permission. You can now create multiple share codes with different permissions, and cards no longer have a share code by default for increased security and privacy.

Need to keep track of a few cards? Now you can pin them! Alt + click on any title or use the 'Pin' button in the more card options menu to pin any card. Once the pin panel is open, you can also drag and drop cards to add them. As pinning requires a bit more screen real estate this feature is Desktop only for now.

Visibility 🌗

We have replaced Indexing / Undexing with a three stage Visibility option. All your cards which were 'Indexed' are now marked as 'Priority' and show up in the card tree. By default cards are now 'Visible' and show up in the command prompt etc. Finally we have 'Invisible' cards which is reserved for cards that you no longer want to see on a daily basis. Visibility is personal and configurable only by you – no one else will know you have made their card invisible!

Try it now

Import 🗳

To assign a color or icon to a card, you can use the "quick-add" menu (click "+" or use hotkey: /) while editing a card.

Improved Preview Mode 🖼

After collecting lots of feedback on the new Preview mode (introduced in 1.1), we have re-configured Preview to be much more ergonomic. It is now restricted to only appear on top of the Noteboard (not the entire screen). Additionally, clicking on any card title (or hitting space while focused on a card) will show the Preview. If instead you double-click on a card title (or hit shift + space while focused on a card) the card will open immediately in the Noteboard, allowing you to quickly see all of its child cards.

Reintroducing Cutting ✂️

One of the best features of Supernotes is the hierarchical + graph structure you can build by nesting cards inside each other and by assigning multiple parents to a child card. However, sometimes life gets in the way and you need to sever these relationships. This can now be accomplished using the "cut" button, which can be found in the "parent-link" dropdown menu when editing a card. When you "junk" child cards which you have shared with other users, Supernotes will now ask you if you wish to "cut" the card from any of its parents as well.

Dark Mode Refresh 🌚

Connor, our super CTO, often works late into the evening and is very particular about his dark mode! We have taken some time to rebalance our dark mode color scheme (along with a few UX tweaks) to make Supernotes even easier on the eyes for those long, late-night sessions. We have also improved the theme switcher (located in the user menu in the top right) to now have three values – light, dark, and automatic. If you have a device that supports a system-wide light/dark mode, "automatic" allows Supernotes to always reflect whichever mode is active on your device. Bonus: this theme preference is now saved, so when you come back after a break or log in on a different device, it will look how you left it.

Quick Preview 😎

Now, when you click the name of a card, a quick preview window will pop up. This allows you to quickly view the content of a card, without losing focus on what you are working on. When you're done, you can dismiss the preview immediately by hitting [esc] or clicking anywhere outside of it. If you want to mount the card, just click on the button above the preview, or press [Shift] + [Space] at the same time. You can even scroll through the cards in the Noteboard without leaving preview by using the ↑ and ↓ keys.

Card Links 🔗

This is a big one. Reference other cards inline using a new option in the quick-add menu. Then, click on the link to open the referenced card in the new Quick Preview mode. Super handy and dandy if you want to link to other cards without forcing them into a strict hierarchy. What this really means is that you can now use Supernotes as a fully-fledged Zettelkasten system.

Cover Page on Print / Export

We redesigned the print / export to pdf. It is now formatted a lot better, especially with larger numbers of cards. If printing from within a parent, the parent card and its join code are now bundled on a beautiful cover page, with the child cards on subsequent pages. This is super handy when sharing notes with people who do not have Supernotes yet or when you require a hard copy.

This allows you to interact with the 'parent' card itself in the sidebar while continuing to write 'child' cards in the main noteboard. Or, if is distracting to have the card on display while you're writing your notes, you can always minimise the sidebar by clicking the Supernotes logo.
