  • Search and replace was not working on fields with unsaved edits
  • Selecting an annotation preset from the annotation contextual menu would do nothing

  • Using the mnemonic keys assigned to menus for Windows would trigger menus on macOS
  • The inspector was not always being updated when content block settings were changed
  • Non-ascii characters in HTML content blocks would not display correctly
  • Fixed a bug that would cause some revision notes to not display correctly
  • Root level headings were being converted to checkboxes when opening a checklist article

  • Releasing the mouse button outside of the window while resizing an image would cause the resize operation to become stuck until clicking inside the window again
  • Edit > Copy to Clipboard > Text and Images was not working properly on Windows
