Keep It for Mac1.10

24 February 2021

Store notes, web links, and documents in one place.

What is Keep It for Mac

Keep It is for writing notes, saving web links, storing documents, and finding them again. Available on Mac, and as a separate app for iPhone and iPad, changes are automatically made available to all your devices with iCloud. Keep It is the destination for all those things you want to put somewhere, confident you will find them again later.

Features
  • Create, edit, view and save:
    • Notes with styles, checklists and attachments that look good and read well on all your devices
    • Web links with live previews, or saved as PDFs for offline viewing
    • Rich and plain text files, and Markdown documents
    • Add any other kind of file, and see previews for most images, documents, web pages, and more
    • See summaries and thumbnails in the list for most files
    • Use the Recents list to see things you’ve added or viewed lately
    • Share items with iCloud
  • Organize:
    • Folders let you organise things hierarchically - select a folder to see everything it and its subfolders contain
    • Use bundles to gather items into one place - items can be in more than one bundle at a time
    • Use labels to color-code items for quick visual recognition
    • Add searchable tags and comments
    • Make items favorites and drag lists to the Favorites Bar for quick access
  • Search and Filter:
    • Search everything in Keep It: names, tags, file contents, dates, kinds and more
    • Choose suggestions as you search to create complex searches with ease
    • Use keywords and natural language for dates while searching
    • Save searches for later reuse
    • Use the Tag Filter to see all items with a tag and any other relevant tags; choose another tag to drill down further
  • Use Keep It with other apps:
    • Compact Mode reduces the app to a single column, ideal for using alongside other apps
    • Drag pretty much anything to Keep It
    • Copy clickable links to items in Keep It
    • Share extension can add links, text, images and other files, and append text to notes from within other apps
    • Save files to Keep It’s folders to automatically add them to the library
    • Use a bookmarklet to add links from web browsers that don’t use Share extensions

What's new in Keep It

Version 1.10:
Summary
  • Search for items by their attachments
  • Saved searches can now find shared items, and items by their file size
  • Search for items that are not of a particular kind
  • Hierarchical folder and bundle list in the Share extension and Import view
  • Option to automatically use the last import destination by default
  • Choose a format when saving existing web links
  • Option to underline links in notes
  • Improved reliability when sharing items and folders
Search
  • Search for items that have attachments, by presence, name or kind. When searching, suggestions will be shown for attachments that exist in your library.
  • It’s now possible to search for items that are not of a particular kind.
  • Saved searches can now find items by their file size.
  • Saved searches can now find shared items.
  • On macOS Big Sur, the item count will now always be shown when searching.
  • The saved search editor now includes separators in the field menu.
iCloud
  • iCloud progress for saves is now shown as a percentage.
  • Improved reliability when sharing items and folders.
  • Fixed an issue where saving to iCloud could continue when everything has been deleted from iCloud on another device.
Sidebar
  • “Empty Deleted Items” is now only shown in the sidebar contextual menu if Deleted Items or one of its subfolders is selected.
Items List
  • Use Command-Up and Down arrows to scroll to the beginning and end of the list without changing the selected item (use Option and the arrow keys to select the first or last item, as in earlier versions).
Imports
  • The “Where” pop-up shown in the Share extension and Import View is now hierarchical.
  • In Import preferences, it’s now possible to set the Default Import Destination to “Last Used”, and that will apply when using the Share extension or import view.
  • Recent items and lists are now shared between the app and the share extension. Recents from earlier versions of Keep It will not be used.
  • Improved fetching summaries from HTML files in some cases.
  • Fixed a crash that could occur at startup when there is an invalid import created by the Share extension.
Notes
  • It’s now possible to show links in notes as underlined — change the setting by clicking Edit Styles in Fonts preferences and selecting the Body style.
Rich Text Files
  • Rich Text files will now show PDFs inline by default to match TextEdit and the thumbnails produced by Quick Look on the Mac. Choose Format > View PDFs in Place from the menu to toggle that behavior on or off for all rich text files.
Web Links
  • When viewing a web link, use the Web Link > Save As menu to choose a format.
General
  • The Save As Stationery menu item has moved from the File menu to the Item menu.
  • It’s no longer possible to create an alias to Keep It’s Files folder insider that Files folder.

There should be an easier way than using Automator to choose what folder you want your files to be saved to.

I am trialling this after the latest disastrous update to Evernote. So far it seems good. My main gripe though is that the web clipper is poor and I can find no way to add it to chrome or Vivaldi. The instructions for adding a bookmarklet don't work. If the clipper worked better I'd be tempted to go with it.

My second rating is for those who are still on the fence. KeepIt is a brilliant application for organising your notes, of all kinds. It is fast, does not stall, pleasant outline, super effective SEARCH...etc.

It's frustrating that I download the app, with the intent and hope to buy it. And every single time I launch the app it crashes. Again and again and again. How am I expected to make a judgment of an app I can't even trial run?

I'm trying it right now. Dragged all my notes from abandoned DEVONnote. Looks beautiful and works great. Search is excellent, as good as in DEVONnote, and even better.

Or just use the Notes app in iOS/macOS. :)

Have you ever thought of doing an Android client. I would buy the system in a flash if you did.

The support pages say you can put any type of file in Keep It and have them sync, but I can't seem to sync Scrivener projects. This, despite the fact that updates to cater for Scrivener have appeared in release notes.
