What's new in The Archive
Fixed: On macOS 10.11 (El Capitan), the "External Editors" table heading displayed a reddish border.
Changed: The Saved Searches editor in the preferences now has a more native preferences look to it.
Changed: The built-in black and white "The Archive" icon for Saved Searches renders more sharply now. You have to re-select it in the Saved Searches editor for the changes to take effect.
Changed: Adjust the size and position of the "(x)" button in the banner that explains you don’t need to manually save your notes to match the Omnibar.
Changed: Display crash reporter windows on top of the main window (so it is not accidentally obstructed on launch).
Changed: Make thearchive:// URL scheme action ignore the case, so matchOrCreate and matchorcreate or even MatCHorCrEaTe will work.
New: Sort notes by their creation date.
New: The currently active note sort order is highlighted in the View > Sort By menu.
New: Support for setting hidden preferences: app settings that didn’t make it to the preference panes. Use thearchive://preference/PREFERENCENAME/set/NEWVALUE/ and thearchive://preference/PREFERENCENAME/delete to change these. A list of customizable entires is in the online help
