Yes, this used to be, many years ago, such a fantastic app. Now, it never works correctly. I have so much data in this thing and I wish I had never started using it. It's so insanely bloated and yet it can't manage the most basic things like formatting the primary editing screen... sad, just very, very sad.

HI, need some help. I need to open V 6.2.2 again to get some journals that did not make it to MJ 7.0 (not sure why. But my ole 6.2 wont accept my old registration information. I am using v 7.0 (318) currently. DOES ANYONE HAVE a MJ 6.x.x serial number I can use to open this older version? (I will then copy and paste my "hidden" notes) Thank you in advance.

I don't know about the blogging aspect of this, but for quick notes, lists, full screen writing, using service to add selected text and quickly organize all the above it's great. I use it daily now that it's back. Thank you, developer!

This is one of those apps that I installed years ago without ever using it and that I suddenly re-discover happily! :-D I won't use it for blogging, though but as a 64 bit replacement for the old https://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/4906/inotepad that I've been using until today. I've been able to customize it very close to iNotepad. So I can't be more satisfied. :-)

So far so good! Moving from Windows to Mac I was hunting for a decent Journal. I used to use the David RM journal which isn't compatible with Mac I found loads of Journal apps but none of them ticked every box. This is the closest I have found to my old journal. I just need to find out if I can upload my old entries to it. And where this one is being saved!!

This 'integration' to my previous review is just intended to THANK Dan for working so good ('hard' is never enough and often counterproductive for a REALLY 'good job'!). I will take this opportunity to encourage him again to avoid to jump on the 10.14+ OS for the reasons that anyone using SERIOUSLY our Macs knows too well (but  doesn't care: they make money with toys and gadgets ("STEVE… LOOK DOWN!!!"; he ever pursued the target to build the best computers but now the crowd migrated from computers to funny phones, totally useless as computer substitutes!).

MacJournal was ground-breaking and still is an amazing application. I'm so glad to see that Dan Schimpf has kept it alive. These days, you'd get (you DO get) developers asking for subscriptions for apps half as good, and this is free. I'm so hoping that development will continue.

Thanks for the quick update, Dan (and don't abandon High Sierra IF YOU CAN OR explain to me what the bloody hell has 10.14 that 13 doesn't have; maybe Metal support?)

Was (will) it NECESSARY to drop the support to High Sierra? It's a serious question because I still have to know which advantages it has (disadvantages A LOT: like in this case, it stops to be compatible with THE BEST System Utilities and programs (opps… yes-yes, I know: now they call them 'apps' … wurgh…).

I have lost all but the first sentence of the last 3 blog articles I entered into MacJournal. I have version 7.0.1. I have loved this software but these are huge losses for me and I will have to stop using it.
