I'm happy to announce that the new version of CodeBox is available for downloading. It brings some great features that you have requested recently together with minor improvements and bug fixes. Here is a brief overview of what is new.
Search through Code
You were able to filter and search only through snippet names and tags. Now you can search snippets and assets through code and notes. This feature is available in a just released update 1.5.1.
Better OS X Lion integration
You could experience issues with Autosave and Versions previously. This update should fix all this stuff. In addition, a library window gets support for the Full Screen mode.
“Paste” button in the Edit Code panel
CodeBar supports very useful feature named Edit Code. You can edit placeholders before copying code into the Clipboard. With this new version, there is no more need to copy code manually. Now you can click the Paste button to insert code right into the active application automatically.
Social code sharing
It was one of the most requested features. In the new update, you are two clicks or one keyboard shortcut away from sharing snippets to Gist and Snipplr. Please check out the menu commands under “Library ▸ Share”.
Newcomers, meet CodeBox
If you use another snippet manager or plugin, it's really easy to get started with CodeBox. Go to the “File ▸ New Library From” submenu. I added support for importing snippets from the most popular apps. Please let me know if you miss some app.
Edit tags in many snippets
You might miss an option to assign the same tag to the multiple snippet selection. Now you can do this by dragging selected snippets into any tag in the Tags view.
Links in the Notes field
Since version 1.5, You can drag a file from Finder into the Asset Notes field to make a clickable link to that file or folder. If the file path contains spaces, they should be escaped i.e. “/Users/dev/Desktop/My\ Project”.
Finally, the update brings other little improvements and fixes many small issues. In addition, there are some new advanced options. Take a look at the updated Hidden Preferences.
I hope you will enjoy new features. Thanks a lot for your bug reports and feature requests. Be sure, all suggestions are carefully sorted, analyzed and considered for the future development. iCloud sync and iOS version are on their way, stay tuned guys!
