We’ve made several improvements in the latest betas, here’s some highlights:
There’s a new “attachments” field type which lets you attach photos and any other files to locations in your collections. If it’s a photo that has a GPS location, Maparoni will use that to put it in the right place, too. Use the accompanying
photo(...) formula to display a thumbnail directly on the map, or click the attachment in the locations details to preview it with QuickLook — you can even use Markup to crop or scribble on them, or use a formula like
photo(...).fill(green) to tint the images.
There’s a set of new formulas that adds interactive controls right in the UI, to dynamically provide a value or selection that you can then use in your formulas. Very useful for adding rich filters, or dynamic appearances. You can add multiple of these to a single preset, too.
This feature is experimental at this stage and you need to opt-in through Maparoni’s Preferences on macOS, or the Settings app on iOS.
Our User Guide for beginners got a big, big update and is now a walkthrough of the various features of Maparoni. Check it out! It is also hooked-up now to the search in the Help menu in the macOS app.
Check out the change log for what else is new. There’s a lot more, such as Desktop Class features and a streamlined card-based interface for iPad, cleaned-up location details for iPhone, an improved formula editor on macOS, and many, many fixes and tweaks.
