Doc­u­ment man­age­ment

How and where your files are saved

Mac Format - - RATED -

Ulysses tries to be a repos­i­tory for ev­ery­thing you ever write. Open its three-pane view and you ac­cess a li­brary and your cur­rent folder. You can rear­range files us­ing drag and drop, cre­ate smart fold­ers, and Shift-click mul­ti­ple items to tem­po­rar­ily group them in the ed­i­tor. You also get cross-de­vice iCloud sync, pe­ri­odic back­ups and pow­er­ful ex­port func­tion­al­ity. Text, HTML, ePub, PDF and DOCX are sup­ported, along with direct pub­lish­ing to Medium.

iA Writer has a new Li­brary pane – a search­able doc­u­ments list that syncs with the iOS app us­ing iCloud (al­though files can al­ter­na­tively be saved lo­cally). The app ex­ports to text, HTML, PDF and Word. By­word is sim­i­lar (mi­nus a side­bar), but adds RTF and La­TeX out­put, and a £3.99 pub­lish­ing in-app pur­chase for di­rectly post­ing to Medium, Tum­blr, Word­Press, Blog­ger and Ever­note.

The oth­ers are sim­pler: WriteRoom han­dles PDF; Fo­cused ex­ports to HTML and RTF; Ommwriter will ex­port to PDF and RTF, but only al­lows one open doc­u­ment at once.

Ulysses has se­ri­ously pow­er­ful doc­u­ment man­age­ment and ex­port ca­pa­bil­i­ties.
