To get started, create a new entry by clicking on “New Entry” in the toolbar or choosing “New Entry” from the File menu. You can also drag files from the Finder in to the Sidebar or the Entries list to import them as an entry. Show the Inspector from the View menu to see settings for the current entry, journal, and document.
What’s new in version 5?
- All new interface, built for Mac OS X Leopard.
- Add any kind of content, not just text. Drag PDFs, QuickTime movies, images, and more into the Sidebar to create an entry with anything on your computer.
- Open more than one MacJournal document at a time and save them wherever you want, or just use the default document and never worry about saving.
- Create Smart Journals from searches you perform.
- Create aliases to entries that you can store in other journals.
- Assign each entry a rating, status, and priority, and sort any journal by those values.
- Record video from your iSight and attach it to any entry.
- Performance enhancements for working with large numbers of entries.
I’ve downloaded MacJournal and linked it to my blog. So I’ll never need to log directly into the system through the portal. This should make it more convenient for me. Instead of having to open a browser, enter the URL, login, and password. Then make a new entry, upload photos, and create the appropriate links. This system should do fine. I’ll have to see on how it handles different image sizes. MT has a good system of creating clickable thumbnails for large images. This has been on my ‘things to do’ for a while, just never got around to downloading and registering MacJournal. Now I see why people like it.
Shout out to MacHeist who made it possible. I didn’t really think about this program until it arrived in my bundle.
