Continue reading to find out what’s new, improved and fixed in this update.

File search has returned to Markor! Search is decoupled from file browser and supports recursive file search.
In the editor there is also a new dedicated button in the menu toolbar for search.
Now there is always a search button available in all type of pages, even better it’s always at the same position.


Improved image, PDF sharing and printing

The color scheme is now automatically switched to light with white background, when sharing or exporting a document as PDF or image. As PDF export and printing uses the same Android feature, the improvement is also available for priting.

With this change, Markor will always automatically generate clean white documents for you (without theme specific background color), perfect for printing.

Improved file handling

Markor will ask now if a file should be opened inside editor, if it’s one of the extended list of expected file typs. You will now get a dialog to choose between Markor or external app. This list of file types includes but is not limited to data exchange (like csv, json, xml, yaml) and development (c++, java, python, ruby, golang, bash) files types.

There is also a new settings option in the general section, which allows to specify a comma seperated list of file extensions that always should be opened with Markor. If you want to open files with .gradle and .pro extension, as well files without extension: None, .mytype.

Various improvements

  • Always view files starting with “index.”
  • Setting to configure wrap mode (=line breaking)
  • Menu option for reload file (editor/viewer)
  • Menu option for hiding files & folders starting with a dot
  • Setting to set tab width
  • Improve back button when always start view mode is set
