Zim Wiki improved

Zim Wiki was introduced in the previous update Markor v2.5.
This update includes many quality improvements and additions for Zim Wiki:

  • Editor: Support Table of contents (top menu)
  • Simplify Zim format detection
  • Add more text actions (links, images, checkbox, ..)
  • Support file generation on Android<7/Java=6

If you don’t know how the Zim format & syntax works, Markor also includes a reference template
that gives you an overview. It is available from the + (New file) dialog in the app or from GitHub.


Newline = new paragraph

By Markdown (more precise - CommonMark) specification, new lines only start a new paragraph when you end the line with two spaces (in the View Mode & exports). You might prefer to always start new lines. For this case there is a new settings option - with it enabled new lines also start a new paragraph.

You can enable this opt-in settings option in the Markdown section.

Per-file settings: Remember selected Format

Per-file settings were introduced in the previous update Markor v2.5.

With this update, Format selection has been reworked. The selected Format is now remembered and restored for each file and was moved to the File settings submenu at the top menu. The current selected Format is now highlighted.
