Findings

Lab notebook app for scientists.

FindingsOverview

Findings is a notebook app for scientists. When running experiments in a lab, it is crucial to keep track of what one is doing, to be able to later reproduce the results, assemble and publish them. This is what lab notebooks are for. For as long as science has existed, lab notebooks have been made of paper. There is something great about paper, and the freedom and flexibility it affords. But in 2014, paper starts to show its limits in other areas where computers have taken over: storing results, analyzing data, searching, replicating, sharing, preserving, and more. Findings ambition is simple: make your computer a better tool than paper to run experiments and keep lab records.

NEW

Fixed

  • Better handling of file URLs (with file:// scheme) in macOS Sierra, by showing the file in Finder instead of being denied access to the file by the OS sandbox.
  • Potential failure to set up Dropbox sync due to a 'bucket merge' error.
  • Nested folding in the document editor could mask the text content under the subheader, even though it was actually still there.
  • Inserting a paragraph after a folded header now unfolds the content so that the inserted paragraph is visible, and the folding status is consistent, again avoiding confusion with content seemingly disappearing.
  • Occasional loss of text fragments after multiple edits of a paragraph with multiple styles applied.
  • Infinite loop and application hang when quickly opening and closing an experiment.
  • Occasional loss of responsiveness (aka spinning beach ball) in the document editor.
  • Correctly saving content when switchcing between protocols less than a few seconds after editing.
  • Correct font size for subscript/superscript when pasting styled text in a table cell.
  • Better time detection from document text that refer to 'hours', to set timer duration automatically.
  • Tables sometimes missing when using copy and paste operations in the document editor.

Improved

  • Selection affinity preserved in the document editor.
  • Switching to Dropbox API v2 for the sync setup.
