I'm really glad to see that VP 6 is happening, as after some years in the wilderness, I've realized that there's still nothing as good as VoodooPad out there. Good to know it's under active development.
I didn't use any of the dropped features so that's a non-issue for me. The conversion of the pages drawer into an area of the main window is a little painful, though. I don't know why Apple has marched away from drawers... the VP Pages drawer took up minimal space relative to the amount of information it contained, and didn't shift the page around when you opened and closed it! It was ideal!

I have to re-trace my steps, have not exported from VP5 for close to a year. In any case, for RTF files it seems to bake in the css in the html and the hope is that nothing of such kind is done as then I had to write sed filters to yank that out. Even better, providing an external css url path via a template would be the way to go. This might be related to only RTF files but any html export from VP should be treated the same way.

It's been over a year since I last exported html from VP5 so I don't remember the details. This could RTF format related, last time it embedded styles as css into the html file itself. Those should be without any css or then via template point at external css url.
Now, this could be RTF format only related -- at the same time any internal format should be treated the same way when exporting to html.
I am tripping over a new behavior I would like removed or would like a preference to turn off. VP6 is automatically generating a link for a wiki style name. For example, when I type 'CodeCurrencyConverter' VP6 automatically creates a link. As I am a software developer, all of my class names are in camel case and trigger this link behavior, but I don't intend for there to be a link (that is what the link button is for).
VP5 and earlier did not do this. Can this be changed?

Yes, this should be a preference. Also could we now make automatic links in markdown files, i.e a link is automatically generated if a page with that name exists in the database. This happens with RFT files and is **very** handy for me.
In VP5 you could add an alias to a page (in info-aliases). It was handy; when you had a page named "Donald Trump", you could set "Donald" or "Trump" (or "effing bastard", if you were so inclined) as aliases, so that other pages would link to the Donald Trump page when using either the official name of the page, or any alias you installed for it.
This functionality seems to have been gone in VP6. Perhaps I just missed it, but if it is really gone, could you bring it back, please?
