It's been eight months since Primate Labs acquired VoodooPad. We're starting to think about what we want to include in VoodooPad 6. Some things, like iCloud support, are obvious. Other things might not be, so I wanted to create a thread where users could tell us what they want (or what they don't want) to see in VoodooPad 6.

    I finally got a reply from Primate Labs ... and tried my registration info again and it works. I don't know whether it was just me not doing it correctly before or something has changed but a suggestion for anyone else who had the same problem - maybe try again...

    Thanks to Primate Labs (John) for the reply. Looking forward to version 6 when it comes out.

    Any update on when VP6 will ship?

    It's been a busy fall with the Geekbench 5 release.

    We're still hoping to ship something at the end of the year but it's more likely to be a preview release rather than a final release.

    Hello,
    I share the sadness of seeing that VP is no longer progressing and I find it so unfortunate that Gus is being sold his product which is (was?) really a jewel.
    That said, I still use it every day and I don't have any problems blocking it while I use Catalina as soon as it comes out. For that, we must thank Primate Labs for its work in keeping the application functional even if it is no longer their priority.

    Waiting for you to take my money for version 6! :-)

    Our plan had been to work on Geekbench 5 and VoodooPad 6 simultaneously but for a number of reasons (including staffing) that didn’t work out.

    That said I use VoodooPad 6 daily and I’m excited about how it’s shaping up. It’s taking longer than I had hoped but it’s still a product we’re invested in and want to see succeed.

    I really wanted to see VP6 this year too and am disappointed it won't be coming. VP5 feels and looks dated.

    That being said, I'm clicking the "Buy" button in the Mac App Store the second VP6 is released...obviously, I hope it's sooner rather than later.

    My major VP6 wishlist hopes:
    • rock-solid encryption (this is my #1 request)
    • Touch ID support for MacBooks that have Touch ID (maybe this is handled on the macOS level and not the app-level though. What I mean I'm looking for is if we password protect our VP documents, when we launch them we can use Touch ID to authenticate instead of entering the password)
    • iCloud Drive support/syncing
    • option to buy through the Mac App Store
    • a unified single interface (ie: get rid of the pullout drawer and replace it with a sidebar

    Jim, do you have any specific concerns with VoodooPad 5 and encryption? Plausible Labs did a lot of work improving the encryption layer in VoodooPad 5.1.4 and we're currently not aware of any issues with it.

    John, have you tracked down the encryption issue I raised in this thread?:

    The problem still occurs on my setup.

    We're still unable to reproduce the problem with our encrypted documents, and I'm still confused as to how Spotlight can read the encrypted documents in the first place. We'll keep working on that issue.

    By default, encrypted documents have the spotlight indexing option turned off. But if you flip the "Make document searchable from Spotlight" switch in the Info ▸ Document section of the palette, encrypted documents will write out the little cache files so spotlight can index it.

    @Hawfinch - can you check and see if that button is turned on or off for your document?

    Maybe there's a way to start with an unencrypted document with that switch turned on, and then the document is encrypted and the setting isn't turned off?

    Hi Gus - Yes, I just checked and that switch was on for each of my encrypted documents. I've now flipped it off and I believe that's fixed the problem. I can create a new page and Spotlight does not create an unencrypted copy of it in the cache.

    Thanks for your help - and for creating VoodooPad!

    Thanks, Gus! It should be easy for us to disable that setting automatically when a document is encrypted so it doesn't affect other users in the future.
