MarsEdit 2.1

A new release of MarsEdit greeted me when I got home. It presents a few nice fea­tures s well as speed enhance­ments, I’ll let the MarsEdit guys do the talking.

In sum­mary, MarsEdit 2.1 has a new search fea­ture, a new cap­sule-based tags edit­or, sup­port for Mov­able Type tags, sup­port for sav­ing drafts to the serv­er, massively improved pre­view per­form­ance and usab­il­ity, and a bunch of oth­er per­form­ance boosts and fea­ture tweaks.

One thing which I like and have wanted since I got the app is the abil­ity to save drafts to the serv­er. I’ve wanted to see this as occa­sion­ally I begin a post on the iMac and want to fin­ish it on my iBook and syncing was­n’t so easy. I was hop­ing that I’d be able to sync the posts using this new fea­ture, and using this hack

add a cat­egory “MarsDraft” to any of your posts, and when MarsEdit sees the cat­egory, it will auto­mat­ic­ally assume that the post is to be treated as a draft.

it kind of works. One sad thing though is that the draft appears in the pub­lished sec­tion under my blog title (but still as a draft), hope­fully there will be some­way of mov­ing it to drafts until it is offi­cially published.

Oth­er­wise a great release from the Red Sweat­er Soft­ware gang!

Edit: After a nice email exchange with Daniel I just want to cla­ri­fy my post. That is expec­ted beha­viour at present, and my post has been tweaked to make it a little clear­er. Thanks for the response Daniel.
