Inkdrop Desktop v5.7.0

Hey Inkdroppers,

Happy new year, folks! Let’s make Inkdrop better.

:sparkles: Key updates

:clown_face: Smooth animations

I wanted to add some smooth transitions for UI components.

Here is a demo:

I’d like to make Inkdrop more fun to use with these animation effects.

:link: Internal note link expansion

If you insert internal note links, they will be rendered as rich links with note status and tags like so:

I found that it feels oddly satisfying when adding internal links with this feature. I love it personally.
I plan to add a feature that helps quickly insert internal note links from the editor in the future.

:memo: Create a new note from an empty link

Another improvement related to links is that you can create a new note from a link with an empty URL like so:

[New note]()

The app will create a new note when you click it on the preview pane.
It would be handy if you’d prefer the wiki-like workflow, where you create links before writing notes.

:bookmark: Clickable tags in the note list items

Tag labels in the note list bar items are now clickable.
It will filter the note list by the tag you clicked.
