Is there a way to find old versions of my notes after editing?
Simplenote has this functionality and Evernote

    I'm using Boostnote stored using Google Drive File Stream and this gives me multi-device syncing and note versioning for free... I prefer the tagging system in Bear (and would readily subscribe) but note versioning is a must

    @zach it's not a permanent fix, but you could use [Bear Backup]( to Google Drive File Stream. I have mine setup in a Cron script to backup every other hour, which I (hope) would be sufficient enough for the sake of versioning. It also acts as a secondary backup source, which is nice.

    See attached for a screenshot of my test :)
