Hi Team Bear,

I'm a paid subscriber to your awesome product and I'd like to make a request.

Could you provide a preference to hide the preview snippets from the Notes column? I've attached a screenshot for reference. The notes column would be easier to read for me if the snippets were hidden.

Thanks for a great product!

    Hi Paul,

    yes, we want to provide some customization options for the notes list in the future releases, but I can't tell when will be available right now.

    A big +1 for this feature. Taking notes on employees is hard to do with Bear as I worry they'll notice their names in the snippets while I'm showing them other notes.

    More specifically, I would like to opt out of including images in previews. Could be a global setting or per-note or per-image
    Also would dearly love to shrink the displayed size of images within notes.

    To me that goes along with using a note as a place to stash something useful for later. It's useful to stash a hi res image, but preferable if it doesn't take over the whole note and break the flow of writing.

    In addition to the other listed privacy benefits, which all apply to me, this provides quicker access to a longer list of notes in the Notes List column.

    Just switched from Simplenote, which has this (they finally adopted it from NValt). Must have this now.

    +1 Would definitely be a good feature.
