I think it's a first good reason for Bear to support it as well, just for
not being less usable than Apple Notes.
2. Secondly, as you said RDFd is supported by Macs. Bear being still Mac
oriented, many of your users have .rtf files trailing around on their
computers. Mac's default text editor has awlays been textEdit.app, which
stores files as ".rtf" by default, and as "*.rtfd*" AS SOON AS you add an
image in it.
There must be many people taking on-the-fly notes with textEdit.app, saving
them sometimes as .rtf, sometimes as .rtfd, and who would be pleased to be
able to at least import them into bear.
I am one of them. So to answer your question, I used RTFd just because I
used to take notes sometimes including images with Mac's default
textEdit.app editor : )
Indeed my current personal need is all about *importing* .RTFds
.... Which is not currently supported by Bear, is it ?
As for the need for exporting notes as .RTFd files... If would say if user
wants to share his note with someone who doesn't use Bear, and have it
editable ? ... but there is already .docx for that... So I guess you're
right, it doesn't seem to be worth any development time : D
I just upgraded to the last version, and tried to import .rtfd files, but it didn't work.
When I do it from click right + open, it shows nothing and note isn't imported.
When I do it from File > import from Notes, it shows the little loading indicator modal for a short period, then still nothing is imported.
Did you remove the feature from last time ? Or I am missing something ?
sorry, I forgot to send an update.
The file you send was indeed invalid, but while trying to understand what wrong with it I discovered the file was a bundle with inside a valid rtfd (probably the compression/decompression is to blame).
As you wrote the true rtfd was not importing and I have fixed Bear's RTFd importer. The fix will be available with next update.
