Keep It 2.2

Keep It Icon

Keep It 2.2 is now available. This version adds the ability to merge multiple items into a single note, and to convert various files to notes. Folders, bundles and saved searches can now be duplicated, there are improvements to the Share extension, and more.


Multiple items can now be merged into a single note. Notes, rich text, HTML, web links, Markdown, mail messages and plain text files will all be shown inline, and other files will included as attachments, with each item separated by a horizontal divider. When merging items, it’s possible to choose the order, the name of the merged note, and whether or not to move the originals to Deleted Items.

Similarly, any individual item can now be converted to a note or an attachment on a note. Previously PDFs and images could be converted to inline attachments on notes, and web archives and web links that can be shown in Reader mode could be converted to notes. Now rich text, plain text, mail messages, and Markdown files can also be converted to notes, and all other files as attachments — with PDFs, images and movies shown inline, and everything else as an icon.

Lists & Items

It’s now possible to duplicate folders, bundles and saved searches on both Mac and iOS, and to duplicate multiple selected items on iOS (which was already possible on Mac).

On iPad and iPhone individual folders or bundles can be exported without using drag and drop, and a new action menu above the items list makes it more convenient to find items, change how the items list is sorted, and choose other options. On iPhone the tag filter can now be resized.

On Mac, Quick File or the menus can now be used to to move an item to a folder where another item with the same name exists — you will be offered to keep both or replace, as when dragging items to folders in the sidebar, matching the behaviour on iOS.

When searching on Mac and iPad, the preview area now shows “No Items Found” to make it clearer that a search is in progress — the number of results is still shown in the title bar on Mac and the status view on iOS, but this makes it clearer that a search is in progress. 


In the Share extension and Import view on Mac, there is now a search field for filtering destination lists or items, as on iOS, and you can create folders or bundles when adding things via the Share extension or the in-app Import View too.

On Mac it’s now possible to drag files, links and text to Keep It’s title bar to add those things to the current list. It’s also possible for Keep It on Mac to automatically convert Markdown and Word files to Keep It notes when they are imported (or en masse later) to help when moving from other applications that only export those formats. Markdown files will be styled using your current note styles, as when converting individual Markdown files.

And More…

Use the share sheet to start collaboration on macOS Ventura. Movies can be played in Picture in Picture mode on both Mac and iOS. On Mac the number of items can be shown above the list in Compact Mode, and you can click and hold on the history buttons to navigate directly to a particular item. There are also improvements when viewing images and PDFs on Mac, editing Markdown files on iOS, and saving existing web links on both Mac and iOS.
