  • 2021.7   Just a minor bug fix here. This version fixes an issue that prevented saving in the Mac app. You should now be free to save away!
    Release 2021.7
  • 2021.6   It's the iPad update! A lot of work has gone into making this version the best iPad app it can be: - Cleaned up the iPad editing design to better take advantage of the extra space on the iPad. - Fixed a bug causing selections in the albums sidebar to be blue instead of the appropriate dark gray. Thanks to iOS developer Peter Witham for the assist on this fix. - The albums sidebar now shows your current selection at all times instead of disappearing after you change it. - Made the scroll bar look right in the settings view in light mode.

  • 2021.5   This is the “make life a little nicer” update. We’ve gone and fixed a ton of the little papercuts in Black Highlighter to make using it a better experience. Here’s the fixes we made: - Major performance improvements when initially scanning a new image. No more waiting to tap buttons or start highlighting! - Fixed several causes of crashes when using the “hide text” iOS action extension in other apps. - Fixed a crash that could happen when saving an image on iOS. - Updated the settings design on iOS. - Fixed a bug where you were unable to select new photos if you had not given Black Highlighter full access to your photo library. - Related, fixed a bug where using “only selected photos” could display two document scanner buttons. - Fixed some broken entries in the macOS help menu. - Added automatic restoration on macOS so you can quit the app and then launch right back to where you were. - Cleaned up the design of the open dialog on macOS.

  • 2021.4   This update introduces a new tool to the Black Highlighter toolset: the Magic Era er, the eraser. The totally normal eraser. Made a mistake and redacted too much? Switch to the eraser and bring back the text you didn't want to lose. Additionally, try out these other fun fixes: - The Magic Highlighter and Manual Highlighter icons are now easier to tell apart. - Fixed a minor performance issue when selecting areas to redact. - Fixed an issue on iOS with saving to the photos library sometimes being *incredibly* slow or crashing. - Improved design in light mode on macOS.

    Release 2021.3
  • 2021.2   Bug fixes! One for you and one for me: There was a bug where the preview that you saw prior to saving an image didn’t look exactly like what got exported. Previews would show a solid black box, while the export would have the fancy “marker” effects applied. Now the preview has the same effects, so you can see what you’re actually doing. Black Highlighter was supposed to prompt for App Store ratings occasionally after you saved or shared an image. A bug prevented this from happening. If you like Black Highlighter, please take advantage of the fact that this bug is now fixed. :)
    Release 2021.2
  • 2021.1   Just cleaning up a few of the “initial version” hiccups for the Mac version of Black Highlighter: - Fixed a bug where dragging an image to the app icon to open it didn’t work if the preferences window was open. - Implemented the “Open Recent” menu so you can quickly get back to a file you’ve edited in the past.
