MarsEdit 4.2.3: Image Quality, Gutenberg, and More

December 21st, 2018

MarsEdit 4.2.3 is now available at the MarsEdit home page and on the Mac App Store.

This update addresses a few bugs, including one that caused copy-and-pasted images on Macs with Retina (high resolution) displays to be downgraded upon pasting into a lower-resolution image. For example, a screenshot capture taken at 400×400 pixels would be pasted in MarsEdit as a 200×200 image.

I also addressed a minor, but annoying issue when editing posts that contain “blocks” added by WordPress 5.0’s new Gutenberg editor. In MarsEdit 4.2.2 and earlier, editing these posts in MarsEdit’s Rich Text editor would cause additional, blank paragraphs to appear between the WordPress blocks.

Finally, I fixed a couple issues with formatting text in Rich Text mode, and restored the ability to copy and paste text from Microsoft Word to MarsEdit. Here’s the complete list of changes for this update:

  • Fix a bug where images that are copied-and-pasted into MarsEdit could lose Retina resolution precision
  • Restore copy/paste functionality from Microsoft Word to MarsEdit’s post editor
  • Fix issues that prevented font changes in Rich Text mode from being applied reliably
  • Improve behavior with Rich Text editor and WordPress Gutenberg content, to avoid adding superfluous paragraphs
  • Fix a bug where text in the editor could switch to the wrong color in Dark Mode after running a formatting macro

If you enjoy MarsEdit, please consider writing a review or rating the app on the Mac App Store, spreading the word on Facebook or Twitter, and of course, writing about the app on your own blog! Thanks for your support.
