Simple save as .txt or markdown would be very useful.

Other ideas I have it so be able to export notes to Facebook or other online services. It would also be very handy if notes program is basically a very simple text editor that can write markdown.

Not really the same I would say.

Exporting or saving notes as plain txt files without sharing it via email or bt as vnt would be very useful. Copy & paste into a second app is only an unsufficiant workaround.

We're working on adding support for sharing notes as .txt files via both Bluetooth and Email, and on adding support for importing .txt and .vnt files into the Jolla Notes application right now. I can't give an ETA on when the feature will be released, unfortunately, but hopefully "soon". There are some Bluetooth certification concerns which we need to clarify and, if needed, fix before we can release the features.

Cheers, Chris.

@chris.adams: Saving notes locally as vnt and txt should be available too and quite easy to do. Is there a d-bus interface that can be used to store vnt or txt notes locally?

From my PC I transfer files via ssh (or mtp). I don't wont to send them via email to myself. And transfering files via bluetooth is not always possible. My old PC doesn't have a bluetooth radio.

And Apple doesn't support file transfer via bluetooth. To transfer a file to my wifes iPhone I start the WLAN hotspot on the Jolla and than Sailserver app. On the iPhone she can open the browser with the url of my Jolla and download the file. Works very well.

In 1.1.6 you can share a note as a .vnt file using bluetooth or email.

That is not very good, for example in my Mac there is no program to open a .vnt file. Why not pasting the note as plain text to the mail message?

Yes, it seems .vnt is very obscure format ( but it could be that it is standard for mobile and that is why Jolla chosen it to be default.

As a workaround, you can use other text editors such as TinyEdit – available from Jolla Store – to save text files with any extension you wish including ".txt".

I hope this can help!
