Protect Your Ulysses Text Library with Touch ID or a Password

More Power to Ulysses’ Filters: Exclude Keywords or Text Occurrences

Ulysses’ filters can help you organize your work. They let you track the texts you want to keep your eye on. In Ulysses 2.8, we’ve added a new trait: You can now create filters based on negative criteria. That’s right! We’ve made it easier to sort out all the texts you don’t want to see.
