What's New in Version 3.5.5

This version offers small refinements and improves stability. Changes include:

• Fixed: duplicate backups should always be autosaved when closing documents.
• Fixed: copy-paste of an image from Apple’s Photos app should insert the image, not a link to that image file.
• Fixed: lists: documents from Word can sometimes open with incorrect list bullet characters, or incorrectly duplicated list items.
• Fixed: reverting a plain text document after adding formatting could trigger layout errors, and the document could not be closed.
• Fixed: renaming an open document incorrectly leaves the old entry in the Open Recent menu.
• Other small fixes and improvements. Full release notes are available via the Help menu.
