SwiftText is a quick-access scratchpad for your Mac. Configure it with the keyboard shortcut of your choice and you'll have a text editor that appears whenever you need it to make a note – and disappears with a keystroke so you can get back to the task at hand.

We hope you find SwiftText to be as useful in your everyday Mac life as we do.


Release Notes:

- New HUD (dark) window style window in Preferences. (macOS 10.10 and up only)
- Text area now remembers settings such as Check Spelling, Smart Quotes, and Smart Dashes.
- Text area now remembers position and text selection between launches.
- Adjusted the SwiftText window's behavior around Spaces and Exposé. SwiftText no longer shows up when making another window full screen, unless "Stay on top until dismissed" is enabled.

Extremely useful app - First of all, earlier I wrote a negative review of this as a result of my error—I didn’t realize the app operated from the menubar and thought it was not working. I apologize for that. I have found this to be a very useful little app that I use daily. It gives a convenient place to “set down” information temporarily that is both quick and easy to access. The text is saved automatically without having to do a thing, and is always there when you need it. Once I got used to using this, I found it hard to do without it. Recommended!

DOA - I downloaded this app, but it will not open. The first time I attempted to open it, I saw a message saying something about a keyboard command unable to be configured. After that, nothing happens at all when trying to open.
