Enhancements / Other Improvements

  • Enhanced Day One v2 Data Import to remove any leading blank lines during import (e.g. where there were images at the beginning of the entry).
  • Improved the parsing of entry title and short description shown in the Timeline to disregard any blank lines.
  • Day One v2 Data Import now checks to see if a valid JSON file has been selected.
  • Reintroduced performance fix during loading of entries (with the bug fixed).
  • Introduced additional checks in the Day One Classic Sync as well as the Dropbox Sync to make sure the destination folders exist.

Bug Fixes

  • The data import button would not work if there were no entries in the timeline. This has now been fixed. 

About the Update

Existing customers of Life Journal (on the Shopify store) will get an email in their inbox with a link to download the installer for the latest version of Life Journal. We also deploy the app at the same time to the Windows 10 App Store. Please note however, that it can take between 2-5 business days for the application update to show up on the Windows store since it has to undergo a stringent certification and deployment process (managed by Microsoft).

Important: If you purchased the app from the web site, it is important that you install this update as all future updates will be automatically downloaded and installed. Windows Store users will get updates via the store as usual.

This is an in-place upgrade - which means that you simply download and run the installer and it will update the application. Your existing settings and data will not be affected in any way. If, for some reason, you do not get an email from us (please check your SPAM folder!), just contact us and we will get you sorted out.
