FS • VoodooPad: New in 3.0
Make sure to check out the new wiki located at This one will eventually be retired.

New in VoodooPad 3.0:

Open up multiple pages in the same window using tabs. Command click on a link to open it in a new tab, or right click on a link and choose "Open Link in New Tab". (And you can still open up pages in new windows by holding down shift-command when clicking on a link)

Search Improvements
Search in VoodooPad is lightning fast now, and returns results in record times.

Support for big documents
Stuff gigabytes of data inside a VoodooPad document, it won't mind. A new file format makes saving documents super quick as well.

A user can paste content from any LinkBack-enabled application into VoodooPad and reopen that content later for editing with just a double-click. See for more info.

Embed images, pdfs, and other types of files.
The improved file format for VoodooPad 3.0 means you can embed files such as images, pdfs, mp3s, and most other types of files as well. VoodooPad also includes a new PDF Service so you can print from any application directly into VoodooPad.

Full Screen
Edit your pages in full screen mode, to keep you focused on the task at hand.

Script Plugins
Script Plugins are an easy way to extend the functionality of VoodooPad. Download new plugins or write your own.

VoodooPad sheds the drawer and moves content out into easy to use palettes. Find your backlinks, pages list, categories, recently updated pages, and (new for 3.0) recently visited pages quick and easily.

Text Styles
A new text styles palette lets you add and apply text styles to your pages.

Custom Shortcuts
VoodooPad has a new preference pane where you can set and change the menu item shortcuts. So if you don't like that a certain plugin has no shortcut- now you've got an easy way to fix it!

Merge and Split
Merge two VoodooPad documents together using the import menu option, or split pages from a document into a new file to slim things down a bit.
