v0.5.0 150 150 Bonsai Writer

🌟 New Features


One of the most wanted features has now been implemented: With the new version 0.5.0 you can add pictures to your Bonsai Writer documents.

You can use the structure menu in the menu bar or the context menu in the main text area. Or you can copy an image from another program and paste it into your document using the clipboard.

Pictures can be labelled with a title. To do this you use the Metadata view.

JPEGs often contain rotation information, which Bonsai Writer evaluates correctly so that the sky in your photos is at the top and the sea at the bottom.

Currently, the image formats PNG, JPEG, GIF and BMP are supported. Even animated images can be inserted as PNG or GIF. But beware! We haven’t added a way to stop them yet! 🤪😱🤯
