    Hi, I'm evaluating Ulysses and feel that it's nearly exactly what I want. However, I have three questions:

    1. Is it possible to set bottom margin in console mode? I found that the typewriter scrolling keeps text too high above the bottom of the screen while a normal scrolling makes it too low.

    2. Is it possible to use a block cursor (non blinking) in console mode? I googled and found one blog post mentioned this[1]. But I cant figure out how to turn it on. I'm using Ulysses 2.0.4.

    3. I use git to version control my writings. Because I only want to track the plain text part of a Ulysses project, I dig into a Ulysses project bundle. There are pairs of sub directories that look identical (? and o?, where ? is 1-9). Which one should I track?

    Hello larme, thank you for evaluating Ulysses!

    1. It's currently not possible, but we'll think about it.

    2. We had a block cursor in one of the betas, but it turned out it still needed some improvements. It will be back in one of the next versions.

    3. The o? directories are the currently open Documents, the others are the current Documents. As stated in the manual, the contents of an open Document may differ from the corresponding Document until you explicitly save the open Document - so the o? directory contains what you've written since your last save, but it will be deleted when you close the Document. I think it would be best to track both kinds of sub directories so you have both all your saved Documents and the most recent changes.

    Great! I hope the file structure of Ulysses bundle won't change a lot because it really works well with git. I can just create a git repository inside a ulysses bundle, add the following lines in .gitignore:


    And then git will ignore all files except the txt file in 1, 2, ... (for my purpose there's no need to track o? directories). In addition when I move a ulysses file, the repository will move along the file.

    Hope the first two points can be addressed in future release. I'm quite excited about Ulysses. I think I will definitely purchase a license after the trial period.
