1.8.2 Changelog

We have a few of those ‘big-small’ changes in this update, including one new widget size, formatting display improvements in widgets, and some pesky Editor bugs on iOS 14.2.

**NEW LARGE SINGLE-NOTE WIDGET**

Can’t get enough of that one, special note on your Home Screen? Give it the large widget treatment for maximum note space.

**MORE FORMATTING IN WIDGETS**

Paragraphs, todos, and lists, oh my! They all now render properly in widgets so you can review, plan, and todo your way through the day.

**UNWANTED INDENTS, BE GONE**

We fixed a few Editor bugs on iOS 14.2, especially the odd indenting behavior some users experienced.
