This is a minor update that adds support for the Touch Bar, improves support for document tabs on macOS Sierra, and fixes a few small issues.

To update: just replace the current application after you download the latest version.


  • Added support for the Touch Bar as found on some new MacBook models.
  • Improved support for tabbed documents on macOS 10.12 Sierra:
    • All tab menu commands should also appear on the View menu.
    • Added a New Tab command that always opens a blank document in a new tab.
    • Added a menu option that controls whether or not documents are opened in tabs.
    • If documents are reopened at launch, tabs should be maintained.
  • Fixed: sometimes autosaved Untitled files were not automatically cleared away after the user explicitly saved the document.
  • Fixed: tables: sometimes scrolling a selection inside a table into view would scroll too far.
  • Fixed: tracked changes: possible hang when showing the Review Changes pane, if certain types of changes overlap.
  • Fixed: some esoteric bugs related to TOC and indexing.
  • Fixed: a few crash and hang bugs related to the Touch Bar.
