Scripts and Plugins Wishlist

  • Alow pasting of pictures into WikidPad (on paste action - picture in clipboard should be saved under random name in 'storage' folder, and then link to it should be inserted at current cursor location) [ this is very useful for screenshot pastes ] <- NOTE: made (somewhat) possible in latest 1.9 Beta versions...
  • Do not autolink WikiWords (i.e. option to use [forced links] only) <- NOTE: Made possible by setting 'camelCaseWordsEnabled: false' attribute...
