It’s time to have a closer look at Ulysses for iPad’s capabilities regarding organization and management. Our start: the three-pane layout, the different views and the navigation between them.
The three-pane layout was adapted from the Mac: Sidebar for groups and filters, sheet list for sheets, and, of course: the editor. When the sidebar and/or the sheet list are displayed, only a part of the editor is visible.
Writing, and this is different from the Mac version, only works when the other panes are hidden. Tap into your text to start – this will open the virtual keyboard with Ulysses’ button row and automatically hide the navigation bar.
Navigation between the different views is easy: Just swipe left to right to change from editor only to two pane view, swipe another time for three pane view, and vice versa to get back. You can also tap in the panes to switch focus, or use the navigation bar.
