Would this forum also be the right place to report bugs on iOS, or request features ? I have seen such notes here, but they seem to receive less attention. Is this because the app developer is less active on this forum ?
Developer/s is active both here and on Github.
Request features should go here and bugs to Github page (https://github.com/laurent22/joplin/issues)
You might look into plugins to see if your feature can be done with them.
