Hidden Preferences in MacJournal

MacJournal has a few hidden options that you can use. These are things that don’t fit into the overall design of the app, but might be useful for a limited few. There also could be new options that will be public later but are hidden for now on a trial basis. Follow these steps to show the Hidden Preferences pane in MacJournal.

Keep in mind that one of the reasons that these are not accessible by default is that I’m not guaranteeing that these will work after this version. Some of them (like the date format specifiers) will hopefully make it into UI in the future. Others are conveniences for this version and might be removed in the future if they conflict with something else.
