Greetings everyone! While we primarily work on the upcoming Pagico 10 to prepare for its official release in October, we are also working to bring some of the key changes from v10 to v9 to ensure our v9 customers have the best user experience possible.
Improved Data Sync Efficiency and Reliability
Today we just released Pagico 9.10 r20210906, which addresses several under-the-hood issues to improve the overall data sync efficiency and reliability.
More specifically, you should see fewer data sync cycles to get your data across your devices.
Improved Update Checking Mechanism
In this version the automatic update checker is also improved in several ways. Most notably, when v10 arrives, the v9 will correctly present the v10 notification as either a free update or a paid upgrade, depending on your service plan status.
Improved the way cleanly deleted items are handled in data sync
Fixed an issue where certain data objects were not included in data sync in certain cases
Fixed an issue where previously excluded files were not re-included as expected
Optimized the way data sync cycles are kicked off and eliminated unnecessary cycles
Fixed an issue where the update checker may not present the correct download links for users on macOS and 64-bit Windows systems
Improved the update checker to take service plan status into consideration
Re-enabled update checker for Mac users (previously only the in-app updater was used for update checking purposes)
To clarify, all v9 users with an active service plan as of October 1, 2021, will get Pagico 10 for free. If you own a Pagico license and do not have an active service plan, then upgrading to v10 would require a service plan, such as the Personal Premium plan.

After months of intense design and development, we are finally getting close to the official release of Pagico 10! Due to the vast amount of changes involved in Pagico 10, a public beta program is needed to ensure that the software performs as expected out in the real world.
The Pagico 10 Beta
Today we are excited to announce that the Pagico 10 Beta program will start on Monday, August 23 2021. If you are interested in testing early build software and are willing to provide feedback to us, please sign up for the beta program below.
Update on August 23: The beta program has started. If you have enrolled into the beta program, please check your inbox. New beta builds will be released on a weekly basis.
Pagico 10 is designed to further enhance the ways it helps people to get work done, by simplifying, redesigning and optimizing the overall package. Version 10 packs a large number of new features and improved capabilities, and here are some of its highlights:
Greatly Improved Performance
If you have large amounts of data in Pagico 9, then you may notice that some times it takes a little time for everything to be loaded. This includes the project / contact listings, as well as large projects and/or contacts. Pagico 10 addresses this issue effectively with a complete rebuild of the rendering engine. In version 10, everything loads almost instantaneously. This extra “snappiness” makes the entire system more fluid and comfortable to use than ever.
A brand new tabs design lets you see all your recently accessed containers as well as their color-codings with a glance and grants you instant access with a single click. Want to re-arrange your tabs? Just drag-and-drop to reorder. Best of all, the tabs and their arrangements are remembered between sessions, so you can launch Pagico and get back to where you were right away.
Better List Writing Experience
Multi-select, bulk indent/outdent/delete/check/uncheck, keyboard navigation, and a lot more! List items are so much easier to interact with if you are a keyboard-oriented user. They edit like text lists, where you can just use your arrow keys to traverse from one item to the next. The editing and saving are much faster as well, thanks to the overall performance optimization.
If you need to manage repeating projects that share similar structures, then you’re definitely going to love the brand-new Templates feature. You can easily create and customize container templates and clone new ones with ease.
Templates are really flexible, too. They can be private (your personal access only), or can be shared with teams so everyone can spawn new templated projects with ease. When Pagico 10 launches, we will also offer a collection of pre-built common templates to give users a jump start.
Redesigned User Interface
The UI also receives a refresh in version 10! We are continuing our minimalist approach with the UI design, to give everyone a modern, elegant and customizable working environment. Fun fact: by simplifying the UI, we also improved the rendering efficiency as well. So the updated UI also brings performance gains.
And much more!
We are only scratching the surface here. Pagico 10 packs a lot more improvements to make your work more smooth and efficient than ever. We’ll share more details with you all in the coming weeks.
Pricing & Availability
If you are not interested in trying early software releases, that’s no problem! Pagico version 10 is scheduled to officially release on Friday, October 1, 2021.
For all users with an active Personal Premium service plan, the upgrade to v10 is FREE. If you do not have the Personal Premium service plan and own a Pagico license, you can purchase the Personal Premium service plan at $24/year USD (you can cancel any time). For new users, Pagico 10 retails at the same cost as before: $50 USD.
If you are upgrading from an older Pagico license, or purchasing a new Pagico license, you will also gain free software updates and upgraded Personal Cloud for 12 months. After the 1-year period, if you decide not to renew the Personal Premium service plan, you will get downgraded to the free-tier Personal Cloud and will no longer receive software updates. But your license does not expire, and your Pagico will continue to work as expected.
You can purchase a Pagico license, or the Personal Premium service plan at any time here:
The pleasantness of your work environment is critical to your productivity. That’s why we’ve always heavily focused on the UI design of Pagico. Starting with Pagico 9.10 Update 2, you’ll now be able to take the already elegant UI to the next level — make it your own.
Introducing Customizable Color Scheme
Simply pick a color of your choice, and enjoy the various levels of hue throughout Pagico! This color choice option is located in your Preferences section, but please note that only the customizable color choice only applies to the Light UI scheme.
When you can work in an environment that you love, accomplishing more gets a little easier.
Fixed an issue where the placement of task bars on timelines may be off in certain situations
Improved data sync reliability when sharing new projects to teams
Minor UI adjustments
This feature is already available in the latest version of Pagico 9.10! Head over to our Downloads section to grab it.
Greetings everyone! Today we are excited to announce the availability of Pagico 9.10 (rev. 20210401). In this newer version we introduced a new way to let you create new folders with ease right inside Pagico. This build also includes some bug fixes to make things work more reliably.
New Feature: Create new folders right inside Pagico
Bug Fix: Fixed an issue where the dollar sign may not show up in notifications in certain cases
Bug Fix: Fixed an issue where extra “+” buttons showed up in file preview panels
Bug Fix: Fixed an issue where some files may be imported to an incorrect path
Bug Fix: Fixed an issue where some times the Tag recognition algorithm may mis-identify non-tag objects
Bug Fix: Fixed an issue where files may not be linked to notes or lists in certain cases
Greetings everyone! Today we are excited to announce the availability of Pagico 9.9, which brings a number of feature improvements and bug fixes.
New: Insert Objects Anywhere
Previously, all new objects are added to the top of your container. But some times you may want to insert objects at arbitrary spots, and Pagico 9.9 lets you do just that! Simply click on the “+” button between any two data objects, and you’re all set!
More Reliable Note Editing
When a text note involves hyperlinks, tags and other interactive elements, some times the saving behaviors were not as reliable. We’ve overhauled this area in Pagico 9.9, making the note saving process much better than before. We’ve also introduced a new “Save & Close” button, so you can explicitly save your changes on-demand (your changes will still be auto-saved periodically).
Fixed an issue where the Copy-To command may still perform the Move-To action in some cases
Fixed an issue where the smart search engine may not return all the matching results in case cases
Introduced a Personal Profile Rebuild feature to correct team member listing issues in Teams
Fixed an issue where the projects and contacts list may not refresh automatically after data sync cycles
Fixed an issue where the editing of sidebar widgets may not trigger data sync cycles
The About panel now shows computer name and ID for easier troubleshooting
Greetings, everyone! Today we are excited to announce the availability of Pagico 9.8 (rev 20210206). This version brings inline thumbnails, team-wide category and bug fixes.
Linked documents will now show up with their thumbnails (if they are available). This way you’ll get a glimpse of the linked items without opening them up.
Team users rejoice! Categories are now synced across teams. Create custom categories (and color choices!) for your teams and take advantage of the color-coding capability with your teammates. When working in a project or a team, Pagico recognizes the context and presents you the appropriate category set so you select the desired categories with ease. You can create new team-specific categories in your Team -> Settings tab.

From Earlier: Tags and Categories View
Also new in Pagico 9.8 (but announced a bit earlier) is the Tags and Categories view that lets you browse and filter your content with ease.
Update: r20210208 build addresses an issue where new tasks couldn’t be created correctly when no categories are present
Fixed an issue where adjusting items from the timeline may not trigger data sync immediately
Fixed an issue a rendering glitch with the category selection in certain scenarios
Improved the reliability and accuracy of the tag scanning algorithm
Other under-the-hood improvements
And: An Apology
Pagico 9.8 release has seen a rocky start, in that we identified a few issues shortly after the initial release of v9.8. Because of that, we tried to address these issues as quickly as possible, and that resulted in a rapid-fire of releases over the span of 3 days. If you’ve been bombarded by the automatic prompt of “update available”, or have been having problems with the auto-updater, we sincerely apologize! Moving forward, we will work hard to iron out issues prior to releases as much as we can, and we’ll limit our release frequency to no more than one per week.
