I know this exists. I installed it once, but cannot find it anymore.
Does anyone know of a a light notetaker/word processor that autohides to the side of the screen? It pops up if the mouse reaches the area where it hides.

It's not quicknote. It has rtf support, and it had something like 10 tabs at the bottom for quick notes. Not Jarte, polyedit, etc either.

Thanks

I have NotesHolder by A!K Research Labs installed, as suggested in another thread on DC

It was not notesHolder. This one supported rtf (bold, etc). I think I found it looking for alternatives to Jarte.

Just possibly minipad2?  Web site is Chinese, program is in English.  But it doesn't quite fit...  not sure it does RTF, for example.  Interesting-looking thing, and improved since I last looked.

It was actually Word 365 beta with a scripted browser plugin - he just doesn't want to let on... :P

(Sorry, don't have any ideas on anything that matches that description, just couldn't let it pass by though).

or maybe Stick?

Stick is a Windows application (Windows XP/Vista/Windows7 only) which offers utilities such as folder explorers, web browsers and notepads in tabs that attach to the sides of your screen (called ScreenTabs). ScreenTabs are super customizable tab-shaped windows that let you access the aforementioned utilities quickly and easily.

It's not this one either (no rtf) but it's neat and rapid.

Thinking this auto hide feature could be useful with a long list of programs I thought I'd just check if there was an autohotkey solution, and there is: http://www.autohotke...orum/topic56326.html

Not tried it yet though. (Will probably use it with Notepad++.)
