Yes, I ran into the same lack of quick response on a request about:
System Icon Database not found
Custom Icon Database not found
on loadup. And I mentioned to Rael some of the customization questions (enhancement requests). However, none of this is critical, to be fair, all very minor. Also sometimes responses get lost in the aether.
Maybe we should set up a RightNote discussion thread here ? Is that "normative" ?
The program is very quite nice to use, I hope to do a bit of comparison in the weeks ahead (MyBase, Treepad, etc.) Maybe Rael will join us if he sees the tone is supportive and helpful, and then maybe move to a wider venue too.
The reason the RightNote system is not exactly the most full X-Y possibility is that you could have Tabs on the left as well. Then you would have three major groups, like this:
Tabs on left --
Major totally independent categories - e.g Puter, Spirit, Special_Project, PIM
(this in many systems would be separate disk files)
Lets take PIM as an example, although Puter might be better. Remember, we are using RightNote as a general note holder, we might xfer notes later to more structured programs like a Rainlendar for Calendar or Swift for To-Do or Listpro or Essential PIM for this and that. Or our programming expertise in Alpha 5, etc. However notes always have a nice free-form color-code master "think about this" aspect that is special, that is why we like "notes". You can easily set up a note for thinking about the notes !
Then on the top you might have "sub-categories"
PIM -- Calendar, Addy, ToDo, PIM-Software, My Finance Info, Groupons, etc.
Then you use the Tree as a structure.
Say within Calendar, you might have pages (optionally using subfolders) with Webinar, Daily, Special Dates, City events, etc.
This might not be the best example, because you might feel that you should one-step calendar directly to your calendar program. Yet remember, even that program choice could change, the good thing about a master "Note" program is that it always flexible, you can always color code and high-light, and you can search-find quickly. Also you are in and out quickly, adding or modifying. And with 2 structure levels (Rightnote) or even better .. 3, you can be comfy in design. Granted an explorer tree has multi-level capabilities, but getting too fancy there (3-4 levels) is not something that you would likely do in notes.
btw, that feature of different types of notes in the Tree in RightNote does have the potential for a being a major help. Swift To-Do does something similar and I found it very nice. Keep us informed of what you find. What is a memo note ?
