Upgrade to NoteTab 7

A rare upgrade of NoteTab Pro and NoteTab Lite, to version 7.  Pricing:
Quote
Upgrade to NoteTab 7
Get a free upgrade to version 7 if you bought NoteTab in 2012. Or a 50% discount if you bought NoteTab earlier.

Free Upgrade

If you bought NoteTab Pro or Std v6.2 any time in 2012 you can upgrade to NoteTab 7 for free.

50% Discount

If you already bought NoteTab Pro or Std, but before 2012, then you can upgrade to NoteTab 7 for half price.

Just go to Help > Check for Updates (available since v4.95) and click on the upgrade link. If you don’t see the link, click on the “Get headlines” button to refresh the list.

If you don’t have a copy of NoteTab or your version is older than 4.95, use the form on the left to submit your order details. You’ll then get an order link with a huge 50% upgrade discount.

From Version History:
Quote
Version 7.0

    * Under Windows 32-bit with the /3GB option and Windows x64, NoteTab can now allocate resources past the 2GB address limit when needed (up to 4 GB).
    * NoteTab Pro: Added syntax highlighting for CSS files and improved HTML syntax highlighting with documents that contain PHP, ASP, and Javascript code.
    * Improved the Strip HTML Tags feature with better handling of documents that contain PHP, ASP, and Javascript code.
    * Added real-time word count feature, with a choice between two counting methods. The feature is controlled through the View | Word Count submenu and the word count is displayed in the status bar next to the Ins/Ovr info panel. Word-count is based either on selected text or the whole document (or topic with Outlines). This feature is not available in NoteTab Light (unless you enable trial mode).

      The MS Word method returns a count that should be a close match to the word-count result in Microsoft Word. The NoteTab method is more sophisticated and counts words using a more extensive set of word delimiters. MS Word mostly counts words delimited by space characters. In the following examples, MS Word counts one word per line whereas NoteTab counts three words in each:
          * info@fookes.com
          * http://fookes.com/
          * help-me-please
          * 2x10x250
    * When the real-time word-count feature is enabled, you can click on the corresponding panel in the status bar to see more detailed text statistics. This information is also displayed after you select a certain amount of text. You will see the word count based on the NoteTab method, the average number of characters per word, the number of sentences, and the average number of words per sentence. This information is particularly valuable to copywriters, bloggers and journalists.
    * In NoteTab Pro and Std, the Tools | Text Statistics feature is now based on the new NoteTab word-count method.
    * When the Text Statistics feature is used on an HTML file, NoteTab only counts visible page text (tags, CSS, scripts and commented blocks are ignored). Hold down the Shift key when selecting this menu command if you want to also count words in HTML tags and comments.
    * Simply select one character in the current document to see its decimal and hexadecimal value in the status bar.
    * New keyboard shortcuts to easily insert typographic characters:
          * Ctrl+. inserts the ellipsis character …
          * Ctrl+- inserts the n-dash character –
          * Ctrl+, inserts “smart quotes” around selected text or a proper apostrophe ’
    * You can now remove history items from drop-down lists in the Find and Replace dialog boxes. To remove an undesired item from the history list, first select it, close the drop-down list and then press the Shift + Delete keys. Or right-click in the field to open the popup menu and choose Delete from List; you can also delete the whole history by choosing Clear History.
    * The Find and Replace dialog boxes now show search results in a balloon (unless you are using Blind-User mode) instead of a message box. This speeds up you work as you no longer need to click on the message box OK button to close it.
    * Added support for wildcard searching in find/replace tools. This feature is not available in NoteTab Light (unless you enable trial mode).

      The following tokens are provided:
           * = matches 0 or more word characters. Example: “jo*” matches “JO”, “John”, “Jody”, “joint”, “join_leave”.
           # = matches 0 or more word characters, including HTML entity characters. Example: “na#” matches “naïve”, “naïve”, and “naïve”.
           ** = matches 0 or more characters and can span across words within a line. Example: “click**link” matches “click link”, “click on link”, “clicking on link”, “Click on this link”, but not “click on links”.
           ? = matches exactly one word character. Example: “jo?” matches “Job” and “jot”, but not “JO”, “John”, “Jody”, and “joint”.
           ~ = matches 0 or one word characters. Example: “jo~” matches “JO”, “Job”, and “jot”, but not “John”, “Jody”, and “joint”.
           & = matches exactly one word character or one HTML entity. Example: “caf&” matches “café”, “café”, and “café”.
           Word characters include alphanumeric characters, all extended ANSI characters, as well as “_”.

      To search with wildcard tokens, select the Wildcards option in the Search drop-down list. Choose Standard for literal searching and Regular Exp. for searching with regular expressions.
    * Find and Replace dialog boxes: you can use keyboard shortcuts to change option in the Search drop-down lists. Simply press CTRL+ALT+{first letter of option name}. Example: CTRL+ALT+A sets the All option and CTRL+ALT+W sets the Wildcards option.
    * Added new Bootstrap library, Clipbar and templates. Bootstrap, from Twitter, is a fantastic collection of CSS and HTML for rapidly developing professional-looking web sites. For more information, visit the official Bootstrap website through this link: http://www.notetab.com/redir/Bootstrap
    * Added new HTML-CSS and HTML-AutoReplace libraries and Clipbar, which include support for HTML5 and CSS3. They replace the following outdated files (note that these are not uninstalled by NoteTab):
           HTML.clb
           HTML-ar.clb
           CSS1.clb
           HTML-1.ctb
           HTML-2.ctb
           CSS1.ctb
    * Added two new web page templates (Web page.tpl and Web page HTML5.tpl) to replace the following outdated files (note that these are not uninstalled by NoteTab):
           HTML.tpl
           CSS1.tpl
    * Updated the regular expressions engine to the latest release, which is based on PCRE 8.31.
    * A confirmation dialog box is now displayed when the Close All menu command is used.
    * You can now use CTRL+ALT+V to paste Clipboard data in HTML format (if available).
    * The Search Disk.fvr Favorites file created after a Search Disk operation now removes the maximum limit of 65 files.
    * Added new program icon and splash screen. Note that you can still revert back to the old icon through the Options dialog box.
    * Program file is now code signed to reduce the risk of anti-virus false positives.
    * Fixed printing issue whereby last page or pages failed to print.
    * Fixed issue with Save Directory setting being ignored under the Use Default Directories option.
    * Fixed issue with Disk Files option in Quick List when Show Full Names option is turned off.
    * Fixed issue when pasting text with non-Windows line breaks into NoteTab Pro.
    * Partially fixed issue with disappearing Clip wizard labels under Windows 7 (though the problem does reappear if you hit the Alt key).
    * Fixed issue when comparing negative integer values in Clips.
    * Fixed issue in ^$GetDate(Date Mask;+/-days)$ function when using the +/-days parameter.
    * Fixed issue in ^$GetDateToInt[(Date;DateFilter)]$ function that failed when date filter did not exactly match date pattern. Example: ^$GetDateToInt(2012-3-27;yyyy-m-d)$
    * Fixed issue with ^$GetDocumentPath$ and the %NtbDocuments% token failing to use the user-defined default directories.
    * Fixed errors in the CRC32 algorithm used in the ^$GetCrcFile("Filename")$ and ^$GetCrcText("Text")$ Clip functions.
    * Fixed errors in the Clip Assistant.
    * Fixed issue in the Modify | Block | Cut feature that failed to work if only the last character column was selected.
    * Many other minor improvements and issues fixed.
    * Updated documentation.

Clip-code Additions

    * NoteTab Pro and Std: Added two new Clip functions.
           ^$StrWordCount("Str"[;Method])$
            Method = MsWord or NoteTab
            To count the number of words in a string.
           ^$StrWordList("Str")$
            To extract a word list (with duplicates removed).
    * Updated Clip functions to support regular expressions and wildcards:
           ^$StrCount("SubStr";"Str";Options)$
           ^$StrPos("SubStr";"Str";Options)$
           ^$StrReplace("SubStr";"ReplaceStr";"Str";Options)$


      Options:
           C: Searches for whole words only.
           I: Ignores character case.
           R: Specifies that the search criteria represents a regular expression.
           *: Specifies that the search criteria uses wildcards. In NoteTab Light, this option is only recognized during trial mode.
           A: Use to replace all matched occurrences with ^$StrReplace. When this option is not used, only the first match is replaced.

      Note that the old format for these Clip functions is still valid.
    * The ^!Find and ^!Replace Clip commands also support wildcard searching. Use “*” as an option parameter. The following example searches for words that end in “tab”:
      ^!FIND “*tab” C*
    * Added Clip command to delete the current selection:
      ^!DeleteSelection
    * Added two Clip functions to calculate a hash signature of specified data using the SHA-1 algorithm. SHA-1 was designed by the United States National Security Agency.
           ^$GetSHA1File("Filename")$
            Returns the SHA-1 signature of the specified file. The result is produced in hexadecimal format. Example: ^$GetSHA1File("^$GetAppFileName$")$
           ^$GetSHA1Text("Text")$
            Returns the SHA-1 signature of the specified text. The result is produced in hexadecimal format. Example: ^$GetSHA1Text("^$GetText$")$
    * Added Clips to control which type of data is pasted in a document (plain text or HTML if available):
           ^!SetPasteHtml [TRUE|FALSE]
            When set to True and the Clipboard has data in HTML format, pasting its contents into a document inserts HTML code instead of plain text.
           ^$GetPasteHtml$
            Returns 1 if the Paste Html option is set and 0 if it is not.

NoteTab doesn't get much love in this stronghold of coders, but it's still a good editor if you aren't a coder.

Actually, with its snippet storage and Clip Libraries, it's pretty darn good for coding, too  thumbs up.  Been using it since ~v3.x.  Tried a plethora of editors over the years, but NoteTab is the one (1) I keep coming back to for yeoman duty.

If you aren't a coder,
1. Notepad will work for you,
2. you won't pay money for a text editor.

FWIW, the Neat Net Tricks software review panel reviewed the previous version of NoteTab Pro a few months ago.  Two of the four panelists were very enthusiastic.  All four offer detailed evaluations (see esp. "Good points," "Weak points," and "Comments").  The review is at

Hmm right you are, in IE I get a 20% discount thumbs up.

I think Tuxman has a good point -- if you are not a programmer you are probably unlikely to pay $40 for a text editor, so it makes the most sense to judge them from a programmers perspective.

Well, yeah, that is a point to be considered  undecided.  But it doesn't take into account little things like
  • regex search[ & replace]
  • block edits
  • word count
  • character count
  • thesaurus
  • ... and more.

I had use for all of that long before I started serious coding.  Granted, all that can be done other ways, but it's just so much nicer when it's all in one (1) package  Wink.  It's not just coders that need more capability than Notepad provides  tongue.

I wonder which of these are worth 40$ to pay (instead of donating to N++)?

And more serious question is for Light version: from comparison chart it looks like NoteTab supports HTML5 but without syntax highlighting for HTML…

How does it work? Automatic suggestions without colours? Or maybe newest tags are indicated somehow but only if they are not in HTML4 already (nice <article> ugly <div>)? Wink

 I was all set to reply to Tuxman's and Jibz's assumption that a $40 text editor is likely to be of interest only to programmers, but I see barney has made some of the points that I too would have made.  I'm not a programmer, but I use my text editor (UltraEdit) every day and love the fact that it can handle all the formatting, searching (including using regular expressions), conversion to and from unicode, bookmarking, multiple undo, etc. that I ask of it.  Though I bought my copy of UltraEdit years ago, I'd certainly be willing to pay $40 or more for it if I were buying it today.  It's not just programmers who value and are willing to pay for a capable text editor.

This is the part which makes me wonder: what makes capable text editor?
I am not against paying for good software, I am just asking: what makes NT7 so special to buy it instead of getting some free solution or other payware (let it be UltraEdit, HippoEdit or - heck with that - even Dreamweaver).

I had the exact same question, fenix.  Notetab was the first alternative editor I tried many years ago.  Didn't find much that was so special about it, except for their unique snippet or macro features.  But I can say the same about most of the text editors.  There are so many out there that I don't even want to know their features, I just want to know their unique features.  Like UltraEdit to me is the only one that has a built-in ftp that works smoothly.  Editpad has my favorite interface and searching abilities. hippoEdit has really cool visual stuff going on like color hover effects and nice code-folding and parantheses features.  There's that newer one (I forgot what it's called) where there's a kick-ass document preview portion on the side that I find too cool.

The question for me is always, why would I use one of these instead of the free and extremely capable Notepad++?  If you can answer that, the possibility of the wallet coming out is there.

Notepad++ and RJ Edit are probably enough for 95% of people, including programmers, but of course one may need or like one of the others.

For example (I am not a programmer but I do PHP, HTML and the like) recently Notepad++ has been throwing errors for me. So I use RJ Edit and it's fine and more than enough

The answer to that question, of course, is personal preference.  It's like cars:  do you prefer a Ford or a Chevrolet, an Audi or a BMW?  That's why there is such a plethora of editors available.  It doesn't really matter what your preference might be, what matters is that you have a choice.  cyberdiva likes UltraEdit, that's her preference.  I like PSPad, TreePadX, NoteTab, depending upon what I need to do at the time.  All of these editors have their strengths, things they do better than any other editor.  So, ya pick the one (1) ya like, pay for it if need be, and go on yer merry way  tongue.

That's why I have like 5 that I use!  Each has its own little niche in my computing habits.  If you twisted my arm, what would I choose?  Hmm....probably editpad.

Anyone using version 7 yet?

I've used NoteTab Pro since, I think, Version 4. I love the clipbars; they're what I use most. I'm a little reluctant to upgrade till I know just what Eric added or changed. I also used MailBag Assistant for a long time, along with Aid4Mail, but the last upgrade for MailBag Assistant had no new features added. IIRC, the main change was that he switched Regex engines for searches. I want to make sure that NoteTab 7 has something worth the upgrade price. (To ensure continued development is always a good reason, but I've done that with Fookes Software in the past and I think it's time for him to actually do some more development!)

Thanks!

It likes CSS3, HTML5  Thmbsup.
Added CSS highlighting, maybe better HTML highlighting  Thmbsup.
Search has improved, somewhat  undecided.
Word count is a bit different  undecided.
SEO stuff, but I'm not certain how relevant/important that might be to most  undecided undecided.
New Web templates(?)  undecided.

If your usage is Web stuff, it's prolly a worthwhile upgrade.  For most other stuff, maybe not.  Thass OK, I bought it anyway  tongue.

Thanks barney.

Most of the changes are there for review - I just need to take the time and see if it's worth it to me. I can always keep using NoteTab Pro 6 since it works fine in Windows 7. Sounds like he mainly just tweaked a lot of little things, unless I'm missing something. Doesn’t sound much different than Version 6.

Biggest change Fookes did that pissed me off was no longer allowing you to download the program after your initial download, or after a few days - something like that. Trying to make you purchase the "extended download" bullshit. Cheap move on his part IMO. They have never had downloads generally available - you always got a link to the full version that was active all the time. How much could that have cost him to maintain?

Thanks!

There is an element of that; it certainly doesn't look a revolutionary change.  But there are nice details, e.g.

Use CTRL+ALT+V to paste Clipboard data in HTML format (if available).
As an example, I copied a bit of Barney's post to the clipboard in the usual way, and pasted it into NoteTab Pro 7 with Ctrl+V as usual, getting:

which I thought would be useful for copying things into a plain-text outliner like MemPad, retaining the links.

They have never had downloads generally available - you always got a link to the full version that was active all the time.
I don't like that either, and there's a steady if sluggish stream of worried queries in the Yahoo! Group, what do I do if I lose my original full version.

Hey, thanks for the concept Thmbsup.

Fookes has tried more product delivery methods over the years than I'd care to count  ohmy.  He seems to be one (1) of the oh-so-many developers that fear the world will end if even one (1) product gets distributed w/o remuneration  tongue

He should look at how EditPad Pro (Just Great Software/JGSoft) does it: http://www.editpadpro.com/download.html

You put in the email address the software was registered to and the 'user ID' you get when you buy the software, and the licensed installer (with your license details embedded in it) gets generated and downloaded.

I think I still prefer generic installers that install as a trial until you enter a key. That way, if the vendor goes away due to whatever circumstances, you still have a hope of finding an installer somewhere that'll work.  Admittedly, that's  a pretty rare scenario, so it's not something that keeps me awake at night.  But given a choice...

However, for those times where the vendor wants to provide you with a separate, registered installer that has your info 'burned' into it, the scheme that JGSoft uses is pretty slick.  And they don't charge you again/extra for something you already bought.

I don’t know if you can get another setup file if you lose it and didn't purchase the "extended download" crap! I've been fortunate, which is probably helped by being overly cautious with my setup files. But you know if anything were ever to happen, it'll happen with the one program that won't let you download again!

I have several [very] old programs that I can no longer run just because of that particular method.  I cannot begin to recall the email address I had at the time, nor the user ID  Sad.  It's reasonable scheme, but it has its own downside(s).  Mostly the currency (and I don't mean money) of the product.
