IDEA: Always Visible Sidebar Notes
« on: November 11, 2013, 05:22:12 PM »
There should be a simple sidebar which is always visible (like Vista Sidebar where maximized windows dont overlap it) and it should have editable text area to note down anything. For 1080p screen an always visible sidebar is great.

Rainmeter might do this.
Have a look at this and following posts, might give you some other ideas too.

There was mfNotePad which did this well but the dev seems to have disappeared, however you might be able to find it somewhere.
.: I use K-Meleon - the browser you can control - but I love Pale Moon too :.

I have found this www.codeproject.com/Articles/3728/C-does-Shell-Part-3 and modified it. Added an always saved text area and browser (to keep open workflowy). Now it is always on right of my screen and allows me to add any thoughts instantly. I am a rainmeter user and it can not do this.

Added an always saved text area

I'm curious (and not a coder, so dont understand much there anyway).
Wondering if the "always saved text area" is a separate app that you have integrated, or is it part of all that code?

Bad english perhaps. I mean that anything that I write in that text box is saved with each key press in a text file. Also the workflowy webview above can be used to keep important notes synced.
