(This is a slightly edited version of my comment to the Bits du Jour offer.)
RightNote is an excellent note-taking program -- better than roughly a dozen others I have tried over the years. I consider it one of my essential programs, and use it many times every day for both work and personal projects. One of its greatest benefits is easily clipping web pages to become editable notes. That alone is worth the price of the program, and has saved me many hours of manual copying and pasting.
My only disappointment with RN is a number of small but awkward traits which I think would be easy enough for Rael to improve. For example:
- Ctrl+Backspace deletes the previous word (this is expected) but strangely, Ctrl+Del deletes only a single character (it should delete the entire next word).
- Ctrl+Shift+Up/Down.arrow selects text to the previous/next paragraph (this is expected) but strangely, Ctrl+Up/Down.arrow scrolls the page (it should move the cursor to the previous/next paragraph).
- In the find & replace dialog, the "Replace with" field displays the text used in the previous operation, but "Find what" does not (it is always blank).
Quirks such as those (and in other cases, small bugs) make RN feel somewhat rough, and unfortunately Rael has not addressed them months after being notified of them.
