Hi there Coders,

We are offering a 50% off discount sale on new licenses, until the end of May.

RightNote is an advanced information manager for Windows that will help you store and organize large amounts of information, and keep all your personal information at your fingertips.

The webpage bookmark, clipper and full webpage download functions make it great for web research and keeping track of large number of links.

It includes a source code note type for source code snippets, supporting over 50 programming languages and also various light and dark themes...

More info here:

Regards
Rael Bauer

I have a registered 3.6.1.0 but the 12 months of upgrades began in 02-2017.

And I have some writing projects coming up, A research book on how Codex Sinaiticus is only 180 years old, not 1670, and some others.
And I think the choice comes down to Rightnote, Scrivener, or both. (Comments from others?)

Any discounts on an upgrade?

Which is cheaper the upgrade, or the new version at 50%?

Thanks!

Steven

They are very different programs, with different features.
If you already use Rightnote, you will know what it can do and how much of your writing you can do using it. If that's enough I would go with that. And if you like it sufficiently, then you might like a Lifetime Pro licence with the 50% discount to save you being in this position again.

And if you find it isn't sufficient to take you right through the process, then you can consider Scrivener (or other programs). You will then know exactly what it is that you need them to do. And Scrivener's v3 might be complete.

Alternatively, if you know you need the corkboard, then you won't find an equivalent in Rightnote and Scrivener (or alternative) is the way to go. But you would know that already.

Really, I have not used Scrivener.  Although I have a copy.  I'll know better when I give it a real go.

For the actual documents, so far I use mostly Atlantis, but if RightNote works nicely, it might be better on a project with form, because it supplies the tabs and hierarchy. 

I always like RightNote, but I just never quite get around to using it. However it might be rather good for a small book-writing project.

Looks good.

Working with that, I decided to make myself a LinoIt page.

Writer's Tools
http://linoit.com/us...vases/Writer%20Tools

The page moves up and down - dragged - to see more.

I have it set for now that only I can change or adjust boxes.
If I start getting the page too full, I break it up to two different urls with simple toggle-url capability.

Would there be a way to mold a Rightnote into a contact manger with call-note log.

Clearly the table-spreadsheet function could be used as a contact manager, but to have a call-note log you have to relate a contact to their events.

Is there a way to get this from the Rightnote functionality?

Can't you do this using links?

Link note:
Create a link to any file for quick access to that file

That is referring to external files.

You would have to have a way to create a contact note structure.
And an event or call log structure.

Within Rightnote.
And link the two together.

Airtable does this easily with its online database/spreadsheet metaphor, so that is my current try (2500 records free.)

With Windows programs, of course the Filemaker and Alpha 5 type of program does this.  Maybe GS-Base on the simpler end, I have not tried its internal linking yet.  It does do well with an extended/large note fields within the single database.

I don't know if any of the RightNote, Mybase types of programs can do this.

Says it does this:-
Create links to other notes (Richview and spreadsheet notes)
Standard version
