I create a lot of text files (which I currently manage with UltraEdit) and have been thinking for a while that using a Rich Text app to manage them would have some real benefits.
In addition to UltraEdit, I also own and love both OneNote and EverNote Plus. Perhaps once I understand TextNotes Pro better, I'll realize it doesn't do what I think it does or that it doesn't add meaningful features or benefit to my current software configuration. Any thoughts?
My feeling is that it probably won't do much more than OneNote for you, in terms of features (especially regarding text formating and outlining), etc. to justify using it. Unless you want to create little manuals, books, etc. : it has some nice features to achieve that (but then, other applications can do similar things too). You should maybe know that some here (like Nudone) have found TexNotes to be crash prone, which is NOT good for a text "editor"... I can't
If you'd just prefer many to work with single (RTF or not) files instead of files inside a database, there are other options out there.
One option that some people like (here at DC : J-MAC
) is AM-Notebook
, written by aignes
AM-Notebook uses that file format : http://www.trichview.com/
, and everything can be exported in RTF format.
According to some, AM-Notebook might have problems with Unicode support though… But that might not be a problem for you since you speak English.,.
For notes, you could also use SQLNotes
(code name), which is now available
for a free 50-55 days trial in beta ("renewable" at each new beta installation, if I remember correctly). It’s immensely powerful and does much much more than only note taking… but it could be used just for that
if you wanted. The new Daily Build
, allows for rapid NoteTaking, GTD fashion — but you first need to register at the SQLNotes website (http://www.sqlnotes.net/
) and download the full version (and install it…) before you can extract the daily build and copy it in your SQLNotes program folder…
SQLNotes might well be overwhelming though... I'd first try AM-Notebook.
