Can't comment on incollector, which I no longer have any recollection.

This looks interesting, in pure note taking terms I am happy with CintaNotes but will try this as well

Or just use Scrapbook or Qeepit works like a cardfile system.

EDIT: removed links to questionable sites - app103

This is only a nice start

-It does not support drag and drop from other applications
-It looks like "enter" does not make linebreak
-No way to use tab for indenting
-No image support

kartal, you're impatient, aren't you?

-No image support

In fact there is, just not by copy-pasting yet. Inserting image file does work, though.

In fact it does. Every cell is a line, and hitting [Enter] does end it. Try hitting [Enter], then start typing again, and you'll see.

Try [Ins] (to add a sub-grid), for in TreeSheet, an indented paragraph is like a sub-grid.

I did say its approach is unorthodox, didn't I? You really have to follow through the sample file (tutorial.cts) to know what it's doing, which took me 10-20 min., top. I've never seen an application with so unfamiliar an UI that I could learn in such short time, and got me hooked so quickly.

I have my editor (EmEditor) in the system tray all the time, so I could quickly open it and dump any random bits in it. Now, while EmEditor is still faithfully there, I find myself reaching for TreeSheet more and more often.

Now things would probably be different if I have a favorite power note taker. I'm still evaluating Rightnote, InfoQube, myBase, and MyInfo, but can't decide on one yet, since each has obvious flaws for my purpose.

Paul Keith:
Nice! I was looking for something like this for a long time.

Hopefully this could substitute the idea of IGoogle/Netvibes Sticky Notes in an offline format.
