I like CintaNotes and have been using it for a couple of years already, from version 1.0 and ever earlier, from a beta M10. At early stages there were a single instance of CN and a single notes database associated with CN by cintanotes.settings. It was very inconvenient to manually edit cintanotes.settings to open other database file and I was extremely happy one day to see File -> Open menu in the program. But why don't do a small step further and don't just allow file association with CN in Windows Explorer? Just double-click on a database file and open it with CN, as Notepad do? Why don't implement a file name as a command line option? And even more, why don't just drop a file from Explorer on to CN panel to open it? All that is standard Windows functionalities and couldn't be too hard to implement... Anyway, thank you for a good program!

Hi sstetsen,
thanks a lot for your suggestions, I think they make a lot of sense.
I've added them to the roadmap:
Associate .db files with CintaNotes
Command line parameter to open a .db file
Drag-and-dropping .db files onto CN window should open them

Please vote! thanks
