Thanks for your time and thought in developing CintaNotes. This could be the best thing going!
Three requests, all discussed before, but crucial
if CintaNotes is to become widely used and usable by most people. I'm assuming that's your goal: creating THE Great Note App.
Of course you must balance features vs bloat and complexity.1.) Edit Box text size option.
Edit box text is way too small for many with vision problems. Increasing the Message Box text size in Windows XP Display Properties Advanced Apperance dialog has no effect. 2.) Why not just eliminate the Edit Box and type notes directly in note body area?
This shaves my three requests down to two.3.) URLs visible and clickable in note body
Clearly visible, meaning blue or colored. If CintaNotes users save their web bookmarks, then the URLs must show up in the notes, since not all notes will have URLs.
FYI like so many, I take extensive notes both on and offline; notetaking has been a large part of my PC experience, so I know what is needed and what works.
I've never much used browser bookmarks for obvious reasons. Way back in Windows 3.11 I used a note app similar in ways to CintaNotes (name forgotten). It was my number one most useful "use-every-day" program.
I own EverNotes. Loved the idea at first, but I never use it... maybe because it's too bloated, complicated, cumbersome, etc.
What do I use right now? After many years of trying various bookmark and note schemes?Metapad! http://liquidninja.com/metapad/
Not being developed, w/ only one minor change since 2002.
Why do I use Metapad? It offers "transparent"
convenience and ease of use, with a useful set of "Preference" options, making a simple editor the best note taker ever. From what I see, CintaNotes would be even more useful than MetaPad if you make the changes requested above.
Since I actually only made two requests above, here's a third.3.) Option to open (switch between) several "Favorite" notebook.dat files.
Make it a main menu item and let people name the files whatever they want to in the list, regardless of the file's actual name. If you've never examined Metapad, please check it out, like I said, it's no longer under development and includes many useful features, all in a 96Kb footprint!
