Introduction to KeyNote

Keynote is a flexible, multi-featured tabbed notebook, based on Windows standard RichEdit control. It's always accessible with a single keypress, even if you work in another application. Take a look at the screenshots page.
This is what KeyNote's main window typically looks like. Note that you can have many simple or tree-type notes, and they can be mixed freely. Each you see is a separate RTF note, but they are all contained within one KeyNote file.

Here is a 'simple" note, a note without the tree panel.

The new Tree-type notes are equipped with a powerful set of tree-related commands. All commands are accessible from the main menu, as well as from the right-click context menu, shown here.

In version 1.2, Resource panel was added. It provides quick access to templates, macros and plugins, contains an RTF scratchpad, and a "Find" tab, which you can use to search for text and display a list of matches.

File manager window remembers the KeyNote files you have been using and displays a list of them for quick selection. Note file information displayed at the bottom for each file.

For each note within a file you can specify several properties, such as name, icon image and editor font. You can also preset global defaults for all new notes created.

The program is very configurable. This is the main configuration screen.

You can send your notes via email directly from the program! You can send a selected note or all notes in the file.
