A powerful tree-type notebook with richtext editor and strong encryption
Pros & Cons:
KeyNote NF (New Features) is a freeware program with a dedicated band of followers. While most software designers like to use the term user friendly, in this case it really applies. This is one of the few software programs that you can install and start using right away.
The application is a powerful outliner and information manager with a richtext editor supporting multi-level notes and an option for saving files with strong encryption. It allows you to mix freely all notes of different types including text, objects and images in a single file. Upon testing, I was able to add images in bmp and gif formats but jpg format was surprisingly not supported.
It also offers tabbed interface, WordWeb integration, per-file configurations and multiple backups. It is very useful to everyone for keeping all random pieces of information in a tree-like structure and that do not fit easily into task-specific applications such as word-processors, databases or spreadsheets.
KeyNote NF was originated from Marek Jedlinski's KeyNote and redeveloped by Daniel Prado with more functionalities, which include checkboxes on children of selected nodes, hidden notes, alarms on nodes, multi-language support, Unicode compliance and some other improvements.
