A free note-taking, document file and activity manager for GNU/Linux.
Notes are gathered under different subjects and are made by a title, a date, a tags (keywords) list and a free-length text. This may be formatted: it is possible to change the font name, size and color of a selected text and of its background, and also to set bold, italic, underline and strike-through; the text may have pictures within it. The software can manage paragraph alignment, bullets, numbered and alphabetic lists with automatic indentation. Each note may have any number of attachments (files of every kind), and has also a spreadsheet-like grid to manage a list of activities which is quite similar to the one used in many software of project management. The various activities of one or all the notes of a file may be shown in a diary view and possibly exported in iCal format. A single file of MyNotex contains various notes filed under different subjects.
MyNotex sits on your desktop, and not on the cloud somewhere. You control your files and backups. The notes in MyNotex are arranged in subjects. Think of subjects as notebooks and notes as, well - notes. There is no known limit to how many subjects or notes you can create in a single MyNotex document.
This is probably the only manual you'll ever need to read. In fact, go ahead and skip the rest if you want to - because with MyNotex, you'll hit the ground running. The User Interface is straight-forward, and the dual pane makes organization of content extremely easy.
Notes can be dated and tagged - making search and retrieval, a snap. MyNotex searches across a wide variety of parameters, helping you to organize your notes even if they number in the thousands.
You can attach virtually any type of file to a note in MyNotex. Think of the possibilities. With MyNotex you can centrally maintain all your project documents, spreadsheets, presentations, mind-maps - basically any type of file in one centralized location.
Each note comes with it's own Activity-Manager. To those familiar with project management software, this is a spreadsheet-like grid which allows you to create and manage list of activities and sub-activities with project-status, critical-dates, resources and cost specifications.
If security is important to you, MyNotex allows encryption and decryption of notes with AES algorithm or of files, with GNU Privacy Guard (GPG), if available in the system.
MyNotex allows you to export any note as a Open Office or Libre Office document. You can also import content directly from such documents as well.
