"I've tried the rest, this is the best"
Version: RightNote Portable 2.1.2
So pleased with my trial that I've now paid for a licence.
What to do with pdfs, of which I have many, was no longer a problem after I discovered Free PDF to Word Converter 5.1.
I have created my own to do, contacts and passwords lists with RightNote's tables feature, and while they might not look so slick and professional, it has made me realise just how cluttered the interface of EssentialPIM is, which I was using before. I can't run a working calendar like theirs on RightNote, but I've happily gone back to using UK's Kalendar for that.
When it comes to storing notes, the sky is the limit. As well as having shed loads of Word docs, I had so much stuff in Dropbox just so I could share it between computers, but it was difficult to find things because of Word's insistence on putting first folders and then docs in strict alphabetical order. Now I am transferring everything to RightNote and not only is it all in the order I want it, there is no more clicking on folders looking for something that is in one or the other, because it can all be seen in the tree. There is also a fast and efficient Search feature if needed.
I am happy to put everything I have in Word into RightNote because it retains the formatting, it can be printed, and it can quickly be exported back to Word if needed.
While RightNote is slightly slow to open initially, once it is minimised to the tray it opens instantly, while switching from one note to another is instant too. No more twiddling your thumbs while waiting for Word's painfully slow opening of each doc!
The best bit is that I am successfully running the portable version in Dropbox, which means I can access my data on RightNote from either my laptop or desktop pc, though it won't sync if you have them both open at once, you need to be aware of the way Dropbox updates.
Cynics will no doubt think this is just an advert, but I'd like to assure you I am just an ordinary home pc user and I have no connection whatsoever with the developer, to whom my thanks go for a great piece os software.
