Editors' Review

+

We've reviewed a lot of note-taking software in our day, but we're not sure we've encountered anything that quite compares to RightNote. This comprehensive organizer lets you store anything from phone numbers to spreadsheets, source code to short stories. It might take you a little while to get acquainted with everything that it does, but it's time well spent for a program that's this jam-packed with features.

The program's interface is basic and easy to navigate, with menus across the top and a tree hierarchy in a pane down the left side. Anyone who's used a word processor should be able to understand its basic features, since the program is similar in appearance. The program refers to each RightNote file as a notebook, and each notebook's pages are arranged in the tree hierarchy; you can easily add sibling and child notes as well as edit note properties using buttons located at the top of the pane. There are five different formats for notes: Memo, RichEdit, RichView, Source Code, and Spreadsheet. Yes, you read that right: you can create fully functional spreadsheets within the program. You can also attach files or link to them elsewhere.

The program comes with a helpful User Guide that highlights its main features, and a more comprehensive Help file provides more guidance. For most people, though, learning to use RightNote will simply be a process of wandering around and happily discovering the many things it's capable of. Whether you're keeping track of great ideas, organizing a recipe collection, outlining a novel, or just ensuring that your paper sticky notes have a virtual backup, RightNote is an outstanding option for organizing and saving data of all sorts.

RightNote has a 30-day trial period. The program installs politely but leaves a folder behind upon removal.

Editors' note: This is a review of the full version of RightNote 2.5. The trial version is limited to 30 days.

    "Flexible, intuitive, and fast"

    February 19, 2014   |   By lmederos

    Version: RightNote 3.0.3

    Pros

    I have tried probably every information organizer made for Windows. Although products like OneNote are powerful, its free-style actually made it difficult to use for me. I prefer a hierarchical approach but with flexibility (e.g., multipage, multilevel).

    This one fits the bill.

    Cons

    The only 2 snags I have run into are:

    1. Although it will export to multiple formats, it is hard to figure out how/if it can export outlines in indented format. For example, if you have header levels and text underneath, I would like to see:

    Header1
    Text1
    Header2
    Text2
    Header3
    Text3

    As of today, I think I can make it work but it requires extensive paragraph formatting in your notes.

    2. I would like to have toolbars for features show in the editor (e.g., paragraph styles with dropdowns), but so far have not found out how.

    Summary

    The multiple license levels gave me a choice to buy the standard level without paying for features I did not need.

    Highly recommended.

    Updated on Feb 19, 2014

    The formatting for Con#1 did not show up as I had intended. Header 2 should be indented from Header 1, with Text 2 at same level as Header 2. Header 3 should be indented from Header 2, with Text 3 at same level as Header 3.
