Pleeeease... let the user choose between html and plain/text formatted notes.
It is very annoying to always do <pre> text </pre> :(
I may be misunderstanding your plea, but in 090RC1, Alt-R = Rich text, Alt-P = Plain text. You can change your default font in Tools, Preferences if you require.
Hello Ken, unfortunately, that does not do for Bastian, as he is referring to notes, not to nodes. While it is possible in FreeMind 0.9.0 RC1 to have either plain text or rich text in nodes, there is no such option for notes, which are always in rich text. By notes I mean the text that is shown in a separate pane at the bottom of FreeMind screen.
