I'm an aspiring author who has been fed up with Microsoft's bloated OneNote for a while now, but I've just tried to ignore my dissatisfaction because I didn't really know what else there was. I wish I'd known sooner. This is SO much better than OneNote. Now, let me be frank in saying that it was a hell of a learning curve. It took hours for me to figure this thing out, but it was so worth it. Not only does WikidPad open faster than OneNote (2 seconds vs. 13 seconds) and navigate faster, but it's set up in such a way that I can do the things I need to do so much faster as well. OneNote couldn't automatically create indexes based on headings. You have no idea how much time I wasted manually creating my own linked indexes to other parts of the same page for my book notes. Right click on header, select copy link to paragraph (an anchor to that header), select the index title at the top of the page, ctrl+k to open hyperlink dialogue, ctrl+v to paste the link from the header. Repeat twenty times per page. WikidPad does it with eight characters. WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU MICROSOFT?! OneNote didn't let me create an autofill dividing line. Instead I had to seek out a special line character and copy paste it. WikidPad just lets me type "----" It just goes on and on. Finding this is the best thing that ever happened to me. When I have a kid I'll think, "this is pretty great, but nothing like the first time I discovered WikidPad." I created a sourceforge account just to singe its praises. Thank you so freaking much. I'm poor as can be but there's a donation coming your way all the same.
Very good software, it just works and content can be read with a simple text editor when wikidpad is not available for some reason.
This is a great piece of software for organizing and storing information. You can be as simple or as complex as you like, and the interface is very straightforward. I've tried various other approaches to information organization, and for me this is the best by quite a distance. Publishing to a set of HTML pages, for me, makes Wikidpad the top program for referring to information. The pages are clean and uncluttered, and therefore easy to read. And of course, you can share (read-only) the wiki simply by sending out a set of HTML pages to your friends and/or colleagues. Thoroughly recommended.
this is good!
Definitely a great project! Keep up the good work!
