Special features of Note-C
### "Open" storage of your texts Each entry is stored in a separate file and you can freely choose the location where your entries should be stored. Note-C automatically creates a corresponding, clear folder structure in which you also can quickly find your entries outside of Note-C.
By choosing the location of your choice, you can also conveniently sync your entries through a cloud service using your cloud directory as the storing-location.
In addition, the entries are saved in the open txt format so that you can easily open your entries with other text editors. You keep full control over your entries at any time.
Alternatively, you can also save your entries in the open Textbundle-package-format, which combines all the data of an entry in a file. This is done by a single click in the preferences of Note-C. All information about the Textbundle-format can be found at www.textbundle.org.
### Creating Multiple Notebooks
Note-C allows you to create as many notebooks as you like, so that you can save your entries, for example. thematically separated from each other.
### Special Editor and Full-Screen Modes
The Note-C editor has many useful features that make writing more efficient and eliminating the need using the mouse, such as automatic list recognition (* and - characters) or moving text passages using keyboard shortcuts. Furthermore, Note-C offers a built-in Tab-Action-Manager, where you can define texts that are inserted into your entries by a keyword and the Tab-key. In addition, you can visually adjust the editor to your needs in many areas: colors of font and background, font size and type, line spacing and other options.
In addition, Note-C also offers a distraction-free mode in addition to the well-known full-screen mode, where you can concentrate completely on the text.

All languages supported by Note-C have a rich set of keyboard shortcuts that allow you to efficiently format your texts. In addition, Note-C offers a built-in preview mode to view your formatted entries.

You can create a collection of files for each entry. These files are stored in a separate folder for each entry. Note-C offers the possibility to view many of these files directly in Note-C. Note: Files can not be inserted directly into the text of entries, but you can add images using markup.

Ratings and Reviews
Want to Like It
This note-taking app has great features. I want to like it. Find the color/appearance options too limited and hard to set up.Too much black. Icons available to represent notebooks are not at all to my taste. More variety? Color scheme does not work for me. Selection bar for entries blocks out the titles of the entries. Dark blue icons against a black background tend to disappear. How the menu options for starting a new workbook interact I found not clear. Took a lot of time experimenting until I could figure out how to set up new notebooks. Would prefer clearer Instructions. From the feature list, I suspect the programming on this app might be excellent but the interface I think needs work. Packaging is important. Suspect this app is better than it looks. That can be subjective, of course, but I’ve found it hard to get started using it, trying to get past configuring the look and feel to make them more workable for my note-taking purposes.
This developer “gets it”!
Open standards. Open formats. Keep It Simple Sam. I have every one of this developers’ products and couldn’t be happier.
I sync all my notes on my Synology DiskStation. I don’t use “the cloud”. Everything works flawlessly. Plus, I have the peace of mind knowing that all my data is in an easy to migrate format (markdown usually) and not housed in some proprietary database “locking me in” to a specific Company or software package.
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you! (Danke schön!)
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
