Writers utilize Permanote to arrange their ideas while maintaining control and flexibility over their files.

Permanote enables you to modify text files in your Dropbox and synchronize them across all your devices. Enhance your experience with a customizable macro key strip above the keyboard through a Pro subscription.

Unlike other text editors that impose specific themes to set the mood or require storing notes in a single folder or exclusive file system, Permanote offers you freedom.

Permanote is the go-to tool for organizing thoughts among writers from the New Yorker, BBC correspondents, and CEOs.
