Mac Notepad 7.0 ships
Apimac has released Mac Notepad 7.0, upgrading its text software with an improved interface, including new drag-and-drop features. Both imports and exports of data can now be performed through drag-and-drop commands: dropping a folder into the source notes list imports text, while dropping notes into a folder exports. Version 7.0 also adds a new categories source list, along with support for mail notes. Import and export formats now range from plain and styled text through to RTF, HTML, Word and OpenOffice, including DOCX and XML files.
The app organizes notes via self-created subject categories, and two search methods, simple or pattern-based. Each database created by a user can optionally be password-protected, and a floating window can be toggled on to provide quick access to the software without consuming screen space. Mac Notepad 7.0 requires Mac OS X 10.4, and a 1GHz processor. It costs $25, with a five-license pack selling for $35.
