CherryTree produces great formatted HTML export. It's fully customisable after-the-fact, with the included styles.css. Embedded files, images and the HTML files are stored separately from each other.

@billon
Why are you cutting the actual version number off? OutWiker is at version 1.9.0.790, not 1.9.0, pay attention to what "About" says. I disagree with this practice of yours!

Even with outwiker.ini not stealth: creates folder "enchant" in AppData/roaming/

@hamasaki, To save notes to DropBox , use the Export function, and Export to your Dropbox location.

Cornflower on 2015-01-02 21:37

Printing! I don't know where I saw it, but to Print from Mempad, Export (Page, Node, or Structure), then in the dialogue box, tick "Open the file" and "with program:" and type in notepad.exe /p (or as I do, ted.exe /p -- see ted.exe at http://www.portablefreeware.com/index.php?id=858)

hamasaki on 2015-05-01 15:25

@Cornflower, I`ve tried that but when you save in MemPad it doesn`t update the dropbox file, you have to export it again. No good.

There's a tkoutline.exe v0.94 readily available from http://sourceforge.net/projects/tkoutline/ -- but it does save '.tkoutline.def' and 'tkoutlinerc' to %USERPROFILE%, so here's the config for a yaP launcher: http://pastebin.com/b2m0Cbm9 (Note: tested only under XP!).

smaragdus on 2016-04-23 02:28

I made the mistake to update Tkoutline from version 0.93 to 0.94 because I didn't notice Midas' comment (what he said is true). I deleted the new icon and screen-shot and reverted to the old ones. Sorry.
