KeyNote v1.6.5

webfork on 25 Apr 2016

Keynote is a flexible notebook that is particularly suitable for writing and organizing free-form information, especially those that fit naturally within a tree-based structure, such as lists or outlines. A search function quickly locates information you are looking for. Notes can be easily and securely encrypted using either Blowfish or IDEA under the File - Properties menu.

Keynote NF (New Features) is an updated beta fork of the original code. As the name suggests, it adds many features including check boxes on children of selected nodes, hidden nodes, alarms on nodes, better treatment of tables, improved treatment of links, multi-language support, automatic compression, etc.

System Requirements: Win95 / Win98 / WinME / WinNT / Win2K / WinXP
Writes settings to: Application folder
Unicode support: No. ... Keynote NF: Yes
License: MPL
How to extract:
  • Keynote: Download the installer and install to the default folder. Then copy all files (except unins000.exe and unins000.dat) to a folder of your choice. Finally, uninstall the program. Launch keynote.exe -noreg.
  • Keynote NF: No install required; download the ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch keynote.exe -noreg.

I've used this constantly every day for a couple of years now and absolutely love it. I run it from an encrypted partition and it's proved to be extremely stable and reliable on my two PCs (XP and Vista). I particularly like being able to pull in text or RTF files as virtual nodes. Better support for images (JPGs with drag and drop) would be useful so they could be included in notes.

The download link for KeynotePortable zip appears to point to a link that only provides the source code. I'm not absolutely sure about this, but I'm pretty sure. I'm trying to run it on Linux using Wine. I searched around until I found a direct link to the most recent iteration of Keynote, which is now back in development, at where all "new" Keynote files are hosted. When I downloaded keynote-nf (New Features) which was packaged in Release_1.7.9.1 Beta 1.rar 799 KB and extracted keynote.exe it ran as normal without a hitch. This is a wonderful little app and I am extremely happy to see someone pick it back up for continued development. We are all better off for it.

Both Keynote and Keynote NF are fantastic. The original has fewer features of course but also crashes a lot less. NF is very unstable.

@Tom: in my installation, the search options allow setting filters. then only the nodes are displayed which fullfill the search criteria.
