Crashes whenever I try to open a file, either through the File menu, or via the Ctrl-O keyboard shortcut. It does this on both of my PCs (XP Pro SP3).

I installed Trix as adviced on web page. However being quite stupid with applications I cannot find any interface to use the Trix. When I qlick Trix.exe it gives an alert that program is already running, I just know where is it running. Pls help

I've found the solution, thanks. The application runs quite well.

My current preferred notepad replacement, after swapping the hideous default icon with the the vanilla one from notepad (TY, ResHack). Shame it doesn't do text case conversions, then it would be perfect -- as it is, I use a well known commercial editor for heavy duty text editing and nfoPad (totally portable from v1.56, see post @ for nfo file viewing. For the rest, Win32Pad is lightning fast and perfectly fit for the common text checking/light editing tasks. I don't hesitate to recommend it!

@Midas, re: viewers for ANSI art (code page 437, extended ASCII)

Just thought I'd mention that some of these viewers contain translation fonts. A while back I extracted an ANSI/NFO viewer (don't recall which one... maybe getDiz), located the fonts and placed them in my system/fonts directory. This makes any editor ANSI-capable because the work is being done by an external font.

Thought I'd mention it in case your main editor supports font-toggling (toolbar button allowing a quick switch between two system fonts, example: metapad) in order to avoid switching editors just to view some of the text 'graphics'.

@Pax: great tip. Still, I'll be keeping NFOPad ( 'cause it's convenient and I sometimes make adjustments to viewed files...

Steganos LockNote v1.0.5

Checker on 6 Oct 2015

LockNote works in two ways: it is a notepad that encrypts everything you put inside and also creates copies of itself when you drag-drop a text file into it. You end up with a new EXE that displays the content of that text file when run using the correct password.

System Requirements: Win2K / WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10
Writes settings to: None
Stealth: ? Yes
Unicode support: No
License: GPL
How to extract: Download the ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch LockNote.exe.
What's new? New:
  • Changed default font to Lucida Console to avoid 1/l - O/0 confusion.
  • Font typeface can be selected (Arial/Courier New/Lucida Console/Tahoma/Verdana).
  • Font size can be selected (9/10/12/14).
  • LockNote saves window size, font size and font typeface.
  • Find Dialog: Enter/Tab/Escape/Space/Ctrl-V keys work.
  • Find Dialog: Message displayed if search string is not found.
  • Find Dialog: F3 brings up Find Dialog or finds next result.

New version LockNote 1.0.4:

Please update

Gris on 2009-11-14 17:22

It would be nice if LockNote will have an option to increase font sizes.

codeNinja on 2015-10-05 08:17

For everyone still using this, be aware that version 1.0.5 still has some bugs.

User review from username al156243 in sourceforge posted this on 01/04/2015

"Locknote has a clean simple design. I would be very useful if not for a fatal bug where it occasionally fails to save changes. There is no error message or any other indication that it has failed. I have had it working perfectly for a long period of time and, for no reason, suddenly stops updating changes. If I use "save as" to create a new file, it will continue to work but will eventually fail again for no apparent reason. "

User review from username fireshadow500 in sourceforge posted this on 02/22/2013

"Be careful - LockNote silently fails to save data. You can tell by watching the Modified timestamp ... when it fails it doesn't change. I lost critical banking login details. I am using KeePass now, which isn't great for handling text but at least it is reliable."

review link:

If you still want to use this, make backups when updating the content and always check if content is saved properly.

An alternative to this is fSekrit (smaller and works the same as lockNote)
