I tested this program as I like the idea of encryption to keep note private if needed.
How are the notes saved? Are they text files or as part of a database file? In other words, do you have to copy-paste or do some kind of export to get the notes out of Jovial?
The notes are saved into a XML file separated from the Category of note which is saved into another XML file. The software itself manage the link between the notes and and the category tag associated to them. So basically this software is an XML parser dedicated to note (encrypted/Private note or Clear/Public note with category). Still a neat and extra light software.
- The file that contains all the "categories" created in Jovial Memos.
Note: they are four categories by default but you can edit too. The categories are Personal, Home, Work and General. 'All' is the extra category representing all the previous one.
- The file that contains all the memos that the user created.
These two file MUST be located into the application folder.
Other then cut and Paste I could not find a way to export these note, neither a way to print them. Otherwise you will need to parse the XML file for notes but what about the encrypted one? Another of my concern is how big the XML file can grow before negative impact? I suppose the software will permits to export and print note later on the track.
Other question what type of encryption is used? Where does it save the password? I still try to answer the last two one. Anyway, have all a nice day.
