I liked this tool already when it was posted on the forums. Simple, lightweight and yet versatile. And it works also if you use a dark-desktop colorscheme (no skinning crap or unmodifyable custom colors). About the only thing i miss is being able to use the calucator pages in a way, in which the result is printed on the next line, with the cursor behind it, so that one can use the result for the next calculation.

Best app. I ever found.
Many useful functions and uses low system resources.

Is it just me or are notes NOT able to be sent to the printer?

The current version of minipad2 is 3.1.4,updated in Aug 1st.
This little thingy is gettin' better and better ...

Not bad but when you 'Export' the names of folders are not saved so the notes are difficult to find.
(See Mempad).

Nice! Appears to save the names of folders in this version when exporting. Yes, there doesn't seem to be a print option in the menu? Other than the print option issue, I"m really liking this.

The current "update" on portablefreeware is misleading. There is no update for the current stable version. The currently listed update is for the beta version. The download link however links to the older stable version.

Either show the version and link for current stable version, or show version and link for beta version - but not a mismatch of both.

(DL-Link to current beta: )

I feel bad that I put this aside too quickly last year when I was shopping for a notes-taker, minipad2 does SO MUCH more than that. I started using it again recently, and the features I'm using a lot are the "memo" page to run Scheduled Tasks (I love this), the Clipboard monitor, the Auto-Record to paste all copied text fragments directly into the selected Notes page (great for snagging notes from multiple documents or websites without having to switch windows, but it can't copy obfuscated or friendly-text urls as live links), and Launcher pages to open apps and documents. I give it an extra gold star for the too-cool AutoHide feature which slides it out of the edge of the screen, mouse-over pulls it back into view with no need to click the tray icon to activate it. I'm still finding new features and loving it more each day.
Ten gold stars and four thumbs up!

Good program! The only lacking is an option to password protect.
Back to MemPad for me...
