@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.

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

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

Would be great if you could just save as plain text and save to dropbox, that way I could sync the notes on my phone. Apart from that, great app.

I've been using MemPad for more than a year now and have found it very reliable, as well as incredibly flexible and versatile for its small size. It's text-based, but lets you link to virtually any external file and open it by association, so that text and related multimedia content on a given topic can be kept together. For links to program files or shortcuts, the extension can be omitted, and relative paths make the links a lot shorter, too. It's also very easy to set up a right-click menu for inserting accented characters, another one that lets you search selected text online in your choice of search engines, etc. The program can be displayed in any font face and size, and the user can customize the background colors, which can make reading easier on the eyes.

Using MemPad is not difficult to learn, but unlike so many other apps, this one has a very thorough and easily understood help file that actually does provide help! It's in the form of a MemPad data file, so that navigating the help file actually demonstrates the use of the program at the same time.

MemPad's unicode support and full portability are the icing on the cake.

been using this wonderful program forever...just recently, when i open mempad a popup opens asking me whether i want to open a .BAK or a .LST file.. i choose .LST then proceed as normal... how do i default to a .LST file to eliminate this popup?

michel: copying something into a file with a proprietary format will corrupt the file; use the provided functions!

Installed, copied some info and when I go to the program again it asks me for a password.
It wasn't an encripted file. Lost data and time.
This one is unreliable. Run.

Great program for keeping all your notes and passwords.
