Funny how people are complaining about the lack of features added in the recent updates - this app does everything it can and more already! Every now and then an update to OSX breaks a few things and they fix them, surely this shows how mature and more...

Stopped using it a long time ago because almost only BUG fixes were released (like today). And it seems to be a buggy SW still. I got this impression while reading the list of changes of this and many past older updates.

It would be nice if the demo actually worked. I have Notebook 3 and would like to try out 4 but it's endless screens that end up closing the app. You never actually get to to try it out.

You have to register for the demo. Ah! Why doesn't MacUpdate let me edit my posts? I can think of no other site where I can't edit my posts. I wish MacUpdate would figure out how to do this.

Yes - MacUpdate not allowing you to edit your own post is truly, completely, utterly, totally, absolutely, thoroughly, downright 100% perfectly mental.

I have version 2 and wanted to look at the new version as I'm curious about whether it's worth updating.

I downloaded the new version, got a 30 day trial licence key from Circus Ponies by e-mail, and entered it - only to get a message that the licence key had expired.

The same happened to me until I realized that I had wrongly entered my name. Therefore, check the name with which you asked for the trial license and enter it exactly into the name field. The license key doesn't function with any other name. Hope this helps.

That worked. Thanks Fariborz.

So far, I can’t get to the release notes - to discover what’s new.

I also need to know what an upgrade costs, because I won’t buy version 4 at full price from the 3x version.

They’ve been very good with small updates for quite some time.
That said - its been a very good app to this point. An interface tune-up would be nice.

Their store is down for me so i couldn't put through my order for the upgrade which, for the 3 to 4, is $19.95.

Not just the store. The entire Circusponies website is down. Has been so for hours.

The site has been down since last night.
I understood from other comments that upgrading from 3.x to 4 is about $19.
Also, I saw a post that if you buy 3 upgrades the price is $30.
However, with the site down, it is not possible to do that.
However, I think this program is great and can't wait to get the download.

Every now and then an update to OSX breaks a few things and they fix them, surely this shows how mature and stable the product is? We don't need more bells and whistles, this app already does all I need. I find it stable, fast and still use it every day after years...

Question here being a paranoid person. I am about to dump a ton of notes, etc. that I have been pilling up for the year into Notebook. These are photos as well as screenshot of my various endeavors. Is it possible to collect and open the file from Notebook in Textedit or another application at some late date if God forbid Notebook falls down? I appreciate the answers guys. Thanks

You can export as a text file, rich text file, Word document, or even website format... so if you're paranoid you can export to one of these formats every once in a while as a backup.

This is a good app as far as it goes. Limiting it to one Mac and without a reasonably priced IOS app to go with it. The iPad app at $31.99 (Australian) seems a bit steep especially with nothing for iPhones.

I just wish I could turn everything off and have it just be a version TextEdit that supports anchor links (for an index with links that I can make myself) and lets me resize pictures inline like this does. That's all I want, but no one seems to make it. I just don't need all the extra stuff.

I don't want to have everything in one place. I like to place my text files in folders where they are relevant and that's all I need. I like a table of contents, but not with all the Mutlidex stuff and all my other files showing up, I'd rather that stuff be accessible from the menu bar. I'm sure that's handy for some people, but it's just too much clutter for me.

Also, it's very quirky with carriage returns not acting as expected. The other problem with it's "all in one" approach to filing is I just now while testing it erased a seprate note that I had on my desktop by accident by saving the other file thing that comes up. Just a mess.

Don't get me wrong, this app is great if you've got a lot of time to mess with it, but it's just too clunky for me. For example, I really wish I could move pictures anywhere I want instead of being forced to have it left-aligned. etc. - Just wish I could plop the pictures anywhere and text would flow around it (as an option).

On the positive side, it launches quickly, either as fast or almost as fast as TextEdit does, so that's very impressive.

I'm going to work with this over time and see how much I can strip down from the

I was interested in trying this app – however when I launched the demo, I was prompted to insert a demo license key. To get that, I had to go to the developers website – where they asked for my name, e-mail address and my profession. There was no checkbox to ensure that I won't get any spam ("newsletter") from the company in the future. No link to the company's privacy policy. Well, I've found their privacy policy later on the website. After reading it, I don't feel like wanting to try the app anymore.
