Nice, would like to see more of the original look and feel. The same window style, à la original, would be nice (no title bar, good ol' page flip animation). I like how you can keep track of the pages you have going, but at the same time still miss the page flip and overall interface, and I'd be willing to sacrifice the nice new features like backgrounds and a separator control to keep track of how many pages there are. Still, this took a good while to make and is high quality.

In terms of bugs, I found just one: the minimum amount of pages is 8. Press the button to delete a page and choose to go ahead with this, then make a new page. The new page will be numbered 8 because the page count supposedly decreases, but the control doesn't remove the eighth section from it. Nonetheless, keep working on it! If you work hard enough, I'm sure the day will come when it's an exact reproduction, which I'd love :-)

Great to see an update on this app. A couple of issues. The scroll bar for an individual page only exists on page 3 (at least on my computer). A few times there were some strange effects while scrolling the notes on page three. I wish I had taken a screen shot when this happened. At first I would see lines underneath the words. Then the characters started bending back at the top of the page kind of like the marquee at the beginning of Star Wars No I don't take acid). If I switched a page then went back, the page would be normal. It happened about three times. It has not happened since I moved the app. to the applications folder. When this happened, I was running it from my download folder. I do not know if this would make any difference. I have a MacBook Pro running on 10.4.1. I have used this particular notepad for years any am very happy with it's simplicity. In fact I use it every day and want to thank the developer for updating it.

Sorry about those startup crashes. It was an error with the application trying to read the data file on a system that had never had the application run on it before. The issue has been corrected and itshould function correctly now

What makes this better than TextEdit that is included in OSX?

What makes you think that TextEdit is a notepad app?

One thing that is different is that TextEdit cannot edit the source code of HTML files (apparently). I do some web development, and I need a barebones text editor for those quick HTML edits.

Other than that... I don't know yet. I will have to wait for NotePad 2.5 to download on my painfully slow dial-up connection (

Per me deve essere ancora molto perfezionato. Se si aggiungono troppe schede non è possibile utilizzarle. A che serve dunque il poterle aggiungere?

Changing the icon is also an option, I guess, if it bothers you. I don't mind it.

Oops. I meant manually changing the icon yourself. (blushes :)
