Hmmm... must be a YMMV problem because tear-off notes (which -- if you've note used it -- turn a note made in Pads X into an independent window, like a Sticky) work just fine in this version. (Using 10.4.10).

A neat little app. Simple, straightforward, seems reliable.

Oops -- should have said "work just fine FOR ME".

What do you mean by "YMMV problem"?

I also use 10.4.10 on my Power Mac and,unfortunately, nothing happens whenever I click on the Tear-Off button

"YMMV" stands for "Your Mileage May Vary". To put it more simply, we are both using the same system version; it works on my machine but not on yours; therefore the problem is probably something to do with your machine configuration rather than being inherent in Pads X (in which case it wouldn't work on my machine either).

I hope that clarifies it.

I have been using this VERY useful app and have always received a fast and courteous reply to any queries from the developer. There may be other apps out there that do the same thing but stability and longevity are worth more than dollars.

You will also notice that the developer has completely re-written the app and hasn't asked for more money from the people who already own it.

I think its a bit scathing to rate this app as adequate without giving the new, rewritten app a thorough try.

Careless remarks sometimes costs money. For my book, it does what I want, has done for years and has never once crashed.

In my book, that deserves top marks.

Basically adequate, but there are scads of other (more than adequate) note-taking apps.

Tear-off pages didn't work with the previous version, they don't work with 2.0 :(

Tear-off pages pages dont work. Nothing happens when I click 'Make Tear-Off' :(

And every page is duplicated. Oh well, it's still in beta.
