Well I don't need a new icon or Lion looking buttons on Snow Leopard. I don't need dropbox, sandbox, sparkle updates or anything else in the release notes for that matter.

I do however, really NEED a SEARCH function!!! Is that EVER going to happen for this app?

From the developer's web site:

"I am in the midst of creating a new program called ScratchBook. The idea behind ScratchBook is to incorporate some of the most requested features for ScratchPad such as searching, naming pages, etc. I am creating a separate program because the idea behind ScratchPad is to keep it as simple as possible, so I do not want to make ScratchPad too complicated."

There's missing a Hotkey for Showing/Hinding the window and a dockless option.

Really nice program. Definitely can handle lots of word processing tasks. Can't beat the price.
