FiveNotes2.2

Markdown-based text editor for notes.

Overview

FiveNotes (formerly known as Quick) is a small text editor that you can always access by clicking (or pressing shortcut keys) on its mtatus-bar icon, even if you're working in a full-screen app. If you prefer, it can stay on top of the window so it can be used as a cheat-sheet app. FiveNotes offers exactly 5 notes that can be switched using colourful circles under the text area or by pressing shortcut (Cmd+Shift+[ and Cmd+Shift+] or Cmd+number-of-note).

The application supports basic markdown formatting so your notes are clear. FiveNotes markdown includes headers, bold and italic text, quotes and lists (started with * or - character). It's a great app for people who create small text files to write simple, temporary notes. You don't have to worry about files, their names and saving them. What you write in FiveNotes remains there. If you need to write something quickly (for example a phone number) just open FiveNotes and write it.

I've been using this for a few weeks and finally have discovered where it fits into my daily workflow. When I have an idea that I know I will want to reference at a later time I will jot it in one of my notes. Then as I need it later I cut it out of the note and I free up one of the five again for later. The best feature of these notes is that the menu item will stay active even when I click out of it so I can use it as a reference and continually add new thoughts to it. Great for notetaking while reading an article, or creating a temporary to-do list whilst going through email. It has more than a few uses and will stay in my menu bar for a while.

One of the screenshots for this app show a dark mode but I don't see that in the preferences in the app. Is there a menu bar option in the system settings that makes the whole top bar in dark mode?
