I'm havimg trouble getting Opera to run on my machine. I keep getting the meesage "Could not locate remote server." My network settings seem OK as Safari and Firefox work OK. Turning off my firewall doesn't help either. Anybody know how I can fix this problem?

Notebook now doesn't show up in the contextual menu Services in Snow Leopard. You can't 'clip' to a document from Safari like you could in Leopard.

The zip file doesn't expand. It gives an error message when expanding.

In my opinion, I think Notebook is a extremely useful program, even more useful than Microsoft Word. I have two copies Microsoft Word on my machine, and I probably understand 10% of Word's functionality.

Notebook, on the other hand, is easy to learn, easy to use, looks good, and has features that I've never seen in a word processor.

One feature it has is called Clipping. I do a lot of writing for my website, and the old way of doing things was copy your text in Safari, switch to Microsoft Word and paste, go back to Safari, copy some more text, subsequently pasting it in Microsoft Word, etc.

Notebook saves you the step of having to switch to your word processor to do a paste. The way it works is: you select your text in Safari that you want to place in your Notebook document, press your secondary mouse button, and select Notebook from the contextual menu that appears. There are several options here, but the easiest one is to select Clip to "Clippings" In 'Your Document'. You will hear a sound that resembles the sound of scissors cutting paper. But, when you return to your Notebook document, the text that you just previously selected and clipped is there!

Plus, when reviewing my research materials, I frequently see a section on a page that has some good stuff, and wish that I had more from that particular site. It's no problem with Notebook. On the left-hand side of each clipping, there's an icon of a small pair of scissors that, when clicked on, has a SnapBack feature, that will open up that page in Safari for you, allowing you to copy more text. A really useful feature!

Additionally, it lets you assign keywords to certain sections, and, in an area called the Multidex, you can review the sections to which you've assigned the various keywords. But the Multidex reveals so much more than just keywords. Notebook's Multidex has pages that reveal every occurrance of every word in your document, shows sections that you've highlighted a certain color, all numbers, capitalized words and more! By clicking on an entry in the Multidex, you're taken to the original page.

Two other features that set it apart from other word processors are Sticky Flags and Stickers.

A Sticky Flag is a small flag that you can attach to the outside of a cell, allowing you to annotate it, so you can quickly go to a section of a page by clicking on the flag. Even if the page where the flag is positioned is not on top of your notebook, if you can see it, just clicking on it brings that page to the front. You can even set these flags so that when you scroll up and down on the page, the flag stays in its original location.

A Sticker is a small icon that you can place on a particular cell of text. There are probably 30 of these icons you can choose from. The beauty of Stickers is, there is a Multidex page for Stickers. I use them to categorize different sections of text. For example, I frequently write articles on various herbs, and I can categorize my text using different categories such as dosage, benefits, contraindications and side effects, with each Sticker representing a different category.

It has three types of pages, one for outlining, one for standard writing, and a third one, one I've never seen before called a Cornell Note Taking Page. This third type divides your page up into three sections: the right section, where you write most of your text; the left section, where you can add notes; and the bottom section, where you can write a summary. This could be an extremely useful page for a college student, I think.

Plus, it lets you link a section of text, to a section of text on another page. This is extremely useful when you're reviewing your final draft, and you want to check your final copy against your original research, to see if you got your facts straight. Here again, just click on the icon to the left of that particular cell of text, and you will return to the page it's linked to.

The only area where it's lacking, I think, is, it has a limited grammar checker. But, short of that, it's an excellent, stable program.

Well, I'm just scratching the surface on this attractive, useful program. And to boot, the price can't be beat. It's the best $49.95 I've ever spent for software, without question.

If you're looking for a inexpensive, attractive, useful word processor, Notebook could be just what you're looking for.

I've got some good news to report.

I received a nice email from the developer of copypaste earlier in the week.

I found out the reason why he wasn't responding to my emails. It seems his spam checker thought my messages were spam, thus they were filed accordingly.

As I was angry because I thought he was ignoring my original messages, I warned him in my second email that I would write a negative (but truthful) review if he didn't respond to me. I normally wouldn't have written such a lengthy review, but I felt that he just didn't give a 'Rip'.

In this email I received from him, he explained that they were working on bug fixes that would fix these problems. He also apologized that my email messages were flagged by his spam filter. He was very concerned that I was having the problems I stated in my review.

In my response to him, I told him that I was a reasonable guy and if I had received a response from him, I would have patiently waited for an upgrade. Consequently, I wouldn't have posted that review. (I also recommended that he take a hard look at that spam filter.)

It's nice to know that these programmers care after all.

In the end, he did the right thing by contacting me and explaining things.

After reading this email, I have every confidence that these problems will be fixed in the weeks to come, plus some new features may be added too.

When that day comes, I'll write another review.

However, this one will be much more favorable.
