"I see this as an amazing information organizational tool. I am planning on building this into my personal information management system. I have had this application for a day and I am really getting my information organized. I may have it a little easier than others because I have a very organized manual (3.5” index card) information back up system. I have been looking for an application that I could use that had flexibility and power but also worked simply to organize my information. I think this is it and I have been typing and copying and creating topics and sub topics and I haven’t hit a snag yet."
"I should have bought this app earlier. It's really helpful. Many, many years ago I used to write my texts with MaxThink, which I really loved. Now I feel like coming home again. Writing long texts is almost impossible if you only have a normal word processor. The hierarchical writing with Whizfolders can make anybody a writer. You see what's missing and can fill out the holes. You see your own way of thinking and you can correct it easily."
"I use it for my research and I can't imagine a writing program that is more efficient. It's the perfect tool for any multipotentialite who loves nothing more than to have a tool that organizes and connects the wide range of ideas and thoughts we have floating around in our head."
"What I appreciate is your focus on notes. I'm so tired of programs that start out well-composed but then think that they must add more and more features to become 'multi-purpose' and end up clogging themselves with lots of junk that most users don't need or want. Notes are at the core of what most of us do, and a program that optimizes note-taking and management will always be of great value."
"I am very impressed with WhizFolders; it is the type of software I have been looking for over a long period. It is so well thought out, functional and user-friendly."
Convenient tree list to manage and outline notes by their titles. See the presentation to know why a list is better for managing your notes as compared to a word processor or editor where too much scrolling is involved.
You can insert pictures, tables and OLE objects, such as Excel Spreadsheets. What's the use? You can keep usage notes about the spreadsheet in the same note.
Assign Tags (Keywords) to your notes and find them easily. Tags are used to assign relevant terms not present in the actual text of a note.
If you accidentally changed or deleted a note, you can recover them from a "changed notes" database.
You can find one or more notes easly by doing a boolean search for words with AND, OR, NEAR.
Just select complete or partial list of notes and do a print or export to get a merged draft that you can use in your word processor for those final finishing touches. A copy, paste operation can also merge the selected notes, with or without headings, with or without level indents.
A note is automatically pasted when you do a copy to clipboard in another application. There is no need to switch back and forth between the other application and WhizFolders.
When you paste information from a web site, the location is automatically pasted for reference. This is a great way to quickly collect information from the Internet and later research it by using the links pasted with them.
You can highlight specific notes in the list by changing their highlight color or by changing the icons.
You can insert links that allow you to jump from note to related notes. Helps tremendously when reviewing and brainstorming the notes.
You can insert links going to external files, folders and web sites. So you can use WhizFolders as a launchpad or bookmark manager with the added feature of keeping helpful notes about those links.
Copy, paste works just the way you would want it to work. If you copy some notes and paste them in the same or another list, the child notes are automatically pasted. If you paste them in an external application like Microsoft Word, a merged copy is pasted.
When dragging notes in the tree list from one position to another, precise drop marks appear to guide you as to where the dragged notes will be dropped. You can drag and drop multiple notes and even complete branches of notes. Alternatively, buttons are also there to move or change levels of the notes in the tree list.
You can export the merged outline (a bunch of notes) in Word compatible RTF or outline format. This helps give fine finishing touches to your final draft in Word.
You can turn your notes list into a simple, free format To Do List by showing Checkmarks on each note. See the presentation for an example.
In WhizFolders, you outline the titles of the notes in a powerful tree list with drag and drop features. If you have never outlined in a list before, you will love this aspect. See the presentation to know how this gives you the combined power of an outliner and an organizer.
You don't have to horizontally scroll the outlining list to see complete note titles. Each title is word-wrapped.
You can hoist part of an outline to concentrate on it. Other parts of the outline are hidden from you to avoid distraction.
WhizFolders is primarily a two-pane outliner. But at times, you want to view the complete outline along with note contents, indented. Deluxe edition supports this feature.
