Exactly what I’ve been looking for
I can’t believe I’ve found an app that does EXACTLY what I’ve been needing an app to do — be a quick place to scrawl some temporary text for reference. I used to use nvALT, until my computer inexplicably decided to utterly break the program, but I was never entirely happy with it. I didn’t want a place for saving and organizing notes, where I’d have to come up with file names before I could even start typing. I wanted someplace that I could scrawl something my boss said to me. Quickly accesible by hotkey, instant writing, utterly disposable. The fact that you can make the window float on top of other windows in this app is what’s really putting me over the moon. When rewriting a document, I like to keep a copy of chunks of the original text for me to reference and cannibilize from. Having the original in one window and the new document in another side by side was too distracting for me. Until now, I’ve been using SnappyApp to take a floating screenshot of the original text which I can make small enough to not be distracting while still using it as a reference, but I couldn’t copy/paste from that. Now I can. This app is seriously like someone read the wishlist in my mind. I’m so happy right now.
I downloaded this app, but it will not open. The first time I attempted to open it, I saw a message saying something about a keyboard command unable to be configured. After that, nothing happens at all when trying to open.
Just what the doctored ordered
I love this app. It's my killer, everyday app. I often like to write an email or a post or whatever to a text editor before I transfer it to its final place. Sometimes because I work on it thoughout the day. I was using Mac's TextEdit, but that was a pain especially since I use "Spaces" (now "Mission Control"). It was a real pain switching back and forth between desktops to get back to TextEdit. My only wish: The ability to change font size.
What I was looking for
Works on snow leopard and lion. Works with spaces. Allows for find and replace. I would like a regex capable find and multiline replace but this will work for now. Also I would like to see the ability for syncing the notes across computers possibly with dropbox or icloud.
super simple & super efficient. i've tried all the similar apps, & i firmly believe this is the best one out there. couldn't ask for anything more or anything less
