My Notes Keeper and RightNote

I wonder whether anybody here is using “My Notes Keeper” (http://www.mynoteskeeper.com) or “RightNote” (http://rightnote.bauerapps.qarchive.org). I think they are currently the best alternatives to the famous KeyNote (http://www.tranglos.com/free/keynote_main.html). Personally I’ve used “My Notes Keeper” for a long time, but in recent versions, RightNote seems to catch up and I think about switching. I’d like to hear your experience with these and similar alternatives to KeyNote.

Thanks - I was not aware of that. Good to see that somebody resumed development of KeyNote. But I think KeyNote actually needed a complete rewrite (that was what the original author intended to do, but it became too overwhelming), and also porting to a more modern development platform, if it wants to have a bright future, instead of just adding new features as the new developer does.

So currently I find MNK and RightNote more convincing. E.g. they both support tables. KeyNote NF has the advantage of being open source, though.

As a longtime user of KeyNote I jumped on RightNote when it became available.  Unfortunately, while there was a period of time where the author provided frequent updates (to address minor issues), there hasn’t been a significant functional update since my initial purchase.  The added functionality over KeyNote does not outweigh the missing customization options like using my own custom icons for tree nodes and tabs, and lack of export options.

I ended up going back to KeyNote NF.  Hopefully RightNote’s author will actively enhance it.

I can really recommend AM-Notebook: http://www.aignes.com/notebook.htm
It has both: tables (with Excel like formulas) and RTF-Notes (TRichEdit).
It never crashes (Use it everday since half a year.).
Very responsive author.
Small, portable, clean interface, good export and something I like very much: the data is not stored in a database, but in separate files, therefore nothing can get corrupted.
Another thing - not many outliners do - which is very important for me: the tabs open several documents from one outline and not several outline files.
Fast open/find notes: press Ctrl+F5 start typing the name of the note, press Enter voila.
Share notes collection with other users over network.
One of the very best applications I ever used.
(not affiliated with author - just very happy user.)
