Thanks Pavi for your comments.

Other users also requested to add indexing of PDF files. We will pay attention more carefully at such request, to see how it can be integrated in a wiki system.

Speaking of Brazil, unlike the U.S. government, Brazil protects its home industries.  For example, it just added a 30% (or more) import tax on automobiles to prevent cheap Chinese cars from decimating its home automobile industry.

Cassius, that is not entirely true. In fact the government is trying to avoid that local companies (not local but subsidiaries) fire people since they are not selling well right now. But the prices of the cars produced here are an absurd. For instance, air conditioning most of time is an optional item (in a tropical country). The local companies are suffering from the competition from Korea and China car makers offering products with more standard items at lower prices. The government move also makes companies in uneasy position. No one would invest money in new factories if the horizon is not clear enough. By the way, what the government did is illegal since the tax can only be charged after 90 days of the resolution and they started to charge right now. Cherry, a Chinese car maker, obtained permission from a court to not pay the tax right now. I don’t like Chinese cars but they are offering cheaper products with many items not available in standard cars here. Just one example of the local car makers. Volkswagen produces a car named Kombi which its project dates more than 40 years with just minor cosmetic changes.

Eduardo, the change log is indeed impressive, as is the imagery. One point of concern from my prior testing of Connected Text (I will be happy to test this version as soon as I get my PC cleaned up again) were the rather limited ways to get info in and out of the program—though the HTML export in particular is very good. Has this been addressed somehow?

Alexander,

CT can import Text, HTML and RTF files. It tries at its best to convert HTML and RTF to its markup commands. Topics can be exported to Text, XML, HTML and HTML Help. CT also has an auto-backup feature: every time a topic is written in the data base, a text file is generated as well. So if for some reason you lose the database, all your data can be rebuilt using these files.

I think the most important aspect of CT is how text can be tagged (as a link or as a property) enabling several commands to collect and summarize your topics. It is not a Swiss knife and some user may not be feel comfortable using markup commands. However, markup can be seen as a method to transfer knowledge to your text in orthogonal way. This simple act of creating a link indicates the importance of the selected words.
