Some further clarification from the CintaNotes developer:

“By the way the information about limitations mentioned there is outdated.

“Recent CN version should have no trouble managing of up to 10,000 notes of reasonable size _per section_,
and up to 100,000 notes in total per notebook, and if you need more you also can divide them into notebooks.

“If you can live with a slight performance degradation, CN easily handles even more notes.”

Thanks. That’s good to know. Sounds like you could write a novel in a single notebook, if you wanted to do such a thing.

It’s an astonishingly good program: its tagging system, for example, is much better than Evernote’s. CintaNote’s chief weakness, it seems to me, is that the handling of images and attachments is awkward. But if you’re trying to organize text-only notes, it performs brilliantly. In other words, you just have to work within its limitations.

I use Cintanotes and find it easy-to-use with solid development/communication from Alex. I’m curious, especially from WSP, how your consolidation plan has gone. I have a bit of the same problem as you (as described in your first post of this topic) of having notes scattered through about four different pieces of software. I’m wondering how people here use Cintanotes. I mostly find myself using it as one big drop-a-note database and then just rely on “search” to find what I need. For me, it’s my Gmail for notes. I don’t delete much with Gmail or worry about folders even, I just search. This is my main Cintanotes method. I know I am not using it to its fullest, but it works. However, if I decide to consolidate I might change things going forward. General thoughts?

By the way, if you haven’t checked it out lately there have been three updates since Christmas with some solid improvements.

I’m just being my usual indecisive self. I’ve spent a lot of time in recent months pasting bibliographical entries from various programs into CintaNotes, but I still have a long way to go. And then I start worrying about CintaNote’s obvious limitations: it doesn’t handle images at all well (in a few of my notes I have photos of tables of contents and that sort of thing), and there is no iOS app (the syncing through Simplenote is a clever idea but not terribly helpful helpful to me).

At the moment I can’t think of a real alternative among the other programs I already have installed on my computer. I’m fond of MyInfo, but a phone app is still shimmering like a hallucination in the distance. Evernote would meet all of my technical requirements, but I find it uncongenial (if only because it is so ugly and cluttered in Windows). So I continue to dither. I seem to recall that we have a word for that kind of behavior on this forum.
