I’ve just received an update from the MyInfo developer (I don’t use it any more, being on Mac, but I know others here do). Here it is verbatim:

MyInfo 7.1
This release adds powerful new features and improves compatibility with other software. MyInfo now supports note backlinks, so you can quickly navigate between your interlinked notes. We’ve added native Microsoft Word file format support and made your notebooks and sections more customizable by adding an option to select default note template for each.
MyInfo Web Clipper now works with MyInfo Portable too.

You can check our blog for more details and see a full list of what’s new in version 7.2.
How to Upgrade
You can upgrade with 50% discount of the retail price here:
Please use the following coupon code:

If you want first to give MyInfo 7 a try, you can download the 30 day trial version and test it. You can safely install it alongside MyInfo 6 - it won’t interfere with your existing MyInfo 6 installation and data.

Thanks for the heads-up. I haven’t used MyInfo before, so I downloaded the trial and gave it a spin. My impressions:

- I like the clean interface. It’s inviting to work in
- Notebooks and sections are a good way to organise, like in OneNote
- I like having a WYSIWYG editor, in this age of markdown etc not having to switch views is a benefit
- Adding attributes to notes is a great feature, as is the ability to define forms
- Perspectives are genius - I wish more programs had those (They are effectively saved searches / filters)
- Backlinks are a good feature, but they appear to only work within the same notebook
- Tags seem to be a bit buggy. There is a tags pane, but it only filters within the section that you are working in
- There doesn’t appear to be a full-screen editor for distraction-free writing

So all in all, it looks nice,and is a good information manager.

For me the use cases are already covered by The Journal (notebooks, sections, tags, templates) and InfoQube (note attributes) so I won’t be adding yet another program to my collection.

This may be of interest:

From the developer (via email):

“This release makes it possible to work with multiple notes (and notebooks) at the same time. You can now open as many application windows as you want!

Want to see the note list, but to have few notes open at a side? It is now possible with the expandable note editor mode where the note is on focus and everything else is hidden.

And since notes are on focus in this release, we’ve greatly improved note editor speed when working with large notes!”

It’s not very noticeable but there is a way.  I didn’t find it until a few months after using the program.

On the bottom right of the window you’ll see three icons. 
The left one maximizes the note list.
The middle one restores note list and editor.
The right one maximizes note editor.

So if you click the right one you’ll have a full screen editor, as long as you don’t have any other panes open.

Forgot to mention, it’s not entirely full screen, the top still shows the toolbars and menu.
