NoteTaker 1.5: Even More Noteworthy

NoteTaker 1.5: Even More Noteworthy -- AquaMinds has released version 1.5 of their flagship outliner, NoteTaker, with many improvements (see "Take Note of NoteTaker" in TidBITS-677). References to external files are now aliases, which work even if a target file is moved. Clippings can now be more informative about their source; for example, clipping text from a Web browser identifies the source by application and URL. A new Find All button gathers links to all search results in a single drawer. A history of visited pages is maintained; you can view it, or just step back and forward as in a browser. Links can now emanate from a stretch of text (not just an entry as a whole). Keyboard navigation is much improved, and menu keyboard shortcuts are completely customizable; the look of documents can be heavily customized as well. All NoteTaker documents in your Documents folder are now treated as a library; thus, they are listed in a drawer in any document, and you can open any page of, and search in, a library document even if it isn't open to begin with. All sections and pages in the current document are also listed in this drawer, so you can navigate to a specific page easily. The upgrade is free for registered users, otherwise NoteTaker 1.5 costs $70, or $40 for academic use, and a free 30-day trial version is available as a 5.7 MB download. NoteTaker 1.5 requires Mac OS X 10.2 or higher. [MAN]
