6976RE: [NTO] version five
- Jan 6, 2006Hi Jody,
I know there's an EXTREME risk of Don having started a "me too" thread with
this thread, and I'm about to join it....

(The other bits are less important to me, but I recognise may be the core
reason for using NoteTab for others)
The point is that when I first started with Mini Note Tab under Win3.x the
product was being constantly updated and improved. Now it has been allowed
to stagnate. There are now many editors which offer customisable syntax
highlighting, and some which offer tree-view notes. We regularly see
concerns about NoteTab regex issues and I know that clip programming remains
a major attraction of NoteTab for many.
My fear is that unless Eric turns his attention to updating what has been
his core product he may lose some of his reputation as one of the finest
one-man software developers around.
Currently, NoteTab continues to meet my needs - although I keep coming close
to moving to TopStyle for my web development work (and that is the bulk of
my use of NoteTab). Once I saw NoteTab being recommended to others
regularly. I no longer see that. And that is a worry!
