CherryTree... The powerful note application



Today we are looking at Cherrytree, the powerful note taking application.

Brief introduction...
 
       Cherrytree is a powerful application, that can take care all your notes, to-do items, store links, pictures, tables, even entire documents in an organized hierarchical ambient.
       The notes are organized in the left panel on the main window, where small cherries to identify nodes. Red ones show parent nodes, blue cherries show child nodes. For each node you can change the name, and select its type: Rich Text, plain text, automatic syntax highlighting. Additionally, you can use tags for each note or make a node read-only, so it can’t be modified.
       Cherrytree has a fast, customizable, intuitive interface, includes an Undo function, supports table editing and importing / exporting (as CSV file), line wrapping, auto-saving, and also available in several languages.


 If you want to install CherryTree, view our small Tutorial "How to install on the maim Linux distros".

More Pluses...

       Cherrytree has a clean, compact, efficient interface, and runs quite fast on both older and newest machines. With a cross-platform versatility, and combined with a cloud storage service to synchronize notes across multiple computers, turns this free unlimited traffic app, a serious content to replace ( on Linux systems ) the most known and favourite of many... "Evernote"
       By default, Cherreytree saves all the work as a single XML file or SQLite database, optionally password-protecting it to maintain your privacy. Not least important, until now, this app is getting constant development / maintenance, and that shows the health and quality of this program.
