  • tabbed RTF editor?

    I've experiemented with many tools and programs in implementing GTD and each has had positives and negatives. Now, I think I've finally figured out the perfect software application for me to implement GTD and meet my many (crazy) criteria.

    I need a program that handles RTF files***

    Specifically, I needed a program that allows me to display multiple RTF files at once or move through opened files very quickly. A tabbed interface would be ideal. It should have a clean interface and run with minimal memory. It should be fast and respond snappily. It would be even better if, like an IDE, I could save a shortcut that points to groups of files so that I can jump into my project with minimum double-clicking.

    What I need is a program that helps me utilize multiple RTF files (TXT-only or any other format will not do).

    Maybe there is some VB I could write to do this in MS Write?

    Any suggestions?

    ***RTF files are great because pretty much any word processor on the major computer platforms (Windows, MacOS, Linux) can open them. They look the same in all applications and you can even embed files in them. This is great for my Journal entries from my weekly review that contain embedded pictures, spreadsheets, etc.

    Hi!

    Keynote does what you look for.
    It is freeware an one of my favourite programs.
    It works with RTF format.

      Thank you, Petter_J, but no, keynote does not do what I need it to do.

      In Keynote, you can save a file as RTF but you cannot open an existing RTF file.

      I'm trying to get away from databases and proprietary formats. Simple RTF (and in a lot of cases, TXT) files are what I want.

      Thanks anyway.

        Virtual Node

        Hi again,


        You can make a note "Virtual" and point to a RTF file anywhere.
        It can then be edited inside of Keynote.

        Right click on a node and select "Virtual Node" in tthe menu.

        Regards
        Petter

          YES!!!

          YES!! YES!!!

          Petter_J, THANK YOU for responding with that.

          I've looked at Keynote several times before and thought, "if only it edited files directly..."

          This is exactly what I was looking for. I think this will become MY favorite program as well.

          Cheers!
