"Notepad" extension is a WebExtension replacement to the QuickFox project. The extension has a note manager panel to allow users to have as many notes and notebooks as they prefer to organize their workflow. There are many editing features available like all modern note-taking solutions. This extension is a lightweight replacement to its standalone alternatives like MS Words. Since this is actually a browser extension, the notepad is integrated into the browser and accepts note appending from the right-click context menu. The actual editor is built on top of the well-known "TinyMCE" project and hence it is very flexible in nature.

Features

  1. What is the "Notepad" extension and how does it work?

    This extension aims to provide an easy-to-use in-browser note-taking solution that supports most common formatting styles like "bold", "italic", "underline", "strike-through", "super-script", "under-script" and "code block". Since this extension is written on HTML5, all the formatting styles that are supported by modern browsers are possible. This extension supports symbol insertion which is commonly used to write mathematical equations. The actual WYSIWYG HTML editor behind this extension is TinyMCE editor. Note that there is no need to save notes before closing the editor. The extension makes sure your changes are being written to the storage before exiting.

  2. Can I open the editor in a separate window instead of the default browser tab?

    Yes, right-click on the toolbar button to change the opening mode. Make sure the notepad itself is closed for this change to take effect. Currently, there are two modes of operation: "Tab" and "Window". We might have popup mode in the future releases. The application-content-mode which was supported in QuickFox editor is not likely to be implemented in this project as there is no WebExtension equivalent APIs for it.

  3. Can I have multiple notes? How do I organize these notes?

    Yes, use the right top button to open the note manager panel. In this panel, you can define a new note or a new notebook. Notebooks are like folders that can be used to keep multiple notes organized. The extension supports note chaining which means you can have multiple notes and notebooks inside a single notebook or the root directory. Note that if a parent notebook is deleted, all the notes and notebooks inside this parent notebook will be removed from the internal storage of the extension (after being confirmed by the user).

    At this moment it is not possible to change the order of notes and notebooks. We will have this option in the future releases.

    Please check the Logs section.

  5. How can I switch between different notes?

    Use the note maanger panel to select a different note.

  6. Can I send a selected text from browser to my notepad?

    Yes, all the notes that have been created from the note manager panel will be listed in the right-click context menu over the selection context. You can simply send the selected area to your notepad using the context menu items (selected text gets cleaned from formatting before being exported). Note that if the selected text is sent to an open note in your notepad, it will get inserted at the cursor location, though if the note is sent to a note that is not active (or when the notepad window is closed), the note is being appended to the bottom of the content with a one empty line as the separator.

  7. What does happen if I delete a single note?

    If a note is selected and then gets deleted, the extension keeps the note's content in the editor as an untracked note (the notepad's window title indicates this note is untracked). Untracked notes get destroyed when the editor is closed. So make sure to backup them to the clipboard before closing the editor. To have your new note being saved after a note is deleted, make sure to select a new note from the note manager window. The title of the editor should match the name of the note.

  8. What does happen if I delete a notebook?

    After a confirmation, all notes and notebooks inside this notebook will be deleted. There is no way to get your notes back after this action is confirmed. Make sure to backup your important notes before performing the delete.
