It would be valid if Zim notebooks were single files, that would open in Zim when clicked on. But then you couldn't select a folder, you would have to send the whole notebook. I share my computer tricks with some pals, my work with others. I put computer tricks in one notebook, work in

I think this is a good one. Anyone feel like designing a wizard (or assistant in gtk jargon) for first time users ? It should just explain what a notebook is and ask for the location to store notes and other properties with some meaningful defaults or select an existing notebook.        Why

Hi all, Thanks for the nice discussion, although the topic sounds a bit like flame-bait... It is not my intention to compete with other project for competition sake - believe me if there is a project out there that satisfies my needs I will be glad to use their code instead of my ow. Would

How about the following?: * Implement a migrate notebook feature, which consists of move the files+adjust config files * Choose a directory like ~/Notes. If it is taken, choose ~/zim, or ~/Notes-012131231, or whatever that is not taken. Place there the first notebook. * Let the first note have

2009/6/28 Dotan Cohen dotanco...@gmail.com: I have not used the Tomboy software, but it appears to be a personal wiki which is just Zim's niche. Is anyone familiar with this software? Where does it lack compared to Zim? What features does it have that Zim is missing? Answering that question

Dotan, you're right. I like zim a hell of a lot more than this tomboy, but if there's a discussion about not depending on mono, then we should go promote zim. In short: * tomboy doesn't have any feature that zim hasn't (ok, it has one: you can choose text size) * zim has a lot of useful

Does Zim and Tomboy compete is any meaningful way ?? Little yellow sticky notes (small and with a short time duration) and a notebook / journal (longer in both time and length) might be seen to fill different needs on a desktop. I use both, and find a place for both. It would be kinda nice to

Just now noticed an important one: tomboy automatically turns any text that is a name of a note into a link!  This removes some flexibility but makes linking much simpler to understand and easier to manage. Could we have it in Zim? Please no! I have some page names that are common words, it
