Hi-Note combines the capabilities of an outline program,
a notepad program and a drawing program to let you store
text and pictures in a hierarchical format. Using a
hierarchical structure helps you organize your notes
better and makes it easier to find the information you
The outline view lets you view your notes in outline form
with one line displayed for each note. "Twistdown" arrows
let you conceal portions of the outline so you only display
as much detail as you want. Rearranging your notes is
easy - just drag a note from one location to another with
the stylus or use the Sort command to arrange a set of notes
in alphabetical order.
The text viewer lets you create large text notes containing up
to 28,672 (28K) characters. Like many Palm applications,
Hi-Note lets you assign your notes to different viewing
"categories." You can mark notes as "private" to prevent
unauthorized viewing or mark them "read-only" to prevent
unintentional modification of their contents.
The picture viewer is a full-featured paint program which you
can use to create pictures up to 800 x 500 pixels in size. It includes:
- 7 drawing tools
- Text tool with selectable fonts
- Selection tool with graphics clipboard (cut/copy/paste/drag)
- 21 brush shapes
- 24 paint patterns
- Undo and Revert functions
Hi-Note includes both import and export functions. The import function
copies memos into Hi-Note from the built-in Memo Pad application. The export
function allows you to transfer your notes back to the Memo Pad if desired.
If your handheld has an infrared port, you can use it to "beam" text
or pictures to another handheld. Hi-Note can beam a single note, a small
group of notes or all your notes in one easy step.
Hi-Note is distributed as shareware. You may use this software on a
trial basis for 30 days. To continue using it beyond that period, you
must pay a registration fee of US$20.
Hi-Note is available in English and Japanese language versions.
