is a Freeware Personal Organizer, Text Editor, & PIM software. There is a version for Linux and a version for Windows.
TreePad Lite (freeware) and TreePad Asia (freeware) are small and powerful personal database programs, only 465 Kb in size. They allow you to store all your notes, emails, texts, hyperlinks, etc. into one or multiple databases. With the look and feel of the familiar Windows explorer, editing, storing, browsing, searching and retrieving your data can not be easier!
TreePad can be run directly from a floppy, if necessary, including data. To find any article you previously created or imported, you can browse the tree, in the same way as you browse directories/folders in the Windows explorer. You can also use the internal search engine to find any piece of information swiftly.
While TreePad Asia supports non-western/Asian fonts through the Windows IME system, TreePad Lite for is made for Western users. Both TreePad versions run on Windows XP, Vista, 2000, 95, 98, ME, NT.
Articles and nodes
The usual database programs are not good at storing unstructured information, TreePad excells at this! It lets you define and impose your own structure.
All data is contained in 'articles'; an article is a text shown in the right pane of the program window. Any article is contained in a 'node' which is the most basic part of the tree (left pane).
To find a previously created or imported article, you can browse the tree, or use the internal search engine.
You can create any tree structure you want! It is very easy to add nodes/articles to the tree, delete nodes/articles, move whole sub-trees around using 'drag-and-drop', etc. You can even copy/paste complete subtrees including all contained articles.
Support for plain-text hyperlinks to: TreePad nodes/articles, files on your local harddisk, Web pages, email addresses, newsgroups and FTP sites.
TreePad ASIA supports most non-western languages, like Japanese, Chinese, Arabic, Russian through a feature called 'IME mode'.
Use your harddisk more efficiently
TreePad allows you to store all your notes, emails, texts, hyperlinks, etc. into one or multiple databases which use up much less disk space than storing your data in a large number of separate documents.
Print, tree sort, minimize to system-tray, text find-replace, stay on top, a flexible and customizable toolbar system, move nodes using drag-and-drop, copy/paste subtrees, import .txt, .csv, .hjt files, export subtrees and articles to .html, .txt, .hjt files, print subtrees and articles, etc.
Usage and installation
TreePad Lite is freeware, it won't cost you anything, it runs on Windows XP, Vista, 2000, 9x, NT. The program is small in size (only a few 100 Kb), it does not need any special dlls, drivers or system files which can mess up your system. This means that TreePad can run directly from floppy - including database - without installing anything! This is extremely useful if you wish to easily access your notes on other computers as well. Automatic installation is also supported (simply run install.exe), as well as manual installation (just copy the TreePad files into a directory of your choice).
TreePad is powerful
The program might be small in size, but it is able to store tens of thousands of articles. Each article can contain a large number of characters. Articles can be linked to other articles using text hyperlinks. A TreePad data file can contain many megabytes of data. You can create and use any number of different TreePad data files. This means that the capacity of storing notes is only limited by the size of your harddisk! An internal search engine is included to find any data item immediately.
