4. Is Notenik Right for You? ↑

4.11 User Interface

Notenik has a very traditional user interface. If you have been using a Mac for any length of time, then it will probably seem quite straightforward to you. Unlike a lot of modern apps these days, it does not try to look like a Web app, or like something you might see on a phone or a tablet. It has menus and windows and toolbars and tabs and buttons and keyboard shortcuts, and all of these are nicely labeled and in plain sight (unless you choose to hide them).

The main window for a Collection is split into two sides.

The left side shows the complete set of Notes in the Collection.

The right side shows the single, currently selected Note.

The left side has two tabs.

The first tab on the left shows you a simple list of the Notes in your Collection, sorted by one of several available schemes.

The second tab on the left shows you an outline view, with your Notes grouped into the tags that you have assigned to them.

The right side also has two tabs.

The first tab on the right displays the selected Note, with field labels and values, and with the body of the note nicely styled according to its Markdown formatting.

The second tab on the right allows you to edit all of the fields for the selected Note.

You can use either of the tabs on the left to select a particular Note to be displayed (and optionally edited) on the right.
