Is your note-taking stuck in the 20th century? Are you still scribbling bits of important information on sticky notes, envelopes, and pieces of scrap paper, only to lose track of them at the most inconvenient time?

If this is you, I urge you to check out the Tree Notes Note Organizer. With Tree Notes you can keep all of your scribbles in electronic form, and organize your notes in a collapsible/expandable tiered tree hierarchy! All of your notes are kept in one place, in one file, but organized so neatly and intuitively you'll wonder how you ever got along without it.

Tree Notes is mapped to a hotkey, so the app will sit quietly in your System Tray until a hot thought hits your brain. When you need it, hit the key, and Tree Notes pops up, ready to record your wisdom. Jot your note, hit the key, and shooop! Tree Notes retreats back to the System Tray.

All of the formatting options that you're used to are here - bold, underline, italics, justification, fonts, and font sizes. Have a particularly fantastic idea? Format it as bold, in red, 26 point Verdana! Go crazy with your note-taking self.

Any of your notes (or all of them) can be exported as plain text, rich text, or HTML. Think about it - with Tree Notes, your thoughts can easily be emailed to someone else, or posted to the internet on your website for the world to see!

Please note folks, the NEW version of Tree Notes (2.50) adds numbered bullet lists, multi-level lists (outlines), a spellchecker, 100 extra tree icons, improved find/replace functions, the ability to import and export extra formats (DOC, DOCX, ODT, HTML, MHT, ePub), improved printing, and a new PDF export function. It also makes it possible to paste images into your notes!

govertz Is the spellchecker only for English, or is it possible to add other languages?

SFuji Is tree notes portable?

Andrew Tsai A very neat, and easily visible GUI, and easy to use note-taker. One of the only 3 note-taking softwares that I had considered to purchase a few years back. At the price offered now, I must have purchased it before. But honestly, I find the regular price quite high, finally ending in purchasing Scrivener. An improvement can also be done to the left pane (outline bullets) by having a popup of the outline when one hovers the mouse cursor over it.

Jiri Novotny govertz, you can download additional languages for the spellchecker, a list of supported languages is available here:

SFuji, it can be portable. Once you install Tree Notes, you can click menu File - Deploy to USB Flash Drive. You'll end up with fully portable Tree Notes this way.

SFuji Thank you. If I purchase the 3 pack and have a copy on my desktop and on USB drive, is can the data be synchronized easily. Not just copy. If I add info on my home Tree Notes, and also add info at work, say, once a week can I synchronize the two?

Roger McIntosh You refer to the "new" version as 2.5, but the website states 3.xx as the newest version. Is this V3 or V2.5?

Jiri Novotny SFuji, all your data is stored in a local database file. You can think of these database files as of .docx files for Microsoft Word. You always edit/view the file that is open.

So if you always run Tree Notes from the USB drive whenever you're using your desktop or work computer, you'll see all the changes there as the database is on the USB drive.

A suitable solution would be to store your database file in a Dropbox or SkyDrive folder and make it the default database on all of your computers. The only downside is that if you use Dropbox/SkyDrive you can't open the database file from multiple computers at once (you always have to close Tree Notes on one computer before you access the database from another computer). Other than that, it should work flawlessly.

There is currently no custom cloud sync available for Tree Notes. We offer that in Swift To-Do List, which is a much more complex program. It's possible Tree Notes will allow you to sync in the future, not anytime soon though.

K. Christoph Nice to see you !

Thanks !

Jiri Novotny I suggest re-downloading the setup, save it somewhere (your desktop will work) and then run it. You could right-click the file and select Run as an administrator.

I believe that will help, no one else reported similar issue yet.

Ricky M Hi, I don't understand why more than one license is needed if the app is portable. What am I missing? Thanks.

Peter Martin Can it split notes,rearrange the split notes and join different/all the notes?
Jun 26 2014 at 1:16am Copy Link
Jiri Novotny Ricky, if you deploy it on a flash drive and carry it around then you're fine with one license. However if you wish to keep Tree Notes installed on multiple computers the 1-User-3-PC Pack or multiple licenses come in handy.

Peter, you can only do these actions manually. There are no designated tools for splitting/joining notes. There is a 30 day free trial once you install Tree Notes, so you can take a look.

Matt Hi Jiri,

I found two bugs:

1. The 'Toggle Highlight' / 'Back Color' in the text editor does not toggle to OFF.
Once you turn on highlighting, you can't toggle it off. To turn off the highlighter, you have to click on the Back Color drop-down, click on 'Font Back Color...', select 'white' and then click on 'OK'.

2. (a strange one) The 'Open Calendar' link and button on the bottom left does not work. The tool tip for this link/button speaks of tasks and due dates. When you right-click on this link, you are offered several more options concerning calendars and due dates, and none of them work.

This 'Open Calendar' link & button combo doesn't always appear. It just seems to do its own thing.

I didn't think Tree Notes 3 was even supposed to have a calendar?

I also have installed your Daily To-Do List demo. Maybe they are conflicting.

I tried a clean re-install on my Win 8.1 PC and the same thing happens.

Thank you.

Mike Shanahan Interesting program. It has a lot without it being one of those "kitchen sink" programs. What really interested me was the output functions, especially as ePub. However, when I downloaded the trial, all I could seem to "export" to was html. How do you create an ePub?

Again, nice software!

Jiri Novotny Matt, thanks you for your observations. I'll take a look at the highlighting toggle, we should fix it in one of the minor updates. Tree Notes don't have a calendar panel, that sounds strange. So all you did was install Daily To-Do List and then Tree Notes on Windows 8.1? Could you please send your answer along with a screenshot to You can find the change-log here: We don't plan for version 4 yet, we're focusing on Swift To-Do List sync/mobile functions right now.

Jiri Novotny Mike, don't click menu File - Print or Export, that's for exporting the whole tree. If you wish to export a note into a different format (such as ePub), you can find the export button in the menu directly above the notes section, it's a green floppy-disk.

Jiri Novotny A working link for the change-log -

I can't edit the post with the broken link anymore.

Matt Hi Jiri,

Thank you for your reply.

I've sent you a detailed email explaining the above problem, along with three screenshots.

Also, the highlight toggle issue, mentioned above, occurs with your Daily To-Do List 4 program as well.

Thank you.
