Let's talk about note-taking strategies. Some of us do it the old fashioned way, using a trusty old pen and paper. Others jot down notes using word processing applications, others use text editors... but the problem with all of these methods is that none of them provide a way for you to connect all of your information together.

Consider Wikipedia. Within each Wikipedia entry are bunches and bunches of links to other related entries. Together they form a more complete picture of whatever you're researching.

Imagine how empowering it could be to have a Wikipedia for your life!

Now you do! As you use ZuluPad Pro to record all of your important notes, ideas, data snippets, contact information, favorite urls, research topics and so on, the program will automatically create links between your topics, just like a wiki. Imagine jotting an appointment down in ZuluPad Pro, having the name of the person turn into a link like magic, and then clicking on that link to find every little piece of information about them that you've ever entered into ZuluPad Pro!

It's simple to get started with ZuluPad Pro. Whenever you start a new note, just right-click and create a link from it, then continue business as usual. From that point on, whenever that topic (name, place, location, anything) comes up in a note that you're writing, it will instantly be turned into a link back to your original note. No more flipping back and forth between notepad pages, or frantically trying to find an old sticky note that fell behind your desk! All of your information is instantly linked together and immediately accessible.

Using ZuluPad Pro, you'll instantly find your note-taking to be more useful and efficient. You'll be amazed at how much more information you'll retain!

Robert Chan Can I insert images in ZuluPad Pro?

_*_ Looks interesting, but my concern is that on the official forums there is a post asking if the program is essentially dead.

Not sure if pasting links is allowed, but these are from the publishers official forums.

Post is here: http://zulupad.gersic.com...php?t=1071

Also, the last update seems to have been in 2008.

See post here: http://zulupad.gersic.com....php?t=509

It would be discouraging to buy a program that will not be updated to keep up with changes or OS versions.

I hope the developer can shed some light on these important areas.

Tom Gersic Hey Guys. Yes, you can insert images into ZuluPad Pro. The program isn't defunct or dead, but you're right, I haven't released an update in awhile. I continue to support users who have issues with the app.

Thanks,
Tom

Stephane M Thanks Tom for the update.
So you are still supporting it but are you planning on starting again some developments in the near future?
Thank you.

Robert Chan Curious about the Pro version (as I cannot try it) : Does each tab have its own "index"? Or is the "index" the same for all tabs?

Tom Gersic Hi Stephane and Robert. Unfortunately, I can't really say when I'll be releasing another version. When it comes, it will be free for existing users, but I don't have a date that I can give you right now.

Robert, each tab uses the same document index.

Thanks,
Tom

Tazzie I am interested, and I appreciate your honesty about the release of a new version. However, I am rather concerned as to where the guarantee on that new version is. Since the last update was 2008 and it is now 2011 and you have no estimate for a new version, how can we know for sure there will be a new version? Is it fair to ask anyone to pay for this right now when there is no guarantee and no recent history to back it up?

Tom Gersic Hi Tazzie,

That's fair. I'm certainly not asking anyone to pay now for an expected new version. I hope that anyone who buys the current version will find it to be worth their money.

Thanks,
Tom

Robert Chan Just purchased Zulupad Pro but very disappointed to find that Chinese characters are not displaying correctly in the Pro version. (Chinese characters display correctly in the free version) . Is there something I can do to make it display Chinese correctly?

Jim Shields Tom - You really need some screenshots of the Pro version on your website. In essence there's no demo or trial version of the Pro version (since I gather that it is very different from the free version) and I want to see what it looks like before considering buying it. Others want the same - see Robert's question above.

John H I just purchased the pro version. It looks the same as the free version. The word processing functions are almost the same. except you can underline, bold and highlight text. Also bullets.

You cannot have mixed font sizes within in a page.

All formatting options are done with the control key.

You can insert a picture either by an insert command or pasting from the clipboard. There is no resizing of the picture once inserted, and only one line word wrap to the right of the picture.

Each page is a separate tab. You do have global document search. Of course you can do Wiki linking which is the strength of the program.

The program is a standalone executable, meaning you can run it from a thumb drive, or in my case from an online folder synchronized to both my computers(DropBox). It is also a very light weight and basic program that really does not need a lot of updates.

I was hoping to find a lightweight word processor with tabbed pages. Something between MS Wordpad and Open Office Word Processor. This is not it. This is more between MS Notepad and MS Wordpad.

This appears to be a good Personal Wiki program if you need to insert graphics. There are numerous Wiki Programs out there, all with the very limited text formatting. None could accept pictures like Zulupad.

I'm not sure if I will use this for my research journals due to the limited text size formatting issue. I like to have bold headings and reduce large blocks of text to very small size. I will have to play with the program.

I find the face Icon to be a bit too creepy.

DrTeeth The developer posted in Apr 13 2010 that he has very little time to work on this. With that and no updates since mid-2008, *I* would consider the program dead and though seemingly useful, won't buy it.

Mitchell Kastner I downloaded the trial and created some pages but I do not see the tabs that correspond to the name of the pages

Tom Gersic Mitchell,

There is no trial. There is a free version, and it does not have tabs. In the pro version the tabs work basically as they do in a web browser. You can open links in a new tab if desired.

Rick Edwards Win7 compatible? (I know Vista compatible is more restrictive, so they say, but I've had XP programs work on Vista that DO NOT work on Win7.)

Tom Gersic All: If you don't get the automated download instructions when you purchase, check your spam folder. Sometimes it ends up there.

Thanks,

Rick Stone Hi Tom

Can you outline the differences between the open source and the Pro version? Usually a site offers a comparison that shows what the differences are.
