CherryTree Comments

great app, however not so reliable so far

Positive Comment by alter817
about CherryTree Jan 2017

The behavior is not always logical and obvious(e.g. when creating a node - it appears that 'selected node', the cursor - may be "hidden" in folded tree, in that case you would not know where exactly you've just created a node)
Also the search doesnt always work well, i.e. doesnt return a result
and so on

but
even with all those issues this is by far the best app of such kind

Finally!

Comment by wangych
about CherryTree Jun 2011

cherrytree can provide programming language syntax highlighting and basic table editing, which is not provided in Zim Desktop. But I like more the way in Zim to organize pages and files, which provides one-to-one map between page and file, while its editing capability is limited, in the attachment folder it can hold any different type of files, so you can edit different format in attachment files.
