CherryTree replaced KEYNOTE NF in my laptop because CherryTree had a better Search function, better editing features and is frequently updated. Excellent auto-backup of your CherryTree database. 100% free and no ads.

great app, however not so reliable so far

about CherryTree · · Helpful Not helpful

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

Good open source alternative to OneNote or Evernote for Linux as well as Windows

about CherryTree · · Helpful Not helpful

While looking for an alternative to OneNote for something to work on Linux as well as Windows I have tried a large number of notetaking applications and CherryTree provided the best fit for me. You might want to take a little time to think through how you want to use tags and to create terms for use in its search function - but once you do it is very flexible and powerful.

One thing that is important to me and that is not supported in OneNote but is supported in CherryTree is support for relative file paths. One the other hand CherryTree's drag and drop capability is much more limited in comparison to OneNote's - you are left to use copy and paste to take content and sometimes links into Cherrytree.

Of course Cherrytree does not have a cloud and mobile version but OneNote does - albeit one that is much more limited in its functionality.
