What is KeyNote NF?
KeyNote NF is a flexible, multi-featured tabbed notebook, based on Windows standard RichEdit control. It's always accessible with a single keypress, even if you work in another application.
The basic idea in KeyNote NF is that you can include many separate notes within a single file. This means that you do not need to open several files - for most purposes it is enough to create only one file and hold all your notes inside it. With the addition of the tree-type notes, you now have a three-dimensional notebook: many notes within one file and a multi-level, nested pages within a single note. Keynotes interface and behavior are extremely configurable. KeyNote is the only information manager that offers a combination of simple and tree-type notes, rich text editor, ability to mix freely many notes of different types in a single file and secure encryption. This makes KeyNote the most flexible and one of the most powerful applications of this kind currently available. Some functions, such as "virtual nodes", per-file configuration settings, multiple backups or WordWeb integration are unique and, to my knowledge, not supported by any other notebook program, freeware or shareware.
With powerful text formatting capabilities, easily navigable interface and additional features such as styles, macros, plugins, and templates, KeyNote is has become the favorite note keeper, diary, outliner, knowledge base and information manager for thousands of users.

I've used KEYNOTE for more than 8 years. Great outliner software. stable and 100% free. Some issues on slow response when you paste a large text and content into a new note.
this is the most important program on my computer. totally dependent on it. been using it for over 10 years when it was just keynote. this is the reason i don't consider switching over to any other operating system besides windows. it does run decently in linux using wine. my dream is to have this program availabe on my android smartphone. or an android tablet. i just want this program with me wherever i am. yes, i have tried over 20 other program of this nature. but i can't find any to rival it. the most intriguing but far more cumbersome program is PersonalBrain. personalbrain allows me to store my info in a more nonlinear fashion. but the interface isn't as fast and obvious as keynote. love this program.
Even in 2020 I am still using KeyNote NF. It is the fastest way to set up tree notes. Very intuitive way of adding child & sibling notes. I like the quick link to open a website & image links.. Search the entire set of multiple pages like a data base, means I can throw all sorts of notes & links in any page & find it again months later, effortlessly. A bit dated .. but was way ahead of its time & still very useful.
Disclaimer: I only use Keynote to take basic text notes and I haven't tried any other note-taking software. With that said, Keynote NF fully satisfies my note-taking needs so I don't think I'll have to install any others.
Other than that one complaint about shortcuts, it's very cool and I would definitely recommend it!
In short, KeyNote NF is the best, most full-featured tree outliner software that is portable, less than a 5 MB download, and consumes less than 5 MB of memory.
This is a wonderfully powerful and flexible application. I've tried scores of Personal Information Managers (PIMs), and nothing beats KeyNote NF. I used the original version for several years, then switched to a commercial product because of my work. I'm back using the newly enhanced version (NF) now, and it's even better. I love the fact that it runs without installing to the registry. It's fast, totally logical and easy to learn. I like it better than : Nomad PIM, PIM Xtreme, Chandler, PW-Notes, Evernote, Tolon Notekeeper, Debrief, and InfoMagic.
