Whether it's recording a telephone number when the Phone Book is far away, saving an URL to reuse or just copying pieces of text for editing, there are lots of examples. And just as many solutions: open Notepad, use A Personal Information Manager, or use some other programs for creating and saving text. But all those options are slow. Even a PIM is a "heavy" class program. And before you use it to make rough notes, you must create a new file or find a place to write without creating a "litter" of files or damaging important work.
Flashnote was created for such cases. When you need a rough copy to save or to process some pieces of a text, Flashnote is small, quick and convenient. Press the shortcut-key combination and a rough copy is on the screen in a flash of a second. Press ESC and the program hides. It's that simple. You don't need to find a place for text, to run Notepad or your PIM. Everything gets done quickly, simply and in a more convenient way.
Flashnote is NOT a personal information manager (PIM). Flashnote is NOT a substitute for Notepad or some other text editor. Flashnote is a fast rough copy utility that can be used any time during work process and without fear of damaging important data. You'll find it a real help for your computer work.
