Some tips on using Notefile
- If you have a note open, click the note count at the bottom to return to the list.
- If you need to, you can click the text at the bottom of the notes list to sync immediately.
- If you make the window large enough, or click the Full Screen button, you can see your list of notes and edit the selected note at the same time.
- Click the “…” button and choose Delete to remove a note. A note will also be deleted if you remove all of its text. You can recover recently deleted notes by searching for them.
- Notefile can appear in the Dock or the menu bar. Choose Preferences from the Notefile menu, or click the gear icon and change the “Show Notefile in” setting.
- If you like you can set up a keyboard shortcut that brings Notefile to the front, so you can open your notes quickly from any app. Choose Preferences from the Notefile menu, or click the gear icon and change the “Keyboard shortcut” setting. Try something like F13, or fn+F4.
