I was a long time user of Treepad but the Linux version was not being updated so I changed to cherrytree quite a while ago (2 years ?) and I have been very pleased. I use it to keep a logbook of various PC’s i.e. Software and Hardware changes. I find cherrytree very easy to use and fairly flexible. I currently have several independent logbooks although I could convert to a single logbook and the portable version, but as yet I have not made the change. Any comments gratefully received.
But , there is always a “but”, I do miss one feature of Treepad and that is the ability to make named backup copies. I note that the software makes copies
Rebuild.ctb latest version
Rebuild.ctb~ next oldest
Rebuild.ctb~~ 2nd down the line
I would like Treepad to be able to save a named backup eg. in a separate directory, I normally just increment the name-
etc. and I do it manually.
I currently use the Save As command but I can forget to do it or more frequently forget to re-open the main file “Rebuild.ctb” using the recent documents feature, thereby editing the wrong file.
I am also looking at storing all of my files (bits of information from various places) but these are all .pdfs. I do not need to edit these files but I do need to find them easily and preferably in one location. A related need is to search the main file probably using the title line. If anybody has a suggestion how to do this with Cherrytree. The problem is that one cannot add pdf files directly.
Best Wishes and Thanks to Guispen for an excellent and very useful program
