No. For such things you should use a full-featured word processor like LibreOffice Writer.
Yes, as it can be reread very often here. All depends from the quality and content of the original post. Spam is spam.

This is the second Spam post in between of 2 days by a person, who writes nothing than spam. Stop him!
I hate spam.
You can do the following:
Enter in the search engine of your choice something like:
Sounds like a corrupted CT configuration. Try this (CT must be closed):
Open your home in your file manager and make hidden files visible, usually this can be toggled by pressing ctrl-h. Now enter the subdirectory .config (note the leading dot) and rename the subfolder cherrytree inside to something else, e. g. cherrytree.renamed. Now start CT again.
Note, that all your configuration accommodations will be gone.
I cannot answer the question regarding risks from own experience, because I do not see the sense of doing this. In general: if you do regularly a backup of your CT file, than you will be able to revert to the previous version in case needed.
Besides that: I wonder where the sense is in attaching such byte monsters. CT is not meant to be a file container like e. g. a ZIP file. Attaching huge files gives in any case the disadvantage, that every backup will take much more time and more disk space, as those attachments will get backed up every time, even if the attachment itself has not been altered in any way. Putting a link to a file appears to me as the more appropriate method
Some years ago we found during testing, that with attachments in the size of some MB CherryTree became terribly slow, partially behind usability. I do not remember the details of the discussion at that times, but I remember, that I found and reported the problem during beta tests.
The details for the answer depend from your OS. In Linux there is the file config.cfg in ~/.config/cherrytree. Note: ~ is a shortcut for the current user’s home, file / folder names starting with a dot are by default hidden.
I cannot answer the question for Windows. I assume, that the file name for the configuration is the same, the storage path is possibly somewhere in Application Data.
Don’t miss to close CT before you do the copy operation.
This is not possible and I doubt, that this could be useful. If you browser – and read – the nodes, but you do not see, whether the read content is really in the open node or in one of the child notes, what should be the meaning of child nodes? Such a feature will easily lead to confusion, I vote against.
If you are unsure, if a content is in a parent or in a child node, use the function to search in current and child nodes.
I think, that there is actually only 1 label needed: In front of the 2 boxes the word “Time” (respective the translation for it). With the colon (good idea) between the 2 boxes it should be obvious, what they are good for.
Nevertheless, let us keep patient. Of course, the family has always be to be the number one. Regarding the switch to gtk 3 / python: There are a number of cases, where giuspen said in answering a feature request, that with the libraries of the old development platform some things are not doable. My biggest fear is, that this switch will introduce a number of bugs, so that afterwards another amount of time will be needed to sort them out. Doing the switch in hurry is IMO not a good idea.
(And as long as the label does not exist, we have the forum to answer such questions.)
This is currently not doable, but it might be a good idea to add this functionality. E g. pressing the esc key should cancel the search.
Regarding marking of modification: CT does not preserve a history of the data, so it cannot know, what has been modified; consequently it cannot mark anything inside of the search result window (without a search expression).
One hint more regarding the time setting for the searches: If you open the search dialog, you will find, that inside of the date / time buttons the preset time is always the current time of your system. Close the dialog and reopen it 1 or more minutes later and you will find, that the preset time has changed accordingly. – If you now click on the date / time button in the search dialogue to change the values, the time fields at the bottom have the same content as the button, which you clicked.
Regarding ppa and notification about new versions:
The old ppa showed already in the past to be rather unreliable and so giuspen added an own ppa 1 or 2 years ago. This ppa has shown to be always up to date (no surprise, as author and maintainer are identical). You can anyway activate in CT to search for new versions in the last section of the preferences; as long as a functioning ppa is present, this does not make much sense for Linux systems, but it is doable. It might be of interest for people, who use CT as well with Linuux and with Windows.
