Could you recommend a good note taking app (like Obsidian)?

Submitted by gaveitatry on March 6, 2022 - 4:18pm

Today, a friend from Denmark told me about Obsidian. But because I wanted a portable app, I first tried something called Joplin. I didn't know Joplin supported HTML like , and I was frustrated that I couldn't make additional line breaks, so I switched back to Obsidian. I learned Obsidian allows HTML. Then I spent a few hours trying to make Obsidian portable. I made it portable using a .bat launch file that someone had created. But I couldn't really pin the .bat launch file to the taskbar. I mean, I could.

[Fixed] QOwnNotes will not install

Submitted by Swwright on January 10, 2022 - 7:41pm

Updater says an update for QOwnNotes is available. Updater says new version is 22.1.2.

Updater downloaded a 27,484kB file, then downloaded (another?) file of the same size, then issued this alert: "The downloaded copy of QOwnNotes is not valid and can not be installed. This could be due to an incomplete download or other network issue. Please try running the updater again when complete."

Identical results on two different PCs in two different locations.

Will PDF-XChange Editor still be portable after registration?

Submitted by WirlyWirly on November 21, 2021 - 9:02pm


Like the title says, I'm looking at purchasing a license for PDF-XChange Editor, but I'm curious if registering it will do something to no longer make it fully portable. I'm assuming not, but just wanted to double check to make sure.

Thanks in advance!

[Fixed] Sumatra PDF is 32bit but should be 64bit

Submitted by daniel_schaaaf on October 7, 2021 - 3:38am

The system requirements for Sumatra PDF are "Windows Vista, 7, 8, 10, 11", which suggests the 64bit version of Sumatra PDF. However, only the 32bit version is included in the PAF.

Due to memory restrictions, the 32bit version of Sumatra PDF cannot open big files (either one huge file or several big files). This is a problem when Sumatra PDF is used as a comic book reader. High quality cbr/cbz are often several hundred MB in size, and some are >1GB.

GnuCash Preferences Reset

Submitted by paulvp on October 2, 2021 - 6:47pm

I was recently prompted to update GnuCash to version 4.8 and did so. When I subsequently launched the program I found that my preferences had been removed, presumbaly reset to default. Also, GnuCash did not open my database by default, I had to manually open it (File > Open...).

I've got an idea this may have occurred in the past but I don't think it's happened with every GnuCash Update. That is, my preferences are usually not affected by an update. My question is: is this (preferences being reset) an expected behaviour with version 4.8, or a glitch?

Unable To Edit Word Documents!

Submitted by Nailmoor22 on June 12, 2021 - 2:38am

Hello Friends. This is my first post in this forum. Recently I am suffering from an issue with my computer. Yesterday I saved some word documents from the office on my home computer by pen drive and I can't edit or modify them in any way. I don't understand why this is happening, and how this problem can be solved. Can anyone help me with this?
