MyNotex is a free software for Gnu/Linux useful to take and to manage textual notes, also a large number of them. Notes are gathered under different subjects and are made by a title, a date, a tags (keywords) list and a free-length text. This may be formatted: it is possible to change the font name, size and color of a selected text and of its background, and also to set bold, italic, underline and strike-through; the text may have pictures within it. The software can manage paragraph alignment, bullets and numbered lists with automatic indentation. A single file of MyNotex contains various subjects and notes.
For example, MyNotex could be useful to:

take notes during meetings, lessons, conferences, etc;
write and keep ideas, memos, letters, reports, agendas, projects, etc;
write and keep encrypted reports of confidential meetings;
write and keep series of lessons and conferences;
write and keep a diary (daily or not);
write and keep an archive of pdf articles (attach each pdf file to a note under a thematic subject, insert its author and its title as the note's title, its abstract as the note's text and the proper tags; in this way it will be possible to search in the abstract, in the author/title and in the tags of the pdf file);
write and keep archive of source code (for programmers);
write and keep reviews of books, movies, etc.
collect many simple written documents (no images, footnotes, headings, etc.) in one file;
create an archive of pictures, with the possibility to store the original file as attachment and a smaller version of it in the text of the notes, with proper explanations.
create an archive of online texts (articles of web magazines, blogs, etc.) copying them from the browser;
manage an encrypted list of passwords;
manage a to-do list (task list);
share notes and documents with others.

What is new in version 1.2.1

Possibility to insert images in the text of the notes, stored in the directory of attachments.
Zoom of the text with Ctrl + mouse wheel, or Ctrl + +/-.
Ctrl + Shift + T to insert or switch to "activity to do" symbol.
Ctrl + Shift + R to insert or switch to "activity done" symbol.
Icons for cut, copy, copy as html and paste.
Popup menu for cut, copy, copy as html and paste.
Send the current note to browser (for printing).

The other main features of the software are:

various attachments (files of every kind) for each note, zipped and stored in a directory with the same name and path of the MyNotex file in use and automatically managed by the software; the number of attachments is limited only by the available disk space;
encryption of the text of the selected notes with AES algorithm;
search for subjects, notes (also in the text), attachments, dates and tags (keywords);
search for more than one tag at a time (in OR condition) and for a range of dates;
list of tags used in the current file, to insert them in a new note or in the search fields with double click;
moving a note with possible related attachments from a subject to another;
importation and exportation of single subjects with the related notes and attachments from and to another file of MyNotex;
direct importation an OpenOffice.org Writer or LibreOffice Writer file;
importation from Tomboy and Gnote notes;
opening of the text of the current note in OpenOffice.org Writer or LibreOffice Writer (useful also to print the note);
export data in HTML format, which can be easily opened with a word processor like OpenOffice.org Writer or LibreOffice Writer;
paragraph alignment and indentation of lists;
possibility to link a note to another note;
addition of attachments with drag and drop (also more files at a time).

Finally it is possible to synchronize two different files of MyNotex so that the new, the changed and the deleted subjects, notes and attachments in each one of them are mirrored in the other; at the end of the process, the two files and attachments directories are identical. This feature allows to modify two or more files of MyNotex offline and then connect to the LAN or the Internet and synchronize them, also through a cloud services like Dropbox or Ubuntu One.
