Pads X Overview
The major features of Pads X can be described in a few sentences.
The basic function of Pads is similar to the Note Pad utility from OS 9 [See Note Pad Functions for more].
A page in Pads X can hold any amount of text, limited only by available memory. Text may contain any combination of fonts of any size or style. [See Pads X Text for more]
A title may optionally be assigned to each page. A menu button next to the title allows a page to be selected by title. [See Pads X Titles for more]
Pages can be grouped by category. Initially there is a miscellaneous category named "Notes" which always exists. You may create as many additional categories as you want. A single page may belong to more than one category if you wish! A pop up menu in the document window allows you to change categories quickly and easily. [See Pads X Categories for more]
Any page may become a "tear-off" page (similar to the notes in Stickies) by clicking on the tear-off bar directly above the text. The original note remains in the Pads document, and closing the tear-off window does not delete the original page. Any changes made to the page in the document window are refected in the tear-off page, and vice-versa. [See Tear-off Pages for more]
Pages can be "marked" individually or by other criteria such as category or content. Many useful operations can then be performed on the group of marked pages: they can be viewed, printed, deleted, saved to a separate document, etc. [See Marking Pages for more]
Pads X documents may be password protection. Protection can be limited to specific individual pages if desired. [See Pads X Encryption for more]
