I have used this as my primary notes for 7 years. I have tried moving to others like apple notes, joplin notes, and one note. The best part is its simplicity yet feature rich notes. I only recently started using it with Git. I now can go back to previous versions of notes.
This app carries the spirit of LINUX. Simple interface yet a lot of useful features under the hood. Since using a computer is all about organizing information and this app helps you organize information in a very, very good way, I would give this app six stars if that was possible. In my office, I use OneNote as part of MS Teams and despite the huge investment by MS in OneNote, Zim in my view solves to challenge of organizing information much better than OneNote. If you haven't tried Zim yet, you should, and if you like it as much as I do please consider supporting the gentleman behind this app.
I've been using this for years (2014), and it was worthy my time to register to the Linux Mint Community to say so. It's cross platform, simple, efficient, not too much, so it's easy to complete your knowlegebase in a heirarchical way. I like the fact that it's character based, but you link off it, and embed some graphics. It's OneNote, but it's free and it works.
Super good alternative of one note
I found this enormously useful as a way of linking numerous interlinked thoughts, ideas and facts, especially with my application for French nationality. By cross referencing every date, fact and idea I needed to learn, it was easy to continuously test myself until word perfect and to export the data as html to use on other devices. I thoroughly recommend this program as a way of learning a lot of complex data.
Very good program. I prefer it to other solutions, like Evernote, for example. What you write down in Zim doesn't go to the cloud, it is yours. You can store any amount of information, like videos, pictures, you don't have any restriction in size. It is a very good way to store and retrieve the information. Very good search capabilities. A great program!!!!
Best note taking app I've used so far.
This is the best note taking app ever! The tab index makes it super easy to find specific notes and the html export is pretty cool
Useful - I have each "folder" on the left representing a real life storage container and the contents are listed and searchable. CAUTION - the search is case sensitive (on my system at least)
More capable than tomboy. Using it via PPA like @feluxe, though.
Very helpful tool! Missing tables tough.. UPDATE: Found Tables: Install 0.65 and activate Table Plugin. Awsome!
Util, potente, práctico. Tomo mis notas y luego exporto a HTML para verlas en el tablet.
I use it more than pluma now, i love that it saves in txt extension in its folder structure, would be nice to print the entire notebook with one click
Gutes Notizprogramm zum Anlegen von Ankreuzlisten usw., Automatische Speicherung
I like the idea, but it is a bit buggy on my laptop.
simple notice taking tool, based on text files; text import filter for M$ onenote files are missing for an easy upgrade onenote to ZIM-Desktopwiki
great note taker all written in Gtk and Python. Works well under XFCE desktop. Good features in a neat package.
Love this, just wish there was better control of text formatting, and an Android version. Also would be nice to be able to resize images once they have been pasted. Even without these features, this is an incredibly valuable too.
The perfect note / wiki program. All data is stored in readable text files per page.
