HyperNote Pro

HyperNote Pro is a HyperCard stack used to annotate text. It can also create true hypertext links between itself and other documents or applications.

Simply create a new HyperNote Pro stack, import a text file, and add pop-up notes, pictures, and/or hypertext links to the text. The resulting stack can be distributed to anybody with HyperCard 2.0 and they will be able to read or edit your notes and pictures. They will be able to link to other documents if the documents are available.

Here are some uses for HyperNote Pro. Context sensitive help can be created for applications. News or journal articles could be imported and your opinions added. Business reports could be enhances with graphs. Resumes could go into greater detail without overwhelming the reader. Students could turn in papers and teachers could comment on the text.

Another neat thing about HyperNote Pro is it self-replicating. By selecting "New HN..." and choosing a text-file, HyperNote Pro creates a copy of itself except with the text of the chosen file.

HyperNote Pro is free. It requires HyperCard 2.0 to run. It is available at http://infomotions.com/musings/hypernote/HyperNote.sea.hqx.
