Notebook for Mac
« on: Mar 21, 2007, 02:24 am »
So I was just reading about this software called Notebook for Mac. Has anyone used this before? If it works the way it looks, it would be a great way to have an electronic "book" with the tabs and everything. Any thoughts?

Can't say I have heard about it, HOWEVER: Word 2004 (the latest Word for OSX) has "notebook" as one of the layouts, which has tabs, which I have thought of using for organising paperwork, although I have never gotten round to it.

I like using notebook in Microsoft office for Mac.  I use it to take notes for each department during production meetings.  Then I change the style back to page view and it prints my chosen header and separates each department on a page.

If you're going to share with a PC user, make sure you take it out of Notebook style, could cause problems...

What software are you talking about SMJorge?

I just found out what this is - Circus Ponies-notebook 2.0 Mac Os.  It is similar software to Microsoft's notebook feature in Word.  If you ave Microsoft Word or Office, I wouldn't spend $40 for it.

I downloaded the demo version and have been using it today. It is actually a really nifty app. I know that word has a notebook version, however it's not the same. Or at least not that I am aware of. With this app I can truly make an electronic version of a prompt book with tabs, all of my rehearsal reports in one place, contact info, etc., etc. The only downside if anything is that in order to be able to do that, it has to be pdf, but since macs have a built in pdf converter, not a big deal... We'll see how I like it as the show progresses.

Notebooks seems to get good, reputable reviews. I'll be interested to hear what you make of it. Anyone else using it? It really does look like it may be a great app for stage managers.
