Hi, everybody!

Iím looking for software that would allows me managing a lot of my notes. I wish I could paste a text from web, record source url and cross link notes.

I saw something like this in similar Wiki, where editing content and linking is quite simple, but I need a desktop tool for Windows.

Could you please advise some. Thank you!

70 MB to download... Probably there is something smaller? I'm not really need an office-like application (already use MS Word), I'm looking for software that will help catch and cross link some articles for my research related job.

Great! But imagine if you need to paste another articles and another and more... OK, if we researching the single topic then it's good to have a Word file with several articles and another word file for another topic.

But linking between articles is a problem, especially if articles are in different files.

Examples of using the ln command
1. To make a symbolic link from a file in one subdirectory to a file in another subdirectory:

ln -s reports/reportA publications/my_report

This makes a symbolic link between the file reportA in the subdirectory reports and the filename my_report in the publications subdirectory.

2. To make a symbolic link to a file in a subdirectory to your current working directory:

ln -s docs/editors/vi.ref .

This makes a symbolic link between the file vi.ref in the subdirectory docs/editors/ to the filename vi.ref in the current working directory.

I looked Wiki and they have a list of file managers, not sure whether any will suit.

I didn't see anything else under $300
