KnowIt is a tool for managing notes. It is similar to TuxCards, but KDE-based (it requires KDE 3). Notes are organized in tree-like hierarchy.

Here are some key features of "KnowIt":
Notes management:

notes organized in tree, easily moved using drag&drop
searching in notes
finding notes by title

Notes editor:

RichText format
proper display of any language/charset (UTF-8 save format)
different font styles, colours etc.
configurable paragraph alignment
support for unordered lists
subscript and superscript

Configurability and usability

last file and note reopened automatically on start
configurable shortcuts
system tray support


printing of current note
HTML export

What's New in This Release:
list editing menu commands
improved handling of read-only files
many improvements to export
link copy command
some shortcuts for links added
fixed backup bugs
warning when resource file is missing

0.10 will probably be the last one before major rewrite. Internal file format will change, supporting many requested features, such as configurable colors, icons, better link handling etc. Other plans include KPart support, DCOP, different note views and many more. If you have any suggestions, please send me an e-mail or join knowit-devel mailing list.
