MyInfo 6 for everyone

MyInfo 6 is here! Yep, if you are already MyInfo customer you know about it. But for the rest of you it’s news. And the waiting is worth it, believe me!

So, what’s new in MyInfo 6?

Hoist [Professional edition]

This is a convenient command that allows you to focus on a specific part of the topic, by hiding all documents that are not important to you in the moment. Just select a document in the tree, click Hoist, and all documents that are not children or direct parents of this document will disappear from the tree.

Reminders

This was another very popular feature demand: add reminders to the documents. Here we go: in this version you can assign a reminder to any document and if it is open in MyInfo when the time comes, it will show up in the Reminders dialog.

Multiple document windows

Many people use MyInfo for research and writing and they find it hard to work with two documents from the same topic in MyInfo 5. That is why, we’ve included multiple document windows support in MyInfo 6. If you click on document title, it will open as separate, read-only windows, which you can view while editing another document in the same topic! And you can open as many documents as you want.

Better linking

We’ve greatly improved linking between documents in MyInfo 6. Now you have two easy ways to link to other documents.

Quick/wiki links shows you a list of all links in the topic, while editing document text. Just type [[ and some text after it, and it will show you all documents, beginning with this text:

Now, just select any of them and MyInfo will create a link to this document in the text editor.

And if you prefer using the Insert Hyperlink dialog for this purpose, you will be pleased to learn that it now allows you to link to documents in other open topics too!

MyInfo is now Unicode

Don’t know what Unicode is? Don’t worry, it’s just a fancy word, which means that MyInfo now works with multiple languages anywhere in the application. You can mix Latin, Cyrillic, Chinese and any other characters in the text editor, tree, attributes, filters and topic file names.

Ms Word outlines import and export

In this version, if you export MyInfo topic as RTF text file, it will retain its documents structure. Open it in Ms Word, go into Outline mode and you have your outline as it was in MyInfo.

The other way is possible too: export Ms Word document as RTF file, import it in MyInfo, using Import > Ms Word outline, and MyInfo will create a nicely looking topic, preserving the Word document hierarchy.

Workspaces [Professional edition]

MyInfo workspaces allow you to save your working session and restore it later. It remembers all open topics and document windows for a later re-use.

They are handy, if you group your topics by a theme, so for example you can create “Project session” with all topics related to this project and open them anytime you like.

Verified backups

Extra security is always welcome. This is why, starting form this version, MyInfo will keep two backup copies per topic. The second one (.verified) will be created only after the topic is successfully open, thus preventing corrupt MyInfo topics from overwriting good backups.

More new features and improvements

Some other new features and improvements in MyInfo 6:

  • Replace text in all documents [Professional edition]
  • Paste clones
  • Page Setup dialog
  • Updated state icons and over 60 new state icons
  • Word 2007 and Word 2010 .docx support
  • Go to next/previously visited topic
  • Recently used search queries list
  • Go to previous/next clone shortcuts
  • Favorites toolbar
  • Go to first/last, first sibling/last sibling document shortcuts
  • Toggle last visited two documents, and last visited two topics
  • More date/time formats
  • Smart date/time input
  • Image hyperlinks
  • Many bug fixes

As always, you can try out a full featured, 28 day trial copy of MyInfo 6 from our download page.

Meet MyInfo 5 – new release!

We’ve have exciting news today! We are pleased to announce that the new version of MyInfo 5 is available to the public. It may be not a news for you, if you are already our customer, but it is news for the people that are not yet our customers. You can download the new version here.

We have full list of what’s new in MyInfo 5, but here is a quick overview of our favorite new features. What are yours?

Links to paragraphs – People use MyInfo not only to store notes, but also long documents. It was impossible to link to specific place in a long document in the older versions of MyInfo, but now you can do that easily.

View files directly in MyInfo – We have expanded our internal browser to support a bunch of file formats (Adobe PDFs, Ms Office files, images and text files), allowing you to view the embedded copies of these files without leaving MyInfo!

Spelling in any language – MyInfo 5 now uses OpenOffice.org spelling dictionaries. And since it is the software with the biggest number of dictionaries available, you have access to spelling dictionaries in more than 100 languages!

And just a quick reminder of how much MyInfo has improved since its first release 10 years ago, take a look at this screenshot (check out MyInfo page on Facebook for more screenshots):

What will happen in the next 10 years? We’ll love to hear your feedback!
