Windows note taking with Cylix is quick and easy. Here we have a few tips to help you make the most of some of the features that are available to you in the application’s Web Editor, PDF Viewer, and Text Editor.
Web Editor Tips for Easy Windows Note Taking – Create tables quickly and efficiently
You can work with tables in the rich text editor, and carry out both simple and advanced operations on the columns, rows, and cells. You can click on a cell, and a little menu will pop up to tell you all the things you can do with the table. You can add or delete rows and columns, change table styles, split cells, change cell styles, and more.
When you want to jump from one cell to another quickly, you can use the TAB key. Cylix also lets you add a new row simply by pressing the TAB key when you’re on the last cell in the last row. We also made it easy to remove a table that you’ve decided you don’t want. Just click on a cell, look for the icon that looks like a dustbin, and click it to remove the entire table. You do not have to go through the cumbersome process of selecting the table and deleting it only to find that the formatting of the document changes.
PDF Viewer – View PDF files efficiently
You can import a PDF file or several PDF files with the bulk import option. When you’re working on a PDF, you will have the possibility to toggle the sidebar, with thumbnails for quick access to specific pages. The PDF viewer gives you all the features that you’d need, including zoom in and zoom out, a hand tool to scroll over a zoomed-in page, and use the quick predefined zoom option. You can copy and paste a text selection from the PDF with a quick button. We’ve also enabled searching in the document. Cylix highlights the word of phrase you’re searching for and also matches cases.
Text Editor – Compare two items with Diff in the text editor
The text editor in Cylix lets you do many of the things that you’ll be familiar with in Notepad and similar tools. Cylix gives you the ability to copy and paste, text and Copy All as well. You can align text, justify, undo/redo and wrap. One particular feature that we’re proud of is the Diff option. This feature lets you select two items and compare, in the way that you’re able to do in Visual Studio for instance.
Diff can be useful for version control. The Diff window will show you the difference between the two files you are viewing, side by side. You can add and change the text as you see the differences.
