Nice product

What a nice product. Well done. I like it. I notice that someone else has offered some suggestions and I am sure that more ideas will be coming your way.

I would like the ability to sort tables. I started using Mars Notebook and at once created a 2 column table for a dictionary of technical terms that I am studying. I'd like to be able to set a header row that is always displayed when I scroll down, and then to be able to sort all other rows based on a column I select. I'm sure there are lots of good examples of sort options available on more traditional products. Your strength lies in bringing a lot of different possibilities together under one tool.

I specially like the transparent mode. Excellent idea for working on two documents at once. Might it be possible to make Mars Notebook stay on top but for the focus to go to the document underneath - that way we could, for example, scroll a reference text being read then pop back into Mars Notebook to make study notes.

Translations: I could possibly start to translate your texts into French if that would be helpful. However, translation is notoriously problematic if you want it to be done well. Usually it requires two people to do it thoroughly - one who can make a rough translation into the target language and a second, who is a native speaker of that language, who can polish the text into normal grammatical usage in that language. Please do not consider this a criticism (I really like the product) but the English translation still needs work done on it, to polish it up to normal everyday English as used by native speakers.

Help files: almost all windows products feature help files that assist the user to learn the basics and give hints and tips on making the best use of the product. I appreciate that will require a lot of effort to create, but suggest it might be a good priority.

Well done for making a really nice product. I hope you reach a much wider market.

May be will be implemented in one of the future version...

It was implemented already but was disabled due to some strange bug :? Hope to fix it in next version.

If you really can translate it to French - it will be very good.
And what about english. I know that some mistakes are possible in english text because it's not my native language. If you can correct the english text just download the translation file from this topic and correct english strings. Do it as written in help (inside this file).

What about help...hope to create it...later...

I have completed 70% of translation into French. I will send you a file in the next few days, and also an updated English version. My French is reasonably good but you may find that a native speaker will make further suggestions for correction and I would recommend you adopt those as they arrive.

Best regards

Ok. Thanks a lot.
Please put a word into 'Translation to another language' topic that you're making french translation.
