CherryTree is a hierarchical note taking application, featuring rich text and syntax highlighting, storing data in a single XML or SQLite file. This software is designed to store your entries in containers, which some programs call “notes” or “pages” and Cherrytree calls “nodes”.
CherryTree is a place you can store links, pictures, tables, even entire documents.
CherryTree includes a flexible and fast search facility.
- Rich text (foreground color, background color, bold, italic, underline, strikethrough, small, h1, h2, h3, subscript, superscript, monospace).
- Syntax highlighting (only when the rich text is disabled in the current node).
- Images handling: insertion in the text, edit (resize/rotate), save as png file.
- Lists handling (bulleted, numbered, to-do and switch between them, multiline with shift+enter).
- Simple tables handling (cells with plain text), cut/copy/paste row, import/export as csv file.
- Codeboxes handling: boxes of automatically highlighted text into normal rich text.
- Alignment of text, images, tables and codeboxes (left/center/right).
- Hyperlinks (links to webpages, links to nodes/nodes + anchors, links to files, links to folders).
- Spell check.
- Intra application copy/paste: supported single images, single codeboxes, single tables and a compound selection of rich text, images, codeboxes and tables.
- Cross application copy/paste (tested with openoffice and gmail): supported single images, single codeboxes, single tables and a compound selection of rich text, images, codeboxes and tables.
- Copying a list of files from the file manager and pasting in cherrytree will create a list of links to files, images are recognized and inserted in the text.
