nvALT is a fork of the original Notational Velocity with some additional features and some interface modifications. It is a work in progress.
Notational Velocity is a way to take notes quickly and effortlessly using just your keyboard. You press a shortcut to bring up the window and just start typing. It will begin searching existing notes, filtering them as you type. You can use â-J and â-K to move through the list. Enter selects and begins editing. If youâre creating a new note, you just type a unique title and press enter to move the cursor into a blank edit area. Check out the descriptions at notationalâ.net for a more eloquent synopsis.
nvALT adds widescreen layout support, collapsible notes list, customizable colors, MultiMarkdown/Markdown/Textile preview rendering with source code tab and more.
