World Book® Notepad is an easy-to-use, customizable word-processing application. Originally integrated into World Book Encyclopedia to help students create their own reports using the World Book content, you can now use it with or without World Book for preparing reports, essays, or any other documents. Worried your 2,000-word composition might be too long? No need to count the words one by one – just use Notepad’s Statistics sheet and you'll instantly see the number of pages, words, and characters in your document. There's also a handy Font Drawer that displays WYSIWYG font faces – making it easier than ever to find just the right look for your documents. Other features include floating images, resizing options for document graphics, page breaks, headers and footers, and page numbering.

Notepad- an excellent little app

I have been using Notepad for many years now and have found it to be a useful tool for my computer use. It is a simple (non-bloated), word processor, good for taking quick notes, and as a place to store clips from the net or other applications. I have hundreds of notes which I have cut and pasted from websites in which the graphics are entact and the links are functioning properly. I'm not sure what one reviewer means when they have said that you can't cut and paste into Notepad, because that is the main thing I do with Notepad.
I got my first copy free about 10 years ago and now have paid less than a dollar for an app which I use almost every day. It does exactly what it says it will do and is a bargain.

Not every application is useful for every user, but for the life of me I can't see why anyone would even bother to give a negative rating to an application that sells for $0.99.

I've wanted this separately from world book for ages

I used this application when using World Book Encyclopedia on my PPC mac. I've been looking forward to it ever since. I really like the layout view and the fact that you could let a child write a school report in it.

Very much worth 99¢. If you are currently only using Text Edit you definitely owe it to yourself to pick this up as your next step.

Basic notetaking not word processing

This is a basic but good looking little application for making text, rtf and "Notepad" type documents. There is no ruler, you can't change margins, there is only one print format. I like the WYSIWYG font drawer. I'm not sure what they mean by "Customizable". The only thing I can see that is customizable is the toolbar, which is normal for any application. Apple TextEdit is better, except this is better looking. Nice to use with World Book.
