    v6 v7  
     8WikidPad is a wiki-like notebook for storing your thoughts, ideas, todo lists, contacts, or anything else you can think of to write down.
     10What makes WikidPad different from other notepad applications is the ease with which you can cross-link your information. Links in a wiki are created by typing in !WikiWords. A WikiWord is mixed case word. TodoList or JohnDoe are example !WikiWords.
    10 WikidPad
     12'''Real-time wiki'''
     13WikidPad is not a web server, or application server, or groupware solution. WikidPad is a standalone notepad like application.
    12 .
     15'''A development environment for your thoughts'''
     16Software developers have grown accustomed to certain features from their editing environment that make their jobs easier. Features like auto-completion, outline views, incremental search, easy source code navigation. IDE's that provide these features can greatly increase developer productivity. WikidPad attempts to utilize some of these features to address the problem of personal information management.
    14 .
     18'''Personal Information Management'''
     19How do you manage all of the random bits of information in your personal and professional life? Where do you track your wife's favorite food, your bosses kids names, your personal todo list, the name of the movie you just read a review of, the name of the book a friend recommended. WikidPad was created to address this issue of personal information management. It provides a place to manage the massive amounts of information you have stuffed in your head, on stickies, or on your computer.
    16 .
     21'''Quick Start'''
     22Don't let WikidPad's many features confuse you: First stick with the following basics. They are simple.
     23The main tree in WikidPad does not work like an outliner. If it confuses you, turn it off for now, you will understand it later.
     24For now see WikidPad as a collection of text files. If you want to write something down about some topic, press Ctrl+O (O like "open"), type the name of the topic and press enter. Now write down your notes.
     25If you want to see your notes on a topic, press Ctrl+O and type what you are looking for.
     26You can insert links from one topic to another by putting the name of a topic in square brackets, like [My software].
