I have been testing a couple versions of TreePad. TreePad Lite is a plain text only indexed database personal information system. It is completely free and small. My guess is it could be used usefully on a diskette for keeping class notes, personal connections, etc. or for storing any kind of plain text that can be typed or copied to it.
There are however several versions of TreePad. It has been around since 1995 or so apparently and has evolved into several strains. The one I am primarily interested in is TreePad Business version. It allows saving rich text and images, etc to the articles. And, once a person has collected information and photos, the tree menu and articles can be exported as HTML for setting up web pages. Also, the files can be converted into a self-executing "exe" file with a free conversion utility. This appears to be a powerful and versatile information management system.
I had a problem getting TreePad to print correctly, but that seems to have stopped either because I did something right or even unknowingly in configuration of something. I will write more about this and also about programs I was using and how it compares. I think I will buy this product before the 21 day free test period expires. In case you might want to also try out this apparently very powerful system, check out the site below and download some of the versions and utilities.

Well, I will followup on this as indicated later. Check it out yourself, and let me know what you think.
