I would like to take notes more efficiently and fluidly for general-purpose purposes that span to include notes about software, lists on PC parts, student notes etc.
I find that writing plain text and having it output something that is very nice and stylized to be quite efficient for my note-taking needs as a student. Thus, the software I need should have these features:
- Cross-platform (or at least run on Windows 10)
- Markdown support
- Ability to create notebooks
- This should also include the ability to create a notebook and group notes into folders/chapters. For example, I wanted to create a notebook called "Novel Notebook" and wanted to organize my notes into seperate folders like "Characters" and "Ideas".
- Manage notes with tags
- FREE <-- IMPORTANT! (preferably as in "free speech", i.e. open-source – but at least as in "free beer" (no money involved)
UPDATE - 7.24.2018: Found a software called Simplenote, however it doesn't seem to fit all the requirements as it lacks organizational functionality. I also found something called Laverna, but it is aimed towards programmers and I am not sure whether I should use it without a professional opinion.
