    Hi, some suggestion:
    When we have many pages, it becomes hard to remember which page contains the information we have written some days ago. Here are some ideas:
    – Ability to add titles to notes.
    – Ability to add keywords (Not sure it would be really usefull, maybe a better thing could be some integration with Punakea. Ayway its just an idea. I will think more about this one).
    – A search field to find relevant notes (like in Preview from Apple).
    – Include or use spotlight to search a note.
    – Some kind of coverflow or exposé feature to see several preview of the notes at once.

    What could also be useful is a list of all created notes, with the ability to change the number of a note (or to “move them around”). Usage example:
    – I deleted all notes between 15 and 25, I want to place the notes from 26 to 35 just after the 15th note.
    – I made a note wth a number close to 100, but what was it exactly ? 99 ? 101 ? 102 ? …
    – I want to group notes 3 and 11 (which cover the same subject) one after the other.

    And finally, when I want to edit 2 notes at the same time, it would be nice to be able to open 2 windows at the same time. Also usefull when I want to merge/split notes.

    Thats’it, some work for you 😉

    Thanks again for ScratchPad, it is very nice !

    Some more ideas:
    – Make the note files (that are in ~/Library/Application Support/ScratchPad/Notes/) to open in ScratchPad by default when double-clicked. And when opened, ScratchPad switch to that note. (ScratchPad just has to know the file name to know which note it is) This way I can make an alias on the desktop of an important note, or you could easily make spotlight integration, or I could manage some notes with Punakea (, or access them through Quicksilver, Butler etc.
    – And if the rtfd file that we open with ScratchPad is not a note file, ask to import it as a new note. Ask for the number of the note to create with that content or to which the content should be appended. Then ScratchPad would be able to import and export notes.
    – Remember the last position in a page, so that we don’t have to scroll all the way down in long pages if we often need what is at the end of it. Maybe not between 2 executions of the application, but at least during a single execution, when we switch often betwwen 2 pages. (Otherwise let us open 2 windows 🙂 )
