Articles and nodes
The screenshot at the top of this page shows two panes inside the main TreePad Enterprise window. The left-hand pane is called the 'tree pane', the right-hand pane is called the 'article pane':
The article pane consists of a word processor, which allows you to type in your data. You can also insert hyperlinks and images. The text inside the article pane is called the 'article'.
The tree pane enables you to browse your data. The tree pane consists of 'tree nodes'. Each node is associated with one article. If you select a different tree node, then a different article is loaded in the right-hand pane (article pane).
TreePad X Enterprise comes in three editions, which are functionally equal:
The 384 Gigabyte edition supports databases of up to 384 Gigabytes (which is equivalent to 600 CD-Rom's or 90 DVDs) on Windows 7, XP, Vista, 200x and NT (on NTFS drives), and can open eight databases simultaneously inside one program instance. You can always start multiple program instances.
Please note that on FAT drives and Windows 95, 98 and ME the maximum database size is always 12 Gb.
The 12 Gigabyte edition allows for database sizes up to 12 Gigabytes (equivalent to 18 CD-ROM's or 3 DVDs) on Windows 7, XP, Vista, 200x, NT, 9x, ME (on NTFS and FAT drives) and can open eight databases simultaneously.
The multi-user edition, called TreePad X Enterprise Server can access up to 384 Gb per database. More information.
Each tree node can be marked with its own icon. TreePad comes with its own default icon library, containing a set of 160 useful tree-icons. A large number of additional icon libraries is available for free. You can also create your own icon libraries.
TreePad offers a variety of icon management functions: copy/paste of icons between tree nodes, paste icon to entire subtree, apply icon to entire subtree, set default icon for subtree, hide tree icons, create new icon library, load icon library, add icon(s) to library, remove icon(s) from library, export icon(s) from library, etc.
Tree node marking
TreePad Enterprise features a customizable spell-checker supporting more than 20 languages, and a thesaurus. Additionally, the spell-checker allows you to define your own words to be stored inside custom dictionaries.
Hyperlinks and auto-dial
Rearrange the tree by dragging nodes to another location.
Move blocks of text inside the article using drag-drop.
Drop text blocks from the article into the tree to create new nodes/articles.
Drop texts and hyperlinks from other programs (like Mozilla or MS Word) directly into the article or tree.
Drop one or more files (from e.g. the Windows Explorer file manager) into the treepad article to create file hyperlinks.
Drop one or more files/folders (from e.g. the Windows Explorer) onto the tree to directly import those files as nodes/articles.
Drag-drop files of any type into the attachment pane to import these files into the database.
Drag-drop files of any type into the article and import them as images and attachments.
Drag-drop an entire folder (from e.g. the Windows Explorer) onto the tree to recursively import all (importable) files and folders.
Mass node mover
Agendas, calendars and to-do lists
You can generate tree-based agendas and calendars, as well as article-based agendas, calendars and to-do lists. Furthermore, agendas and calendars can be grouped by days, weeks or months.
For more information, please see this page.
The tree clipboard can be used to transfer and copy subtrees inside the current database, or between databases. TreePad can copy (or cut) complete subtrees (including all contained articles, images, icons) to the tree clipboard. From the tree clipboard, you can paste subtrees into the current database (at a different location in the tree), or into another database, or another TreePad instance.
Date, time and units
Extended clipboard features
An extremely useful feature is the internal search engine (screenshot below), which is able to locate any article or node inside a TreePad database.
It features a number of 'smart' options which can be combined to optimize your search:
Search the entire database or only the current subtree.
Search node titles only, articles only, or both.
Search for articles/nodes containing 'all the words'
Search for articles/nodes containing 'some of the words'
Search for articles/nodes containing 'the exact phrase'
Advanced (boolean) search, using a combination of 'all words' (AND), 'some words' (OR), 'none of the words' (NOT), and 'the exact phrase'.
Limit search to items which are changed between a specified date range (optional)
Sort search results on date/time, node caption, location and node path
Display node path, name, date/time in search results
Case-sensitive and case-insensitive search
Search inside the current article.
Search /replace inside the current article
Easily switch between article and tree search
Internet search with: standard search, advanced search, search the Web, search discussion groups (usenet), search news and online newspapers, search for images, lookup words in an online dictionary and lookup words in an online thesaurus.
Instant Website generation!
Additional and advanced HTML functions
Article search dialog
Convenient article search and search/replace dialog with the following options: case sensitive, count occurrences/replacements, start from cursor, search whole words, replace all/one, confirm replace, show/hide options, switch to tree-search, close dialog when done.
TreePad X Enterprise introduces an wide range of import and export capabilities:
Export of any subtree (nodes/articles) to multiple files (HTML, Text or RTF). This can be done recursively (optional) creating new directories at each new level.
Export of a subtree (nodes/articles) to a single HTML file with tree indentations at each new level.
Export of a subtree (nodes/articles) to a single RTF file
Export of a subtree (nodes/articles) to single text file.
Import/Export of a subtree from/to TreePad Lite .hjt file
Import/Export of a subtree from/to TreePad .hjt file, including images, hyperlinks and tree icons
Import/Export of a subtree from/to TreePad .tpd file, including images, hyperlinks and tree icons
Conversion of a subtree into a stand-alone exe-eBook for easy distribution. This is a single executable file containing the data (text, images, icons, links) as well as the viewer program (including search engine). Note: the text-part of the subtree you want to convert to this format needs to be 20 Mb or less.
Export to PDF through TreePad-to-PDF. Currently this does not include images and text formatting.
Import multiple (.txt, .rtf, .html) files at once into a subtree: any selection and combination of file types can be imported into a subtree in one go
Recursively import a directory structure of files (.txt, .rtf, .html) as a tree structure (of articles and nodes).
Generate multiple hyperlinks to files in one go
Import images directly from .png, .jpg, .gif, .bmp, .emf, .wmf and .ico files. All image types are stored compressed without any loss of quality, and in their native format.
Convert and export all image types directly to .png, .jpg, .gif, .bmp, .emf and .wmf files.
Any individual article can be exported to an HTML, Rich Text or plain text file.
HTML, Rich Text or plain text files can be inserted into an article at the cursor position.
Insert files of any type and reasonable size into the database (as attachment).
Insert entire directory of files of any type and reasonable size (including subdirectories, optional) as a list of attachments.
Import Windows shortcuts and Internet Explorer bookmarks into the tree (Menu: Database/Import/Into tree)
Import Mozilla bookmarks as a regular HTML file
Import/export to/from other formats using external utilities.
Navigating inside a database
The default tool for browsing a database is the tree pane, but you can also use:
The history list of last visited tree-nodes
The history-back/forward buttons.
The search engine's list of search results.
The flexible hyperlink system which not only supports links to articles/nodes but also: Web pages, files/folders on your local disk, FTP, email, news).
The tree navigation toolbar
The navigate menu
The most straightforward way of opening a database is through Menu: Database/Open local database. There are however other - often more convenient - ways:
The list of favorite databases, accessible from the file toolbar.
The list of recent databases, accessible through Menu: Database/Reopen.
Group files: when you open a group file, TreePad Enterprise will open all the databases which are referenced in the group file.
