Notes With Links Office 365 app

NEW: Notes With Links for Microsoft Office 365 and Office 2013. Free trial. Unique new app with active links to notes from places in documents or cells. A multi user organizer with many note panels. This app is for Word, Excel and (some limits) PowerPoint.
April 1 2014: The Office Store page is down for maintenance as the price is changing, this is not as simple as it sounds (this is not a joke btw!). I will email members when the new version is live.

    A really awesome blog. Continue writing and I’ll keep following! Thanks – June

  2. Kasey says:

    I was initially searching for ideas for my personal site and
    uncovered your own blog, would you mind if I actually
    implement a few of your own tips? Appreciate it, Kasey

  3. MYS says:

    Thank you for this app. I think I might really benefit from it.

    When you EXPORT TO RTF, how do you control the ORDER in which the boxes export?

    Thank you.

  4. GeoffD says:

    The order is from the screen positions, left to right, top to bottom

    They are separated by dividers so you can see which is which.

    Hi – I just tried to watch the youtube video and there is no sound on the clip. My sound is working fine for other clips, but not this one. Is the video only meant to be images?

  6. GeoffD says:

    The latest video is silent. I ran out of my old recordings.

  7. Hey there! I’m a professional screenwriter that’s been using story turbo. THANK YOU!!!!! I’ve looked everywhere for a simple cork-board program and finally found it with Story Turbo. I’m sending a copy to my partner Director Tibor Takacs with whom I wrote Spiders 3D for Millennium Films. We’re working on another scirpt together and sharing a cork board is a great help. Thank you again!


  8. GeoffD says:

    Many thanks, glad it is of use, I am also a writer, that was the reason for it. I’ve just today 1 March released a new notes/organizer app called Notes With Links, which is on the Microsoft Office Store, it runs alongside Word, Excel (and PowerPoint with limits). So you can do finished works and still use notes etc. It is different from Story Turbo. I am doing a proper blog on it soon.
