Default Another excellent piece of software for Mac users, especially writer:

Yojimbo. Think OneNote 2007 for the Mac.



I've been using it for about a week, and it's already become indispensable for jotting story ideas, notes and research.

Thanks for the tip Saint, looks like a pretty well designed program from the page.

Default It's only my opinion but...

I'm using Bento for that. They are very similar.

Yes, they are. I think my favorite feature of Yojimbo for this, as opposed to Bento 2, is the "Drop Dock." A small tab that floats at the side of the screen can be "pulled out" or "pushed in" with a click. Pulled out, you can drag and drop selected text or images into user-created folders, then close the Drop Dock to put it out of the way again. Much handier than a full on app switch from Safari (or whatever your material source may be) to Bento 2 for the same activity.

Yes. I do like that feature. One thing I have been pushing for with Bento is the ability to export the database content as an xml file so that I can incorporate the data into web pages using php. To have that functionality in either Bento or Yojimbo would be fantastic.
