Organize the Way You Want with Multiple Journal Sections, Free-Form and Sub Entries

With our journal writing software, each dated entry can contain multiple pages.

Each journal can contain multiple sections, which are like entirely separate journals within a single journal database.  Each section consists of dated entries, with sub-entries and free-form entries, which are not specific to any date.  Section tabs are shown at the top, above the title bar.  The title bar allows you to switch between dated and free-form entries, browse entries and create/select the sub/free-form entry.

Find the Journal Entries you Need Quickly and Easily

A powerful search system allows you to search any or all journal entries, for a word, phrase.  Refine your search using a date range and/or matching Sub-Entry name with or without Free-Form entries included.  The results shown in the Entry Tree comprise a filtered subset of entries that can be browsed, printed or exported.

For further detail click the Filtered Entry Report button to display a list of snippets from each entry with your search text highlighted.

Write Where and When you Want. Sync Multiple Databases or Download Entries from the Online Web App

Keep multiple copies of your entries on different computers (for example, a laptop and a desktop, home or work computer, etc) and synchronize them to keep your entries up to date at all times across multiple locations.

The online web app companion allows you to record entries using any mobile device (iPhone, Android, Windows, iOS, ext.) while away from your desktop then download those entries into your local journal database later.
