Current Version


The editor has been designed to act like a word processor with all the functions you would fine like alignment, clipboard, search, replace, redo and undo however also included is


This is the main editor window, versions may vary.

All the features you need are there to create a document and save it, even print it when needed.  The actual format used by Keep a Secret on all the documents and diary files is RTF (Real Text Files) this is help users easily change text from within other file formats however this does not mean it can be done with the encryption format as that is for personal use and only can be decrypted within this application however at this present moment in time there is only 1 available encryption but ill be developing seeded encryption keys in future versions making it harder for people to read your data so easily.

Most of the options you need will be on the menu button on your mouse menu .. Right mouse button will show the commands and functions you need, saving files and is found under the File menu along with other easy to understand commands.

Additional Information, as you can see here from the program now the Quick Menu layout is slightly different as I added a few more bits to it.

On the new update there is a slight change there is now a Last File icon this records the very last file you loaded and when you click the icon it will place the file name inside the file box.

** Further update plans for the editor

I am planning of adding more to this such as being able to open multiple documents so you can change between them.

Entering text in side search box will look for that text within your document.

At this moment in time replace only does it manually i.e. when clicking on replace only replaced one text at a time through the document.

Find Next as its says will search for the next word

Update - This will update the main document.
