View Full Version : Indexing Quotations
09-19-2004, 11:27 AM
Can anybody point me to a simple (software) solution for storing and indexing quotations?
I regularly preserve interesting quotes in my reading and either in my writing or public speaking, I would like to draw up sub-sets of my quotations list according to a keyword or phrase. I can't believe I'm the only with this problem.
I'd be grateful for any tips or suggestions.

I have started using a search tool called Filehand that creates an index of the folders you tell it to and allows you to search your documents much like you would search Google. Results are displayed by relevence. I have started scanning reference documents and using Acrobat for the OCR recognition. It is VERY cool and has come in quite handy when I need to find something fast. Go to www.filehand.com. Best of all: they now offer the basic version for FREE!

I'll give it a try and let you know how I get on.

On the Mac, there is "Notebook", by Circus Ponies.
Each "notebook" that you create with the program has an index of all text in the back.
