 Custom font exporting

I've just try the program and I've found it really usefull, but it would be wonderfull that you could choose some options web you export something to a html file, like including a stylesheet or choosing a personal font.

Congratulations for your program

I'm happy that you like cherrytree, thanks for congratulations.
I agree that the export to html needs to be improved, but it requires a lot of free time that I don't have at the moment, in the short period I will be able only to ensure bugfixes and minor changes.

Haven't really used it yet, but judging from the menus it's better than basket, and i've been looking for a basket replacement that doesn't requires 100 foreign libraries. I do get 'cherrytree stopped running unexpectedly' when I X it out, but that doesn't seem to affect anything, just an enlightenment exception without consequences.

 Excellent program!

I have been using CherryTree for quite a while now and it has proven to be much better than other note-taking applications I have tried using (although I see it here listed as a text editor, which it is not), the others do not even come close.

I have several databases set up and finding notes, data, etc. has never been easier.

I also have moved all my Firefox booksmarks to a separte CherryTree database and it has made life much easier, making FF use much less memory, as well as having a knowledge database for finding everything I need.

Thanks for all your hard work!
