    I had some more ideas:

    You might have more luck with Evernote

    I use OneNote - which, of course is part of MS Office - .

    Evernote is similar to OneNote in that you can organise information into different notebooks.

    With OneNote I can also drag text around and move it to where I want it located. If Evernote does this, Im unsure, but it will allow you to create a notebook for, say, each category that you have created.

    Another alternative is Jarte or JartePlus. This program is more similar to wordpad, only it alows you to organise "tabs" side by side, and therefore jump to a new tab quite quickly.

    Thanks again! In OneNote, is the text you can drag around in a box of some sort?

    Yes, the text is in a box. You can only see the box borders when has been selected by the mouse pointer. You can drag and position a group of text that is in the same box, like you were moving a magazine clipping across a table surface.
    To create a new box, you just reposition the mouse pointer, click then type away.
    How does that sound?

    Sounds pretty good! Not sure about the disappearing box though. What's the purpose of that?

    Search me!!! I dunno.

    I suspect it means that the object is not in focus to edit. An object in focus will show with a pale grey box, and that seems to mean that the text is now editable.

    That's logical........

    How about just using Sticky Notes?

    Uh, no. I'd have to buy out Staples (unless you're talking about Sticky Notes on the PC). If so, I'm not familiar with the program.
