Quick Start

There is no need to memorize all commands available in TXTLock.

Just start with these ones:

- 'set password'
- 'set pin'

then

- 'add txtblock' to add a txtblock.
- 'set txtblock' to set the txtblock active.
- 'add' to add text or text with a date to your textblock.
- 'edit' to edit your text.
- 'show' shows the content of the active txtblock.
- 'read' to read the whole txtblock.
- 'save' to save your data.
- 'quit' to leave the program.

Use 'parameter' to change various settings.

To create a structure with sub directories use:

- 'mkdir' creates a new sub directory.
- 'cd' to change the directory.
- 'home' to go back to '//' (home directory).

Note:
- Use the ARROW Keys to enter your PIN when loading a TXTlock datafile (not for 'set PIN').
- To access an existing txtblock or folder simply enter the name (or part of it) at the command prompt and TXTlock will either list all items that contain this text or (if it has only one match) jump straight into it.

#Hashtags in TXTLock:
Add any #Hashtag of your choice (i.e. #linux #security) to your Txtblock using the usual commands:
'add txt', 'add date', 'add now', 'edit txt', 'edit date', etc.
To list these entries containing your #Hashtag, just type your #Hashtag in the command line.
Use '#Hashtag /export' to export the #Hashtag entries list to a text file.
