If you need multiple users to be able to read the same Personal Knowbase data file (KNO file), you may find it useful to place the data file on a network. A centrally located data file on a network allows any user with a computer connected to the network to read the data.
Teachers, are you ready for the new school season? For ideas about organizing your notes and records, see our previous post on how Personal Knowbase can help educators stay organized.
But Personal Knowbase can also help you share information with your students. Using the Personal Knowbase Reader software provides a handy way to distribute materials. Whether you’re in the classroom or teaching online from a virtual classroom, you need creative and secure ways to disseminate materials to your students.
When browsing a Personal Knowbase data file — opening and closing articles while checking or looking for something — you can easily make changes accidentally.
If you realize you’ve made a change to an article that you didn’t want to change, you can immediately return the article to its last saved state. While the article window is still open, select the Undo Article Changes command from the Edit menu.
But if you know that you don’t want to make changes to a file before you open it, it’s safer to open the file in Read-Only mode to start with. In Read-Only mode, you have no risk of making unwanted changes. You will not be able to modify existing articles or create new ones.
Personal Knowbase Reader is a read-only viewer for files which are created using the Personal Knowbase note management software. You can set up PK Reader to run from a write-once removable disk, such as a CD-R, so that it automatically loads a Knowbase data file.
Personal Knowbase Reader — usually called PK Reader — is a free read-only version of Personal Knowbase for viewing data files created by Personal Knowbase.
With PK Reader, someone who doesn’t normally use Personal Knowbase can read Knowbase files created by someone else using the full version of Personal Knowbase.
