1 star deducted for lack of instructions. To use this, example: try password 1234. The textbox should turn white to enter info. Enter your text and hit save. You can change password if you clear the entry, after using the same password to validate.
Nice concept, bad execution. As is reported in other reviewers, Sidebar Notepad is impossible to use post-install. There is a password prompt when the sidebar is opened and a 'validate' button, the only two things usable. Regardless of what is entered, the message 'no saved password found in browser storage' is returned after hitting validate. There is no way to set a password at install or reset it. Kinda feels like a password phishing malware, though I am not making the assertion that this is what it is - just gives that impression. Would be nice if the author would respond to the complaints in comments, or even better - fix it or provides better documentation for getting this thing to work. Looks like it would meet the needs of myself and others if it were in fact usable.
COMPLETELY Useless. Doesn't work after initial install. NO WAY to set up a password and then the extension tells it doesn't have one stored. How inept is That ??? If you're gonna have it password protected and encrypted - there HAS to be a way to setup, store and/or edit that Password. Completely useless.
Would be nice to have a "Hide" button which would hide the content and wipe the password field, forcing you to re-Validate with password before being able to view again... And "Ditto" for the other complaints on initial setup. Not quite sure how I got it going but I think I typed in a password, then some text, then Save. Also, when the correct password is entered, the status message states that it is "probably the correct password", however it does go green and let you in. Needs a little work for such a simple utility...
On install, I'm faced with an empty password field and a Validate button. Whatever I put into the field, on pushing the button I get a "no saved password found" message. I'm at my wit's end as to what I should do. Uninstalled.
Again, the simplest of needs – a note app in the sidebar – not catered for by the mighty "Quantum".
