This feature-rich application allows the users to assign due dates, add charts, sketches and diagrams. The tool is highly customizable, and allows the users to make changes upon general use of the tool, appearance, start-up of different projects and other helpful functions.

It seems that some confusion has arisen between Circus Ponies notebook which is at version 3.0.14 (v486) downloadable at
and SmartTech Quick Notebook which is itself at version 3 - downloadable at
Smart Tech is a maker (20+ years) of smart whiteboards - their software suite is at version 10.7 - quite expensive and some of their distributors have acquired a bad reputation for benign unresponsive to end users of the smart whiteboard systems.

The confusion is to be expected when products use the generic words smart and notebook in their product names. This of course creates confusion when trying to keep ones software up to date
