Idea Morgue is $10 shareware; you can try Idea Morgue for ten launches before registration is required.
Version 1.2.0 is compatible with Mountain Lion's default security and is Intel.
Idea Morgue could be used effectively by designers, inventors, engineers, school teachers, realtors, etc. In fact, this application could be used by any creative person.
When you launch Idea Morgue the first time, drag the Control Panel to the bottom left of the display.
Idea Morgue has two Modes, Image and Text. Click on a Mode button to choose the desired Mode. Above you see that the User is starting to make an Image Tag. The User has entered the Image Tag name, “Demo”, into the New Tag field.
Above you see that the User clicked on the "Save" button and Demo Image Tag has been added to the Tag Table.
Above you see that the User has added an Image to the Demo Image Tag. To do this, the User clicked on the Demo Image Tag in the table, pressed Command-\ (or Command-`) to signal that he wanted to make an Image from a screenshot (the display is covered by a light gray layer), clicked on the top left of the image, dragged to the bottom right of the image and released the mouse. The light gray layer is removed and the image is now displayed to the immediate right of the Control Panel. The User then clicked on the "Save" button and double-clicked on the Demo Tag in the Tag Table. This display shows that there is one Image connected to the Demo Tag and the first Image is being displayed.
Above you see User has added a second Image connected to the Demo Image Tag, double-clicked on the Demo Tag, and used the up/down selector to display the second Image.
There are two options for saving Images, selectable from the Image Save Options menu. When you select the Manual Save option, a small MS is displayed in red font above the Control Panel's Tag Table. When using the Manual Save option, the User must click on the "Save" button to save an Image. When you select the Auto Save option, a small AS is displayed in red font above the Control Panel’s Tag Table and the "Save" button is clicked automatically after an Image is created. This helps the User make images rapidly.
Above you see the User clicked the Text Mode button, entered a Text Tag titled Text Demo, and double-clicked on the Text Demo Tag. A Text Clipping window is now displayed to the right of the Control Panel.
Above the Text Clipping area there are six style buttons that provide a bit of style control. Here you see the User has entered a sentence and it is displayed in the default style.
Above you see the User has clicked on the "Font Size 16" button and then clicked on the "Font Red" button.
Above you see the User has pasted text from a browser window. The pasted last line retained the source style (bold, blue, larger font). The Text Clipping window has been resized by dragging the bottom right corner and repositioned.
You can add as many Image Tags as you desire and as many Images linked to each Image Tag as you desire. To delete an Image, navigate to the Image, and click on the "Delete" button. You will need to confirm that you really want to delete that Image. To delete an Image without this confirmation, hold down the Control key when you click on the "Delete" button. To delete an Image Tag with all of its Images, hold down the Shift key and click on the "Delete" button. You will need to confirm that you really want to delete that Image Tag and all of its Images.
You can add as many Text Tags as you desire. There is one Text Clipping per Text Tag and the Text Clipping can be as long as you want. To delete a Text Tag with its Text Clipping, navigate to the Text Clipping and click on the "Delete" button. You will need to confirm that you really want to delete that Text Tag and its Text Clipping. To delete a Text Tag and its Text Clipping without confirmation, hold down the Control key when you click on the "Delete" button.
