The KNowIt application is used for simple note taking tasks. It was available during the KDE3 releases as a third party application, but is no longer maintained or supported. KDE Software Compilation has a simple note taking tool in the official modules, and starting with KDE SC 4.2, KJots has the ability to import your old KNowIt notes.


This feature is available for KDE SC4.2 beta 1 and later releases

The screenshots below show how to import KNowIt notes into KJots. The import has the following features:

  • KNowIt notes are imported as KJots pages.
  • KNowIt notes which have child notes are imported as KJots books.
  • If a KNowIt note has child notes, the content of that note is imported as an additional page in KJots.
  • Links created in KNowIt notes appear as a list in a KJots page. These links may be edited in KJots.
