This would be great ! I play on my laptop a lot and I don't have a pad of paper and writing instrument with me all of the time . I can use window mode and use Window's notepad but an in game version would be better for writing down addresses for shopping and just general notes and references . I am guessing this has been brought up before but I did not play for years and I rarely visit the boards as I would rather be playing the game than talking about it so I apologize in advance to the board historians .

<p>I just keep a shortcut on my pc desktop to Notepad so when I need it I window out of eq2 and type in what I need. If I want a lengthy passage copied verbatim then I just open the folder with my chatlogs (also has a shortcut on my desktop) and cut & paste into the Notepad. This helped me a lot during SoD. </p><p>Brega - 70 Ranger Test Server</p>

I just use the macro system myself I throw up a few lines of /say "whatever I need to know" , sure its weird to anyone who passes hearing me say whatever  but makes people less likely to bother me with questions as they don't care to deal with crazy people . <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" />

I hear yas - I have notepad on my quicklaunch bar for the purpose of this game but I would still like to see one in game . It would be a nice feature - ya'll would have use for seeing as you are using other work-arounds for note taking . Is it a feature in other in other MMO's you have played ? I do not think I have ever seen it .It does not seem like it would be too hard of a thing to add compared to the work these guys do with games .

they managed to implement a browser.. so i'm sure technically theres nothing stopping them from integrating a notepad too.... good idea btw.

Use Google Docs or one of the other online word processors in the in-game browser.

It'd be handy for To-Do lists, as well... for quests, things I want to craft for friends, things I need to harvest, etc. I've used Google Notebook that way for work; why not for EQ?!Thanks for the tip!.

I just type in text in game, but click the gameworld screen. It keeps what ever you type there. Tracking more than one quest at a time would be nice, like in WoW. More waypoints (that aren't bugged) is a must for this game. Quests are a pain and less fun due to having to visit other sites for tips on what to do each step. PLus on a pvp server, you often get ganked while you're reading away. Or, Sony just needs to give it's players an extra pc to use while playing lol.
