An Idea into a program
Most people who don't have microphone use there computers default notepad program to put text notes and other links in there video. I found it bother some watching short or long tutorials were the user spent 25% of the video setting up the notepad. Using a notepad does not only take longer but also looks very unprofessional and is harder to follow. After about a year of watching these types of videos I deicide to create my own version of a notepad but created for videos not text documents. And that’s how Utube Pad was born.
a normal notepad
After a couple long weeks we (The Space Potato Labs Team) finally got it working but at the time it was just a normal notepad and could only do basic functions like: cut, copy, paste, open and save. So we went back to the dry erase board and started brainstorming what we could do to make it different.
A not so normal notepad
We had totally covered the dry erase board with ideas and even a fish drawing made its way up there. We decided on adding a settings menu which would make the program design highly customizable so the user could change almost anything. We even put in Text Defaults which is a list of pre-typed phrases to make the users life easer. You simply click on one and it puts the text into the textbox.
