Notepad stores sites

One of the common questions I get asked about NetNewsWire is: How can I store an RSS feed that I don’t want to read for now, but that I don’t want to lose?

I may add a way to do this in the future—perhaps when I do feed-specific refresh settings.

But for now you can use the Notepad. You can drag feeds from the Subscriptions pane to the Notepad to store them.

Here’s a screen shot of part of my Notepad. When I get a request to add a site to the Sites Drawer, I store the feed in my Notepad. (I subscribe to some of them, too—I learn about lots of cool sites this way.)

Here’s the same screen shot with the Notepad Info window open.

(You can also store RSS headlines, file references, and URLs in the Notepad. Just drag and drop.)
