Greetings,
Since i've started playing this game, one thing that I noticed is the amount of paper I use to sort out my clues/evidence/witness.
I was about to print some sheets templates for note taking but thought maybe it could be possible to have a notebook in our detective section. You know, it would be a section to go in and jot info and to see all your notes in one section. Then after you are clear with the case, you could clear the notebook and start fresh with another case.
I don't know, just brainstorming, let me know what you guys think.

Later

We've discussed similar features in the past, but I think I've decided it's bet to let everybody figure out their own way to keep notes. If I spelled out to much info in one place, it would take a lot of the player skill out of the game.

Personally, when playing on a very high level of difficulty, I use an excel spreadsheet to rule out suspects.

I use an excel spreadsheet. I can erase it after each case, and it is very convient. Maybe this would help reduce the amount of paper you go through.

I've got a sheet set up with a few nice features. Drop me a line if you want a copy.

I have an effective system using pen and paper. Even if there was an online notebook, I don't think I'd use it. I don't know if it will be effective on harder levels, but I look old fashioned pen and paper.

I used to feel the same way, then I started using a spreadsheet, after a couple days I decided to use paper, and I like that so much now that I don't know if I'd use the notebook either. So I'd just wait a few weeks and you'll probably have your own system worked out by then.

Having a real notebook is part of my sleuth experience. I had a special sleuthing pad for Christmas - how sad is that!! It's great.

I also use paper and pen. Although using a spreadsheet can probably save some trees, I somehow find it hard to have to click between browser and program.

However, I somehow feel there is a place for a "notebook" feature in this game. It might not function like real notetaking, but could be something that helps with case solving, or keeping records of a detective's personal statistics, etc. Or maybe the new hunts or features coming with the latest upgrade might have need of a "notebook" feature of some sort.

I think it would be too much trouble to ask an alibi and click to detective to write in notepad. You may as well just click on case and then on the suspect. I am probably responsible for a tree being chopped down with the amount of paper I get through. In my defence, I write in tiny letters.

Greetings,
Thank you all for your input. I've since been playing around spreadsheets and made myself a custom notebook. It works actually well for me.
Have a good evening.
