Only problem I had with nVault Reader is the search function would not go to the line it searched so you couldn't edit that line, it only displayed it.
Yes thats actually one of the main reasons I decided to put this together -- because of the search not highlighting the found item. I would always search for a key to see if it existed then manually dig through the list looking for it. It also has a few things that the nvault reader does not; play around with it and you will see.

I was actually planning on doing that, as well as having a "Recently Opened files" sub-menu on the open menu.

Will do.

I didnt give the timestamp a column because I figured no one really looks through vault entries for a timestamp so it wasn't necessary to display with the list item. Are you recommending this simply to save window space or because you think it should be displayed on the list. I could make it display the actual date instead of the epoch number timestamp. What do you think?

Unfortunately, the windows control I used (ms listview) does not allow the click-and-editing of subitems; only the left-most column is click-and-editable. There are other similar looking controls that will allow the editing of any block, I will look into them.

Source code is coming soon

I am also going to add drag-and-drop functionality for nvault files.

Thanks.
