The Editor has resources for the creation and organization of reviews and a list which defaults to an alphabetical order, and with search by name. It has option of Note for each review (shared with others through the reader you send to anyone you want - example: you created reviews, reader and sent them to 30 persons, they may add comments on Shared Notes and returned to you the reviews, you can then read the maintained or archived reviews, and read in the Reader). More, copy and paste text of Memopad and vice versa directly. In English.
