    Hi, i recently changed over to Mac from Windows and i love it.

    The one downside i am facing is the ability to create a secure document.

    For example, i am a web developer, and i have a separate project folder for each website that i develop. On my Windows set up i used a program called LockNote which allowed me to create a secure note inside each web project folder. The note contains the FTP username and password for each website.

    There is no Mac version of LockNote and i think my only option is to create a secure disk image that i can password protect, and then just create one big file that will store all of the FTP codes. Is this my only option, as i would prefer to have each website FTP password saved in each project folder?

    Thanks in advance for your help...

    You could create an individual secure disk image inside each project folder, with each DMG containing a text file that has the needed information.

    You could also use a third party app like 1Password which can store secure notes.

    You can store secure items in Keychain Access as well, which is included.

    Yes, it should be no problem.
