SafePad is a great idea!

However, having the encrypted file makes you depend on having the SafePad application for opening it. This will often become critical if you try to open a .scp file on a machine that does not have SafePad OR forget where you put it AND can't download it from the web exactly then OR forget what's the application's name in order to search for it (trust me, it can happen...).

I believe an option to bundle the content within an executable program, that when run, allows viewing OR extracting to text (after entering passwords) will make this app much "safer" from such owner-induced / technology-induced risks causing the owner to be locked out of his own data.
