Be sure to keep a backup if you customize the cliphelp.clh file. It gets
overwritten when you reinstall or update NoteTab.

No, but I added to it, and my version, together with my ClipCode Syntax
clip library and outline, is included with recent versions of NoteTab
(since version 6).

Most of those internal clips are Eric's. I think the separate clip for
inserting the caret is just to ensure that functions don't get evaluated
before insertion. Seems like it could have been included in text
insertions made by the other clips -- as ^%Caret%. Maybe the library
predates that special variable.

Using the clipbook for launching clips is not allowed in ClipEdit (i.e.,
when [Clips] is the active document). The Clip Assistant essentially
gave a clipbook to ClipEdit. You can also launch clips from the clipbar
during ClipEdit (except in NoteTab Light) but probably the clipbar came
You might want to try the ClipCode Syntax clip. It helps you locate a
clip function or command you need without rummaging through the Clip
Assistant, and once found, runs the associated Clip Assistant clip.
