4059Re: Save Outline = Quit Application
- Nov 21, 2010Yes of course, File:Save or Ctrl+S (the Frontier Win 10.1a11 non-functionality of which was the origin of this thread). .ftop files File:Open without restriction in OPML, by which I assumed I could also save them.
The global font issue is not fatal, as is working solely in RAM until exit. It is easy enough to reselect the font and size, after I boot the computer and OPML. I am plenty happy enough with the capability of cutting and pasting text between Windows applications without a Mac emulator crashing.
I am running Win Server 2003, adjusted for "Pro" or workstation operation (first ever Windows system as reliable as Mac OS 6.8). Prior to system shut down, I right-click exit OPML from the taskbar. Taskmanager shows the application and process has quit. Upon startup, a dialog box appears, stating that OPML encountered problems and unexpectedly quit. After I cancel, it re-appears, totalling the same number of times I started/quit OPML since previous system boot. Again, not fatal, but I thought you might like to know.
I don't want to be bothersome. To what degree would you like me to report functional problems in OPML?
Many Thanks, again.
