I am new here but I just noticed this post...
.BAS, .TXT, .*, they can't be different at all. I think. You
should be able to store the BASIC code in any form you want... because
the program lets you! Look in preferences... "Source filename
extention: [.BAS]" If you were to change that... then it would show
that kind of file in the "open" window and auto-set the computer to
open...let's say... ".DOC" with LB.
I could be completely wrong. It just makes sense to me.
