12483Re: [NTB] Re: documentation and FUNCTIONAL clarity
- Dec 5, 2001Let me be clearer - I have no objection to anything about Notetab that the programmers could
fix. (There are Windows problems with the way text files are handled)
Nor am I criticizing the help files per se.
There IS a difference between clarifying menus and explaining terms and commands
and organizing things under FUNCTION = what you want to do.
Make double space etc etc
In those terms it is sometimes hard to find what you need.
(This is not unique to Notetab) In the long run help files need to be organized
for funtions the users want to perform. Not for knowledgeable computer types
who know everything already. (Pardon the testiness but I've gotten some insulting
letters in reply to what seems a simple idea)
