The only problem with the HELP file is that it's written like a book, not a
context sensitive, click-by-click help file. (But then I hate most of
those that I've seen - with Paint Shop Pro being one of the worst/best
example of its kind.)
If you read through the NOTETAB help file from start to end (Either get one
of the OTL format versions or insert the following lines in your WIN.INI:
and use the keys:
to scroll through it) you will find that it's arranged as a very well
ordered, and complete, book.
The problem for most new users is either:
They were expecting to find that NOTETAB was a word processor, or that it's
terminology is strange. The only answer to the former is education and the
latter a good index using a lot of non-NOTETAB terms to help those not used
Maybe having the help file in HTMLHELP format rather than WINHELP format
