16069RE: [NTB] Tab Configuration
- Dec 31, 2003Hi Brian (not Chuck !-p ),
You should go to NoteTab's menu bar and select Help/Help Topics and look at
the comparison chart under "General Information" on the contents tab. You
will see a chart with three columns - one for each of the NoteTab versions.
Just look at how many items a checked "No" under the Std and Light columns
compared to the "Yeses" under the Pro column and tell me that you would
rather have Std than Pro. I am greedy though and I have all three.
For what it is worth, the one thing that dragged me under the fence to buy
Pro was the "Smart Tab" feature which Std/Light does not have. Once I
tried that out I just had to have the program. NoteTab Pro is advertised
as a replacement for MicroSoft's Notepad but I never used Notepad for
anything. I had several small ascii text files with personal data in them
(address book, birthdays, etc) and I was using the old DOS 6.22 Edit.com
program because it had what Eric now calls "Fixed Tabs" and "Auto-Indent"
using spaces instead of tab characters. I was playing around with Super
NoteTab and just wishing and wishing that it would do tabs the same as
Edit.com. When I discovered NoteTab Pro 4.0 in beta testing and found out
about Fixed and Smart tabs, I could not wait to get my hands on a
registered copy. I really cannot remember the last time I ran MS Edit.com.
I just did a quick check and I still have it under:
I tried it and it still works after several years of not using it. I guess
that I keep it just in case I have a system crash and need to run an editor
under DOS from a floppy. ie - I get into a situation where I cannot get
Windows started temporarily and need an editor but cannot use NoteTab
because I don't have Windows. Then I can fall back on a couple of my old
DOS programs. Good greif! I don't even want to think of having to do that.
