fairly simple enough but I will suggest one more thing. Go to the menu bar
and select View/Options and then go to the General tab. You should have
"Reload Open Documents" checked. You should NOT have "Allow Multiple
Instances" checked. If you do allow multiple instances then it is possible
for the last instance to write to the ini and that will cause it to be the
new default. That is, if you open NoteTab once with your favorite files
open and then open a second instance with other files you are editing, you
can lose your settings to the second instance if you close it last. Each
instance of NoteTab writes to the ini file with its cirrent settings when
it is terminated and if you have more than one open, then you have to be
careful to leave the one open that has the settings you want until all of
the other instances are closed or it will be replaced by the settings of
the last one you close. I hope that is not too confusing to you.
Otherwise, I cannot think of anything that Jim or Jody has not told you to do.
By the way, there are two settings on the general tab that are opposed to
each other. If you check one then the other will be unchecked.
"Reload Open Documents" or "Load Favorites on Startup" - you can only have
one checked at one time. If you check one the other will become unchecked.
