clips from the command line. Clips are generally run from the open window.

(as it relates to executing a clip from the command line), iIt would
be helpful to add the following to the documentation:
"Command line clips are executed after NoteTab opens. They are
executed from the Clipbook. The user must insure that NoteTab opens in
a state that supports clip execution from the Clipbook. For example,
clips do not run from the Clipbook when [Clip] is the active document."

clip provided it gets opened in a state that supports clip execution
from the Clipbook. You can make sure that happens by including an
existing document name on the command line.
Here's another solution. Make yourself a Normal template, and specify
that as your document name. Then you can get a new document and you
don't have to worry about what was the last previously active document.
That is, create a file named Normal.tpl. It should have this line at
= DocTemplate "NoName%0.3d.txt"
Then use this as your command line:
"C:\Program Files\NoteTab Pro 5\NotePro.exe" "C:\Documents and
Settings\Sheri\Application Data\NoteTab Pro\Templates\Normal.tpl" /NS
