But it defeats the purpose of having an editor if I cannot edit files.
One formerly impressive flexibility of NoteTab is to
-load several files at once (not all can do that)
-initiate changes (eg. search & replace) on all files currently loaded.
This doesn't work, of course, if the files are set to read-only as they are
loaded. So I had a thought, which, if it is not implemented yet, it may be an idea. When you consider the /R command line parameter that sets read-only when invoking NoteTab, can a similar switch be created for force R/W capability if needed? I realize this seems redundant for most users. However, for me it seems like something that can be quite useful.
Until such time, I guess I'll have to use a compatible version such as 4.51 instead.
