With Notetab Pro 5.8 I can drag the (unzipped) file sixties.txt to
Notetab. Status bar at bottom indicates it is format Dos/Windows. I can
do some manipulation with the file (insert a couple of characters, save
under another name, select-all - copy to another buffer) but as soon as
I try to set wrap by keying Ctrl+W it crashes (for me its silent - the
app just closes).
Trying the same thing with Notetab Light 5.8 works fine.
The file appears to contain 149679 characters with no line-breaks.
In Notetab Pro Options-Advanced I have both Text-Size Limit and
Paragraph Limit set to 2147483632
Definitely a bug!
I was able to fix the file by using regex-replace of (\....)\x20\20 by
ie. dot+3-character extension (usually appeared to be .m4a) followed by
2 spaces replaced by just the extension and a DOS <cr><lf>
After doing this I could use Ctrl+W with triggering a crash.
