RE: [NTB] Newbie questions:
- That's a clever solution, but as you point out, it is not a real solution.
The ability to assign combinations to clips would be enormously valuable and
I would place it high on my wish-list.

However if you really want to do this there is a way.
Whether or not it is practical for you is another question.
If you create a Clip Library whose Clips have a single letter header (name)
You have TOOLS|Auto-replace Mode checked
If that Clip Library is the active library in the ClipBook, typing the
single letter header followed by an ENTER will cause that clip to be
For the most part this isn't real practical but for a special situation, it

- Custom launch is an excellent feature, but it seems to have a flaw (unless
I'm missing something).
I use another excellent program called WinBatch to run sophisticated Windows
Batch files (similar to, but better than Windows Scripting). WinBatch files
are plain text and ideally suited to being edited in NoteTab Pro. I would

seems that I have to set my Custom Launch field to: C:\Program
The problem with this is that if I want to work on a VBS script, I would
have to change this to:
For every different type of script, I need to change the Custom Launch
