List "Rules" (was Printing with NoteTab)
- Hi All,
This post is not directed at anybody, so don't take it that way.
I have been meaning to post it for awhile. It is a general post
for everybody to read in my wishes that everyone that posts will
follow what it says. I am as guilty as the next guy at times,
Thanks for your input fellows but... what is going on in this
thread is exactly why the welcome letter states that the Basic
list and others are for discussion of NoteTab only. The lists
are not to get into wars about "my program is better than
program" (especially when the author "stole" Eric's intuitive
Do remember, I do not mind a few lines to point somebody in the
right direction to solve their need with a link to other
software, but please stop it there; don't discuss other products.
If you have the need to discuss other software, then by all
means, please sign up for the NoteTab Off-Topic (OT) list.
We discuss competitors and other software on our OT list, plus
some excellent help on all kinds of things that are related to
computer issues and even the weather at times. ;) The OT list,
is a source of some really great computer issues. There are some
on that list who were working with PCs long before some of you
were in diapers. ;)
So, the bottom line here is, please try to obey the "rules" and
keep off-topic posts going to that list. If you feel you have
the need to post something like another product not related to
NoteTab (unless a Clip or Library is involved), then Cc: the
sender and post the message to the OT list. Or, Cc: the person
and reply to the appropriate list like Clips or HTML... and
needless to say, Clips go to the Clips or HTML list, depending on
All programs will not be the exact program that will fit
everybody's needs. NoteTab is still fairly young compared to
some of our competitors. I truly believe that edge we have over
them now will increase greatly and blow them all away in version
5. (Eric has some great features on the way, some I have
mentioned and others we choose to remain silent about at this
Sure, NoteTab does not have "everything" at this time, nor will
it ever, but it still out performs with a in options, in
features, and in scripting over the competitors.
However, if NoteTab does not do what you need, then by all means,
register a product that does. I and hesitantly say Eric, do
indeed want you to be happy with whatever editor you use. Of
course, we would prefer that to be NoteTab, but if it does not
fit your needs, please, find another program that does.
NoteTab will be using a much better print module that it has now
in version 5, so, a lot of this talk will be irrelevant hopefully
within the year or a we bit into next year.
