I decided to beat this to death with a stick:
(a) copied the "pasteboards"'s .ini file and replaced my "main" .ini file
(i.e. ...\Notetab Pro\NotePro.ini) with it.
Here are target and Start-in: (from Properties) for both
(note: both have Multiple Instances=0=No) :
Target:"C:\Program Files\NoteTabs\NoteTab Pro\NotePro.exe"
Start in:"C:\Program Files\NoteTabs\NoteTab Pro"
so-called Pasteboard editor:
Target:"C:\Program Files\NoteTabs\NoteTab Pro\NotePro.exe" /NS "C:\My
Documents\ntbPasteBoards\thePasteBoard" /J=-1 /INI=ntbPaste
Start in: (as above)
(b) I did exactly the same thing with both shortcuts: (first one at a time
and then with both open simultaneously) - Opened them, turned on the
pasteboard (with tool-button), closed and then
(b-i) re-opened them.
(c) The one using the "main" NotePro.ini reopens in (b-i) with the
PasteBoard "set" (ie. in-use), the one using /INI=ntbPaste reopens in (b-i)
with PasteBoard NOT "set"
(d) I redid my SendTo test - When I send one file or a group of files to
the "pasteboard-icon-editor" it/they do NOT go to it, instead it/they go to
the "main" editor (the one with no Target: command line) (Makes no
difference if one or both is already "UP" - I swear it's not processing the
Target=command-line - I checked that the shortcut in SendTo folder has the
same Command-line as the one that I normally invoke from QuickLaunch.
(e) When I close the "pasteboard"-editor [exit tool button] and then reopen
it, it has ONLY one file - the one from the "command-line" - I guess this is
what Alan originally wanted, but per your comments (Jody) I guess its a BUG
not a FEATURE ;==) (Note: the File-Reopen-List IS updated if I close a file,
then in a separate step close the editor. BUT if I open a new file, save-it,
then [exit] either using the toolbar or from the [X] at upper right, the new
file is NOT opened the next time I open the editor (nor does it appear in
(f) to make sure this behavior wasn't because of resource limitations and/or
peculiarities induced by restarting, I removed BOTH Notetabs from Startup
and reproduced the behavior in (c), (d) and (e) above.
(g) This may be related - when I have both editor-instances open
simultaneously (the "main" one and the target="command-line" one, I am
frequently getting this error msgBox when I close one or the other :
>>Exception EInvalidOperation in module NOTEPRO.EXE at 00041BED.Control '' has no parent window.<<
Note: I haven't been able to make this 100% reproducible but it definitely
involves having two instances in use at the same time.
As you and Stephan Riddle (in an off-list message) hinted - It's about time
I learned some clip-stuff ;= but I wanted to run this by you to make sure
I'm not imagining things.
The behavior in (d) I consider a "BUG", the behavior in (c) is really just
an annoyance, and as I indicated, the behavior in (e) may be a FEATURE as
far as Alan is concerned - if he can reproduce the behavior I'm seeing ;=)
I've saved copies of the .INI's in the unlikely event that you want to see
them. As I said I think I've made sure that differences in them are not the
cause of what I'm seeing.
(I hope this description isn't so convoluted you can't figure out what I'm
