problem. That is also a maybe (or most likely if you will; I do
understand that another programmer was able to fix the same
problem which might not have been a bug in his software). The
reason I say that is many of us get fooled for a long time
thinking something is a NoteTab problem because it appears that
it is only happening with NoteTab. We've had a few problems like
that over the past that turned out to be Windows or Delphi
problems. Sometimes Eric can work around them, but not all the

in some text, then saved and closed it. I then went to windows explorer
and deleted the file - something I didn't expect it to do, since the file
was still being held with NTP. Going back to NTP and trying to reopen that
file proved impossible since it had been deleted. Okay. I think we need
to go back and look at the original post to see what the problem was. I've
gotten myself confused because of the weird way things are working now.
This is all under XP Pro with NTP 4.95.
