[OT] Highlighting text in received e-mail messages using MS OE or Outlook
- Hello everybody,
As a recent newcomer to NoteTab Pro (which programme is definitely
the best advanced text editor IMHO), this is my first message to this
discussion list. So, let me briefly introduce myself. My name is
Patrick-Julien Germain and I have been an IT translator and trainer
for about 15 years. I am French but frequently spend more than six
months per year in Canada and the States as a software tester.
Now, my first question to this list; if it may be slightly out of
topics, I sincerely apologize with everybody.
I may want to permanently highlight interesting keywords or piece of
information in tons of interesting messages so I can go directly to
the relevant information when I later retrieve stored messages.
Is there a way to do so, possibly using Note Tab Pro?
I typically use MS Outlook Express as my x-mailer programme, but I
keep and store messages of interest in MS Outlook 98.
Thanks in advance for any help.

not mistaken, the input control that will be used for version
five will have what you want. I know it will at least highlight
in custom colors and hopefully will remember them. I'll have to
check the demo out sometime if I can ever find it. <g>
There is kind of a work around though that you can do. If you
add the file type of the files in question to the HTML Files tab
in Options you can put <arrows around the text that you want
highlighted> and it will be in the color you choose from the
Colors tab in Options. You do have to be in the Pro version
though to get the HTML highlighting. You are actually telling
NoteTab that the words you wrap in the arrows are a HTML tag. :-)
Do note though, that it can slow down NoteTab with very large
documents considerably if you have a lot of the highlighting in
