are doing and your personal preferences as to which tools you
use. Some that you might want to read about in Help if you get
along with Help files are: Join Lines, Split Lines, Set column
Wrap, and Reformat Lines. There are a number of working Clips
(see Help | NoteTab Glossary ;) in the two Libraries mentioned
below. Many Clips use the tools mentioned above.
I have a Library called ReFormat with a number of Clips in it
made just for reformatting text and another called eForm'r which
is a bit smaller and maybe not as overwhelming. You should be
able to get them from my Libraries page. Click on the link in my
sigline for my front page.
If you need to discuss the Libraries (that you unzip to NoteTab's
Library folder) please write me in private eMail or the Clips

from what I saw. If you select all the text in NoteTab and
choose Join Lines (off the Modify Lines menu) all your text will
wrap evenly (so long as your AOL mail program does not add them
automatically). You can add tools to your Toolbar or Shortcut
(right click over document) menu in View | Options under those
names (tab). I know what "curliques" are, but have no idea what
you are talking about, I think, :-)
