Re: [NTB] Explorer context menu?
- Thanks all for replies. I'll check out the links.
P.S. I already knew how to do Send To... menu. Some computers
routinely misconfigure Send To links for Zip drives or floppy drives,
so I had to learn how to repair that.
- Of the files I mentioned earlier, this is the one I'd most recommend:

"Open with NoteTab Std" shortcuts for all file types.
Seems to work great, and was easy to use.

TIA The Clips list would be OK also as long as it is not dealing
with how to use the other apps/utls mentioned. Thanks!

one method that has been missed by everyone. There is a clip called "Open
with NoteTab" under "NoteTab Shortcuts" in the Utilities Library, that does
the job in a trice. At least it works for me in Win98SE. Perhaps it doesn't
work under 2000, NT, XP et. al. and that is the reason you other guys missed
it. It can also be done easily by editing the Registry; again in Win98SE.
- OK, thanks everyone for replies. I think this topic has been whipped
pretty much to death, but I'll add something. Most of the suggested
recepies seem too complicated, so in short:
1. Select text from the upper left corner of the block to the lower
right. Use any regular selection method. No, it will not look like a
block selection. No, there is no way to actually select a rectangular
block in NoteTab.
2. Use the Modify/Block/Copy command to copy a rectangular block. To
cut a block, use M/b/cut. To paste use either regular paste or block
paste, whichever suits your needs.
Note: there is no context menu item for block copy, as someone
suggested. (Unless you added it yourself.)
