Re: [NTB] word wrap bug???
- Hi Harvey,
Do a Ctrl+End/Home and it should clear as well. If it is what I
think it is it happens sometimes when running Clips that format
text quickly as well and pasting text sometimes. I have seen it
happen on my Win98 machine with a Diamond 8MB video card, but not
on my XP Pro with a 32MB geForce. I did not test your procedure.
You might want to post over on the NRN list if you feel it needs
to be checked/tested on more machines. (I rarely use Std/Light
FWIW; only to test with.)

- I also had trouble with word wrap. I thought it was because of something
foolish I'd done. I do tend to click everything, just to see what happens.
Suddenly, the day after someone else had been using the program, I had
no word wrap. I went into Options and it was marked as on, and I clicked the
Word Wrap icon on the Document menu. It didn't even change its appearance.
Then I found Update Column Wrap Now.
After I'd used that a few times I had spaces where none should be.
Then I found the setup for NoteTab and installed a new copy, and everything
is as it should be.
It was awful while it lasted.
Not complaining, just maybe adding to the thread.
