quick list hiccup!
- [apologies for initially posting this to ntb-html]
i've just reinstalled notetab pro (v. 4.90) as i was getting error messages
every time i booted up - something about the tclipbook - plus an increasing
number of crashes.
no problem, except that the reinstallation appears to have erased my
sizeable collection of quick lists, upon which i rely a great deal. i've
been able to salvage the situation somewhat, as i made a back up copy a few
months back but it's far from up to date. this has never happened during
previous reinstalls. i thought customised settings were always left alone?
anyhoo, the back up quick lists have a different file path to the one i know
use. i've altered them in the past by locating the file containg the paths
and doing a simple find and replace. however, i can't seem to locate it now.
was that also deleted to during the reinstall? is there any way i can create
a new file paths file?
thanx in advance for any help!

This file you speak of is the ini file its kept in where the
NotePro.exe file is kept, in the NoteTab application directory. If
you use NoteTab Pro its ini is NotePro.ini

> was that also deleted to during the reinstall?NoteTab will not work without an ini. If no ini file exists then
NoteTab creates a new ini file when you open/launch NoteTab. Then,
once you close NoteTab, then the ini file definitely should be there.

> a new file paths file?What you speak of is not its own file. But it is a SECTION that is
within a larger file I already spoke about which is the ini file.
If you are comfortable to edit the ini file directly then I do it by
having NoteTab closed then I open NoteTab's ini file in Windows
NotePad (note the P & the D).
Taken from my ini file, as follows, the [DirectoryList] section is
the pertinent section. (I've only 5 paths I don't use QL a whole lot)
Note the filters at RH ea file path. *.* shows all files. *.txt
only shows text files. *.htm would only show .htm extension html
files. 5 paths, SpecsCount=5 6 paths, SpecsCount=5 9 paths,
SpecsCount=9 etc., etc.
