That's a Pro-only feature. Light is great and does all the basics,
but Pro has many nice improvements. Another is the abiltity to
display non-printing characters.
Some differences between Light/Standard and Pro stem from or are
compounded by the use of different "input controls". Light and
Standard both use Microsoft's Riched32.dll while Pro uses a modified
version of the TurboPower's Orpheus (per the help file). For example,
the Orpheus control cannot display variable-width fonts.
The Numlines Perl script in the SampleCode library actually alters
the document by inserting line numbers. You must undo or reload to
Perl scripts should work in Light/Standard and Pro.
- Larry, Peter:
The num-lines I was speaking of is the Perl script provided in the samples.
It actually inserts numbers in the text as opposed to the "View/Line
numbers" which puts them in the gutter as you said.
I was asking Peter if he'd got it working just as step he might want to try
towards getting his own Perl scripts.
btw Peter: - you might want to check out PerlReplDialog.zip on the Notetab
clips list posted by Sheri on http://groups.yahoo.com/group/ntb-clips/files/
" Clips and scripts for processing Perl Regexp Search and Replace functions
on an open document in Notetab. Dialog uses Perl/Tk. "
You should join the Clips list at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/ntb-clips
if you haven't already.

I did get it working, but can't remember how I did it. I think it was
more of a fluke, than anything else <g>

Thanks, I will check that out. Thanks to Larry and Sheri for their
replies. BTW, I'm also subscribed to the "ntb-clips" list, and get the
daily digest, but for _this_ list (notetab) haven't got a daily digets
since Saturday. I checked my group settings and it's set okay. Anyone
else notice this ??
- Hi All,
Can you please stop sending the posts on this thread to the
NoteTab Basic list and keep them coming on the Clips list?
Thanks! They could have been posted to the Scripts list,
but since they are already going to the Clips list, I'd leave
them there. TIA
My Internet connection has been down for awhile, so no telling
when this will actually be posted.

There have been no posts since mine on Tuesday; the issue is resolved.
Whether it be 'yahoo groups', web discussion forums, or newsgroups
(usenet), I find that, for a "new comer to a product", people have
quickly forgotten that they were once new comers and were facing the
question "where do I post this question". This is especially true of
moderators, who see the opportunity to flex their muscles.
At the time of posting, I was using NoteTab Lite, so I posted in the
notetab list, I had no idea the issue at hand was anything to do with
clips or scripts. Please be a little bit more considerate and patient
with ignornant people like me !! :)
I'm still evaluating the product of course.
