RE: [NTB] Digest Number 1181
- Hi Kathy G.,
>Are libraries the same as clip books?Yes, for all practical purposes. Technically, there is the
Clipbook (also called Clipbook Library) and it loads or holds so
to speak Libraries. You can have one active at a time. It is
basically, the Clipbook is basically just the means or window
that Libraries are displayed in. (See Help | NoteTab Glossary for
terms. It is pretty exhaustive as far as NoteTab goes.)
>How do you use them? Do you just click on it before you pasteLibrary files reside in NoteTab's Libraries folder.
>your text? I don't really understand how that works. Any
>information would be great.
Toggle the Clipbook open/closed with F4 (or Tools | Clipbook Properties).
Activate a Library from the Libraries bar at the bottom of the
screen. Click on View | Libraries bar if you don't see it; it has
buttons with the names of the Libraries on it.
You can also activate a Library from the Library name combo box above
the larger pane where all the Clips are lists. (Alt+1 will activate
the 1st Library, Alt+2 the 2nd and so on.
There is not really a blanket statement on how to use a Clip,
because they can be used in so many different ways. It depends on
how the Clip is written. Normally there are some kind of
instructions given depending on who wrote the Library. In a lot
of the Clips in the HTML Library that comes with NoteTab, you
select text first and then click on the Clip. (Single click if
you have "Single click to execute" checked in Options | Clipbook).
Other Clips require that you fill in a wizard that pops up like
the HTML beginning. Oh, the ones that wrap the selection are like
<b>bold</b>, <i>italics</a>; the html code that has a start and
close tag. Other Clips might launch a program. another, gather
data from a directory and another to give you a list of all open
tabs and then click on one to focus it. And, the list goes on.
Don't worry about trying to figure all that out. Just take it as
you run across it. :)
