Re: Make "Save" button ask where to put file?
- OK, scratch all of the above. Let's start over.
I've monkeyed around with the "Save Document" and "Save as..."
buttons on my toolbar and it finally hit me how to describe what it
is I want:
I want the "Save" button on my NTP toolbar to behave like
the "Save" button on my Word 97 toolbar, i.e., like this:
1. I click the "Save" button the first time after creating a
new file, it will open the browsing window allowing me to name the
file and select or create a folder to place it in.
2. Thereafter, each time I click the "Save" button, it will
automatically re-save the file under the previously selected filename
and folder name.
So, can I get the "Save" button in NTP to work like the "Save" button
in Word 97?
If not, on which list should I post a request to have this feature
added to the next release of NTP?

asking for IS the default behavior of the "Save" command (including
saving by way of the toolbar icon).
What are you seeing that I don't?
"Match Directory" just means NoteTab will use the directory of your
current active document, as the default directory for any additional
documents you want to open. That is, if you have a file from
D:\Documents open and active in NoteTab, if you click Open again,
you'll be in the D:\Documents directory. If you switch to another
open file in NoteTab that's in another directory, then that directory
becomes the default. In other words, it kind of follows you around,
wherever your current active document is stored, will be the default
directory for opening other files.

Luckily I learned from my experience that NoteTab is pretty transportable
and if you copy the whole NoteTab directory from one location to another it
will most likely work. It's always worked for me.
Mind you, the best way is to just re-install it. You DID save the setup
program when you first unlocked the "wrapper" program, didn't you? But as I
said, the other way works almost as well.
