      Hi Dave,

      >I hate to seem dum but what does everybody mean by folding text.

      Simply put it is like hiding or collapsing text so that you don't
      have to scroll vertically as much. It is like Windows Explorer
      (or My Computer) when you click on the minus sign next to a
      folder and it closes so that you do not see the folders and files
      allowing for less scrolling.

      The same question was asked on one of the lists a few days ago
      and there were some good answers. It also prompted Harvey (hrs)
      to build a Clip on the Clips list that will remove the text and
      put it in a file, then write it back in from the file when one
      wants to see. I think that is what he was doing - just glanced at
      it. I made a Clip to use that method many years ago. (Search for
      "Folding Text - clip" without the quotes on the ntb-clips list at
      yahoogroups to see the Clip and learn a lot of things.) See the
      information later in this post about the different mailing lists.
      There was also/is also discussion going on on the OffTopic list
      as well.

      However, that is butchering the document. <g> Of course it works,
      but, well it's easier to quote. Melchior said on the Clips list:

      To clarify our wish for a "folding option" in
      Version 5 I have to mention that a real folding
      would not alter the file itself but just the way
      it's shown by the editor. So you could have a
      folded html file, press F8 and see it in your

      It's amazing the work-arounds that one can come up with in
      NoteTab. I've saved 1000s and 1000s of hours of time doing things
      that I probably wouldn't even attempt to do without NoteTab's
      Clip Code.

      Lotta on the OffTopic list reply to one question with this plus
      some more...

      To get a fairly good impression of how it works you can view an
      unstyled XML document in IE. Here's one:

      ---------- Discussion mailing lists at yahoogroups -------------

      You may sign up for the different discussion mailing lists from
      either of the links below. We use yahoogroups for the lists.
      Please read the following if you decide to sign up!

      If you sign up for any of the discussion lists, please do *not*
      post questions about NoteTab Clips and other scripting languages
      (such as RegExp, Perl, CGI, etc.) on the NoteTab Basic list.

      More difficult tasks should be posted on the Clips or Scripts
      lists. HTML should be posted on the ntb-HTML list and off topic
      discussion takes place on the ntb-OffTopic list. The MailBag
      Assistant, Easy Thumbnails, Easy Imager, and Album Express lists
      are for discussion of those programs.

      The most important thing to remember is please leave the NoteTab
      Basic list for the *_very basic_* use of NoteTab. The other lists
      are a lot more flexible, for instance, Clips can be and are
      welcomed on the HTML list. Thanks!!!
