[NTB] Re: NT Light won't save position and size
- Hi.. I am having the exact same issue. Tried everything you suggested
in this thread, no joy. I'm on Windoze 2000 with a fresh, clean
install of notetab.

- Hi Oliver,

>suggested in this thread, no joy. I'm on Windoze 2000 with a
>fresh, clean install of notetab.
1. Resize and adjust the program window where you want it.
2. Click on the program icon located on Titlebar (upper left).
3. Uncheck "Open Centered" if checked.
4. Click on the program icon again.
5. Click on "Save Window State" (which does not get a check mark).
6. Restart NoteTab at this time.
Tip: You can right click on the Titlebar for the same menu as above
or press the Alt key and then the spacebar while holding Alt down
(Alt+Spacebar). Simply pressing Alt alone will collapse the menu
once opened or clicking in a "non-clickable" area of your screen.

and even thou doest err some!
