Re: Files Marked Read-only / Binary/null Characters (was Re: [NTB] Nonfunctioning because...?)
- Hi Mordechai and Others...,
I noticed my online version was a bit different than my NoteTab Library PasteBack FAQ, so I updated and merged them both, hopefully identical now in all three places. I snipped out most the stuff below and added what I inserted to the last message.

And, yet, a third option... You might try using Document |
InsertFile... into a new document instead. It is a safe way to
get a copy of the file into NoteTab that you can work with not
having to fear that you might mess up a perfectly good document.
In the case of a null character (mentioned below from Help) in
the last line of the document you can most likely uncheck "Filter
Binary Codes" and edit the file. Do read the rest of this before
doing any changes and certain make a backup file before editing.
