      No, I close all the files (the html pages of my web site) first before
      exiting, so that when I leave, all that is on the screen is the
      NoteTab Pro program as I have optioned it (the color of the blank
      working window as I set it and the library of choice in the left
      frame, etc.). Then when I come back to work again the next day, all
      the library-of-choice shortcuts to formatting stuff I have previously
      docked in the left frame (for example, the list of html operations) is
      missing--that window is blank, and I cannot find a way to retrieve it.
      I know of no other way to explicitly explain my plight. I will try the
      toggle of F4 and the "NotePro.ini" things. My files have always been
      okay. I just do not have the quick-click helps that one uses NoteTab
