notepad pro not storing settings
- I have been following this thread because it exactly describes an
issue I just encountered and have not been able to resolve. I am
running notepad pro on win-xp in a user account and it will not
remember that I have chosen no back ups. It still makes .bak files
everywhere I go. It is quite frustrating as I can't seem to resolve
it. Full admin permissions to the user account makes no difference!
I hope someone can spill the "resolution" beans :(
- Hi gilray4,
Try going to NoteTab | View | Options | Advanced and check the
box to store the settings in the system registry. Other than that,
see my post on the other thread...

An alternative that I think ought to work is to NOT try to use the
registry, but instead use an ini-file that is stored in a folder for
which you have full rights. If you can get a copy of the regular
Notetab.ini or NotePro.ini file and save it to your own folder, then you
can use it, as follows:
Edit the short-cut used to start NoteTab (create a new one, if you can't
change the one you were using) to specify the new ini file,
as documented in Help under Command-line Parameters. For example, I
have a short-cut in my launch tray whose properties show the following
"D:\Program Files\NoteTab Pro\NotePro.exe" /ini="d:\Program
I could edit this to give the ini file a different path and filename.
The only limitation that I can see to this approach, is that "file
associations" would still use the default ini file when you double-click
on such a filename in Explorer or other file manager.
