Re: How to restore my NTP configuration?
- Thanks Sheri,
Yes, F6 opened my Quick List.
And now I've got it back on the left side.
But it's lost its former formatting. Am I going to have to manually
set the color and font?

- Little by little I've been getting NTP 4.95 back to the way it was
working before it went blooey on me yesterday morning. Just a few
moments ago I discovered that it had lost the WordStar Key Mapping and
had to hunt for the control to get that back.
So I imagine over the next few days I'll keep stumbling on settings
that I'm going to have to figure out how to restore. Yesterday I
tried to reset the background color on the Favorites list, but the
"Define Custom Colors" option was out of commission. No matter where I
moved the crosshairs, the color always came out white. But this
morning, it was working again.
That behavior, along with it losing all of my personal settings, leads
me to believe that I may be dealing with a corrupted installation and
may have to reinstall. Would this forum be the appropriate place to
request advice on how to reinstall NTP 4.95 while trying to retain my
personal settings in the process?
And, I suppose, there is no way to answer the question of how it got
so messed up. It was working fine until I decided to deselect the
"Help > Poll for News" menu item. And in the process noticed the
"Show Tip of the Day" menu item, and checked it. Then yesterday
morning when I booted up I got a tip about dragging and dropping from
the Clipbook into a document.
The tip had a footer that said "Press F1 for more information about
this tip." When I pressed F1 my NTP display changed radically and I
lost all my personal settings. I guess that alone is reason enough to
reinstall NTP, wouldn't you say?
