      RE: Open Document search Vs. Directory search.

      I like BOTH functions - but the open document search allows you to copy
      from the document or the Clipbook when the wizard is open, which means
      less use of tokens when doing replacements. The Directory search
      function ( In NoteTab Standard) will not let you do this and when
      working with many docs in a directory , requires tokens. ( SOMETIMES
      the replace wizard will not find the highlighted text in the open
      document you select from.) what I would like to see to improve this is a
      check box in the REPLACE dialog that allows the same search to be
      applied to directories, and a SET Screen Update on/off option as a
      check box in the Replace dialog. If i have a lot of open docs and do a
      replace I have to manually approve the save of each one and THAT can
      take a while. So a SAVE ALL option upon completion of processing would
      be nice. I really the ability to have silent replace when using clips,
      but would like to have a search/replace access to call a clip from the
      open clipbar to get the replace text. That would save a lot of back and
      forth-ing. (Enter search term by manual or highlighting, and click on
      a clip to find and process all matching text with that clip) RECORDING
      a Macro would also be nice for repeated multitasks:) How about being
      able to drag a clip to the REPLACE With box?

        I would like NoteTab to beable to have the option of opening teh Xenu
        report and the referenced pages EITHER in the browser OR in NoteTab as
        an option. It would make finding & fixing broken links a lot quicker

            Just about anything to do with unformatted text. My ideal is to do away
            with word processors altogether, maybe except for the very last stage,
            actually converting to some kind of formatted text.

            I may be able to achieve that best under Unix/Linux with vi(m) and
            LaTex, but I have never tried the combination. I do use vi(m) a lot
            though. Besides, I prefer dedicated Windows applications when under Windows.

            That NTB offers many, easy to access features for working with
            unformatted text. I am not a programmer, nor an html coder nor anything
            like that. I like that part of NTB too, but I do not really need it. For
            me those 'techy' features are just (very handy) fun really.

            >
            > 3. Which NoteTab feature(s) do you use the most?

            Pasteboard, Outline, working with files in multiple tabs simultaneously,
            search (and replace), renaming + deleting files from inside NTB.

            See 3, but other editors do have at least some of these features but not
            all.

                epub preprocessing (finish done in Sigil)

                > 2. What is it you like most about NoteTab?

                Clip-language, stability, fast automated processing of large files (in the pro-version, as far as I remember, the Free edition was somewhat slow - but haven't used the free edition for years now). By the way, "Large files" to me is up to 1 or 2 mb, which probably isn't that large, but thatøs what books like Les Miserables and The Count of Monte Cristo amount to :o)

                > 3. Which NoteTab feature(s) do you use the most?

                A couple of highly specialised clipbooks, regex.

                > 4. Which NoteTab feature would you miss the most if you had to use

                Clips, regex.

                > 5. Which feature do you miss the most in NoteTab that competing editors offer?

                Unicode, the ability to assign keyboard shortcuts to clips (I'm presently running an AutoHotKey script to that end, but would prefer this to be part of Notetab)

                > 6. What is the top benefit you get from using NoteTab?

                Can't put words on that - see 2, 3, 4 - but every time I try another editor (and I've tried a lot!), I keep returning to Notetab ...

                  plus trying to understand macros through the online groups. OK, I am no

                    Eventually I'll wish I had listed 90% of the features others are listing
                    as well. I am enjoying this thread a lot.

                        It has worked well in all the versions of Windows that I have had to
                        update to. The user base is very active and helpful. It has enough

                        check out other editors as I have become aware of them.

                          I do not use NoteTab as much as I used to when I was coding at lot of sites. But I do still use it to maintain a few of them. One of the unique features that I really like is "Search Disk". When there are hundreds of files, it's very handy to be able to find the exact word/phrase and be able to open all the matching files at one click. Then a 'Search and replace' can easily make changes (I would never do that without first visually confirming).

                          My one wish is that it would run natively on Linux. It does OK on Wine but the Linux feature that I miss most is the ability to highlight then paste with a scrollwheel click. ctrl-c ctrl-v is an OK option but my reflexes just want to do that one click. :)

                            Miscellaneous note taking, source code editing for programming, using regular expression replaces on data copied from and back to other apps, pasteboard, and just general use. It is pretty much the only editor I use, unless I need UNICODE or a full word processor.

                            I use the clipbooks occasionally, although not as much as I used to years ago.

                            > 2. What is it you like most about NoteTab?
                            Overall power and ease of use. Ability to manipulate text and data quickly.

                            > 3. Which NoteTab feature(s) do you use the most?
                            Regular Expressions, outlines, paste board, calculate expression

                            (By the way I'd love it if you could make a minor tweak to make calculate expression feature more user friendly. I'd like to be able to do chained expressions 1+2=3 +3=6 +4=10 by just typing Ctrl-E after each equals sign without having to select the text first. Also, not having to select the text first when the line is preceded by a label and colon. Such as "Label: 6*7-9=". I suggest it just ignore anything before certain punctuation such as colon, semicolon, a previous equals, etc.)

                            Not having the scroll past end of line feature in other editors is a minor thing, but it annoys me, LOL. Other than that I'd miss the clip programming, pasteboard, outlines, regular expressions and NoteTab's ease of use.

                            > 5. Which feature do you miss the most in NoteTab that competing editors offer?

                            FULL UNICODE SUPPORT. I am finding myself having to use other editors
                            more often just because of this. It's becoming a dealbreaker more
                            and more often.

                            Better syntax highlighting of source code in various languages would also be nice, but it is a luxury I am already used to doing without.

                            > 6. What is the top benefit you get from using NoteTab?

                            I just like how easily I can manipulate text and data with it using
                            whatever I need of regular expressions, clip code, etc. And I like having one single editor that does the majority of everything I need.



                            And, hello, everyone. Sorry, I've been so quiet in the group in recent years. I'm still around, though, and scan the messages here occasionally.

                              1. General purpose text editing and manipulation. Since I try to do as much as possible in plain text that covers a lot of ground. I use simple outlines for a lot, classifying and saving clips captured by Powerpro, keeping notes and journals, searching text files on disk, and the usual HTML editing. The Modify ans Search menus get a lot of work. Search disk is invaluable, especially in conjunction with some of the old clips by Jody Adair for searching disk files and creating selective outlines. Notetab just does some clever things that it is a lot of work to do with other editors. I use Vedit if I have to for Unicode and huge files and gVim for cross platform work but neither is as quick and simple to create solutions for as NotePro if it has the capabilitites.

                              2. You can move it so easily and for a paid program the upgrade process is so simple. The whole program is portable so you can just copy the whole directory where you want and then reinstall the program files to move it. It will also run as a portable app. I really like the clipbook featurea and the included macro language which is far simpler to edit and implement than most other scripting systems on other editors. Many of the old clipbooks in the repositories are still functional or can easily be modified for present use. They cover everything from TeX, to HTML, to coding and running interpreted languages and file manipulation. Again, if you are working inside of NoteTab's capabilities it's a very elegant and functional program.

                              3. Search disk. Using Powerpro you can save clipboard contents, categorized sticky notes, etc. as either it's own format (for rich text) or text. I'll use text as a default. It also saves them in individual files so I can find any note or clip saved as text quickly and load it into Notetab with a simple directory search and edit or use it as I wish. Using clipbooks like Dirstuff and Outline I can create selective outlines of notes and clips for archiving. If I use Dropbox I can then find them across different computers by searching the Dropbox directory.

                              Outlines, Modify lines, Pastebord, and the Clipbook repositories are very useful too.

                              4. The Clipbook. Can't figure why some other editors have not copied the simple visual method of clip selection, editing, and integration into their own macro language suport. For most of them you have to define menus or select macros from a file list. The FarClip and Clipbar features are pretty unique and useful also.

                              5. Syntax highlighting of course. I wouldlove to have it for the interpreted languages if nothing else - Python, Perl etc. and maybe for TeX. I think trying to comptete with dedicated coding editors for support of C, C# etc with tags and the like would bog down NoteTab. I also think that the edit control you are using (Turbopower?) may have some built in limitations and difficulties in that regard. If so thanks for the support for HTML and CSS and the clip language.

                              6. A solid and useful program that I am familiar with and can perform the large majority of my text editing on Windows. The first programs I install on a new Windows machine are NotePro, Powerpro, and Irfanview. That's good company.

                                suggestions some of you sent. New ideas have been added to the NoteTab
                                wish list.

                                We're in the final stages with the new web site and hope to release
                                NoteTab 7 by the 1st of July.
