It is most likely that Microsoft's UAC rules are preventing your pasting.
I would move NoteTab out of C:\Program Files. Since Vista, Microsoft has protected that folder, making many older
applications work in unusual ways or not at all. I install NoteTab and many other programs in C:\Programs, a folder I
created. This also makes it easier to separate these programs from other Windows programs in the registry, if you decide
you want to change anything there. Then, right click the NoteTab.exe file and choose properties, compatibility, and
choose 'always run as administrator'. That will make it work like it worked in XP. Well, if you aren't using an
administrator's user account, you might still have problems. Microsoft's rules are murky about exactly what it permits
for various types of user accounts, and they mean different things in different operating systems.
I also move the NoteTab.ini file local to the NoteTab folder, and edit the .ini file (using a different editor) to
ensure it uses the local copy, and not a copy stored elsewhere in C:\users�..\....\....\....\....\....\ etc. How I hate
You change these setting as I have them:
Then save. Now, everything that happens with NoteTab will happen in its own folders, and there will be less confusion
about which library files it is using, etc. (Confusion, because Windows moves new copies of library files into shadow
storage, and uses them from there.)
I would first eliminate Microsoft's heavy hand on applications before looking further. If it won't paste after that, I'd
not only be surprised, but would begin to suspect the installation of the operating system or physical ram problems. You
should even be able to copy Unicode into NoteTab.

Subject: [NTB] Copy and Paste Problems with NoteTab Pro 7.01/fv
I've been a huge fan of NoteTab Pro for many, many years. It's an integrated part of my workflow.
I recently bought a new laptop and was forced into Windows 7. And since then, I'm experiencing a problem with copying
and pasting in NoteTab. I figured it was because I was still using NoteTab Pro 4.83 and just upgraded to NoteTab Pro
7.01/fv, but I'm still having the same problem after the upgrade.
I begin cutting from various apps into NTP and everything is working fine. Then, suddenly -- and it's not the same
source app all the time -- when I go to paste into NTP, it acts as if nothing is in the clipboard.
Once this happens, NOTHING will paste into NTP. Not even if the text is copied from within NTP. And it's not the
clipboard in general, because even when the text won't paste into NTP, right at that same moment, I can paste and paste
that same text into every other app I have open. It's literally only NTP that's not recognizing the clipboard text.
I'm not using the Pasteboard, although I've tested and the same thing eventually happens there. I'm not using any
utilities or special tools related to the clipboard. I'm not using any custom libraries or clips. Just CTL-C and CTL-V
or cut & paste from the menu. I also have tried closing all the Libraries, as was suggested in another thread -- no
A reboot solves the problem, but possibly only for a handful of pastes and then it stops working again. I can't reboot
every couple times I need to cut & paste! (ha)
This is driving me insane and really disrupting my workflow. I don't want to switch to another product after all these
years. Has anyone seen this before? Or do you have ideas of how to fix it?
Thanks for any help!
