      Hi Martin,

      You can use bugs@... to report suspected bugs and
      Feedback@... for suggestions.

      That is a feature. NoteTab makes a new file and then strips the
      HTML from it. You can delete the .txt file and reopen the HTML
      from File | Reopen...

      Ctrl+Downarrow only moves to the next item in the menu for me in
      v4.82 Pro and enter then works. Actually, just plain downarrow
      does the same as Crtl+downarrow for me. I can't really call that
      a bug though especially since it is the same behavior in other
      apps. If I use the pulldown arrow and then enter on an item it
      does not, but I would not consider that a bug either. Perhaps
      just not programmed to act that way which makes it a feature
      request. ;)

      You can double click on a collapsed item to execute it in Clip
      wizards. You can use look ahead typing as well. Try the In-
      Context Clipbook out too (ESC).

      > The Find dialog stays on stop on other applications.

      That is a feature as well. You can get behind it to work or
      minimize it and use F3 or Shift+F3 to continue the search with it

      Can you give an example of that please.

      That is need to prevent double and triple copies because some
      applications write to the Clipboard more than once. NoteTab does
      not. If you need to copy the same text again add a space after
      it, take away a space, or copy a letter or something before
      copying the same text again.

      I thought this would have done it. I don't really do regexp,
      just play with them.

      ^!Find "<h1>.*</h1>[^<]" RITS

      That is on the wish list and may happen in version 5.

      That is on the wish list and may happen in version 5.

      > A way to stop lengthy searches. Important; some of my text

      You can do your search from a Clip and press Ctrl+Alt to abort out of it.

      > Keyboard short-cuts for selected clips.

      That is coming in version 5.
