relaying what he wrote awhile back. ;) Version 5 will have a
different Toolbar FWIW.

present an idea that relates to the needs of people with lots of clip
on their clipbar.
There is a trick for getting more milage from the clipbar. With a
small bit of extra clip programming, you can make each clip perform
two, three, or even more, different functions. Launch the clip
normally to do one thing, launch it while holding the shift key to do
The method is based on using the ^$IsShiftKeyDown$, ^$IsCtrlKeyDown$,
or ^$IsAltKeyDown$ functions at the very beginning of the clip.
If there wasn't a rule against posting clips to this list, I've give
an example. ;-)

long as I hold the Ctrl key down otherwise only the focused doc
is recycled. It never dawned on me to use it for dual/trip
purpose buttons other than that one. The problem is remembering
them all. <g>

For those of you who might wonder why we have the rule it is for
a few reasons, but mainly for users that don't care about Clips
and do not want the extra mail. Likewise, some Clip writers do
not sign up for the basic list, because they don't want that
mail. Sorting mail archives is another reason. We get fewer
"Unsubscribe me now! I cannot handle all this mail" posts and
fewer people unsubscribing. The reason I say no Clips at all is
because if even very short ones are allowed, then list newbies
think that Clips are allowed and before you know it whole
Libraries are posted. Yes, it has happened. <g>
The Basic list is up about 300% in membership since I started the
rule. We stayed at about 200 for a couple of years before that.
The rule has not been in effect quite that long I do not think.
so, that tells me it is justified to be fair to the folk who just
want to get help on using the regular text editor features of

Sorry for this way late reply...I played around with wrap and unwrap
in the toolbar and couldn't get what I wanted (2 full rows of clips)
so I decided to keep things the way they are and just keep switching
libraries. Thanks anyway.
One other question - I recently started to learn Perl programming and
want to use NoteTab as my editor (of course!)...here's my extremely
newbie question: How the heck do I run a script from notetab?? I
have activestate perlwin32 installed but am not quite sure how
everything works together.
Thanks for any assistance you can give a confused, non-programmer.
