How do you delete a "favorite?"
- I'm trying or figure out how to make a favorites list and am
completely lost. Somehow, and I'm not sure I understand how I
did it, I mangaged to add a file to my favorites list. But the
trouble is this is not a file I want on the list. I clicked on
"favorites" in the menu bar at the top of NTP and then
"Organzize" and then "Add Document." The next thing I knew I had
this file on my list.
So now how do I take it off the list?
And how do I add the files I really want?
I looked up "favorites" in the NTP help index and there were
only three topics:
Favorites Files [F/=]
Favorites Dialog Box
And these help topics seem to start with the assumption that I
already know how to manage my favorites list. Where is a help
topic that starts me at square one and explains step-by-step what
a favorites list is, how to set one up and how to use it.
If there is no such help topic I'd be grateful to one of you
patient souls if you could explain it to me in plain English.
I'm afraid the jargon in the help topics is like a foreign
language to me.
The reason I'm asking about this is that today when I booted up
I discovered that I had again lost most of my open files in my
documents list. That is to say, the files weren't really lost,
they just had been peremptorily closed between when I shut down
last night and booted up this AM. This is something of a
nuisance for me to have to manually go through all my text files
and find the ones I need to have open, and then open them one by
So, I'm wondering if a "favorites list" might not be a list of
files that I can open all at the same time. If so, then I want
to learn how to make such a list so I can avoid having to have to
go through this annoying drill each time NTP shuts down my files
I've got 96 megs of RAM and the files are all quite small, most
of them in the 1-3K range so I can't imagine how low memory could
be the problem. And my resource meter always says I 70% free.
Do I need to upgrade to a more recent version of NTP? I'm still
running the 4.81 that I downloaded when it became available.
