      You can use a clip to help with this but it will not of itself directly do
      what you want. Possibly another clip could be written to do this. You
      need to join the clips list for help from other members on this part. I am
      sending you my clips for this by private email.

      You can join the NoteTab Clips List by sending an empty post to:

        HI all,
        For some time I have been using the Favorites for my image files.
        For each site, or if there is a huge number of images on a site for different
        reasons, for each category I have done the Favorites|Categories|New Category
        drop-down-menu thing.
        Then I use the SHIFT+F2 shortcut and add the image files to the category.
        There is a preference setting for showing the complete path in the favorites
        window, or just the file name. Then you can drag and drop to your heart's
        content.

        This gives me a lot of Favorites folders, and when I re-organize my Desktop,
        the Favorites don't work any more, so I also am experimenting with clips which
        give me a directory of image files in a folder and changing the names to HTML
        links, but it is still in the clunky stage.
        Let me know if you are inerested, and if it ever gets past the clunk stage, I
        can post the clips or send them to you.
        Regards
        Stephen

        Hi Grant, ... Mike is referring to the drop down menu from the combo box and you cannot deselect full name from that item - only from the main file list shown

          Mike is referring to the drop down menu from the combo box and you cannot
          deselect full name from that item - only from the main file list shown in
          the panel below it.
