in its settings. The settings are stored in RAM memory while the program
is running and any changes that you make (word wrap for example) are stored
there. When you shut the program down it overwrites the ini or creates one
if none exists with the current settings that it has in RAM memory.
When NoteTab is started, it first checks to see if there is an ini file
with the exclamation point prefix on it. If it finds one, it loads the RAM
settings from that file and then deletes it. If it does not find one then
it looks for the regular ini file that does not have the exclamation point
prefix and uses the settings from it but does not delete that one. If it
cannot find any ini file, then it uses built in default settings and you
see what you get when you first install a fresh copy of the program.
There are several clip commands that do allow a clip to update and reload
settings from the ini file as well as store permanent variable information
created by the user there. These commands are limited though in that a
number of settings cannot be changed this way - the main toolbar for
example. So the only way to insure certain ini changes is to follow the
directions that I gave you about manually editing the ini, saving it with
an exclamation point prefix and shutting down and restarting NoteTab.
- Hi Bill,
I wish to make a correction to my previous post. I experimented with
NoteTab Pro and I found that it does not delete the !Notepro.ini file when
it starts up. It overwrites the Notepro.ini by renaming the !Notepro.ini
file to Notepro.ini while updating its settings from that file.
