What is NoteTab for?
- I'm beginning to wonder if NoteTab is really the best tool for me.
I started using NoteTab Pro, I don't know how many years ago, because I
learned that it had an option to use the venerable WordStar command
set. I've been using it ever since to maintain lists, and not much
I'd really like to be able to use it for text editing, but that would
require the ability to mark some text as either italics or underlined;
and as far as I know NTP doesn't support that. But how can you write
anything without being able to italicize or underline? For example, if
you are writing an artcle with NTP, how do you format the title of a
book or a journal?
So, I'm wondering: what is NTP for? It obviously isn't for regular
writing. Is it designed instead for writing program code?
Am I wasting my time waiting for NTP to incorporate rudimentary text
formatting like italics or underlining?

list, I've asked myself this question.
It seemed clear to me that an edition with every imaginable feature in
it was going to suffer the same kind of bloat that the dreaded MS WORD
suffers. I know there is recognition that NOTETAB is too big for some
purposes or Jody wouldn't have pointed me in the direction of the GUN
(Grown Up Notepad) or Metapad for some of the lighter weight tasks for
which one might need a text editor.
Put me at my ease! Tell me v5 will work like this.
(It's already a real pain trying to run NoteTab from a floppy!)
