"Now I wonder if
NoteTab could help me with that problem?" is how to denote italicized
and/or underlined text. It's hard for me to imagine how anyone can
write much of anything without the ability to mark italicized text.
According to http://webster.commnet.edu/grammar/italics.htm , Italics
are used for:
Journals and Magazines
Long Musical Pieces
Names of Ships, Trains, Aircraft
Foreign Words or Phrases
Words as Reproduced Sounds
Now how can you write much of anything without bumping into the need to
I'd like to be able to insert a character to note the beginning and end
of italicization. The one I'd like to use is a control character,
Ctrl-Y, (but I don't dare mention where I got that idea from after the
way I got flamed the last time I mentioned it).
It has been rumored that the next version of NoteTab Pro will have a
user configurable command interface which allow me to duplicate a
certain unmentionalbe command set in NoteTab. So I could type Ctrl-PY
and it would insert a Ctrl-P character in the text.
Is there any way I can do that in NTP 4.83?
Or am I trying vainly to use an HTML text editor as a writing tool?

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!)
