7431[NTO] Re: HELP: 30 seconds to open txt file is killing me
- Aug 1, 2006Hi Alec,
>You probably mentioned earlier exactly which programs you've beenable to speedily open for edit (?)
Each of these programs open txt and html files in a blink.
* HTML Help Workshop 4.74
* Macromedia Dreamweaver MX 2004
* Macromedia HomeSite 5.5
* Metapad 3.51
* Microsoft Word 2003
* TED Notepad 4.53
* UltraEdit-32 12.10
But, NoteTab Pro 5.0, NoteTab Light, and NoteTab Pro 4.95 all take 30

When installing TED Notepad, it suggested that making it the default
program for txt files may interfere with your systems file protection
system. I'm still wondering about this and the way NotePad is
replaced with NoteTab.
While trouble shooting this, I've noticed that while it will take a
long time to open the first file, it will then open other files in a
blink. Maybe I could live with that, but then I noticed that if I
waited/worked for 20-30 seconds in between opening files, it would
revert back to taking 30 seconds to open the next file, and so on.

Notepad handles natively but Notetab does not)?
I don't know how to know this. They were created with NTP. The status
bar says, format: Windows/DOS. WordPad saw and opened the files as
both regular and unicode.
>(a) copying (using Explorer etc.) a local file which Notetab opensquickly to the network drive in the same location as one of
your "problem" files and trying to open that in Notetab?
>(b) as for (a) but use Save as ...Same.
>Also ... in Options/Tab Bar could you turn ON: Show Name as Tooltipand also for one of your problem files could you right click on its
tab (once open) and "Copy Name" and show us what you get.
I get: \\V-central\my documents\DELUNA_verna\Working Files\Arts.txt
