Re: [NTO] NT Pro v4.95 minor bug
- have you checked the target of your shortcut for NoteTab, to make
sure it isn't activating the activation file (downoaded file)
instead of the Notetab.exe file in the proper folder?

- Hi Eric:
I was offline for a couple of days, but don't see any answers to this one.
You said the only thing you see in the INI file are four HTML settings.
Most (if not all) programs will create any required INI file with default
values if its not found when they open. Assuming its not a permissions
problem of some sort ... You mentioned Network permissions - is the copy of
Notetab you're running somewhere else than on your machine?
Try navigating to the folder containing the NotePro.ini file (while Notetab
is *NOT* open) and rename it to something else (say) notepro.inibak.
Then startup Notetab again and exit it. You should now have a Notepro.ini
with default values; and can try making some changes to View-Options. After
exiting Notetab check to see if these changes are "taking" (examine the file
with Notepad or Wordpad)
Regards ... Alec

> Hi again,
> It's been some weeks since I last posted to the group about this problem,
so I've forwarded my original post for convenience's sake. I have since
upgraded to 4.95, but the problem still persists. Each time I open the
application, it is as though I had never run it before: no settings are
kept, recent files do not appear, and read-me files and tips are all
> I have checked my NotePro.ini file to verify that it is not read-only, and
that changes made to it will in fact be saved; both of these factors seem to
be fine. It has been suggested that I need to edit this file, e.g., add the
line "ShowTips=0". It looks like I can do this, but the file itself appears
to be missing a portion of it's normal data; the only info displayed are
four HTML settings (doctype, charset, etc.) under the heading
"[ClipValues]", and seems to have been generated while I was demonstrating
NT's HTML capabilities to a co-worker.
> Unfortunately, I know very little about working with .ini files, and don't
know how to go about adding additional settings to this one. It does not
appear to be taking changes automatically (I suspect that my network
privileges might be the problem there), so I may need to create the whole
thing from scratch. Can anyone offer advice, or point me to any good online
resources? I don't know if cutting and pasting someone else's NotePro.ini
contents into my own would work, but I'd be willing to give that a try as
