the act of writing them is called Clipbook Programming or writing
a Clip. <g> Yes, Clips are scripts. ;)

RegExp bug is that it is not releasing the memory as it uses it
whereas the Clips do to some extent.

been doing since you rebooted last, how big the file(s) is, how
long it has been since you restarted NoteTab, etc... You can
probably do a string in the hundreds though. Normally, what
happens with NoteTab and Clips w/o RegExp is that they will just
start going slower and slower depending on what you are doing.
Very long/large tasks you'll see the mouse pointer start to go
into the hour glass and Windows might even respond in the
Titlebar that NoteTab is not responding. It might even appear to
be locked up, even go all white, but if you let it be it will
eventually finish. I've made over 1500 web pages with a click
back on a Win98 machine with perhaps 356MB RAM and a 400MHz AMD
processor and not that much hard drive. It would take a few
minutes, hour glass creeping, but would complete. Pro is much
better about it than Std/Light. It is the input controls used.

and/or size. See the Clipbook tab in Options for the font in it.
Right click over the Quick List (F6) to change the font in it.
Also see View | Printing Options...
Click on the Titlebar icon of the Favorites dialog (F2) and the
Find/Replace dialogs after resizing them to Save Window State.
No extra charge for that tidbit. :)
