NoteTab to do nothing. NoteTab may independently execute this form of
Clip if a predefined set of conditions are met or if an expected
event occurs. NoteTab recognizes a Clip to be of this format when the
Clip Header is preceded by an Underscore.
>Stephen and Jim,
This is all very well, but seems a bit awkward.
For example, if the underscore is as you say, a special character,
then perhaps NTP should handle its use better. For example, if I use
the underscore character as the first character in a clip name as an
attribute of the Clip command (a very normal thing to do initially
for most clip writers), then sensible error message should point me
in the right direction. Instead, I had to research the "work
around". Wasted time. Also, I found no ready source of help on this
topic in NTP help.
Where are special character characteristics described?
