Thanks for all your support lately Larry!

If you sign up for any of the discussion lists, please do not
post questions about Clips and other scripting languages on the
Basic list. More difficult tasks should be posted on the Clips
or Scripts lists. HTML should be posted on the HTML list and Off
Topic discussion takes place on that list. In short, please leave
the Basic list for the very basic use of NoteTab. Thanks!!!

language, etc. can be used right in the Clips. The symbols are
really quite easy to remember. If it is ^!, then it is a
command. If it is ^$, then it is a function. I think once you
make some Clips you will understand a lot more with 20/20
The following is a download for a Clipbook programming tutorial
called "Clip Class" designed to walk you through Clip writing. It
includes "Getting Started" (which is a web page with a number of
images displaying different parts of NoteTab that deals with
Clipbooks), making a Clipbook Library, adding Clips, and editing
Clips, on to more difficult Clips writing. Be sure to read the
Introduction also. Open ClipClass.clb and then click on the
ClipClass.otl Outline Clip to open the Outline.
All the contents of the zip files go in NoteTab's Libraries
The NoteTab Clip Class List: eMail link follows below. We haven't
really been using it much at all, actually, about never for the
past year or two. I'm too busy now-a-days to keep up with it.
If you have a setup problem (above) it would be a good place to
ask that, but I think you will understand the above. The lessons
start off very basic and, even with NoteTab in general when
talking about the layout. Do the online Getting Started to see
what I mean. I think you will find it all easy to understand.
It builds, one lesson after a lesson; It is best not to skip any
of the first 5 lessons or so. After that you might be up to speed
enough to use the rest as reference.
