Re: [Clip] Clip Editor is Active???
- Hi Ed,
I looked at an earlier posting and it appears that what you are referring
to as a template is really a clipbook library with the name HTML.clb. When
I go to this library, the first clip there is the same as the one that I
just posted with the name of "New Web Page". So you can use that as part
of your model but as I said before, you need to create a new clipbook
library and copy the clips to it so that you can play with them without
risking the original libraries.
For quick information on the NoteTab file and directory structure and formats go to
and download "NoteTab Intro for Newbies"
For quick information on the the different types of NoteTab "Clips" (macros or scripts) and what they do, and how to use them go to
and download "Basic Clip Basics"
You can find more info on Clip Writing in the Help Menu and at:
(All kinds of neat goodies)

Templates are special animals and they can interact with clips which can
make it confusing. To work on a template, Ed, you have to do file /
template / open and then save it under a different name right away
before modifying it. They are very special files. They are also
powerful when you figure out what they do.

Actually going to the menu and selecting file/template/open will not allow
you to edit a template file. This action actually opens a new document
based on the template file. Opening the HTML template this way will open a
new HTML file ready for you to edit similar to the way the new file command
opens a new noname01.txt file.
To open the template files for editing, you should select
file/template/edit. To create a brand new template file select
- Yep, I knew what I wanted to say! I just didn't :-)
I meant edit of course.
If you open a template it does it's thing Ed.
Buy you can edit it. Click edit, immediately save under a diff. name
and then whack away. That way you don't affect the "real" template.
