Press F4 to open the clipbook panel and right click on it. Select "Add New
Clip" and when the input box for the name opens type in a name for your new
clip. When the clipbook editor opens, type your name on the ddocument
labeled "[Clips] and then click on the save button on the toolbar to save
it. Now open a new document by clicking on the "New Document" button on
the toolbar and when the new blank document appears go to the clibook list
and double click on the new clip you entered. Your name or what ever else
you typed into the clip will be pasted into the new document.
If you go to the menu bar and select Help/Help on Clip Programming, you
will get a special help file with all of the clip codes in it and an
explanation of what each one does. The alphabetical list of clip commands
are on the index tab of this file.
^!Activateapp does NOT start another session of NoteTab. What this command
does is to restore NoteTab from a minimized state on the task bar. This is
more advanced that you are ready for right now but I can demonstrate it for
you. Add a new clip as I mentioned above and name it "Hide and Show NTB".
This will be a clip that will minimize NoteTab to the task bar, wait three
seconds and restore it to full display again. Write this code into the
"[Clips]" document and run it as I said above to see it work.
If you look up the command for Activateapp, you will see:
Activates the NoteTab application Window. If NoteTab is minimized or behind
other windows, the window is restored and brought to the front.
If you want to start another instance of NoteTab, the command would be as
^!"C:\Program Files\NoteTab Pro\NotePro.exe" /INST=01
The first part is the full path and name of the executable file in quotes
which will launch NoteTab and the /INST=01 is the command line parameter
which will cause NoteTab to launch a second instance of itself no mater
what the default settings are.
I see that Jody has already posted you again to please not post to the
basic list on this and I see that you have moved to the clips list. So
this is a reply to you for that.
