      Dave,

      An otl file is a regular text file that has

      = V4 Outline MultiLine NoSorting TabWidth=30

      as the first line of the file. If you add this to a text file, no matter
      what the extension, NoteTab will see an otl.

      Each topic is set off by

      H="topicname"

      If you search for the H=" and go up a line or back 3 characters, you
      will have the end of the topic.

      There are a couple of ways to handle this. The file could be read into
      memory and processed looking for the H=". Or you could make a copy of
      the file without the first line and act on it via a clip(s) in NoteTab.
      Or you could build a clip to go from topic to topic and highlight the
      whole topic with a select all and then go to the end of the selection.
      It all depends on what you are trying to do.
