Re: [Clip] Is there a way to paste contents into a MS Word templateautomatically?
While computers store all files in binary form, us people differentiate between binary and text files. The term "binary file" is usually reserved for files containing compiled programs, specially coded text files (such as .doc), images, and any file containing unprintable characters other than EndOfLine, Tab, Form Feed, etc.
Text files on the other hand are files that contain only printable characters (meaning characters that even the most primitve printer (and console) can process.
Lots of files contain some non-printable characters. Often mixed with lots of printable ones. For your convenience NoteTab will load such files, replacing these non-printables with a printable character, such as a period, as designated by the user (see Options-->Files-->Substitute Binary Character).
