You definitely have to make some adjustments in the way you do things in
the Windows world.
I know I did but that is progress (or is it<G>)
I looked for over a year to find a Windows based editor to replace my
beloved QEdit and NoteTab Pro is it.
NoteTab pro is 10 times more customizable than Q-Edit - BUT IN DIFFERENT WAYS.
It is basically like using any other Windows program but with the ability
to develop "Clips" (Macros, but not the keyboard macros that you are used
to) which can be anything from text segments to mini applications.
The power and expanse of what you can do with NoteTab is pretty much
limited only by your needs and your imagination.
Probably the most difficult transition from QEdit to NoteTab is that of
using the mouse more and Shortcut keys less.
The next version of NoteTab which is being developed now will have fully
customizable keys very much like QEdit has.
To accomplish what you want to do, I would suggest the following:
1. Join the Clips list
2. Thoroughly familiarize yourself with the Help on Clip Programming
portion of the Help Menu
3. Go to http://jimbow.com/ and download "Basic Clip Basics"
4. Download http://www.notetab.net/clipclass/clipclass.zip
(All the contents of the zip files go in NoteTab's Libraries folder)
5. Join the The NoteTab ClipClass List
6. Read a lot and ask many questions "On the Clips List", not on the Basics
7. Monitor all of the NoteTab lists for a month or so until you get the
drift of what is going on.
