Yep, everyone else just gets it. Sorry for the tone of this email, but
everyone is surly after the spate of anti-spam emails.
Totally kidding ... it takes a minute to figure out and this one because of
the nature of it was posted to the html group. There is a clips group where
everyone speaks some level of notetab lingo.
One of the features of notetab that makes it very good for automating html
generation is the ability to have commonly used things, like tags for
example, or even the whole page, generated via a notetab clip. Clips are
little snippets of code which can be invoked.
Clips are contained in libraries. One of the libraries that comes standard
with Notetab is the HTML library and another is CSS1. You may already be
using these but not know what you are doing is invoking a clip.
Along the bottom of the notetab screen there are buttons for each available
library (I think some non-standard set-ups can hide some of the buttons).
Click on one of those buttons and a verticle divider should appear (or
disappear as this acts as a toggle). On the left side is standard.
Clicking on a black item will invoke a clip which does something, like
insert the body tag.
You can add clips to this. Copy a clip to the windows clipboard by
highlighting it and hitting control C, then right click in the library
window and choose add from clipbook and you will have created a new clip.
You can then right click on that clip and choose edit.
Discussion of clips should be on the clips list and not here, but posting
this here may result in encouraging some of you to go find out about clips.
They are awesome and powerful.
It may not be totally intuitive at first, but it is worth the effort!
