resend: browser previews: back to basics
- View SourceMy apologies ... my email disappeared into never-neverland this weekend and
I didn't receive any answers to my query. I have since noticed that it will
reload the same page in the original window, but when I check a different
page, it opens a new window. K
Installed latest version of NoteTab (4.92), and now when I preview a page
in a browser window (right now IE6 is the primary browser selected), it
opens a new window each time - tho bringing the original window to the
fore. I can't seem to find any place in the options to make it always load
into the open window. Hummh!
(Must admit that at almost the same time I installed DSL and it did screw
around with IE when it installed. Have since uninstalled it - my cable
conn. was almost 4-times faster ... but perhaps DSL changed some of the IE

what it does now. If not the Shift, then try Ctrl. I think it
has to do with the Main and Other browser (or perhaps browser
specific), but I haven't really ever studied it deep enough.
Anyway... I like doing the following and be done with it. I've
used it from the early days. Works fine; lasts a long time. :)
You can force browsers to reuse the same window when View in Browser
is used by inserting the following key under the [Options] section
in NoteTab's INI file. To use the same browser window all the time
make "NewBrowserWindow" a 0 (zero). If you want to always open a
new window, make it a 1 (one).
You may edit the INI file inside NoteTab if you desire. Simply save
the file with an exclamation mark (!NotePro.ini or !NoteTab.ini) in
front of it and restart NoteTab. If you use another editor you need
to close NoteTab first else your editing will be overwritten on
shutdown of NoteTab.
Note: In NoteTab v4.92 the default varies with different browsers.
If you do not use the "NewBrowserWindow" entry, experiment with the
different browsers by holding the Ctrl key down while clicking on
the icons or using the keyboard shortcuts.
