380Re: Notetab 5.5 script timing differences from NTB4.95
- Jan 15, 2008Thanks Sheri,
I had been moving to these other commands you reference for any new
scripts, it's just reworking the old ones I was working to avoid.
How does the direct text entry on a line compare to the ^!Keyboard
command? I'm referring to when you just direct enter text to be put in
a document when the script runs. Is this the fastest way to put text
in? It's definitely the easiest!
