Selected Test Results (selected in 'Test Results' table below)
Installation and almost all features.
The Wine richedit dlls seem to work and the Windows dlls are not needed.
What does not
On the Library Bar - When it is clicked it closes the clipbook. The workaround is to click and drag off the desired library. This happens on all NoteTab Light, Standard, and Pro.
When you minimize and then click on the applicatation to restore it, there is a second "title bar". the developer says that this is because it is a Delphi application. This occured in an earlier beta, but was fixed in 1.0.0.
What was not tested
There was not a full regression test.
The issue with the library bar has been around since beta 0.8 or something.
This occurs on other distributions: Slackware, Debian, and others.
I am not aware of any Gentoo users on that list, but we have Debian, Ubuntu, and Slackware users.
I have the best success with Wine if I uninstall the old version of Wine before installing the new version.
keep a copy of the install for the version that I know works, so if the
new version of Wine introduces new issues, I can easily roll back to a
All the user settings are unaffected by uninstalling Wine. All user settings are kept under /home/username/.wine.
you want to try a completely new install of NoteTab or any other
Windows program and preserve your settings, you can rename the .wine
directory in your user directory.There have been no issues that have
required this for a couple of years.
No special settings have been required to get NoteTab Light or Standard to work with recent versions of Wine. At one point, we did have to copy the Richedit dlls from Windows. This was not needed for installation, only to get text display and actions to work correctly. NoteTab Pro does not rely on the Richedit dlls.
NoteTab Light and Standard both use the rich edit text control, so many users have to get the dlls from Windows and configure Wine to use the native rich edit dlls. In most cases, what works for Light will work for Standard.

NoteTab is the finest text editor, by any standard I can imagine. It is certainly the best I have ever used, having held off many others going back many versions.
That experience was with Windows, and I just got it running under Knoppix 5.1 and Wine. NoteTab is the ONLY Windows application I care about running under Linux. No offense to emacs and vi fans, but I've made almost no progress with either of them despite significant effort.
All I had to do was copy the directory NoteTab ran from under WinXP to Wine's tree and double clicked the exe!
As soon as I got it running, I clicked help, check for updates, and clicked through the download (5.5 up from 5.1), and install.
I like NoteTab so much, I've been paying for it for years. The folks at Fookes Software are wonderful! Their program is great! Wine is great!
