What works

I use a wide variety of functions and the majority work very well.

Using and creating clips , libraries, text files, outlines all work very well.

It is possible to configure the open in web browser feature to open either a Windows browser, or to point it to a Linux browser.

What does not

There is an issue that some of us on the NoteTab on Linux list at Yahoo Groups have. I only have the issue at the bottom of outline (OTL) files. When you go to the last line and press ENTER, the cursor does not appear to move, but if you type, the cursor is in the right place.

When selecting a library using the mouse and clicking on the Library Bar, at the bottom above the Status Bar, the user has to hold the mouse and move off the Library Bar, for it to change to the selection.


What was not tested

I have not gotten into all the nooks and crannies of the program.

Additional Comments

I have had good success with NoteTab Pro from version 4.95 on Fedora 3 & 4, and Debian. My Fedora box was switched to Slackware 10.2, then 11, and now 12. NoteTab Pro has worked well with few regressions. I always hang on to the installer for the last version of Wine that works well, just in case. I always uninstall Wine before installing the new version. Running "wineprefixcreate" also seems to help.

HowTo / Notes


I have the best success with Wine if I uninstall the old version of Wine before installing the new version.

I 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 working configuration.

All the user settings are unaffected by uninstalling Wine. All user settings are kept under /home/username/.wine.

If 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 Pro to work.

The best place for questions on NoteTab and Linux is the Yahoo Group.

NoteTab on Linux Yahoo Group

There is a Yahoo Group for NoteTab users who run Linux.

All Linux distributions are welcome and all version of NoteTab are welcome.
