+ FAQ0020 - When I open my NOTEPAD .txt files, NOTEFILE drops (loses) the first character in the file. Why?

+ FAQ0030 - How can I modify the index line of a card? I try to modify the first line of the card, but this change is not reflected in the Notes Index List.

+ FAQ0040 - The program opens in the middle of the screen. But when I open my NTF formatted file, the program window shifts to the right so that the right end of the window, including the window controls on the title bar, are off the screen. I can reposition the window without problem, but would rather the window didn’t shift.
