EDIT, FIND & CLIPBOARD
Clip v1.1 is a US $20 ShareWare program. It allows you to copy selected
text (from any application) into Clip's database or copy it to any Folder in the NotePad.
Text in Clip's database can be Pasted . If there is hilited text, you can Paste the entry
BEFORE the selection, BEHIND the selection, or you can REPLACE the selection. If no text
is hilited but there is a insertion point, the text will be inserted. Clip is a floating
application. It has 2 fixed sizes.
Clipper 1.32 - Clipper will place a floating button on your newton
screen with a small scissors icon in it. This button may be dragged anywhere on the
screen, or even partly offscreen. You can select text and drag it onto the button. After
letting go you will hear a small click or a small squeal, letting you know that the text
has been clipped. To access clippings, simple tap on the button, and a popup list will
appear. Selecting an item from the list will paste it after the current insertion point.
There are several other choices available from the menu, and you can move Clipper to the
NotePad's menubar. Credit: Stand Alone Software.
is an application that allows you to quickly drag and drop text from the NotePad (or
anywhere else) onto the clipper button and gain access to the clipping anywhere. Clipper
may be installed as a Notepad button or a floating button. Clipper, KeyMan, and Scrapbook
(Stand Alone packages) all share a common soup for storage of clippings, which means that
anything you clip using Clipper will be accessible using KeyMan and Scrapbook, and vice
versa. 30 day shareware. Credit: Stand Alone Software.
With FindRecent installed the last ten terms one was searching for are
listed in the pop-up menu of the Find slip. This is useful for example if you just looked
up the phone number of someone and as you try to call him or her the line is busy. Then
you look for another number other whatsoever. After a few minutes you want to give the
call another try, but you still can't remember the phone number. Now you just pick up the
name from the list instead of rewriting it. It just takes about 4K of the precious Newton
memory and it doesn't even show up in the Extras drawer. (But it can be deleted via the
Remove Software pop-up, just like every other software package.).
Ever try to find something in the Newton Names app by date? If you have,
you've gotten an alert that tells you that Names doesn't support find by date. Well, NFBD
puts an end to that nonsense. NFBD is an auto-part that adds code to the Names app that
allows it to support the 'Look for dates before' and 'Look for dates after', and on Newton
2.0 "Look for dates on" requests in the find dialog. If you remove NFBD, or the
card it is on, it will remove the added code leaving the Names app as it was. NOTE: When
NFBD is installed, it checks for the presence of cards with no modification date, and adds
one if necessary. NFBD is freeware, and is compatible with both Newton 1.x and 2.0
NotePopper places a button in your status bar (compatible with other
similar programs like StatusBar Buttons.) If you've just written a bunch of stuff on a
note and decide to move it to another note, it's usually a pain to drag it to the side,
find the other note, paste it in, and then return to your original note. Enter NotePopper.
After initially selecting your text hit the NotePopper button and a list of all notes in
your current folder will pop up. Selecting one of those will copy the selected text to the
end of that note. At the top of the list are two other choices - "New Note" and
"New Dated Note." Shareware.
QuickFind 2.5.2 enhances the Find function of the Apple Newton
MessagePad in three ways. It maintains a lists of the last ten terms that were searched.
It gives you more options than just searching the current area or in all areas. And it
makes the Find button work as comfortable as the Assist button does. Finally QuickFind
2.5.2 includes the functionality of FindRecent 2.0, one of my Newton FreeWare titles. The
ten last terms that were searched are listed in the 'Look for' pop-up menu for your
convenience. It also offers the possibility to store up to ten more terms permanently in
this pop-up menu.
QuickFind 3.0 - works on (and only on) Newton MessagePads with OS
version 2.0. QuickFind 3.0 enhances the Find function of the Apple Newton MessagePad in
three ways: 1. It maintains a lists of terms that were searched in the "Look
for" pop-up menu so they can be easily found again. 2. It gives you more options than
just searching everywhere, in selected applications or in the current one. 3. It adds an
AutoFind function that usually lets you use the find slip without hitting a single button.
Enhanced 'Look for' pop-up menu. With QuickFind 3.0, the nine last terms that were
searched are added to the 'Look for' pop-up menu for your convenience. It also offers the
possibility to store up to nine more terms permanently in this pop-up menu. To add a
term permanently, just use the 'Add ' item that shows up whenever there is some text in
the Find slip.
is a way to view and sort frequently used images, text, and ink on the Newton. Any text

them into notes, suitable for printing or faxing. Included in the Scrapbook archive is
