Note Pad

Note Pad can be used to write up daily notes or used as a sheduler.

menu/Tools/Notepad/Edit

Opens the Note Pad window.

With the Note Pad option enabled (menu/Notepad/Auto-On), Note Pad will auto-check for any previously saved notes for the current date when Winlog32 is started.
This can provides a useful reminder for expeditions, schedules or birthdays!

The current date will be selected ready to make comments for the day.
If the Log is not positioned at the current date then the date is taken from the Log QSO date, thus any notes already entered for that date can be retrieved.

When the Note Pad window is opened and there are no notes for the current date, Note Pad will start at the current date
If the log is positioned at another QSO date, the Note Pad date will be populated from the QSO date.
Use this method to retrieve notes for any previous date/notes previously made matching the Date criteria in the Log.

One page only per date can be used in the Note Pad.
