    I'm a college prof, and often wished for an easy (free) way to get lecture notes and similar text onto my Platinum.

    Then this occured to me: Email gets downloaded to my platinum from my desktop whenever I hotsynch. There I can read and reply to it, and cut and paste.

    Now I simply paste whatever text I want on my visor into an email on my desktop and send it to myself. Once the mail is in my in-box, I hotsynch my visor, and can then read that text in the email app.

    Just thought I'd share.

    I've always used pilot.wiw.org to convert lecture notes on the internet into doc format, then save it in my Files to Install folder. After a hotsync, I can amend them if needed with WordSmith.

    Sorry I'm late on this one. I can't say that I have any specific uses for it. If I find an article, poem, etc. online that I enjoy, I save it on my visor. There's the lecture notes that I mentioned previously. I download articles from the local paper, because I can't get AvantGo to do it. I think our paper did that intentionally, to try and keep people paying the subscription fees. Bastards.

    Hmm, I forgot about that online doc conversion utility. I usually just highlight the text on the page, copy it and paste it to AbiWord (or Word in Windows), save it, then synch it to WordSmith.

    You can copy docs and download it to the Visor using the Coola service as well (www.coola.com)

    I save it as a text file on my desktop. Drop the text file on the Aportis Doc converter which will convert it to a standard DOC format. (works with PDF and TXT)
