    I have a problem with Wordsmith on Palm Desktop. Whenever I use any formatting (bold, italic, underline) it always shows up with little labels and no formatting on Palm Desktop. This is really aggervating. Anyone find a way around this? The problem also happens when I print with PrintBoy standard (hey, I got it free, give me a break!).

    WordSmith uses the standard Rich Text Format whenever formatting is applied. The Memo application (both on the handheld and in the Desktop) does not know what RTF codes are or what they stand for. The only way to prevent this is to NOT apply any formatting to Memo's; that's what WordSmith DOC's are for!

    Yeah, but the enhanced memopad is so much quicker and easier than the DOC editor. I use the DOC editor if I'm writing some report, or something like that, but If I'm just writing down my class notes, and I'm rushing opening up my stowaway, and turning it on, and getting into Wordsmith, it tends to be quicker with the WS memopad, and easier to orgnize on Palm Desktop than scattered in my "my documents" folder. Hmmm. Anything I can copy the stuff into while I'm on my PC that will fix it?

    If you find that works best for you, fine. Just don't use any of WordSmith's formatting features and the Memo format will be retained.

    Or you could be like me and never use the Palm Desktop to read Memos therefore thats not a problem.

    What do you use then? Even Outlook Notes contain the raw RTF codes when formatted in WordSmith.

    I don't use Outlook, closes way too slowly. I use memos for class notes and to jot down urls I find interesting. I also keep Trivia on it. the only time I find myself writing notes for school I print them off using instep print. I haven't tried it on a formatted memo but I may have to convert them to a doc if I wanted to print them with formatting.

    But to be honest, I rarely use Palm Desktop. I use it mostly as an additional backup in case both my Visor and my memplug have problems.

    Just do them all as Memo's and then convert them to DOC's later on when you have more time.

    Set up subdirectories under MyDocuments with your Subject as the name of the folder.

    For instance:

    C:/MyDocuments/Science

    Make the first line of all your Memo's something like:

    Science03December2001

    Then, when you convert them to DOC's and sync them, you can easily know what subdirectory to put them. You would also have the Date in the FileName, thus making it easier to locate should you need it.
