    Does anyone know of a patch/method that will let me import text files directly into Quickword?

    Alternatively, does someone have a way to transfer text files into a memo, since QW can import memos....

    Of course, Copy and Paste functions are available on the desktop (from text file to the Palm Desktop Memo app to Treo via Hotsync) and on the Treo - you'll need an app like SiEd to load the text file on the Treo.

    tx Bill, for your help here.

    I did try copy and paste, but it has limitations in Clipboard size.

    The need springs from a desire to download/read Gutenberg eBooks. Mostly, these are text files, 200k+, and the large copy/paste fails. I used FileZ to change the extension to .htm ~ QW reads the file, but loses the line break so it becomes difficult to read sensibly.

    SiEd does the first 90% ~ the file is absolutely readable! So it solves the most pressing need - thanks.

    I would still like to import into QW so that I can generate a true eBook with Table of Contents, bookmarks, etc.

    According to this, you should be able to open text files with QuickWord.

    Thanks for making the effort to dig further.

    sadly .... there lies the difference between the documentation and the shipped product...

    the system has an import facility for memo files and eBooks, but not .txt.

    in its drop down lists, it will show native (MS) files, Palm eBook files, and its own "word" files, but nary a hint of .txt

    I have been a (registered) user of QO products since the earliest days of QuickSheet, (and been down the road from the first Palms though the V's, the 600 and now the 650!) but I am seriously thinking of writing off the investment and migrating to D2G.

    imho, they just have not made the step up.
