  1. Can’t restore default screen view

    I absolutely cannot return to the default screen view (memo board tree shown in left pane and notes of current memo board shown in right pane) Somehow I inadvertently clicked something which lost that view and nothing – literally nothing (!) seems to restore it. Help would be appreciated.

  2. NoteZilla stores data under:
    Windows XP: “C:\Documents and Settings\\Application Data\Conceptworld\NoteZilla\”
    Windows Vista: “C:\Users\\App Data\Roaming\Conceptworld\NoteZilla\”

    1. Exit NoteZilla
    2. Go to the above folder and delete the file layout.xml
    3. Run NoteZilla

    The memoboard tree’s position is reset to the right position.

  3. I can’t migrate Notezilla files from my old (“O”) laptop
    (Windows 7, 64 bit) to my new (“N”) laptop with the same OS.
    I have tried this 2 ways.

    First, I went to O and to the Notezilla file at:
    C>Users>Username>AppData>Roaming>Conceptworld>
    Notezilla
    and selected all files (Cntrl-A) from WITHIN Notezilla and copied them to the Notezilla file on the N computer. Didn’t work.

    Second, I went to O and copied the ENTIRE Notezille file & its contents and pasted into N under Conceptworld. Didn’t work.
    Seems like your XP/Vista blog instruction should have worked
    on Windows 7 but didn’t . Help please.
