Saving notes in OPERA 7

  paulhg 16:26 17 Feb 2004

Calling Opera 7 experts. A useful feature of Opera 7 is the ability to select paragraphs of text from web sites and then save them as "notes". However I would like to save the notes as text files for future reference in a folder outside Opera, avoiding the need to open Opera every time I want to refer to them, also so that I can print them. Is this possible ? Thanks, PaulG.

Opera notes are stored in a plain text file in your \Opera7\Profile directory. You could create a shortcut to this file and open it in Wordpad, then cut and paste to print out what you want. You can also select text on a web page, and choose to print the selection.

For a tip on how to do this click here using notes see my thread on inserting Unicode characters in the Customising Opera Forum click here

Note that Opera 7.50 preview 2 has just been released. If you don't mind taking risks with pre-release software, take a look: click here

Sorry, forget to mention what the tip was for.

On the right-click menu there are two items: insert personal, and notes. I find that insert personal is not very useful as each field is separate. I created a notes folder for my personal details, and a few other folders to organise my notes. Then I removed the "Insert Personal" submenu, and included the notes folders directly on the right-click menu. As long as you keep your notes well organised in not more than five or six folders, this will make accessing them easier.

Thanks for your very helpful advice Pesala.
I also found the advice of MarcFou (Opera Forum - Customising - 16 Feb) extremely helpful. His little add-on works a treat. Thanks to all.
