exchanging files with an earlier version

Post by engine » Fri Mar 23, 2007 3:13 pm

For the time being, I have 2006 on my desktop and 2002 on my Zaurus - what's the best "save as" option to use if I want to use files from the desktop PC on the Zaurus? Of course, I want to do as little reworking as possible <g>

It's best to use .doc or .rtf file format. However, TextMaker 2006 supports some features not available for TextMaker 2002, so you may lose features.

Thanks! I had tried unicode .txt, but Textmaker 2002 crashes every time I try to insert these files

TextMaker 2002 doesn't support Unicode. Please use a non-Unicode file format.

Thanks, I'd picked up on that from another posting ... and noticed that while I can't use Insert > Document, I _can_ use Edit > External paste to copy unicode text from an editor. Either way, problem solved.
