View Full Version : Getting notes from BW6 to BW7

02-24-2006, 02:03 PM
Some of the notes I took in BW6 (and some were no doubt first written in BW5) mysteriously disappear in BW7.

Attached are my notes on Gen 2:18. Putting the quality of my exegesis aside for a moment... When I go to that passage in BW7, my User Notes tab alerts me that I have verse notes, but nothing shows up in the window. So I tried a few things:
If I change the original 2_18.bww to a .txt file, I can see my text (along with rtf formatting codes).
If I change the original to an .rtf file (or a .doc), neither Word nor WordPad show me any text when I open the file.I have no trouble viewing many of my other notes. I haven't had BW7 long enough to see how many notes are missing/invisible like this.

What shall I do? :confused:

Make sure that you have "chapter" notes unchecked in the "User notes" window, since chapter notes are enabled by default. The winodw shows one or the other, but not both.

That's my first thought.

I may not be a senior member of the forums, but I'm not quite that dumb. :D I'm pretty sure chapter notes aren't the problem.

I forgot to upload my file. Instead, I'll just excerpt it. It still won't show. :(

I found another file that won't load, my notes at Gen 3.3:
