Start Jot+ Notes with a Specific Notefile

Q. How can I start Jot+ Notes up with a specific document?

A. The easiest way to do this is to create a shortcut to the document in question. Since Jot+ Notes is associated with .jot files, Jot+ Notes should be launched automatically.
Here’s an example to do this:

  1. Locate the .jot file you want in the Explorer and select it
  2. Right-click to bring up the context menu
  3. Select the ‘Copy’ item
  4. Now click on the Desktop
  5. Right-click on the Desktop to bring up the context menu
  6. Select the ‘Paste Shortcut’ item
  7. Now if you double-click on this shortcut, Jot+ will be launched with the document loaded

You can also modify the shortcut used to launch Jot+ Notes, but that is more complicated. Please see your Windows documentation for more information on shortcuts.

Finally, Jot+ Notes can be told to automatically load at startup the last notefile it was looking at when it was last used. In Jot+ Notes:

  1. Select the Tools | Options command
  2. In the options dialog, select the File tab
  3. Check the Open Last Notefile option
  4. Press OK
