Most cases, you won't need to use the “Set Primary Notes File” or “Start New
Notes File” buttons, since you are prompted automatically to create the Notes File
once you've edited anything that needs saving and it will automatically remember
that file and reload it the next time you run King James Pure Bible Search.
However, you may wish to start a brand new Notes Files to save a completely
different set of Notes or to create a little Notes File to give to someone else (or
Highlighters or Cross-References too). Clicking the “Start New Notes File” button
will not lose any changes you've made. They will automatically be saved to the
current Notes File and then it's closed and the slate is wiped clean and a new
Notes Files is created in memory, just as if this were running King James Pure
Bible Search for the first time.
Similarly, “Set Primary Notes File” saves and closes the current Notes File and
lets you open another Notes Files to view or edit. If you've made changes and
haven't yet saved them when you click on “Set Primary Notes File”, you'll be
prompted to save your changes before loading another Notes File.
The “Primary Notes Filename” edit box is a read-only edit box that shows you
the current Notes File path name so you can see what file you currently have
open. This is set automatically whenever you first save a new Notes Files or use
“Set Primary Notes File” to load a new Notes Files.
By default, when a Notes File is created, it will be setup to automatically write a
Backup File with an extension of “.bak” when saving the Notes File. That is, before
it writes the new changes to the .kjn (Notes File), it will copy the old Notes File to a
separate Backup File in the same path with an added extension, which by default
is “.bak”. This is a safety measure so that if anything goes wrong when writing
your Notes Files, at least you'll have your previous copy safely stored. You might
lose your new changes, but at least you won't lose the whole file.
The “Keep Backup” check box lets you control whether or not a Backup File is
created. And “Backup File Extension” is the extra File Name Extension that you
wish to add to the Backup File. By default “bak” is used and it is entered without
the period (“.”). If you forget and add the period, the extra period will be removed
for you from this edit box, as it is automatically inserted while saving the file.
