A good overview of the two!

You mentioned you used the note capability of the new connectivity pack.
Actually, that was one of the main reasons I purchased the new pack. After
loading, though, I did not see how it could work for me. It moved my note
files over as one file. Plus, it only moved the current view on OGO over.

I would be interested in how you move the note information over and use it
on your desktop. In particular, what program on your desktop you use to
reformat. Since I could not figure it out, I simply stayed with Clip & Go
for that feature.
