- Export to text files is easy in ConnectedText. I exported the text files to a folder called Texthaven
- Texthaven uses Markdown as its markup language. So, I had to transform some of the codes, Like "*" for ConnectedText's "//". I also had to change the double with a single square bracket, and removed the markup for predicates, categories, and some other things Easy enough with a program like Search&Replace for the Mac. It took a while, but it worked well.
- A bigger problem was that Texhaven uses ANSI, while ConnectedText uses UTF8, but I finally got that done with CPConverter after several trials, had to rename the directory it created, and was good to go.
- Texthaven opened the directory without problem, and it also opened the text files, as expected. However, editing them did not always work (or perhaps it just took too long for my patience). It seemed a bit erratic.
- This may have been due to the fact that I do not have a registered copy--at least in part. I was determined to buy a copy, if it had worked flawlessly. But I don't want to take the risk, since it had significant hiccups. I could not create an index file either, for instance. Including images was tedious as well. So, I deleted the directory again and gave up on Texthaven.
Still, I am amazed how well the ConnectedText text files work in nVALT, and how quickly nVALT is in opening links, etc.
