On my Newton, I have two separate extensions that do basically the
same thing. IIRC, only one of them will work with books. Maybe you
deleted the wrong one?

Works, out of the box, does not support HWR. However, there are some
extensions you can download that will add that ability to Works. Check
on I forget which one I have.... WriteHere maybe? But
there are two or three, so it shouldn't be too hard to find! There are
also tons of goodies for Works, rulers, stationery, stamps, etc. I
think you can find it all on Go wild!

I believe so, yes.

Hm. that's a toughie. Have you tried emailing them? Doesn't NCU have
an export feature? Maybe try exporting one note at a time, or as
separate notes. I seem to recall having problems in Mac NCU exporting
multiple notes to one file in the past--long ago past,
