It’s easy :)

The screenshot at <http://newtonresearch.org/connection/NCX-1.jpg> shows NCX 2.0.4 and some Notes I backed up earlier. You can see the ghostly image of “Charlotte’s Song”, an audio Note I am dragging onto the desktop. <http://newtonresearch.org/connection/NCX-2.jpg> shows the scene after I dropped the Note. It has become an AIFC file I can click to play.

Seems I still need to check out Mail V though.

My wife does this in an attempt to convert a Word document to PDF, say. Oh how I miss file type/creator codes.
