How can I import ACSII text files?

For ASCII text, use the following steps for import.


  1. Edit the document, and then click where you want the imported file to appear.
  2. Click File > Import. (This option is dim if the field you have clicked is not a rich-text field.)
  3. In the Import dialog box, click ASCII Text in the Files of type list. The file you are importing can have any or no file extension.
  4. Select the file's drive and directory and then select the file.
  5. Click Import.
  6. Specify whether to preserve the existing line breaks in the text. If you click Yes, Notes® saves the original line breaks, otherwise Notes fits as many characters as it can in a line. The default is 75 characters.


Tip: If you see Preserve existing line breaks? while attempting to import some other type of file, such as an image, you neglected to select the file type before clicking Import.
