Newtonlink Options - Export/Import/Sync Newton Notes
Newtonlink is able to import Newton notes to a desktop system, export notes
from a desktop to Newton notes and to synchronize Newton notes with notes
on your desktop system. Currently there are two desktop notes programs
supported : KDE Kjots and
While importing Newton notes Newtonlink gets all notes informations via
Sloup and writes them into an intermediate file ~/.newtonlink/newtonlink.notes.
This file is written in the common Kjots file format. After that, other
filter routines convert this intermediate file into a file format for
the supported desktop notes programs. You can edit the name and path
of these desktop notes files in the Newtonlink config file.
Exporting desktop notes to Newton notes is currently only supported with
Kjots notes. Newtonlink reads the file ~/.newtonlink/newtonlink.notes.send,
which has to be in Kjots format, and sends them to the Newton notes via

You can edit the name and path
of the Kjots file in the Newtonlink config file. Notes title and

Option -xrolo : Get Newton notes for Xrolodex input file
newtonlink -xrolo [file]
This function gets all notes of your Newton and writes them to a
Xrolodex input file.
You can also select a optional filename. If you do not give a
filename a default filename is used. You can edit the name and path
of this default file in the Newtonlink config file. Notes title and
notes type are written into a header line at the top of each xrolodex
card (please look at the Xrolodex screenshot below).

After that, Newtonlink converts this Xrolodex file to an postscript
printout, starts a previewer and finally starts Xrolodex with the
new input file. You can select the name and path of the postscript
converter (default: a2ps), the previewer (default: ghostview) and
Xrolodex in the Newtonlink config file.
