Importing xml

Postby danielson » Sun Oct 17, 2010 6:54 pm

Hi,

When i save a webpage with Opera browser it becomes an .xml file.
Yet CN fails to import it.
Is this because there are different kinds of .xml files?

yep there is a specific layout for CN Notes in XML it goes something like this:

Code: Select all

<?xml version="1.0" ?>
<notebook>
<note title="CintaNotes SideBar width" date="2009-05-11" time="06:42:50" source="CintaNotes Forum • View topic - [Suggestion] SideBar width - Mozilla Firefox" link="http://www.cintanotes.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=150&sid=3d80595a72bf85b2af9207efe6f7622b" tags="cintanotes tip">
<![CDATA[ You can add the following line to the cintanotes.settings file to change the default width:

app.mainframe.tagsidebar.width = 200

200 is width in pixels here.

This is just a single exported note but it should give you the idea :D

I concur. The proper way to get the information into CN would be selecting text on the page and pressing the clipping hotkey (Ctrl+F12 by default).
