Version 3.1
Released February 3, 2007

Fixed new editing window not being automatically created when TextPal is
launched without a file parameter.  Fixed TextPal going to an existing
bookmark in the current file if an Open File dialog is canceled.

Enhanced the Rename File command, Alt+Shift+R, to automatically trim
leading or trailing spaces from the new name, and to append the default
extension (configurable in the Settings dialog) if none is specified.
This makes it easier to assign the title of a document as its file name.
For example, place the cursor on the line containing the title, press Home
to go to its start, Shift+End to select its text, and Control+C to copy to
the clipboard.  Then press Alt+Shift+R for Rename, Control+V to paste, and
Enter to accept.  (Unfortunately, you cannot simply press Control+C to
copy the line without selecting because the line feed character that
TextPal appends is problematic for the subsequent paste command.)

Made TextPal check if a file is already open before creating a new window
for it.  If so, the existing window is activated instead, and TextPal says
"Returning" to let you know.  This addresses the problem of accidentally
opening multiple copies of the same file, e.g., when repeatedly using the
Recent Files or List Favorites commands, Alt+R or Alt+L.

Included a new version of the TextPal Tutorial by Jim Homme, which adds a
section on creating structured text files.  This tutorial may be invoked
via the help menu or Alt+Shift+F1 key.

If you installed TextPal 3.0, remember that you can upgrade to the latest
version via the Elevate command on the Help menu, F11.
