Only trouble i have converting 2.2 Windows notebooks to 3.0 Linux format is some of the packages have changed names in mathm 3.0. I'm not on my pc right now, but i think you click one of the small top squaresin the pop-up box and the convert button at the bottom is highlighted, then you click on it. : What must I do to open an old notebook, while crossing platforms? : BTW, it just occurred to me that DOS and UNIX differ in the way they end : a line of text. Is it because the DOS files contain two control : characters at the end of each line that I am not able to open them? The dos CR-LF versus unix LF doesnt seem to be a problem.
