Re: Persistent addition to recently opened? Was Re: Notebooks

One solution--albeit one that requires my product: A WorkLife
Framework-- is to keep these snippits in the Notebooks subdirectory of
one of A WorkLife FrameWork's Diary directories.  Then when you choose
that Diary, the associated Notebooks Palette

http://scientificarts.com/worklife/documentation/notebookspalette.html

will have all those snippits notebooks listed automatically and
appropriately updated.

I hope that this helps...
