Sorry, what I meant is open an !Edit window and type some text. I 
don't know if this would work with !Zap or !StrongED but !Edit doesn't 
set the file type until you either type some text into the window or 
drop or paste something into it. In the last two cases the file type 
is inherited from the source. Once established, the file type stays 
the same.

With the current version of NS this is only necessary if I want to 
paste some text from some non-text source into the address field as 
described in my previous post.
