What's a Plug-In?
Plug-ins are specially designed components that can be integrated into NeoBook to
provide additional functions not found in the basic program. Properly designed plug-ins
are extremely fast and their use virtually transparent. Once installed, the plug-ins
functions will appear in the Insert Action list along with NeoBooks native commands.
To use a plug-in, simply select one of its commands from the list.
Installation requirements for individual plug-ins may vary, so check with
the plug-in's documentation first. Generally, each plug-in consists of an *.nbp file.
(Some plug-ins may also include additional support files, such as DLLs, etc..) Copy the
*.nbp file and any support files into the "NeoBook 5\Plug-Ins" or "NeoBook
4\Plug-Ins" folder depending on which version you're using. Next, select Install
Plug-Ins from NeoBook's Options menu. Finally, click the Install button and select the
plug-in's *.nbp file. If the installation is successful, you will see the plug-in appear
in the list of installed plug-ins and in NeoBook's Insert Action list (pictured below).
