Hi, Roy. I haven't tried to manually save them, except as I described above (by pasting them in a Word document). My User Files Location is c:...documents\e-sword\. Funny thing, though, my previous notes were all under the Topic Notes tab! That's great! I don't know how they got there, but that works for me. I had closed it last night expecting my notes to be gone when I opened it today, but when I opened e-Sword, the Topics tab deployed and my notes were there. Perhaps I should be using that tab instead.
Thanks to everybody for attempting to assist me. I greatly appreciate it.
