Files created

Files created by in-built Tscii editors

·      Kindly read this help topic and also make a note of the abbreviations used before proceeding to read further. If your only interest is to type directly in Tamil (Hindi, etc.) in external applications (MS-Word, Gmail, Skype, Blog, Facebook, etc.), then you need not read the following.

·      If you had created your file, say 'test1.rtf', using TT, then 2 more additional files will be created with `e` and `eb` suffix. When test1.rtf is reopened, both the 'Tamil text area' and 'English text area' will be populated.  To edit the Tamil file, you can proceed with TT only. i.e. you can type/edit in ETA only.

·      If you had created your file, say 'test1.rtf', using NTT, then no additional files will be created. When test1.rtf is reopened, only the Tamil text area will be populated. To edit test1.rtf, you can proceed with NTT only. i.e. you can type/edit in TTA only.

·      If at any point of time, you wish to open test1.rtf alone for NTT in Azhagi after having generated all three files (i.e. test1`e`.rtf and test1`eb`.rtf also exist), then externally copy test1.rtf to some other file (say 'test2.rtf') and then open 'test2.rtf' in Azhagi.

·      If test1.rtf is deleted by mistake, but test1`eb`.rtf and/or test1`e`.rtf are available, then test1.rtf can be regenerated (Lost file recovery, as such) by opening the test1`eb`.rtf file (if available) or the test1`e`.rtf file otherwise. Azhagi will do the regeneration (recovery) for you after confirming for the same.

·      The '.rtf' files generated with Azhagi should not be edited with some other editor at any point of time. If edited, then trying to use these files with Azhagi will result in error. If you really want to edit them, do copy that file (say test1.rtf) to ‘test1back.rtf’ and do the editing in ‘test1back.rtf’ using other editors like MS-Word, etc.
