where is rich text formatting stored when storage is plain text?

where is rich text formatting stored when storage is plain text?

hi,

I spent some time digging around but it wasn't obvious to me how rich text
formatting is retained when storage is set to plain text. It's not in the
text file and doesn't appear to be in the extended attributes -- where is
it? (I'm investigating writing a sync tool).

thanks,
adam

Adam,

Text formatting is always stored in the Notes & Settings database file:
	https://github.com/scrod/nv/wiki/Notes-%26-Settings%2C-Interim-Note-Changes-files

If your synchronizing tool needs external access to NV's textual styles, 
then you can simply set
	Preferences > Notes > Storage > Store and read notes on disk as:
to
	"Rich Text Format Files *"

Regards,

Zach
