Welcome to The X-Files Lost and Found Board.

Having trouble remembering the title or author of a fanfic? Search for it here. Are you a wealth of fanfic knowledge? Please, share it.
But when you post a request, PLEASE be specific in the subject line. Title, author, or genre of fic will narrow down the search and direct
people who may know what you're looking for. Generic or vague "Looking for a fic" subject lines are not helpful, as that's all we do here.
And while off topic posts are allowed, we'd all appreciate an OT in the subject line so we know you're not asking a fic question.
It's all about the fic, so it's all good. Thank you for your co-operation.

And don't forget to check out The Board Guidelines!

Re(1): Have a question

I just checked those out and it's not easy, that's for sure! Usually completed stories will have a file for the whole thing but these don't seem to. So the first bit of bad news is that you'd have to save each individual chapter.

The good news is that I saved a chapter as html, opened it in Word, then resaved as a text file with line breaks checked, and it came out okay. The second bit of bad news is that you'd have clean up the files quite a bit. The extra text at the top and bottom of each chapter would still be there, but it would be possible to copy/paste the text you want into a new file. It would just take quite a while with the number of chapters this story has but copy/paste would be the fastest way.

Sorry not to have better news, but bottom line, yes, you can save them in a better format than html. Just not easily or quickly. 8-(
