My favourite quick note syncing utility – NValt broke with Catalina. I was getting error that it could not find my notes folder, but when I tried to select another notes folder it did not work

Delete the Notational Velocity App from your Applications folder.

I am running OS X 10.11 El Capitan. For a while now Â I have not been able to open my old ClarisWorks documents. (Â I think maybe since Appleworks 6 or so.)
