Yes, you have to save the decoded text to a file and then open that in WordPad or Jarte. Copying the text directly into the program doesn't work. If you are having trouble getting the block to decode properly, it may be a camera problem. The camera may have difficulty capturing the code completely(it's a very big, very complex block). You may have to click on the image to expand it(the small image is a thumbnail), and then right-click on that(if you have a Windows browser, I presume non-IE browsers can do this also) and save the picture(or copy it to a picture-manipulation program, save it from there) and then scan that. I don't know if it can be copied directly into the decoding program and scanned successfully. The whole thing is a kludge because QR wasn't set up to do this as I said at the beginning and this project pushes the boundries of QR. Would anyone like to try encoding the text file in some other system to see if that works better. I doubt any other system could encode Cody directly.
