The PAGEONE programs provide a powerful, flexible document processor for small to medium size files where the major emphasis is print formatting. PAGEONE is a hybrid type of wordprocessor; it contains many features either not found on many large wordprocessors (for instance, a chain-printing device) or so difficult on them that most people do not use them (line oriented formatting with embedded commands). It is especially useful for making letters, flyers, documents and forms of all types; there is even a "typewriter" mode for dashing something off. It is easy to learn, and over 90% of its instructions are displayed on the screen at all times alongside the work processed. For greater efficiency of operation, formatting is line oriented and editing capabilities are fully screen oriented. System Requirements: None. How to Start: Type GO (press enter).

THIS IS A DEMONSTRATION FILE OF SOME OF THE FEATURES OF PAGEONE. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- You can place text on the right or on the left. or perhaps in the center? You can justify both sides of long lines out to the margins like this or you can take a couple of short words and set them on each side like this. or even three Using margins of 10 left and right I am going to show you how you could hang text around a photograph or other illustration. Now changing the margins to 10 left and 40 right. This will leave a place within the text for an illustration to go. When you reach the bottom of your illustration, just return the margins to their original settings and you have it. ----------------------------------------------------------- You can even set a very narrow column at any place on the paper width you wish by just varying the margin settings. If you use large words it is better to hyph- enate or you may find you have two words on a line with a lot of white space in be- tween them. ----------------------------- A new and it's a different way to make your print-outs really stand out from all the rest of the ordinary ho-hum sort of bland and not very interesting reports that you get on your desk every day.

VERSIONS OF PAGEONE AVAILABLE: 4.02pc version distributed by PC-SIG 3.01 for TRS-80 Models I & III (4 runs in the III mode)* 5.00pc current IBM and compatibles version (*a limited subset of PAGEONE) INVISIBLE CHARACTERS: If you are using text files created by another word processor and you are having trouble with them, the problem is probably imbedded control characters or 'high bit' characters in the text. If this sort of problem arises, use the provided utility program 'FILECONV.COM' to process the file for use by PAGEONE. Please be aware that if the lines in the file are longer than 79 characters, PAGEONE will truncate them to 79 characters. We cannot gaurantee that files from other text systems will work well with PAGEONE. first printing--February 1986 page 1 PAGEONE DOCUMENT PROCESSING SYSTEM FOR TANDY 1000, 1200,IBM PC AND COMPATIBLES Copyright 1986 by Roy Scott & Norene Scott Distributed by Norosco Research--Bakersfield, California 1.0--OVERVIEW OF PAGEONE PAGEONE is a specially designed document processing system for small to medium sized jobs. It contains many features that are either not found in many of the large word processing systems, or these features in such systems are so difficult to learn that most people do not use them. PAGEONE creates a file that is one letter size page (8.5 x 11 inches) long. This makes it especially useful for making letters, flyers, documents and forms of all types. PAGEONE is very easy to learn as over 90% of the instructions for its use are displayed on the screen along with your work at all times. PAGEONE is a hybrid type of word processor, with the formatting being line oriented for great flexibility and full screen editing for greatest efficiency of operation. Since a normal printed page has 66 lines and the maximum that can be displayed on a normal screen is 25 lines, some method of simulated screen display had to be devised. This was done in the following way: The 66 lines per printed page have been broken down into 3 video screens, each with 22 lines of 80 character text. The bottom two lines on the screen are used as (24) status and (25) information lines. Line 23, which is not used by text, is used as a message area for updated information about line length, lines being full and and end-of-file being reached. Each line will hold 79 characters maximum. The 79 character maximum was chosen not only because odd numbered lines center and justify better, but with some older model printers that have an 80 character buffer, an 80 character line results in double spacing. Spaces in the file are represented by small graphics blocks that will disappear as you proceed over them, they are for visual use only. As you reach the end of each video screen, you will automatically advance to the next screen. This all sounds complex, but with just a little use it will become easy. What you see is what you get (wysiwyg). PAGEONE is written in Pascal, then compiled using the Turbo Pascal system, so it operates directly from your DOS. This results in a saving in memory as Basic does not have to be active in the system, and it is fast! To activate PAGEONE, simply type PAGEONE from the DOS ready prompt, after loading any other resident programs. Minimum system requirements for using this program are: IBM PC or compatible type computer with minimum of 128K bytes of memory*, DOS 2.0 or greater, an 80 column monitor and 1 floppy drive. A printer is recommended. As a point of interest, please note that all documentation for PAGEONE was created with PAGEONE. *If DOS SHELL feature invoked, 256K will be needed for most applications. 1.1--INSTALLING PAGEONE ON YOUR SYSTEM PAGEONE is distributed on a standard 9 sector MSDOS format diskette. For use, all that needs to be done is transfer the files on the diskette to a DOS diskette using the commands that are appropriate to your system. Then store your original diskette is a safe place in case of need. page 2 TURBO LIGHTNING from Borland International works very well with PAGEONE. Load it prior to PAGEONE and pull down the enviornment section. Choose one of the environments that you do not have a program for and modify it, naming it PAGEONE. Change the key assignments to your system if necessary. The following changes must be made for PAGEONE. Item "M" should be set to "screen", item "N" to "050", and item "P" to item "C" on the secondary menu. Since this program uses alternate key combinations there is no conflict with the normal PAGEONE function key assignments. 1.2--FUNCTION KEYS USED IN PAGEONE Material in the angle brackets < and > indicates a key. Following is a list of the function keys as they are used in PAGEONE: <F1> to delete a line, cursor must be on the first space of the line. <F2> or <enter> to place an end of line (EOL) marker. (see subfunction list below) <F3> to exit the edit mode, you will have the option to save your file. <F4> to create a string of characters horizontally. Any character on the keyboard can be used in this string, the cursor must be on the first space of the line. <F5> to load or dump the cut & paste buffer. Cursor must be on the first space of the line. First use marks the start as the line indicated by the cursor, second use marks the end as the line above the line indicated by the cursor. Place cursor on first space of the new first line, and press <CTL><F5> to dump. The block will overwrite any text that is under it, so use care. <F6> to set the margins (1, 2, 10, 0, etc.), cursor on the first space of the line. <F7> to insert a blank line at cursor, cursor must be on first space of the line. <F8> deformats a line. Removes all formatting that has been placed in the line by the subfunctions of <F2>. The line can then be reformated as you wish. The cursor must be on first space of the line. <CTL><F8> may be used to deformat the entire file in memory. Cursor on the first space of file. <F9> get a directory listing, this version supports full pathnames, wildcards and hard disk. <F10>pulls down a function menu. Most PAGEONE functions can be done by using this menu. SUBFUNCTIONS OF <F2>: <C> centers the line you are currently working on. <J> justify the current line, out to the margins on both ends. <L> or <enter> sets current line left flush on margin, results in what is called "ragged right" composition. <R> sets current line flush on right margin, results in "ragged left" composition. page 3 USES OF OTHER KEYS: Since PAGEONE is always in the overtype mode, character keys will replace the character or space under the cursor. The unshifted arrow keys will move the cursor to any place you desire on the screen. The <control><right arrow> keys will move the cursor to the beginning of the next line. The <enter> key is used to terminate input only in the margin setting, file handling, color monitor, printer ready routines and end of line markers. All other entries are immediate. The <esc> key when pressed from within the edit screens will give you a help screen that lists the functions available. The editing keys on your keyboard all work within PAGEONE. Thus you will find that <Tab> will move you over to the next even 10 spaces, <Backspace> will move you back one space and erase, <Delete> will remove the character under the cursor, <Pgdn> will move you to the next video screen unless you are on the last one and <Pgup> will move you to the previous video screen unless you are on the first one. <Insert> will put you into the insert mode and all input from the keyboard will be placed to the left of the cursor. <Control><Pgup> will move you to the first character of your document file and <Control><Pgdn> will move you to the last character in the file. <home> will move you to the first space in the line, <end> will move the cursor to the first space past the last character in the line. 1.3--COLOR OPTIONS When you activate PAGEONE, you will first be asked if you have a color monitor on. If you do you will then be allowed to choose the colors for the main background, the text on this background, the background of the two status lines on the bottom of the screen, the text on them and the color of the messages that appear in the message line and the border color. If you do not want to change the colors they will default to preset values. If you do not have a color monitor on, answer "N" to the first question and the system will default to the black and white mode. Then the main menu will come up with your choices. The following 7 sections explain each of the 7 menu options in detail. 1.4--MENU OPTION 1, CREATING A NEW DOCUMENT Choosing this option will clear all variables and file memory and set you up to begin the creation of a new file. You will go to the edit screen and have all options at your command. Margins are initially set to 0 left and 0 right and can be changed on any line. It is important to leave the amount of blank lines you wish to have on top and bottom of the file. If you wish to have three blank line at the top of the page and three blank lines at the bottom of the page, page 4 start your text on line 4 and end it on line 63. You will note that on the left side of the status line (24) at the bottom of the screen, there are counters for line, character and screen. Let these be your guide. When you exit the edit screens you will have the option to save your file. 1.5--MENU OPTION 2, EDITING AN EXISTING DOCUMENT Upon choosing this option the screen will clear and you will be asked to enter a filespec for the file you want to edit. Filespecs follow MSDOS conventions, so if you are unfamiliar with them, read the book! If the file you ask for is not available or you enter the spec wrong, you will be prompted to correct it. All functions are active in this option, the margins are set to 0 initially. It is important to remember when editing a file, to use the same margin setting used originally if you wish to have a uniform appearance should you reformat a line. When you exit the edit screen you will have the option to save your file under a new name or <enter> to save back to the same file. 1.6--OPTION 3, PRINTING A DOCUMENT DIRECTLY FROM DISK This option will allow you to print out a file directly from disk without disturbing the file you are currently working on in memory. The screen will clear and you will be asked for the filespec that you wish to print. The restrictions noted in section 1.5 also apply here. It is very important that the printer be turned on and actively on line for this option to work properly. Set the printer on the actual first line of the page. PAGEONE files are stored in formatted form on the disk, so they will print out well using this option. When printing is finished, you will be able to go back to the work file. *Note: in this PAGEONE version you have the option of choosing to print more than one copy of a document in either direct disk or memory print mode. The large files created by the PRINFILE utility program in this version may be printed by option 3, but cannot be edited by PAGEONE at this time. If you have sufficient memory available, PRINFILE or STYLES can be called and used from the DOS SHELL feature of the main menu. 1.7--OPTION 4, PRINTING A DOCUMENT FROM MEMORY This is the printing method that you will probably use most often, as it is quicker, easier and will allow printing over and over with changes in copy. When you choose this option, the screen will clear and a message will appear requesting that you ready the printer for use. Set the printer on the first line of the page. Upon termination of printing, you will be returned to main menu. page 5 1.8--OPTION 5, RE-EDITING A DOCUMENT IN MEMORY This option is very useful should you change your mind, or wish to create form letters or other documents with changes to each between printings. Upon choosing this option you will be placed at the start of the current memory file. All functions are active in this option and the file can be saved upon exit if desired. If there is no file resident in memory this option will have the same effect as choosing option 1 on the main menu except that no space blocks will be shown on the screen. If you prefer working without them you may enter edit in this way. 1.9--OPTION 6, DISK DIRECTORY LISTING Option 6 on the main menu will give you a directory listing of the directory you choose. Press <enter> for the current directory. Pressing <ESC> will return you to the main menu. This option supports full pathnames and wildcards. 2.0--OPTION 7, EXITING PAGEONE This option is the proper way to exit PAGEONE. You will be returned to DOS ready. 2.0a--OPTION 0, DOS SHELL Although it does not show on the main menu (to keep accidents from happening), you may enter a DOS SHELL feature of PAGEONE by pressing <0> (zero). Once in the shell, you may execute any DOS command or run any program that you have sufficient memory for. You may find that if your machine has 128K of memory, that you may have some problems with this feature. The best way to find out is by experimentation. There are two error messages, FILE NOT FOUND and INSUFFICIENT MEMORY FOR THIS OPERATION. Remember that if you are using a DOS version of less than 3.x, you must either have path commands entered or change the directory to where the command or program is located prior to running it. To exit this feature, enter <Q> on the command line. You will be returned to the main menu. Both PRINFILE and STYLES can be called from this function. 2.1--SPECIAL PRINTER NOTES PAGEONE is written so that almost any printer that has 80 columns will work with it. It should even work well with serial printers as long as you use the proper configeration. Another important point to remember is that the printer should be set to the first blank line on the page, not the first print line. If you are using perforated printing paper, this means set the printer where it would print on the first line after the perforation. If you are printing on single sheets it may not be possible to do this. In this case as an alternative, start creating your print file on the actual first line of the file, leaving the amount of blank lines you want (for top and bottom both) at the end of the file. Then set your printer to start printing on the first PRINT line and you will come out right. page 6 Special printer commands can be embedded in PAGEONE documents. The following restrictions apply. Printer commands can only be placed in blank lines of the document or in the left margins if there is room. Up to four of these command sequences can be placed in a line. This means that printer commands cannot be placed in full width lines (79 characters). The printer command must be started on the first space of the line and have the following form: .wwxxyyzz. Thus the command must start with a period (.) followed by eight digits then an ending period (.). Most printer commands (you will find them listed in your printer book) take the form of <esc> (27) followed by another two digit code. The command to disable the linefeed on a DWII printer is thus 2721. If the function you desire has only one code, then the rest of the digits must be 0. If the code desired is a single digit then it must be preceded by a 0. Thus a printer command of 8 would be written as .08000000. As you can see the left margin must be at least 10 for insertion of printer commands. These commands, if inserted in the margins, must be placed after the line is formatted. 2.2--LINE FORMAT NOTES Please note that you start typing all lines at the left side of the screen. Lines are formatted using the subfunctions: <J> justifies lines by adding spaces between words so that the line is evenly spaced and out to the margin on both ends. The formula used for this is very fast and efficient. It will even spread two characters to opposite sides of the page as long as you have one space between them. Do not leave any trailing spaces on lines you intend to justify. Due to word length and column width constraints, however, it is recommended that if you use narrow columns, that you occasionally hyphenate a word to make for a more natural appearance of the printed copy. Otherwise you may find that if you use narrow columns and long words, you may have two words on a line with a lot of space between them. The subfunction <C> will center a line on the page. This works best if you be sure to have an odd number of characters in your line. The counter will make this very easy to do. Do not use leading or trailing blanks if you wish your line to center well. The subfunctions <L> (or <enter>) and <R> will set the line either to the (L)eft or (R)ight margin of the line. No justification will be done, the line will be moved as is. This can sometimes be used to create some dramatic effects. 2.3--FILE SPECIFICATIONS USED BY PAGEONE PAGEONE uses the normal MS-DOS file specification conventions as put forth in the manual from Microsoft. This book is required reading for any file operations and if you do not have a copy by all means purchase one. The file specifications used are as follows: D:AAAAAAAA.BBB page 7 Where A indicates an up to 8 character file name, must begin with a letter, numbers are allowed after the first character. B indicates an up to 3 character extension such as .TXT for text. Must be preceded by a period (.). D indicates a drive from A to D and must be followed by a colon (:). All items in the specification with the exception of A are optional, but make for greater clarity when used. Full pathnames are supported under this system. The filename 'Q' without an extension must not be used in PAGEONE. 2.3a--PULL DOWN FUNCTION MENU Pressing <F10> pulls down a function menu that lists most of the functions of PAGEONE. To use it, use the arrow keys to place the highlighted bar over the desired function and press <enter>. To exit the menu without executing a function, press <esc>. Note that although you can set the block markers from this menu, the block copy function must be done by the <CTL><F5> key combination. 2.4--CREATING CHARACTER STRING HORIZONTALLY You can dress up your documents or forms by using this feature of PAGEONE. By pressing <F4> you go into the character string mode. You may then enter any character from the keyboard followed by <enter> and presto you have a line of them margin to margin. You must be on the first space of the line to use this function. 2.5--DELETING A LINE By pressing <F1>, you will delete a line that is indicated by the cursor position. The entire file will be moved up one line, opening a blank line at the end of the file. You must be on the first space of the line to use this function. 2.6--INSERTING A BLANK LINE By pressing <F7>, you will insert a blank line in the file as indicated by the cursor position. The entire file will be moved down one line. If you have any copy on the last line of the file (66), it will be lost. You must have the cursor on the first space of the line for this function to work. 2.7--INSERTING CHARACTERS WITHIN THE LINE By pressing the <insert> key, you will be placed into insert mode. Anything then typed will be inserted to the immediate left of the cursor. You exit this mode by pressing <esc>. This function will work anywhere within the line, limited only by the margin settings. For best results, deformat using <F8> and then insert, the line may then be reformatted to your liking. 2.8--TO DELETE THE CHARACTER UNDER THE CURSOR By pressing the <delete> key, you will delete the character under the cursor. The line will move over to fill the space. This function works anywhere within the line. page 8 2.8a--DEFORMATTING, LINE OR ENTIRE FILE By placing the cursor on the first space of a line and then pressing <F8>, you will remove all formatting from the line. The margins, and all centering, flushing or justification will be removed and the line placed on the left side of the screen. You may then edit and reformat the line as you choose. By pressing <CTL><F8> the formatting will be removed from the entire file in memory. You must be on the first space of the file for this function to work. No text is lost, only margins and extra spaces and the graphics blocks are removed. If you do not like working with the graphic space blocks, this is a good way to get rid of them---BEFORE FORMATTING ANY TEXT! 2.9--LOADING AND DUMPING THE CUT AND PASTE BUFFER One of the most useful functions of the PAGEONE system is the cut & paste buffer. This buffer holds up to 66 lines. It is important that you use function <F7> to create blank lines where you want to "paste" or they will overwrite the lines where you place them. To use this feature, put the cursor on the first space of the first line you want to copy, press <F5>. This marks the start as the line indicated by the cursor. Then move the cursor to the first space of the line past the end of the block you want to copy. Pressing <F5> again marks the end as the location indicated by the cursor. The buffer is then loaded and ready for use. Move the cursor to the first space of the new first line and press <CTL><F5> to copy the block. The lines moved have not been erased, they still will exist at the original location. You may remove them with <F1> if desired. The popular name for this loading and dumping action is "cut" for load and "paste" for dump. Text can be copied to another file using this function, as long as you do not exit to the system, leaving PAGEONE, in between files. 3.0--SETTING THE MARGINS Pressing <F6> will allow you to set the margins. You must be on the first space of a line for this function to work. These margins only affect the lines entered after they are set. Previously set lines retain the margin they were set with. This gives you great flexibility to create varying effects as theoretically each line in the file could have a different margin setting. On invoking this function, line 23 on the screen will clear and question you as to the spaces you wish in each margin. Numbers entered must not be larger than the total spaces available in a line. Thus margins of 40 left and 40 right would not be accepted as they total more than the 79 maximum spaces available in a line. You will be asked to input the left margin first, then the right margin. After you have entered both margins, you will be asked if they are correct, if not you will be given the opportunity to correct them. When you are finished and sure that they are correct, answer "Y" to the last question and you will see the new maximum line length appear at the right end of line 23. Setting the margins can be done on any line. page 9 3.1--MOVING THROUGH THE VIDEO SCREENS As noted earlier, as you are entering text and come to the end of a video screen, you will automatically be placed at the start of the next screen. Counters located on the left side of line 24 give you a constant readout of line number, character within-the-line number and screen number. Should you wish to move back or forward in the file the following functions can be invoked by pressing the indicated key: <pgdn> will move you forward one video screen unless you are on the last one, <pgup> will move you back one video screen unless you are on the first one, <control><pgup> will take you back to the very beginning of the file, with the cursor placed on the first space of the file, <control><pgdn> will place the cursor on the last character of the file. 3.2--OTHER FUNCTIONS AND KEYS The arrow keys will move the cursor anywhere on the screen. The <control> <right arrow> key will move the cursor to the first space on the next line. PAGEONE is always in the overtype mode, so any character or space key will replace what is under the cursor. <F10> use of this function key pulls down a menu of the functions available. <F9> will give a listing of the current directory from within edit. This version supports full pathnames and wildcards. 3.3--PLACING AND USING THE END OF LINE (EOL) MARKERS End of line markers (EOL) are placed by pressing <F2> or <enter>. This is necessary for formatting your lines. Your line for formatting must be equal to or less than the line length shown on the right side of line 23. You will then be shown the subfunction list on line 23. You may center, justify, right flush or left flush your line at this time. The line will be formatted according to your choice at this point and the margins added to each end. 3.4--SAVING FILES IN PAGEONE Pressing <F3> will allow you to exit the edit screens. You may then save your file under the name you choose. Merely answer "Y" to the question about saving file as you exit; if you answer "N" you will be returned to the main menu. If you have been editing an old file, the file name will be listed as the current file; you can save it back to the same disk file by merely pressing <enter> for the file name. Otherwise, enter a new file name following the specifications in section 2.2, followed by <enter> to save the file at the prompt. If the file exists you will be asked if you wish to overwrite it. It is recommended that you save your file often to keep from losing information to a power outage or some other reason. It is much easier to save the file in this simple way than it is to recreate the information again. When the file save is done you will be returned to the main menu. You can then print or page 10 re-edit the file as it still will be in memory at this time. The file will remain in memory until the system is reset or you choose option (1) on the main menu to create a new file. 3.5--TYPEWRITER MODE OF PAGEONE In addition to all the formatting features thus far listed, PAGEONE can be operated in the typewriter mode for "quick and dirty" notes, letters, etc. Simply choose option (1) on the main menu, then type into it just as you would on a typewriter. Just press <enter> twice at the end of each line and keep typing. When you are finished, this file can be printed or saved as any other, the only difference being that the composition will be all "ragged right". 3.6--SKELETON FILES WITH PAGEONE A very useful thing you can do with PAGEONE is the creation of skeleton files. Suppose you are using PAGEONE to write business letters. Just set up a new file and create your own letterhead using the formatting and character string features, then save this file to disk with a distinctive name. Then whenever you want to write a letter, choose to edit an old file and call in your letterhead. You may then fill the file with the letter, below the letterhead previously created, and print it out. This saves a lot of keystrokes. 3.7--CHAINING FILES FOR PRINTING WITH PAGEONE Using the program PRINFILE that is included on your disk, you may create a print queue of up to 20 files for printing at the same time. It can also be used to make up to 99 copies of one file. Up to 20 files can also be combined into one large file. These files can be printed by PAGEONE, but not edited. 3.8--A SAMPLE SESSION WITH PAGEONE As a sample session with PAGEONE, we recommend the following: Invoke PAGEONE by typing PAGEONE at the DOS ready after loading any resident programs needed by your system. Choose option (2) on the main menu, to edit an old file. For file specification, enter DEMO.TXT. When the file has loaded, page through it and examine it to see both how some of the functions work and how they look on the screen. Exit the edit mode and do a memory print of the file. Then re-edit the file using (5) on the main menu and compare the screen file with the printed file. When you have done all of this, then use the file in memory to try out the various functions of PAGEONE. In this way you can gain firsthand knowledge of the program. 3.9--KNOWN INCOMPATIBILITIES WITH PAGEONE At this time there are no known incompatibilities with PAGEONE, and the files produced are compatible with most other word processors. page 11 4.0--TRADEMARK RECOGNITION TANDY and RADIO SHACK are trademarks and products of the Tandy Corp.

PRINTSTYLES INSTRUCTIONS This documentations is intended to help with the use of PRINTSTYLES program. First a few notes for those who intend to use this with Word Star or other word processor other than PAGEONE. If you are going to use Word Star then you must first run Word Star then take the option Run Program. When you select this option you will be asked for a DOS command or program name, at this point enter STYLES and press enter and you should be presented with a menu of selections. Now that we are at the menu let me explain what each one does. Menu option number one will cause your printer to print condensed letters. To use option number two you must first set the condensed mode off before it will work. The same applies if you use the enlarged print mode, you must first set the enlarged mode off before set condensed mode on. I sincerly hope you find this program usefull and decide to buy the expanded version 1.01 which will allow much more flexability.
