ROCKFORD! Version 2.5 INTRODUCTION Need a business card? Rockford!'s your program. Using Rockford! with Microsoft Windows 3.x, you can design professional-looking business cards in just a few minutes. It's far easier to design your cards in Rockford! than by following the traditional path of going to your printer and trying to pick out a business card design from a book. If you hired a graphic designer to create a business card, you'd spend much more than you did for this program, and the results might not be as good. Using Rockford!, you have complete control over the entire design process. Since you see your card on the screen, as it will appear when printed, you can make as many changes as you like, as often as you like. PROFESSIONAL USERS If you're a graphic design professional, or the owner of a small print shop, Rockford!'s your answer too. Instead of your customers trying to figure out what they want their cards to look like by looking in your book, they can see the design on paper--before you send it to the printer. The result is far fewer costly returns. You have a happy customer and cash in your pocket. There's even more. Using Rockford!, you can print sheets of your customer's designs, then copy them onto card stock. Just cut the cards and you can offer 1-hour business card service. Rockford! doesn't take the place of a true print shop, but being able to offer your clients a quick set of 100 cards while they wait can mean the difference between a sale and a walk-out. OTHER USES FOR ROCKFORD! Rockford! isn't limited just to business cards. Clubs can use Rockford! to produce membership cards. Used with readily-available pin-back card holders, Rockford! can produce ID cards. Many users also use Rockford! to create humorous or gag cards. Use your imagination. See the Feature section information about Rockford! Professional, which includes special features just for professional use. ROCKFORD!'S FEATURES You can create just about any style of card with Rockford! Here's a list of some of the features of the program: WYSIWYG Design Screen Horizontal and Vertical Card Designs Use any Font Available in Windows Line, Box, and Circle Drawing Bold, Italic, Bold-Italic, and Reversed type. Four Border Types Adjustable Margins & Border Offsets Text Alignment Tools Split Lines of Type Automatic Bulleted Lists Insert Clip Art on Card Preview Clip Art Before Loading Scale and Position Pictures to .01" Accuracy Insert Character Formats inside Lines Print Card Layouts, with 200%-sized camera-ready copy Print Sheets of Ready-to-cut Cards (9 or 10 cards per sheet) Print Four-up Sets of Camera-Ready Cards (preferred by some printers) NEW! Print Cards on Pre-cut card stock!!! Save Completed Cards to Disk. Easy-to-use Interface Online Help EXTRA FEATURES IN ROCKFORD! PROFESSIONAL Printed Manual Customize Printout Headings with Your Business Name Customer Approval Area on Printouts Large Clip Art Library Extra PostScript Type 1 Fonts SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS Rockford! requires an 80286 or 80386 computer or better, with at least 2 MB of RAM. You also need Microsoft Windows 3.x, or a later version, plus a hard disk and mouse. For printing, any Hewlett-Packard LaserJet or compatible printer with at least 2.5 MB of memory is your best choice. For best results, a font-scaling program, such as Adobe Type Manager, is strongly suggested. Rockford! does not support the SuperPrint font scaling software. Rockford! does support PostScript devices. However, clip art images will not print on these printers in most cases. If you use a PostScript printer, you must have matching screen fonts for your PostScript fonts. If you use Adobe Type Manager, your system must be set up properly to download fonts as needed. IMPORTANT PRINTER NOTES: You'll get best results with Hewlett-Packard LaserJet printers, using TrueType or Adobe Type Manager fonts. However, other printers may work with Rockford! PostScript printers can print Rockford!'s cards, but cannot print clip art images. HP DeskJet users can use Rockford!, but may have to use the Shift commands in the Layout menu to shift the layout up about .25" on the page to prevent the bottom row of cards from running over to the next page. See the information below. DOT-MATRIX PRINTERS Dot-matrix printers are not directly supported by Rockford! Generally, clip art images will not print at all, or may print in the wrong location. However, there is a solution. An addon product, Laser Twin from Metro Software, can emulate Hewlett-Packard LaserJet output on popular dot-matrix printers. To use this program, you select the Hewlett-Packard LaserJet Series II printer driver in Windows, printing to a file instead of directly to the printer. (See your Windows manual for instructions on how to do this.) Then, from DOS, you install Laser Twin and copy the file to the printer. (See the Laser Twin manual for instructions on how to do this.) Your output will work just fine, and even clip art images will print correctly. For information or to order Laser Twin, contact: Metro Software 1870 W. Prince Road Suite 70 Tucson, AZ 85705 602-292-0313 800-621-1137 Laser Twin sells for about $100 and will work with other programs as well. LANGUAGE NOTES Rockford! was written in Microsoft Visual Basic 1.0. To use it, as with any Visual Basic program, the file VBRUN100.DLL, included on your distribution disk, is required. If you downloaded this program from a BBS, you should be able to find the file on that BBS. You can also download it as VBRUN100.ZIP on the OsoSoft BBS at (805) 528-3753. PROGRAM LIMITATIONS Due to a documented bug in Visual Basic, do not drop to DOS while Rockford! is minimized. Exit Rockford! before dropping to DOS or running DOS programs in Windows! LICENSE INFORMATION RockFord! is a shareware program. You may use it for 30 days to decide whether or not you like the program.

NOTE TO SHAREWARE DISTRIBUTORS You may distribute ONLY the current shareware version of Rockford! or any other OsoSoft product in your catalog or on your BBS. To obtain the latest version of the program, download it from the OsoSoft BBS. If you publish a catalog of shareware software, you must mail a copy of each catalog containing OsoSoft programs to OsoSoft, 1472 Sixth Street, Los Osos, CA, 93402. You also must prominently display an explanation of the shareware concept and the need for registration fees in all catalogs or on any BBS used to distribute an OsoSoft program. If you distribute shareware software on a CD-ROM disk, you MUST contact George Campbell, president of OsoSoft, before including any OsoSoft program on such a disk. Finally, you may not charge a fee larger than $6.00 to distribute the shareware version of any OsoSoft program. INSTALLATION If you have manually installed other Windows software, you can probably skip this section, although it's a good idea to read it in any case. To install Rockford!, first create a directory especially for the program. If you need help with the DOS MKDIR (MD) command, see your DOS manual. Now, copy all the files included with Rockford! into your new directory. You can use the DOS command line, the Windows File Manager, or another Windows shell program to do this. Finally, copy the VBRUN100.DLL file on your distribution diskette into your Windows home directory. Now, start up the Windows Program Manager, if it's not already on the screen. If you use another program shell, such as the Norton Desktop Manager, you'll need to consult that program's instructions on manually installing a new program. Otherwise, with Program Manager, follow the instructions below: 1. Click once on the program group where you want the Rockford! icon to appear. 2. Click the Program Manager's File menu command. 3. Click the New command. 4. Click OK in the next dialog box to create a new program item. 5. Type Rockford!, then press the <Tab> key. 6. Type the Path to your Rockford! directory, then type ROCKFORD.EXE. 7. If you're using Windows 3.1, you also should enter the path to the Rockford directory in the "Working Directory" field. Your entry should look like this (with your own path information): C:\ROCKFORD\ROCKFORD.EXE NOTE: On a few laptops and desktop systems, Rockford may cause keyboard problems in it's default installation. If this occurs, change the line above by adding NF to the end of the line. Now your line will look like this: C:\ROCKFORD\ROCKFORD.EXE NF See the section below on the Flashing Scroll Lock LED for more information. 7. Check your information, then click OK. 8. The Rockford! icon will appear in the program group box you selected. You may have to use the scroll bars to find it, but you can then drag the icon to a new location. 9. Remember: in order to save your new Program Manager screen, you must check the Save Changes box when you exit Windows after loading Rockford! This completes the installation of Rockford! on your computer and into Windows. STARTING ROCKFORD! To run Rockford!, start Windows, then double click on the Rockford! icon. That's all there is to it. However, if you use another program shell in Windows, you may have to use a different technique to start the program. Consult your shell program's manual for detailed information. THE ROCKFORD! INTERFACE When you start Rockford! for the first time, there will be a delay while the program creates its font list and prepares the rest of the program. A notice will appear on your screen as the program loads. If you have a large font library, this may take up to a minute. From then on, Rockford! will load the font list from a file it creates. If you've added or deleted fonts, you'll be notified when Rockford! starts and have an opportunity to rebuild the font list. It's best to do so, since you'll want your list to be accurate. Next, you'll see the Rockford! screen, which is maximized to take up the entire Windows screen. Unlike many other Windows programs, Rockford! uses command buttons and drop-down list boxes to perform most functions. The commands you need to create card designs are always right on the screen, grouped according to function. Tradition Windows menus duplicate most button functions, and offer some less-used commands. FLASHING SCROLL LOCK LED Due to a missing feature in Visual Basic, I was forced to flash your Scroll Lock LED on and off rapidly. On some systems, or with some other software running, this may cause difficulty with text editing. If this happens, simply add the parameter NF to the command line entry in the Program Manager's Properties dialog box. Put a space between .EXE and NF Example: If your NumLock LED flashes, press the <NumLock> key to stop the flashing. C:\ROCKFORD\ROCKFORD.EXE NF This will solve the problem, but you'll have to press the Shift key to force Rockford! to update the line number when you move the cursor to a new line with the mouse. EDITING AND DISPLAY BOXES You'll see two windows on the screen. At the top is the text-editing box. Here, you'll enter and edit all the text to be included on your card. Just below it is another box, where a WYSIWYG display of your card appears. You can't edit directly in this WYSIWYG box. Editing Text in Rockford! Rockford!'s editing box works much like your Windows word processing program. You can simply type your text in the box. To position the cursor in your text, either use the cursor keys or click the mouse cursor where you want to type. If you select text by dragging with the mouse, new text you type replaces the selected text. Normally, to save time, Rockford! updates the WYSIWYG display when you change formatting in any way or when you press the <Enter> key when typing text. If you want continuous updates, click the File menu and click on the Auto Updating Enabled command. This will place a check-mark next to the command and Rockford! will update the WYSISYG display whenever you move to a new text line. Try it both ways. As you type, the font, size, alignment, and other formatting options on the current line carry over to the next line of type when you press <Enter>. You are limited to 20 lines of text in Rockford! LEFT SIDE BUTTONS On the far left of your screen is a vertical row of buttons, in three groups. These buttons handle basic file and printing operations. The Text Group This group has just two buttons: [Edit] -- This button returns the cursor to the text editing box. Since Rockford! always returns control to this box, you'll rarely, if ever have to click this button. [Exit] -- Click this button to leave Rockford! You'll be asked to confirm this choice. The Card Group Several buttons make up this group, which deals with files and your card design as a whole. [Update] -- This button updates the WYSIWYG display. To prevent excessive delays, some commands used in Rockford! do not automatically update this display. Any time you want to see an updated version of your card, just click this button. Note: you can also update your display by moving the cursor to a new line of text in the editing box, or by clicking anywhere in the WYSIWYG display. [Clear] -- This button clears your current card from the screen and from memory. You'll be asked to confirm this command. [New] -- This button clears your current card and prepares Rockford! for an entirely new card, with no filename attached. [Load] -- The Load command lets you retrieve an existing card design from your hard disk. You'll see a typical Windows file opening dialog box, listing the files available. Normally, your card designs will have the file extension .CAR, unless you specify a different extension. [Save] -- Saves the current card with the current filename. No prompting takes place, and the design on the screen at the time of the save overwrites any previous data. If no filename has been assigned to the current card, the Save As dialog box will appear. [Save As] -- Allows you to assign a new name for a card design. If you're creating several variations of the same card, be sure to use this command to prevent overwriting a previous design. If you enter a filename without an extension, Rockford! will add the .CAR extension. It's best to stick to the default extension to avoid making changes in the dialog box when you load designs. [Print] -- This button drops the file menu down, highlighting one of the available printing options. Click the mouse on the one you want to use. [AddPic] --This button opens a dialog box for loading graphical images. You'll see a list of files in the BMP (Bitmap) format, including clip art files shipped with your copy of Rockford!. Rockford! can only use images in Windows BMP format. While Rockford! will display 256-color or 256-gray scale images, it will reduce those images to 16 colors or grays. Your printout will be at the 16 color or gray level. To preview clip art images, click on a clip art file in the filename box. If you click just once, you'll see a preview of the image in the size it will appear on your card. If it's too small or too large, you can scale it later from within Rockford!. If you click on an invalid file, Rockford! will simply ignore your selection. By clicking on additional clip art filenames, you can preview all the graphics you have available. To load an image onto your card, double click on the file name you want to load, or click OK to load the current image. If you click Cancel, no image will load. The Layout Group [Horiz] -- This button selects the Horizontal card layout. This is the default, and appears when you start Rockford! You won't need to press this button unless you've changed to the vertical format. If a card already exists on the screen, you'll be asked whether you want to clear the design. [Vert] -- This button switches to a Vertical layout. Notice that you'll see less of the text editing box in this format. Use the scroll bars to view more of your text. This command clears the card, after allowing you to confirm or deny. [Margins] -- This button lets you set customized margins for your card. These margins affect only the top and sides, and do not alter the position of any borders. The default is .1 inch. If an offset has been added with the next button, that offset is added to the margin automatically. [Offset] -- This button controls the spacing between the card edge and the borders drawn with the Border Type list box. The default is 0, and this command has no effect if the card design has no border. RIGHT SIDE COMMANDS On the right side of the editing and WYSIWYG screens are three other groups of commands. These deal with text formatting and graphics. Some of these are buttons, while others present options in list boxes for easy selection. Starting from the top: Text Attributes (Insert Within Line) These buttons allow you to insert boldfacing, italics, etc. within a line of type on your card. When you click one of these buttons a code, such as <Bold>, is inserted in your text, telling Rockford! to change the attributes for all characters following the code. To remove such a code, simply use normal editing tools to delete it in the text editing box. HINT: You'll get the best results if you use these inserted commands sparingly. If you want to format an entire line, use the commands in the next group of commands. NOTE: You cannot place two formatting codes next to each other. At least one character or space must separate formatting codes. For example, to add boldfacing AND italics, insert a bold code before a space, then an italic code just before the word to be italicized. [Normal] -- This inserted <Norm> code shuts off all other codes. For example, to boldface a single word, insert a <Bold> code immediately before the word, then a <Norm> code immediately following the word. [Bold] -- Inserts <Bold> in your text. Any font may be boldfaced. [Ital] -- Inserts <Ital>. [Underline] -- Inserts <Under>. [Subscript] -- Inserts <Subs>. [Superscript] -- Inserts <Supr> NOTE: [Superscript] and [Subscript] allow you to position text above or below the current line. Text size is reduced to 66% of the original text. This will affect line spacing on your card. NOTE: You cannot use any of the above buttons on lines which have the Split at Tilde attribute, (See below). If you try, you'll see a message box telling you this. [Bullet] -- This button inserts a standard bullet character at the current cursor position in the text editing box. Use it to create bulleted lists on your card. You can insert bullets anywhere in your text. Text Attributes (Whole Line) Unlike the previous set of commands, these commands affect an entire line, and offer a great deal of control over your formatting. You should use these commands whenever possible, rather than the inserted commands. [Line] -- Displays the current line number, as determined by the position of your cursor in the text editing box. [Dupe Previous] -- This button allows you to repeat the formatting of the line above the current line. This is useful whenever you want duplicate formats on several lines. Just format the first line to contain that format, then move to the next line and click this button. All line attributes will be duplicated. [Font] -- This drop-down list box displays the current font, and allows you to change a line to another font. Click on the arrow to drop down the font selection list. Scroll through the list, then click on your font selection. You'll see a sample of your selected font in a box just below this list box. [Size] -- Displays the current size for the font used on the current line. Click the arrow to drop down a list of available font sizes for the line. Sizes range from 4 to 36 points, in one-point intervals for the smaller fonts. If you want a font size (whole numbers only) not shown on the chart, just enter the number in the size display area and press <Enter>. HINT: Changing the font size of a blank line affects line spacing. Use this trick to adjust line spacing in 1-point intervals. [Border] -- Another list box, this one offers five options for card borders, ranging from none, to single, double, bold, and thin/thick double lines. The current selection shows in the display area. To change, click the down arrow. [Align] -- This control affects the alignment of the selected line. The current setting shows in the display area. To change, click the arrow, then select your option. You can choose, left or right aligned, centered, or split lines. NOTE: For split lines, you need to insert a tilde (~) in the text box where you want the line to split. Rockford! will automatically separate the two halves of the line. You cannot insert internal formatting codes in split lines. Normally, lines are split with the left half being aligned with the left margin and the right half aligned with the right margin. By inserting spaces before or after the text, you can create custom alignments, such as blocks of text centered on both sides. Experiment to create a card that looks right to you. [Style] -- Four check boxes control text attributes for the entire line. The Normal box, when checked, overrides all the others. You may, however, check as many of the others as you wish, creating even Underlined Bold Italic text. NOTE: You can turn off any of these attributes within a line, by using one of the inserted buttons described above. [Rev.] Makes text on the line reversed, with white letters on a black background. You can increase the width of the black section by adding spaces before and after the text. The Graphics Objects Group This group controls line drawing, plus positioning and scaling of both line drawing objects and inserted clip art images. [Object] -- This drop-down list box allows you to select an individual object for editing. As a default, the word PIC shows in the display area, identifying a clip art image as the current object. If you do line drawings, each line, box, or circle gets an object number, which appears on the WYSIWYG screen with the object. To manipulate an object, click the down arrow, then select the object of your choice. You may create up to 12 line-drawing objects. [Width] -- This box controls the width of line drawing elements. Widths range from 1 to 24 pixels on the screen, which translates roughly to point measurements on the printer. If you change the current setting, it will affect the current object, if present, or the next object you draw. [Draw] -- This check box enables line drawing. Click it before attempting to create a line. Rockford! will automatically select the next available object number. [Line], [Box], [Circle] -- These options, only one of which can be highlighted, determine the type of object you want to draw. Draw [Black] or [White] Options -- These options control the color of the object you are going to draw, or change the color of an existing object. Black is the default color. DRAWING AN OBJECT To draw an object in the WYSIWYG screen, first select the type of object ([Line], [Box],[Circle]), then set the width for the lines used to draw the object. Next click on the [Draw] checkbox. Move the mouse pointer inside the WYSIWYG display and depress the left mouse button at the starting point of a line, the upper left corner of a box, or the center of a circle. While holding the button down, drag the mouse pointer to a new location. A rubber-band image of your object will appear as you draw. Draw slowly for best results. When the object is approximately the right size, release the left mouse button to place your object on the screen. A number will appear next to the object to identify it. Don't worry if size or positioning aren't exactly correct. You can move or size any object later. NOTE: Rockford! does not check to make sure your object is within the boundaries of the card. That's your responsibility. Objects extending past the card's edges WILL print outside the card's boundaries. [Move], [Size] Options -- These two options determine whether the scroll bars (see below) move or size the current object. [Scroll Bars] -- Both horizontal and vertical scroll bars are available to control positioning of graphical elements. Depending on which of the option buttons above has the highlight, you can manipulate objects in .01 inch increments. MOVING AN OBJECT OR CLIP ART IMAGE Start by selecting the object in the [Object] list box. Next, click on the [Move] option button. To move the object in .01" increments, click on the [Up], [Down], [Left], or [Right] arrows on the appropriate scroll bar. To move the object in .1" increments, click the scroll bar regions between the arrows and the position button on the scroll bar. To move the object in larger increments, click and drag the position button on either scroll bar. Dragging a Clip Art Image You can also move a clip art image by dragging it around the screen with the mouse. To do this, click the left mouse button somewhere near the center of the image. Then, with the mouse button held down, drag the image to a new location. This technique is most useful for large movements, and is less precise than moving an image with the scroll bars. What works best is to position the image roughly with the mouse, then use the scroll bars for precise positioning. SCALING A LINE DRAWING OBJECT First, select the object you want to resize, then click the [Size] option button. Then, use the scroll bars, as described above to alter the size of the object. The increments are the same as when you move an object. SCALING A CLIP ART IMAGE First, select the PIC object in the [Object] list box. Click the [Size] option button. Use the scroll bars with the same increments as described above to change the size of your image. The horizontal bar increases or decreases the horizontal dimension. The vertical bar alters the vertical dimensions. The upper left corner of the image remains fixed. Once the image is the size you want, you can re-position it with the [Move] option. NOTE: For true proportional scaling of images, use the Graphics Scaling command on the main menu to display the scaling submenu. You'll find a complete description of this submenu in the section of this manual on Menu Commands. [Erase Selected] -- This button erases the current image, as identified in the [Object] list box. This erasure is temporary. NOTE: If you want to change to a new clip art image, you must first delete the current one, as described above. [Restore] -- This button restores objects deleted with the [Erase Selected] button. Objects remain in memory unless removed by the [Clear] button, the [Draw] command is given, or until a new file is loaded. [Erase All] -- This button removes all graphical elements from the screen. As with the erase selected button, the image remains in memory, and can be restored with the Restore button. MENU COMMANDS Some, but not all button and list functions are duplicated in traditional Windows menus. Other functions, less-often used, are offered only in menus. For duplicated instructions, see the information in the section above for the equivalent button command. Here's a rundown: FILE MENU New Card Design -- Clears the current card and set up for a new design. Open Card File -- Open an existing .CAR card design file. Save Current Card -- Saves the current card with the current filename. Save Current Card As... -- Allows you to save the current design under a different filename. Insert Graphic File -- Lets you select a clip art image for insertion in your design. Print Card Layout -- This command, whether selected here, or after pressing the Print button, prints your design in it's actual size, and as a double-sized image, with crop marks. The double sized image allows the printer to increase the resolution of your design to 600 dots per inch, which is perfectly adequate for business card printing, especially when using the thermographic printing process. In Rockford! Professional, you may specify the heading text which prints at the top of the layout sheet. This lets you customize your layouts with an advertising message. This heading prints in the default font. You can change this with the first command in the Font menu. Print Sheet of Cards -- This command prints an entire sheet of actual-sized cards. In the horizontal format, you can print 10 cards per sheet. In vertical format, you're limited to 9 cards per sheet. In both cases, thin lines on the page indicate the cutlines for the sheet. Any good, sharp paper cutter will produce professional-looking cards. This feature allows you to print your own cards quite quickly, by feeding card stock paper through your laser printer. As an alternative, you can print onto regular paper, then copy your sheet on a copier loaded with card stock. Copy shops, printers, and graphic designers can use this feature to produce an instant set of cards to give customers for use while they wait for the cards to arrive from the printer. NEW FEATURE! Rockford! can now print on pre-scored card stock for even faster instant cards. See the section on this feature later in this manual for more information. Print Four-Up Camera-Ready Layout -- This command prints your cards as a block of four cards on the page. Many printer shops prefer this format. You may choose whether or not to include crop marks. Check with your print shop for its preference. MULTIPLE COPIES All the print options allow you to print multiple copies, using your printer's built-in multiple copy command for increased speed. Just enter the number of copies you want. NOTE: If you plan to print multiple copies, be sure to change your Printer Setup in Windows to the Manual Feed option BEFORE starting Rockford! Changes made after Rockford! is running don't take effect until you re-start the program. Exit -- Quits Rockford!, with a confirmation box. EDIT MENU To use this menu, you must first highlight text in the text-editing box by dragging the mouse over the text you want to use. Then, give one of the commands, or its keyboard shortcut. Copy -- Sends a copy of selected text to the Windows Clipboard. Use <Ctrl>+<Ins> as a shortcut. Cut -- Removes selected text from the editing box, then stores it in the clipboard. <Shift>+<Del> is the keyboard shortcut. Paste -- Copies text from the Windows Clipboard to the current cursor location in the editing box.. Shortcut: <Shift>+<Ins>. Auto-Updating Enabled -- This command, referred to above, is normally off. Click it to add a check mark and enable updating whenever you change lines in the text editing box. LAYOUT MENU This menu duplicates the buttons in the Layout group. Horizontal -- Changes design to the horizontal format. Vertical -- Changes design to a vertical format. Use Pre-scored Card Stock -- Sets Rockford! up to use pre-scored card stock for printing. This new feature lets you print cards on special paper which has the cards pre-cut. This is a check-style command. When it is checked, you can print on pre-scored stock. When it is not checked, you'll print in the regular format. When this command is checked, you can print only full sheets of cards. Pre-scored card stock dimensions: Orientation: Horizontal Cards Per Sheet: 10 Card Size: 2" by 3.5" Top Page Margin: .5" Bottom Page Margin: .5" Side Margins: .25" Space Between Columns: 1" PRE-SCORE NOTES: 1. Due to variations in printers and inconsistencies in paper alignment, you cannot use borders when printing on this material. The Border selection option will be grayed-out if this option is checked. 2. The Vertical card orientation is not available when using pre-scored stock. 3. Pre-scored cards are attached to the backing sheet with small, unscored areas of paper. You can simply tear the cards from the sheet, but you'll get cleaner cards if you use a single-edged razor blade or utility knife to cut the cards free. 4. ALWAYS feed pre-scored card stock manually, and have it exit from the back of the printer. You need the straightest possible paper path. At this time, pre-scored card stock is available from only one source, Paper Direct, a company that specializes in custom paper for laser Printers. It is available in White, Cream, and Light Blue colors. Packages of stock contain 75 sheets and produce 750 cards. The stock costs about $20 per package, or less if you order in quantity. For your convenience, here is the ordering information: Stock Number Color PS1212 White PS1222 Blue PS1252 Cream Paper Direct 205 Chubb Avenue Lyndhurst, NJ 07071 1-800-272-7377 Paper Direct also sells a wide variety of unscored card stock suitable for use with Rockford's regular card-printing options. Disclaimer: OsoSoft has no businees connection with Paper Direct. This information is offered only for your convenience. Margins -- Sets margins for card text. Border Offset -- Changes the offset for card borders from the edges of the card design. PAGE SHIFTING COMMANDS Shift Page Horizontally -- Shifts the whole card layout to the left or right. This command brings up a dialog box letting you enter an amount, in inches to shift the whole page to the left or right. Positive numbers move the page to the right; negative numbers move it to the left. Use this command on pre-scored stock to set up a perfect alignment for your printer. Small numbers, like .05, are usually all you'll need. Be sure to make a test printout when using this command. Shift Page Vertically -- Use this command to shift the card layout up and down on the page. Positive numbers move the layout down; negative numbers move it up. SPECIAL NOTE FOR HP DESKJET USERS: Use the Shift Page Vertically command to shift your page up .25 inches if you're having trouble with cards printing off the paper. Experiment with this command until you get the results you want. FONTS MENU Rebuild Font List -- This command updates your Rockford! font list. Use it if you delete or add new fonts. NOTE: You won't need this command unless you ignore Rockford!'s option to update the font list when you start the program. Make Current Font Default -- this command sets all empty lines of a card design to the font currently shown in the font selection list box. Lines already having another font name will not change. This command also sets the font for printing the descriptive lines on printed layout sheets. Insert Character Styles in Line -- This command opens another menu, which allows you to insert character formatting commands inside text lines in the editing box. These functions are the same as those in the top group of buttons at the right of the screen. PICTURE SCALING MENU The functions in this menu are not duplicated with on-screen buttons. Here you can re-scale a clip art image you've added to your design. All scaling percentages affect the image as it currently appears -- not the original image. Just click on the percentage of change you want. Custom -- This button brings up an input box which lets you enter a customized scaling percentage for your clip art image. Type in a value between 1 and 500 to scale your image, then click OK. Remember, these figures are percentages and, in most cases values ranging from 25% to 250% are most likely to give the effect you want. HELP MENU Help with Rockford! <F1> -- This command opens a new window, which presents help information for Rockford! On the left of this screen is an index of topics covered in the main help screen. To get help on a topic, just click on the topic's name. You can scroll through the list with the scroll bar to find other topics. Once the program finds the topic, the index name will appear highlighted at the top of the screen to the right, with the help information below. If your information cannot be read all on one screen, use the vertical scroll bar next to the help screen to move through the information. NOTE: You can also press <F1> at any time to call the help screen. About Rockford! -- Displays an information box showing version and other information for Rockford! OsoSoft Program Info -- OsoSoft offers several other programs which may interest you. This command displays a window which lets you learn about these other applications. You can also use it to order OsoSoft products. To view information on a program, click the [Info] button next to that program's name. To order, enter the quantity desired for each product. Then fill out your name and address information and mark the appropriate disk size box with an X. Click the [Print] button to print the form or the [Cancel] button to return to Rockford! TUTORIAL SECTION In this section of the manual, you'll go through the process of creating a business card, using all the features of the program. Just follow the steps below. After starting Rockford!, select a format, either horizontal or vertical for your card. You can either click on the appropriate button, or use the Layout Menu. If the current font displayed under the Font box is not the one you want to use for most of the text in the card, choose another font. Now, enter text for your card in the text editing box. Press <Enter> after each line. Subsequent lines will be in the same format used in the previous line. Insert a single blank line anywhere you want vertical spacing. You can alter the font size of this line to adjust the spacing. The WYSIWYG display will be updated each time you press <Enter>. To change fonts or other attributes for a line of text, click inside that line in the text editing box. Then, using the command buttons and lists on the right of the screen, select a font, size, alignment, and any character formatting you want on that line. Remember: You can use the [Dupe Previous] button to duplicate the formatting of the line preceding the current line. If you need split lines, with text on both sides of the card, move the cursor to the line to be changed, then insert a tilde character (~) where you want the line to split, and type the right side of the line. Of course, you can do this when you first enter the text for the line as well. To split the line, select "Split Line at Tilde" in the [Alignment] list box. HINT: Rockford! updates the WYSIWYG display whenever you press <Enter>, change a formatting option, or when you click the [Update] button or click anywhere in the WYSIWYG display. To avoid delays, always use the mouse to move from one line to another. Just click with the cursor where you want to work. Using the cursor keys means that the WYSIWYG display updates after each <Cursor Up> or <Cursor Down> keypress. You can adjust the position of characters on your card by inserting spaces at the beginning or end of text. Experiment to get just the effect you want. Click the [Update] button to view your changes. Once all your text is in place, you may want to add lines, circles, or boxes, using the tools in the Graphics Tools group of commands. See the instructions above for details. Remember: you can alter or delete any graphical element at any time. LINE, BOX and CIRCLE HINTS: Don't forget that you can draw in white, as well as in black. You can erase part of a line or other object by drawing over it in white. This allows a great deal of flexibility. You may want to add a clip art image to your card. To do this, click the [AddPic] button, or use the "Insert Graphic File" command in the File menu. Select your graphic from the file list in the dialog box, then click OK to place it in the upper left-hand corner of the card. Remember, clicking once on a filename in this dialog box lets you preview your clip art images. Once you find the image you want, click OK or double-click on the filename. You can use any of the tools described earlier to position and size your image. Remember, if you change either the height or width of an image, you'll affect its proportions. To size an image without altering its proportions, use the commands in the Graphic Scaling menu. If you'd like a border around your card, select one in the [Borders] list box at the right of the screen. Your chosen border will appear in the WYSIWYG box. NOTE: occasionally, thick border lines will appear broken. Don't worry...this will correct itself in a future update, and printing will always be correct. NOTE: Borders are not available when using Pre-scored Card Stock. If you want your border to be farther from the edges of the card, use the [Offset] button or the Offset command in the Layout menu. Enter a new measurement, but keep in mind that .1 inch moves the border quite a bit. Experiment. Remember that you can always change these measurements later. Similarly, you can use the [Margins] button or command to move the text in from the border or card edges. Again, make changes in small increments. A change of .01 inch will make a noticeable difference. Check your card design frequently, making changes wherever necessary. Once you're completely satisfied, Use the [Save] button or command to save your card. Then print a card layout sheet and inspect the results. NOTE: Due to differences in resolution between screen images and printed output, you may notice minor differences in your card. Check your printout, then make changes in your design to produce the results you want. EDITING YOUR DESIGNS Once you've designed a few cards, you can save them to use as templates for future card designs. Editing Text To replace existing text with new text, the easiest way is to highlight existing text by dragging over it with the mouse, one line at a time. Once the text is highlighted, just type your new text, which will automatically replace the highlighted text. Controlling Line Spacing You can make fine changes in the spacing between lines of text. To do this, make sure there's at least one blank line between the lines you want to change. Then, position the cursor on a blank line and change the font size for that line. You'll see the changes on your screen. You can make changes in 1-point (1/72") intervals. If you need a font size smaller or large than those offered in the font size list, simply type it in the display area of the list. Rockford! does not accept fractional font sizes. Placing Text Beside Clip Art Images You'll often want to position text next to or around clip art images. To do this, use the [Alignment] options. For example, to position text to the right of an image, choose the Right Aligned alignment option, then add spaces after the text to move it left to the position you want. Similarly, use the Left Aligned option to position text to the left of an image. This time, however, place your spaces to the left of the text. To wrap text on both sides of an image, insert a tilde (~) where you want the text to break, then choose the Split at Tilde alignment option. Once again, pad the text with spaces to achieve the position you need. Working with Split Lines Rockford!'s ability to split lines is very powerful, letting you position blocks of text on both sides of the card. Normally, the right half of the line is left-aligned, while the right half is right-aligned. Often, however, you'll want to center blocks of text or manipulate the alignment in other ways. As described above, use spaces to pad the text until it's aligned just the way you want. Click the [Update] button to view your changes. It only takes a few seconds to completely re-align your card. Printing Samples When working with complex card designs, it's always a good idea to print occasional samples of your design for checking. As mentioned above, your printed image may vary slightly from the image in the WYSIWYG screen. After printing a sample, you can make changes to correct slight misalignments. NOTE: You should always print a sample on plain paper before printing on pre-scored card stock to make sure alignment is correct. If it is not, use the Shift commands in the Layout menu to make adjustments. ROCKFORD! TIPS AND HINTS As with all software, there are a number of tricks and techniques you can use to save time and effort. Here are some ideas for using Rockford!: Printing Printing layout sheets and sheets of cards takes time. Rockford! and Windows have to compose graphical pages before a page emerges. You'll need a little patience. If you're printing sheets of cards for instant use, you'll get the best results by printing on pre-scored stock. For maximum quality when printing Rockford! card designs, be sure your laser printer has a good toner cartridge. If you can set print density, choose a medium or dense setting to achieve dark blacks for reproduction. If you're sending your card to a printer as camera-ready copy, select a high-quality paper for printing. Special papers designed just for camera-ready copy are available at office supply stores. Rockford! can handle color and gray-scale clip art images, but the final output will depend on how your printer interprets the colors in your clip art. You'll get the best results by far if you choose black and white line drawings, rather than color or gray-scale images. Creating Multi-Color Cards You can use Rockford! to produce multi-colored cards. Simply design a complete card, with graphics and all text elements. Then, delete information which will not print in a color and print a layout sheet showing just the material for one color. Print a sheet for each color to be used on your card. Rockford! prints accurate registration marks on its layout sheets for easy alignment by your print shop. Working With Clip Art Images Rockford! accepts Windows BMP (bitmap) files. Graphics programs, such as Windows PaintBrush, supplied with Windows, can create these tiles. You can convert other file types to BMP files, using any of a number of format conversion programs, such as HIJAAK, Publisher's PaintBrush, and others. The size of your image is important. Art for business cards is quite small, almost never exceeding 1" in any dimension. Since Rockford! deals with 300 Dot Per Inch (DPI) printers exclusively, it's clear that a 300 X 300 pixel image will print as a 1" square. While Rockford! can handle much larger images, it's usually better to scale large images in a program specifically designed to do that. Windows PaintBrush can handle preliminary scaling quite well. If you have a scanner, you can create your own clip art in minutes. Simply scan the image, then use your scanner software, or a program like Zsoft's Publisher's Paintbrush, to produce a BMP file approximately 300 pixels in each dimension. Naturally, tall narrow images will use other dimensions, but you get the idea. While black and white line images reproduce best in Rockford!, it's worth experimenting with grayscale or color images. Just save them as BMP files, then pop them onto your card. You can also create clip art images with any paint program which can produce one of the file types that Rockford! supports. Creating custom logos isn't difficult at all. Also, a number of clip art libraries are available, both commercially and as shareware. Most often, however, these images will need conversion to a supported format. Finally, if you're not happy with the way an image prints in Rockford!, remember these tips: Very thin lines often don't print well, and don't reproduce well in some printing processes, such as thermography. Large black areas may present problems for your laser printer, and sometimes don't reproduce as completely black. Reducing a large image to business card logo size often results in loss of detail. Increasing the size of tiny images, such as Windows .ICO icon files usually results in jagged lines on your printout. Keep your images simple for maximum impact. Complex line drawings usually don't work as well as iconic art which attracts, but doesn't confuse, the eye. For best results, set the density adjustment on your printer to a medium or dense setting. The darker your blacks, the better your card will look. Lines, Boxes, and Circles You cannot draw a graphical element which extends into a clip art image. The line will end at the edge of the image. You can, however, overwrite text with a line graphic. Let the WYSIWYG display be your guide. Be careful not to let lines, boxes, or circles extend past the card's borders. Always check the WYSIWYG display for conflicts. Use the [Update] button to see the results of your changes. As you draw and move lines, text may not appear if it has been overwritten. Update to see the actual image. Use the [Draw White] option to create special effects. Combining thick lines with intersecting white lines can create interesting effects. You can create quite complex drawings using the line drawing tools alone, including simple logos. You can also draw boxes or circles around existing text on your design. It's best to first create the text, then follow up with lines, boxes, and circles. Use the positioning scroll bars for precise sizing and placement. TIPS FOR INSTANT BUSINESS CARDS Since Rockford! can produce sheets of business cards, ready for cutting, you can use it to create small batches of cards for any purpose. Many professional users offer their clients a set of 50-100 cards to get them by until their printed or thermographed cards are ready. Individual users can use this feature to produce their entire set of cards, avoiding the print shop altogether. Here are a few tips to get the best results: *Use the darkest setting available for your printer. *Select a good quality card stock paper, but make sure your printer can handle this material. Not all laser printers can cope with heavy paper. For Hewlett-Packard LaserJets, a 50 - 67 lb. paper works just fine. *Select the feed option for your printer which sends the paper on the straightest path possible through the printer. Usually this means using the rear output tray. NOTE: You MUST use this feed option with pre-scored card stock! Printing takes time. You'll get things done most quickly if you print a sheet of cards on regular paper, then copy that sheet on card stock with a high-quality copier. Don't settle just for white card stock. If you're an individual user, your local copy center can supply this material in several patterns and colors. Using a colored or patterned paper will make your card stand out. DESIGNING EFFECTIVE BUSINESS CARDS Rockford! doesn't design your business card.....You Do! With Rockford!, your options are almost unlimited, and you can quite easily produce either an excellent card which will produce a powerful impact on those who receive it. On the other hand, you can just as quickly produce an ugly, ineffective card. The best way to get ideas for business card designs is to study cards others use. Go through your own collection of business cards or visit a copy center or print shop and look at their samples. Which cards jump out at you? Which cards present an effective appearance? Which ones do you think are loud, garish, or inappropriate? By looking at many card designs, you'll soon develop an eye for good design. Still, there are a few basic principles to think about: Make the card fit your profession. Doctors, lawyers, and other professionals usually use conservative card designs with few embellishments. On the other hand, if you're a gardener or a musician, you may choose a bright, lively card design which grabs the recipient's attention immediately and makes him or her remember your name. Don't overdo the use of fonts. While it's amazingly easy to include multiple fonts using Windows, Rockford! and Adobe Type Manager, try to resist the temptation. Typically, your best bet is to choose one attractive font for your name, company name, or other main lines, then use a simpler font, such as Helvetica for details, such as address and telephone number information. Similarly, watch your use of graphics. A garish or highly ornamental graphic is usually not the most effective tool in card design. Instead, select a company logo, or a simple line drawing which will catch the reader's eye without shocking him or her. Most companies have discovered that a highly-memorable icon logo is far more effective in reminding people about the company than an ornate image. The same thing applies to line, boxes, and circles. Keep your design simple for best results. Don't let a too-bold line object overpower your card. After all, you want your customers or clients to remember your name or company name....not a line. Finally, if your card needs to display several items in a list, try using Rockford!'s bullet feature. It's automatic and effective. WHY REGISTER YOUR COPY OF ROCKFORD!?
