P C - S I G ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Welcome to the world of Shareware, state of the art software you can actually try before you buy. Shareware, a term coined in the early eighties, refers to the method of distribution chosen by the software authors. With shareware, you can receive a program and put it through its paces without having to pay for it. If you find the program useful, and choose to keep the program, then you pay a modest registration fee to the author. For the last nine years, PC-SIG has been providing shareware and public domain software to its customers and members. Since 1982 PC-SIG has developed an unprecedented library of shareware programs, constantly updated, consistently strong in every category. Our library of shareware contains over 3500 titles divided into 120 logical categories. Every program we add to the library is thoroughly reviewed and tested to insure that each one meets the high standards of reliability and value we insist upon and you expect. As a result, our library doesn't contain every shareware program available, just those that really work. PC-SIG has grown into the premier distributor of shareware and and shareware information by producing shareware collections on CD-ROM, publishing an encyclopedia of shareware, and by publishing Shareware Magazine, a bi-monthly magazine distributed world-wide. Quality and support - guaranteed. All of our programs are guaranteed virus free. We've isolated our systems and check every program submitted to insure that no viruses make their way to your computer or ours. Our support staff is available by phone as well as on our BBS to help you with questions about installation and operation of PC-SIG's products. Through our network of international distributors, PC- SIG strives to bring you the most current, exciting, technically advanced software available as shareware.

S H A R E W A R E M A G A Z I N E ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Shareware Magazine has distinguished itself as the only internationally distributed periodical devoted to the use and business of shareware. Shareware Magazine provides detailed reviews of new products, hard-hitting comparisons of shareware programs with regular retail software, and timely information about changes in the industry and the latest technology. Intriguing columnists and regular features add to the excitement. The beginners section sheds light on new user's concerns regarding everything from choosing the right operating system to alleviating the intimidation of using on-line systems. Educational sections focus on how low cost shareware can aid in classroom learning, curriculum development, and as a forum for discussing the impact of computers and technology in schools. Graphics Gallery renders expert advice and suggestions on how to better work with graphics, desktop publishing, CAD systems, and the Windows environment. Programmers benefit from others experience in developing new programs or polishing existing ones as well as choosing the right programming language. And columnists provide that subjective component, sometimes controversial, that calls for a closer look at the way we compute and how shareware effects what we do.

WinPrint 1.4 Release Notes Release 1.44 February 5, 1992 Copyright (c) 1990-1992 Charles E. Kindel, Jr. Portions Copyright (c) 1985-1992 Microsoft Corporation. Charles E. Kindel, Jr. 22925 N.E. 12th Place Redmond, WA 98053 CompuServe ID: 71551,1445 Please do not be shy in reporting bugs or suggestions! For information on using WinPrint or for registering WinPrint use WinHelp to read the WINPRINT.HLP file. WHAT IS WINPRINT? WinPrint is a Windows shareware application that allows you to easily print ASCII text files from within Windows. It allows you to specify headers and footers with page numbers, fonts, margins, landscape v. portrait mode, and "multiple pages up" printing. See the WINPRINT.HLP file for a more complete description. WinPrint was designed from the very beginning to be a tool for printing plain text files. Version 1.3 and Version 1.4 do not support the printing of graphics, word processing documents, or spreadsheets. The goal from has been to keep WinPrint as small, efficient, and simple as possible. If you want to print graphics use PaintBrush it works just fine. If you want to print your word processing documents, use your word processor, and if you want to print spreadsheets use your spreadsheet package; they all print nicely. But if you want to print plain ASCII text files use WinPrint! The WINPRINT.HLP file contains all the documentation you will need. It also contains information on how to register WinPrint. GETTING STARTED A few quick notes on what is needed to run WinPrint: Under Windows 3.0 and 3.0a you need the following Dynamic Link Libraries (DLLs) in your path: TDUTIL.DLL - WinPrint Support DLL COMMDLG.DLL - Microsoft Common Dialogs DLL. You only need this file if you are running on Windows 3.0. You will also need the main WINPRINT.EXE executable file and the help file (WINPRINT.HLP). I recommend that you create a "WINAPPS" directory off of your root directory in which you place all of your "small" Windows applications such as WinPrint. Copy the above files into this directory and make sure that the directory is in your path statement. You can now run WinPrint just as you would any Windows application. See the section in the WINPRINT.HLP file titled STARTING WINPRINT for more details. NOTES TO USERS OF WINPRINT 1.3 WinPrint 1.32 was designed Windows 2.x application. It worked correctly under Windows 3.0 because it adhered to Microsoft's programming guidelines for Windows. WinPrint 1.4 has been designed as a Windows 3.x application. It takes advantage of features found only in Windows 3.0 and above. As such, it will not run on Windows 2.x, and will not operate correctly with printer drivers that have not been updated to the Windows 3.0 specification. Versions of Windows previous to Windows 3.0 provided no way for applications to store printer settings "locally." For example any change made to printer settings from within an application (such as landscape mode) were made system wide. The Windows 3.0 printer driver specification allows for applications to change printer settings locally. WinPrint 1.4 takes advantage of this, and adheres to the policy that no application except Control Panel can make system wide printer setting changes. One of the biggest bugs in WinPrint 1.32 was that it incorrectly selected fonts. For example you would tell it to print using a 10 point font, but it would actually use a font much smaller. This has been corrected in WinPrint 1.4. Because of the changes to WinPrint 1.4 are fundamental in nature, saved configurations from earlier versions will not be converted. It might have been possible to do a partial conversion of your settings to the new format, but there are so many new features and bug fixes in 1.4 that the conversion would have been inaccurate at best. The decision was made that it would be easier for the user to re-create your settings than to try to figure out what was converted correctly and what was not. WinPrint 1.32 saved all configuration information in the WIN.INI file. WinPrint 1.4 saves all of it's configuration information in the WINPRINT.INI file. The format of the information has changed, but when WinPrint 1.4 is run on a machine for the first time, it copies your registration information to the WINPRINT.INI file. Once you run WinPrint 1.4 for the first time you can delete all WinPrint related sections from your WIN.INI file if you wish. I have also changed the format of WinPrint registration numbers. WinPrint 1.4 will correctly decode your 1.32 registration number and convert it to the new format. This has been done for several reasons: 1) The old WinPrint registration number was up to 12 characters long and was too difficult to enter. 2) The new number format allows me to more easily track what version of WinPrint a user is using. KNOWN PROBLEMS Version 1.42 of WinPrint has been extensively tested. However there are a few problems that are known and are not worth the time it would take to fix at this point: SOME WINDOWS 3.0 PRINTER DRIVERS ARE BUGGY Many of the Dot Matrix printer drivers shipped with Windows 3.0 are buggy, and most do not in fact conform the the Windows 3.0 printer driver specification. Because of this you will not be able to change printer settings from WinPrint with these drivers. See the WINPRINT.HLP file for more information on this. POSTSCRIPT EMULATORS REPORT INCORRECT PAGE SIZE Several PostScript addon products and emulators incorrectly report page size to Windows. The result is that when WinPrint is set up so all margins are set to 0.00", some text is printed "off page." If you encounter this problem simply increase all four margins until the problem goes away (usually 0.10" works). This problem has been noted on the HP LaserJet IIIsi in PostScript mode and the PacificPage Postscript cartridge for the HP LaserJet II. DOT MATRIX DRIVERS SELECT FONTS INCORRECTLY Some Windows 3.0 dot matrix printer drivers allow you to set the resoultion that they print graphics at. When these drivers are set at their lowest resolution settings they print some fonts too big. The easy work around is to set the driver up to use higher resolution or print only with device based fonts (see WINPRINT.HLP for more details). VERSION HISTORY Version 1.44 February 5, 1992 Same as version 1.43 except distributed via standard shareware channels such as CompuServe. Version 1.43 February 4, 1992 This version is a maintenece release. It fixes some minor cosmetic problems. This version will be distributed with a book called Windows 3.1 Power Tools. Version 1.41 February 4, 1992 This version is a maintenence release. Verion 1.40 had a major bug in the command line handling (it was essentailly compeletely broken). Version 1.42 also removes the need for SHELL.DLL. Version 1.40 November 1, 1991 After over a year and a half, there is finally a new release of WinPrint! This version is completely re- vamped and updated for Windows 3.0 and 3.1. New features include multiple column printing, Windows help, and drag drop from the Windows 3.1 file manager. Version 1.32 July 22, 1990 The original wide distribution version. LICENSE INFORMATION WinPrint is not and has never been public domain software, nor is it free software.
