WHAT IS EDRAW--------------------------------------------------

EDRAW - Easydraw - is an IBM PC based general purpose drawing
program designed for technical people like engineers, teachers
and students. Besides drawing lines, boxes, circles and
symbols, the USER-SUPPORTED program includes logic/electronic
symbols enabling a user to draw electronic circuits. The
program is ideal for drawing schematics, block diagrams,
flowcharts and features automatic panning.

EDRAW requires 384k of memory, a CGA or EGA graphic adapter,
supports most mice, and prints on Epson or compatible printers.

EDRAW requires users to install - explained below - the EDRAW
distribution disk onto a floppy or a hard drive using a simple
INSTALL procedure. The installed version - EDRAW working disk -
MAY NOT be distributed.

The steps to become a successful EDRAW user are:

____ Print the README file.

____ Install EDRAW on a floppy.

____ Run automated demonstrations EDEMO1 and EDEMO3.

____ Print the manual.

____ Step thru MANUAL TUTORIAL in the manual.

____ Draw and print your first drawing.

____ Order/register for the complete EDRAW package.

AUTOMATED DEMONSTRATION-------------------------------------

After installing EDRAW, a user can execute an automated
demonstration of EDRAW. The demonstrations are named Edemo1,
Edemo2.... To start a demonstration reboot computer to remove
all stay-resident drivers then

floppy user: insert installed disk into drive A
floppy user: A:

hard disk user: C: your hard disk drive
hard disk user: CD\EDRAW

Press any key to advance past the copyright notice.

From the UTILITY menu, press CTRL O (the letter). Most of the
demonstration programs will pause - advance to the next frame
with the space bar only. To stop a demo depress CTRL, ALT,
DELETE and remove the disk.


The DOS command COPY MANUAL.DOC PRN will print the EDRAW
users manual. A section in the manual - MANUAL TUTORIAL - will
take you step by step into EDRAW.
