-= OVERVIEW =-


What is FAN-Print?

Many programs allow you to set condensed mode, pica, elite,
proportional and maybe a few others, but FAN-print will be the only
program you need to set all your text printer commands. FAN-print
contains over 50 commands, here are a few examples...


Line Spacing (1/8, 7/72, 1/6, n/216 etc...)

Printing Style (NLQ, Pica, Italics, Draft etc...)

Printing Color (if installed) (Blue, Red etc...)

Enhancement (Bold, Double Strike, Subscript etc...)

Extra IBM Codes (Top of Form, Overscore, Elite etc...)

Odds & Ends (Half Speed mode, Disable Paper-out Sensor etc...)



These are just a few examples of what FAN-print can do for you.
FAN-print should definitely be worth a test drive, if you don't find
this program useful then pass it on. If you continually use this
utility then REGISTER IT. Your registration motivates the programmers
to continuously update and develop new programs and offer you the
savings.


System Requirements :

An IBM PC, XT, AT or compatible

MS-DOS (PC-DOS) Version 2.0 or later

Floppy Disk Drive or Hard Drive

Minimum 100K memory

Color Monitor

Epson compatible printer

-= USING FAN-PRINT =-


How do I select an item :

This can be accomplished in two different ways.

1) The first being to use the cursor keys to scroll through
the selection items with the highlight bar. Simply set
the highlighted bar on your choice and press enter.

2) The fastest way is to press the highlighted character of
the item you select.
