USING IMAGEPRINT WITH PC-WRITE 2.7
----------------------------------

The file PR.DEF on the ImagePrint disk should be substituted for your
current file of the same name. It contains the following alt keystroke to
backslash command mappings:

Doubled alt: selects: text inserted in file:

ALT-A,ALT-A = FONT1 \1
ALT-B,ALT-B = bold \B
ALT-C,ALT-C = compressed \<
ALT-D,ALT-D = double width \W
ALT-E,ALT-E = 12 cpi fast \|\F
ALT-F,ALT-F = nothing
ALT-G,ALT-G = FONT6 \6
ALT-H,ALT-H = superscript \^
ALT-I,ALT-I = italic \I
ALT-J,ALT-J = FONT7 \7
ALT-K,ALT-K = nothing
ALT-L,ALT-L = subscript \V
ALT-M,ALT-M = nothing
ALT-N,ALT-N = FONT10 \10
ALT-O,ALT-O = FONT11 \11
ALT-P,ALT-P = pica quality \>\Q
ALT-Q,ALT-Q = 12 cpi quality \|\Q
ALT-R,ALT-R = nothing
ALT-S,ALT-S = bold (second strike) \B
ALT-T,ALT-T = FONT12 \12
ALT-U,ALT-U = underline \U
ALT-V,ALT-V = proportional \P
ALT-W,ALT-W = cancel \C

Note that the above alt keystrokes do not correspond to the suggested
keystrokes used in earlier PC-Write to ImagePrint adaptations. They
conform more closely (but not completely) to suggested PC-Write usage.

When you "print" a file from within PC-Write, you must print to a file
and then run ImagePrint to print the file on your printer.

Always >>DOUBLE UP ON YOUR KEYSTROKES<< so PC-Write won't append any mode
termination sequences to the end of lines. This allows commands to
persist beyond the current line. And ALWAYS turn off any ImagePrint
toggling (bold, double width, italic, underline) commands before the end
of a line is reached. This is because PC-Write won't bother to insert the
command in the file if it thinks that it would serve no purpose. For
example:

OK:
this is bold and this is not
which results in:
this is \Bbold\B and this is not

WRONG:
this is bold to the end of the line
which results in:
this is \Bbold to the end of the line

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read: http://www.os2museum.com/wp/mtswslnk/
