Contents of the README.1ST file
Thank you for using KWIKLABL.
You should have four files.
KWIKLABL.EXE - The main program
KWIKLABL.DOC - The manual or documentation
REGISTER.FRM - A convenient order form for KWIKLABL. To print just
type at the prompt: COPY REGISTER.FRM PRN
README.1ST - This file
I hope that you will print the manual and read it carefully, but if you
are like most of us, you will want to jump in and get started with the
program. This is fine, because KWIKLABL is a "user-friendly" program.
HOWEVER! There are a few things that you must set or at least check on
your printer. They are:
(1) Make sure your internal printer switches are set for Epson/standard
mode and not IBM mode.
(2) If you have a front panel pitch selector on your printer, it must
be set to Program mode.
(3) It's a good idea to put your printer in LQ mode instead of DRAFT
mode. KWIKLABL will command the LQ mode when needed.
(4) KWIKLABL makes maximum use of the emphasized or bold command to
give dark, clean printing. On some of the older 9-pin printers
(my brother has one) the emphasize command cancels the compressed
printing command thus preventing the address from being properly
located under the borders in the return address labels. If you
have this problem, please note that you have a choice (BOLD PRINT
on the menu) of cancelling the emphasized printing command and
curing the problem.
NOTES ABOUT THE CUSTOM BORDER EDITOR -- The editor is very simple to
operate but there are a few things you should keep in mind. The
design you make will be repeated seven times to make a border. If
you'll notice some of my designs like stars or pots, there are seven
of them. With this in mind, you should either have space on the
sides for individual designs or, if you are making a continuous
design, make sure the lines will match from one to the next. Other
than that, it's simple. Just move with the directional keys and
mark or un-mark with the SPACEBAR. For faster marking or un-marking
hold down the Ctrl key while moving with the left arrow key or the
right arrow key.
Now go have a ball with KWIKLABL and if you like it, please register or
at least drop me a line with your comments or suggestions.
