Press F9 to go to the prior card.7 Press F2 to take this card out of the rack to get more"information, or to put it back in.? When you get to the bottom of the screen, the rack will scrollup showing you more cards.= Or just use a mouse. The first click goes to the card. The>second click takes it out of the rack, the third puts it back. 9D‰02 License Agreement@Copyright 1985-1988, by Quickview Systems for this software, the;software documentation and the user interface.

We appreciate your$respecting our copyrights in return.Dªƒ304 Cards and Racks: Zoomracks' Rack Metaphor@Zoomracks lets you structure your information management problem=in familiar terms: (index) cards in racks. It lets you view,5sort, organize, and manipulate them any way you want.=Zoomracks keeps the cards in racks like those next to factory>time clocks so you can see the first line of several cards, or>take out a card (like you are doing now). The cards in a rackAcan be divided into as many as 27 Fieldscrolls, each of which can%have 250 lines of 80 characters each.AThe racks are called Zoomracks, to remind you that you can "zoom"=in on them; the cards, Quickcards, to remind you that you canAquickly take them out of a rack; and the fields, Fieldscrolls, to@remind you that they are really 250 line word processor scrolls.^D«‚U605 The Mouse: Using the Mouse to Navigate@Using the mouse is simple.

If you press it once, it does something?visible. Pressing it a second time reverses what it did if you1don't like it. F2-Zoom card is a Toggle command.=Other commands come in pairs where each one reverses what the?other does. Example: F9 previous card, and F10 next card page.?When you know how to reverse commands, you will feel in controlAand be willing to experiment, and find Zoomracks both easy to useand fun.FD­‚=507 SHIFT F1 HELP: The On-line Reference Rack;If you want to know what a command does, use Control -> and(loading it if necessary) and to the card in it that describesAthe selected command. This card describes what the command does,and how to reverse it.The next card shows a matrix of Zoomracks commands. The first>column shows you the menu the commands are on; the second, the?general command name; the next four, the specific commands; andlines. When you know what one command does, you know what its?three counterparts do. For example, F10 goes to the next card,@so, too, "]" goes to the next rack, TAB to the next Fieldscroll,and Control X to the next line.´D¯„«909 The Command Matrix: Command Card for Most CommandsGMenu Command Rack Card Field Line ReverseEAlt Z Zoom F3(load)/F4 F2 F5 n/a ZoomIAlt N Next ] F10 TAB control X PriorH Prior [ F9 BACKTAB control E NextGAlt G Beginning of HOME Z HOME Q HOME F HOME L BacktoG END of END Z END Q END F END L BacktoG Backto B Z B Q n/a n/a BacktoDALt C Create INS Z INS Q See SH F3 n/a CutF Cut DEL Z DEL Q DEL F DEL L PasteE Copy C Z C Q C F C L noneD Paste P Z P Q n/a P L CutE Replace n/a n/a R F R L noneEAlt O PrinT T Z T Q n/a n/a noneE Display D Z D Q n/a n/a noneE Ascii file A Z n/a n/a n/a noneE out to Field F Z F Q n/a n/a noneÄD°»310 ESC Escaping to a Safe PlaceBAt any time if you can type ESC, the Escape key, it will interrupt6what you are doing and let you escape to a safe place.; ESC C: Clear what you are doing and return to main menu.4 ESC F7: Abort any macro definition you are making.( ESC M: Turn on the menu if it is off.$ ESC ESC: Resume what you are doing.@ If you are printing or outputting to the display, ESC stops theaction.’D±‚‰811 Search: Search and Selecting Commands8F8 string F8: Go to next card in the rack that has the3specified string on some line of the current field.>SHIFT F8: Toggle between selecting all cards, and just those?that matched the last search.

Racks use only as much space as there is text in3them so you are not 'charged' for unused space. (AAsingle card would have 540,000 bytes of memory in it (27 fields xA250 lines x 80 characters). The 'gas gauge' at the bottom of the6screen shows you how much RAM you are currently using."D¿ƒ625 Application: Using Macros to Merge Racks@This application demonstrates Zoomracks macros: If you have two?racks (Rack 2 and Rack 3) that have the same format and want to,copy all the cards from one rack to another:;1. Move one card from Rack 2 to Rack 3. Type 2 DEL Q 3 P Q3 This should move one card from Rack 2 to Rack 3.=2. Now define a macro to move one card from Rack 2 to Rack 3.7Call the macro M for move. Type SHIFT F7 M 2 DEL Q 3 P:Q SHIFT F7. This will move another card from Rack 2 to 3.<3. Type F7 M. This will move a third card from Rack 2 to 3.D4. Type F7 # 3 M. This will move three more cards from Rack 2 to 3.:5. Type F7 # M.

  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/
