Contents of the -README3.TXT file




3X3.EXE is a program for making labels for 3.5" Disks

This is the shareware version.

Files:
1. -README3.TXT This file

2. 3X3 .EXE The main program

3. MYLOGO .TXT The active logo file.
Must be in same directory
as the 3X3.EXE program

4. MYLOGO .RBT &
MYLOGO .PSL Example logo files
MYLOGO .3X3

5. THISDISK.TXT Note file for this disk
& example for other disks
optional for disk being
labeled (must be on that disk)

6. INVOICE .TXT The invoice for using this
program on a regular basis


The easiest way to test this program is to make sample labels
for this disk and then try other disks.

When copying to another disk, PLEASE remember to include the
file MYLOGO.TXT. You can use your own logo or whatever
but the file must be present. When editing the logos, stay
within the boxes. If your printer does not print ASCII graphics,
you will have to change the lines to "-" and "|". You will also
have to do this if using NLQ.

If you have added a 3.5" drive to your AT or XT and have the
DRIVER.SYS in your CONFIG.SYS there should be no problem
using the original designation of the drive instead of its
new assigned letter.

Please check the program info on the second menu.

The printer type can be entered at the command line.

EXAMPLE: 3X3 /p


Leave a space after the program name, then use a slash and enter
your desired choice.

p = printer type, F for Epson FX (default)
Q for Epson LQ
R for Epson RX - no ASCII graphics




Note to Epson LQ users-

If your printer overrides the label length and form feeds 11",
switch to single sheet rather than continuous forms setting.
(the big lever on the right side on a LQ850)

If you have a LQ2500 with color option, use the 'special setups'
choice in the second menu to set colors other than black.

The program will work with draft, roman and sans serif fonts and
must be set for 10 cpi pitch. Other fonts, especially soft fonts,
can cause unpredictable results.

LQ printers will do the ASCII graphics but some of the characters
may screw up the line spacing. If you get labels being skipped,
this may be the cause and you will have to change your logo file.

When copying to another disk, PLEASE remember to include the
file MYLOGO.TXT. You can use your own logo or whatever but
the file must be present.

If you have added a 3.5" drive to your AT or XT and have the
DRIVER.SYS in your CONFIG.SYS there should be no problem
using the original designation of the drive instead of its
new assigned letter.


Notes on Labels-

If you have a friction feed printer, you may want to try
using 2.75" adding machine tape. The only tractor feed labels
I have found are several times the cost of labels for 5.25"
disks. (I have to buy them at an APPLE dealer for $7 per 100.)


I have finally found sources for form feed labels for the
3.5" disks.
