Drag And View v.2.0 - File Viewers for
Win 3.1 File Manager or any file manager
that supports Drag and Drop. ASP Shareware.
Drag And View adds what's missing to
file manager. Views most popular database,
word processor, spreadsheet, and graphic
formats, plus also ASCII and HEX. Has
search and goto functions. Open multiple
windows and compare files.
What is Drag And View?

Drag And View is a program that lets you view the contents of a file or
files without having to run the program that created them. Drag And View
can view the files created by popular word processors, databases,
spreadsheets and graphic programs in their native format. You can also view
any file in plain ASCII or hexadecimal format. Drag And View allows you to
open multiple windows so you can easily compare files. You can search for
text in any file or a hexadecimal string in the Hex viewer. You can also go
to any cell in a spreadsheet, any record in a database and any address in
the hexadecimal view of a file. Drag And View Plus is the same program as
Drag And View but has the addition of the Halcyon Vector Import Library and
allows viewing of many vector file formats.

You can view files with Drag And View in two different ways. You can drag
the selected files from any file manager that supports drag and drop to the
Drag And View icon or to any open Drag And View window. Or, you can click
on the "Fml" menu item that is added to Windows File Manager's menu bar and
choose "View files".

Using the view files option will not open a new window if a window is
already open. The same is true if you drag files to an open Drag And View
window. Dragging files to the Drag And View icon will always open a new
window with the files displayed.

Every Drag And View window maintains a listing of the files that you dragged
to it in the "Filelist" menu. You can use the "Filelist" menu to choose a
particular file in the list to view or you can use the "Last" and "Next"
buttons to scroll through the files.

Also part of the Drag And View utilities is Fileman Launcher. Fileman
Launcher installs itself as a file manager accessory. Fileman Launcher will
run Drag And View automatically everytime you run Windows File Manager and
it will exit Drag And View everytime that you exit File Manager. Fileman
Launcher will keep the DV icon from being covered when you are working in
File Manager. And, Fileman Launcher will memember the place where you last
left the DV icon and will place it there the next time you run File Manager.
You can add up to 9 other programs to Fileman Launcher and have it manage
them the same way as it manages Drag And View. You can access Fileman
Laucher from "Fml" menu item that it adds to Windows File Manager. To add
or remove programs or change the way Fileman Launcher runs programs select
"Modify program list" from the "Fml" menu.

Installing Drag And View

Installation of Drag And View is very easy with the setup program provided.
From Program Manager, choose "File" from the menu bar and then choose "Run"
from the pull down menu. In the dialog box type the full path where the
files are, and the program name DVSETUP.EXE. For example, if you were
installing from drive A:, you would enter "A:\DVSETUP.EXE". If you were
installing from the "DV" directory of drive C:, you would enter
"C:\DV\DVSETUP.EXE".

The DVSetup program will ask you which drive and directory you are
installing Drag And View from, and which drive and directory you would like
to install them to. If the source path is different from the destination
path, all files will be copied over to the new path. If the files on the
installation diskette are compressed, the DVSetup program will uncompress
them while copying them. The DVSetup program will then create a program
group called Drag And View and put the Drag And View icon in it. DVSetup
will also install Fileman Launcher. Fileman Launcher is a File Manager
accessory that will run Drag And View everytime that you run File Manager
and exit Drag And View everytime that you exit File Manager.

Using Drag And View

You can use Drag And View two different ways. You can drag files from the
file manager to its icon or, if you're running Windows 3.1 File Manager, you
can use the "Fml" menu that Fileman Launcher adds to File Manager's menu
bar.

When you run Drag And View it will load and show its icon at the bottom left
of your screen. If you want to drag files to Drag and View's icon, Drag And
View must be running. It will not work if you try to drag files to its icon
in Program Manager. If you run Drag And View from Fileman Launcher, Fileman
Launcher will keep the Drag And View icon from being covered when File
Manager is the active program. If you are not running Drag And View from
Fileman Launcher and you want to keep it's icon form being covered, you can
do so by choosing "Always visible" from the Drag And View icon System menu.
First click on the Drag And View icon and bring up the System menu. Click
on the menu selection that says "Always visible". That will cause the Drag
And View icon to show through anything that is trying to cover it. You can
turn that option off the same way. Click on the Drag And View icon and
bring up the menu. You will notice that there is now a check before the
choice "Always Visible". Click again on "Always Visible" and Drag And View
will stop peeking through applications that are covering it. The state of
the Always Visible option will be saved when you exit Drag And View and will
become active the next time you run it.

Fileman Launcher will remember the last position of the Drag And View icon
and put it there the next time you run File Manager. If you choose not to
run Drag And View from Fileman Launcher, you can also have Drag And View
save it's icon position from the icon menu.

To view files with Drag And View, you drag files from any file manager that
supports drag and drop to the Drag And View icon and Drag and View will open
a window displaying those files. The first file in the group that you
dragged will be the one that is displayed. All the files will be listed in
the window's "Filelist" menu and you can use that menu to display the other
files. Additionally if you're running Windows' File Manager, you can choose
"Fml" from the menu bar and then choose "View files" from the pull down
menu.

If you want to view two or more files in the file listing simultaneously,
you can choose the "New Window" button and Drag And View will open up a new
window with the same file list. You can open up as many windows this way as
your computer's memory will support. You can also drag more files to any
open Drag And View window; they will be added to the "Filelist" menu and the
first one in the group will be displayed. The "Filelist" menu will hold up
to 20 files. After 20, as you drag new files, the older ones will be
dropped off the list.

When Drag And View displays a file, it first tries to determine if it can
display the file in one of its special viewers. If there is no special
viewer for the file, it will be shown with either the ASCII viewer (if the
file is made up chiefly of readable characters) or the Hex viewer.

The Drag And View icon will still remain at the bottom of your screen even
after you've dragged files to it and opened up a viewing window. You can
continue to drag files to the icon and each time that you do, a new window
will be opened.

Any open Drag And View window can be closed, maximized or minimized to an
icon. You can drag files to a minimized Drag And View window and it will be
restored and display your files.

To exit the Drag And View program, you must choose "Close" from the system
menu of the Drag And View icon. You activate the system menu by clicking
your mouse on the icon. When Drag And View exits, all the open windows will
be closed. You can choose to just close all the open Drag And View windows
and not exit Drag And View by choosing "Close All Windows" from the Drag And
View icon system menu.

You can also run Drag And View from the File/Run menu of any program
manager. If you use a file name as a command line argument, Drag And View
will run and display the file that you specified in a window. You can also
install Drag And View as the viewer for other programs such as our Zip
manager, Drag And Zip.

Fileman Launcher will remember the last position of the Drag And View icon
and put it there the next time you run File Manager. If you choose not to
run Drag And View from Fileman Launcher, you can also have Drag And View
save it's icon position from the icon menu.

To view files with Drag And View, you drag files from any file manager that
supports drag and drop to the Drag And View icon and Drag and View will open
a window displaying those files. The first file in the group that you

the window's "Filelist" menu and you can use that menu to display the other
files. Additionally if you're running Windows' File Manager, you can choose
"Fml" from the menu bar and then choose "View files" from the pull down
menu.

If you want to view two or more files in the file listing simultaneously,
you can choose the "New Window" button and Drag And View will open up a new
window with the same file list. You can open up as many windows this way as
your computer's memory will support. You can also drag more files to any
open Drag And View window; they will be added to the "Filelist" menu and the

The Drag And View icon will still remain at the bottom of your screen even
after you've dragged files to it and opened up a viewing window. You can
continue to drag files to the icon and each time that you do, a new window
will be opened.

Any open Drag And View window can be closed, maximized or minimized to an
icon. You can drag files to a minimized Drag And View window and it will be
restored and display your files.

To exit the Drag And View program, you must choose "Close" from the system
menu of the Drag And View icon. You activate the system menu by clicking
your mouse on the icon. When Drag And View exits, all the open windows will
be closed. You can choose to just close all the open Drag And View windows
and not exit Drag And View by choosing "Close All Windows" from the Drag And
View icon system menu.

You can also run Drag And View from the File/Run menu of any program
manager. If you use a file name as a command line argument, Drag And View
will run and display the file that you specified in a window. You can also
install Drag And View as the viewer for other programs such as our Zip
manager, Drag And Zip.



There seems to be a bug in the drivers for the ATI VGA Ultra card that
causes a General Protection Fault in their driver. We are trying to
contact ATI about that, but in the meantime there is a fix for them.

Load the file DV.INI into a text editor like Windows Notepad. DV.INI will
be in the directory where you installed Drag And View. Look for a
heading called "[fonts]". If there isn't one, create one. If there is a
"[fonts]" heading, there will be a line under it saying
"facename=Courier". Either modify that line or create one if necessary
that says "Facename=FIXEDSYS". That should fix the problem, but you
will not be able to change your fonts in Drag And View without generating
a General Protection Fault until we get a work around from ATI or they
fix their drivers.
