Enough of this legal stuff! On with the DOC!
To install POP-BOX, type BOX (tough huh?). You will see a
sign-on copyright screen informing you of the current version and
the hot key to use to activate POP-BOX (usually Alt-Left Shift-B).
To activate POP-BOX, press the hot key(s) (usually Alt-Left Shift-B).
If POP-BOX can not load at that time (you are in graphics mode or
in the middle of a DOS call) you will hear a short tone. Try again
when not in graphics mode or after the DOS call is completed.
When you are in your editor, bring up POP-BOX. You will be
presented with a menu bar. The choices are:
Draw Box - Allows you to use the arrow keys to draw a box
of any size.
Change Line Type - Allows you to change the type of line characters
used to draw the box. Pressing return on this
choice will cycle through the line types.
Export Box - This choice outputs your box into your editor at
your current cursor location in the editor.
Exit - Go back to your editor without exporting the box.
Unload POP-BOX - Removes POP-BOX from memory.
Use the left and right arrow to choose an item and the key
to select the highlighted choice.
Press the key when at the menu to exit back to your editor
without exporting the box (as if you chose EXIT from the menu bar).
And that's it! Easy huh?
If you encounter any problems using POP-BOX with any editors or
other TSR programs, or if you have suggestions for enhancements,
please forward them to me at the above address. I will try and
include all suggestions in future releases as much as possible.
