If GALAXY is distributed on two 360K floppy disks, all the files except
PRINTERS.PRD should be on one diskette, labeled "PROGRAM DISK", and
PRINTERS.PRD should be on the second diskette, labeled "PRINTERS".

If any of the above files are missing, or the size or date are
different, you do not have a complete shareware evaluation copy! If
that's the case, please contact Omniverse Software Corp. and we'll
help you find a shareware evaluation copy.

If you have experienced using any other full-featured word processing
program, GALAXY's friendliness will be a welcome change of pace. Even
if you're new to computer word processing, you'll be up and running
with GALAXY in minutes.

Colorful, well-organized pull-down menus and dialog boxes, an extensive
help system, and instantaneous response make GALAXY a breeze to learn
and a pleasure to use.

Full mouse support gives you the option of working without keyboard
commands at all, if you prefer. GALAXY groups series of commands
together in dialog boxes to make formatting text effortless. Choose
the options that best suit your document with the mouse or arrow keys,
then simply press Enter. It's that easy.

And whether you're using a dialog box, pull-down menu, or working in a
document window, context-sensitive help is always online, ready to
explain a highlighted command to you. Like all other GALAXY commands,
it's right in front of you, just a keystroke away.

Register your copy of GALAXY and you will also receive the award
winning Microlytics SpellFinder and WordFinder spell checker and

report - GALAXY has the editing and formatting power to do the job.

* Work in up to ten windows on screen at once. Size, overlap,
or zoom any window to full screen with the mouse or a

your own formats and use them again easily.

* Cut, copy and paste text from one document to another.

* Context sensitive help.

* Edit files as large as 8 megabytes using EMS memory or hard

* Proportional spacing and microjustification.

GALAXY handles any command in only a keystroke or two, quickly and
effortlessly. You're free to concentrate on the real job at hand...
Your writing.

Printing the User's Manual
The GALAXY shareware evaluation copy comes with a 104 page User's
Manual which you can view on screen or print.

To view or print the manual, type 'GO' at the DOS prompt and follow the
instructions on screen. To print the User's Manual, you'll need to
have 107 pages of paper available for your printer.

Using the INSTALL program
The INSTALL program configures GALAXY for use on your system. If you
are installing GALAXY from a diskette or subdirectory to a new location
on your computer (either diskette or hard disk), INSTALL will copy the
GALAXY files for you.

If the GALAXY files listed above have already been copied to your
computer, you still need to run INSTALL to configure GALAXY to work with
your printer.

To run the INSTALL program, type 'INSTALL' at the DOS prompt and follow
the instructions on screen.

Starting GALAXY
After you have run INSTALL, you can start GALAXY by typing
'GALAXY' at the DOS prompt.

Setting screen size and monochrome mode
Some video adaptors do not report screen size properly. If the screen
appears to be drawn improperly (the status line is not visible at the
bottom of the screen, or dialog boxes are not centered on the screen),
add the following line to your AUTOEXEC.BAT file:


You can enter a different value for the number of columns or rows if
your screen size is not the standard 80 columns by 25 rows.

If you are using a monochrome display with a color adaptor, GALAXY's
screen colors may not be right for you. You can add the following line
to your AUTOEXEC.BAT file:


This will force GALAXY into monochrome mode regardless of your video

Using Gal2To3.Exe to convert old GALAXY files
This utility will make it easier to reformat old GALAXY files in the
new GALAXY. Just type in "Gal2To3.Exe " followed by the complete name
of the file you wish to convert. Press and the new file will
be created in the current directory. It does the following
conversions to improve the files 3.0ishness:
-Removes carriage returns at the end of each line.
-Removes leading spaces from paragraphs.
-Adds carriage return to end of each paragraph.
-Removes embedded formatting sequences.

Getting Help
If you have any problems installing GALAXY, try the following steps:

1. Make sure you have all the files listed above. At the
DOS prompt, type 'DIR' and press ENTER. You should see a
directory listing that shows all of the above files.

2. Print the User's Manual by typing 'GO' at the DOS prompt.
Read Chapter 1, Getting Started. Try the INSTALL program
again, following the instructions in the manual.

3. Give us a call at (206) 385-1133, and we'll help you install
the program.
