Colors are no longer set in the install program. Colors can now be set up
in the default menu, each option has its own color number list and displays
the current value. This will make color selection even easier. Remember
to save the defaults to keep the colors set for your next program use.
Printing is now easier, allowing you to have multiple printers attached,
and to simply switch from one to another, just change the device. Now when
you install the new Galaxy Pro-Lite, the installation program will ask you
for how many printers to install 1-3, then assign a PRD file for each
device. If you have more than one printer attached to your computer, for
example you have an HP(tm) laser printer connected to LPT-1, you would
select PRD #16 for LPT-1, and you have an Epson(tm) attached to LPT-2,
select PRD #11 to device LPT-2. The PRD information will be saved in
Galaxy Pro-Lite's INI file.

attributes will be changed in the new print code menu, by either selecting

attribute is assigned to which keys. Now select Load the current PRD and
it's device will be listed in the open PRD box, press enter or type in
another PRD filename you wish to edit. A sub menu will pop up with the
keys listed, ALT-B through ALT-F8, and the current value assigned to the
key, Bold, Condensed, etc. using the arrow keys, select the attribute you
wish to change. You can also overwrite the current attribute name. The
next step is to enter the print codes for that attribute. You will start

condensed, elongated, and font changes, anything your printer is capable of
accomplishing. When finished press save. Galaxy Pro-Lite will write the
new PRD with the current name.
