jINTRODUCTION

This brief documentation is designed to accompany the Pop Perfect
4.2U demonstration disk and isn't intended to fully document Pop
Perfect 4.2 and its features.

When you register Pop Perfect 4.2 you will receive:

The latest version of Pop Perfect 4.2R (tm) (which eliminates
the irritating and guiltinspiring registration
messages) E

Documentation of all Pop Perfect 4.2 features E

Plus other benefits (including a low cost upgrade to Pop
Perfect 5.0 when available).

For further information, refer to the section on registration
later in this documentation.

Program Purpose

WordPerfect 4.2 is a program of nearly unequalled word processing
power. Unfortunately, its user interface (or lack thereof) has
prevented many users from fully and efficiently utilizing this
power. The considerable number of WordPerfect instruction guides
in bookstores is adequate testimony to this sad reality.

QCR Associates, however, believes that users should not be forced
into memorizing arcane function key commands, or be required to
interrupt their thoughts with frequent trips to the user manual,
or compelled to wade through the seas of alphabet mystery that
can be created as a result of the program's alt key macro
feature.

We have thus developed Pop Perfect 4.2, a memory resident system
which adds popup mouse and/or keyboard menus to WordPerfect 4.2;
placing nearly all commands within easy reach and even adding
features WordPerfect forgot, such as envelope printing, a popup
calculator, quick manipulation of text blocks, capturing and
displaying text screens, automatic scrolling of text, etc.

At $24.95, Pop Perfect 4.2R costs about the same as any of the
myriad of instruction books on the market. Yet instead of just
showing you how to perform the command as do the books, Pop
Perfect 4.2 actually does the work for you! What's more, it
won't disturb your existing alt key macros so that you can
continue using WordPerfect for customized features as you have
before. Pop Perfect 4.2 should peacefully coexist with other
memory resident programs that you may have installed and can be
easily uninstalled from within WordPerfect should it be required.

jNote that Pop Perfect 4.2 is much more than a simple mouse menu
since it also allows for easy keyboard selection from the menus
by moving the cursor or selecting the first alphanumeric character of the command.

Who should use Pop Perfect 4.2

Those who need an easy word processing program and have
given up on WordPerfect as being too complex and confusing.
Those who want their secretaries to "clean up" their rough
drafts, and need a program compatible with the WordPerfect
standard of their company, but don't want to memorize all
of the complex WordPerfect commands.

Those who use several different programs and are tired of
looking up and/or entering illegal WordPerfect commands.

Those who want to take advantage of WordPerfect features
that they have never learned or have forgotten.

Those who are tired of juggling their "alt key" macros and
want to take an easy, menu driven approach.

Those who want features not available in WordPerfect, such
as a popup calculator that inserts results into the text,
and the ability to capture and display screens from any
program.

Those who would like mouse support for editing, but would
also like the convenience of access to the same menu driven
environment from the keyboard.



About this Version

This version of Pop Perfect, 4.2U, is intended as a fullfeatured
demonstration of Pop Perfect and is distributed as shareware.
Anyone may legally obtain an evaluation copy of the program from
a friend or computer club. After you have had a chance to use
and evaluate the program in your own environment, you are trusted
to either forward a payment to QCR Associates or to discontinue
use of the program.









jINSTALLATION

First, be sure to make a backup of the Pop Perfect 4.2U files.

Color Systems

Hard Disk systems

Copy everything but the DKEY.ARC files to the subdirectory in
which WordPerfect resides.

Run the batch file popperc.bat which will load the color version
of Pop Perfect 4.2U into memory.

Floppy Disk systems

Copy the *.scr files onto the system disk that will reside in
drive A. Everything else can go onto a separate disk. Load Pop
Perfect 4.2U into memory by running the popperc.bat file,


Both Systems

Depending upon your keyboard, if you so desire you may need to
redefine your keypad numbers to use them in selecting Pop Perfect
4.2 menu choices which begin with numbers. DKEY a shareware
program by Digital Mechanics, or most other macro programs can
accomplish this. This is discussed below under PROBLEMS
Enhanced Keyboards.

Enter WordPerfect as usual.


Mono Systems

Hard Disk systems

Copy everything but the DKEY.ARC files to the subdirectory in
which WordPerfect resides.

Run the batch file popperm.bat which will load the mono version
of Pop Perfect 4.2U into memory.

Floppy Disk systems

Copy the *.scr files onto the system disk that will reside in
drive A. Everything else can go onto a separate disk. Load Pop
Perfect 4.2U into memory by running the popperm.bat file,

Both Systems

Depending upon your keyboard, if you so desire you may need to
redefine your keypad numbers to use them in selecting Pop Perfect
4.2 menu choices which begin with numbers. DKEY a shareware
program by Digital Mechanics, or most other macro programs can
accomplish this. This is discussed below under PROBLEMS
Enhanced Keyboards.

Enter WordPerfect as usual.


USE

Invoke Pop Perfect 4.2 with the ^\ command (pressing CTRL and
backslash keys simultaneously). If you have a mouse installed,
clicking the left and right buttons will also invoke Pop Perfect
4.2. [AFTER READING AND CLEARING THE REGISTRATION MESSAGE WITH
EITHER THE ESC OR ENTER KEY] This will bring up the menu of
initial alternatives. Notice that each selection has a "preview
menu" box which pops up on the top right of the menu. This
preview box lets you see the next level of menus for each choice.
You can scroll through any of the menus with the cursor key.
Choices are selected by either typing the first letter of the
choice or by moving the "light bar" with the cursor to the
desired selection and pressing enter. If you have a mouse
installed, you can also select the menu choice by positioning the
light bar with the mouse and pressing the left mouse button.

Because each of the menu choices must begin with a unique
character, you will notice that we have been somewhat creative
(though nonetheless logical) in naming some of the choices.
Wherever possible, we have attempted to use letters for the
selection. In some cases, however, this was not possible and we
were forced to resort to numbers. Nevertheless CHOICES CAN
ALWAYS BE SELECTED BY THEIR FIRST ALPHANUMERIC CHARACTER. Note
that some text on the menus is descriptive and is not a menu
choice. This is always denoted by capitalized text.

Also note that Pop Perfect 4.2 uses "smart" menus that remember
your last selection. It thus becomes easy to repeat commands by
simply pressing the enter key an appropriate number of times from
the main menu.








j

BlFtExamples

[4.2U (unregistered) users, after pressing the menu (^\ key),
must clear the "request for registration" message with the
esc key before the main menu pops up]

1. Change margins to 1.5" pica = ^\TM2 [WHERE ^\ =CTRL BACKSLASH]

T = TEXT FORMAT MENU
M = MARGINS
2 = 1.5" PICA


2. Add a popup comment to text = ^\FIA

F = FILES/WINDOW
I = INFORMATION/COMMENTS
A = ADD


3. Popup the calculator = ^\M2C

M = MORE
2 = MATH
C = CALCULATOR


4. Switch windows = ^\FO

F = FILES/WINDOW
O = OTHER


Speedkeys

Pop Perfect 4.2 employs various speedkeys which duplicate from
the keyboard some of its menu functions directly. They are as
follows (where ^ stands for the CTRL key):

^A Automatically scrolls down text on the screen

ALT B Defines block of text to edit and calls edit menu.
Note that this is the only case where Pop Perfect
may interfere with the access to your existing
alt key macro. If you have an existing ALT B
macro and want to access it, simply rename it.

^J Jumps to page break

^L Transposes two letters

^X Capitalize first letter of word

^Y Delete line

r
PROBLEMS


Errant Keystrokes

Occasionally, Pop Perfect 4.2 may become confused during its
execution by errant keystrokes that either it or WordPerfect was
not expecting. Simply press CTRLBREAK and ENTER to clear the
offending keystrokes.


Enhanced Keyboards

If you have an enhanced 101 key keyboard, the keypad numbers may
not operate properly when used to select Pop Perfect menu choices
which begin with a number (the top row numbers will, however,
work properly). Note that the keypad numbers will continue to
work fine with WordPerfect and outside of Pop Perfect.

This shouldn't be a major crisis, but if your keyboard does have
this problem, and you would like to be able to select the few Pop
Perfect choices that begin with numbers from the keypad instead
of the top row, a macro program such as Smartkey or Superkey can
be used to correct the problem. Simply define the keypad numbers
as their top row counterparts.

Alternatively, I have included an excellent shareware macro
program called DKEY (tm) and the appropriate redefinition file
for this program which does the job and consumes only 3K of
memory. (DKEY is a shareware program developed by Digital
Mechanics 5347 Arlington Drive W. Hanover Park, IL 60103. The
author requests a recommended donation of $10 for this program.)

If you so choose to use this program, copy the dk.com, dkey.exe,
and wpwin files and popper.bat file into the appropriate subdirectory/drive. Load DKEY by running dkeypop.bat which will
invoke the program with the proper keypad redefinition file.
[Note that I have changed the default DKEY hotkey combination
from ^\ (which is the Pop Perfect menu key) to RSHIFT \. This is
irrelevant for this discussion however, since you shouldn't need
to use DKEY beyond running popper.bat.]

Note that this keyboard redefinition step should be performed
before Pop Perfect is loaded. The steps to load Pop Perfect 4.2
with this correction are therefore as follows:

1. Redefine keypad numbers [using keypop.bat or
most other macro programs as explained above.


2. Load Pop Perfect 4.2 using either popperc.bat
(color systems) or popperm.bat (mono)




rWordPerfect 4.1

While Pop Perfect 4.2 was designed for use with WordPerfect 4.2,
most menu choices will work properly with WordPerfect 4.1, as
long as the particular command was not changed or added in the
later version.
