INSTRUCTIONS FOR FEBRUARY 1991 DISK OF THE MONTH


This disk contains applications found in the February 1991 issue of
WordPerfect, the Magazine. The name of the article from which each
application is derived is mentioned the end of the application instructions.

NOTE: The following macros (files with the extension .WPM) must be copied
into the directory where your other macro files are kept. WARNING! If you
already have macros with the same name, you must rename the macros found on
this disk before they are copied onto your hard drive or your original
macros will be overwritten. Some of these files are styles (files with the
extension .STY). For 5.1, copy the style files into the directory specified
in Setup (Shift-F1), (6) Location of Files, (5) Style Files. For 5.0, copy
the styles files into your List Files (F5) directory. All other document
files should be copied to your List Files (F5) directory.

Included on this disk are the following files that work for 5.0 and 5.1
where specified:

BOXP.WPM (5.1 macro) - This macro automatically puts a box around an
existing paragraph. This is done by using a one-cell table. When you
edit the text in the table, the height of the cell automatically
increases or decreases to accommodate new or deleted text. To use this
macro, move the cursor anywhere within the paragraph that you want
boxed. Next, press Macro (Alt-F10), type boxp and press (Enter). The
paragraph becomes boxed. If you want to edit the box, move the cursor
into the box (single-cell table), press Columns/Table (Alt-F7) and use
one or more of the Table commands to change the width, position, line
style, shading, text alignment or any other feature of the box. (See
"All Boxed In," February '91 p19.)

ALTL.WPM (5.1/5.0 macro) - This macro automates locking and saving a

attributes, edit the macro by pressing Macro Define (Ctrl-F10), typing
word and pressing (Enter). In 5.1, press (2) Edit. In 5.0, press (2)
Edit, (2) Action. After making the desired changes, press Exit (F7)

(Enter). In 5.1, press (2) Edit. In 5.0, press (2) Edit, (2) Action.

in 5.0. To invoke the macro, place the cursor on the first letter of
