Macro Programs / Wordstar 6 - How Create Macros for Function Key?
« Last post by sojourner on November 15, 2015, 03:06:57 AM »
I've been using Wordstar 6 for DOS for a long, long time. So long I've forgotten how to
do (or fix) things I used to know. I used to have a series of keystrokes that would be
executed when I pressed the F8 function key. Now, for some reason, it no longer works and
I can't remember how to program (or reprogram) a function key macro. (I know how to
create and use ESC #key macros, but I need this one to be on a function key.)

Any help will be appreciated.

I am trying to access and rework some old narrative & archival research work done before retirement. It would be VERY useful to get a copy of ProTem's Notebook version 4.x, with all disks and user manual, if anyone has a copy for sale.

-Thanks in Advance, Bill (Phoenix, AZ USA)

Hi Valin,

You can choose to be notified of any topic updates by clicking the Notify button above the topic.

The query was more about after you receive an update notification you need to click a link in the message to take you to the topic to read the update. There is a way to allow you to read the update in the message you get sent, and to add your own comments by replying to the email rather than by visiting the forum to write your own comments.

Thanks, that's OK.  I am using the listen option now.  (and I also figured out the precious stone question - at first all I could think of was star sapphire and star ruby)  I have joined the yahoo group too now, though I prefer this sort of forum where it's easier to see all the topics, etc.

Thanks, Mike.  I didn't know that!  OK then, I'll get someone to help me with that.  (Looking forward to it.)  I think your program would be really beneficial to to those doing medical transcription, as its' paid by the line.

Hello Val,

You can uninstall the 64-bit version ad replace it with the 32-bit version using the original installation DVD. The DVD contains both editions. There are many reasons for not using the 64-bit version of Microsoft Office, not limited to the WordStar Emulator!

If I can modify the program to support both Word 32- and 64-bit I will announce that in the news section and on the main Web site.

Hi Val,

The Yahoo Group is more active than these forums these days.

You can download the trial version of the WordStar Emulator to test it out. To install the emulator select your version of Word from the pages listed on the Installation & Options page. If you like the program you can buy the full version - simply replace the trial program with the full version to gain all the features.
