Subject: DEGAELITE, LOAD A NEW FONT?
Date: Sun Jul 30 09:33:50 1989


HELLO AGAIN, I AM FILLED WITH QUESTIONS.  I HAVE CREATED A NEW
FONT - RUSSIAN, FOR MY 1040ST USING THE DEGAELITE FONT EDITOR
PROGRAM.  I HAD NO TROUBLE CREATING AND SAVING THE NEW FONT
BUT I CANNOT SEEM TO LOAD THE NEW FONT TO HAVE IT SHOW UP ON 
THE SCREEEN WHEN I STRIKE THE KEYS.  THE OLD ORIGINALLY ENGLISH
FONT SHOWS UP.  CAN YOU TELL ME HOW TO LOAD A NEW FONT?   I
TRIED SEVERAL TIMES, SEARCHING FOR A WAY TO LOAD IT, AND I AM 
STILL UNSUCCESSFUL.  THANKS AGAIN.

THE FIRST THING IS TO MAKE SURE YOU ARE IN THE SAME RESOLUTION
AS THE PIC YOU ARE TRING TO LOAD.P1 PIC IS LOW RES,P2 PIC IS
MED RES AND P3 PIC IS HIGH RES. YOU WILL FIND THESE AS A 
EXTENDER AT THE END OF THE FILE NAME. EXAMPLE IS ATARI.P2
THE P2 MEANS THIS IS A MED RES PIC. TO LOAD THIS YOU HAVE TO BOOT
DEGAS UP IN MED RES IF YOU BOOT UP IN LOW RES YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO 
LOAD THIS PIC. THE NEXT THING AFTER YOU BOOT DEGAS IS TO CLICK
ON LOAD PIC. YOU WILL NEXT SEE A DIRECTORY OF PICTURES TO LOAD
YOU CAN HAVE P1,P2 AND P3 PIC ON THE SAME DISK BUT ONLY THE 
PICTURES IN THE SAME RES. THAT YOU ARE IN WILL SHOW UP IN THE
DIRECTORY.YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO CLICK ON THE PIC. YOU WANT YOU LOAD
AND HAVE IT LOAD. IF YOU ARE STILL HAVING PROBLEMS LEAVE ME
EMAIL AND LET ME KNOW.
