Re: Xywrit.ico

Gregory Braun has a freeware Windows program called Icon Extractor that might be useful to someone wanting to design their own XyWrite icon. Icon Extractor allows you to . . . uh . . . extract icon images from various types of files and save them to the Windows clipboard. It won't allow you to edit them (use a graphics program for that), but at least if there's an icon CLOSE to what you want, you can extract that an then manipulate it--i.e., it's easier than recreating it from scratch.

Version 3.4 (at the top of the page) is the newest version and is shareware for $25; version 1.3 (at
