>> However, there are problems in using it on my laptop, as I described in
my prior note <<
I didn't realize laptops map the keyboard differently from desktops.
I use my laptop as a second computer for trips and such. I was thinking of
using it as my primary machine--with a docking station, perhaps. But if it
can't handle XyWrite while a desktop can, I can upgrade to a fast new
desktop with Windows XP and use XyWrite there.
>> Question: when XyWrite appears on the screen, is it in DOS mode or is it
in a Windows window? Try changing it to the other mode [use
] and see what happens. <<
I tried it both ways. Yes, the fonts are only a problem in the
DOS/full-screen mode. They look okay in a Windows window.
But under Win 98, the fonts look okay in either mode. So again, the
question is what's different about Windows XP.
