Re: a few XyWrite kindergarten questions

Thanks, Tom. I've tried that but I am not exactly sure why the xwset.dfl is
needed to change the macros. In other words, what do I need to *change* in
the xwset.dfl file in order to permit macro editing?

Remember, I'm in kindergarten.

should do this:

and make changes to the copy.
> Check your changes by saving the tmp file and LOADing it (Load xyset.tmp
on the command line).

(overwriting the contents, of course).
