Re: XyWrite in a big CRT monitor



Bill:
I was unable to find information referred to XyDos 4 text screen fonts
running in a Windows window in XyWeb and Annie's sites. Please outline
for me your procedure to change the screen font in a Windows 98
environment. The shortcut properties only give me access to a predefined
set of screen fonts.
Best regards,
Manuel
