The book, as is usual in those of the PCW's range, deals with the LocoScript word processor, but this time it does so by talking about the version for the Amstrad PCW 9512, which is somewhat unusual.
It includes the way to produce perfect documents, such as letters, articles, reports, theses and a long etc, without spending hours trying to figure out how to do it.
It picks up document preparation, like changing chapter titles or page numbers, increasing the number of lines on a page, setting new margins and tabs and without having to retype: correcting spelling or typos, change font size, justify or remove justification, change single line spacing to double.
It tells us about the use of LocoMail to match names and addresses of a mailing list in invoices or standard letters; or insert these from the keyboard. Using the dictionary with 78,000 words built into LocoSpell to check spelling and typing errors, offer a correctly spelled alternative, and count words. How to hide the files so that no one else can see them using your machine and how to recover lost files from Limbo.
A highly recommended and well-taught book for those new to LocoScript and a PCW 9512.
This book is a metal ringed type with soft colored cardboard covers and inner sheets of fine white paper and black and white printing.
