Description

Another new book dedicated to the prestigious LocoScript word processor for the PCW 8256 and PCW 8512 range. It perfectly details how to create perfect letters, reports, articles, emails, invoices and labels without having to spend hours trying to figure out how to do them.

It informs, among others, the correction of writing errors or spelling errors; establish new margins and tabs, the justification if we prefer from a margin to the right, move paragraphs or pages from one place to another. Printing pica, elite or double size, with single or double line spacing, page numbering automatically. How to show the name of our company or the title of a book or report on each page after the first page. Renumber or renumber paragraphs that have already been written or indent them. Hiding files so that no one else can see them using your machine, as well as recovering lost files from Limbo.

A very technical book that helps both the professional and the inexperienced in the use of LocoScript. Recommended for initiation to LocoScript and its many utilities.
