CPM WordStar in Apple IIe – Formatting

June 1, 2018

Here’s another entry as I play with WordStar. I’m setting margins, bold, underline, etc and spacing. You can read my notes in the PDF printout below done via Virtual II. It’s funny as character formatting control commands show on the page but margin and justification do not. Probably cause they’re self evident. Although this is done in Virtual II, it played as nice on my real IIe and DuoDisk.

I never could get the characters per inch (CPI) work.

The control-O gets you the format screen.

WordStar and SpellStar – more CP/M Fun on Apple IIe CPM

May 7, 2017

I’m still intrigued by WordStar and SpellStar. So, I installed my MicroSoft SoftCard CP/M card. (March 28, 2017 post) Here I’m running it on my Apple //e using both drives of my DuoDisk. I did a short post last August when running on my Virtual ][ Emulator. ┬áSo, I created so floppies from downloaded images and used ADTPro from my MacBook Pro to my IIGS. The display is on the NightOwl. Also, some of my comments in the text are before I read a WordStar manual. Sometimes you just need to RTFM.
