This software is independently developed. IBM Corporation is not responsible in any way for and does not warrant the operation of this software. Debug Macro File You can use Debug to identify run-time errors in a macro. These errors occur when you play the macro, even though the macro saved properly. You can also display variables and modify their values. To debug a macro file 1. Choose Tools Macros. 2. Choose Edit. 3. Select the macro file you want to debug and choose OK. Ami Pro displays the macro file. 4. Choose Tools Macros. 5. Choose Debug. The Debug dialog box displays and remains on the screen so you can continue to check the macro. To play the macro Choose Run/Continue. If a run-time error is encountered, Ami Pro displays an error message and pauses the macro. Choose the desired command button to resume checking the macro. To check each step in the macro Choose Single Step to play the macro and pause at every step. Choose Step Through to play the macro but not pause at any steps that are part of another function. Choose the desired command button to resume checking the macro. To stop playing the macro Choose Abort or Interrupt. These buttons replace the Select Macro button while Ami Pro plays the macro. The macro file remains in the window so you can continue debugging it. To debug another macro Make the desired macro file the active window and choose Select Macro. Ami Pro changes the macro file name in the Debug dialog box. You can now specify whether you want to play the macro or check each step in the macro. To display variables and modify their values If the Debug dialog box is open, you can display a list of macro variables and their values. You can modify the values and then continue the macro with the new values. 1. Choose Variables in the Debug dialog box. The Variables dialog box displays and remains on the screen so you can continue to display variables and modify their values. 2. Select the desired variable. 3. Type the New Value you want to use. 4. Choose Update if you want to assign a new value to the variable. 5. Choose the desired command button in the Debug dialog box to play the macro. 6. Choose Close to close the Variables dialog box when you no longer need to display the variables. Footnotes Files with footnotes in tables will preserve the footnote text inside the table, but the footnote references will be lost. Glossary Record You can modify a glossary record by opening the glossary data file and editing the text. You can also modify the ID name for a glossary record. To modify a glossary record 1. Choose File Open. 2. Specify the name of the glossary data file and choose OK. 3. Insert, delete, or edit the text or ID name for a glossary record. 4. Choose File Save to save the changes. Inserting a Spreadsheet or Database File If you insert a spreadsheet or database file with the insertion point in main document text, Ami Pro imports the data as a table, starting at the location of the insertion point. The table contains the correct number of columns and rows for the portion of the file you are importing. If you insert a spreadsheet or database file with the insertion point in a table, Ami Pro creates a table in the current cell, which may make the data difficult to read. If you insert a spreadsheet or database file with the insertion point in a frame, Ami Pro creates a table with the correct number of columns and rows and places the data into the appropriate cells. If you insert data into an empty selected frame, Ami Pro creates a table in the frame. The table fits in the frame and contains correct number of columns and rows for the portion of the file you are importing. If you place the insertion point inside a frame that contains text, Ami Pro imports the data as a table, starting at the location of the insertion point. The frame must be large enough to accommodate the data you are importing. Inserting a Word Processing File If you insert a word processing file with the insertion point in main document text, Ami Pro imports the data starting at the location of the insertion point. If you insert a word processing file with the insertion point in a frame, Ami Pro imports the data into the frame starting at the location of the insertion point. If you insert a word processing file with the insertion point in a table, Ami Pro inserts the information into the current cell. If the pages do not flow as you anticipate (for example, if you have one line on a page), you can do the following to correct the page flow: v Deselect Keep With Previous paragraph in the Modify Style dialog box under Breaks. v Select Allow page/column break within in the Modify Style dialog box under Breaks. v Deselect Widow/Orphan control in the User Setup dialog box under Options. v Increase the column width in the Column/Row Size dialog box. Line Numbering You can number all lines of the pages in a document including blank lines, or number only those lines that contain text. The line numbers appear in the left margin of every page in the document. This makes it easy to find and refer to information in translated or legal documents. To guarantee that the line numbers align properly with the text in a document, you should specify the same font and line spacing for all the paragraph styles used in the main document text. In addition, you should set the paragraph spacing above and below options to zero for all paragraph styles used in the main document text. To number lines 1. Choose Page Line Numbering. 2. Select Number all lines or Number text lines as the desired type of numbering. 3. Select the desired Options. 4. Select the paragraph style on which you want the line numbering based. You should base the line numbering on the paragraph style you use for the majority of the main document text. If you select Number all lines, Ami Pro uses the font specified for the paragraph style you select. If you select Number text lines, Ami Pro numbers uses the font specified for Body Text. Every line Numbers every line in the document. Every other line Numbers one line, then skips the next line. Every fifth line Numbers every fifth line starting with line 5. Every nth lines Numbers every line that is a multiple of the number you specify. Reset each page Counts the first line on each page as line number 1. 5. Choose OK. Merge Data File To use File Merge to create a merge data file You can use File Merge if you want to specify your own merge field names and delimiters. 1. Choose File Merge. Ami Pro displays the Welcome to Merge dialog box. 2. Select Option 1 and choose OK. Ami Pro displays the Select Merge Data File dialog box. 3. Choose New. Ami Pro displays the Name Merge Data File dialog box. 4. Specify the desired name for the merge data file and choose OK. Ami Pro opens the document and displays the Create Data File dialog box. 5. Specify the merge field names. 6. Choose OK when you finish specifying all the merge field names and their order. Ami Pro displays the Data File dialog box so you can create the merge data. To assign a merge data file if you just closed that data file If you just created or modified a data file, Ami Pro automatically displays the Welcome to Merge dialog box. 1. Select Option 2 and choose OK. Ami Pro displays a message. Choose No. Ami Pro displays the Open dialog box. 2. Choose New. 3. Select the style sheet you want to use for the merge document. 4. Choose OK. To merge Ami Pro for Windows with Ami Pro for OS/2 merge data files Ami Pro for Windows Release 3.0 cannot merge with Ami Pro for OS/2 merge data files that contain empty fields. However, Ami Pro for Windows will merge with OS/2 merge data files that do not contain empty fields. Mouse Shortcuts Using the Right Button You can use the right mouse button to display the Modify Style and Modify Page Layout dialog boxes. To display the Modify Style dialog box Click the right mouse button when the mouse pointer is over text to move the insertion point and display the Modify Style dialog box. To display the Modify Page Layout dialog box Click the right mouse button when the mouse pointer is in the right or left margin area to display the Modify Page Layout dialog box. Numeric Separator You can modify the numeric separator by modifying the decimal symbol specified in the paragraph style. To modify the numeric separator 1. Choose Style Modify Style. Mouse Click the right mouse button when the mouse pointer is over text to move the insertion point and display the Modify Style dialog box. 2. Choose Table. 3. Select a paragraph style you use for text that contains numeric tabs. 4. Specify the desired Decimal symbol. 5. Choose OK. Ami Pro uses the Decimal symbol as the numeric separator whenever you create a numeric tab in text using that paragraph style. Paragraph Style Table Format To modify paragraph style table format When you create a table, Ami Pro creates a Table Text paragraph style and assigns that paragraph style to all table cells. If you type numbers in tables, you can specify how the numbers appear by modifying the table format for the Table Text paragraph style. If you assign other paragraph styles to numbers in tables, you can specify the table format for those paragraph styles also. Ami Pro also uses the table format whenever you create a numeric tab. You can specify the numeric separator by modifying the decimal symbol for each paragraph style. If you want to use different types of numeric formats in the same document, you can specify each format in a separate paragraph style and then assign the desired paragraph style to the appropriate text. Printing in the Background You can perform Ami Pro functions and commands while documents print if you use File Print and print in the background. Ami Pro creates a temporary file in your temporary directory each time you print a document. The temporary file requires as much disk space as the original document. Foreground editing tasks may be slower if you print in the background. To print in the background 1. Choose Tools User Setup. 2. Choose Options. 3. Select Print in background. 4. Choose OK. REXX Command File You can execute a previously created REXX command file from within Ami Pro. To play a REXX command file 1. Choose Tools Macros. 2. Choose Play REXX File. 3. Specify the name of the file you want to execute. All REXX files must have a .CMD extension for Ami Pro to recognize them.

Corrections to the Documentation Ami Pro User's Guide On page 1, under "System requirements," the second bulleted paragraph should indicate "A minimum of 8MB of RAM (16MB recommended)." On page 1, under "System requirements," the third bulleted paragraphs should indicate "A minimum of 8MB of available hard disk space. Depending upon the options you choose to install, you may need up to 17MB of available hard disk space." On page 4, under "To start Ami Pro from the OS/2 Command Prompt," the list of commands should include the following commands: amipro /a Starts Ami Pro without running autoexec.smm. amipro /e Starts Ami Pro and minimizes it. amipro /i=pathname ami*.ini Starts Ami Pro using the settings stored in ami*.ini, found in the specified pathname. amipro /l Starts Ami Pro without displaying the splash screen. amipro /n=iconset.smi Starts Ami Pro and selects the SmartIcons set iconset.smi. On page 17, the Help under the picture of an Ami Pro document should indicate "For additional information, refer to 'Assigning paragraph styles' in this chapter, 'Understanding frames' and 'Placing a picture in a document' in Chapter 16, and 'Understanding tables' in Chapter 17." On page 19, the second paragraph under "Cancel" should appear under "Save As." On page 22, under "To assign a paragraph style using fast format," the first step should be an introduction paragraph. The second step becomes step 1: "Place the insertion point in a paragraph that has the desired paragraph style formatting." On page 24, under "To save an untitled document," the Save As dialog box should include a Files list box. The Files list box allows you to see if the file already exists. This makes it easier to use incremental file names (for example, test1, test2, test3). On page 33, under "Using preview," the following bullet paragraphs should be deleted: v Print the document. v View the document information. v Copy selected text to the Clipboard and paste it into another open document. v Use Go To and Find & Replace to find information. v Use any of the commands under the View menu. v Move to the next or previous power field and display power fields. On page 55, under "System time," the Help should indicate "The way the system time appears is determined by the time format specified in Country in the OS/2 System Setup folder. For information, refer to 'Changing date and time' in the OS/2 Master Help Index." On page 62, under step 3, the last paragraph on the page should indicate "If you want to change back to the previous color, press CTRL+ click the mouse button anywhere in the color bar or box." This paragraph should be moved to just before step 3. On page 69, the paragraph under "Overstrike" should indicate "The character you type in the text box appears on top of selected text." The Help paragraph about using a character from the current character set should be deleted. You cannot use ALT+ another key in a dialog box to insert a special character from the current character set. On page 71, the Help at the top of the page should indicate "If you do not select any text, Ami Pro displays the Fast Format dialog box. Select Only text font and attributes and choose OK." On pages 77, 79, 80, 81, 82, 84, 86, 87, 92, 94, and 95, the Mouse shortcut is incomplete. For information, refer to Mouse Shortcuts Using the Right Button section in this document.

On page 118, under "To remove an inserted page layout," step 1 should indicate "Place the insertion point anywhere in the text using the inserted page layout." Placing the insertion point on the page layout mark to delete the inserted page layout does not delete it. On page 119, under "To insert a manual page or column break," the third paragraph in step 3 should indicate "If you inserted a column break, Ami Pro places a column break mark at the location of the insertion point. Ami Pro moves any text beyond the location of the insertion point to the next column." On page 126, under "Displaying and hiding rulers," a sentence that indicates "You can display the horizontal and vertical rulers only in Layout mode" should be added to the end of the paragraph.

On pages 165, 167, and 168, the screen capture of the User Setup dialog box should not contain the "Disable warning messages" option. On page 166, under "Auto timed save," all references to ".TIM file" should be replaced with ".~TS file." On page 166, under "Auto timed save," the Caution should indicate "Ami Pro does not implement auto timed save when you use Image Processing or Equations or when you are in a document that is read-only." On page 168, under "To set help message options," the documentation for the "Disable warning messages" option should be deleted. Ami Pro does not display a warning message when you delete text that contains notes, page breaks, footnotes, page tables, floating headers or footers, inserted page layouts, anchored frames, DDE links, or power fields. On page 168, the screen capture of the User Setup dialog box should not contain the "Display initials in text" option. On page 169, the "Display initials in text" paragraph should be deleted.

On page 193, under "Understanding outline numbering," the Note should be deleted. Paragraph style names are case-sensitive. For example, Ami Pro would not recognize Heading and heading as equivalent paragraph style names. On page 194, under "To use I, A, 1, i, a," the documentation fails to mention that you should not use Cumulative numbering when using this quick numbering scheme. If you use Cumulative numbering with this quick numbering scheme, Ami Pro does not number the outline paragraph styles correctly. On page 196, under "To use Cumulative numbering," the documentation fails to mention that you should not use the I, A, 1, i, a quick numbering scheme with Cumulative numbering. If you use Cumulative numbering with this quick numbering scheme, Ami Pro does not number the outline paragraph styles correctly.

On page 210, the Example of editing the user dictionary should be deleted. The user dictionary is not case sensitive; therefore, the user dictionary does not recognize Berger and BERGER as separate entries. On page 212, under the "Check from beginning of document" option, the paragraph indicating "If the insertion point is in any text stream other than main document text, Ami Pro deselects and dims this option" should be deleted. On page 212, under the "Include other text streams" option, the paragraph indicating "If the insertion point is in any text stream other than main document text, Ami Pro selects and dims this option" should be deleted. On page 213, under "To correct an error," the documentation should indicate "Choose Cancel to exit the Grammar Checker dialog box.

On page 217, under "Save As," a sentence that indicates "The changes you specify take effect only after you exit and re-enter the Grammar Check dialog box" should be added to the end of the second paragraph. On page 219, in Chapter 14, Printing a Document, the documentation fails to include printing in the background. For information, see the Printing in the Background section in this document. On page 230, under "To type and print an address on an envelope," the screen capture of the Recipient's Address dialog box should be deleted. The dialog box does not display at this time. On page 235, under "Using a picture," the fourth paragraph should indicate "A repeating frame displays on all pages in the document even if you insert one or more new page layouts. However, if you insert a new page layout, the picture in a repeating frame does not display in the frame in the new page layout. You can import the picture again or import a different picture in the repeating frame for the new page layout. You can also delete the frame in the new page layout without deleting the frame in the previous page layout." On page 235, at the end of "Using a picture," the documentation should include a paragraph that indicates "If you create a frame in the header or footer, you cannot use the Wrap around option in the Modify Frame Layout dialog box to wrap text beside the frame. If you want text to wrap beside the frame, you can use Text Indention to indent the text, or you can display the Modify Style dialog box, choose Alignment, and modify the indention of the paragraph style." The documentation should include a Help paragraph that indicates "For information, see 'Applying an indention' in Chapter 5 and 'To modify paragraph style indentions' in Chapter 6." On page 243, under "To modify a floating header or footer," the OK command button in the screen capture of the Go To dialog box should be a Go To CTRL+H command button. On page 244, under "To modify a floating header or footer," step 3 should indicate "Choose Go To CTRL+H." On page 244, under "To remove a floating header or footer," the OK command button in the screen capture of the Go To dialog box should be a Go To CTRL+H command button.

However, if you insert a new page layout, the contents in a repeating frame do not display in the frame in the new page layout. You can re-enter the contents or create new contents in the repeating frame for the new page layout. You can also delete the frame in the new page layout without deleting the frame in the previous page layout." On page 283, under "Frame 6," the paragraph should include the sentence "The top margin of the frame is set to .39 inches." On page 283, under "Frame 7," the last sentence of the paragraph should indicate "The frame layout is set to no wrap around and no lines (so the title displays as if it were part of the box)." On page 297, under "To use editing Options," the first sentence in the first Help paragraph should be deleted. You can select Honor protection before protecting the desired cells. On page 302, under "To create an equation in a table," the SmartIcon to access Equations did not ship with Ami Pro for OS/2 release 3.0. To access Equations, choose Tools Equations. On page 309, under "To move or copy a table," the first Help should indicate "For information, refer to 'Editing a frame' in Chapter 16."

On page 318, under "To disconnect cells," the paragraph should indicate "Place the insertion point in the connected cell and choose Table Disconnect. The former cell reappears without any contents or cell formatting you previously had in that cell." On page 319, under "To protect cells," the second paragraph under step 2 should be replaced with a Help paragraph that indicates "To protect cells, you must also select Honor protection in the Modify Table Layout dialog box and deselect Disable table cell protection in the Document Information dialog box. For information, refer to 'To specify the table layout' in this chapter and 'To use document information' in Chapter 21." Steps 3 - 5 should be deleted. On page 324, under "Using a page break in a table," step 1 for "To remove a page break" should indicate "Place the insertion point in any cell in the row immediately above the page break." You cannot remove a page break with the insertion point in a row immediately below the page break. On page 334, the OK command button in the screen capture of the Go To dialog box should be a Go To CTRL+H command button. On page 334, the first sidenote that indicates " Ami Pro dims any item that is not available" should be deleted. Ami Pro does not dim items that are not available. On page 334, under "Footnote Mark," the documentation should indicate "Selects the next footnote reference number in the document. Before you type text, move the insertion point so that the footnote mark is not highlighted." On page 335, the Go To options should include "Note When you select Note in the list box, Ami Pro places the insertion point at the location of the note mark. Double-click the note mark to display the note." On page 335, step 2 should indicate "Choose Go To CTRL+H." On page 335, under step 2, the Help paragraph should be deleted. When using Go To, Ami Pro does not display a message if the insertion point is on the last occurrence of the item you selected. On page 335, under "Using find & replace," the last paragraph on the page should indicate "If you are in Draft Mode when you select Find & Replace, Ami Pro only searches the main document text."
