Lotus Mobile Screen Show Player (25/2/1998) Readme/What's new
Copyright 1998 Lotus Development Corporation All rights reserved. PLAYER.TXT is an excerpt from EXTRA.TXT Release Notes in the \EXTRA Directory on the SmartSuite CD-ROM This document describes the Lotus Mobile Screen Show Player on the SmartSuite for OS/2 Warp 4 CD-ROM in the \EXTRA directory. This is provided as a convenience for users but not supported by Lotus. For best viewing, Lotus recommends that you select a non-proportional font for your OS/2 Editor, such as Courier, Courier New, or System VIO. ============================= THE MOBILE SCREEN SHOW PLAYER ============================= The Mobile Screen Show Player (the Player) lets you run presentations on your computer even if Freelance Graphics is not installed. It also enables you to share presentations (.PRZ files) with others who don't have Freelance Graphics installed. You can: * Install just the Player on a PC. * Send a zipped version of the Player together with presentation files to others. The procedure for setting up the Player is covered below. Include these instructions if you send the zipped version to other users to view your presentation. NOTES: * Do not install the Player on an OS/2 system where Lotus SmartSuite for OS/2 products are already installed, because the set up required may alter the settings required for the installed Screen Show Player or the product Tours. If you have already installed SmartSuite and you do not have access to the Screen Show Player, reinstall Freelance Graphics, select Custom install, and then select the Mobile Screen Show Player component. After installation, shutdown and reboot the system, and check the Lotus Accessories folder for the Lotus Freelance Graphics Mobile Screen Show Player icon. * Installing or uninstalling Lotus SmartSuite 96 for OS/2 or Lotus SmartSuite for OS/2 Warp 4 may affect your setup for the Player. * To use the Player, a Warp 3 system must have at least FixPak 26 applied and a Warp 4 system must have FixPak 5 applied. A. Preliminary Setup -------------------- 1. Open an OS/2 command prompt window. 2. Open the CONFIG.SYS file on the OS/2 boot drive using the OS/2 System Editor. For example, type: E CONFIG.SYS 3. In the LIBPATH statement, add: .; (a period semi-colon string) if it does not already exist. (This adds the current directory to the OS/2 search order. See HELP LIBPATH in the "OS/2 Warp Command Reference" for more information about LIBPATH.) 4. Close and save the changes made to the CONFIG.SYS file. 5. Shutdown and restart the system. 6. Continue with the instructions for Installing the Player. B. To Install the Player ------------------------ Follow these instructions if you are constrained for disk space and don't want to install Freelance Graphics, but you want to run presentations on your PC. Make sure you have completed the Preliminary Setup described above. 1. Open an OS/2 window. 2. Create two directories: one for the files in the Player zipped image and one for the presentation files you want to view. For example, type: MD D:\PLAYER and press ENTER MD D:\PLAYER\WORK and press ENTER 3. Copy the .PLZ and .PRZ files you want to view to the PLAYER\WORK directory. 4. Change to the \PLAYER directory you created on the hard drive. 5. Copy LTPLAYER.EXE from the \EXTRA\PLAYER directory on the SmartSuite CD-ROM to the PLAYER directory you created on the hard drive. 6. Type: LTPLAYER and press ENTER to unzip the Player image. This requires approximately 4 MB of available disk space. 7. Type: START INITSHOW <driveid:\path to directory you created for the presentation files> and press ENTER. For example, type: START INITSHOW D:\PLAYER\WORK and press ENTER. This sets up two OS/2 registry entries for the Player, a Working directory and a Personal directory for temporary files. 8. Type: START ltmobr01 and press ENTER to launch the Player and view Freelance Graphics presentations. NOTE: You can delete the LTPLAYER.EXE and the Player .HLP files from the hard drive to free disk space once setup is complete. C. Optional Setup ----------------- To create a Screen Show Player program icon on your desktop: 1. Open the Templates folder in the OS/2 System folder. 2. Drag (using the right-mouse button) the Program icon onto the Desktop to create a new Program. 3. In the Program-Settings dialog box, type the complete path and file name for the Player. For example, type: D:\PLAYER\ltmobr01.exe 4. Click the Icon tab. 5. In the Title field, type: Lotus Screen Show Player. 6. Exit the dialog box and the icon should appear on your OS/2 desktop. 7. Double-click the icon to start the Player. To view and/or modify Player registry entries: * The INITSHOW setup program updates two registry entries for the Player. You can view and/or modify these particular OS/2 registry entries using the OS/2 Warp 4 registry editor. 1. In an OS/2 window, type: RegEdit2. 2. Once the editor is open, go to the registry key, HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Lotus\Components\Player\1.0, by clicking with left mouse button to expand each level. 3. Modify the two directory paths, following these criteria: * the directory paths must exist and be writeable. * Working Directory is where your presentation files reside and is the default location for the File-Open dialog box when launching the Player. * Personal Directory is where the Player writes temporary (TMP) work files. * You can specify different directories for the Working and Personal Directories as long as the paths exist and are writeable.

Update for AmiPro/2 3.0b (17/1/1995) Readme/What's new
8046: How to Obtain the Update Disk for Ami Pro 3.0B for OS/2 PRODUCT: Ami Pro 3.0b for OS/2 DATE: 17 January 1995 PROBLEM: How can I obtain and install the latest update files for Ami Pro 3.0b for OS/2? SOLUTION: *** HOW TO DETERMINE IF YOU CAN INSTALL THESE FILES *** THIS PATCH ONLY WORKS WITH AMI PRO 3.0B. To determine if you have 3.0B, perform the following steps: 1. Start Ami Pro 2. Choose Help \ About Ami Pro. 3. Press the " R " key on your keyboard. 4. Look at the bottom of the dialog box to determine the release number. You may install these files if the Release Number is 30.945 or higher. If the release number is prior to 30.945.0, the files contained in the PATCH1. EXE file will NOT work with the version of Ami Pro that is currently installed on your system. You must first obtain 3.0B by calling 1-800-872-3387. ******************************************************** HOW TO INSTALL THE PATCH FILES 1. Close Ami Pro if it is running. If Ami Pro is running on a network, make sure no users are currently using Ami Pro. 2. Create a temporary directory on your hard drive where you can place the file PATCH1.EXE (more detailed instructions below). For example, a. From an OS/2 Window type: CD\ to insure you are creating the directory off the root directory. b. Type: MD PATCH to create the temporary directory. 3. Copy the file PATCH1.EXE into the directory that you created. For example, a. With the update diskette in your diskette drive type A: (or B: as necessary) and press the <ENTER> key. b. Type: COPY PATCH1.EXE C:\PATCH (replace C:\ with the drive letter where you created the PATCH directory in step 2b above) and press the <ENTER> key. 4. Open a DOS window and change to the drive and directory that you created in step two. For example, type C: <ENTER>, then CD\PATCH <ENTER>. 5. Type: PATCH1.EXE and press the <ENTER> key. The following four files will be uncompressed onto your hard drive. AMIPRO.EXE 09/12/94 2873257 AMIPRO3.DLL 12/09/94 219155 ~AMIENV.STY 09/22/94 2847 AMICAL.INI 12/22/94 23854 6. Copy these files into their proper locations (steps a through c below). a. Boot from a DOS diskette (if your Ami Pro is not installed in an HPFS partition) or from the installation and disk 1 diskettes that ship with OS/2. b. When you get the installation screen and have the option to "Go to a command prompt", do so. c. At the command prompt, locate and RENAME AMIPRO.EXE and AMIPRO03.DLL to AMIPRO.BAK and AMIPRO3.BAK respectively. For example, type: RENAME AMIPRO.EXE AMIPRO.BAK and press <ENTER>, and type: RENAME AMIPRO03.DLL AMIPRO3.BAK and press <ENTER>. d. Copy AMIPRO.EXE and AMIPRO3.DLL from the temporary directory into the directory where the old AMIPRO.EXE was located. Reboot the machine. For example, if your AmiPro program directory was C:\AMIPRO you would type: COPY C:\PATCH\AMIPRO*.* C:\AMIPRO and press the <ENTER> key. 7. Locate your style sheet directory. Rename the existing ~AMIENV.STY to ~AMIENV.BAK. Copy the new ~AMIENV.STY style sheet into the directory where your style sheets are stored. For example, if your AmiPro style sheet directory is C:\AMIPRO\STYLES you would type: a. C: and press the <ENTER> key. b. Type: CD\AMIPRO\STYLES and press the <ENTER> key. c. Type: RENAME ~AMIENV.STY ~AMIENV.BAK and press the <ENTER> key. d. Type: COPY C:\PATCH\~AMIENV.STY C:\AMIPRO\STYLES and press the <ENTER> key. Note: If Ami Pro is being run in a networked environment, this may mean copying the style sheet to a single location on the network, or it may entail copying it onto each workstation (see additional network information below). 8. Copy the file AMICAL.INI into the directory where your Ami Pro initialization files are located. If you are not sure where this is open the settings for your Ami Pro object and look at the "Parameters" section. If the parameters section is blank, then your Ami Pro AMICAL.INI file should be in your OS/2 directory. If the parameters SECTION refers to a directory such as -i = "D:\AMIOS2, then place the AMICAL.INI file in the directory specified (see additional network information below). a. RIGHT CLICK the Ami Pro object to display the Pop-up list. b. If your running OS/2 2.X choose Open / Settings. If your running OS/2 WARP simply choose "Settings". c. In the "Parameters" section see if there is an entry such as -i="D: \AMIOS2" if there is then write this path down as will need it in a moment. d. Type: COPY C:\PATCH\AMICAL.INI X:\OS2 (where X is the drive your OS2 program files are located. Or, if in step 8c above there was a -i=<INI PATH> then type in this path. Using the example above, this would be D:\AMIOS2. ========================================================================= ADDITIONAL NETWORK INSTALLATION INFORMATION If you have nodes running Ami Pro for OS/2 from a server, you may elect to do the following: 1. Copy the AMICAL.INI file to the AMIPRO\INSTALL directory on your server. 2. Copy ~AMIENV.STY to the AMIPRO\STYLES directory on your server. 3. Copy the AMIPRO.EXE and AMIPRO3.DLL files to the AmiPro directory on your server. 4. Then have the users run the INSTALL.EXE program to copy the AMICAL.INI and ~AMIENV.STY files to their node. ======================================================================== Problems which have been solved and improvements which have been made: A. AMICAL.INI The AMICAL.INI file now extends the calendar through the end of 1999. B. ~AMIENV.STY Corrects the problem where the return address lines printed on top of each other. If you have already corrected this problem you may elect not to install this. C. AMIPRO3.DLL Corrects a problem in which ' @ParagraphStyle@ ' would appear in documents. Corrects a problem in which soft returns (i.e. CTRL-RETURN) could cause truncated documents. D. AMIPRO.EXE Reduces the amount of network traffic when running Ami Pro for OS/2 in a networked environment. The updated files mentioned in this Technical Support Note are compatible only with the US version of Ami Pro.

Document addendum for DDE in 1-2-3 v. 2.0 (10/6/1993) Readme/What's new
1-2-3 for OS/2 Support for Presentation Manager Dynamic Data Exchange (DDE) Lotus Development Corp. March 1990 This document is a complete description of DDE support in 1-2-3/G for first customer ship. Included are a details of how 1-2-3/G attempts to access other applications, how other applications may access 1-2-3/G data, a description of the Lotus DDE extensions, and a description of the data formats supported by 1-2-3/G. Introduction This document describes the support included in the first customer ship version of 1-2-3/G for Presentation Manager Dynamic Data Exchange (DDE). Included are a discussion of 1-2-3/G as a DDE Server and as a DDE client. There are also sections describing support for the DDE "System Topic", and a detailed description of the data formats used by 1-2-3/G. DDE Client Support Both Worksheet and Graph Tools can serve as DDE Clients. The user creates a link using one of two commands: /EditLinkCreate or /EditLinkPaste-link. These commands are described in detail in the 1-2-3/G Reference. Worksheet As a DDE Client, the Worksheet attempts to create links in TEXT Format. Graph Tool Most any data that is displayed in a Graph Tool window (e.g. Data Series, Graph Titles, Legends, etc.) may have its source as a DDE link. The graph tool requests links in TEXT Format. DDE Server Support The 1-2-3/G DDE Server Application name is Lotus. The Lotus application supports the System Topic, as well as a topic for each open Worksheet or Graph window on the desktop. The topic name of each window is the name displayed in the titlebar for that window. Technical Note: There has been some confusion in the DDE world about the meaning of multiple ADVISE messages, and of mixed ADVISE and REQUEST messages on a single DDE conversation. At FCS, 1-2-3/G supports only one ADVISE or REQUEST per conversation. Each ADVISE for a new itemname or format cancels the previous one. To support multiple advises of 1-2-3/G, open one conversation per advise. A poke to 1-2-3/G as a DDE server may be in a different format as an advise on the same conversation, but the itemname must be the same, or the ADVISE will be cancelled. Worksheet Formats As a DDE Server, the Worksheet accepts links (renders data) in Rich Text Format, TEXT Format, or METAFILE Format. The Worksheet accepts POKE'd data only in TEXT format. Item Names The Worksheet accepts any valid range name or range reference (e.g. A:A1..A:B3). ADVISE support (hot links) When "advised" on an item by the client, the worksheet will send updated data when available (or a NULL data block if the client specified the DDE_FNODATA flag on the ADVISE). The Worksheet sends a notification for changes only when recalc is completed. Thus, Clients of Manual-Recalc sheets will not be notified of value changes until a recalc is requested by the user. REQUEST support (warm links) A Client may request data at any time. If an "advise" is active, the request must be on the same itemname as the "advise" or else the advise is cancelled. POKE support A DDE Client may "poke" data into a Worksheet. The Poke may specify any item name. If a single cell is specified as the item, and the data contains several rows and/or columns, then the specified cell will be the upper-left corner of the table. TEXT format is supported for POKE. EXECUTE support A DDE Client may cause a 1-2-3/G Worksheet to execute a macro by passing the macro text as the EXECUTE command. Graph Tool As a DDE Server, the Graph tool has a single item named 'Graph'. It is a picture of the Graph which is available in METAFILE format. Formats As a DDE Server, the Graph Tool accepts links in METAFILE Format. Another format, Lotus Metafile Size format, is accepted for POKE's into the graph tool (See: ). Item Names The Graph Tool accepts a single itemname, Graph. ADVISE support (hot links) When "advised" on an item by the client, the Graph Tool will send updated data when available (or a NULL data block if the client specified the DDE_FNODATA flag on the ADVISE). Note: Since the creation of METAFILE data is time-consuming, we recommend that Client's not use ADVISE, or use ADVISE with the DDE_FNODATA flag. In this way the Client can indicate to the user that the picture has changed, allowing the user to Refresh the data at his/her convenience. REQUEST support (warm links) A Client may request data at any time. POKE support A DDE Client may "poke" data into a Graph Tool. The Poke must specify itemname Graph, and format Lotus Metafile Size. The data poked in this way specifies the size of the rectangle into which the picture should be rendered. Use of this feature allows the Client to request that the Graph Tool's automatic layout algorithm be applied to the data. EXECUTE support There are no applicable DDE EXECUTE commands for the 1-2-3/G Graph Tool. System Topic Formats As a DDE Server, the System Topic accepts links in TEXT Format. Item Names 1-2-3/G supports the recommended itemnames for the System topic. Sysitems Returns "SysitemsTopicsFormatsSelection" Topics Returns a separated list of names of each Worksheet and Graph Tool window on the desktop (as displayed in the titlebar). Formats Returns a a separated list of the formats supported by 1-2-3/G. The current text is: "TEXTMETAFILELinkRich Text FormatLotus Metafile Size" Selection Returns the name and current selection of the active tool window in the form Name!Selection (e.g. SHEET1.WG1!A:A1..A:B5). This string may be used directly in the /EditLinkCreate command to establish a link to that selection. ADVISE support (hot links) For completeness, DDE ADVISE is accepted by the System Topic; however, the Client will never receive a notification. The Client should use DDE REQUEST to get System topic data. REQUEST support (warm links) A Client may request data at any time. If an "advise" is active, the request must be on the same itemname as the "advise" or else the advise is cancelled. POKE support DDE POKE is not supported by the System Topic. EXECUTE support DDE EXECUTE is not supported by the System Topic. DDE Late Server Support Late Server support is an extension to DDE developed by Lotus and WordPerfect to provide tight integration between applications on the Presentation Manager desktop. Its purpose is to allow links to be re-established automatically when the server of the data becomes available (opens on the P/M desktop). For example, a user is working on a WordPerfect document which includes a hot link of tabular data from a range on a 1-2-3/G Worksheet. The user then saves their work and shuts down. At a later time, the WordPerfect document is opened and the user begins to work on it, but 1-2-3/G is not available (or at least the desired Worksheet is not open), so the hot-link cannot be established. In this case, it is desirable (if not expected) that if the user opened 1-2-3/G with the desired worksheet, then the link would automatically be re-established without any further work on the user's part. Our Late Server protocol extends DDE to allow for this kind of tight inter-application integration. Server Requirements A Server must let all other applications know whenever a new Topic becomes available. This is done using DdeInitiate, where the "Application" name is CLIENT, and the Topic name is the "App|Topic" string that can be used to link to the new topic. For example, when 1-2-3/G opens a Worksheet window named "SHEET.WG1", it "requests" an Initiate from Application: CLIENT on Topic: Lotus|SHEET.WG1 Client Requirements The DDE client must save the link information (Application, Topic, Item, and Format) for each link in its document file, so that when the client document is re-opened, it can attempt to re-establish the link. If the link cannot be re-established, then the client must respond to a DdeInitiate request for an application named CLIENT. When it receives an Initiate request on an application named CLIENT, it should interpret the "topic" name as the Application/Topic combination that is newly availble as a DDE Server. The DDE Client may then attempt to Initiate a DDE conversation with the new server (in the example above, Application = Lotus, Topic = SHEET.WG1). DDE Formats This section contains technical information about the DDE formats supported by 1-2-3/G. TEXT Format 1-2-3/G supports TEXT Format for both incoming and outgoing tabular data. Text may describe tabular data by separating columns with a and separating rows by a sequence. The last row of a table need only be terminated. The maximum size TEXT block that is handled by 1-2-3/G is 65000 bytes. Link Format This is actually a data format used on the Clipboard which is used during the processing of /EditPasteLink. The data consists of three consecutive null-terminated strings, (application, topic, and itemname) which describe the data that was copied to the clipboard. For example, a copy from a1..b4 of SHEET.WG1 would result in a Link format block as follows: "LotusSHEET.WG1A:A1..A:B4" METAFILE Format A Metafile is a Presentation Manager internal data structure than cannot be directly transferred between processes via DDE (although it can via the Clipboard). In order to get around this limitation, metafiles are transferred via DDE by copying the Metafile data from the internal Metafile handle (HMF) into a DDE data block (using GpiQueryMetafileBits). The data may exceed 64Kb, in which case a "huge" allocation is used. On receipt of data in METAFILE format, the data may be written to disk, and then loaded using GpiLoadMetafile. Lotus Metafile Size Format This format is used to indicate to the Graph Tool the size of the rectangle into which a Metafile should be rendered. The form of the data is: typedef struct { USHORT ID; /* id number, must be zero for now */ SIZEL PageSize; /* size of page */ ULONG Units; /* units of page */ } LINKSIZE; The ID specifies the revision level of this structure. Only level 0 is supported (ID must be zero). The SIZEL structure, PageSize, consists of two ULONG values Xsize and Ysize specifying the size of the rectangle into which the Metafile is to be rendered. Units indicates the unit of measurement for the PageSize values (e.g., PU_PELS, PU_TWIPS).

Enable License files for Lotus Windows products under OS/2 2.0 (11/9/1992) Readme/What's new
Enable License files for Lotus Windows products under OS/2 2.0 Please find attached the program that was written to allow Lotus Windows products to use concurrent licensing under OS/2 2.0. Please note that this program has been written temporarily to solve the problem, it has not gone through any QA process what so ever, which means that we will not accept any responsibility regarding its use. As you are aware most TSRs create problems at some time or another when conflicting with other software and this one may be no exception. We will not accept any responsibility whatsoever, regarding it's use. The program installs a new INT 21h handler that makes a fake redirection list entry for the drive that is specified on the command-line. The syntax is: OS2FIX drive for example: OS2FIX L if the LOTSHARE directory is located on the L: drive on the network. You should run this program from a DOS box, after which you can run WINOS2. Our Windows product can now find the LOTSHARE directory on the drive specified on the OS2FIX command-line. If you wish to run Windows programs from the Workplace Shell, the command should be added to the autoexec.bat in the DOS boot drive. Please remember that this program has been written temporarily to solve the problem, it has not gone through any QA process what so ever, which means that we will not accept any responsibility regarding its use.

Fix for Lotus Freelance Palette problems (256 Color palette manipulation, 24/3/1992) Readme/What's new
Instructions for using the new default Freelance/G palette files ---------------------------------------------------------------- Lotus Freelance/G pictures have a poorer visual appearance on OS/2 2.0 for some pictures due to changes in the color dithering algorithm for VGA screens. This can be corrected by changing the Lotus Freelance palettes to make the appearance more appealing. Instructions on how to do this can be found beginning on Page 9-6 of the Lotus Freelance Graphics for OS/2 User's Guide. To assist in this change, IBM has also provided this new set of default palettes for Freelance/G. To use them: 1) Copy the .PAL files from the directory in which they were unzipped to the directory specified by the user for palettes (default is C:\FLG\TEMPLATE). 2) To use these palettes for existing presentations, masters, and symbols, the files need to be opened, the palette switched, and then the file saved. See the the Lotus Freelance Graphics for OS/2 User's Guide for more information on how to do this.
