Updates in version 1.1 of the WordStar Command Emulator
Block function updates
These updates vastly improve the usability of the Add-In. They also improve the separation between the Add-In and Microsoft Windows.
- Screen jumping reduced/eliminated.
- Adding ^KB or ^KK marker - if the other exists will now highlight the block until the cursor is moved. ^KB must now precede ^KK as in WordStar - this was not necessary in version 1.0.
- ^QB and ^QK, in addition to going to the block start/end will now re-highlight the block.
- Following ^KC or ^KV the copied/moved block is highlighted. There is a side effect to this in that moving the cursor one position right now jumps you to the end of the block - rather than to its second character. (use left then right moves).
- Before ^KY deletes a block it will highlight it for 0.25 seconds.
- Block copies/moves no longer go via the Windows Clipboard. Use ^K] to copy to the Clipboard. Text selections made by methods other than by ^KB/^KK can still be copied to the Clipboard using ALT+C, etc.
- Corrected issuing of ^KV at either ^KB or ^KK or between them, the marker ^KB marker would be deleted. Now ignores the request, but re-highlights the block.
- ^KC when issued between the ^KB and ^KK markers no-longer allows the copy to take place (WordStar does allow this, as did version 1.0 of the Add-In). A warning message is displayed and the block is highlighted.
Non-visible to end user changes
- ^QA and ^QF now use different scheme to load default word.
- New sub-routine added to combine block-highlighting functions from set and goto marker subs (wsHighlightBlock).
- General code tidy up.
