V6 New Features

1. There has been an extensive rewrite of all menus and dialogs to make them suitable for keyboard and speech control operation. All parts of the program except the graphics editor can now be operated without a mouse.


2. You can now choose the format for graphic clips at the time of pasting. When you move the mouse over a graphic clip, four buttons appear...

Button 1 pastes the clip format one at full size.
Button 2 pastes the clip format one with size reduction.
Button 3 pastes the clip Format two at full size.
Button 4 pastes the clip Format two with size reduction.
