Word Processor, Diet Power's

 

Two parts of Diet Power have a built-in word processor:

The word processor works the same in both places, and strongly resembles Windows Notepad. There's one important exception, however: the Edit Menu (used for cutting, copying, pasting, and deleting blocks of text) is not listed on the screen. You can open it, however, by right-clicking anywhere on the pad. Or you can perform its functions by using the hot keys listed below.

 

The Edit Commands

 

Most of the commands on the Edit Menu apply to words or passages you've "selected." To select a piece of text means to highlight it. Selecting a single word is easyjust double-click it. To select a block of textwhether it's a long passage or just a piece of a wordpoint to one end of the block with the mouse, hold down the left button, drag the pointer to the other end of the block, and release the button.

 

If you're not familiar with Windows Notepad, here's how the commands on the Edit Menu work:

To export text to another date, recipe, or Windows program:

  1. Select the text.
     

  2. Using the Edit Menu or the hot key Ctrl+X or Ctrl+C (see "The Edit Commands," above), cut or copy the selected text.
     

  3. Navigate to the place where you want the text to appear, and put the insertion point there.
     

  4. Using the Edit Menu or the hot key Ctrl+V, paste the contents of the Clipboard into the chosen location.

To import text from another Windows program:

  1. Select the text.
     

  2. Using the other program's Edit Menu or a hot key, cut or copy the selected text.
     

  3. Navigate to the place in Diet Power where you want the text to appear, and put the insertion point there.
     

  4. Using Diet Power's Edit Menu or the hot key Ctrl+V, paste the text into the chosen location.
