Don't lose text when faxing memo file

95LX 100/200LX

Some users have reported losing part of message when sending (via fax or modem) files created with MEMO on the Palmtop. This happens because, like most word processors, MEMO uses "soft" returns within a paragraph, and a "hard" return at the end. This arrangement allows a word processing program to adjust the length of a line when you to change the margins. A "hard" return is created when you press the Enter key in MEMO.

Unfortunately, many other programs, including fax and communications, "see" the "hard" return as the end of line, not the end of a paragraph. They are only set up to send 60-80 character lines and any characters beyond that get lost. You can alleviate this problem by printing your MEMO to a file rather, rather than saving it. Then fax or send that printer file.

ON THE 100/ 200LX IN MEMO: Press (MENU) File Print File Setup (set top and bottom to 0 if necessary), press (ENTER) twice, give the file a name, and press (ENTER) again.

ON THE 95LX IN MEMO: Press (MENU) Print Options (check the left and right margins ), press Quit File, give the file a name and press (ENTER).

The resulting file will have a "hard" return at the end of each 60-80 character line and should be interpreted correctly by most fax and communications programs. (The 100/200LX leaves a printer control code at the end of the file that you may have to delete with a text editor for some communications software.)
