                           .....GRAFIX ART.....

                                  MANUAL       


        This manual was originally written by Tonesoft, and I have 
        stuck in a few things you may need to know.....DEANO 

        GRAFIX ART is quite easy to use and below is a list of its 
        various functions. To select a tool just click on it  with
        the left mouse button. The right mouse  button  is used to 
        enter a highlighted option. On most tools  you  can  press 
        the right mouse button to abort and go back to the menu. 
        On all options, pressing UNDO will undo the last thing you 
        did with the tool.
    
        COMPATIBLES: GRAFIX ART uses the blitter chip on the STE 
        and the FALCON so its faster. Due to  us  not  owning  a
        FALCON we were unable to get it working correctly so some 
        sub menus may not work leaving you with default settings.

        WORKSCREENS: You can choose from nine different work      
        screens by selecting options (1).
         
        LOAD
        To load a picture first choose  which  format  you  want  to     
        load. To do this move the mouse pointer to  *.PI1, *.NEO, or
        *.GRX and press the left mouse button. Your choice will then
        be highlighted, now move the mouse pointer to LOAD and press
        the left button. You will  now  be  presented  with  a  file
        selector. Make your selection and click on OK.

        SAVE
        To save a picture take exactly the same steps as above, only
        press SAVE instead of LOAD.

        The file selector only support the A and B drives. 

        CUT
        To cut out a picture first place the mouse  pointer  at  the
        top left of it and press the left  mouse  button, then  drag
        the box to the bottom right of it and press the left  button
        again. You now have the cut picture saved in a buffer.

        Anything you cut can be used with V-FLIP, H-FLIP, RESIZE and
        of course PASTE.

        PASTE
        When chosen, enter the work screen  by  pressing  the  right
        mouse button. Now move the box as near to where you want  it
        as possible then press the left mouse button.
        Your picture will now be on the screen. You can now move the
        picture into the exact position by using the arrow  keys  on
        your keyboard. Press return when you  are  happy  with  it's
        position.

        H-FLIP
        This will horizontally flip what ever picture is  stored  in
        the buffer.

        Note: This option tends to cut part of the CUT image off. To
        fix this, make sure you make a bigger cut.

        V-FLIP
        This will vertically flip what ever picture is stored in the
        buffer. These last two options work like PASTE.
        
        RESIZE
        To resize a cut picture first press the left  mouse  button,
        then drag the box out to the size you  want  and  press  the
        left mouse button again.     

        INFO         
        Choosing this will tell you how much space is left on
        the disk presently in the drive.

        FORMAT
        Once chosen you will be prompted to choose  how  many  sides
        you wish to format. Make your choice and click on OK.

        OPTIONS
        If options (1) has been selected you will be presented  with
        a paste mode option. Choosing replace, then  pasting  a  cut
        block onto the screen will cause the background colour to be
        pasted with it. If X-ray has been chosen then the background
        colour will be transparent. You can also flip  between  work
        screens by using the arrows.

        OPTIONS
        If options (2) has been selected you will be presented  with
        the option of returning to the GRAFIX  tutorial.  Important:
        This resets GRAFIX ART so make sure you save your picture.

        press the left mouse button anywhere on the screen, you  can
