I'm doing a draft for an article which includes some technical drawings made with DrawWorksXL . Using Publisher Plus since I'm most familiar with it. One of the drawfiles I'm using has arrows in it - created in the normal way in Draw. They come out as just straight lines in Publisher. Any way round this? -- *A closed mouth gathers no feet.* Dave Plowman dave@davenoise.co.uk London SW To e-mail, change noise into sound.

To the OP: please use an appropriate group, csa.misc is not a dumping ground - FU to csa.programmer.

Can I get some advice in diagnosing a problem with the BBC iPlayer complaints department please? Using Firefox on WindowsXP I filled in their form asking when a programme might be repeated since it was not on the iPlayer. I received an email response but this was unreadable in Pluto: the body of the email was blank, and there was an HTML attachment of computerese gibberish, e.g. PFNQQU4+PEZPTlQgZ etc. It occurred to me to send the HTML attachment over to the W-XP side and I tried to read it i.... read more

In a programming course, we wrote a (very cheap) programme for Windows with Delphi like this: http://home.chiemgau-net.de/ausserstorfer/quader/quader.php The compiled code has a size of 7.1 MB. That's just fair? How long would be the programme code if written for RISC OS computers?

Hello there I'm using BASIC (& WimpWorks), and a novice at programming.
Could anyone tell me how to enter text in another application's writable icon - I wish to do this from my own app by pressing a button.
An explanation of how/why it works would also be great as it will help me a lot in learning (I'd like to know what is going on as rather than just 'doing it'!).
Many thanks for any suggestions. Cheers Steve -- .------------------------------------.
