Abstract

In an electronic typewriter having a memory and automatic correction, corrections may be made outside the limits of the automatic correction. When this occurs, a display advises the operator of such, and the operator must manually make the corrections. In an electronic typewriter containing a "full page correction" feature, there is a boundary above which the text on the paper is not automatically correctable. This is due to several different factors including memory size limitations, the use of special functions such as using the memory with a language other than English through having an international keyboard, or management of the memory in which some of the data that is automatically correctable is removed to provide space for new data.

Full Page Correction Boundary Processing

In an electronic typewriter having a memory and automatic correction, corrections may be made outside the limits of the automatic correction. When this occurs, a display advises the operator of such, and the operator must manually make the corrections. In an electronic typewriter containing a "full page correction" feature, there is a boundary above which the text on the paper is not automatically correctable. This is due to several different factors including memory size limitations, the use of special functions such as using the memory with a language other than English through having an international keyboard, or management of the memory in which some of the data that is automatically correctable is removed to provide space for new data. When this boundary exists, the operator can no longer make automatic corrections above this boundary. Accordingly, when the operator moves the carrier to a position above this boundary, the display informs the operator that only manual typing can occur and that a special key must be employed to resume normal operations. When the operator returns to the previous location from which the carrier was moved by activating the special key, the previous display is rewritten, and the typewriter exits the manual mode. When in manual mode because the carrier has passed beyond the boundary, special software algorithms permit most of the typing/correction functions to operate normally to correct the...
