Abstract

A carrier of an electronic typewriter having a memory is aligned to text typed off of a base line through moving the carrier a distance no greater than the maximum distance that the carrier is moved by a paper move key and less if the text is closer to the base line than the maximum distance that the carrier is moved by the paper move key. Micro paper move keys can move the carrier up or down to eight different vertical positions between lines generated with normal carrier returns. Paper move keys can move the carrier four vertical positions up or down. Thus, to align the carrier to the text for automatic corrections, it is difficult for the typist to remember the position of the text typed off of the base line, that is, whether it is three or four vertical positions, for example, above the base line.

Vertical Paper Move Alignment for Full Page Correction

A carrier of an electronic typewriter having a memory is aligned to text typed off of a base line through moving the carrier a distance no greater than the maximum distance that the carrier is moved by a paper move key and less if the text is closer to the base line than the maximum distance that the carrier is moved by the paper move key. Micro paper move keys can move the carrier up or down to eight different vertical positions between lines generated with normal carrier returns. Paper move keys can move the carrier four vertical positions up or down. Thus, to align the carrier to the text for automatic corrections, it is difficult for the typist to remember the position of the text typed off of the base line, that is, whether it is three or four vertical positions, for example, above the base line. By using software with an algorithm, the typist need only activate the paper move key once or twice to move the carrier to the position of the text off of the base line. If the text is only three vertical positions above the base line, the vertical escapement of the activated paper move key is temporarily modified so that the carrier automatically moves only three vertical positions above the base line. If the text is four vertical positions above the base line, then the escapement of the paper move key would not be modified, and the carrier would be moved four vertical positions above the base line by activatio...
