A method is described for the user of a Personal Computer (PC) to indicate a paragraph to be adjusted without explicitly marking the area to be adjusted. Notewriter is a mini-application that provides a way for the user to create, save, and edit simple notes. The size of a note is limited to about 12K bytes of memory, or about 7-8 pages of text. Notes may be saved and retrieved from diskette as standard ASCII files using IBM PC-DOS file naming conventions. Full-screen editing support is provided for the user to insert or delete characters, lines, and blocks. This article describes a method of adjusting a paragraph indicated by cursor position and repositioning of the cursor to facilitate further paragraph adjusting. The adjust function is invoked by a single keystroke.
