Abstract

A technique is described whereby a computer software program called "Color Text" is designed to be used as a text editor for the electronic media, such as with the IBM Personal Computer Storyboard program. "Color Text" enhances presentations by using multiple color, ASCII graphics, and other functions so as to create images with greater visual impact than is possible with conventional text. The editor is compatible with conventional text files allowing greater enhancement of existing text. Help, library and menu screens provide compatibility with other software design tools, such as providing the ability to box-draw ASCII graphics in color. "Color Text" provides the following capabilities: 1. Full screen editing in full color: 16 foreground and 8 background colors are all available on the same screen at the same time.
