Abstract

A simple and fast method of changing the default pitch for an entire document inclusive of footnote text is described. In DisplayWrite 2, footnotes were introduced. The features present in the DisplayWrite 2 version of footnote applications are identical to those present in DisplayWriter Textpack 6. As in DisplayWriter Textpack 6, DisplayWrite 2 footnotes allow the creation and revision of format changes within the footnote text. The operator creates and revises the format of the footnote text via the Format Change key. In DisplayWrite 2, this is the F7 key. Among other things, the operator may change line formats, tab racks, and also restore the aforementioned items to their default values.
