HearAid 5.0 uses Rich Text Format (RTF) documents as templates in mail-merges and in the Calendar appointment editor. Users can edit RTF documents in word processors such as Microsoft Word and Lotus WordPro, or use HearAid's own word processor


The Toolbar:

Word Processor Menu


The toolbar includes three sub-menus


Edit Menu

The Edit menu provides the usual word processing editing items

Format Menu

The Format menu functions are

Page Setup is used to set page size, orientation and margins
Printer Settings
Bullets & Numbers formatting
Zoom In, Zoom Out, Fit to Page Height and Fit to Page Width control how the editor is displayed in the work-area
Default Page Layout cancels any changes made to the page layout (margins, etc)
Default Font will reset the font back to the Default Rich Text Font set in Tools|Options|General
Layout Mode sets how the page appears on-screen
Auto Zoom will automatically zoom the page view so that the entire page fits within the panel; this may result in very small screen display font size!
Word Wrap controls whether the text wraps so that it is all visible, otherwise you may need to use the horizontal scroll bar to view obscured text


Experiment with the Layout Mode, Auto Zoom and Word Wrap settings to provide optimal viewing of the text
