EDITING TEXT FILES [E]

If you want to modify a text file you can use MarxEdit, included in this package, or set up DM to run your favorite EDIT program on a selected file. The program must be installed in the same directory as DM or its path must be specified during the setup routine. To set up your EDIT program, choose [X] (Extra Functions) and then choose [E] (Set EDIT Program). The message "Input the Command for your favorite EDITOR program" will appear. Type in the name of your program, (and its path, if necessary), same as if it were being executed from DOS. To edit a file, position the arrow at the text file and press [E]. To save, press [CTRL-K-S]. To save and quit press <CTRL-K-D>. To quit without saving, press [CTRL-K-Q]. You may also use [F10] to access the drop-down menus in the ME.EXE editor. Use caution in editing files. Do not attempt to edit files other than text or document files. To do so could result in damage to a program or your operating system (DOS) files.
