Q28580: How to Put Microsoft Editor (M or MEP) into 43-Line Mode
Article: Q28580 Product(s): See article Version(s): 1.00 | 1.00 Operating System(s): MS-DOS | OS/2 Keyword(s): ENDUSER | | mspl13_basic Last Modified: 1-SEP-1988 To use the Microsoft Editor (M.EXE or MEP.EXE) in EGA 43-line mode, the TOOLS.INI file must be modified to include the following statement: HEIGHT:41 (The number 41 is used because the last two lines are used by the editor as status/error lines. See Page 59 of the "Microsoft Editor for MS OS/2 and MS-DOS: User's Guide".) Once the TOOLS.INI is modified, the editor must be re-initialized. This process is done with the Initialize command. The default key stroke for this command is SHIFT+F8. Appendix A lists the values for the other .INI files provided with the editor. The following example demonstrates this process: 1. Load TOOLS.INI. 2. Modify TOOLS.INI. 3. Save the file (ARG ARG SETFILE or leave and re-enter). 4. Use the Initialize command (SHIFT+F8). After the initialization, the changes in the TOOLS.INI become active and the 43-line mode is in use. M.EXE runs in MS-DOS real mode, and MEP.EXE runs in OS/2 protected mode.
