Neodesk 3.0

                     NEODESK 3 THE REAL ALTERNATIVE!
                      ===============================

 OVERVIEW
 --------

     NeoDesk  3  is  a  complete  replacement for the built-in desktop that
 comes with the Atari.  It is the easiest and  most affordable  way to rea-
 lize your Atari's true potential.

     NeoDesk 3  adds many  new features  and enhancements over the original
 desktop, while keeping full compatibility  with  your  current  and future
 software.

     Not only  will your  computer be  more powerful,  it will also be much
 easier to use.  It doesn't  get any  simpler.   NeoDesk 3  is the ultimate
 upgrade for your Atari ST.


 INSTALLATION
 ------------

     NeoDesk 3  can easily  be installed  so that  it comes up whenever you
 boot the computer.  


 OUTSTANDING FEATURES
 --------------------

     NeoDesk has "JILLIONS" of  new  features  and  enhancements available,
     this is  only a  few of  the more  outstanding features we found to be
     superb..:

   o FILE CLIPBOARD
     Store files and folders  temporarily in  memory while  changing floppy
     disks, paths,  or reorganizing  your hard  disk.   You can think of it
     sort of an automatically  expanding and  shrinking ramdisk.   The File
     Clipboard grows  and shrinks  according to  the files you place within
     it.

   o DESKTOP NOTES
     Write important notes, numbers, or doodle right on the desktop itself!
     Simply double-click  on the  desktop itself  and a cursor will appear.
     [Esc] clears the line.

   o DESKTOP ICONS
     Place commonly used programs, files,  and  folders    directly  on the
     desktop.    You  can  then  select  the icon and use  "Install Desktop
     Icon..." to rename the icon and assign a unique key to it.   Selecting
     that key will select and open the icon.

   o CUSTOM ICONS
     Assign different  icons (each  with its OWN COLOR) to any file or fol-
     der.  This makes it much easier to locate and manage them.  Many icons
     are included, with more available.  And of course, you may create your
     own Icons or use the Icons from earlier versions.

   o ICON EDITOR
     This multiple window Icon Editor lets you edit and modify custom icons
     for any  file or  folder.   Includes a  complete set of drawing tools.
     Select "Edit Icons..." to call it.  Double-click  on any  icon to edit
     it, on  the desktop  to edit  it.   This editor is far superior to any
     Icon editor I have used, including the older version from Gribnif.

   o SPLIT-WINDOWS
     Easily split a window so that it will  display two  different parts of
     the same  directory.   Very useful when copying or manipulating files.
     To do this, drag the "Split Window Bar"  under the  window information
     line to any window position.

   o "SELECT ALL" ABILITY
     A  new  window  button  (left  of  the bottom horizontal bar) lets you
     select all the files in a single directory, even if they don't  fit in
     the window.   You  can even  keep files  selected while you scroll the
     window to a new location by holding down the [Shift] key.

   o INDEPENDENT WINDOWS
     Each window can be set to display text or icons, independently of each
     other.   Each window  can even  have its own sorting and text options.
     The new button at the lower left corner of the window toggles a window
     between text or icons.

   o SMART FILE COPYING
     No more  useless disk  swaps.  In a very efficient and fast manner, as
     many files and folders that will fit into all the available memory are
     read in  at once.   Especially nice for hard drives, this feature is a
     real benefit for all hard drive users.

   o SMART DISK COPYING
     NeoDesk 3 can intelligently detect the  type  of  format  used  on the
     original disk  and format the destination disk the exact same way. You
     can even copy identical hard disk partitions.

   o FULL MACRO IMPLEMENTATION
     Automate  any  series  of  desktop  operations  like  opening windows,
     copying or  deleting files, executing programs, etc.  Then assign them
     to any key on the keyboard.   Select  the  menu  entry  once  to start
     recording and  a second time to end recording.  Does not record inside
     of running programs or in dialog boxes.

   o ACTIVE ICONS
     Drag any group of files to any program icon and  that program  will be
     automatically executed with all the selected files as parameters.

   o SEARCH FILES
     Easily search  your system  for that missing file.  When found it will
     open a window to it, scroll to the file, and select it.

   o FILE TEMPLATES
     Up to six file templates are supported.  For example, you could have a
     single  window  display  all  files  ending  in both ".TXT" and ".DOC"
     endings.

   o DISK FORMATTING
     You can specify 9 or 10 sector format, number of tracks, and  even use
     the newer "Twister" option.

   o REORDER MODE
     You can  easily reorder  any directory on your system.  Select it once
     to enter the reorder mode, a second time to exit it.

   o ENHANCED FILE "SHOW"
     Neodesk 3 is able to display  Degas, Degas  Elite, and  NeoChrome pic-
     tures.  Right mouse button goes forward a page, left mouse button back
     a page.

   o ENHANCED INSTALL APPLICATION
     You can select the type  of  application  you  are  using,  if NeoDesk
     should unload for it or not, and more.

   o SUPERB DIABLO MANAGEMENT
     The Diablo Emulator purrs like as kitten with Neodesk 3, just    drag
     a file or a number of files to the LASER PRINTER ICON and they will be
     printed.  Has a 'form feed' in the drop down menu if needed.




 COMMENTS
 --------

     NeoDesk 3 has many other features  many of  which were  barely touched
 upon  here.    Features  like  a  NEW  ENHANCED Control Panel with its own
 screen saver and corner  clock, Printer  Queue, Print  Directory function,
 and  much  more.    NeoDesk  3  comes with a superb, well written 140 page
 illustrated instruction  manual, two  disks, several  extra utilities (one
 can  even  replace  the  system  fonts!),  and  a recoverable trashcan for
 NeoDesk.  The FORMAT AND FILE COPY functions  in Neodesk  3 are  so unique
 they even  remove the boredom of these mundane everyday tasks by providing
 information relative to the task and it is constantly updated.  This  is a
 very nice touch.  The Gribnifs have really outdone themselves on this one!
 This version is equal to if not better than TOS 2.0.
