"save documents" doesn't save

Nearly all my Hot Keys work. Not , though, Save Documents. I have both the assigned hotkeys, and a simple F2 hot key (to press while working, so as not to lose stuff.) Tonight, I started New Document, wrote a few words, tried saving. It didn't save. I used the command on "File" o save, and...

Re: Opening screen image

Got it!!!! Thanks for your efforts. My saved files are in great shape, the customized hotkeys are exactly the way I want them, I can put on a Control Board if I need it, and all else is just fine. I don;t know if Version 4*** is a great improvement on Version 1****, but am happy to have downloaded a...

Re: Opening screen image

Can't do it. The screen is a big off-white square taking the whole computer screen, except for the Title Bar horizontally on the top. (The Control Board panel I have hidden). So simply want to fill the white screen with something more....er, interesting?

Opening screen image

This is a cosmetic question, My newest version of Atlantis is working beautifully. But when I get onto the site, I am faced with a topside Title Bar (Files, Edit, View, Help etc), and then a glaring white space over most of the screen. I can live with it. But wonder whether it's possible to cover th...

Re: "Backup" freezes every file

Brilliant idea, Never thought about it, And I'll make a copy of the INI file, so in case Atlantis crashes completely, I can install the original INI file and renew all my past settings. I still don't see how I can delete Clippy Bank (no options on Settings), but I can live with it. As always thanks.

Deleting Clippy Bank

I know this sounds counter-productive, but I'd like to delete Clippy Bank. The Setup directory for Atlantis doesn't seem to be working, but no prolem. Is there another way to delete it? Or must I reinstall and uncheck Clippy Bank?

Re: "Backup" freezes every file

as I wrote before, far too many choices. I saw that all my files were okay, then bit the bullet and re-installed Atlantis 1.5.6.5 (which I'd paid for).It took five minutes to set out the configurations. and now I'm off and running. Thanks so much for your help

Can 't Open On Blank Screem

I can't seem to open on a blank screen. On the Options Catagory, under View, I checked "Create New Document At Startup", but the opening is always a screen which I had saved and exited before. Any suggestions? Many thanks.

Spellcheck checking every word

For some reason, Spellcheck is now checking every single word I write. Whether it underlines "misspelled" words or not, it makes everything from Dog to Doggf to Doog to puppy an unknown word. Any suggestions? Thanks

Dotted lines under each word

For an unknown reason, every single word in a an RTF document has a series of dots underlining it. Not only diverting, but the underlining for wrongly spelled words is missing. (The spellcheck does catch this). Any way of fixing this?? Many thanks
