REMOVE TOOLTIPS

The Atlantis tooltips are a nuisance and get in the way. I don't need them and would like to turn them off. How can I do this?

Rotate text vertical

I am putting a map full page in my book and to make it larger it is sideways on the page. I want to place the caption under the map and need the text to be vertical.

Access violation

I use a desktop and I save all files before closing Atlantis so it opens the next day with the files showing. I shut down the computer every night then restart it the next day.

STOPPED USING ATLANTIS

After several years of buying Atlantis Word Processor and writing many books published on Amazon I have had to simple stop using it. Sometimes when I open the program in the morning it gives me an error message and I cant move forward. I will no longer buy each new release and will use LibreOffice W...

Clip Library Missing

I closed Atlantis and shut down for the night and the next morning all my clip library clips are missing. I had about 20 of them. I still have all the clips in the Documents>Atlantis>Clip Library files. How do I make the program see it. I have version 4.0.6.4.

Re: A little more on your format

I have been doing this kind of thing for thirty years. Just an example: Create a style called "TITLE LINE 1". Select the font and font size. Select CENTER for your alignment. Then create a style called "TITLE LINE 2". Select CENTER for the alignment. Put about 14 points for the ...

Re: Tiny arrows at the first of each heading

Here I am getting these tiny arrows in front of headings 1,2, and 3. I've tried to delete them but they're locked there. It seems your Heading styles are formatted as list items with no text followed by tabs. Modify the Heading styles so that they are no longer associated with any list formatting (...

I now have the latest version, 3.3.3.1, and very pleased with it. But I notice that the spaces between words have dots in them instead of the usual blank space which is annoying. The former versions didn't have this. Where can I turn them off? I'm using a Dell desktop with 22 inch screen to write bo...

SOLVED! Wrong Resolution of Atlantis

After much discussion here and not a few screenshots I did some experimenting and want to share the results here. Basically, because of my old eyes (80) I keep my display setting at 150%. Now I see that it was the problem. Atlantis can't work at that setting. I go to Control Panel\All Control Panel ...

Thanks, Admin. I'm not talking about the posted screenshots, they are never too wide to post on many other websites. I am talking about the text on this forum. Here are two screenshots from this forum page. First shows the normal screen with the text running off the screen to the right.

The comparison

As you see, both shots show the programs behind Atlantis are sharp and crisp. The first one shows Atlantis as it loads the first time when turning on the machine. The second shows the same programs behind, still very sharp but when I open Atlantis again it is in a low-resolution mode. Why is this??

I cannot reproduce any display problem in Atlantis under the Large (150%) text size on a Windows 7 system. But in any case, individual font glyphs are rendered by Windows, not by Atlantis. So Atlantis has nothing to do with font sharpness. There must be a different explanation for this situation. T...
