Boxer includes comprehensive online documentation for all of its
commands and features. This documentation is provided in compiled HTML
Help (.CHM) format and is accessible from within Boxer via the Help menu.
Most users will find Boxer very easy-to-use, and might need to
refer to its documentation only when attempting complex operations.
Other users may prefer to browse hardcopy documentation in
order to acquaint themselves with all of a product's capabilities
before (or as) they use it.
For this reason we have also made Boxer's documentation available in
Adobe Acrobat .PDF format so that it can be more easily printed by
the end-user. Click here to download this
file. Please note that this document is formatted for
letter size (8.5" x 11") output; adjustments will be needed if
another paper size is to be used. The document is approximately 915
pages in length and includes all the text and images found in the
HTML Help version of the documentation.
You can also browse Boxer's help file online.
Fixed Width Screen Fonts
Boxer requires the use of a fixed width screen font so that all characters
occupy the same width when displayed on screen. Since text is sometimes marked
in rectangular columnar blocks, this is an essential requirement. Windows
includes several fixed width fonts in its standard installation. Courier New and
Terminal are the most common examples. If you prefer something different, you can
find other fixed width fonts from various sources on the internet.
example is the Dina Programming Font, a very nice looking font from Jørgen
Ibsen. Dina is a free font, and it can be downloaded by clicking the image
Another good-looking freeware font
Bolster Boxer's business by becoming a Boxer Booster. Backing Boxer
begins by boasting 'bout Boxer's benefits before buddies, bosses &
boardrooms. But Boxer's biggest boosters broadcast Boxer's benefits
by blazing bold (but becoming) banners. Banner barnstorming
buttresses Boxer's bottom-line by beckoning boundless browsers.
Barring bothersome bugs, browsers befriend Boxer briefly before becoming
blissful buyers. Behold: brainstorm behind Boxer bestows booty, Boxer's
burgeoning business briskly becomes bountiful! Boxer Boosters benefit
because Boxer becomes better & better!!
Bewildered? What we're trying to say is that we've assembled a
small collection of banners and buttons you might use to
announce your discriminating taste in text editors. This .zip file includes the HTML
code needed to insert a banner or button onto a web page. Please feel free to place
one of these banners on your website and link it to http://www.boxersoftware.com.
Thank you for your support!
