How To Use PsyPlan Viewer

These four function buttons control opening files, printing, viewing this help, and exiting.

Use the Open button to open a PsyPlan planner file.

You may open an ARC, LZH, ZIP or ZOO archive -- it will be expanded and you can open your desired file. Of course, you must have the appropriate utility installed on your system. PsyPlan Viewer automatically installs the LHA.EXE utility for LZH archives.

Once a file is open, you can use the month list-box to view other months and annual for the same person's planner files.

Once a file is displayed, it can be printed. Click on the Print button. PsyPlan Viewer has been tested with the ClickBook Print Utility for printing booklet and pocket planners. Printing without ClickBook produces letter-size pages.

If the Zodiac fonts do not print correctly, try setting Print TrueType as Graphics on the Print Setup Options dialog. This may be necessary if you are using a networked printer.

You can navigate the planner pages with the topical list-box
with the days list-box
with the page-back and page-next buttons

and with Alt+< and Alt+>.

Click on the magnifying glass to pop-up a floating window that shows a magnified view of wherever you point the cursor. Click again to make it go away.

Appointments can be entered on the left-side page. Move the screen cursor with mouse or arrow keys and the yellow box moves. Then click or press enter and a text-entry box is displayed for adding or editing your appointment or diary.

Notes can be entered in the text-entry box on the right-side page. Be aware that only lines that fit on the page will be saved. If you enter too many lines to fit on the page, you'll be given the opportunity to make changes.
Appointments and notes will be saved into your PsyPlan planner file on disk.

For the technically inclined: PsyPlan Viewer can automatically open your planner-file positioned to the current month and day. Simply modify the Program Item Properties Command Line with the addition of your planner-file name and the word "now." For example:

     C:\PSYPLAN\PPVIEWER.EXE johnd.w00 now

With the PsyPlan Professional Publishing System, you can jump directly to building a new planner file with the new button.

Use the Exit button to quit PsyPlan Viewer. The exit dialog box offers the opportunity to save changed planner-files to floppy disk. Pick Yes and a FileSave dialog is presented with a file name based on the current date. You can change the file name if you prefer, but keep the ".LZH" extension. All files changed during the current session will be compressed by LHA.EXE into an LZH archive.

Click the PsyPlan logo for version number and other information.
