    1 Yudit Unicode Editor FAQ
    2 ========================
    3 Version: 3.0.7

    7 Q1: How can I display this FAQ again?
    8 A1: Type `help' in the command area. Similarly you can get a testpage
    9  if you type `test' in the command area. Type 'howto japanese', 
   10  'howto configure' to get the howto pages.
   11 
   12 Q2: Where can I get updates?
   13 A2: Download them from http://www.yudit.org/
   14 
   15 Q3: I pressed Save Button and nothing happens. Why?
   16 A3: Yudit has a command line. 
   17   Most probably you just need to hit Enter Key.
   18 
   19 Q4: What is that [Line Break] on the right hand side that is mostly 
   20  showing "Unix"?
   21 A4: The line end marks are:
   22  UNIX='\n'   - Unix line break
   23  DOS='\r\n'  - DOS line break
   24  MAC='\r'    - MAC line break
   25  LS = U+2028 - Unicode line separator
   26  PS = U+2029 - Unicode paragraph separator
   27  In Yudit you can mix these - you can create a file that has DOS 
   28  and Unix lines for instance. But you should avoid mixing them if 
   29  possible.
   30 
   31 Q5: How can I get the list of encodings (-e options)?
   32 A5: Type `man uniconv' or `uniconv -h' in a shell window. 
   33 
   34 Q6: How can I add my keyboard input file?
   35 A6: The file may already exist in 
   36     @YUDIT_DATA@/data
   37  in this case you just need to add this to 
   38     @YUDIT_DATA@/config/yudit.properties
   39  If not, you need to convert the source kmap file into binary format:
   40     mytool -type kmap -kmap My.kmap -rkmap My.kmap  -write My.my
   41  Then you need to copy My.my to ~/.yudit/data
   42     cp My.my ~/.yudit/data
   43  Please send me your kmap file (source) to include it in the next
   44  distribution. For more info on kmap files, look at 
   45       @YUDIT_DATA@/doc/keymap-format.txt
   46  The source code of the kmaps came with yudit are in
   47       @YUDIT_DATA@/src/
   48  Note that kmap files can be used as text converters and font maps too.
   49 
   50 Q7: How can I see messages in my own language?
   51 A7: Download the source code and read the README.TXT. It tells you 
   52  how to do it. Please send me the translations so that I can include 
   53  them in future versions.
   54 
   55 Q8: How can I add a TrueType font?
   56 A8: Put font-file.ttf and some-other-font-file.ttf into 
   57     @YUDIT_DATA@/fonts or ~/.yudit/fonts
   58  after that modify 
   59     @YUDIT_DATA@/config/yudit.properties
   60  adding a new virtual font MyFont
   61     yudit.font.MyFont=font-file.ttf,some-other-fontfile.ttf,..
   62  Now you can use this font in the editor window if you add it to
   63     yudit.editor.fonts=...,MyFont,...
   64  or the gui if you add it to:
   65     yudit.fonts=...,MyFont,...
   66 
   67 Q9: Will there be a Windows version?
   68 A9: Yudit has an abstract windowing toolkit. This makes it possible to
   69  port Yudit to, like svgalib for instance, very quickly. 
   70  I ported it for my wife Yuko in 2001 December. This was the first and
   71  last time I touched Windows.
   72 
   73 Q10: How good of a Unicode editor is Yudit?
   74 A10: I tried to implement the Unicode standard wherever it made sense.
   75  There are some quirks, please read the 
   76    @YUDIT_DATA@/doc/HOWTO-bidi.txt
   77  for bidirectional compliance information. 
   78 
   79 Q11: I specified 3 files on the command line and I can see only one now.
   80 A11: They are in the history buffer. If you go to the command input area
   81  and hit Arrow-Up (or Ctrl-k) or Arrow-Down (or Ctrl-j) you can walk 
   82  through the file history.
   83 
   84 Q12: What are the hot-key bindings?
   85 A12: You can see most of them - the yellow tooltip shows them 
   86  underlined. Most of them should work with Ctrl as well as Alt keys.
   87  The pluggable editor currently has the following keybindings:
   88 
   89  Escape - switch between command mode and editing mode
   90  Home - go to beginning of line
   91  End - go to end of line
   92  b - Page Up
   93  f - Page Down
   94  k - Up
   95  n,j - Down
   96  h - Left
   97  l - Right
   98  m - Delete Whole Line
   99  x - Delete Selection
  100  v - Paste Last Selection
  101  If Meta is kept down while moving the caret, the text will be selected.
  102  Mouse double click selects a word triple click selects a full line.
  103 
  104 Q13: How can I read the contents of a binary keymap file?
  105 A13: You can make a source dump like this:
  106  mytool -my @YUDIT_DATA@/data/GreekBible.my \
  107       -convert mys -write GreekBible.mys
  108 
  109 Q14: How can I quickly enter a unicode character?
  110 A14: Change input to [unicode], enter uxxxx or Uxxxxxxxx where x is
  111  a hexadecimal number. 
  112 
  113 Q15: Can Yudit do replace functions?
  114 A15: In The command area you need to type
  115   replace old-text new-text
  116  and hit an enter for each find/replace.
  117 
  118 Q16: When can I find the handwriting input method?
  119 A16: Click on the blue arrow (input method). Assign
  120   freehand to one of the F keys.
  121 
  122 Q17: How can I turn off syntax highlighting?
  123 A17: From the command area by typing: 'syntax none'. 
  124   The available options are printed in error label 
  125   if you just type 'syntax'.  You can set this in 
  126   the config file too. If you type "howto syntax"
  127   in the editor command area a help file is displayed,
  128   which describes spell checker support too.
  129 
  130 Q18: How can I turn off word wrapping?
  131 A18: From the command area by typing: 'wordwrap false'. 
  132   Typing 'wordwrap true' turns on word wrapping.
  133   You can set this in the config file too.

  135 Appendix
  136 ========
  137 1.1. Keymap Examples
  138 
  139  The following examples are for some kmaps that came with Yudit.
  140  Russian
  141   It maps phonetic Russian letters. The not so obvious ones are:
  142      yo yields ё , c  yields ь,  q yields ъ
  143      x yields ы ee yields э
  144  Hungarian
  145   It maps Hungarian and German characters. The  accented characters 
  146   can be input with the  English character followed by the accent.
  147     Examples:
  148       a' becomes á , o: becomes ö ,  o" becomes ő 
  149       SS produces the German ß , Ss  gives the paragraph sign §.
  150   Kana 
  151    It maps Romaji into Hiragana and Katakana. Small letters are 
  152    used for Hiragana and capitals  are used for Katakana. The not 
  153    so obvious  ones are:
  154       PP - 〒   <> - ◇  <>> - ◆     [] - □
  155       []] - ■  OO - ●  <ESC>* - ☆  <ESC>** - ★  
  156        ~ - ・    Oo - ◎  o+ - ♀      o- - ♂
  157        oC - ℃   Y= - ¥
  158   Mnemonic
  159     With this map you can use RFC1345 mnemonics to enter
  160     the characters. Some examples:
  161        &0u - ☺  &0U - ☻ &tel - ☏  &PI - ¶
  162        &SU - ☼  &cH-   -  ♥  &M2=♫ &sn - ش
  163   SGML maps SGML to unicode.
  164      Examples:
  165        &female; - ♀ &spades; - ♠, &boxvR; - ╞
  166        &block; - █ &blk14; - ░ &frac18; - ⅛
  167   Hangul maps Roman transliteration into Hangul characters.
  168    The ISO/TC46/SC2/WG4 transliteration is used. You
  169     can find out about it more at
  170       http://www.hansoft.com/hangul/faq.html
  171     Some examples:
  172       ulyanghan - 우량한  pyohyeon - 표현
  173       cinseon - 친선,  jageug - 자극 hwang geum 황금
