This article contains the complete text of the README.TXT file for Grammatik 5, the grammar checker supplied with Word for MS-DOS. The Word Setup program copies README.TXT to the default Grammatik directory (default: C:) when you install Grammatik.

Grammatik 5 - version 1.0 - May 15, 1993
This file contains the latest information about Grammatik 5.
If you have a monochrome monitor and a color card (as is the case with most laptops), it may be difficult to read Grammatik screens. You can solve this in any one of three ways:
- Add the statement: “MODE BW80” to your AUTOEXEC.BAT file. - or -
- Start Grammatik 5 with the monochrome switch by typing the command: “gmk -m” at the command line. - or -
- At the Grammatik 5 main screen, use the “Preferences” menu, select “Screen attributes,” and then select one of the Black and White screen options.
For multi-user licensing and network information, view or print the Word file NETWORK.DOC on your distribution disk.
If your word processor is Microsoft Word 5 or later, you can run it with “hot key” access to Grammatik 5 using the GMKWP program. Below is important information about using GMKWP:
If your Word file has never been saved, be sure to save it before running Grammatik. Do NOT save as RTF format. The file format of the file you are proofreading MUST match the Grammatik’s default Word Processor, displayed on Grammatik’s main screen (usually Microsoft Word 4, 5, 5.5, 6.0).
If, after the File Save As dialog box appears, Word displays another dialog box (“File already exists”, for example) Word will beep. This means Grammatik will not run. You must choose File/Exit after the file has been successfully saved.
Grammatik’s hot key will not work if the “Use Word 5.0 Function Keys” option is on.
When you press the hot key inside Word and the Save As dialog is brought up, you must press ENTER to start Grammatik. Clicking the OK button with the mouse will not start Grammatik.
Macros created in Word and assigned to quick keys CTRL+0 through CTRL+9 will not work with the GMKWP command.
The Grammatik hot key won’t work while a Word dialog is open.
ALT+DOWN ARROW key won’t drop down a list box when the Grammatik hot key is used.
CTRL+TAB will not insert a tab in a Word table when Grammatik is running. Tab characters can be cut and pasted from outside the table.
You must use the alternate hot keys for the following:
Action Hot key (won’t work) Alternate (will work) ————————————————————–
Save As F12 ALT+F2 Save SHIFT+F12 ALT+SHIFT+F2 Open CTRL+F12 ALT+CTRL+F2 Print CTRL+SHIFT+F12 SHIFT+F9 Next field F11 ALT+F1 Prev field SHIFT+F11 ALT+SHIFT+F1 Edit Undo ALT+BACKSPACE n/a Copy to scrap CTRL+INS n/a Select document CTRL+Numpad5 Prev Paragraph CTRL+UP ARROW ALT+F10, LEFT ARROW, RIGHT ARROW Next Paragraph CTRL+DOWN ARROW ALT+F10, RIGHT ARROW
NOTE: You can change the default hot key for Grammatik from ALT+G to SHIFT+F5 and Word’s hot keys will work. You can Change Grammatik’s default hot key by choosing Word Processor from the Preferences menu, and using the “Set Hot Key” command button.
This release of Grammatik 5 requires at least 471 kilobytes of free RAM to run. You can use the DOS ‘CHKDSK’ command to see how much free RAM is on your system. If CHKDSK reports less than 482,304 bytes free, you will need to free conventional memory before running Grammatik 5.
