Downloading, Documentation, Modifications, and Support

For those who long for the good old days. Here's a macro that quickly pops up a fill-in dialog box, then produces a memo that you can print or save.

(Dialog box)

(Sample memo)

Several formatting options in the macro code (date format, "brand," footer text, etc.) make it easy to customize. See the instructions at the top of the macro's code to modify the defaults. (A macro is just a specialized WPD document, so you can open it with WordPerfect just like any other document.)

Thanks to Paul E. Merrell for the idea behind the macro.

See also FAXIT, which contains FaxCover.wcm, a macro that operates in a similar fashion to Memo, but produces a fax cover page.
