Several issues ago, Mr. Caspar Derksen published a question about 
problems with his Panasonic KN-P1083 printer.  Nothing turned out 
to be wrong with his ST or the printer type - the printer was not 
right and simply had to be replaced.

When printing several copies of an "Easy Draw 2" file,  why  does 
my Star NL-10 roll up a blank page after every copy? And why when 
I  use  the English Pound Sterling sign on my  keyboard  does  is 
print a hash (#) sign? How to stop this please?

Why  does  "Word  Writer" (the "Firt Word  Plus"  lookalike  from 
Timeworks)  drop  out of Bold print style  after  every  carriage 
return  (return key press) until one is about to  commit  suicide 
and then it decided to stay in bold mode after all???

The text of the articles is identical to the originals like they appeared in old ST NEWS issues. Please take into consideration that the author(s) was (were) a lot younger and less responsible back then. So bad jokes, bad English, youthful arrogance, insults, bravura, over-crediting and tastelessness should be taken with at least a grain of salt. Any contact and/or payment information, as well as deadlines/release dates of any kind should be regarded as outdated. Due to the fact that these pages are not actually contained in an Atari executable here, references to scroll texts, featured demo screens and hidden articles may also be irrelevant.
