• Write Now Manual for VIC-20

    From Lawrence Woodman@3:770/3 to All on Saturday, August 21, 2021 06:38:57
    Hello everyone,

    I'm trying to use Write Now on the VIC-20 but can't seem to find a manual
    for it. The nearest I can find is what Anders Persson worked out:
    http://www.boray.se/commodore/writenow.html

    This is helpful but I'd love to be able to look at the manual. I've
    looked online and can't find it.

    Does anyone have a link to the manual that I have missed?

    Best wishes

    Not sure if this is manual or not, but it sure looks like it.

    https://commodore.bombjack.org/commodore/commodore/ VIC-20_Personal_Computing_Guide.pdf

    That site has been my mainstay for finding just about any book on commodore computers.

    Its actually a preservation site, that preserves books on many differenet computer related topics and machines. If you have never checked it out, it is definetly worth your time to check it out.

    Thanks but unfortunately this is a general manual for the VIC-20 not the
    Write Now word processor manual, perhaps I should have been more
    specific. However, I agree the bombjack site has some great resources on
    it; I've used it a number of times.

    Best wishes

    Sorry about that. I did those fine this link that appears to have the book in ebook on Google Play:

    https://books.google.com/books/about/Write_Now.html?id=6SoIkAEACAAJ

    Did not follow-up and check out the link to ensure it was the manual, but will keep my fingers crossed!
