The program for reading is simple and at the same time powerful and
functional. The creator is sure nobody needs a monster – functionality is in
demand. And here he is a success! In spite of the achieved the program is in
constant upgrade – AlReader is elaborated and gains new abilities. And even now
we can say non of the existing programs can be compared to it.
1. The file with rules of line folding accompanies the program. It is
there where we choose the rules or can do without line folding at all.
2. Evening – line evening to the screen boundaries.
If you don't like the text close to the screen edges -
move it aside. In the very menu.
Colour settings of the current profile. Colours are
changed in RGB. Text/ background/ status line/ clock
under the text/ headlines - all these options colours can be changed.
Type setting for current profile. You can switch on bold
type/ evening, type size, line spacing in points as
well as relatively change the width of symbols. And, of course, change the type.
If you have no text file open press left icon in the
bottom of the screen. Now choose the point "Open.
Then in the list of files choose the one you need and
press "Open". It would be appropriate to note AlReader2
can open archived files thus appreciably saving memory.
The supplement gives a good deal of handy abilities to review your favourite
books. In AlReader2 at reviewing a document you can easily see in status line
(in the bottom, above the icons of main menu) where you are reading, how much
you have read and other important information.
Status line is adjustable. It reflects the following modes
Name of the file used
Number of pages read in
Number of pages read in percents
Page by page or line for line modes are available – it depends on which you like
If you are too lazy to press buttons or move stylus, use autoscrolling. It
has two modes – wave and smooth.
At smooth scrolling the text changes like
captions in movie, at wave scrolling a line goes up on the screen gradually changing the
Scrolling speed and line thickness at the mode of wave are adjustable. To do
this press the first line from the left and choose the option Settings then
Autoscrolling mode activation for AlReader2 is realized:
Press the second line from the left on the bottom and choose the option
Here it would be appropriate to mention such an ability as text accentuation
with further export. These are text bookmarks due to which a reader can easily
save some important for him ideas and paragraphs.
Text file opens with similar for all applications way while accentuation is
performed in absolutely different ways.
To accentuate a text in AlReader2 you have to do the
following - press Ctrl and without releasing it point to the beginning of the
text you want to mark and press the left mouse bottom and without releasing the
two bottoms point the text up to the end. The marked words will turn into red.
Now you may release the bottoms.
At choosing subpoint Save a quotation on the screen appears the text of the
page in a small window with a vertical autoscrolling. At pressing the point Save
or Save without headline (there is no difference without them) the program
without visualizing confirmation or cancellation saves the chosen text in into
the file named $alreader_memo.1251.txt, which is in the folder under the name
AlReader2. This folder is created automatically in directory My documents.
An important point is the ability to change screen orientation.
To change the screen orientation in AlReader2, press the first right bottom at
the panel below. At every pressing the visual angle changes for 90 degrees
