Hi, Susan and Evan. Having used the Braille Lite for years, and since the PacMate is made also by Freedom Scientific, I wonder how much of the Braille Lite's editing capabilities are carried over to the PacMate. In the Braille Lite, you can turn on what they call Control Characters in the status menu. Does the PacMate have a status menu? If it does and you turn this option on, you will see all paragraph symbols, page breaks, end of line symbols, and all manner of other formatting codes on your braille display.

Evan,I don't think you ever can. But someone may know something about it I don't. I, like you, just take the final copy into K1000. Happy validating. Have a great day.Susan -----Original Message----- .From: "Evan Reese"<mentat1@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx> .Sent: 8/9/07 7:23:29 AM .To: "bksvol-discuss@xxxxxxxxxxxxx"<bksvol-discuss@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> .Subject: [bksvol-discuss] Re: validation question ..Hmmmm, page breaks don't show up in my Pac Mate when I look at a Bookshare.rtf file I am validating. Hard returns don't either. Does anyone know if.there is something I can do to make them display? It would be helpful to see .them as I read along. For now, I take care of page breaks and make sure the .blank lines are where they should be with K1000. Still, I'd like to see them.on my Pac Mate if possible. . .Thanks. . .Evan ..----- Original Message ----- .From: "E." <thoth93@xxxxxxxxxxxxx>.To: <bksvol-discuss@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> .Sent: Thursday, August 09, 2007 4:52 AM .Subject: [bksvol-discuss] Re: validation question . ..> Page break shows up as ed sign followed by f in the next cell of a braille .> display.
