I've used this version extensively on Windows and Linux (GTK2 only)

The GTK3 version has a cursor issue. It's behaviour is correct, but it draws itself funny.

Windows and Linux versions only.

In this Release:

Features

    - WordTsar colors and other details get saved in /home/<username>/.WordTsar or C:\Users\<username>\.WordTsar. This is a text file and can be edited by hand if required.
    - Ctrl -> and Ctrl <- added to move word left and right
    - Read/write/display codepage 437 characters on screen (see point 1, below)
    - Current carat position, current block, and save positions (^K1, etc) are saved to a file when document is saved, and reloaded on file load. This means the document is loaded in the exact state it was saved. (see point 2, below)
    - moved from a 4 number versioning system to a 3 numbered one.

Bugs Fixed

    - carat position is no longer shown in ruler

Known Issues

    - RTF file save/load does not handle codepage 437 characters

Points

1. This works for loading and saving files. There isn't a user oriented way to generate these characters yet. Since I use them so rarely, I've just been going to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Code_page_437 and copying/pasting (^K[) from there. Note: Saving to RTF format doesn't work with the special charcaters.

2. This is the first feature I added that is not in the original Wordstar. I tend to move between machines a lot, and files are synchronised between the machines using Dropbox like software. So, I can save the file and exit WordTsar on my Linux desktop, and load the file on my Windows 10 laptop in the exact same state. This also means the entire document needs to be formatted before it can be edited, in order to get cursor positioning right.

The .WordTsar configuration file looks like this:

[base]
showcontrols = false
backgroundred = 235
backgroundgreen = 235
backgroundblue = 235
textred = 0
textgreen = 0
textblue = 0
highlightred = 150
highlightgreen = 100
highlightblue = 100
dotred = 100
dotgreen = 200
dotblue = 200
blockred = 50
blockgreen = 100
blockblue = 200
commentred = 255
commentgreen = 178
commentblue = 102
shortname = gbr
longname = Gerald Brandt
windowwidth = 1020
windowheight = 1231
showhelp = 2


[paper]
paper = letter
leftmargin = 1i
rightmargin = 1i
topmargin = 1i
bottommargin = 1i
paraindent = .5i
landscape = 0

The [paper] section does nothing at this time, but will define a default paper size in the future.

The document specific 'configuration' file is named by removing the file extension from the document name, and adding .ws- infront of it. So, novel.ws would have a config file named .ws-novel in the same directory.

[internal]
cursor = 65836
save1 = 0
save2 = 0
save3 = 28764
save4 = 736456
save5 = 0
save6 = 0
save7 = 0
save8 = 0
save9 = 0
save10 = 0
blockstart = 0
blockend = 0
blockactive = false
