		AsciiArt Pro Studio - The best ascii painting package, and one
					of the only ascii animation packages.

	2. Brushes

	3. Using IFF pics

	4. Animation

	6. Other notes

	



**** 1: Basic Usage **************

	Using AsciiArt Pro is simpler then ever because of its new 'DPaint'
style interface. All the tools are in buttons on the right of the screen.

	To draw an ascii picture, all you have to do is select an ascii
charecter, either by using the table in the button bank, or just press
the one you want on the keyboard.


**** 2: Brushes ******************

	To pickup a brush, you click on 'pickup' in the brush menu, and
mark out the area you want as a brush.

	You can then paint with it like single charecters. If you want to
stop using the brush (to do some detail with single chrs) click on the
use button (clicking again will turn it on again)


**** 3: Using IFF pics ***********

	To convert a picture to ascii, just press on the 'convertpic' button
and select a picture. To get the most out of this option you must play
with the contrast settings in the iff 'options' button. It takes practise
to get good results.

	If the picture is only 2 colours then asciiart pro traces around the
shapes to make smooth ascii lines.

If you change the text colours then converting it from iff will use the
next text/bg colour. (see 'AsciiArt-2ColShape.AAF')


**** 4: Animation ****************

	To start the animation you first set the no. of fraims. If you have
started an anim then you can add fraims to it.

	When you save you can use 2 formats -

	.AAF - AsciiAnimationFormat is my own format. At the moment AAPS only
           supports uncompressed type 0 format.

	AsciiStream - This produces a big ascii file, and with abit of modifing,
           could be used in BBS's/MUCK's etc.
          * You can't load ascii streams back into AAPS.




**** 5: Registering **************

	To register AsciiArtPro Studio, just send your name, 
cash/cheque or postal order for £5 (or equivalent in your own currency),
and your EMail/mail/phone No. to :

	Andrew Crowe
	17 lansdowne Rd.
	Hove
	E.Sussex
	BN3 1FE
	England

And I will send you your keyfile password. If you have any questions
then EMail me ( andrewcrowe at enterprise.net )

Make Cheques payable to A.Crowe



**** 6: Other notes **************

If you can think of anything missing from this release, then EMail
me, because the only way I can make this better is with YOUR help.



! EMail note - !
	During School terms I will not be able to answer EMails until
	the weekends because I go to a boarding school, so don't wory
	if you don't get a reply quickly!


Trouble Shooting:
	
	Known Bugs:

		there are a few bugs in the brush display and pickup, and I
		will fix them for V1.0 release.
		(you can only pickup brushes from topleft->bottomright)

	Apart from that, I haven't had any other problems with it,
	so if there are, EMail them to me.

	Here is a brief explanation of the error requester

	------------------------------------                             
	| Error 31 : Bad Args.         +---------- Here it tells you

	|| Retry | Cancel | Ignore | Quit ||-----  Here are your options.
	------------------------------------

	Cancel - Ignores the error and continues.
	Ignore - Ignores all errors.
