The font for Word Sinc II.3 can be downloaded here: LOW8BITB.U8K. One of the chars in the font includes the ML to enable the font. Therefore RAND USR 8777 will enable lowercase. POKE 8778,30 RAND USR 8777 will go back to default font. (This assumes the font is loaded at 8192.)

The font can be used in any program, where inverted chars are displayed for capital letters.

I'm on my phone right now, i see you've pretty much got the hang of this Martin,i will of course download this UDG set and add it to my collection. Also i very much like using 5 bytes within the charset for the i reg switching machine code 😁

Shame that the character 0 is a normally a space otherwise it works have been nice to use the first 5 bytes oh well.....

Anyway great work thanks

Just quickly tried this and yes great stuff!

I also like the embedded activation thingy.

To get capitals just shift and G for graphics mode then type the letters as normal come out of G mode and back to lower case Splendid find Martin.

I think I'm finally getting the hang of it too. :lol:
