Frequently asked Questions:

Q: I can't open the file I just created

A: Be sure you write the extension of the file (.bmp) to the name you're trying to use. For instance, instead of saving to "myimage", type "myimage.bmp". This is caused by the fact that Microsoft made the stupid decision to hide extensions of files by default in its operating systems.

Plans for next version

I really don't think that I will be able to release a next version in the near future. However, any suggestions or comments are welcomed.

Even though I worked hard on this version of Novamatic, I decided it should be free. So, if you like the program, I'd love to receive a postcard from your town or country. Please write to:

Noramally, I would give the source code (Delphi 3.0) free of charge. However, I've lost it after a hard drive crash :(
