Attached is a binhexed CompactPro archive of some helpful keyboard
macros I created for use with ClarisWorks 2.0's VT102 communications
emulation. Here's a little background from the READ ME file I've

>They were especially designed for use in conjunction with Digital's
>All-in-One Office Automation package, but should work anywhere the
>VT100 emulation is used.
>Specifically, these macros allow users of Macintosh keyboards
>(both standard and extended) to employ all of the edit functions
>available on the VT series keyboards. They are especially useful
>for standard keyboard users because Macintosh (for reasons

>In addition, users of both keyboards do not have the "find," "insert,"
>"remove," "select," "previous screen" and "next screen" user functions
>available to them in Claris' VT102 emulation.

Hope these are helpful to anyone using ClarisWorks for communications.
