Copy Option Not Available in Ancient Lands


There is no Copy Text function in Microsoft Ancient Lands version
1.0. The Copy option is available only for pictures found in the
Picture Gallery.


By design, Ancient Lands does not have a Copy Text option. This is
because all screens in Ancient Lands are large color pictures, and do
not have separate text files. As a workaround, you can copy the
entire screen by using the Print Screen button.


Copying Text

  1. To copy the active window containing the desired text, press the
    ALT+PRINT SCREEN keys on the keyboard.

    NOTE: You do not see anything happen on screen.

    NOTE: For information about the Copy and Paste commands, see your
    Windows printed documentation or online Help.
  2. Open Microsoft Paintbrush, which is usually located in the
    Accessories group of Program Manager.

    If you are using Windows 95, do the following to open Microsoft Paint:
    1. Click Start, point to Programs, and then click Accessories.
    2. Click Paint
  3. On the Edit menu, click Paste.
  4. The picture can be printed, or saved as a bitmap image (.bmp).
    For more information, see you Paintbrush Help.

Copy Pictures

  1. Clicks Options on the menu bar at the bottom of the screen.
  2. In the Options dialog box, click Picture Gallery.
  3. Click the Copy Picture button, which is located in the lower-left
    of the Picture Gallery dialog box.


All of the Ancient Lands screens are in the form of DIBs (Device
Independent Bitmaps). A .DIB file format is designed to ensure that
bitmap graphics created using one application can be loaded and
displayed in another application, exactly the way the image appeared
in the originating application. When saving the image within
Paintbrush, the file becomes a bitmap (.BMP).
