6d. "Madness takes control... Lets do the Time Warp again."
Don't all rush me at once! Whoa! Get that straight jacket outta here!. Well,
here's how it is done:
- Close the image we just saved. Yes, start with a blank Photo-Paint screen.
- Make sure you have the Corel Photos CD (the one we used as our original image source) still in the drive and the Scripts Docker visible.
- Double click the file we made earlier for the REDO list. Ah-ha!, got
an error I see. All right, try the script we saved for the UNDO list.
Wow, watch it go. Click the message button after the original image
opens and then watch the speed of this thing. Really fast! Thus, providing
you have the original image CD available, the UNDO saved script will
even reopen the image file we choose to create our masterpiece!
- To show that this is no trick nor that our image is not merely being collected from a saved temporary file or clipboard entry, completely close Photo-Paint, even turn the computer off if you like, then restart Photo-Paint. Start with a completely blank application but ensure you have the correct CD in the drive.
- Double click the UNDO script again (Scripts Docker) and it will recreate the same image again.
- Check the file size of the .csc script file. Mine is 3K in size and thus I could put about 480,000 such files on a single floppy disk and I would only need to carry the original image source CD Rom with me.
who wants to make up 480,000 of the same image, or worse, recreate a different
script each time we need a different startup image. Remember the error
in the file we encountered when we tried to run the REDO history script?
For reasons unknown to me (at this stage), the REDO history script requires
that we load an image prior to running the script. Therefore, we can use
Try the next step.
- Open a different image to begin with. I used 754086.wi from the Photos/Backgrds folder on disk 3 of the Corel 8 set.
- Double click (run) the REDO history script we previously saved. Now it works! (Figure 10).
