DECIMAL block INDENTATION


!+DI+


!+DI+ set the decimal block indentation level __________________________________________________
This code sets the left margin indentation for decimal blocks.


!+DI<indent>+
3 _


<indent>...the margin increment between decimal levels
NOTES _____
An additional (n-1) * <indent> spaces is added to the left
margin of every Decimal Block of level <n>.
Decimal block margins (and heading levels) can be set
independently _____________ of the !+DI+ code, by using the "Macros" option
of FULLPRINT (and the appropriate system-defined format macros
-- see Section 4.7).
EXAMPLES ________
!+DI3+ (the default) ____________________
The left margin of decimal block '1.1' will be 3 greater
than that of block '1',the left margin of block '1.1.1' will
be 6 greater than that of block '1', etc.
!+DI0+ ______
The left margins of all decimal blocks will be the same
(unless altered by !+MARGIN+ alter codes). This enables
more text to fit on a page.

GRID


!+GRID+


!+GRID+ draw a grid ______________________
The !+GRID+ alter code is a facility which allows the FRESS
user to represent graphs, tables, charts, etc. graphically.


!+GRID<grid>+


<grid>...the coded representation of the table to be drawn
NOTES _____
A complete discussion of how to create !+GRID+ codes is given
below under "GRID CONSTRUCTION," "HORIZONTAL EXPANSION," and
"VERTICAL EXPANSION." Reference tables for each grid character
and its expansion code are supplied under "REFERENCE TABLES."
Examples are found under "'PIECES' of GRIDS," and "BOXES AND
GRIDS". "STEP-BY-STEP EXAMPLE" demonstrates how a grid code is
created.
As with the box format code (!-B-), text following the !+GRID+
code begins in the upper left-hand corner of the grid.
Therefore, the user will usually skip a line before any text is
entered.
Text typed inside a grid will replace any grid characters in
the same position. This is also true of special blanks ("¬"),
but not regular blanks.
A !+GRID+ code acts as a conditional page. Consequently, if a
new page is forced, the grid will be left justified. The user
should take care to allow for this, perhaps by explicitly
adding a conditional page code (!-K-) before the !+GRID+ code.
Besides generating the various tables shown below, !+GRID+ is
also useful for constructing diagrams such as flowcharts and
decision trees.
