DSe Notepad originally was a notepad application coded by Enira that only saved to the SRAM and opened a fixed file in the SRAM. It is put in a FAT open/save system, to make the application more practical.

User guide

Cut/Copy

Breakpoints are used in the cut/copy functions. Use the following steps to cut/copy text:

  • Use the cursor to scroll to the beginning location of what you want to cut/copy, then use Y to place a breakpoint.
  • Use the cursor to scroll to the ending location of what you want to cut/copy, then use Y to place a breakpoint.
  • You can now press the cut/copy button. This will cut/copy any and all characters you have between the breakpoints.

Pasting does not require any breakpoints; just move the cursor to where you want to paste.

Configuration

INI Config System:

This system is not required, but the default functions are as follows:

Keyboard Color: 0
Save Location: "/DSENOTEPAD/SAVES/"
Open Location: "/DSENOTEPAD/SAVES/"
Overall Color: 0
Default File Extension: ".txt"
Use TD_Graffitis: 1

TD_Graffitis:

The graffitis that added/included to the drawing system (can be disabled in the CONFIG.ini file to provide better compatibility with other similar letters) are:

numbers (0-9)
the "!" mark
the "@" sign

Controls

Left/Right - Moves cursor 1 character left/right

X - Swap screens for precision cursor positioning

Y - Insert breakpoint

L/R - Scroll up/down

Known issues

  • Watch out on the scroll functions; sometimes they mess up.
  • Excessive use of the backspace button sometimes locks the app.
  • Excessive use of the paste button sometimes locks the app.
  • Every once in a while the cut fails.
  • Be cautious about pasting over one line of text. 99% of the time this results in a scrolling failure.
  • Be cautious about writing over one line at a time. Press Enter at the end of your line. If you don't, sometimes the scroll will fail.

Changelog
