Interface English manual

I’m working on a GEM application. I downloaded Interface and the English .rsc file. I figured out how to create and edit menus and dialog boxes but can’t find where you create and edit window resources. Is there an English translation of the manual somewhere?

GEM windows don't work like I think they did.

I'll try ORCS. I downloaded ResourceMaster but it just freezes when I try to save an .RSC file?

I like ORCS. I have a quick question though. On the ST version, you enter mask characters into the edit text objects with ALT+(character). How do you enter them in the Windows version?

Sorry for my english.

What do you want to do exactly ?
A RSC Editor is for edit DIALOGU & ALERT, not Windows...

I was able to add OBJECTs from dialogs to my window through the AES object library, pretty much doing what I wanted in the first place.

He is talking about the windows version of ORCS (yes, this is also available)

Theoretically, the same as in the Atari version. But there sometimes is a problem with Alt-keycode combinations on windows.
