TypingMaster 11: Importing Texts and Unicode Compatibility


Introduction: In TypingMaster 11, importing texts is a convenient feature that allows users to practice typing on various texts. However, it's important to note that the software operates on a 32-bit platform and does not support Unicode encoding for imported texts. This means that when importing texts, users need to ensure that the files are saved in a compatible format to avoid any compatibility issues. In this support article, we'll guide you on how to prepare your text files for import into TypingMaster 11 using Notepad and ensuring compatibility by saving them in ANSI CHARSET.


Instructions: To ensure smooth importing of texts into TypingMaster 11, follow these steps:
  1. Open Notepad: Launch the Notepad application on your computer. You can typically find Notepad by searching for it in the Start menu or using the Run dialog box.
  2. Prepare Your Text: Copy and paste the text you want to import into TypingMaster 11 into the Notepad window. Alternatively, you can type the text directly into Notepad.
  3. Save the File: Once you have your text ready, navigate to the "File" menu in Notepad and select "Save As..."
  4. Choose File Format: In the "Save As" dialog box, choose a location on your computer where you want to save the file. Then, in the "Save as type" dropdown menu, select "All Files (.)" to reveal additional options.
  5. Select ANSI CHARSET: From the list of file types, choose "ANSI" as the encoding type. This ensures that the file is saved using the ANSI character encoding, which is compatible with TypingMaster 11.
  6. Name Your File: Enter a suitable name for your file in the "File name" field and ensure it has the appropriate file extension (e.g., .txt).
  7. Save the File: Click the "Save" button to save your text file in the ANSI CHARSET format.
  8. Import into TypingMaster 11: Now that your text file is saved in the correct format, you can import it into TypingMaster 11 without encountering any Unicode compatibility issues.
Conclusion: By following these simple steps and saving your text files using the ANSI CHARSET format in Notepad, you can ensure compatibility when importing texts into TypingMaster 11. This allows you to seamlessly practice your typing skills without any hindrance due to encoding issues. If you encounter any further difficulties or have additional questions, feel free to consult the TypingMaster 11 documentation or reach out to our support team for assistance. Happy typing!


NOTE: If these special characters still do not appear OK on your screen, please make sure you choose your NATIONAL CHARSET/REGION from Windows Control Panel for 32bit applications to match your ansi text file.
