Garden with Insight v1.0 Help: How to use tools with a 16-color graphics display

If you are using a 16-color graphics display, the default tools used by Garden with Insight may look strange and spotty. (If you don't know how many colors your graphics display shows, check the manuals that came with your computer system.) If you want to use Garden with Insight on a 16-color system you should use an alternate tool file with 16-color tools.

Garden with Insight includes four tool files. (If you don't find all of these tool files with your version, you might have to obtain some of the tool files separately -- check our web site for details.)

tool file      size        colors      
tools.too      large       256         
tools_sm.too   small       256         
tools16.too    large       16          
tools16s.too   small       16
The 16-color tool files are for use on a system with a 16-color graphics display. To use a 16-color tool file, choose Tools from the Edit menu on the garden window. In the tool editor that appears, click Load, then choose either tools16.too or tools16s.too from the file dialog that appears, then click OK. You will be back in the tool editor with one of the 16- color tools showing. Click OK to accept the new tool file and return to the garden window.
