Sorry, there isn't, and we have no plan to develop them. We can only recommend you to get Windows 95. If you use Windows 3.X, then you can still use NJStar 3.1 as a "DOS application".
You can type in Pinyin mode (from Menu: Input/Other methods/Pinyin) directly in Japanese WP, but this is limited by the following:
The same limitation is applicable to Japanese input within NJStar Chinese WP.
Because NJStar's native document uses EUC encoding (8-bit), it is likely that your document will be corrupted when it reaches to the recipient. There are two ways to overcome the problem:
We recommend you to use option 1. In fact NJStar version 3.1 comes with a new macro assigned to Ctrl-X Ctrl-S which automates the saving and sending of the message. If you use an earlier version of the macro, edit "NJCONFIG.KEY" and update the default macro, incorporating the following:
* New Improved Japanese email sending /replying via Pegasus Mail meta+^S macro ASCInput SaveNewJis enter & BegFile Search "Reply-To:" enter JTrue OK: & BegFile Search "From:" enter JFalse NewMail: & OK: Search ':' enter WordRight UnMarkBlock MarkBlock EndLine & MarkBlock copy & DOS 'pmail -f ' filename ' -t ' paste ' -s "[JIS] " ' pause & Jump END: & NewMail: DOS 'pmail -f ' filename ' -t (recepient) -s "[JIS] "' pause & END: saveEUC enter
Yes. Follow the steps below:
If you find that the document appears to be corrupt, then check if you have selected the program configuration correctly:
When you open the document, you should see that the file now appears
correctly. If you still have trouble, then there is yet another option.
Quit NJStar session, and from DOS prompt, execute NJStar with "-j"
NJSTAR -j This guarantees that NJStar will read Shift-JIS file, as it uses
I am afraid this is a technical limitation at the moment. You can split the large file in several smaller files and edit them individually. NJStar version 4 can handle large document, however.
Type "dzu". In NJStar version 4, you can also type "du".
Please remember that Japanese particles use kana characters different from what they are pronounced. Type how they are written in Japanese, e.g., wa = "ha", e = "he", o ="wo".
Editing rubi is possible in NJStar, though it is laborious. At any rate the following is the basic guideline:
Example in NJStar:
ぶんしょう に ほん ご

set the following command in the document (preferably at the beginning) \footer(" ")
What you need is a text editor / word-processor that is large enough
to edit a large text file of 3 mega bytes or more (such as Windows Write).
Before editing the dictionary files, please study the document format of EDICT (see EDICT.DOC).
Note that you need the above program must be dated after February 1995 if you want to convert one of the latest copies of EDICT.
