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.
Yes. Follow the steps below:
Yes, provided that your Windows 95 is connected to a network, and that you can send your message in English.
Note that if you have installed NJWIN CJK Multilingual Support System for windows 3.1/95, you are able to read ANY Chinese, Japanese and Korean codes in email, newsgroup and webpages.
As NJStar is a word-processor, capable of reading variety of Japanese
JIS files, it is likely that all the Japanese messages you receive can
be read correctly with NJStar provided that "escape sequence"
of the original format is not lost.
If you suspect that this is the cause for corrupted data, then try first to save the message to a disk within your Email program, then read the file from NJStar.
A separate program, NJWIN, will, in most case, allows you to read Japanese messages without using NJStar. (But NJStar is required if you want to type messages in Japanese.)
You must be using the Shareware version!
Basic version of NJStar comes with higher resolution Japanese fonts. If you go for Professional version, you will get 2 Japanese Truetype fonts, which is a must if you want to print smooth text at all sizes. Professional Plus version comes with two further Truetype fonts.
I have received many questions regarding this. Have you studied the above? If you have, then please read on.
Most people using NJStar seem to have encountered either of the following problems:
|I have done cut & paste as described in (2 or
3) in this FAQ.
But the recepient reports that my message is completely garbled.
|Please examine what they have reported to you; if they say that your
message always begins and ends with the letter "M", then your
message is UUENCODED. If not, it is most likely that your message is MIME
encoded (base 64). Please make sure that either (1) you do not encode your
message [and also check if your email program does this automatically]
or (2) your recepient can decode either of these encoding methods.
But if your corrupted message contains a lot of "$", then it is likely that "escape sequence" from New-JIS is lost somewhere, most likely one of your email application software.
|According to my recepient, a part of my Japanese message is corrupted.||It sounds as if you have pasted New-JIS text into your email program
as described (2) in this FAQ, and the line was wrapped
again by your Email program automatically.
Make sure that this should not happen, because New-JIS encoding maintains its consistency every line by marking it with special codes, and if a line is broken, this consistency is lost. If necesssary, keep your line reasonably short in NJStar (e.g., shorter than 30 Japaese characters).
First of all, you need to have a modem attached and correctly configured, and you have installed a fax driver, such as "Winfax driver" or "Microsoft Fax driver". The former is a commercial product, but much better than the latter (bundled with Windows 95).
Having done this, follow the steps below:
Yes, you can use NJStar as a text-editor. We recommend you to use Shift-JIS file format for Web. Just type the tags and text directly and save it. Here are a few pieces of advice:
NJStar's Japanese characters can be cut/paste to other application via clipboard. You can paste text information (such as Email program) or image (such as Paint).
Most people want to know if they can insert Japanese characters in Word for Windows. Yes, of course you can. If you have purchased NJStar 4.0 Professional version, you can insert a Metafile object -- which scales itself, so you can print beautiful Japanese characters.
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. Follow the steps described below:
Not with the current release (V4.00a), but this feature will be added in the next maintenance release. Watch out!
The majority of these accented characters are mapped between ANSI 0128 and ANSI 0160. For example, to type "u umlaut" you press 0129 while holding down the ALT key.
Currently NJStar does not support direct input from the keyboard.
Before editing the dictionary files, please study the document format of EDICT (see EDICT.DOC).
These EXE files are found in NJStar 3.1 package. If you do not have them, you can download the shareware version.
In NJStar, you should be able to search words in either Japanese or English. We have heard from a few people that they cannot search Japanese from English.
We do not know why this has happened, but it is likely that your E2JDIC.DJS (index file) is corrupt, and you need to re-generate it. To do this, follow the steps below:
Minor bugs crept in to CD-ROM version (both Shareware and Registered versions). If you download the program, you should not have the same problem.
No major problem is reported, but the following are currently under investigation:
