Selecting the filename using the Filer
There is an easier way of selecting a file to load into a Z88 Application.
Instead of typing in the filename, the filename may be selected directly using the name from the Filer. This method may be used with most built-in Z88 applications like the Diary, PrinterEd, Panel, as well as some 3rd party software where the programmers have implemented this function like Unzip and Wordmongers XModem.
This method can be quicker and avoids the message as shown below in the Pipedream example, when a file named "wrong filename" which has not been saved is used.
The filename together with 'not found' is displayed on the top of the screen. To use this method follow the instructions as before,
Again try loading back the document you have just saved using the PipeDream Load command.

Y to clear the document.
