What kind of files (maybe ASCII), can you import into CG to make scroll or still pages and how do you import them? Have not tried this since about 10 years ago with a VT 4000. Don't want to type Cast pages and Credits. Thanks for any help.

I've done it with normal text files.

I just copy the file to the clipboard and paste it in.

At the top of the CG panel, choose File > Open, browse to your text file (ASCII or Windows .txt) and Character Generator will load the text into the current page.

Or you can jsut open a File Bin, navigate to the .txt file and drag it into CG. there are a couple options that appear but I haven't tried any of them but you can experiment.
