Can I import a text file into Toaster CG? I need to run a crawl at the end of a play with a number of students. The school has provided me with a word document of the students name..I would love not to have to retype it again.

Inquiring minds want to know. I know the old toaster CG did this.
Help me out here, folks

If memory serves, you can simply save it as an ascii text file and load it using the CG file menu, Ray. It'll then take some formatting, of course.

If you just cntl + a, and cntl+c it in the word document and then, with the text button highlighted in the CG, you click on the paste button, voila it is all there. Unfortunately the scroll up looks like cr** though.

copy the text (with carriage returns if needed - which really sorta complicates things) and then place the cursor where you want it in CG, then paste.

It's way easier than the manual alludes to.
