TurboQuill

TurboQuill and TurboQuill+ is a third party program which modifies Quill to improve its speed, adding around 8K of code to the main Quill program.

Once Quill has been adapted by TurboQuill, you have to use a special config program (supplied with TurboQuill) instead of the original provided by Psion, as the offsets of the defaults within the program are moved.

Another program (Spellmod) is included with TurboQuill in order to adapt Spellbound to work correctly with the amended version of Quill.

The changes made by TurboQuill are:

  • Improvements to the speed of Quill
  • Cursor in Quill changes colour to show whether CAPS LOCK is pressed or not
  • Glossary function added, allowing you to store key sequences for quick entry into Quill with CTRL + letter key. CTRL S provides a special function which injects the stored sequence as soon as you start up Quill, allowing you to load a standard letter for example.
