General usage instructions

Locate your cursor where you would like to add a comment/heading, and press ctrl shift I. Type in the text you would like generated, and hit enter. Your text will be converted to ASCII and automatically commented. Alternatively, you can go to 'Tools > Insert Ascii Comment'. You can change the font by going to 'Tools > Select Ascii Font'. Whichever item you select from the dropdown menu will become the font used until you change it.
