MACRO  OVERLAY COMMAND

          Legend: Ec = [Ctrl][P][Esc] is DOS EDIT
                              

DEFINITION

     When a macro is enabled for overlay, its execution is
     the final operation each time a page is printed.
     Before the macro is executed, the current modified
     print environment is saved and replaced with the
     overlay environment.  The overlay environment is a
     combination of user default and the current modified
     print environments.  Changes made to feature settings
     during the macro overlay are recorded in the modified
     print environment; however these changes are not
     retained upon completion of the macro overlay.  The
     modified print environment that existed prior the macro
     overlay is restored.  

EXAMPLE

     The following commands create and enable the macro for
     later use by the printer:
     
     Command                       Function

     Macros are fun!               Variable Text
     
     EcE                           Reset
     


          Note:  A printer reset will disable an
                 overlay macro from printing on
                 subsequent documents.  The page
                 eject command (Ec&l0H) can be
                 used in the place of the reset
                 to eject the current page and
                 continue using the macro overlay
                 on following pages.
