Dear Zaheer,

Here You Go ;)

Guide to using x Chat

If you have used x Chat before, you will be familiar with this new version. The basic functions are the same. However, there are more features behind the screen. You can know more about new features by reading the 'Tips and Hints' in Help menu.

If you haven't used x Chat before, you will know how to use it in a minute. You will be amazing how easy it can be.

How to use x Draw Step by Step?


Step 1: Make a connection. Click on File - Connect. Enter IP address and click OK.

Step 2: Begin a session. If the connection is ok, you will hear a sound to indicate the connection is established. If not, you should double check the IP address AND the ports setting in File - Properties.

Step 3: Start chatting. Beware of this. It is not a word processor. You cannot underline a single word, edit the character in the previous line, or make a double spacing paragraph.

Step 4: Explore features.Image If you feel it isn't fun for plain text chatting, you can bold / italic the whole text. You may increase or reduce the font size, change font and background colour. If you think your partner is sleeping while chatting with you, you can wake him/her up by clicking the attention bell button.

Additional features in x Chat

There are several great features in this x Chat:

File Transfer With Pause Technology - Click Tools - Send File. You can send a file at a time. During the transaction, you can pause it and restore it (Tools - Send File) later, as long as the connection is still active.

x Draw - Click Special - x Draw. A drawing board with screen capture and image input features.

Optional network tools

IP Address Resolve - (Tools - Net Resolve) Convert IP address to domain name address.

Network Browser - (Extra - Net View) Browse the online computers in your local network.

Best Regards.
