IMO the new, looks like a new font mono/garamond. I often edit my assign.sys for this.

New one looks cleaner to me, better laid out. :)

Interesting how it changes the corners of the window too. It's more spacious.

Does that mean I can try out any font?

I'm curious, which NVDI (I assume it's NVDI?) are you using?
Notator crashes with NVDI 2.51 on my MegaSTE.

Nevermind, I followed these guidelines (https://www.atari-forum.com/viewtopic.php?t=13193) and used Softlink, and that worked.

I was using NVDI 5 and just managed to get 2.51 working without freezes in Notator. It crashed at first and then I randomly changed these settings and it now works:

[x] GEMDOS Cconws
[ ] TOS compatibility
[ ] Mouse acceleration
[x] Line-A
[ ] Error messages

I would like to try version 3 and see if I can get that running with Deskpic.

This thread is very helpful as my initial purpose for getting an Atari was Notator.
