I assume you've looked at Edit->Preferences - from a description of the
product, that should have a lot of what we have now in PC5250.
Also, if you have an existing .ws emulator file, you are supposed to be
able to convert it to a .hod file, the file-type for this emulation.
The emulator is based on the long-standing Java-based Host On Demand
product IBM has had. I don't know if anything for that product is useful
- a quick Google didn't get me anywhere.

So then, there is another question, not nearly so important, but for quite a while I have changed the text on my screens with IBM I Access to different colors.
Our one system has turquoise text on black and the other yellow on black. (I wanted to say I didn't have a green screen.)
Silly I suppose but now I'm used to it.
And I can tell at a glance which system I'm on.
I've tried to change the color of the text on the Java based product but can't seem to do it.
Thanks in advance,
When in doubt, hold on to your altitude. No one has ever collided with the sky.

The effect of an F-key instead of the Mac function, is achieved using the fn+F-key; wherein the "fn" key acts similar to a shift, whereby that key is held down, and while being held, the desired F-key is pressed.
The only difficulty I had was that the F keys on the Mac are pre-coded
to perform certain functions. e.g. F4 didn't prompt a command, it did
what Mac wanted it to do - something called LaunchPad which brings up
a menu of applications. I worked around it by using a ? before the
command I wanted to prompt.
No system preferences change is required,
And just now, Google told me there is a system preference on Mac to
What I had used to override the requirement to use the "fn" key in combination with an F-Key, i.e. to effect the desired F-key action without pressing the "fn", was the following navigation:
use F keys as standard function keys. <<SNIP>>
After that preference change is in effect, thus causing the F-Keys to act as F-keys instead of the performing the function depicted on the icon presented beside the F-Key name, to achieve what the function key would have done by default, since requires the use of the "fn" in combination with the chosen F-key. That is, the requirement to use the "fn" is effectively the inverse.
