Title: Using Datatypes to view images with "VT" with OS3.2
Post by: bradhansen1@cox.net on July 13, 2021, 12:03:22 AM
Hi, Can anyone instruct me on how to configure the VT.default file to get it to display images that
use Datatypes to open.  I know I have had in the past a copy that would easily open and display
JPG files. In fact the first time I ever used it, must have been back in the early 90's, I was thrilled that
if could accomplish that. Reading the default VT Guide has been of no help to me. I can use it's examples
to open and display any .iff files, but beyond that it seems hopeless.
Would appreciate any help, Thanks.

If you start VT from the shell you can add the keyword 'DT' or 'DataTypes'.
Add ? for all key words.
You can also activate the DATATYPES tooltype in VTs icon.
