On 21 November, 2006 I posted to the Yahoo Groups Dasher "group" the following, which went unanswered:
There is an error in the documentation. Can someone please tell me
how to submit a correction? I will detail below. If it has been
submitted or if someone will do so from this, that's fine.
The latest version of Dasher has a change in Options not reflected in
the help file. What used to be called "Send text to other window" is
now under Preferences->View->Application Style (Windows) or, under
Linux, Edit->Preferences->Application->Application Style.
On the other hand, if it is still there, maybe the design of the preference window should be reconsidered...
I will make inquiries as time permits. If anyone wishes to try installing an older version the following link points to the edgy version:
If you decide to try nx, you have to download the nxclient, the nxnode and the nxserver (free edition) and install them in that order. You can find them here:
In any case, many thanks.

I have posted to Launchpad a question about Dasher, about the missing feature, and I am open to suggestions about where else we may post a query.
In the meantime the program will remain useful to many with only the additional step necessary of copying all text and pasting to another window but for anyone for whom this would be difficult the missing feature does limit its utility.
this page on Dasher's website. It tells you where get more information.
Particularly, to ask for missing feature in Dasher, you should go to gnome's bugzilla. Do a search for what you what, and if it is not already filed, you should start a Request For Enhancement Bug to ask for the missing feature. You should begin the title of your bug with the keyword RFE (e.g.: "RFE: Beam text to front window"); so the developer immediately know that it is a request.
Have a nice day.
