The lesson format follows a tutorial. Tasks are named by a topic heading
followed by a brief overview of what you are trying to accomplish. The
necessary steps are then described in general terms followed by specific step
by step instructions that divide the task into individual keystrokes. When it
is not obvious, you are directed to note some element on the screen to verify
that you have correctly completed a step. Finally, additional commentary or
alternate procedures are described when appropriate.
If You Make a Mistake
Because these lessons are interactive, they are not totally foolproof. From
time to time, you will be asked to make a choice, or you may press the wrong
key. If your choice turns out to be not what you wanted, or you want to try
again, try pressing BackSpace or Esc to recover. Extreme situations may require
selecting Cancel or Quit. In a menu or dialog, select Help
or press F1 for help. Try not to panic, and resist the urge to press
Ctrl+Alt+Delete! When you do recover, you may have to go back a topic or more
to get into synchronization with the lesson.
Use the Cross References
Take advantage of the
links in the help system and the printed manual. If you are interested in
further exploration of a topic, turn to the page number indicated by the tiny
numbers following a topic reference, and satisfy your curiosity.
