Use the manual and the online help

Tip version: 11.2

Revision date: 13 May 2001

Software versions: All

It may seem silly, but much of the confusion about the features of Generations software is due to people not checking the explanations in the manual and the extensive online help. Both have been considerably improved in the version 5.2 and higher releases. This is especially so with the online help, which now contains almost everything that is in the manual.

The appearance of Easytree has changed in a number of areas, and when something is unfamiliar, you should look at the manual first!

Many new features have also been added and the answer is the same regarding them.

There is an old saying that computer system managers learn very on in their careers, "RTFM" (Read The Fine Manual).

Really folks, it will help a lot... and it will cut down the number of emails and message board posts which the moderators have to answer.
