To help you work more efficiently in AnyOrder, we have prepared several short and highly illustrated instructional guides to supplement the help documentation that comes with the program. Although, the help documentation built into the program is still the most detailed and complete, it's often helpful to look at a topic from a different angle. To accomplish that, we've re-organized the material and added lots of illustrations.
Now and then, you'll notice that the guides will reference the help documentation that comes with the program. When it does, it will provide you with the index entries so you'll know how to look it up. Additionally, it will provide you with a "web link."
The web link will take you to an on-line version of the help documentation. It's the same as the help documentation that comes with the program except that it's found on the web. This makes it easy to get more details on a topic. It's just a matter of clicking a link, and the information will appear in your browser. (Note: that the on-line help system is for all Levels. Not all of the features may be available on your version of the program, but the basic information found in the documentation will apply to all Levels.)
All of the guides below are in Adobe's PDF format and can be viewed from your browser. You are also more than welcome to save a copy of the guides to your hard drive. (To do so, click on one of the links below, and when the PDF file appears, click on "Save a Copy.") Once you save the file, you can view it at any time by double-clicking on it. This is a good technique to use if you frequently reference the "web links" since the PDF viewer and the on-line help system are in separate windows.
