[top] Terms Used in This Manual

Dragging is holding down the left mouse button and moving the on-screen cursor.
Clicking is pressing and releasing the left or right mouse button once.
Double-clicking is quickly pressing the left mouse button twice.
Shift+clicking is pressing the left mouse button while you hold one of the Shift keys down. This is typically used to select multiple objects.

[top] Conventions Used in This Manual

Throughout this manual, conventions are used to clarify certain keyboard techniques and to help you distinguish certain types of text (new terms and text that you type, for example).

Information you type is in boldface. This rule applies to individual letters, numbers, and text strings, but not to special keys such as Enter (Return), Tab, Esc, Shift or Ctrl.

Key1+Key2 is used to indicate a command that requires you to press Key1 with Key2. For example, Shift+a (although not a command) indicates the uppercase letter "A".

New terms appear in italic. Italic text is used also for emphasis, as in "Don't unplug your computer at this point."

ALL CAPS is used to represent disk directories, file names and application names.

Text that is displayed on-screen but is not part of the RTM-Worx application, such as dialog and message box text, appears in a special monospace typeface.

[Apply] is used to represent command buttons. The text is not always visible, especially on the Control panel, you may have to enlarge the panel to see the text.

Menu|Choice represents menu commands. Rather than using the phrase "choose the Archive command from the Project menu," this manual use the convention "choose Project|Archive."

[top] Break With Procedure As You See Fit

That's okay. Use whatever you're faimiliar of comfortable with to attain a goal. If you prefer to access the main menu for commands as you begin your personal adventures with RTM-Worx, go for it.
