About the Help and Reference Book

Document path Reference Contents > Introduction > About the Help and Reference Book

Help and the Reference Book for Caliach Vision derive from the same source and are constructed using a number of software technologies. It is available in HTML form that can be viewed interactively within Caliach Vision itself or by using an Internet Browser. It is also available in Adobe Acrobat PDF form to be viewed and printed by Adobe Acrobat Reader. Hyperlinks are numerous and so it is recommended that it be viewed on computer in either help or pdf form rather than printed.

The Reference Book in PDF form contains many illustrations that are not included in the Help version. If you are viewing the Reference Book using Adobe Acrobat graphics are best viewed at 167%. Printing to any reasonable resolution printer will show the graphics at 60% true size.

The Reference Book is subject-based. It is structured around the program's Task and Menu structure with HTML pages for each window, menu and taskbar associated with a task. Those not associated with a specific task can be found in the General section.

See the Help Menu topic for an introduction to using the help system.

Generally, it is a good idea to review the Menu of a topic first. In many cases general introductory information is provided in the Menu help. You can also use this topic to navigate through the links to the menu function of interest.

Throughout the Help and Reference Book special notes, warnings and tips are included in the following form.
