Typographical Conventions

This help file uses consistent visual cues and text formats so that you can interpret it accurately.

<KEY> The name of a key on the computer keyboard to be used.  For example, <F4> means press the key labeled "F4."  It does not mean type F followed by 4.

<KEY1+KEY2> When two keys are joined by a "plus" sign, this means you should press both keys at the same time.  For example, <ALT+F4> means you should press the <ALT> key, and while holding it down, press the <F4> key, then release both keys.

bold Characters printed in bold represent a value that should be typed exactly as it is shown or selected from a provided list.

italic Words shown in italic are place holders for information you need to provide.  For example, if you are directed to type file name, enter the actual name for a file instead of the term "file name."

underline Clicking on an underlined word or phrase will cause you to jump to a different topic relating to that word or phrase.

"quoted" Items contained in quotes are names of items in the Menu Bar or Windows controls that are not described elsewhere.

"Label1 | Label2" Labels separated by the pipe symbol specify how to navigate through the Menu Bar items to trigger a desired action.  For example, "File | Open" means click on the "File" label to open the File Menu, then click on the "Open" label.  This combination of actions opens a file.
