1.1 Using the SPIN guide

Posted by admin on 08/09/2015

1.1      Using the SPIN guide


When you first enter the guide window, none of the content menus are active. To activate a content menu you simply press one of the tab titles. To enter one of the guide documents of the current tab, you then press the title of the document of your interest in the content menu. You can navigate between the document title lines by using the mouse.



The underlying documents of each guide tab are similar to the sections in the printed SPIN Guide, and a few of the documents can also be accessed from the on-line help (see section “1.3 Using the SPIN application”). To change to another guide document you simply press the tab title of interest and select a document from the activated content menu. Pressing the “Close Guide” button closes the guide window and returns you to the window you were in, before you entered the guide.
