Notes on WP onscreen help
- WP Mac has a great deal of onscreen help, in addition to the many experts here. As reference, here are some of the resources available to you. Especially, QuickHelp seems to have been forgotten, a shame since it's so good.
WordPerfect Guide: Choose this from the program's Help menu, and get an interactive dialog with Topics, Index and Search buttons.
WordPerfect Help: Entirely separate from the Guide, this dialog offers How Do I, Index, Glossary, Keystrokes, Menu Bars, and Ruler Bars and Palettes. Searchable.
WordPerfect Macro Help: taught me most of what I know. Searchable topics are perfect as a reference.
Balloon Help: has its uses. Even in the OSX era, this simple, context based help feature can be surprisingly useful, for example when learning complex dialog boxes.
WP QuickHelp, an entirely separate help facility, features a very sophisticated search with ten (!) Boolean operators to define your search with surgical precision. The Sheepshaver-WordPerfect Install ships with this. Find it on the Script menu near the right side of the menu bar. Also available at WPMac > Files > QuickHelp.zip.
