Legacy 101 - How to Find Help

There are a lot of different ways to find help while using the Legacy Family Tree software program. Below are seven easy ways for your to get started.

1) On every screen in Legacy there is a Help button. If you click the Help button it will take you to the appropriate location in the Help File for that topic so that you don't have to search for what you are looking for.

2) Legacy 9 now includes the PDF version of the User's Guide. In previous versions this was a separate purchase. In your order confirmation email there are two links, one to download the program and one to download the PDF version of the User's Guide.

7) You can find shortcuts to many of the helps by either selecting the Help tab on the main toolbar or by selecting the Legacy Home tab and then looking over to the right under the Support heading.

You can get most of your questions answered using these tools. If there is a question that you haven't been able to find the answer to, or you have a suggestion for a new feature you would like to see, you can use the email links on the Help Toolbar or the Legacy Home tab to contact us.
