Tuesday's Tips provide brief how-to's to help you learn to use the Legacy Family Tree software with new tricks and techniques.
Help Toolbar (Beginner)
The Help Toolbar is pretty self-explanatory but I do want to point out a few things. My Help Toolbar has an icon on it that yours probably doesn't have and that is the Help Language. I have more than one Help File installed (English and German). If you are bilingual and want to do this you can learn how HERE.
The Help Index brings you to the main Help File. Normally you will use the Help button that is located on the exact screen you are working on which will take you to the right place in the Help File without having to do a search. However, if you go to the main Help Index you will see some cool things.
Over on the right side are links to some general help topics that I think you will want to explore. I also want you to notice the Favorites tab over on the left. You can easily save your favorite articles here so they are easy to find. You can also print articles using the Print button.
The Support Ticket link is where you go to report a problem to us. If you have a suggestion for a new feature you would use the Request Feature link. The Tech Support link will take you to our Knowledge Base of articles on our website which is searchable.
The Download Update link will take you to the download page on our website. If you have Legacy Deluxe, it is easier and more convenient to download updates from the Legacy Home tab.
Next time we will look at the Quick Access Toolbar.
