Online Documentation Improvements
This release provides significant improvements to
the IOF online documentation.
New Online Quick Reference Guide
The new QR command provides access to an online
replacement for the old Quick Reference Card. The QR command can be
entered from any IOF panel and dynamically adapts to display only the
features that are allowed for each user.
There are concise descriptions at the highest level but you can also
nest down to detailed HELP information for any topic.
HELP BR Command
Enter the BR command on a HELP menu panel to browse
all of the topics under that panel as a single document. You have all
the features of IOF browse, so you can issue FIND commands to locate
Action Area on HELP Menu Panels
In addition to menu numbers, there are now action
areas beside each selectable menu item on HELP menus. This allows you
to use the “S” line command to nest to lower level HELP panels.
Simplified HELP Panels
In addition to the enhancements above, many
individual HELP panels have been improved and simplified to make the
online HELP easier to use.
