The Help Agent, Tips, and Extended Tips provide help while you work.

The Help Agent

The Help Agent starts automatically when you are performing a task that might require some assistance. The Help Agent appears in a small window in a corner of the document. To view the help for the task, click inside the Help Agent window.

Tips provide you with the names of toolbar buttons. To display a tip, rest the pointer over a toolbar button until the name of the button appears.

Tips are also displayed for some elements in a document, such as chapter names when you scroll through a long document.

Extended tips provide a brief description about buttons and commands. To display an extended tip, press Shift+F1, then point to a button or command.
