"Barbara says . . ."

Barbara joined her local native plant society in order to learn more about the local flora.  Within four months she was "volunteered" to head the computer task force because she was the only "techie" in the group.

"I'm starting to see our natives in a different way now that I've begun cataloging them," says Barbara.  Thanks to The Compleat Botanica, cataloging her region's flora was a snap.

Did you know?

Q:  Is there a way to change the column order after I've created my filter?

A:  Yes.  When a filter is first created, the column order of the specimen list is dependant upon the order in which the items were added to the filter.  To change this order later on, you can simply click and drag the column header of the specimen list. The ordering of columns will be retained and restored the next time you use the filter.  See the full story.

Tips . . .

  How to find answers using Pathfinder.

A:  You can use the Pathfinder facility to find answers to questions about the software. There are two basic approaches to using Pathfinder. If you simply want to browse through the available topics, use the tree-like table of contents in the left-hand window pane. Double-clicking any item with the green index symbol will display a list of related informational documents -- these are the items prefaced with the blue info symbol .

If you prefer to search for answers using the familiar search engine approach, you can type short phrases, questions, or keywords into the search box. Documents containing one or more of your keywords are listed in the results page inside the Pathfinder window.  see the full story.
