"Miriam says . . ."

As curator of her regional arboretum, Miriam has been carefully cataloging the arboretum's collection with estimated ages, current height, and of course with photographs.  "I want the next generation to be able to see what this place looked like in its younger days."  With The Compleat Botanica, developing her catalog is easy and fun.

Did you know?

Q:  How do I add items to the list of tags to print?

A:  Whenever you add a new specimen to your collection, the Tag needs printing box is checked.  Later when you use the Print tags . . . command, those items that are checked will be included in the list of tags to print.  When the tags have been printed, the Tag needs printing box has its check removed.

You re-include an item in the list by simply checking the box again. 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.
