  • General Overviews: The general overviews can be read by using ViSta's interactive help panel system, or by obtaining "How to Use ViSta", the printed version available online.

  • Context Sensitive: The specific context-dependent details can be obtained from HELP BUTTONS and HELP ITEMS found throughout ViSta.Essentially every graphic, text and desktop window has its own help button which provides you help for the use of the window and the interpretation of its contents.
