Local Help CHM file

You will need the 'Off-Line Help' when you want to use the F1 key to get contextual help for a command, dialog, or parameter.

See this topic 'How to download and use the 'Local-Help'.



We do not provide a hard-copy of the user manual.

There are three manuals you can download and use with a PDF browser.

Complete Help - Tutorials and Reference Help . This is a huge file. We recommend you review the help on-line.

These links are for help files MechDesigner and MotionDesigner menus and toolbars. These files are much smaller.


In addition to the complete manual in the 'Windows Help CHM format' [which you need in the correct path in order to get help with the F1 key], you can download the separate Reference Help for MechDesigner and MotionDesigner to use independently
