Pop-ups, Videos

Pop-ups: When you click green text, you will see a pop-up dialog. We use pop-ups for low-level information, terminology and reminders of less complex topics.

Videos: Click the image to play the video. Note: from January 2021, videos in SWF file-type are not supported by Adobe®.

SWF videos are being replaced with the MP4 file-type videos for the on-line help, and with the GIF file-type videos for the off-line help (MechDesigner.CHM). If you find a Video that does not play, please email us, and we can replace it with a video of the correct file-type.
