Pathagoras essential operations can be summarized as a simple 'pointer' system. A 'book' is simply a pointer to a folder. So is a SmartPath and a DropDown List. Therefore, once you have set a SmartPath, shelved a document assembly book or created a DropDown List, you can easily navigate to the source folder by taking advantage of the pointer. You no longer have to navigate to it.
The ease by which Pathagoras allows your access to your source clauses is surpassed by no program. No document stored within a Pathagoras control is more that one or two clicks away.
Being aware of the tools illustrated below will save you and your staff countless time daily (not to mention eliminating the frustration of trying to remember where in the computer or on the network things are located.)
Remember that when you are assembling a document or selecting an item from a DropDown List, you have only called a copy of the document, not the original. Whenever you want to edit the original text, or to add or delete files from the source folder, follow the steps outlined below to quickly access the folder.
Here is a listing of just some of the navigation tools you may find handy:
SmartPath (number + <Alt-G>
QuickLink (term + <Alt-G>
Prefix (prefix + <Alt-G>)
DropDown List (click 'Open Folder' at bottom of list)
Instant Database (set a variable to a folder)
