This command is a link to the Pointwise HTML user manual — the documentation you are reading now. Selecting User Manual from the Help menu will launch your system's default web browser and navigate to the main landing page for the Pointwise user manual. By default, this command will open the Pointwise hosted online documentation. If your machine is not internet connected, Pointwise will detect this and load the included offline copy of the user manual.


Note: It is recommended you use Pointwise's online user manual as it will be the most accurate and up-to-date documenation available. However, be aware that the online documenation may not be in sync with your installation of Pointwise if you are running an older version of the sofware.

If loading the online documentation is not preferrable, you may change this option in the Edit, Preferences panel. Under the Miscellaneous frame, you will find the Use Online Documentation checkbox. This may be toggled on or off to suit your needs.
