The guide can be purchased at You can also print pages and books from the online help. See Printing the Online Help topic for more information.


Various font styles are used throughout the MapViewer documentation. Bold text indicates tab or menu commands, dialog names, and page names. Italic text indicates items within a dialog such as group box names, options, and field names. For example, the Import File dialog contains a Look in list. Bold and italic text may occasionally be used for emphasis. Often, hyperlinks replace the Bold text for commands and dialogs. Click the hyperlink to see the help page for the command or dialog.


Also, menu commands appear as Draw | Shape | Text. This means, "click on the Draw tab at the top of the ribbon bar, then click on Text within the Shape section." The first word is always the tab name, and the second word is the ribbon section. If applicable, the next word is a command group. The final word is the command. The Draw | Image | Filters | Spatial command is an example of a command contained in a command group.
