All;
I think the old version of the MAPICS manuals, Run Book, Reference, Logic,
were slightly better.  The only problem with those was knowing which manual
to use, but once you figured what you can find where, you could get your
answer right away.

When they decided to merge the Run Book and Reference manual together into
one book, I think they didn't take enough time to lay it out logically.  You
want to learn about pick lists, you should be able to go to the 'pick list'
section and learn EVERYTHING there is to know about pick lists.  Also, on
the CD version, if a 'page' reads 'go to page 3-112', I would like to do
that by clicking the text.

The first version on CD was horrible, but they have gotten better over time.
My suggestion is to make your own reference document and take advantage of
the capability to add your own help using MUI.
