The Idea of Reuse - The idea of reuse, and how pWord makes it simple.
Reuse in pWord is as simple as placing common items under a common theme. For instance... all of your websites could go under a title such as "WebSites". If it's financial, the records would go under the name of the owner or facility, the department, the type of payment or receivables etc... By organizing the items under a tree, it gives you control over the data, and allows you to find it easier in a mountain of data.
The Idea of Manupulation
Manipulating nodes requires you to practice with the right click button's "get node" menu item. Get node get the selected node and all sub nodes. This allows you to put the node or insert the node where ever you please in the treeview.
Once you give something a name, if you need that node, and all of it's subnodes, it's possible to transfer that information with pWord. Just right click and select "Get Node" it will get the node and then it will allow you to either place that node into another node, or insert it in front of another node.
Practice makes perfect, so try make a few nodes, then use the get node after right click the node. Then use the put node in or insert node into and see what happens. You can manipulate huge chunks of data quickly and easily, and reorganize the structure of your tree. Once you have a structure you are happy with, you can export the data to xml and save your data to a pwd file.
The Idea of Manupulation
The left right control allows you to create many different treesViews. Depending on the topic, they may or may not relate to another treeView. As you add more and more treeViews, you can find them by select the left and right arrows on the control.
The AutoHide Feature
The Auto Hide feature is a very powerful tool. Using the autohide feature enables you to work on other applications, and transfer data using pWord. This is especially important when using remote sessions. pWord allows for complex manipulation and drag and drop operations to be performed to applications that reside underneath pWord. Since pWord hides automatically, it allows the drag and drop operation or copy and paste operation to proceed while pWord is hiding.
Once you move the mouse to the right side of the screen, the pWord app will reappear. This is correct behavior for this application. If you have other important work to perform that causes conflict, you can minize pWord.
If you minimize pWord while it is in autohide mode, pWord will disappear from teh task bar and hide in the notifcation area. When it does this, you'll have to call pWord from the notifcation area and select show to use it again.
Opening and Saving pWord Files
Opening and Saving files to pWord is as simple as selecting the file menu items and Selecting Save or if you have already saved a file you can open it by selecting Open. Once you have completed that operation, you will need to select a filename, or enter a filename. The suffix of any pWord file should end in .pwd for password. Since pWord is a password and scriptiong utility. Be careful not to confuse the export xml feature with the save feature, as you may lose all your work.
