SmartPlant Isometrics user assistance makes information available as you perform tasks. You can access different kinds of information any time that you are running the software, such as narrative descriptions of a command or step-by-step instructional material.
User's Guides in PDF format are an accessible, flexible, and fully searchable alternative to Help. The information found in the User's Guides is also available from the online Help. The User's Guides delivered with the software are located in the following locations:
SmartPlant Isometrics: c:\Program Files\SmartPlant\Isometrics\resdlls\0009
SmartPlant Spoolgen: c:\Program Files\SmartPlant\Spoolgen\resdlls\0009
You can also find copies of the user's guides in the Help folder on the Intergraph SmartPlant Isometrics product CD. To view these PDF documents, you must have Acrobat Reader with Search version 3.0 or higher or some other comparable PDF reader software installed on your computer.
You can download the latest version of the Acrobat Reader from the Adobe web site. After you have installed the Acrobat Reader, you can open files individually using File > Open in the Acrobat Reader with Search application.
SmartPlant Isometrics Help is a complete online reference tool accessible at any time. A structured table of contents, an index, and full-text search capabilities provide easy access to Help topics.

For example, if you need to perform a certain task, search for and display the topic. You can move or resize your application and Help windows so that they are next to each other.
