General Help

Pinyin Master has two built-in options for obtaining assistance for any given screen. The first is a sophisticated animated feature which actually demonstrates how each section is used. The second is standard text based assistance.

The specific help option can be set by clicking on the "more..." tab in the "Main Menu" screen. The default is the animated help feature.

An online User Guide is available and is also accessible on the Pinyin Master 2.0 CD.
