There are a number of resources for information about using Imagix 4D.

User Guide / Reference

The on-line User Guide provides detailed information about managing projects and data collection, a description of the tool's underlying data model, and an overview of the display windows. There are detailed sections about several of Imagix 4D's unique features - advanced graphical querying and analysis, the data flow based static analysis, delta analysis of structural differences between software versions, extensive software metrics, and automated document generation. A Getting Started section walks you, step by step, through the process of loading your code into the tool.

Built-In Tutorial

The best starting point for learning about Imagix 4D and its capabilities is to take its built-in tour. The tour demonstrates the tool's features, and shows you how to use them to solve typical development problems. You're introduced to the display windows, and are able to experiment with them while being guided through their use. The tour is also a useful reference resource, enabling you to review particular aspects of Imagix 4D's user interface once you've started using the tool.

Help System

In addition, Imagix 4D's Help System includes both Tool Tips (Balloon Help) and a much more detailed Context Sensitive Help. You may soon determine that the full Tool Tips is unnecessary, and limit tool tip displays to just icons and possibly control widgets. But you'll find that the Context Sensitive Help, which is available through the F1 key for all windows, remains very useful even as you become more experienced with Imagix 4D.
