About this document

This document is a follow-up on the LLD prepared during the Analysis Phase. This is a more detailed document and its primary objective is to serve as blueprint for the members of the development team who would work on this project. Besides getting into details, this document also gives a brief introduction to the concepts and terms of film story writing that have been used in this document. This is for the benefit of the development team who would not be familiar with these terms. How to read this document The sheer bulk of this document can make it quite overwhelming to read and hence it’s important to read it in the correct way. The opening chapter of the document 'An Overview' gives a run-through of the Word Processor Application including its objectives. The chapter explains some fundamental concepts of the software. It then briefly touches on each module of the system. This chapter is ideal for those wishing to familiarize themselves with the system without getting into the specifics. The subsequent chapters contain an in-depth and technical description of the working of each module. These chapters explain the working of each and every screen and business rule of the module. This is done through the use of flowcharts and supporting text explanations. In addition to this, each chapter contains the user interface of that module presented through mockups or wireframes. These chapters are meant for those wishing to obtain a thorough understanding of the project.

An Overview

Developer's Blueprint For Word Processor Application Page 5 of 114


Introduction and Concepts a) Project Objective To build a word processor application for screen writing and novel writing for the web and desktop. The word processor would be a platform to allow creation for a number of different specialized writing formats. The application will be http://www.storylink.com.

contained

within

the

existing

community

site,

b) Project Overview There would be two versions of the word processor application – desktop and web. The web version as mentioned earlier would be a part of the StoryLink site (http://www.storylink.com). Hence only members / users of Story Link would have access to this application. The web and desktop versions would come with default (or basic) templates* for writing. Users would be able to create documents* based on these templates. They would also be able to create their own custom templates*. One of the central features of this application would be the ability for users to collaborate with other users to develop a document. The application would also come with nifty tools such as a SpellCheck and SmartList (auto-complete). There shall also be a web-based Administration Panel through which the administrator would be able to manage the application. The application shall be in English however there will be a provision to easily add other languages in future. * For definitions of these terms please read ‘Documents, Templates and Elements’.

c) Web and Desktop versions As mentioned, the application would have a desktop and a web version. Each user would have access to both desktop and web versions. A user can always transfer his documents from the web to his desktop and vice versa. The desktop version needs cannot operate on its own. For various purposes such as activation, etc, it will need to access StoryLink from time to time. The working and features of both web and desktop versions shall be the same unless otherwise mentioned.

Developer's Blueprint For Word Processor Application Page 6 of 114


d) Link with StoryLink Since the web version works within StoryLink, it is important to discuss how the application would interface with StoryLink. The application would not have any users of its own, but would be accessed only by users of StoryLink. Hence these users would login through StoryLink. The application itself shall have no option to login. Similarly, there shall be no ‘member area’ in the front-end of the application or a ‘member manager’ in the Administration Panel of the application. To access the web version StoryLink users shall have to click on links in StoryLink which shall take them to a page where there shall be a button to ‘launch the application’. Clicking on this, a new browser would open up and would display the Landing Page of the application. From here on, the user would use the application within that browser window. The application shall not have any branding of StoryLink. On completion, the user would close the application which would result in the browser window being closed and the user returning to the main window. On launching the application, StoryLink shall have to pass basic details of the user such as user_id, username, etc that may be required for the application. These can be done through session, querystring, ‘post’, etc. Details of this would be worked out with the technical team at StoryLink during the Development Phase. It is important to note that the application shall at no point of time pass any data back to StoryLink. Note: The page from where the user would launch the application and the passing of data to the application is not within the scope of the project and has to be managed by the technical team at StoryLink. The receiving of this data shall be managed by the application (and hence by Vybrant Technology Solutions).

e) Standalone Version The client has also requested an option to build the application as a standalone, i.e. without being a part of StoryLink. Here too, there shall be a desktop and web version however none will interact with the StoryLink site. For the standalone version certain extra modules will have to be developed which in the StoryLink setup we were depending on StoryLink to provide. This has been further explained in the chapter “Standalone Option”. The formal proposal being sent along with this document contains a price and timeline each for the StoryLink and standalone options.

f) Actors There shall be two types of actors in the system: 1. Users: These are members or users of StoryLink who shall also have access to the word processor application. 2. Administrator: This is the person (typically at StoryLink’s end) who would manage the application through a web-based Administration Panel.

Developer's Blueprint For Word Processor Application Page 7 of 114


g) Documents, Templates and Elements The entire application revolves around the use of documents, elements and templates. Hence it is important to explain each of these and the relation between them. Documents: The actual files on which the user would write. Documents may or may not be based on a template. Templates: A blank document as a starting point for creating derived from the elements (see would differ from another solely

having a certain preset structure which would be used a new document. The preset structure would solely be definition below) in the document. Hence, one template based on its elements.

Typically each template would be for a different type of writing for e.g. Screenplay, Stage Play, TV Sitcom, etc. 

Basic Templates: Those provided by default by the application. These cannot be edited or deleted by the user.

Custom Templates: Those created by the user himself.

Elements: These are particular types of data entered into the document which need to have their own formatting. Formatting or settings would be in terms of font sizes, color, indentation, alignment, etc. E.g. of elements would be Scene Heading, Action, Character, etc Note: There is no ‘element master’ as such. This means that two elements with the same name in different templates need not have identical settings. Chart showing relation between templates and elements Template Screenplay

Element Heading

TV Sitcom

Element Settings Font: verdana, black, 10 px, bold. Alignment: etc, etc. Indentation: etc, etc. Font: arial, blue, 9 px, bold. Alignment: etc, etc. Indentation: etc, etc. Font: verdana, red, 10 px, bold. Alignment: etc, etc. Indentation: etc, etc. Font: courier, blue, 9.5 px, underline. Alignment: etc, etc. Indentation: etc, etc. Font: arial, purple, 6 px, normal. Alignment: etc, etc. Indentation: etc, etc.

As you can see from the above, a template is basically a collection of elements. Hence, editing a template basically means editing its elements (adding new elements, deleting existing elements or changing the settings of existing elements) Developer's Blueprint For Word Processor Application Page 8 of 114

Document management by user

Creating a Document   

(1) A document being created from no template. (2) A document being created from a basic template. (3) A document being created from a custom template.

Saving / Editing a Document 

A document can always be saved as itself. This is not shown in the above diagram.

‘Save As’ a Document 

(5) A document being saved as another document.

Deleting a Document  A document can also be deleted (not shown in the above diagram)

Developer's Blueprint For Word Processor Application Page 9 of 114


Template management by user

Creating a Custom Template  (6) A new custom template can be created by opening a document based on an existing basic or custom template, making changes to it and saving it as a new custom template. Note: o It’s not possible for the user to create a new basic template. All templates created by the user would be custom templates. o The original template based on which the document had first been created does not get affected.

Saving / Editing a Custom Template  (4) A custom template can be edited by opening a document based on that template, making changes to it and saving it again as that template. Note: o A template itself cannot be opened. Only a document based on a template can be opened. As a result, a template can never be edited directly. One would have to open a document based on that template, edit it and save it back as that template (process 4 in the above diagram). o Saving / Editing a template shall not affect any of the documents previously made using that template. Only the current and future documents made using that template would be affected. o A basic template cannot be edited.

“Save As” a Custom Template  (6) A basic or custom template can be saved as another template by opening a document using that template, making changes to it and saving it a new custom template. Note: o A template itself cannot be opened. Only a document based on a template can be opened. As a result, a template can never be edited directly. One would have to open a document based on that template, edit it and save it back as that template (process 4 in the above diagram). o The original template based on which the document had been created shall not be affected by this.

Deleting a Custom Template  A custom template can always be deleted (not shown in diagram) Note: o Deleting a template shall not affect any of the documents previously made using that template.

Template management by Administrator (not shown in the above diagram)

Creating a Basic Template  The administrator can create new basic templates through the Administration Panel. On doing so the new basic templates shall be available to all web users. Saving / Editing a Basic Template  The administrator can also edit a basic template. The edited template shall be available to all web users. Note: Saving / Editing a basic template shall not affect any of the documents previously made by any of the users using that template. Only the current and future documents made using that template would be affected. o The older version of the basic template shall no longer be available to any of the users.

o

Developer's Blueprint For Word Processor Application Page 10 of 114


Deleting a Basic Template  The administrator can delete a basic template. The deleted template shall no longer be available to any web user. Note: o Deleting a basic template shall not affect any of the documents previously made by any of the users using that template.

Note: The administrator cannot access and hence edit or delete any custom template of any user. File formats of Templates and Documents Templates are basically documents without any content in them. Hence documents are self contained in terms of their structure and formatting. This means that even if the document were to exist on its own without its template it would not lose any of its structure or formatting. Since the only difference between documents and templates is the difference in content, both are stored in the same file format – XML. Documents can also be exported to RTF and PDF formats. However, import from these formats shall not be possible.

h) Inheritance of Settings There are certain settings which determine how a document looks and these are set at different places or levels. The various levels are (from top to bottom):    

User Level Preferences Template Level Element Level Document Level

The setting at the lower level overrides any conflicting setting at the higher level. The settings that are found at more than one level are: 1. Setting: Page Setup Set at: Template Level, Document Level 2. Setting: Header / Footer Set at: User Level Preferences, Document Level 3. Setting: Font Settings Set at: User Level Preferences, Element Level, Document Level

Developer's Blueprint For Word Processor Application Page 11 of 114


The below diagram explains this better.

The above diagram shows the settings which exist at multiple levels. All the above settings are also there at the document level as explained earlier. Each of these levels have other settings also but these do not exist at any level and hence are not shown in this diagram As per the above, if a document is created without a template then it does not inherit any template or element level settings and hence in that case inherits the settings at the User Level Preference.

i) Language Support The current application is to be done in English, however future versions may be available in other languages such as Spanish, French and German. Hence support for multiple languages would be built-in right from the start. This would be done using Language Files. All text, form labels, screen messages, alerts, etc would be written in a single language file. In this way we can create different language versions by simply editing this file.

Developer's Blueprint For Word Processor Application Page 12 of 114


Menus (Front-end) The user would be interacting with the application only through the menu options available to him. Hence, it’s important to study the menu options as that would give us a complete understanding of the front-end (user’s end) of the application. Understanding how the menus have been explained below: The items in bold are the main menu options that the user would see. For e.g. the “File” menu option in MS Word. The indented items are the ones which appear in the menu list when the main menu option is clicked. For e.g. “New”, “Open”, Close” in the main menu “File” in MS Word. Word Processor (application name) 

About Gives information about the application. Also has a link to the End-User License Agreement.

Activate (only in desktop version) Would be used to activate the desktop application every 30 days so that it can continue being used.

Preferences User would set his default preferences here.

Quit Would close the application and return the user to the main window (web version). Incase of the desktop version it would simply close the application.

File  New Shows the user all the templates, user selects one and a new document is created based on that. User can also create a document without a template. 

Open Shows an ‘Open’ dialog box and the user can choose to open an exiting document from the web or from his desktop.

Open Recent Shows the user a list of the last 10 documents opened and user can choose from one of them.

Close Closes the current document.

Save Saves the current document.

Save As Allows the user to save the current document under a different name.

Page Setup The user can setup the page for the current document.

Print

Document Properties Shows the user standard file properties of the document (name, last modified, etc).

Edit  Undo Undo the last keystroke. 

Redo Redoes the next keystroke.

Cut Cuts the selected text.

Copy Copies the selected text.

Paste Pastes the copied / cut text at the current cursor position or on the selected text.

Delete Deletes the selected text.

Find & Replace Allows the user to find or find and replace text in the document.

Insert  Page Break Inserts a page break at the current cursor position. 

Page Numbers Inserts page numbers in the current document.

Bookmark Inserts a bookmark in the current cursor position.

Notes Inserts notes in the document. (sticky notes)

Card (Phase II)

Format  Elements User would select an element and put the document into that mode. Selected text or the text that he types from hereon would be as per the formatting of that element. 

Add Element It would allow the user to add an element to the current document.

Edit Elements User would be able to edit any of the elements that are part of this document.

Manage SmartList User would be able to edit a SmartList of any element of the current document.

Developer's Blueprint For Word Processor Application Page 14 of 114


Change Template User would be able to change the template of the current document to another template.

Font User would be able to edit the font settings (size, weight, color, etc) of the selected text.

Paragraph User would be able to edit the paragraph settings (alignment, numbering, etc) of the selected text.

Header & Footer The user would be able to insert / edit / delete a header and footer for the current document.

View  Script (Phase II) 

Outline (Phase II)

Cards (Phase II)

Show Ruler This would display the vertical and horizontal rulers. It would be a toggle option.

Show Invisibles This would show invisible formatting elements paragraph marks, etc. It would be a toggle option.

Toolbars This would show the sliding toolbar. It would be a toggle option.

Zoom This would be used to zoom in and out of the document.

Tools  Spell Check This would run the spell checker on the existing document. 

Thesauras (Phase II)

Smart Lists This option would enable the user to edit the smart lists (auto complete).

Track Edits (Phase II)

Mores and Continues This would insert the “Mores…”and “…Continues” at the end of one page and beginning of the next if the text flows into the next page. It would be a toggle option.

Scene Numbers This would insert scene numbers into the document. It would be a toggle option.

Collaborate (only for web version) This option would allow the user to collaborate the current document with other users.

Developer's Blueprint For Word Processor Application Page 15 of 114


Window This would allow the user to switch between currently opened documents. Help This would launch the help section.

Developer's Blueprint For Word Processor Application Page 16 of 114


Administration Panel Like the Front-end, the Administration Panel (Admin Panel) shall also be located within the general Admin Panel of StoryLink. Hence there shall be no login, etc. The Administrator (Admin) of StoryLink shall manage the word processor application. The Admin Panel would have the following modules: Template Manager Through this module the Admin shall manage basic templates. This would mean creating new templates and editing and delete existing ones. Through this the Admin shall also be able to manage the elements and Smart Lists within the templates. Reports The Admin shall be able to generate some basic reports through this module. Modules for Standalone Option If the client chooses to go in for a standalone option (i.e. without StoryLink), then the following modules shall be needed in the Admin Panel:   

Admin Login Member Manager Admin Change Password

This and the other admin modules have been described in detail in the chapter Administration Panel.

Open a Recent Document

Shall show a list of up to last 10 documents opened. These would be offline and online. Offline and online documents would be distinguished with an icon (not shown in the screenshot).

Developer's Blueprint For Word Processor Application Page 19 of 114


However, irrespective of where the documents are, the documents shown will be those which have been opened from that version. For e.g. If the last two documents opened by the desktop version were from the desktop and online, then both these should show in the recent documents of the desktop version. However, it’s not necessary that these documents also show up as recent documents for the online version. If no document has ever been opened from that version, it shall show “No Recent Document” below “Open a Recent Document”

When a document is clicked Documents in the “Open a Recent Document” list shall show without the application running a check to actually see if they are there or not. Hence, when the user clicks on a document a check is done to see if the document exists in its stored location. If exists:  Landing Page disappears  Document is opened If not:  Landing Page remains  If Web, then the below error message is shown: o “The document ‘name of document’ cannot be found online.”  If Desktop, then the below error message is shown: o “’Full path of document’ cannot be found” The alert message would also have an “Ok” button clicking on which the alert message would disappear. As long as the alert message is there, everything in the background is disabled. Developer Notes: Separate checks here for online and offline. The above is for both but I think we need to treat both separately. The desktop access to StoryLink shall have go to a common document and hence will not come here. 4.

Create from Template

Shall show the following templates in the below given order: 

Default template of the user

Developer's Blueprint For Word Processor Application Page 20 of 114


 

List of all basic templates List of custom templates

Notes: o All the above templates shall be from the same location as the application. For e.g. if the user is using a desktop version, then all the templates on the desktop shall be shown. Similarly, if the user is using the web version, then all templates available on the web shall be shown.

5.

Each of the above 3 types of templates shall be separated by a horizontal line “----“.

o

After the default template (if exists) all the basic templates shall be shown in alphabetical order. After that all the custom templates (if exist) shall be shown in alphabetical order.

o

The default template (if exists) shall be from either the basic or custom templates. However, since it’s already being shown at the top, it shall again not be shown as part of the basic or custom template list.

Offline Shall have two radio buttons for Online and Offline. If Online is selected: The list below shall show all the documents this user has in his online account. If he is using a desktop version and there is no Internet connection available, then automatically the machine shall try and establish a connection. Also when the ‘online’ radio button is selected, then the ‘Browse’ button shall be disabled. Once the documents show in the list, the user would select one and double-click to open. He could also select the document and click on “Open” to open it. On doing either of the above, the system shall run a check to see if:  The document is genuinely an xml document (it may be that a non-xml document has simply been given an xml extension)  The xml document is a valid word processor document (the user may be having xml documents which are not word processor documents.) If the above check passes then:  Landing Page disappears.  Document opens. If above check fails then:

Developer's Blueprint For Word Processor Application Page 21 of 114


 

Landing Page remains User would see an error saying “The selected file is not a valid word processor document”.

The alert message would also have an “Ok” button clicking on which the alert message would disappear. As long as the alert message is there, everything in the background is disabled.

If Offline is selected: The list below shall disappear, the “Open” button shall be disabled and instead the “Browse” button shall be enabled. Clicking it would show the standard ‘File Open’ dialogue box through which the user would select a document. In the dialogue box for the dropdown “Files of Type” we shall only be showing “XML Files” and hence only XML files shall be shown. On selecting a document and clicking “Open” in the dialogue box, the document would open. However, before doing so, the application would perform the same checks that it would perform when opening an online document (see above).

The default selection of the radio button shall be as per the version of the application. That is, if the user is using a desktop version, then by default the “offline” radio button shall be selected and vice versa. Exit Points 1.

Word Processor > Activate This menu option shall be used to activate the desktop edition. It shall be disabled for the online version. It shall remain enabled in desktop when desktop edition is deactivated. It is also enabled in desktop when no document is open. On clicking this option, the following can happen: 

If it has been less than 30 days since the application was activated It shall show an alert saying “You do not need to activate at this moment. Your activation is valid until <date>”

If it has been 30 or more days since the application was activated Application shall open the activation screen and attempt to activate. Here there shall be a textbox for username and password however both would have been previously entered. This screen shall now begin the process to activate. 

No Internet connection

<bookmark; shall be clear later>

Pass control to machine to try and connect. Once Internet connection is detected, system shall automatically try and resume activation process. 

Cannot connect to StoryLink The application shall try to connect to StoryLink for upto 30 seconds. If it cannot do so, then the below error message shall be shown in an alert box on top of the above activation screen. “At this moment we cannot connect to StoryLink. We request you to try again a bit later.” Alert message shall have an “Ok” button clicking on which the screen disappears and highlight moves back to activation screen. On the activation screen the Username, Password textboxes shall get enabled and Activation button shall also get enabled. Cancel button shall remain enabled.

Connected to StoryLink; Login details incorrect The below error message shall be shown in an alert box on top of the above activation screen. “It seems the login details you have entered are incorrect. Please try again or go to the StoryLink to try and retrieve your correct login details.” Alert message shall have an “Ok” button clicking on which the screen disappears and highlight moves back to activation screen. On the activation screen the Username, Password textboxes shall get enabled and Activation button shall also get enabled. Cancel button shall remain enabled.

Connected. Login details correct. Activation Failed. The below error message shall be shown in an alert box on top of the above activation screen.

Developer's Blueprint For Word Processor Application Page 29 of 114


“It seems that you are not entitled yet to use the desktop version of word processor. You are requested to contact StoryLink for further details.” Alert message shall have an “Ok” button clicking on which the screen disappears and highlight moves back to activation screen. On the activation screen the Username, Password textboxes shall get enabled and Activation button shall also get enabled. Cancel button shall remain enabled. 

Connected. Login details correct. Activation Succeeded. The user shall see a screen saying: “Congratulations! Your word processor desktop edition has been activated. You can begin to use it right away.” Here the user shall also have an option to go in for auto-validation henceforth (if this option hasn’t already been selected for him) 

If user has auto-activation turned on Do nothing

If user does not have auto-activation turned on There shall be a button saying “Make Activation Automatic” 

If user chooses auto-activation option He will be shown the below alert message: “Your ‘Activation Preference’ has been made automatic.

If user does not choose auto-activation option Do nothing

The above happens when the user clicks on the Word Processor > Activate option. However, an activation process also runs every time the desktop application is run. This is given below. When application is started, check is run: 

If never been activated before, then Activate for first use. Activation Screen appears - (See “Activate Screen for first use” screen) User then enters his username and password and the process resumes from the step marked as “bookmark”.

If has been activated at least once before, then: Application will check if it has been more than 30 days since the last time it was activated (need to work out the logic) 

If it hasn’t been 30 or more days: Start application.

If it has been 30 or more days: Process resumes from the step marked as “bookmark”.

Format (Main Menu)

Developer's Blueprint For Word Processor Application Page 75 of 114


Format > Elements This would actually not be within the Format menu, but outside along with the Font toolbar as a dropdown. However for the purpose of this document its being treated as an item under the Format main menu. This drop down would show a list of all the elements that are available for the selected template. Note: Incase if a document has been opened without being based on a template or a document has been opened from a custom template which does not have any elements, then the Elements dropdown shall not have any values and will simply show “No Elements Available”.

When the user selects a portion of text and selects an element from the Elements dropdown, then that portion shall be formatted as per the selected element. Any formatting that portion of text may have had (it may have been tagged to another element or may have been formatted using the font toolbar) will be removed. A user may also simply select an element without having selected any text. In that case the element shall be applied at the current cursor position (not on all the existing text that is there after the cursor, but on all text that the user will now type after the cursor location). For each element it is specified as to what the next element shall be. This next element is applied when the user hits the “Return” key when typing text on the old element. Automatically after the Return key whatever text is entered is formatted as per the next element. Note: The user always has the option of changing this by selecting the text and applying an element from the Element dropdown.

When the Return key is hit and the next element is applied, automatically the Element dropdown shall show that element as default. This would even happen when the user selects a text or places his cursor within some text in the document. Automatically the element for that text would become the default in the Element dropdown. On a general note, the value in the Element dropdown shall always reflect the element where the cursor is. Note: A portion of text which has been formatted by an element, if modified by the sliding font bar shall still show the original element in the Element dropdown when the cursor is placed with that text. However, if the user selects a portion of text to which an element had never been applied, then the Element dropdown would show “No Element” however the user would always be able to go and select an element from that dropdown and apply it to the selected piece of text.

To enable a user to remove an elements formatting from a portion of text, there will be another item in the Elements dropdown that shall appear last after all the elements. It will be “Remove Element”. On selecting this, whatever text had been selected by the cursor shall get untagged from whatever element they were tagged to. The Elements dropdown shall now show “No Element”.

The purpose of this is to tell the system which text portions formatted as per the elements in the old template are now to be formatted as per which elements of the new template. Old Elements (shall come on the left unlike screen) Shall list all the elements of the current template (if exists) New Elements (shall come on the right unlike screen) Shall list all the elements of the selected template. Matching Unlike what is shown on the screen, only the new elements pane shall have sorting (up and down arrows) If the user finds that an element in the old template matches with an element in the new template, then he shall use the up & down arrows against that element in the new template pane to move it up or down until its along side the element in the old template. Once it is, he would check the Match checkbox alongside. On hitting “Save” all text in the elements of the old template shall now be formatted as per the selected element of the new template. This would only apply to the old & new element combinations which have been checked. In the above case if a portion of text in the old template had been formatted as per an element and then had been modified using the Format > Font option, it will now loose all that formatting and only be formatted as per the selected element of the new template. When an element in the old template has been mapped to an element in the new template, then it shall loose its own SmartList and adopt the SmartList of the new template. Basically, nothing of this element of the old template shall go over to the new template. Elements of the old template which have not been mapped shall move over to the new template. By this we mean that the new template shall now contain these elements. Text in the old template which was formatted as per these elements shall continue to be formatted the same way since their elements have also moved across to the new

Window Note: In the below section, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;documentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; refers to both documents and templates. The Window menu works here like in most applications. Through it, the user shall be able to swap windows with the application. All its sub-menus shall be the names of the documents currently open. The highlighted one shall be shown differently. If the user selects a document then that document shall be maximized within the window area of the application and the existing document shall be minimized. The highlight on the sub-menu shall shift to this new document. Clicking on the sub-menu item of the document which is already highlighted, will not have any effect. The user can also switch between document using Ctrl + Tab. At any given time, there has to be at least one document which is highlighted (unless if no document is open). There will not be any minimize icon for individual documents. Availability of this option: Web and Desktop. Disabled in desktop when desktop edition deactivated. It is disabled in both web and desktop when no document is open.

Screen Load Values The Help section shall be searchable in two ways:  

Menu-wise Text search

Menu-wise The user shall be able to access help menu-wise. The Help window would be divided into two panes. The left pane would contain menu and sub-menu links. Clicking on a menu link would open the links of the sub-menu under it. Clicking on the sub-menu link would display the help for that section in the right pane. Please see the screenshot above. Some sub-menus have multiple screens under them (e.g. Word Processor > Preference) and hence for these the help would be further divided based on screens. (Screen level help links would not be on the left pane, but only on the right pane). Text Search Users shall also be able to search for a help item by typing in a keyword. The system shall show links in the right pane to all help pages which contain that word. The search textbox shall appear above the menu links on the left pane. All the above Help categories shall contain text-based help and screenshots of the application. There shall be no video or audio. The Help section can also be accessed from individual screens. Each screen shall have a “?” icon beside the “X” icon. Clicking on this would launch the above Help window and directly open the help section for that screen / sub-menu. Exit Points 1.
