What parts of this guide should I read?

Anyone who has looked at the table of contents has surely come to the conclusion that reading this manual from cover to cover, is an unreasonable (and fortunately unnecessary) task.

This user guide is designed to be helpful to a wide variety of users, from the very experienced, to the novice user. Since different users will have different needs, each section of this manual is self-contained. The user is not expected to have read all of the previous sections of the manual to find the instructions useful.

To help determine what should be read before starting to work with KWord, a suggested reading list for three levels of users is given below.

If each of these sections is read before starting to use KWord, using KWord will be easier.

These sections will help with the basic information. As other specific questions or situations arise, the other sections of this manual can be used as a reference.
