After starting the program, the MedCalc program window appears, with a menu bar at the top of the screen containing the following headings:

On line help

At any moment during working with MedCalc on line help is available, e.g. information on a menu item, explanations on a dialog box, etc. After you press function key F1 the program displays a context-sensitive help text in a new window.

You can also call the help function by clicking MedCalc Help on the Help menu.

Help in dialog boxes

To get comprehensive help on the dialog box, click the Help button Help
To get help on any item in the dialog box: click the question mark Question mark in the title bar of the dialog box, and then click an item in the dialog box.

Screentips & quick help

Screentips for toolbars: an on-screen description of toolbar buttons is displayed when the pointer pauses on them.

While you are making a selection in the menu, a short description of the highlighted command is displayed in the status bar at the bottom of the window.
