It would be worth spending some time becoming familiar with the toolbar buttons. Tooltips describing the function of the buttons will appear as soon as you move the mouse over them. Toolbars provide rapid access to some of the more popular menu items.
You will find some drop-down combination boxes on the toolbars. They are explained in a later section.
To make life even easier, shortcut keys are available for the most-used options. All of the shortcut keys are shown along with their corresponding menu items. You might like to remember some of them, as they will be handy while you are typing into the editor and you don't want to leave the keyboard.
