Some specific tasks


Any term of 3 characters or longer can be searched for using the Go/Search box on the left hand sidebar. Note that "Go" is the default action when you hit "enter". This can either take you directly to the named topic or offer to start it, so be sure to click "Search" if that is what you want.

Start a new topic

The quickest way to start a new topic is to type the topic name into the Go/Search box, click "Go" and click "create this page" link.

Copy a topic

To copy part or all of a topic into another one open up the source and destination topics and click the "edit" link on both. Select the desired markup text from the source and paste it into the destination. Click the "cancel" link on the source to close the edit box.
