But our Help shall be also valuable for experienced users. Therefore GenJ provides us with a very modern feature:
A wiki-based1) user information: that means every user can (and should) contribute to correct and improve this »manual«.

When you have run into a problem and found a solution, why not help others who will possibly experience the same problem?
:!: So give your feedback via the GenJ forum.

How does it work technically?

Genj reads the used(!) pages of the wiki into the directory of the Options Settings '.genj3' in your local installation. Thus we have always the newest version available. And we can use it also offline.

The menu 'Help' → 'Overview' opens the tab and shows the table of content. That is the way to come back if we get lost in the hypertext. :-)

Search in the Help-wiki

In the Help-wiki http://genj.sourceforge.net/wiki/en/manual/overview there is an excellent search function in the right column. It enables us easily to find any term in the Help-wiki. The following operators are supported:

[-] exclude this word, e.g. -table
[*] wildcard, e.g. *media to find also multimedia
[” ”] phrase search, e.g. ”table view
[|] or

For those who are already a bit familiar with Genj the tooltips (see The GenJ Window and its Components) and the Context Menu might suffice.
