Faq after the course

 

- How can I send a local CMap to other user?

 

A local map is a file in the folder recognizable from Edit (in View window)/Preferences/General/Root folder for my cmaps the extension cmap; you have to attach this file in a mail. Other user will put the file in her root folder for my cmaps before opening the program. If you receive a map from other Cmap user, you have to put the file in your root folder  before opening the program

 

- How I can import a web page?

  1. Select  “Add web address” in File Menu of the View window;
  2. compile the box
  3. Drag and drop the resource on the relative concept

- How can I insert the title - the focus question - of the CMap?

You have to make a "disguised" concept with the Styles palette (Ctrl+T of Format/Styles in the map window), modifying the properties of the Font, Object, Line - p.e. Font: Bold/Red; Object: Color/No Fill; Line: Color/No Fill
