Tips on Using the Book Reader

The CIMPLICITY HMI Book Reader uses the Adobe Acrobat Reader. Here are
some tips for using the Acrobat Reader:
There are no jumps from the Contents or Index pages of the
CIMPLICITY documentation. If you find an entry in the
Contents or Index, you can use the Find tool to find the word in
the body of the document, or to find the page number.
If you are accessing on-line documentation over a network share,
the DOC directory must be on a mapped drive (such as
X:\doc). The index will not work with a UNC path name (such
as \\computer\share\doc).
If you see books listed multiple times in your search results, it
means you have the index file loaded multiple times. To
remove duplicate index entries:

Using the Book Reader


From the Tools menu, select Search.


Select Indexes.


Remove any duplicate index entries.
