(Redirected from About this Analytica wiki)

When inside Analytica, there are several ways to link directly to a page explaining a feature or function in your default web browser.

Open wiki from the Analytica Help menu

You can open the Analytica Wiki home page by selecting Analytica wiki from Analytica's Help menu:

The three top options in the Help menu, User Guide, Optimizer, and Tutorial, each open the selected document as a PDF from Analytica 4.6 and earlier. From Analytica 5.0, they open the same content in this wiki, as the Analytica User Guide, Optimizer, or Analytica Tutorial respectively. These online versions have several advantages over the PDF documents:
  • They contain numerous clickable cross-links;
  • you can search them all simultaneously using the search box at the top right of this page or from the Find dialog (ctrl-F) inside Analytica;
  • they are continuously updated; and
  • you can comment on them or improve them yourself in the wiki.
