The user manual is intended to provide a first-time user with a complete overview of the Masonry Analysis Structural Systems software. The program itself provides extensive help files, as well as interactive guidance. To open the help menu:

Select Help in the toolbar at the top of the application or press F1 on the keyboard

In addition to the help files, the program provides interactive guidance.  Throughout the design process, a status bar at the bottom of the screen provides helpful tips as well as instructions on which design step to proceed to. Pop-up windows also provide users with warnings and additional aid.
