Frequently Asked Questions
How does the left-hand navigation work?
To open or close a topic, click on it. A triangle symbol means the topic is closed, while a dash means its open. When a topic is open, it moves to the top of the left-hand navigation pane, and its subtopics are shown. Click on any subtopic to open it. To see the other topics above the one that is open, close the topic.
How do I view separate parts of the document in separate screens?
Open the section of interest. Right click on the link for the second section of interest. Select “Open link in a new window with navigation”. This approach works for any link you wish to view in a separate window.

Linked sections are opening in new windows and not new tabs. How do I change the behavior?
In your browser, find the settings for opening pages in tabs instead of windows. In Internet Explorer, go to Tools>Internet Options>Tabs>Settings and select “Always open pop-ups in a new tab”.

Can I keep a Read More open when I navigate to a new page?
Suppose you have a “read more” section open and then click a link to another section. If you then click the “back” arrow, the “read more” section that was previously open is then closed. When you use a back arrow, the page reloads and all “read mores” are closed on the reload. It may be helpful to review the answer to “How do I view separate parts of the document in separate screens.
