Using ARM-specific cheat sheets

Cheat sheets are working examples that you can use to guide you through a specific task. Each step in the task is listed in the Cheat Sheets view and the current step is highlighted and expanded. You must perform each step in turn to complete the task.

To use a cheat sheet:

  1. Select Cheat Sheet... from the Help menu.

  2. Select a cheat sheet from the list or use Browse... to select from a file, see the following figure.

  3. Click on OK.

  4. Click on the Click to Begin link on the Introduction step to start the task. If you open a cheat sheet more than once, the link on the Introduction step changes text to Click to Restart.

  5. Follow the instructions step by step. When you complete an instruction, click on the Click to Complete link to move on to the next instruction. Some of the instructions might have a Click to Perform link for you to use if you want that instruction to be performed automatically by the cheat sheet.

The task is complete when you have performed every step listed in the Cheat Sheets view. This is shown by the tick icon shown in the left-hand margin of the cheat sheet see Figure 23.

Figure 23 shows a typical example of a cheat sheet. Steps one and two are shown as complete, step three (the current step) is highlighted and expanded ready for use. Four instructions are listed in step three, complete each instruction in turn. When step three is fully complete, the cheat sheet moves on to populate and reveal the instructions in step four.


Subsequent steps are not populated until you fully complete the previous step.
