One of the best ways to learn is to get in trouble, so that you can bump up against real questions related to what you are working on. That creates an urgent need to get answers to those specific questions.

CorelDRAW recognized this and introduced the Hints docker, which can be displayed or hidden at will. When you click on a tool or are about to do something with that tool, the Hints docker displays help information directly related to what you are doing, thus providing you with those immediate answers in an efficient manner, much like the manuals just mentioned. It’s like automating the traditional help menus only providing answers before you’ve even had a chance to formulate the question.
