The manual on hand consists of 5 chapters.
Chapter 1, Survey, provides a rough survey of the editor's features and abilities, leaving out the details.
Chapter 2, First Steps, is a tutorial to learn how to use the editor. It is particularly suitable for private studies because of its numerous pictures and examples. In this chapter, you will only find descriptions of the most important elements of the editor. After you have read this chapter, you will find more comprehensive information in chapter 3 to 4, if needed.
Chapter 3, The Editor and Its Commands, contains a complete description of all the editor's features. This chapter is relevant in all doubtful cases in usage. You should read it through, at least once, if you wish to be able to use the editor supremely well.
Chapter 4, exaEdit Synopsis, is intended for quick reference. Its key words represent functions of the editor (e.g. `delete one line') with descriptions of one or more solutions to them.
Chapter 5, The exaEdit Messages, provides a quite comprehensive list of exaEdit messages, together with page reference(s) to closer explanations of the individual message.
