  • This is a Keyword search where you can look for particular things you would like to learn about the software, eg: if you want to learn about the trace bitmap tool, you would simply type in "trace bitmap".
    This would then bring up any videos that have been tagged as containing the trace bitmap tool as per the image below
You will also notice that if the text you typed in as a keyword appears within the short summary of the tutorial, then this will be highlighted.

Next you would choose the tutorial most applicable to you by reading the brief summary, in this instance we might choose the "Image to Vector Logo" tutorial, so we would click on the "View Tutorial" button.
This will then bring us onto the tutorials page which will look like the above image.
It contains:
  • A more detailed description of the video,
    An option to download the Video & Files for offline viewing,
    Which software this tutorial is compatible with,
    The Tutorial Video,
    Video Bookmarks
    Related Videos.
If the Tutorial Browser detects you have searched for something that matches all or part of a Video Bookmark then you will receive an alert on the right hand side of the screen like the image above.
You will also see that the section/s within the video bookmarks will also be highlighted for your attention.

If you click on the link in the alert or within the video bookmarks, this will take you straight into the video, to the specific moment where the presenter starts to discuss that particular feature in the software.

Related Videos are tutorials which the presenter has suggested the user might be interested in learning more about a specific feature in the software, or videos which the presenter feels leads nicely on from this particular tutorial.

Once you have finished watching a particular video and you wish to go back to the Tutorial Home Page simply click "Go Back" on the tutorial options

Vectric is dedicated to helping users get the most out of their learning through these Tutorial Videos, so this system has been created so that it is constantly learning what users are searching for to learn and this will help us create new content in the future.
