Help By default, help comes through an animated Office Assistant in which you type a question and choose a help topic from those offered in response. Alternatively, turn the Assistant off and use a more traditional help window. If none of the articles offered meet your needs, search for help on the Web from Microsoft's tech support site. Other help features include special tools for WordPerfect users, a What's This fea- ture that opens ScreenTips explaining interface elements and character formatting, and the Detect and Repair command, which searches for problems in Word's ap- plication files and attempts to fix them.
