User Guide and Tutorials

User Guide

The User Guide is a document created by the WoodWorks® Design Office Technical Support staff. For ease of use, the User Guide has been split into multiple documents. The document includes instructions for operating the WoodWorks® Design Office programs as well as information on the software design settings. All of the tutorials for Sizer, Shearwalls, Connections and the Database Editor have been split into multiple documents which can be downloaded as individual tutorials or as packages of all the tutorials for each program. Detailed engineering information used in the WoodWorks® Design Office programs can be found in the help files, which are accessible through the program help menu or by clicking F1.
