Guidance and help for first time users of the portal.
You can search in the normal way, by typing your text into the search bar, and clicking:
The predictive search will try to match a book, PDF or topic to your search entry, if appropriate.
If you search and there are no close or matching results, try removing the search term or filters. If you are not sure what you need, a blank search is a good place to start from as it allows you to filter and add keywords as you go.
You can use filters to refine your search results. These are shown under the search bar on
the home page:
Search results can be one of these formats. For each type of document, click the title to open the content:
: This relates to a Napatech book or publication. You can scroll through a book, and save a PDF copy of the book from the Downloads page.
: This is a Napatech published PDF. You can download it directly from the search pane, or click the title to see a preview and other PDF options.
: This is a small section of a book, for example, a concept or task. The location of the topic is shown in the breadcrumb. You can preview topics without opening them.
