Q: When I try to open the document, the message
"navigation canceled" shows. How can this be fixed?
A: Some versions of Windows, for security purposes, will block a downloaded CHM file from showing its contents. If you downloaded the plain help file, you will need to unblock the content. Right-click on the file and choose "Properties" from the pop-up menu. In the Properties dialog, click the "Unblock" button and then click "OK". The document should work correctly after that.
Q: I'd prefer the font to be a different size.
Can it be changed?
A: Click the Font button in the toolbar. Each time it's clicked, the font will change to a different size.
Q: After reading, I'd like to bookmark my place

A: In the left-hand pane, choose the Favorites tab. Click the "Add" button to save the page you're on. (You can bookmark several different pages this way.) When you open the document again, select the Favorites tab again and double-click on the desired item in the list.
