Unless you really like manuals, and even if you do, I hope you seriously consider using the tutorial I linked to yesterday or another one.  I haven't looked at any of the tutorials to any extent but I've talked with a number of people, all of them experienced Windows users and they all found the manual to be not very helpful on this subject.  it's typical dry manual writing.  Demonstration would, in my opinion for most people, be much more useful and clear.

I need to read the help manual to get a better understanding of these
modes. I think I'm confusing myself by using the up and down arrow keys
to look at a line, then use the numpad 8 to see if I'm on that line.
ETC. Thanks for the help.
