Here is a link to a Word document that explains each task along with other options for creating and using tasks.

NB! This links to latest version of document.

Demos and videos about the demos are being made now. For links to that content, see the Quick Reference > Demo section in the document.

A web and mobile version of the document will be posted either today or next week. There will also be Python and .NET add-ons for viewing the web version.

You can use this thread to ask questions about each task as well as the demos. However, if you need help with your layout or project, make a different thread.
