Highlight Icons and Boxes
We have used a few special icons and text box types to alert you to important information.
The Icons appear both in the boxes, where addition explanation is required, or bare, to highlight a section of the text.
The "New in 2.0" icon alerts you to features new in MandalaMaker Version 2, and to behavior in Version 2 which differs from the behavior of Version 1.
If you are a veteran of the original MandalaMaker, you will want to pay special attention to these areas.
The Alert Icon is used to let you know about potential pitfalls and places where confusion can arise.
All readers of this manual will want to be aware of these areas.
