well as how to leverage the keyboard hot keys. Each tutorial is approximately 2 minutes long. Please

Built In Help Guide - Under DataLore Help on the Main Menu, you will find a very helpful user guide
that explains how to use DataLore, how to perform different searches, from simple to complex, using
the more "Lore" sidebar, a handy text shorthand reference page, and much more. You can also use the
information in the more Lore sidebar to guide you as you move through your various searches.
Using Special Characters - This is a handy reference page from the built in Help Guide, that lists the
special characters and text shorthand with a handy legend to show you what each one means and how
you can use them in your searches. This page also illustrates examples on using special characters to
perform more complex search queries and the different ways you can combine characters to produce
even more defined search results. You could either print this page, save it as a .pdf or simply access it
from the built-in help guide.
