Using the Product Manager
This section provides a general overview of the Product Manager and its functions.
For details on performing specific tasks and using specific dialog boxes, refer to the
appropriate chapters in this manual.
Use standard keyboard navigation in dialog boxes. For example, use the Tab, arrow,
and backspace keys to move through dialog box fields and the Enter key to perform
default button functions.
Using Dialog Boxes
Buttons such as OK, Activate and Close or Cancel initiate functions in a dialog box.
There is a difference between the OK and Activate buttons. The OK button saves the
data you entered and closes the dialog box. The Activate button saves the data you
entered without closing the dialog box, unless there is a Close button in which case,
Activate saves the information without closing the box. There is also a difference
between the Close and Cancel buttons. The Close button closes the dialog box and
saves the data you entered. The Cancel button cancels the operation and closes the
dialog box without saving the information you entered.
