<html>
<p>...that if a book has more than one author, you should separate
their names by a semi-colon, so that Tellico will know how to split them
and use them separately.</p>
<p>Any other field which allows multiple values should be entered the
same way, with a semi-colon (;) separating each value.</p>
</html>
</tip>
<tip category="Tellico">
<html>
<p>...that you can change which fields are shown in the column view by
right-clicking on the column header.
</html>
</tip>
<tip category="Tellico">
<html>
<p>...that you can add, edit, or modify the fields in the collection using
the Field Editor. The arrow buttons below the field list can be used to change the
position of the field in the list, which affects the placement in the entry
editor.</p>
</html>
</tip>
<tip category="Tellico">
<html>
<p>...that if you want to filter by a Checkbox field, a value of
"true" should be used. If you'd like to filter to
show only the science fiction books which you've not read, for
example, check the <em>Match all of the
following</em> button, set the first rule to have "Genre"
"contains" "Science Fiction" (no quotes) and the second rule to
have "Read" "does not contain" "true" (no quotes).</p>
</html>
</tip>
<tip category="Tellico">
<html>
<p>...that if a non-word character is used in the Quick Filter, the text is
interpreted as a regular expression.</p>
<p>To show only books which are by Weber or Bujold, for example, then
type "weber|bujold" (no quotes) in the filter box.</p>

<html>
<p>...that you can add, edit, and delete string macros for bibliographies.</p>

<tip category="Tellico">
<html>
<p>...that if more than one field is formatted as a name, then an additional
group named "People" is added to the collection, allowing authors and editors
to be sorted or printed together, for example.</p>
</html>
</tip>
<tip category="Tellico">
<html>
<p>...that you can modify the appearance of the printed output by modifying
the <tt>tellico-printing.xsl</tt> file. The file generates HTML, and the CSS
within the stylesheet governs things like the font, the margins, etc.</p>

<p>...that you can import using any generic XSL stylesheet which
outputs a valid Tellico XML file.</p>

keyboard to scroll to the next entry that starts with that letter.</p>

<tip category="Tellico">
<html>
<p>...that you can use a field with a derived value to combine multiple separated fields
into a single field. Use a derived value template
similar to "Value: %{fielda}%{fieldb}" where %{...} gets replaced with the
appropriate field value. This is useful to collect multiple values in a
single field, e.g. for better grouping, and to combine fields of different
types by respecting proper sorting at the same time. Consider for example
a number field followed by a text subfield with entries 3b, 14a.</p>
