Screencast tutorial for the new LAS version
Lively data, 14 August 2012
As you may have noticed, the new LAS interface installed with the new version (see our news) significantly differs from the previous one. We are pleased to propose new Lively Data with new practical examples to get hand's with new buttons, new options, ... And because some pictures are better than a long speech, we propose the Lively Data as a screencast tutorial, where each step is directly described by markers on the interface. So, play the sequence below and try to do yourself. Click on the video to stop the sequence. If you prefer written instructions, read the main steps in the caption at the bottom of the video screen.
