·      Make a note of the abbreviations used first and then proceed to read the help topics, including these tips.

·      The 'caps lock' should be off when you are typing your text. However, you can use capital letters judiciously, whenever needed. For more details, click here.

·      You should read and understand the Tamil key mappings thoroughly.

·      To get 'ó' in between a word, type 'nh'. For more such special cases, click here.

·      Azhagi provides you with 'always-on-top' floaters (Ctrl+F7 and Shift+F7) of the Tamil 'key mappings summary' which you can move around and keep on top of any window so that beginners can practise typing in any windows application, seeing the key'mappings side by side.

·      Certain menu items of Azhagi have been explained individually. Click here to read the same.

·      The frequently asked questions section of this help document  provides you answers for the most frequent queries of the users. Whenever you have a problem or question, please do refer to this for a solution/answer.

·      You can directly type in Tamil (Hindi, etc.) in MS-Word, Excel, PowerPoint, PageMaker, Photoshop, Outlook Express, Gmail, Skype, Blog, Facebook, etc.

·      Press 'F1' at any time during execution of Azhagi to invoke detailed Help.

·      Tool tips are provided for many items. Just move the cursor over any item, wait a moment and you can see the item info.

·      If you want the English text you type to be visible (transparent), you should type in ETA  only. If you type in TTA , you can effect non-transparent transliteration only. English text you type will not be visible in that case.

·      You can use 'F10' to toggle between English and Tamil. By this way, you can type mixed text (i.e. both English and Tamil).

·      There is a learner's / tutor's keypad in Azhagi.

·      There are 3 typing modes - Phonetic, Tamilnet99 and Tamil Typewriter.

·      When you do TT (i.e. type/edit in ETA), you cannot effect any typing/editing in the TTA (Tamil text area).

·      When you do NTT (i.e. type/edit in TTA), you cannot effect any typing/editing in ETA (English text area).

·      Saving a file during NTT creates a single file, whereas saving a file during TT creates 3 files.

·      If ever you delete your Tamil file (created during TT) by mistake, never worry. It can be easily recovered from it's support file (filename ending with `eb`) or corresponding English file (filename ending with `e`).
