That's just a few!! If you search 2+2 or any of the forums you will find a wealth of information.
One of the best things is right there in your HM it's the ARTICLES SECTION,open that and start @ the beginning PLUGGING LEAKS 01 and use it.
It will guide you through a lot of the what you are asking for,also showing you a lot about your game.After doing the first few articles you should have a good grasp on some of HMs capabilities.
I also just started using HM and found the articles to be great in every aspect, even if you do not have a big enough hand history to be accurate it still gets you using the software.
Hope this helps.
This has been some really good information. I will look into the Articles section soon, but I was wondering if there is a way to configure your HUD and seeing the layout without being in a game? I play on PS and FT. I'd love to be able to play with a layout with out being in a game. I know you can use the Replayer, but is there an exact PS or FT layout that you can use off line? I mainly play tournaments or full ring.
Thanks for any help!
