A new mode called ‘Live Guide’ inside of ‘Nero KnowHow PLUS’ enables users to get context sensitive tips & tricks, including help from within Nero applications. ‘Live Guide’ directly links to related FAQs, manuals pages, and tutorials within the main Suite applications in regards to the actual use case, application mode, or task performed inside of the given application (also see Nero KnowHow 00137).

The new context sensitive window also allows sending feedback, as well as reporting issues (support tickets).
