ATTENTION iOS 7 USERS

With the release of iOS 7 a minor display error can occur when using an iPad. The error presents itself as body text running off the right edge of the screen. To fix this error:

• Double click on the home button. This will open the multitasking window.

• Swipe the large image of the Sourcebook toward the top of the screen. This will cause the program to close.

• Press the home button once to return to the home screen.

• Then, make sure that the iPad is oriented in portrait mode (held vertically, with the home button on the bottom of the screen) and reopen the Sourcebook application. The program should operate normally now.

Tips for Using the App:

When you log in and see the home screen, you may begin by entering a search or by browsing the CPOLS and the Codes.

To Search
Tap the "Search" button from either the home screen center area or from any screen on the persistent toolbar at the bottom of the app.



Begin typing a word or phrase. As you type, a listing will appear in the document screen of the most relevant results of the search.



The "cancel" button will stop the search and lower the keyboard to reveal the full screen.



Scroll down the page to see the full list of results. Use the "x" button to clear the search box and enter a new search term.



When you find a topic that you would like to explore, tap on that search result to go to the page in the CPOLS or Codes with your search word(s) highlighted in yellow. You will now be in Browse mode. The app will take you to the first instance of your search term on that page, and then you can scroll down to see if there are subsequent instances highlighted in yellow.



To Browse


Select the document you wish to browse, either CPOLS or California Codes. Tap on the entries in the table of contents until you get to a content page.



Navigation Tips
Use the forward and backward arrows at the top and bottom of each document page to go forward one page or back one page in the document you are on (CPOLS or Codes).

Tap the word INDEX at the top and bottom of each document page to return from the current page to its entry in the table of contents.

Settings
Navigate to the settings screen by tapping Settings from the persistent toolbar at the bottom of the app. You can re-download the database or log out. It is unlikely that you will need to use these tools very often.
