Apart from reading the manual, another good way to get familiar with StrongED (and other RISC OS apps) is to use interactive help. Run Help from the Apps folder on the iconbar, then hover the pointer over things you want to know about. For example, most icons on StrongED's toolbar support IA help.
Also, most modes have their own StrongHelp manual, click Select (left mouse button) over the 'Info' icon (leftmost) on the toolbar.

Thanks for the suggestion. Problem is that it's a standard RO error window and earlier versions of RO don't allow you to alter the number of buttons, or even the text on the buttons. As StrongED still supports those versions what can be done is limited, the only viable option is probably to use a custom window.

Thanks, but I'm not THE developer. StrongED was started by Guttorm Vik in 1989(!) as StrongED I. In 1991 Guttorm decided that there were too many limitations in StrongED I and began work on StrongED II. Guttorm left the RISC OS scene in 1999, and I took up StrongED development in late 2000 and I'm still on the job.
