                                          To avoid redundancy and where logical to
                                          do so, a procedure refers to a previous
                                          procedure.

                                          In this case, to View Packet Metadata, the
                                          procedure tells the user to first “Find the
                                          packet.” The procedure for finding the
                                          packet immediately precedes the one
                                          shown.




                                          Strategically placed “tips,” embedded in the
                                          procedures, help the user remember key
                                          tasks . . .

                                                  “Tip: To find out in which packets an
                                                  object is mastered or referenced,
                                                  click the In Packet button, then click
                                                  to highlight the object metadata and
                                                  click Confirm.”
