Reading tips

Applicable for STM32MP13x lines, STM32MP15x lines

This article provides a few tips for easy reading of this user guide.

1. Browsing[edit source]

Chrome and Firefox browsers are recommended.

The user guide contains hundreds of articles (aka pages). As for any wiki website, an article might refer to tens of other articles, which might themselves refer to tens of other articles (and so on). It may be tempting to follow these links at the risk of moving away from the original article.

The articles are designed to be, as far as possible, self-sufficient.

With this in mind, it is good practice to keep the main article open in your browser, and to open any article linked by the main article in a new browser tab. Focus on the main article is hence maintained.

2. Links[edit source]

Any link, either to an article of the user guide or to an internet website, appears in blue.


3. Image, clickable image and clickable image maps[edit source]

An image might be:

  • a normal image - the image doesn't link to any destination
  • a clickable image - the entire area of the image links to a single destination
  • a clickable image map - some areas of the image link to multiple destinations

Move your mouse pointer over the images below to see what the mouse pointer and the display looks like for each image.
