AZZ Cardfile: getting started

Each card consists of two elements:
  1. Title - thats how you name the card, it is displayed in the List on the left, and as a header on the top of the card when you select it in List.
  2. Card - all the contents in the right pane.
Cards are stored in data file which carry extension .azz. When you first save the newly created data file, program asks where to keep it. Best create subfolder inside My Documents for all AZZ files, but you can keep the elsewhere too. It is possible to have separate azz files for different things like contacts, notes, references, recipes etc. or keep all the bits of info in one file.
