When you click Create, Friday generates web pages for you automatically. It generates a main "index" page containing all of your Questions. Each Question on this index page is a clickable link to the corresponding Answer page, which Friday also generates. Friday generates all of the file names and links automatically for you. Friday frees you to do the interesting stuff and makes your computer do what computers are so good at: the dumb, mind-numbing, boring chore of keeping all the file names and links straight. Settings Choose FAQ, Settings from the menu bar or press Ctrl+S to see the Settings dialog box.
This is where you choose settings that affect the overall appearance and behavior of your FAQ. We'll discuss each option in detail later in the tutorial.
