I guess I'd like to take a different tack here. I am new and just learning,
and have tried to keep my questions low while I'm still learning what to do.
Mainly my initial questions were inquiring as to the capabilities of the
software suited toward my experience and my needs. But now quite frankly I'm
worried about what I should be posting here. What sort of questions *are*
appropriate to this forum?

You are given an increadable package here, you have to put some effort in.
