Take The Tour of PC*Miler Highway Mapping

To begin the Tour, double‐click on the PC*MILER icon on your desktop to open the program, or click the Windows Start menu and select All Programs (or the equivalent for your version of Windows) > PCMILER 29 > PCMILER 29.

When you first open PC*MILER, you’ll see an active route window on the left, the PC*MILER map window on the right, and a Ribbon toolbar at the top. The Ribbon contains layered toolbars organized in tabs like a set of file folders. When you click a tab, the attached toolbar becomes visible. Users of Microsoft Office Word® or Excel® 2007 and higher will already be familiar with the Ribbon format.

The options in each toolbar on the Ribbon pertain to tasks that are related to each other. For example, all tools in the Map tab perform tasks related to the map window. The screenshot below shows your initial view of PC*MILER, with the Routes toolbar visible. This toolbar has three groups of tools: General, “Route 1” (the name of this group reflects the name of the currently active route in the Routes window), and Utilities.
