To help you understand the information in the document, the Guide uses some general techniques to set off certain text elements. Here you will find the agreement on these techniques.

Keys: Keys such as Enter, Esc, Del and the like will be shown with the lettering on the keys themselves, without quotation marks.

When referring to cursor control keys (arrow keys), we will use the phrase cursor control keys when we need to refer to all these keys at once. If we need to refer to these keys individually, we will use the expressions Up Arrow, Down Arrow, Right Arrow, and Left Arrow.

Keyboard Shortcuts: When you need to press a combination of two keys to execute some command, it will be presented as Ctrl + F3.

Buttons: The names of the buttons in a form will be presented by their names without quotation marks, for example, OK, Cancel, Delete, and so forth.

1C:Enterprise Script Keywords: 1C:Enterprise script keywords will be highlighted by a font and written in the manner they are written in software modules: WorkingDate. In the text you will come across references to descriptions of sections or elements of the 1C:Enterprise script (properties, methods, etc). To view these descriptions, use Help content (1C:Enterprise script branch).

Menu Actions: The following framework is used to describe selection of a menu item: Menu – Submenu – Submenu – … – Item. Example: "To select the image scale, use the Table – Type – Scale item," which is equivalent to the text: "To select the image scale, use the Scale item from the Type submenu of the Table menu of the software main menu". If the selection is not to be made in the main menu, this is specifically described.

1C:Enterprise Operation modes: 1C:Enterprise operates in two modes: configuration customization and verification mode (hereinafter referred to as the Designer mode or Designer when related to developing or editing a configuration) and configuration running mode (1C:Enterprise mode from here on).

For the purposes of this guide a user is a specialist who develops or supports a configuration.

%USERPROFILE% expression refers to a variable in Windows environment

that contains a path to the directory of the current user profile. If default installation is used (for the user name Ivanov), the path will look as follows:

C:\Documents and Settings\Ivanov

%APPDATA% expression refers to a Windows environment variable that contains a path to a directory (in the current user profile) for the applications to store data. If default installation is used (for the user name Ivanov), the path will look as follows:

C:\Documents and Settings\Ivanov\Application Data

In Windows Vista and above, this path will appear as follows:


The %LOCALAPPDATA% expression refers to a variable in Windows Vista and above that contains a path to the directory (in the current user profile) where user-specific application data are stored. In a default installation (and for user Ivanov), this path will appear as follows:


The %ALLUSERSPROFILE% expression refers to a variable in Windows that contains a path to the directory available for all system users. In a default installation this path will appear as follows:

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users

For Windows Vista this path appears as follows:


Executable files for both Windows and Linux are named in the same way regardless of the OS used and without specifying the extension (if a file has one). Therefore, 1cv8.exe executable file is referred to as 1cv8. In this case, .exe extension should be added in Windows (file names are NOT case-sensitive), and nothing has to be added in Linux (file names ARE case-sensitive).
